Love is Nourishment in Itself

Osho_quote Love

Talk given by Osho to a group of his students in December 1987

(The talk begins with one of the students asking Osho a question)

“Beloved Master, can you please talk about the art of nourishing oneself with Love? I feel so much love for you! Is this enough?”

Osho answers with the following:

Deva Bhasha, love is never enough. There are mysteries in existence which don’t have any limitation. Love is the closest experience to understanding all those mysteries – because as far as the mind is concerned, it imposes limits; it cannot accept anything that is unlimited.

Just think of the whole universe. The mind can conceive of it as very vast, perhaps the boundaries of it are not available to us, but the mind finds it intrinsically impossible to conceive that there may be no boundaries at all, anywhere.

The universe has no boundaries; life has no boundaries. Continue reading

The Story of the Stork

There is a lot of mystery around the story of the Stork bringing the baby to its mother.  Of all the postings on the internet about this particular topic, none of them have ever made reference to the verse in the Bible that talks of the two female Celestial Beings with wings like storks.  Zechariah 5:9 reads:

9 Then I looked up and saw two women flying toward us, gliding on the wind. They had wings like a stork, and they picked up the basket and flew into the sky.  (NLT) Continue reading

Child Abuse through Religion

abuse through religion 3

Mothers, be careful how you deal with your children.  You do not have a right the threaten or cajole a child into doing what you want using anything other than your OWN authority. You cannot bring other people  into your demands for good behaviour, for example, saying things like ”what do you think the neighbours will think of you if you do such and such….”, and “Just wait until your father hears about this,” for behaviour that you can deal with yourself.

Also, you are very unwise to bring a God that you don’t even know exists into your arguments with your kids.  You don’t know the mind of anyone other than yourself, so who do you think you are to do that to your children?  Think about it.  A good and fair way to deal with children is to say to them “Mummy wants you to do this because Mummy knows that it’s best and safest for you to do it.”  Any other argument is psychological child abuse. If the child still refuses to do what he or she is told, then you can restrict their privileges as a consequence of rebellious behaviour, but you make the decision and your child should hear that it was your decision to do so, nobody else’s.
