Godless and Yet So Godly

Talk #11 of the Series, The Sword and the Lotus

"All promises are poisons because they are political not religious. The people who have promised you that you have only to surrender to them and they will take you to the ultimate goal of light; you have just to follow them and they will take you to the kingdom of God…these promises have created a spiritually slave humanity. These promises have not helped anyone.

"Do you have a single witness who can say, 'Following Jesus I have reached the kingdom of God'? In two thousand years the promise remains there, and you remain in your misery, in your anguish, in your utter spiritual poverty.

"It is very significant to understand that no one can take you to the ultimate goal of light except yourself. That is your prerogative, your privilege."

Osho continues:
"That is your freedom, your individuality and its beauty.

"Nobody can interfere with your spiritual growth. You are not cattle that somebody can take you somewhere. But you have been insulted, humiliated so continuously, that you have become almost accustomed to it and you don't feel the insult of it. Somebody saying to you, 'Surrender to me' – and you don't see the humiliation…?

"To whom did Krishna surrender? He never surrendered to anybody. To whom did Jesus surrender? He never surrendered to anybody.

"And if these people had some beauty, the beauty was their individuality, their freedom, their absolute uniqueness. A surrendered human being has almost fallen below humanity.

"Jesus said to the people, 'I am your shepherd, and you are the sheep.' And nobody even raised any objection that this was very insulting. On what grounds do you become the shepherd and reduce other human beings who are just like you into animals, into sheep? But any lie repeated again and again starts appearing to be a truth.

"These words have been repeated so often by the so-called spiritual masters that you have forgotten what they are doing to your being. They are destroying you. There is no need for any surrender – the very word is ugly. There is no need to follow anybody, because if you follow somebody you will always remain a blind follower, you will never attain in your own eyes. And the most wonderful thing is: the people who are telling you these things have never themselves done those acts. They have never surrendered, they have never followed – and that's what gives them grandeur, makes them pinnacles of consciousness.

"You should try to understand Jesus, not to follow him. You should try to understand Krishna, not to surrender to him. It is your understanding that is going to lead you to higher levels of being. Do not depend on anybody else to help. There have been so many saviors in the world and the world is not saved yet – so many prophets, so many incarnations of God, so many tirthankaras…and what is the result? And they have all claimed that they have come to redeem the world from pain, from misery, from ignorance."
