“Be — don't try to become”
Osho

Osho
“Nobody can say anything about you. Whatsoever people say is about themselves. But you become very shaky, because you are still clinging to a false center. That false center depends on others, so you are always looking to what people are saying about you. And you are always following other people, you are always trying to satisfy them. You are always trying to be respectable, you are always trying to decorate your ego. This is suicidal. Rather than being disturbed by what others say, you should start looking inside yourself…

Whenever you are self-conscious you are simply showing that you are not conscious of the self at all. You don’t know who you are. If you had known, then there would have been no problem— then you are not seeking opinions. Then you are not worried what others say about you— it is irrelevant!

When you are self-conscious you are in trouble. When you are self-conscious you are really showing symptoms that you don’t know who you are. Your very self-consciousness indicates that you have not come home yet.”
Osho

Osho
“The Truth Is That Existence Wants Your Life To Become A Festival Because When You Are Unhappy, You Also Throw Unhappiness All Around.”
Osho

Osho
“The Real Self is dangerous: dangerous to the established church, dangerous to the state, dangerous to the crowd, dangerous to tradition, because once a man knows his real self, he becomes an individual.”
Osho

Osho
“Mind: A beautiful servant, a dangerous master.”
Osho

Osho
“No relationship can truly grow if you go on holding back. If you remain clever and go on safeguarding and protecting yourself, only personalities meet, and the essential centers remain alone. Then only your mask is related, not you. Whenever such a thing happens, there are four persons in the relationship, not two. Two false persons go on meeting, and the two real persons remain worlds apart.”
Osho

Osho
“You can love as many people as you want – that does not mean one day you will go bankrupt, and you will have to declare, ‘Now I have no love.’ You cannot go bankrupt as far as love is concerned.”
Osho

Osho
“You need not search for uniqueness, you are unique already. There is no way to make a thing more unique. The words “more unique” are absurd. It is just like the word “circle.” Circles exist; there is no such thing as “more circular.” That is absurd. A circle is always perfect, “more” is not needed.”
Osho

Osho
“People sometimes ask me , what religion are you ? I always answer by saying, ''Iam a little part of all religions and and a big part of no religion.”
Osho

Mikhail Naimy
“All is a riddle to the man who trails a shadow. For that man walks in borrowed light, therefore he stumbles on his shadow.”
Mikhail Naimy, The Book of Mirdad: The Strange Story of a Monastery Which Was Once Called the Ark

Osho
“When somebody on the outside fits with your inner image, you fall in love -- that is the meaning of love.”
Osho

Osho
“You may have read or heard about the so-called positive thinkers of the West. They say
just the opposite -- they don't know what they are saying. They say, "When you breathe
out, throw out all your misery and negativity; and when you breathe in, breathe in joy,
positivity, happiness, cheerfulness."
Atisha's method is just the opposite: when you breathe in, breathe in all the misery and
suffering of all the beings of the world -- past, present and future. And when you breathe
out, breathe out all the joy that you have, all the blissfulness that you have, all the
benediction that you have. Breathe out, pour yourself into existence. This is the method
of compassion: drink in all the suffering and pour out all the blessings.
And you will be surprised if you do it. The moment you take all the sufferings of the
world inside you, they are no longer sufferings. The heart immediately transforms the
energy. The heart is a transforming force: drink in misery, and it is transformed into
blissfulness... then pour it out.
Once you have learned that your heart can do this magic, this miracle, you would like to
do it again and again. Try it. It is one of the most practical methods -- simple, and it
brings immediate results. Do it today, and see.
That is one of the approaches of Buddha and all his disciples. Atisha is one of his
disciples, in the same tradition, in the same line. Buddha says again and again to his
disciples, "IHI PASSIKO: come and see!" They are very scientific people. Buddhism is
the most scientific religion on the earth; hence, Buddhism is gaining more and more
ground in the world every day. As the world becomes more intelligent, Buddha will
become more and more important. It is bound to be so. As more and more people come to
know about science, Buddha will have great appeal, because he will convince the
scientific mind -- because he says, "Whatsoever I am saying can be practiced." And I
don't say to you, "Believe it," I say, "Experiment with it, experience it, and only then if
you feel it yourself, trust it. Otherwise there is no need to believe.”
Osho, The Book of Wisdom

Osho
“If one is not a meditator, howsoever good one is it is all useless.”
Osho, Books I Have Loved

“You are not always right. It’s not always about being right. The best thing you can offer others is understanding. Being an active listener is about more than just listening, it is about reciprocating and being receptive to somebody else. Everybody has woes. Nobody is safe from pain. However, we all suffer in different ways. So learn to adapt to each person, know your audience and reserve yourself for people who have earned the depths of you”
Mohadesa Najumi

“Give someone everything you can think of, the wings to fly and the roots to stay. If they chose none of these hold the door open for them with a smile”
Mohadesa Najumi

Osho
“الكون أحجية لا حل لها ، لا يستطيع أحد ايجاد حل لها. لكن كلما انغمست في التأمل و أصبحت صامتا ً و أصبحت أكثر صمتا ً ستجد الطريقة التي توصلك إلى حلها.”
Osho, ألف باء التنوير: القاموس الروحي لكل الأزمان

“Life is a useless passion, an exciting journey of a mammal in survival mode. Each day is a miracle, a blessing unexplored and the more you immerse yourself in light, the less you will feel the darkness. There is more to life than nothingness. And cynicism. And nihilism. And selfishness. And glorious isolation. Be selfish with yourself, but live your life through your immortal acts, acts that engrain your legacy onto humanity. Transcend your fears and follow yourself into the void instead of letting yourself get eaten up by entropy and decay. Freedom is being yourself without permission. Be soft and leave a lasting impression on everybody you meet”
Mohadesa Najumi

“Study yourself. Become your own mentor and best friend. When you are suffering stay at the bottom until you find out who you are. Let the storms come and pass. How you walk through the fire says a lot about you. Nobody likes a victimhood mentality and what happened to you is not important. It is about how you use your chaos that matters. The dawn will come”
Mohadesa Najumi

“Your fear of becoming a cliche is what turns you into one. If you remove the fear, we are all really walking contradictions, hypocrites and paradoxical cliches”
Mohadesa Najumi

Osho
“الغضب هو مجرّد تقيّؤ عقلي.”
Osho, ألف باء التنوير: القاموس الروحي لكل الأزمان

Osho
“The day is not only God's, the night is his also.”
Osho, Emotions

“The meaning of Sannyas is not well defined. Its meaning is not static; it is redefined after short periods of time in the life of a Sannyasi.”
Harshit Walia

“All my life I have heard the term happiness thrown around like a buzzword as if it is something to be gained. As I have previously expressed, I do not view happiness as a tangible thing. To me happinesss is the elimination of accumulated darkness. Self-sustaining happiness comes from contentment of acceptance, compassion and sympathetic joy, qualities which cannot be developed like a muscle, but rather they must be actualized by the removal of fetters in the mind”
Mohadesa Najumi

“Our society shuns people for being a bright light in the world. Sometimes if you are too futuristic people do not like how revolutionary you are”
Mohadesa Najumi

“I take it as a compliment when somebody calls me crazy. I would be offended if I was one of the sheeple, one of the sleepwalkers in the matrix or part of the collective hallucination we call 'normal”
Mohadesa Najumi

“Have you ever been totally happy or at peace and then begun to worry for no apparent reason? We live in a constant battle of conflict and comparison. If you stop asserting the need to label or to judge, you'll learn acceptance and understanding which is the basis of inner-balance”
Mohadesa Najumi
