synopsis
Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, I love hearing the stories of the old masters and their disciples. It is so beautiful to feel the essence of those small oases of consciousness -- which centuries of religion have since covered in the dust of dogma and deceit. But still, as I look at us sitting here, feeling the joy, the silence, the tears, the laughter, I suspect there is something present that no master may ever have evoked before. Is it, perhaps, a sense of loving tenderness, a juiciness in those around you -- something that could only have emerged had feminine energy been an intrinsic part of those caravanserais of so long ago?
Osho, isn't this one of your greatest contributions to spirituality?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, one of the greatest expressions of the master lies in his art of giving. In fact he himself, just by being, is a constant givingness.
It seems to me that part -- or perhaps all -- of the art of being a disciple, is learning the art of receiving... To receive attention from the master not as fodder for the ego but as a nourishment for something more essential... To see that when you think you are not being given to, it is your inability to receive. It implies the ability to receive direction -- when one is going off track -- with a healthy sense of humbleness but not with a crippling lack of self-worth... To be able to receive not always what one might have wanted, but what one needs.
Osho, could you please speak about the art of receiving on the part of the disciple in the master/disciple relationship?
Question 3
Beloved Osho, when I wake up from the relaxation sessions and open my eyes, for a few moments it feels like coming into this world for the first time... Like a new-born child opening his eyes to the world. Everything looks totally new. Even a fly on the ceiling I look at in amazement as it is part of the whole.
Is this what you see all the time in everything and everyone?
Question 4
Beloved Osho, our questions seem to function as gravitation, trying to keep you with us, while everything in you is being pulled up into the sky and away from us by the law of grace.
Whenever we run short of questions, I panic, almost seeing you floating off on the end of a balloon, and I want to call out, "Osho! Please wait! We've found another question!"
