Talk #46 of the Series, Reflections on Khalil Gibran's The Prophet

This would I have you remember in remembering me:
That which seems most feeble and bewildered in you is the strongest and the most determined.

"Almustafa is giving his last words to the people amongst whom he has dwelt for twelve years. But such is the compassion of the man of wisdom that, although he was ignored, neglected, laughed at – and sometimes even condemned – he still feels a great love and a great compassion for the same people who have always misbehaved with him.

"When al-Hillaj Mansoor, a Sufi mystic, was killed by the fanatics and the bigots, there were thousands of people who could not believe that when a man is being killed in such a cruel way – not even Jesus was killed in such a cruel way – he can stand aloof."

Osho continues:
"First they cut off his legs, then they cut off his hands, then they took his eyes out – piece by piece. But all this time, when blood was flowing from every part of his body, he was smiling. Somebody asked, 'Why are you smiling?'

"He said, 'I am smiling because you don't know what you are doing, you are fast asleep; if you had been awake, you would have understood my smile. My smile indicates that you are not killing me; you are killing yourself. By destroying my body I am not destroyed, but by destroying my body you are destroying the only example you had amongst you of your future glory, of your future growth, of your future actualizations.

"'When I say you are destroying yourself, I simply mean this: you are removing from your being the person who could have awakened you. You are so afraid – it is out of fear that you are killing me, out of fear that 'This man is going to wake everyone up' – and you don't want to wake up. You are so much invested in your sleep and in your dreams, you don't want to know the truth.'

"Almustafa has no complaint against these people, but only a deep compassion. And this has been the case with all the mystics.

"Just three years ago I predicted that if you don't change your rotten ideas about human energy, about sex, about man's natural growth, three-fourths of humanity would die of AIDS. I said this in a world press conference – nobody believed me. They could not see any sign anywhere to support my idea: 'Maybe a few people are going to die of the disease, but not two-thirds of the whole humanity.'

"Just today my personal physician, Dr. Amrito, has sent me a report telling me, 'For the first time, medical science is supporting your prediction, because there are many places in America where homosexuality has reached the point of seventy percent' – my prediction was only for sixty-six percent. And the same is happening in Africa; perhaps the percentage is even greater there, just medical research is missing.

"Anando, one of my secretaries, has also brought a few press cuttings to show me."
