Question 1
Beloved Osho, Richard Wilhelm, the man who translated the I Ching from Chinese to German, came back to Vienna very disturbed after spending thirty years in China. He consulted his friend, Carl Gustav Jung. Jung's diagnosis was that Wilhelm was in a dangerous crisis. He had put aside the German culture and adopted the Chinese one, the whole package -- religion, education and whatsoever.
Jung said, "The part you sacrificed comes back as the sacrificer, the repressed part comes back as the repressor."
And Wilhelm loved the Chinese culture, he even worshipped it, but his mind was no help at all. He died from this crisis.
Nietzsche, the man who wrote "Out of chaos it will shine forth -- the dancing morning star", was not a lucky man either. He freaked out.
Nijinsky used his body beyond the boundaries, and freaked out as well.
It seems that mind alone or body alone can't take you anywhere.
Osho, is the mystical experience the wings that will take mind, body and heart to a non-sleeping condition? Are you the dancing morning star that came out from the East to put fire to the world -- or better, to the rebels of the world?
Question 2 from Premda
Beloved Osho, as far as I can remember, I had the feeling that there was somebody somewhere alive on this planet that I had to meet, who was a sage, an alchemist, a master. This was long before I knew what a master really meant. I thought this was just a fantasy, because as a child I loved reading stories about people like Merlin the magician and other alchemists. This feeling was so strong that it kept me from committing myself to anything -- marriage, business, politics, countries.
Could this feeling be a vague remembrance of having been with a master like you and missing the opportunity in some past life? If so, why was there such a strong feeling that I had to find him in this lifetime?
I am asking this, because maybe somebody else may have the same feeling, and if they knew this is possible, they would not lose as much time as I did in irrelevant things.
Question 3 from Sw Milarepa
Beloved Osho, when I become enlightened, who will be the first to know?
