But whenever they are in power, you cannot say that you are against the law. They will change the law, they will manipulate the law, they will find loopholes in the law, and they will manage to do whatever they want to do. These are the people who should be crucified, but on the contrary, simple people like Mansoor and Socrates are crucified.
Up to now truth has been crucified and untruth has ruled over the world. But the mystics are absolutely right that for the right man there is no law.
Now, you are asking, Osho, who is the right man? I am sitting in front of you. I don’t have any law – there is no need. Glasses are needed if your eyes cannot see. Blind men need a staff to find out their way. But if your eyes are right, you don’t need any glasses. You don’t go on tapping with your staff finding your way. The right man is certainly beyond the law.
And you are asking, Osho, who is the right man? Have you not recognized me? And have you not seen that the same behavior has been done to me on a vast scale? Jesus was crucified in a very small part of the world, almost unknown to the other parts of the world – Judea. He was neither known all over the world nor condemned all over the world, just by the Jews. Socrates was condemned only by a city, Athens, because at that time Greece had only city-states, there was no nation as such.
But I sometimes wonder….
Just the other day I received the news that the second biggest party, the opposition party in Germany, has been fighting the ruling party so that they cannot make a law against me entering into their country. A few days ago they had their party convention. In the party convention they said, “We are going to fight because of something absolutely absurd and ridiculous.” The German law passed by the parliament is that not only can I not enter their land, but my airplane cannot land on any airport in Germany even for refueling.
In fifteen minutes I don’t think that I will be able to destroy their long tradition, great religion, all the morality…and from the airport! I would not be coming out of the airplane because I cannot land on their land according to their parliamentary law.
This Green Party, which is the second major party, has a future. Soon it might be the ruling party, and because this is becoming a possibility, now they themselves have become afraid. It was good to give fight to the ruling party – any excuse is enough to fight with the ruling party. Now they have become aware of what they are doing. When they become the ruling party, what are they going to do?
…”This man is certainly dangerous!”
So they have made an amendment in their fight: “We are against making laws against a single man who has never entered Germany and who has no intention either, but we want to make it clear that we don’t agree with this man. It is a question of legal parliamentarianism. It doesn’t look right so we will withdraw it, but that does not mean that we agree with this man.”
