OSHO: The Art of Listening

Listening is the same as hearing, isn’t it?
Osho describes how different these two really are, and how one of them leads to transformation.

“The art of listening is based on silence in the mind, so that the mind does not interfere, it simply allows whatever is coming to you. I am not saying you have to agree with it. Listening does not mean that you have to agree with it, neither does it mean that you have to disagree with it. The art of listening is just pure listening, factual, undistorted. And once you have listened then comes the point whether you agree or not, but the first thing is to listen.”

OSHO: There Is No God, but I Have Found Something…

Osho responds to the question:

If there is no God, are you an Atheist?

“There is no God, but that does not mean that I’m an atheist. Certainly I am not a theist — I am saying there is no God — but that does not mean that you jump to the opposite, the atheist. The atheist says there is no God also, but when I say there is no God, and the atheists like Charvaka, Karl Marx, Lenin, Epicurus…. When these people say there is no God, there is a tremendous difference between my statement and their statement, the statements are absolutely similar, because I say at the same moment that there is godliness.” —

Inner Worlds Outer Worlds

There is one vibratory field that connects all things. It has been called Akasha, Logos, the primordial OM, the music of the spheres, the Higgs field, dark energy, and a thousand other names throughout history. It is the same field of energy that saints, Buddhas, yogis, mystics, priests, shamans and seers have observed by looking within themselves. It is the common link between all religions, and the link between our inner worlds and our outer worlds.

OSHO: What Do You Say About Meditation?

“What Do You Say About Meditation” is the question Osho responds to in this video. He guides us through an understanding of three stages of consciousness.

“Contemplation is of the intellect.
Meditation is of intuition.
Meditation has no subject matter.
It is pure subjectivity.
Meditation is not thinking about something.
It is not thinking at all.
But one thing has to be remembered: it does not mean falling asleep. That’s what happens; if you are not thinking then the mind says, “What are you doing? Go to sleep.” Mind is at ease with thinking or with sleep, and just between the two is meditation: no thinking, no sleep. Thinking has been dropped and sleep has not been taken up. You are fully awake. It is awareness without thoughts. The road of your mind is completely empty of the continuous traffic of thoughts.”

OSHO: The Miracle of Meditation

Money, power, respectability, fame, recognition are all items on our favorite laundry-list, things we are running after, aren’t we? How are we doing, are we running fast enough to achieve them? Here comes OSHO with his unique and humorous insights to explain a few things about running — running fast…

“It is said that intelligence is not of much use unless you are intelligent enough to know how to use it. Just the other day I came across a tremendously great discovery. It says that every idiot you meet in the world is the end product of millions of years of evolution.”
