Osho Quotes

Quotes by Osho - (38 quotes)

Osho - From the Anxiety category:

Anxiety comes into existence only when we become identified with small things. And they all pass. (Osho)

Osho - From the Awareness category:

Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic, that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea - and there is no experiment up to now that has found any center in the brain which corresponds to awareness. (Osho)

Osho - From the Concentration category:

Whatsoever you are doing, be absorbed in it so utterly that the mind thinks nothing, is just there, is just a presence. And more and more totality will be coming. (Osho)

Osho - From the Contentment category:

Those who remain content easily remain small: small are their joys, small are their ecstasies, small are their silences, small is their being. But there is no need! This smallness is your own imposition upon your freedom, upon your unlimited possibilities, upon your unlimited potential. (Osho)

Osho - From the Courage category:

In this world the greatest courage is to drop the mind aside... see the world without the barrier of the mind, just as it is. It is tremendously different, utterly beautiful. (Osho)

Osho - From the Creativity category:

You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it. (Osho)

It's not a question of learning much... On the contrary. It's a question of unlearning much. (Osho)

Osho - From the Ego category:

Ego cannot bring anything extraordinary into the world; the extraordinary comes only through egolessness. And so is the case with the musician and the poet and the dancer. So is the case with everybody. (Osho)

Osho - From the Experience category:

Don't be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become. (Osho)

Osho - From the Fire category:

Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young. Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke. That is what awareness is. (Osho)

Osho - From the Friendship category:

Friendship is the purest love. It is the highest form of Love where nothing is asked for, no condition, where one simply enjoys giving. (Osho)

Become more and more innocent, less knowledgeable and more childlike. Take life as fun - because that's precisely what it is! (Osho)

Osho - From the Happiness category:

Happiness is a shadow of harmony; it follows harmony. There is no other way to be happy. (Osho)

Osho - From the Humility category:

You come to the master only in deep humbleness, because learning is possible only in humbleness. You have come to surrender, not to perform, not to manipulate, not to impress. (Osho)

Osho - From the Individuality category:

Unless you drop your personality you will not be able to find your individuality. Individuality is given by existence; personality is imposed by the society. (Osho)

Osho - From the Joy category:

Without zest, what is life? Just waiting for death? It can't be anything else. Only with zest do you live; otherwise you vegetate. (Osho)

Osho - From the Love category:

The fragrance of the heart is made up of the qualities and virtues of our spirit. Most of us have learned how to keep our heart closed in a world that would trample all over us if we let it. Being open hearted today seems to require tremendous courage. (Osho)

Osho - From the Meditation category:

Meditation is just being delighted in your own presence... where you are not doing anything. The moment doing enters, you become tense; anxiety enters immediately. How to do? What to do? How to succeed? How not to fail? You have already moved into the future. (Osho)

Osho - From the Mirrors category:

If you can become a mirror you have become a meditator. Meditation is nothing but skill in mirroring. And now, no word moves inside you so there is no distraction. (Osho)

If the mind wants to comprehend reality, it will have to come out of the past and the future. But coming out of the past and the future, it is no longer the mind at all. (Osho)

Osho - From the Relaxation category:

Don't seek, don't search, don't ask, don't knock, don't demand - relax. If you relax, it comes. If you relax, it is there. If you relax, you start vibrating with it. (Osho)

Osho - From the Religion category:

A really religious person has no theology. Yes, he has the experience, he has the truth, he has that luminosity, but he has no theology. (Osho)

All that you need is just to be silent and listen to existence. (Osho)

Aloneness is the presence of oneself. Aloneness is very positive... You are so full of presence that you can fill the whole universe with your presence and there is no need for anybody. (Osho)

Osho - From the Spontaneity category:

To be spontaneous means not to act out of the past, because out of the past is all cunningness, cleverness, calculation, arithmetic. (Osho)

Osho - From the Time category:

Time consists of only two tenses, the past and the future. The present is not part of time; the present is part of eternity. (Osho)

The moment you enter into the world of words you start falling away from that which is. The more you enter into language, the farther you are away from existence. (Osho)
