Pain – Awareness – Guilt

This pain is not to make you sad, remember. That’s where people go on missing…. This pain is just to make you more alert – because people become alert only when the arrow goes deep into their heart and wounds them. Otherwise they don’t become alert. When life is easy, comfortable, convenient, who cares? Who bothers to become alert? When a friend dies, there is a possibility. When your woman leaves you alone–those dark nights, you are lonely. You have loved that woman so much and you have staked all, and then suddenly one day she is gone. Crying in your loneliness, those are the occasions when, if you use them, you can become aware. The arrow is hurting: it can be used. The pain is not to make you miserable, the pain is to make you more aware! And when you are aware, misery disappears.

Also, drop guilt!  Because to be guilty is to live in hell. Not being guilty, you will have the freshness of dewdrops in the early morning sun, you will have the freshness of lotus petals in the lake, you will have the freshness of the stars in the night. Once guilt disappears you will have a totally different kind of life, luminous and radiant. You will have a dance to your feet and your heart will be singing a thousand and one songs.

Pain, suffering,  is only useful if it is used as described by Osho. To relive and relive and relive pain – as we often do individually and collectively – is a kind of stupidity. Wars are an expression of repeated pain without any understanding… And guilt is one of the most destructive feelings one can have and makes everybody really miserable. Strange enough that guilt is so much promoted in society, i.e. in the Global Warming Religion where every man on earth is now guilty or the everlasting guilt of the German people…
