Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, not infrequently, when I begin to wake in the morinig, I have such a strong sense of how arbitrary it is that I am back in my particular form. I recognize the person I slip back into: I know her mannerisms, her likes and dislikes. And it seems no one else is available to be in her body -- they are busy looking after their own -- so I slip in, and start the day.
Apparently the Australian aborigines believes that when one sleeps, one leaves the body; dreams are in fact, according to them, the adventures of their bodyless being. I wish I could maintain this sense of distance all the time. It seems curious that it happens either through absolute alertness -- witnessing -- or after coming out of deep unconsciousness.
Question 2
Beloved Osho, it seems to me that just because you give someone sannyas it does not necessarily mean that they are a disciple. Does one have to earn discipleship, or does it just happen?
Question 3 from Kirtan
Beloved Osho, why is it so difficult for me to have direct eye contact with another person?
Question 4
Beloved Osho, you spoke the other night of how much you have been misrepresented. But for every handful of scurrilous and shoddy press reports on you, isn't the love and trust of one single sannyasin of far greater significance and a far more telling confirmation of who you really are?
Question 5
Beloved Osho, I have heard you say that you -- one man -- alone are fighting against the world, or are considered a danger to the world, and so on.
I know we are all, each individual, alone. At the same time I want to call out to you, "But Osho, all of us who love you are with you" -- because in love with you, we are you.
