Persons [ ] The Other Shore | Osho, 1983


Marco Paoluzzo, Dyrholaey Iceland, 1991

”This is my fundamental teaching: that there is no division between this and that. That is contained in this, the other shore is contained in this shore. You need not go anywhere. If you can be joyous, flowing, alive, sensitive, orgasmic, this very shore immediately is transformed into the other shore.”

”The sensuous person is liquid, flowing, fluid. Each experience, and he becomes it. Seeing a sunset, he is the sunset. Seeing the night, dark night, beautiful silent darkness, he becomes the darkness. In the morning he becomes the light. He is all that life is. He tastes life from every nook and corner, hence he becomes rich. This is real richness. Listening to music he is music, listening to the sound of water he becomes that sound. And when the wind passes through a bamboo grove, and the cracking bamboos, and he is not far away from them: he is amidst them, one of them — he is a bamboo.”

”A mystic is one who has dropped all dreams, who has thrown away this mirror of the mind and who looks directly into life, without any medium interfering. Then he sees the eternal progression, then in a single moment he sees all eternity, and in a single atom he can see the whole reflected.”

”To be sensuous means to become aware of the circumference, and to be spiritual means to become aware of the center. Sensuousness is the beginning of spirituality. Become more and more sensuous; that is the way of being alive.”

”Real meditation means: don’t avoid the inner madhouse; enter into it, face it, encounter it, be watchful, because it is through watchfulness that you will overcome it.”

”Remember, truth cannot be conquered. One has to surrender to truth, one has to be conquered by truth.”

”If you are intelligent, if you are alert, the ordinary becomes the extraordinary.”

  1. Εκείνη ακριβώς τη στιγμή που λέει
    από μέσα του:
    Και τι δε θα ‘δινα για να ‘χω τη χαρά
    να βρισκόμουν πλάι σου στην Ισλανδία
    στο φως της μεγάλης ακίνητης μέρας
    και να μοιραζόμαστε τούτη τη στιγμή
    -όπως μοιράζεται κανείς τη μουσική
    ή τη γεύση ενός φρούτου-
    εκείνη τη στιγμή ακριβώς
    βρισκόταν πλάι της στην Ισλανδία.

    Νοσταλγία του παρόντος / Jorge Luis Borges /
    1899-1986 /μτφ Δημήτρη Καλοκύρη
