Authors: Osho Quotes, Famous Osho Quotes, Sayings of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
Become loving. When you are in the embrace,
become the embrace. Become the kiss.
Forget yourself so totally that you can say,
'I am no more. Only love exists.'
Then the heart is not beating, but love is beating.
Then the blood is not circulating, but love is circulating.
Then eyes are not seeing, love is seeing.
Then hands are not moving to touch, love is moving to touch.
Become love and enter everlasting life.
Osho

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers - for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.
Osho

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.
Osho

I don't want anybody to stand between the individual and existence. No prayer, no priest -- you alone are enough to face the sunrise, you don't need somebody to interpret for you what a beautiful sunrise it is... And this is my attitude: you are here, every individual is here, the whole existence is available. All that you need is just to be silent and listen to existence. There is no need of any religion, there is no need of any God, there is no need of any priesthood, there is no need of any organization. I trust in the individual categorically. Nobody up to now has trusted in the individual in such a way.
Osho

I am not a logician. I am an existentialist. I believe in this meaningless, beautiful chaos of existence, and I am ready to go with it wherever it leads.
Osho

I am here to seduce you into a love of life; to help you to become a little more poetic; to help you die to the mundane and to the ordinary so that the extraordinary explodes in your life.
Osho

The only way to know something absolutely is to experience it for yourself; anything less is theory, speculation, and belief.
Osho

I say unto you that suffering is not holding you, you are holding suffering.
Osho

Logic ridicules love, and love smiles knowingly at the whole foolishness of logic.
Osho

When sadness comes, just sit by the side and look at it and say, 'I am the watcher, I am not sadness,' and see the difference. Immediately you have cut the very root of sadness. It is no more nourished. It will die of starvation. We feed these emotions by being identified with them
Osho

Laughter relaxes. And relaxation is spiritual.
Osho

I am not a philosopher who is trying to make a system of thought. I am a mystic who is trying to convey the mysteries that have become available to me. I will confuse you.
Osho

Whenever I meet prostitutes, they never speak of sex. They inquire about the soul, and about God. I also meet many ascetics and monks, and whenever we are alone they ask about nothing but sex. I was surprised to learn that ascetics, who are always preaching against sex, seem to be captivated by it. They are curious about it and disturbed by it; they have this mental complex about it, yet they sermonize about religion and about the animal instincts in man. And sex is so natural.
Osho

If there is pain, use it as an awareness, as meditation, as a sharpening of the soul. And when pleasure is there, use it as a droning, as a forgetfulness. Both are ways to reach God. One is to remember yourself totally, and one is to forget yourself totally.
Osho

I have never been a serious person.... I am not serious at all because existence is not serious. It is so playful, so full of song and so full of music and so full of subtle laughter. It has no purpose; it is not business-like. It is pure joy, sheer dance, out of overflowing energy.
Osho

Nobody can teach you love. Love you have to find yourself, within your being, by raising your consciousness to higher levels.
Osho

Ecstasy is our very nature, not to be ecstatic is simply unnecessary. To be ecstatic is natural, spontaneous. It needs no effort to be ecstatic, it needs great effort to be miserable.
Osho

One has to reach to the absolute state of awareness: that is Zen.
Osho

Any mundane activity can become meditative. Digging a hole in the garden, planting new roses in the garden – you can do it with such tremendous love and compassion, you can do it with the hands of a buddha.
Osho

It was good of Friedrich Nietzsche to declare God dead – I declare that he has never been born. It is a created fiction, an invention, not a discovery. Do you understand the difference between invention and discovery? A discovery is about truth, an invention is manufactured by you. It is man-manufactured fiction.
Osho

Anybody who gives you a belief system is your enemy, because the belief system becomes the barrier for your eyes, you cannot see the truth.
Osho

Just a few days ago a man came to see me and he said, "I am a humble man. I am just like the dust on your feet. I have been trying for almost twenty years to achieve higher consciousness, but I have been a failure. Why can't I attain?" And on and on he went. Every sentence started with I. If the grammar allowed, every sentence would have ended with I. And if everything was allowed, every sentence would have consisted only of I's. "I etcetera, I etcetera, I etcetera," it went on and on. You are filled too much. There is no room, no space for God to enter in you. You are too crowded. A thousand I's milling inside – they don't leave any space for anything to enter in you.
Osho

It is not decided by votes what is true; otherwise we could never come to any truth, ever.
Osho

Whenever I meet prostitutes, they never speak of sex. They inquire about the soul, and about God. I also meet many ascetics and monks, and whenever we are alone they ask about nothing but sex.
Osho

They [cunning priests, politicians who want to dominate in name of love] are all against love, because love is unable to be controlled by them. A man of love acts out of his own heart, not according to any moral code. A man of love will not join the army because it is his responsibility to fight for his nation. A man of love will say there are no nations, and there is no question of any fight.
Osho

Be realistic: Plan for a miracle.
Osho

Be – don't try to become.
Osho

The more man becomes aware of the mysterious side of life, the less he is political; the less he is a Hindu, a Mohammedan, a Christian; the less is the possibility for his being a fanatic. A man in tune with the mysterious is humble, loving, caring, accepting the uniqueness of everybody. He is rejoicing in the freedom of each individual, because only with freedom can this garden of humanity be a rich place.
Osho

My whole teaching consists of two words, meditation and love. Meditate so that you can feel immense silence, and love so that your life can become a song, a dance, a celebration. You will have to move between the two, and if you can move easily, if you can move without any effort, you have learned the greatest thing in life.
Osho

You say that in heaven there is eternal beauty. The eternal beauty is here and now, not in heaven.
Osho

Remain in wonder if you want mysteries to open up for you. Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning. Questioners sooner or later end up in a library. They end up with scriptures, because scriptures are full of answers. And answers are dangerous, they kill your wonder.
Osho

Nature has come to a point where now, unless you take individual responsibility, you cannot grow.
Osho

Don't say this is good and that is bad. Drop all discrimination. Accept everything as it is.
Osho

Liberation cannot be desired because desire is the bondage. When you are desireless, you are liberated.
Osho

When you are no more, only then for the first time will you be.
Osho

Look for the mysterious in life. Wherever you look – in the white clouds, in the stars in the night, in the flowers, in a flowing river – wherever you look, look for the mystery. And whenever you find that a mystery is there, meditate on it. Meditation means: dissolve yourself before that mystery, annihilate yourself before that mystery, disperse yourself before that mystery. Be no more, and let the mystery be so total that you are absorbed in it. And suddenly a new door opens, a new perception is achieved.
Osho

Find moments when you are not, and those will be the moments when you will be for the first time...really. So I am the white cloud, and the whole effort is to make you also white clouds drifting in the sky. Nowhere to go, coming from nowhere, just being there this very moment – perfect. I don't teach you any ideals, I don't teach you any oughts. I don't say to you be this, become that. My whole teaching is simply this: Whatsoever you are, accept it so totally that nothing is left to be achieved, and you will become a white cloud.
Osho

Tao mystics never talk about God, reincarnation, heaven, hell. No, they don't talk about these things. These are all creations of human mind: explanations for something which can never be explained, explanations for the mystery. In fact, all explanations are against God because explanation de-mystifies existence. Existence is a mystery, and one should accept it as a mystery and not pretend to have any explanation. No, explanation is not needed – only exclamation, a wondering heart, awakened, surprised, feeling the mystery of life each moment. Then, and only then, you know what truth is. And truth liberates.
Osho

If you really want to know who I am, you have to be as absolutely empty as I am. Then two mirrors will be facing each other, and only emptiness will be mirrored. Infinite emptiness will be mirrored: two mirrors facing each other. But if you have some idea, then you will see your own idea in me.
Osho

The stronger a person's "I" is, the smaller his capacity to become one with anybody. The "I" is a wall in between; it proclaims itself. Its proclaimation is : "You are you and I am I. There is a distance between the two." Then no matter how much "I" love you, "I" may embrace you to my bosom, still we are two. No matter how closely we meet, still there is a gap in between - I am me and you are you. That is why even the most intimate experiences fail to bring people close. Bodies sit close to each other but the persons remain far away. As long as there is the "I" inside the sense of "the other" cannot be destroyed.
Sartre has made a wonderful statement: "The other is hell." But he didn't explain why the other is "the other." The other is "the other" because I am "I". And as long as I am "I," the world around is "the other" - separate and apart. And as long as there is separateness there can be no experience of love.
Osho

The world is not a problem; the problem is your awareness.
Osho

In sex there may be relaxation. In sex there may be physiological health and hygiene. But there is no growth. You remain animal. With love you become human. With love you become upright. With love you stand erect on earth. With sex you are again animal, you are horizontal on the earth, just moving like other animals, crawling. With love you are erect, vertical.
Osho
