synopsis
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
As I have heard from you, the whole existence is the answer, not the question. So when the answer exists, not the question, why does the question come from the answer?
Question 2
Lao Tzu and you keep on saying, 'Just be ordinary.' However you seem to be so extraordinary -- your appearance, your lifestyle. Is there a lot of difference between a master and an ordinary enlightened person?
Question 3
After two years with you I seem to have become an idiot. I don't know where I'm going or what I want or even what I like. I find this state very painful. And in all this suffering I feel that I am growing apart from, rather than closer to you.
Question 4
I often get the feeling that you don't care about us, not in the way I have known caring in the past. How does a buddha care?
Question 5
I often get the feeling that your hands are speaking to us, and they arc saying something different from your words. Are you pointing at the moon?
Question 6 from Pratima
When you look at us what exactly do you see?
Question 7
You said a cat is as aware as a buddha. But why is a cat not willing to give a discourse every morning like you?
Question 8
Here are some of Werner Erhard's sutras from his 'Book of lies'. Could you comment on one or more of these?
The truth doesn't mean anything. It just is.
If you experience it, it is the truth.
The same thing believed is a lie.
Obviously the truth is what's so.
Not so obviously, it's also so what.
Happiness is a function of accepting what is.
Love is a function of communication.
Health is a function of participation.
Self-expression is a function of responsibility.
It is easier to ride a horse in the direction he's going.
Life is a ripoff when you expect to get what you want.
Life works when you choose what you get.
Actually what you got is what you chose.
So move on, choose it.
If you're not alright the way you are
It takes a lot of effort to get better.
Realize you're alright the way you are,
And you'll get better naturally.
Life is a game.
In order to have a game something has to
Be more important than something else.
If what already is, is more important
Than what isn't, the game is over.
So life is a game in which what isn't
Is more important than what is.
Let the good times roll!
This is it.
There are no hidden meanings.
All that mystical stuff is just what's so.
A master is one who found out.
If you could really accept that you weren't okay
You could stop proving you were okay.
If you could stop proving that you were okay
You could get that it was okay not to be okay.
If you could get that it was okay not to be okay
You could get that you were okay the way you are.
You're okay, get it?
