- CD-ROM on this chapter: These discourses are based on the sutras of the Mandukya and Isa Upanishads.
- Question 1 from Oscar Mann
- Osho, I am another 'development worker' whose questions you answered most beautifully yesterday.
- For me, though, one question remains: Working to help brothers out of the molasses seems also to keep me from flying. Should we fly and leave them be, and stay here in this magic place, for example? Or should we stay on land to help? How is a synthesis possible?
- Question 2 from Sw Veet Adam
- Osho, in your early years you were alone on your path and revolting against belonging to any family, group, community, religion, society or country. Now you have found, and you relax in your being.
- Around you a community is created, and with it the seeds of establishment.
- Now, I want to be close to you and to the source, but I am revolting against being part of these intense masses, groups (sleeping) and group-leaders (half-sleeping). I hear your voice saying, "This is a community of individuals but..."
- Here I am again, sitting near the river, hearing the birds' songs, seeing them flying and playing, and meditation happens to me.
- Now, the part in me which is revolting is asking if I know deeply in my heart that nature is the right space for my growth, for my therapy and for my meditation.
- Why should I again fall into the groups?
- If I know the bullshit that is running in my mind, why should I look for meditation in intense places? And there is no urge in me to listen to the 'half-mirror'.
- Question 3 from Deva Kalimba
- I have no claim to gifts or fame,
- But I have never heard you say my name.
- Oh, Osho, please set me free,
- And tell a little joke for me.
