Talk #6 of the Series, I Celebrate Myself: God Is No Where, Life Is Now Here


"A famous psychoanalyst, Franz Strunz from Munich, has been studying child behavior in dreams, and he has found that Sigmund Freud's original idea was not right.

"Sigmund Freud's original idea was that the child – every child, particularly in the civilized and cultured world – lives under repressive morality, repressive priesthood, repressive parents, and he cannot understand exactly why his natural and spontaneous behavior is unacceptable. He is not yet grown up in the mind – the mind will come slowly – but he has been born as a natural being. So he finds it absolutely difficult to understand why his natural behavior is condemned.

"But because he has to be dependent on the parents – and he is utterly helpless – he has to accept the God that the parents believe in, and he has to accept all the commandments in which the parents believe."

Osho continues:
"And they drive the child to the church, or to whatever religious organization they belong. This is the beginning of programming the child.

"Sigmund Freud's original thesis was that under these circumstances the child finds only freedom in his dreams. The parents are no longer there, the priest is no longer there, God is no longer there…no morality, no condemnation, no repression, no inhibition. In his dreams he lives a very natural and very pleasant life. That becomes a substitute for him. And I am absolutely in agreement with Sigmund Freud.

"The child does not know yet what is dream and what is real, it takes a little time. That is why you cannot remember if you go backwards. Up to the age of four you may be able to remember a few things; beyond that is a complete blank, but things were happening. From your birth, up to the age of four, things were happening but you don't have any memory of them because you did not have yet a mind.

"The mind is a social product. It takes at least four years to program the child to be ready to accept anything that is told to him, because he knows if he denies it, he will suffer punishment – not only here but in hellfire.

"But in his dreams, up to the age of four, he enjoys absolute freedom. Hence Sigmund Freud said that children's dreams are very pleasant, very beautiful. In fact, the child can cope with reality only because of his dreams. The dreams are compensatory.

"This man, Franz Strunz, has been surveying hundreds of children and their dreams, and his conclusion is that Sigmund Freud was wrong. So first I have to give you his statement.

"'Sigmund Freud's views on child dreams have been challenged by Munich psychologist, Franz Strunz:

"Sigmund Freud claimed that children's dreams revealed the pleasure-oriented nature of nocturnal figments of an imagination, which was not hampered by the suppression and repression of the adult emotional make-up, and which aimed at making secret wishes come true.'

"Obviously, dreams are very private. Nobody can enter your dreams, and nobody can know what you are dreaming. The child has absolute freedom, but he is not free when he is awake – naturally he compensates."
