Talk #15 of the Series, Socrates Poisoned Again After 25 Centuries

Have the hardships which you have just lived through caused you to modify your philosophy? Do you feel resentment?

"I do not have a philosophy; hence nothing can make any difference to it. I have a way of life, and there is no possibility which can modify it because it is not a mind projection, it is my innermost being and its experience.

"Whatever happens to my body or to my mind is not going to change me.

"I am the watcher on the hills.

"My mind and my body are far away.

"Secondly, you are asking if it has given me any resentment. That too is impossible.

"I see things as they are.

"If somebody is ugly it does not make me resentful.

"If somebody is disgusting it does not make me resentful, it simply makes me compassionate."

Osho continues:
"I have never felt more love for America than I feel now – for the people of America, the land of America. It is under an ugly government, a fascist government which is pretending to be democratic, but it is not; it is pure hypocrisy. I am not resentful against the government of America. Whatever they did to me I have taken note of it and I have seen their real face.

"I am going to expose that face to the whole world, not out of resentment, but with a hope that perhaps this exposure may change them. Even if they do not change, they will lose face before the world. Either they have to change themselves or they will be losing millions of people around the world who would have been their friends.

"I was one of their friends.

"My people were their friends.

"They have unnecessarily lost millions of friends.

"I feel sorry for them, but the question of resentment does not arise for the simple reason that my heart has no space for resentment, no space for anger, no space for hatred. Even if they had killed me, I would have died with immense love towards them, and that love would not be the same as Jesus Christ's.

"For two thousand years Christian theologians have been misinterpreting Jesus. His last words on the cross were, 'Father, forgive these people because they know not what they are doing.' If you analyze this statement, it has many implications. First, you can forgive only if you have already become angry. Asking God to forgive them does not show that God is angry – because nobody knows about God – but that Jesus is angry and resentful. Jesus was trying his best to follow his philosophy; but that philosophy was not his way of life. That is why a great effort is needed to follow it; it is not spontaneous. So first, to ask God to forgive these people shows resentment, anger.

"Secondly, the reason he is asking for them to be forgiven is very egoistic. He is saying, 'They do not know what they are doing' – he knows; they do not know. That was the whole problem for which he was being crucified; he was pretending to be the only begotten son of God, that his words were directly from God, that he knows and nobody else knows."
