Talk #3 of the Series, The Mustard Seed

"Jesus, or Buddha, or anybody who is awakened, will find you all drunk. The drunkenness is of many types, but the drunkenness is there. You are not alert, you are not awake: you simply think that you are awake and alert. Your sleep continues from birth to death.

"Gurdjieff used to tell a small story:

"There was a man who owned thousands of sheep, and he was always in trouble because the sheep would go astray and they would become the victims of wild animals. So he asked a wise man, and the wise man suggested, 'Keep watchdogs.' So he had a hundred dogs to keep watch on the sheep. They would not allow the sheep to go out, and if any sheep tried to go out they would kill it."

Osho continues:
"By and by, they became so addicted to killing that they started to murder the sheep; they became a danger. So again the man came to the wise man and said, 'It has become dangerous, the protectors have become murderers.'

"It always happens: look at your politicians, they are the protectors, the watchdogs, but once they are powerful they start killing.

"The wise man said, 'Then there is only one way. I will come.' So he came, and he hypnotized all the sheep and told them, 'You are awake, alert, completely free. Nobody is your owner.' Then those sheep remained in that hypnotic state, and they would not go anywhere. They would not escape because this was not a prison, and they all believed that they were the owners, masters of their own selves. Even if a sheep was killed by the master, they would think, 'This is her fate, not mine. Nobody can kill me. I have an immortal self and I am totally free, so there is no need to escape.' Then there was no need for watchdogs, and the master was at ease because the sheep were hypnotized, they lived in a semi-sleep.

"And that is the state in which you are, in which Jesus finds you, in which I find you. But nobody has hypnotized you; this is an autohypnosis. You are both the wise man who hypnotized the sheep and the sheep who was hypnotized; you have autohypnotized.

"There is a certain method of autohypnotizing yourself: if you think a particular thought continuously you will be hypnotized by it; if you look at a thing continuously you will be hypnotized by it; if you brood on something continuously you will be hypnotized by it.

"It happened that a French poet went to the United States. He was shown around New York and the guide brought him to the Empire State Building. The poet looked amazed. He looked again and again, and then said, 'It reminds me of sex.'

"The guide was puzzled. He had heard many types of reactions, but this was something new. Nobody had ever commented, looking at the Empire State Building, that it reminded them of sex."
