Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Sw Prem Indivar
Beloved master, I am confused about which path I am on. Sometimes I feel filled with joy when playing, singing, dancing or fighting with others and I can only see myself by looking at others. At other times I can't stand to be with anyone or relate at all; I am only happy being completely with myself. When I am with people, I judge that I am escaping my aloneness and when I am with myself, I judge that I am avoiding love.
Isn't it possible to be on both paths, alternating between them? How can I tell when I am using one to escape the other?
Question 2 from Sw Deva Ashoka
Beloved master, can someone who is not open wake up?
Question 3
Beloved master, let us see you get out of this one, you tricky rascal! You tell us often that sannyas does not mean renouncing the world, but the ego. Yet when we decide to stay with you we end up renouncing our homes, jobs, money and possessions; our private space, sometimes our family and friends too. We don't make any formal renunciation, but it happens anyway, and we flourish and are perfectly happy. You are so devious, it is beautiful!
Question 4 from Satyam
Beloved master, I have many friends, but the question: Who is a real friend? Always arises in my mind. Will you say something about it?
Question 5
Beloved master, why are thousands of people from all over the world coming to you?
