Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Ma Prem Jeevan
Beloved Osho, I have heard....
A psychologist wants to experiment with his twin sons. He takes them down to his group rooms and puts each in a room by himself. In Ike's room he loads in a pile of TV-advertised, hard-sell toys. Ike is diagnosed as a complaining, negative pessimist. In Mike's room he loads in an enormous pile of manure. Mike is the optimist.
An hour after they are locked in, he enters Ike's room. There is Ike tossing out toy after toy, complaining, "This is not any good, that one won't work."
As he opens the door into the second room he is unable to find his son for a few moments. But he hears his voice; it is saying, "There's gotta be a pony, there's gotta be a pony." And as he appears he is shown frantically digging through the manure, looking for the pony.
I have changed rooms; I have got my eye out for the pony.
Question 2
I need to trust so badly, and I suffer because I don't. From where am I to find the courage to trust my killer?
Question 3
I believe there is a God. There must be something keeping the universe together. But deep in myself I don't feel that God is there or you are there, or that God is with me. I experience myself as lost and unprotected in a threatening world. If feel only comfortable when I am alone. I miss that basic trust. The knowledge I gathered, the feelings I have felt, the experiences I have had, did not lead me to an inner trust.
Can you please help me?
Question 4
Beloved Osho, how come I'm so crazy about you?
