LIVE AND LOVE with Awareness


How to deal with Fear …

https://oshoboeken-besproken.nl/engelse-osho-boeken-5/engelse-osho-boeken-3/courage/

The book begins with an in-depth exploration of the meaning of courage and how it is expressed in the everyday life of the individual. Unlike books that focus on heroic acts of courage in exceptional circumstances, the focus here is on developing the inner courage that enables us to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears-in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here.

By Consciousness, Energy flows Upwards

EXISTENCE IS YOURS AS ANYBODY ELSE’S

One lighted candle can make millions of candles lighted

“And one awakened person can awaken the whole world. One lighted candle can make millions of candles lighted without losing its light.” OSHO

Discovering your Individuality

The word Individuality refers to ‘being UNDIVIDED’. You are ONE and in this sense you are unique. There is just one such a human being as you are. And there will never be one like you.

The story of the picture contains the situation of a young lion, raised amongst the sheep. An old lion drags him to a well and seeing its image, for the first time he utters a Lion’s roar. That’s the function of the Master: bringing you to your Individuality.

Keep the Love Stream Flowing

“Love means the opposite of fear; the more you love, the less fear is present. By love you are full of trust to move into the unknown, to Iive an adventurous life. So….when fear is overwhelming you, put your energy into love.
Love people, but not only them, you can love flowers, rocks, birds, stars, the moon. The object his not important, essential is the love stream that flows out of you.”

The Creation of Man/Woman Interpreted

Creation according to the Biblical story has happened this way. “…Then on the sixth day he created man. And in the last moment of the sixth day he created woman. Now: this is very symbolic: woman is the last creation, even man is not the last. And the allegory is still more beautiful because it says that he created woman out of man. This means woman is a refinement of man, a more purified form.

Woman is Refinement, a more purified form

“And the Christian allegory says that God created man first. Man is the highest in the animal kingdom, but as far as humanity concerns, the woman is higher. Christian theologians have interpreted it in an absolute wrong way – they have interpreted it in a male chauvinist way. They think man is more important, so God created man first. Then animals must be even more important.

Rebels Leven

The Logic is False

They think man is the real thing, woman is just an appendix. At the last moment, God felt that something was missing so he took one bone out of man and created the woman. Woman is not be thought very significant, just a help-mate, just so that man feels good, otherwise he will be alone. The story is analysed in such a way that it seems that the woman is less important than man – just a toy for man to play with, otherwise he will be alone. God loved man so much that he thought he will be sad and lonely. No this is not true.

FOLLOW YOUR NATURE

Happiness arises only from the Inside

Rebels Leven

Mostly we think that happiness arises when we reached something or we received something we wished for during a long time. That is not true. In that situation happiness has its cause from something outside. So there will be a very temporary happiness. The real happiness that has a more permanent character, arises from inside. From this experience the attitude of happiness arises.

LOVE and DISTANCE

It looks contradictory….because: how can you share love if you are not together? But: there is lots of suffering in love because people cannot realise their freedom in a connection or relationship. Feeling dependent of someone else can destroy much love in you.

Having distance to each other, one can see each other more purely. A new longing can arise when one has a certain distance towards each other. Coming together again, will be full of longing and dancingly.

IN DEEP LOVE THE EGO DISAPPEARS

Lovers merge and melt in each other

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They are in each other all along

YOU BELONG TO ETERNITY

“You exist in time, but you belong to eternity. You are a penetration of eternity into the world of time. You are deathless, living in a body of death. Your consciousness knows no death, no birth. It is only your body that is born and dies. But you are not aware of your consciousness; you are not conscious of your consciousness.

And that is the whole art of meditation: becoming conscious of consciousness itself.” Osho

You Belong to Eternity

“Try to live a life with as little complexity and less problems as possible — and it is in your hands.” Osho

“Life is to live, not to discuss. 
Live as deeply and intensely as possible.” Osho 

Osho on Zen and sex:
“You are asking, ‘Apparently sex was used by some Zen masters – for example, Ikkyu – as a way to transform energy. However, in no translation to date does evidence of this appear.’
That does not mean that sex was a taboo. It was so natural that there was no need to discuss it. You don’t discuss urination. That does not mean you have stopped urinating. You start discussing things only when you start going against nature. If you are natural, there is nothing to discuss. 
Life is to live, not to discuss.” 

If you are natural, there is nothing to discuss
