Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
You tell us again and again not to desire enlightenment and yet you also remind us again and again how impoverished and what rubbish our lives are, and tell us how blissful and rich enlightenment is. How can one avoid preferring bliss to rubbish?
Question 2
It is reported that St. Francis of Assisi could talk with birds and they would listen. Is this prayer? I would love to hear you talk a bit more about prayer.
Question 3
You have said that we should surrender to you. Is this a device to keep us from 'pushing the river'? Could we surrender to a rock, a tree or a flower and get the same result? Or is there something different in surrendering to an enlightened one?
Question 4
Do you enjoy the birds during the discourse? Do the birds enjoy you?
Question 5
I used to come out of the morning discourses feeling inspired and invigorated. Now I am usually drained. I want to be alone and I go home and sleep for a couple of hours. Why is this?
Question 6
I often fantasize about you. I imagine talking with you, going for a walk, having tea, and other situations. It gives me a feeling of closeness to you and it is comforting. But sometimes I worry: Maybe I'm just strengthening another dream and shouldn't indulge. Should I view these images as just more idle dreams or can they be helpful in feeling my connection to you?
Question 7
Would you tell us about the name you give to us? Does it mean our becoming? Or our inner nature? Should we be identified with it? Or is it just a joke?
Question 8
How can I differentiate between the whole moving through me as a part and me moving separately as a part?
