Question 1
Beloved Osho, you have talked much about death and dying. I understood you to have said that people are afraid of death itself because they can't really conceive that it is going to happen to them.
Am I fooling myself when I feel tremendously excited at the thought of death? It feels that -- if the event were prepared for with one having attained as much consciousness as possible, with loving friends around and an aesthetic environment -- it could be the most amazing thing going.
Question 2
Beloved Osho, Gurdjieff was accused of trying to keep his wife alive while she was dying. His disciples seem shocked and didn't understand.
In what way was he trying to help her that he was unable to do before she was dying?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, when I was a small child my mother took me with her when going shopping. Nearly every day we went to a special shop where the shopkeeper always gave me, after we purchased what we needed, a sweetie.
One day the man forgot the sweetie, and certainly I was impatiently waiting for it. He still hadn't remembered to give it to me by the time we had reached the door to leave, so I said loudly, "Well, I didn't want a sweetie today anyway!"
I have always carried this little story within me, and found myself often behaving the same way through the years. Now, as I'm able to see the mechanism of it, I also see many people behaving that way.
Osho, why are we often unable to express what we want and what we need, and why do we often choose the longer way instead of the direct?
