Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Arising out of one of your answers the day before yesterday, I felt you didn't give sufficient value to Western man for the use of the dream as one of the means to consciousness. I'm thinking particularly of Jung's techniques in his psychology of self realization.
Question 2
You said that imitation of any kind, even imitation of a buddha, is alien to pure consciousness. But we see that all our cultural life is nothing but imitation. In that case, is culture itself alien to religion?
Question 3
You said that to be impressed by someone is to become impure and unnatural. But without being impressed by your person quality and words, how can a seeker become your disciple?
Question 4
You say to do that which fits your own nature. But I have difficulty knowing whether what I do is my nature or my ego. How does one distinguish the voice of one's nature from the many voices of the ego?
Question 5
You said there is no need to take shortcuts. Are not your meditations shortcuts? -- because you said earlier that your meditations are for taking an immediate jump.
