Reader of the questions: Ma Deva Anando.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, you are for me, the most extraordinary person I can imagine. Yet I know that you feel ordinary. Where is the door for a talented and gifted person or a genius to feel and become ordinary? I see that each time I feel special, something goes wrong. But I have still not found the door to real modesty and simplicity. Could you please say something about that?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, when I write down a question to you, with every word, more and more questions are arising within me. It is almost impossible to write down a single sentence without getting lost in the jungle of questions. By the time I am finished with one question, I am completely exhausted. I want to know it all, Osho, so desperately, that tears are coming in my eyes. It might be the wrong way to start, but I want to know it all. I want to ask everything and I want to know all the answers to everything. Beloved answer, would you please comment?
Question 3 from Savita
Beloved Osho, do all disciples become devotees? In your communes, I have loved you, got lost in you, been emptied out by you. Away, your picture has lit me up when I've gone dark. Your voice on tapes has woken me when I've been snoozing and made me snooze when I've been awake. You are my blood, my bone and marrow and yet, and yet Osho, I do not see myself as a devotee. When I see those who care for your body, I can never imagine how I could manage such a thing, so generously and selflessly, even though I used to deep-down dream my role should one day be to serve, completely lost in love. If I never become what you call a devotee, have I a destiny that separates me from you?
Question 4 from Radha
Beloved Osho, when we reach a point where insanity can occur, at that state, a breakthrough in consciousness can also occur. Please tell us how to shift the gear from insanity to consciousness?
Question 5
Beloved Osho, I want to do a perfect job and I don't see this as a problem but when I condemn myself for doing an imperfect job, it doesn't feel right. Is there a way to accept our failures gracefully?
Question 6 from Sw Milarepa
Beloved Osho, the West conceived instant coffee. The East conceived instant enlightenment. What is the difference?
