Question 1
Beloved Osho, in the Japanese language, the word for love is a picture of a person with a full stomach, kneeling, with both hands raised in offering. The picture means, "I am so full; please allow me to share, please take from me." Osho, is it possible that the languages of cultures that use symbols are more protected from depreciation in value, as happens for example in English with the word 'love'?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, hearing you talk about the difference between being a disciple and a devotee, I realized how far away I still am from devotion. My mind imagines dependency; but something else in me moves towards being dissolved and sucked into your being, in spite of all the fears. I experience those moments of disappearance -- they are tremendously relaxing, but on the other hand they are painfully short.
Can I turn into a devotee only when I reach to the center of the cyclone, or is it a condition for reaching there?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, a few years back, every night when I was going off to sleep I would go into a space that was in between sleep and wakefulness and feel like I was leaving my body. There was no effort on my part; it was happening on its own. It felt like I would always only go a little way out, and then my body would suddenly jerk -- although there was no outer or inner disturbance -- and immediately I would return to my body.
Now this space has not come up for me for a while. I'm wondering if it is that I am less relaxed. Also, what was holding me back when it was happening that did not allow me to go out further?
