Reader of the questions: Sw Anand Vimal.
Question 1 from Waduda
Beloved Osho, why, when truth and lies meet, does trouble arise?
Question 2 from Kavisho
Beloved Osho, being here with you... thirsting and drinking and dancing... waiting... feeling... being... I lose the distance, the bridge, and it becomes almost an effort to come back to the daily flow of life.... Yet it all happens easily. And Osho, even the gratefulness melts in the soft flow of silence. It feels so new, so unspoken... so good.... Is this the fragrance of what you call an open secret?
Question 3 from Govindo
Edited excerpt: 25min 9sec, question 3 **
Beloved Osho, you said a few days ago that the really innovative man comes two hundred years ahead of his time. You also said that time is elastic. Haven't you chosen to come precisely now, before these chaotic times the world is facing, so men will be more receptive to a radical change? And is the ever-faster-growing communication technology not making in this respect the world smaller for your message to spread? Will it really take two hundred years for mankind to open up to your vision?
Question 4 from Prashantam
Beloved Osho, inside of me there is such tension that it is killing my heart. I have known it for years, and always I have avoided looking into it. I feel it when I sit in front of you, and it prevents me from melting in you. In this buddhafield I use it to stay aloof and distant, arrogant and judgmental of others. The woman I love, I care not for her freedom; but only when I have power over her do I relax. In my work I seek success and praise, and forget the gratitude for the opportunity given to me.
Osho, I am afraid that one day I'll wake up just to realize that it is too late, that I have failed you, missed this unique chance you are giving to us, to me. Yes, my beloved sweet master, I have no other question -- just this tremendous need to expose myself at your feet, asking for your divine words of guidance and light. There is so much pain, Osho, and so much love, too.
