synopsis
Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Last night you said that a krishna, a christ, a buddha, they are the climax of human possibility and growth, and then you said that yogic and tantric psychology put no ideal before man and that to have an ideal is a mistake according to tantra. In this reference please explain what is the difference between an inspiration and an ideal. What is the significance of inspiration in a seeker's life? Please tell whether even being inspired by a great man is a mistake on the path of a meditator.
Question 2
You spoke of Western psychology being rooted in Freudian concepts of pathology and of Eastern psychology using the supernormal as the base from which to evaluate a man. But as I look around me in the modern world, I see that most people fit Freud's categories of pathology. One in a million fits the category of supernormal and a small number actually fit the societal ideal of normal. Why is there so much pathology nowadays and what would you consider to be the definition of normal?
Question 3
Daily in each of your talks, you speak of awareness -- total awareness, uninterrupted awareness, etcetera. You also said that it cannot be achieved by the mind, by repeating a thought -- that it is to be felt. But how can one feel unless one achieves it? What is that feeling which is the precursor of achievement? How to imagine or project that which has not yet happened? Does that too happen by excluding mind? What is the whole process? How can it be made feasible?"
