Question 1 from Geeta
Beloved Osho, a few months ago my friend and I were visiting his dying father. Lots of people were around. His body was about finished. To most people he was indifferent, but when everyone left he suddenly opened his eyes and told us, "I feel like I have two bodies; one body is sick and the other is completely healthy." We told him, "That's right! The healthy body is the real you, so stay with that one." He said, "Okay," and closed his eyes. As we sat with him, the sick energy around the hospital bed changed. We couldn't believe this new energy; it was as if we were in darshan with you... such beautiful silence. I felt a bit strange saying these words to someone who was really experiencing this. Whatever I said wasn't really my experience, just something I'd thought about. After we left he improved for a while, went home and died peacefully in his bed. Beloved Osho, even though I've been with you for ten years, I felt so ignorant in front of this man who was ready to let go of everything with such trust and clarity and peace.
Question 2 from Kaveesha
Beloved Osho, when you said that now is the time to drop the duality between me and you, you gave me what I've yearned for from the moment I saw you. I want to write this so that it is more real, so that I can know more and more that this is my truth. Beloved Osho, I am not separate from you. There is no you -- there is no me. This feels so awesome to say -- even more awesome to live. Why? How to ever drop over my head?
Question 3 from Deva Surabhi
Beloved Osho, I feel as if I am almost letting go, but a part inside me, small but very persistent, is holding on tight. It creates a feeling of anxiety, a cloud of worry, a sense of incompletion. Often, with you, the beauty of a single moment is so intense that it turns into an ache and a longing. Is it because my "yes" is not total yet? And why does this create a sort of existential worry? Nobody else seems worried.
Question 4 from Maitri
Beloved Osho, the mind often tells me to beware of my greatest fear: that any wrong move could result in a fall and lead me away from your love. And yet, Osho, I feel now as never before that you are the breath flowing through me, the heart beating within, that you are one with me when I rest behind my eyes, that you are in the open sky between my breaths, that you live within every fiber of my being -- absolutely inseparable and present. O beloved one, I long to finally relax and never worry about being separate from you. Why do I still believe my mind and worry so much? Or is it possible that what I am experiencing is just an illusion? With tears of gratitude, so much more than I can contain, I kiss this earth that gives you to us.
