synopsis
Reader of the questions: Ma Prem Maneesha.
Question 1
Beloved Osho, every time you talk about transforming passion into compassion, something in my heart gets triggered; but still, I do not understand what it means.
Could you explain it to me again?
Question 2
Beloved Osho, I have been feeling more and more ashamed of being an American after seeing the disgraceful way you were treated there.
And it seems the symbiotic economic relationships between the USA and other governments make it very difficult even for other nations to act independently towards you.
It has become a conflict for me to even participate in the economy of the U.S. and enjoy its benefits, knowing that the taxes I pay help to keep it in the business of violating human rights all over the world.
Can you comment on whether it is even possible to "render unto caesar what is caesar's" and still maintain some integrity and self respect? I feel like such a hypocrite going about my business as usual, but if I open my mouth there is usually trouble.
Question 3
Beloved Osho, there seem to be connected stages through which man has passed -- from tribe to family to commune, from magico-religions to pseudo-religions to the religionless religion, and from nomadic hunter-gatherer to the agriculturalist, and now to the existential gypsy.
Are these trends really connected?
Question 4 from Premda
Beloved Osho, all of us have missed in past lives; otherwise we wouldn't be having the wonderful experience of sitting at your feet instead of being dissolved into the whole forever.
The other night you said that my constant longing is a proof that I am carrying a seed from my past life, and that I shouldn't miss this life but let the seed sprout and die consciously so that I can work on in the next life -- even without a master. You have already excluded Maneesha and Milarepa from disappearing. Am I also doomed to go round again?
