Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You have said that there are no goals in life, no purpose. And yet we are all here with enlightenment as our goal. Please speak on this.
Question 2
What is the difference between reaction and response?
Question 3
If one has no desire for one's own enlightenment, but only for that of others -- does one have a problem?
Question 4
Why is it that the habits I judge bad for me -- smoking, overeating etc, are the most persistent?
Question 5
If I don't do anything I find that I start feeling invisible instead of feeling rooted in the earth. Is it possible to be both?
Question 6
When I become aware of my thoughts or my breathing, they immediately change. Is this natural, or an ingrained habit of subtly not accepting what is?
Question 7
You said recently that to reach enlightenment you first have to go through a total frustration where you completely lose hope. But it seems impossible to lose hope when you know that a master is helping you by his presence.
Question 8
Lao Tzu seems to be the most truthful man, but George Gurdjieff used to paint sparrows and sell them as canaries. Lao Tzu says to do nothing and realize, Gurdjieff says only a superhuman effort will do. Is Gurdjieff's realization as great as Lao Tzu's? How do you explain the difference?
Question 9
How can man best reach the stars?
Question 10
I feel so much freedom and love to hear you say: If you do not like to meditate until the time you feel like doing so, there is no harm in doing something else that interests you. But regretfully, how and why is it that some of your disciples who do not meditate expect others to do so, at times through indirect criticism, as if it is a must!
Question 11
How is progress, whether in civilization, culture or religion, possible if we accept life as it is and do not seek to change it in any way?
