"How does one seek union with God?"
"The harder you seek, the more distance you create between Him and you."
"So what does one do about the distance?"
"Understand that it isn't there."
"Does that mean that God and I are one?"
"Not one. Not two."
"How is that possible?"
"The sun and its light, the ocean and the wave, the singer and his song — not one. Not two."

Don't mix with those who have no desire for spirituality.
Don't hesitate to speak out in public what is just and right.
Never act against your conscience out of fear of authority.
Knowledge gained from the company of great souls is superior to book-knowledge.
The ornaments of the soul are justice, integrity, courage, and truth.
Bad men obey out of fear. Good men obey out of love.
Justice is to give each man his proper share.
You cannot get rid of evil simply by exposing it. If you try to be good, loving and honest, evil will disappear.
He who has no patience cannot be a man of justice.
Not all can understand that I am in all.

True freedom isn’t ‘I’m free.’ True freedom is ‘everything is free.’ Which means everyone has the freedom to be who they are. Whether they’re awake or not awake. Deluded or un-deluded. Freedom is that everything and everybody gets to be exactly as they are. Unless we’ve come to that point, unless we’ve seen that is how Reality sees things, then we’re actually withholding freedom from the world.

Relationship is needed only because you can’t be alone, because you are not yet capable of meditation. Hence, meditation is a must before you can really love. One should be capable of being alone, utterly alone, and yet tremendously blissful. Then you can love. Then your love is no more a need but a sharing, no more a necessity. You will not become dependent on the people you love. You will share, and sharing is beautiful.

Often one is more attached to the journey than to the discovery...
because the journey happens in the mind...
the discovery happens in the heart...

Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world.

The state of self-realization, as we call it, is not attaining something new or reaching some goal which is far away, but simply being that which you always are and which you always have been.

The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They think about love, and express their love in every action. They know that love is not a mere sentiment, but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe.

To find permanent joy, you must look in the right direction. You will not find it in any outside object. Every object will rise, stay, and then cease. You have to look somewhere else for permanent, eternal joy. Don't attribute joy to something else, be it a person, the sun, moon, or stars.

Stop this tendency of going to outside objects, whatever they may be. Stop your mind from going in any direction outside. Then you must return to your inner beauty. That is your own nature: bliss eternal, which you have never felt.

Remember that nothing that happens in the mind is 'you', and none of it is your business. You don't have to worry about the thoughts that rise up inside you. It is enough that you remember that the thoughts are not you.

You say, 'I want to get out of this mind trap,’
but the 'I' itself is the trap!
But for whom? Consider, reflect, observe.
It is very elusive but if you can catch him, and you can, the whole superstructure of ill-conceived notions about the Self will begin crumbling. If your Heart and mind are dedicated to Truth, all this, the realisation of Truth, will come to you!

Someone asked Osho: " If one were to make only one new year's resolution, what would you suggest?" Osho : " This and only this can be the new year's resolution: I resolve never to make any resolutions because all resolutions are restrictions for the future. All resolutions are imprisonments. You decide today for tomorrow? You have destroyed tomorrow. Allow the tomorrow to have its own being. Let it come in its own way! Let it bring its own gifts. "Resolution means you will allow only this and you will not allow that. Resolution means you would like the sun to rise in the west and not in the east. If it rises in the east, you will not open your windows; you will keep your windows open to the west. What is resolution? Resolution is struggle. Resolution is ego. Resolution is saying, "I cannot live spontaneously." And if you cannot live spontaneously, you don't live at all -- you only pretend. "So let only one resolution be there: I will never make any resolutions. Drop all resolutions! Let life be a natural spontaneity.

There’s no fear.
Fear only comes when you believe the world to be real.
When the world proves to be an illusion, where is there fear?
What in the world can upset you, if you know the world is but a dream?

We must leave the entire collection of conditioned thought behind and let ourselves be led by the inner thread of silence into the unknown, beyond where all paths end, to that place where we go innocently or not at all—not once but continually.

To all appearances he is a fool.
His steps leave no trace.
He has no power.
He achieves nothing.
He has no reputation.
Since he judges no one, no one judges him
Such is the perfect man.
His boat is empty.

In the ecstasy of devotion one may sing and one may dance, but it is mouna (silence) that bestows liberation.

Open your eyes! Know the light that shines through your eyes; shine in the Heart as the greatest of all lights, which transcends all thought.
