Osho quotes

Best Quotes

If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up, it dies, and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.

Osho

Experience life in all possible ways good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don't be afraid of experience because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.

Osho

Life begins where fear ends.

Osho

Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny. He has something to fulfil, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally--you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.

Osho

The moment love becomes a relationship, it becomes a bondage. Because there are expectations and there are demands, there are frustration and an effort from both the sides to dominate. It becomes struggles for power.

Views of Rajneesh (Osho) on Relationship

Love is not starting or creating a relationship, nor surrendering to each other. Someone asked a question about whether surrender is purely political. However, not a question of love. Therefore, "a relationship is not love at all." The human relationship is a kind of bound to bondage. On the other hand, surrendering to love means getting involved in the happiness of others, rejoicing in the being of the person you love, being in tune with others, and dancing in rhythm. Furthermore, he also said that kinship is certain death and a closed thing. However, love is pure and based on a give-and-take relationship. The family relationship is always a substitute, structured and accompanied by unloving people.

The Relationship Sutra

The relationship never occurred before the egos came in front and the husband and wife hid behind. The relationship sutra of Osho says that there are four people living on the sleeping bed. When a husband and wife hide behind their egos, those two egos make love. However, real contact does not happen between them. Thus, the relationship exists between two equal people. Therefore, in Indian culture, women are always exploited and vice versa. If in every couple (relationship) there is fear, love cannot enter into fear. Therefore, they cannot survive together.
