Chapter 8: Dissolve Yourself

If he had asked he would have missed; if he had accepted he would have missed - because whatsoever comes to you without your earning it is never yours. You possess only that which you have lived. You possess only that which you have known. You possess only that which you have earned.

A young boy had been taking swimming lessons. He rushed home one afternoon and breathlessly announced that he had gone off the diving board by himself.

“That’s fine, Johnny,” said his father. “But I thought you told me you went off the board last week.”

“I know,” said the boy, “but last week somebody shoved.”

Going by yourself is really totally different. When somebody shoves you, it is qualitatively different. When I give something to you, it is not the same as when you earn it. Remember it: many will be the temptations on the way. When things are available very cheaply, avoid them. Always remember that one has to go the hard way because that is the only way.

All shortcuts are false, and belief is a shortcut. Faith is a hard way.

The last question:

Osho,
This morning I sit before you flooded with orgasm - light and feathery, deep and overwhelming. I hardly notice you. The inner is more, because of you.

Paras, good, tremendously good. That’s how it should be. A Baul is born in Paras, and I hope that a Baul will be born in each of you. God is available each moment. Just allow him, don’t prevent him, don’t bar the way. Just get out of your own way and this will start happening to each and everybody.

“This morning I sit before you flooded with orgasm - light and feathery, deep and overwhelming. I hardly notice you. The inner is more, because of you.”

Enough for today.
