synopsis
Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, broadly speaking, as I understand it, there are two sets of rules: one for the outer world -- which is the man-made world concerned with earning money, rearing children, driving on a certain side of the road -- and a different set of rules for the inner world; for example, hypnosis, telepathy, mind-reading and so on, and for attaining inner growth of consciousness, leading finally to samadhi, enlightenment, nirvana.
To live here, both rules have to be followed, and so it appears to me that friction is created.
To my surprise, a Fukouku of Japan is doing what he calls "no-farming," or doing-nothing farming -- no ploughing, no weeding, no fertilization, no pesticides; and has had the highest yield in the last 25 years.
Is such a thing also possible in other areas of activity such as business, medical practice, legal practice, service, etc? Is synchronization to some extent possible?
Osho, can you please "enlighten" me?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, two sardarjis were driving along in the front seat of their car.
As they approached a corner, the one who was driving said to his friend, "Sardarji, will you look out of the window and see if the indicator, the turn signal, is working?"
He promptly leaned out of the window and looked at the indicator light and shouted back at his friend, "Yes it is -- no it's not, yes it is -- no it's not, yes it is -- no it's not."
Osho, if anybody were to ask me whether I was witnessing or not, my answer would have to be the same: yes I am, no I'm not; yes I am, no I'm not.
Is it like that all the way home?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, you had suggested to me to combine dancing and listening to music, and doing this keeps me happy. But I also have to move to the other side, of sadness.
Whenever I go to sleep in the night awareness starts happening naturally and to avoid it I turn and toss in the bed. Sleep is difficult. What to do to forget awareness in the night?
I also see that there is no harm in being awake in the night, and I sometimes enjoy it as new spaces are discovered. This awareness also keeps me silent and helps me avoid moving from happiness to sadness, and vice-versa. I prefer silence to moving from happiness to sadness because I hate sadness, even though it may be deeper.
What are your suggestions about this? Osho, please comment.
Question 4
Beloved Osho, the more I am able to absorb you, the more thirsty I become. Please talk about meditation and passion.
