Chapter 31: Watchfulness: The Essential Religion
If this time she does it well I will specially smile at her, and wave too, because if a person is doing so much.. Everybody cannot wolf-whistle. Particularly girls don’t do that; - boys do that! She is daring, courageous - and I love daring and courageous people. And if I wave at her, then everybody will appreciate her. But that does not mean that every girl should start wolf-whistling at me. Don’t disturb the peace and the music and the silence of the place.
There were two pregnant cats standing next to the garbage pile looking for mice. One turned to the other and said, “Do you know the big ginger tomcat with the bushy tail? Well, he’s the one who put me in the family way. Who is the father of yours?”
The other pregnant cat replied, “I don’t know. I had my head in an empty sardine can at the time.”
There are people and people. And you have to learn.love all!
Yesterday I was wondering why I still get so caught up sometimes in my German seriousness and wanting things to run perfectly. Today it is all gone. You showered us with so much love this morning that all worries are swept away. Something opened in me that makes me want to dance and sing and embrace the whole world. It feels so good to feel so drunk with love in the middle of the day, rather than pulling myself together after discourse and getting carried away with organizing and getting things done more efficiently. But this new state has a strong side effect; it brings up my lazy side and, totally unusual for me lately, I feel sensuous and sexual from top to toe. Beloved Osho, any advice as to how to combine these two sides? Or should I just let go and see what happens?
Nandan, first your feeling sensuous and sexual from top to toe: a simple device is to start wolf-whistling as much.I will really love it! And all your sexuality and sensuousness will disappear in it.
You say, “Yesterday I was wondering why I still get so caught up sometimes in my German seriousness and wanting things to run perfectly.”
I need a few Germans; otherwise who will take care of all my lazy people? So don’t be serious about it; it is absolutely needed by the commune. And particularly for a German it is so natural that not to be serious will be an unnecessary torture.
You say, “Today it is all gone. You showered us with so much love this morning that all worries are swept away. Something opened in me that makes me want to dance and sing and embrace the whole world.”
All worries may have gone, but the idea of embracing the whole world is the idea of Adolf Hitler; he was also trying to embrace the whole world. People just did not like it - that’s their problem. But he made immense effort, and he had almost succeeded.
