Reader of the questions: n/a; questions are being read by Osho himself.
Question 1
Osho, you tell me to float, but my body is so heavy with a dead-weight mind that I feel I will drown if I float. So I keep swimming in panic.
Question 2
This morning you spoke of the need to be responsible, to not lean on others, to be alone. I see I have been taking sannyas as an excuse to avoid these things -- asking you all the time what to do, calling on your presence when I am sad and lonely, imagining you are with me, filling all the emptiness. I feel irresponsible and confused again about what sannyas is.
Question 3
Osho, what is a problem?
Question 4
You say, "Do not make the same mistake twice." How can I keep from doing that unless I bring the mind in -- to evaluate, compare, and judge? And then I have to say no.
Question 5
Dear Osho, can't you take anything seriously?
Question 6
If Mulla nasrudin came to the ashram, would you put him in one of the groups?
Or would you tell him to run a group of his own?
If so, what kind of group would it be?
Question 7
Beloved Osho, thy divine music touched a deeper core in my being. When I came for the first time I was fully prepared for sannyas. Whether my sannyas was your benediction or my satyagraha is not clear to me.
You say, "Come, follow me," but how to follow you, because I do not know you?
Sometimes your fragrance I feel and sometimes it is lost.
Question 8 from Ma Anand Urmila
Osho, five months of drinking from the source made me feel more thirsty, not less. There must be something strange about your water.
In the meditation this sentence came to me:
A small sweet-water lake,
Hidden in the black forest,
Is the source of the ocean.
Osho, you are sweet and salty,
And in the moment very salty.
I feel sad because of leaving.
I want to come back to this source,
Drinking until I am so full
That I will fall into the source.
