Nightly Spiritual Quote #163 Osho

Here, start living moment to moment totally and intensely, joyfully and playfully — and you will see that nothing goes out of control; that your intelligence becomes sharper; that you become younger; that your love becomes deeper. And when you go out into the world, wherever you go, spread life, playfulness, joy, as far away as possible — to every nook and corner of the earth.

Nightly Spiritual Quote #156 Osho

Love unconditionally. Don’t ask anything in return. Much comes on its own, that’s another thing. Don’t be a beggar. In love be an emperor. Just give it and see what happens. A thousandfold it comes back. But one has to learn it. Otherwise one remains a miser. One gives a little and waits for much to come back, and your waiting, your expectation, destroys the whole beauty of it.

Nightly Spiritual Quote #142 Osho

Understanding means a state of no-mind.
That’s what meditation is all about.
Meditation is the art of putting the mind aside,
not allowing it to interfere, not allowing it to
stand between you and the real.
When you face the real without any
interference of any kind – philosophical,
political, religious – when there is no idea between
you and the real, when the real is simply reflected
in you like a tree is reflected in the lake or the face
is reflected in a mirror,
then there is understanding.
Understanding is a byproduct of meditation;
misunderstanding is a shadow of the mind.
And these are the only two ways a man can live:
either one can live as a mind or
one can live as meditation.
Understanding arises out of silence;
silence means no-mind.

Nightly Spiritual Quote #135 Osho

Remember one thing: meditation means awareness. Whatsoever you do with awareness is meditation. Action is not the question, but the quality that you bring to your action.

Walking can be a meditation if you walk alertly. Sitting can be a meditation if you sit alertly. Listening to the birds can be a meditation if you listen with awareness. Just listening to the inner noise of your mind can be a meditation if you remain alert and watchful.

Nightly Spiritual quote #121 Osho

You ask: How to stop thinking? I say: Just watch, be alert.
And drop this idea of stopping, otherwise it will stop the natural transformation of the mind. Drop this idea of stopping!
Who are you to stop? At the most, enjoy.

And nothing is wrong – even if immoral thoughts, so-called immoral thoughts, pass through your mind, let them pass; nothing is wrong.
You remain detached. No harm is being done. It is just fiction; you are seeing an inner movie. Allow it its own way and it will lead you, by and by, to the state of no-mind.

Watching ultimately culminates in no-mind.

No-mind is not against mind: no-mind is beyond mind.
No-mind does not come by killing and destroying the mind: no-mind comes when you have understood the mind so totally that thinking is no longer needed — your understanding has replaced it.

Nightly Spiritual Quote #114 Osho

To come to know that nothing is good, nothing is bad, is a turning point; it is a conversion. You start looking in; the outside reality loses meaning. The social reality is a fiction, a beautiful drama; you can participate in it, but then you don’t take it seriously. It is just a role to be played; play it as beautifully, as efficiently, as possible. But don’t take it seriously, it has nothing of the ultimate in it.
