shorttitle REVOL10
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
The revolution feels to be hot, heady and sharp. Whereas love feels to be soft, smooth and delicate. How do love and revolution go together?
Question 2
What about food? Is it not absolutely essential to be a vegetarian for spiritual growth?
Question 3 from Elsie Albright
You have said many times that at first great effort is needed, but there comes a point where effort ceases. Then one reaches the limit of one's efforts; further pushing to open the door is futile. Then one day, one steps back and the door opens of its own accord.
After a lifetime of searching for enlightenment, I have come to the point where I have lost interest in life, in knowledge, in meditation, in attainment. Nothing seems to matter any more. Yet I do not feel I have come to that final peak of effort where now the obverse of effort is happening -- the yin complementing the yang.
Are there not many minor peaks and valleys in which the energy reverses itself and we rest without effort, before the final cessation of effort? How does one recognize the final peak?
Question 4
What is the difference between liking and loving, to like and to love? And also, what is the between ordinary love and spiritual love?
Question 5
Why do you tell jokes? And why don't you laugh at your own jokes?
Question 6
Osho, I see that the people here around you are very much excited about something. But I don't understand what exactly it is.
