Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1 from Vivek
Beloved Osho, a few days ago I was feeling full of energy and a lot of love for myself.
The opportunity arose for me to let myself face my number one devil: jealousy. I went for it wholeheartedly, and the result was to send myself even higher: I felt euphoric and so grateful.
I am still left with an almost uncontainable energy which seems composed of sensuality and of lovingness.
If I go into it, I risk hurting other people; but the alternative seems a compromise. Sitting and watching it drives me bananas!
Osho, my main question is: What is it that I have learned from this experience, and how to use this so as not to be taken over again by jealousy? How to enjoy the freedom to express sensuality without compromising, getting frustrated or slipping on the banana?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, when an artist is on the stage or painting, sometimes suddenly the mind stops and there is no one on the stage or doing the painting. As you say, the creativity passes through the artist while he is a hollow bamboo.
Then a beautiful work of art is done because no one but existence has done it.
I wonder if it is like a glimpse of enlightenment. But it lasts the time of a soap bubble. Back to normal, the poor guy is back in the desert of daily life which is very mediocre, and he doesn't have the passport to reach the reality of his glimpses. The work of art stays at this height -- it is far beyond the creator -- but the poor fellow stays down there in the valley. Sometimes he can ride on another soap bubble, but he'll soon be back in the valley.
Mozart, Beethoven, Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent van Gogh, and many others, burnt themselves in this search, but it seems they didn't arrive anywhere. Is it because they didn't find the right master?
And another question arises: If existence is generous enough and has given those guys another chance, are they around now?
Osho, why doesn't the boat of creativity have enough fuel to reach the shore of enlightenment?
