shorttitle THEOLO12
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1 from Tiko
Osho, what is the difference between a master and the perfect master?
Question 2 from Sw Anand Jerry
Osho, concerning this morning's insights on science and mysticism, these words of D.H. Lawrence:
"It is easy to see why man kills the thing he loves. To know a living thing is to kill it. One should be sufficiently intelligent and interested to know a good deal about any person one comes in close contact with. About her. About him. But to try to know any living being is to suck the life out of that being. Above all things, with the woman one loves. Every sacred instinct teaches one that one must leave her unknown. You know your woman darkly, in the blood. To try to know her mentally is to kill her. Beware, o woman, of the man who wants to find out what you are. And, o man, beware a thousand times more of the woman who wants to know you, or get you, what you are. Man does so horribly want to master the secret of life and of individuality with his mind. Keep knowledge for the world of matter, force and function. It has got nothing to do with being."
And again:
"Love ought not to be perfect. It ought to have perfect moments and wildernesses of thorn bushes, which it has. A perfect relationship ought not to be possible. Every relationship should have its absolute limits, essential to the soul of each individual. A truly perfect relationship is one in which each party leaves great tracts of the other unknown."
Isn't that also a description of a poet -- a mystic? Ah, Osho, there comes a glimpse of your mysterious, mischievous smile. You never stop your loving embrace with life.
Question 3 from Nandan
Osho, don't you feel sometimes just to take a day off and rest?
Question 4 from Virendra
Osho, how can I conquer greed, anger, sex -- the three great temptations of the devil?
