Reader of the questions: Sw Anand Vimal.
Question 1 from David
Beloved Osho, for quite some time now I have been looking into why and how I protect myself, and who I'm protecting myself from. I find it expresses itself through arrogance, and the safety of only wanting to stay on the side of the giver. I feel like a rocket which is all prepared to be launched: all the systems have been cleared but one lock is still on -- the lock of protection.
Osho, would you show me the key to unlock protection -- or is there no lock?
Question 2 from Anand Premartha
Beloved Osho, every day I come out of your discourse, having been sitting with you, listening to your voice and dancing to your music. Coming out of the gate the world looks so fresh, the green so deep and shiny, the play of the sun with the shadow so rich, and the people soft and open. Beloved master, what's the magic you use in cleaning my eyes? Is it this or is nature rejoicing too in the presence of such a beautiful master and showing its most celebrative and beautiful side to us? Is this your buddhafield flowing through everybody and everything present here?
Question 3 from Ma Prem Kaveesha
Edited excerpt: 2min 47sec, a part of question 3 **
Beloved Osho, many times in my meditation I asked you not to show me directly the tremendous tragedy that is happening on earth today, as I know I could never tolerate such suffering. Yet I'm sensing this all the time, even with my buffers. I know you are the light for this whole planet, and knowing this carries such a responsibility. I would be so grateful to hear you speak to me on helping, knowing I can't help, and the angst of feeling helpless -- and also of relaxing when feeling such a state of urgency.
Question 4 from Ma Prem Turiya
Beloved Osho, I've been with you for twelve years, listening to you answering thousands of questions. The questions all sound very similar, yet your answers with each of them are so new, so fresh, so crystal clear. Even though you have said everything that is possible to be expressed through words, I hear everything as if it is for the first time, as if I have never heard it ever before. Even though words repeat, it never feels like repetition. It is like floating in a cool, clear, mountain lake, that I come out of totally fresh, clean and clear. Osho, you are such a wonderful mystery to me, always catching me by surprise and in awe and wonder.
