Bliss and Prayer ~ Osho

Bliss and Prayer ~ Osho

~ By Deepak Jain Bliss and prayer are not separate, just two aspects of the same experience.

Your Smiles and Tears ~ Osho

Your Smiles and Tears ~ Osho

~   By Deepak Jain   The real opposite of your smiles are not tears, but smiles which are painted, smiles which don’t go any deeper than the lips, which are nothing but exercises of the lips. No heart collaborates with them, no feeling stands behind them. There is nobody behind the smile, the smile […]

Let Your Thoughts Lead To Wisdom ~

Let Your Thoughts Lead To Wisdom ~

~   Thoughts are your guests. They have made a lodging house of your mind. It is wrong to think of them as yours; and this same mistake comes in the way of getting rid of them. If you identify as yours, you stand in the way of their exit. And the thoughts which are […]

Life is a Quest ~ Osho

Life is a Quest ~ Osho

~   Posted By Deepak Jain   Life is a quest not a question, a mystery not a problem, and the difference is vast. The problem has to be solved, can be solved, must be solved, but the mystery is insoluble; it has to be lived, experienced. The question has to be solved so that […]

It Happens ~  Happiness

It Happens ~ Happiness

~   By Deepak Jain I understand. It happens; at a certain stage it happens. In fact, there are no outside causes for happiness or unhappiness; they are just excuses. By and by, one comes to realize that it is something inside you that goes on changing, and that it has nothing to do with […]

A Word on Friendship & Friendliness ~

A Word on Friendship & Friendliness ~

~ By Deepak Jain The very word friendship is not of the heights – the word friendliness rises to the moon, to the sun – because the word friendship is just of the mind. It is confining; you can be in friendship with only a few people. But friendliness is vast; you can be friendly […]

Inner and Outer Beauty ~

Inner and Outer Beauty ~

Retrospective Awareness ~ Osho

Identification is Ignorance ~ Osho

Identification is Ignorance ~ Osho

Consciousness becomes identified because through identification the world is and through the world you can regain yourself.

Deva Means Divine ~

Deva Means Divine ~

Posted By Deepak Jain Deva means divine, gatya means movement – divine movement. Life is a movement, and misery arises because we don’t go with the movement.

Osho’s Wisdom ~
