You ask the question. Go on!
Even the dodos are laughing now. By the time your question is complete, I don’t think anybody here will dare not to let-go.
(Given the festive mood, everyone laughs uproariously at the seriousness of the question and Maneesha is forced to pause. Osho himself is laughing, which tickles everybody into even more laughter.)
While reading the chapter called “The Wanderer” from The Sound of Running Water, I saw that the culminating sentence was, “Yet the call is heard, as somewhere in our being the promise is remembered.” With this sentence there was an explosion of energy in my heart, bringing tears to my eyes.
Yes, it will happen again. An explosion too will happen. And tears will also come to your eyes – they are already coming!
…Complete the question.
(The continued reading is accompanied by wave upon wave of laughter which crests again and Maneesha stops. Years of serious spiritual questioning dissolves in the merriment – it is as though a whole auditorium full of Mahakashyapas have suddenly got the joke – and Osho seems to be co-conspirator in the chaos.
The stylized question-and-answer format has gone completely out the window. It is turning into a dialogue, a dance between Osho and Maneesha while the background music is supplied by nonstop laughter.)
Osho, I have always known – but I feel so afraid: even as the explosion happened…
You have been always afraid and now it is going to happen!
Just gather courage.
Even as the explosion happened, I was escaping. Osho, I call you “Beloved Master” but still I escape.
(There is a silence as Osho searches through the pages of his clipboard. Apparently, there is no joke funnier than the next question.)
You read the next question now because the reading of your questions is preparing people. Go on.
