Talk #12 of the Series, Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance

"The only difference between men and other animals is that of values. No animal lives according to values; he lives blindly, not knowing why. His life force is unconscious of itself. Many men also live in the same way. They only look like men, but they have not yet transcended the animal. The transcendence of the animal is indicated by the values. But values can be of two types: one that is imposed upon you from the outside, thou shalt; and one that arises in your own being, I will.

"The first kind of value is just a hypocrisy. It is a strategy to make you believe that you have transcended the animals; but in fact you have even fallen below the animals. The animals are at least natural; you are not even natural."

Osho continues:
"Your values distort your nature, distort your simplicity, distort your innocence – but they give you a false notion that you are a man.

"The second kind of values are the authentic values. But for them, you have to avoid any kind of imposition from the outside, and you have to allow your own inner being and its still, small voice.

"The beginning of man is in the trust that he shows in his own inner voice.

"Zarathustra is talking about values in these statements:
No people could live without evaluating; but if it wishes to maintain itself it must not evaluate as its neighbor evaluates.
"Everybody has to be himself, not a carbon copy of his neighbor – although the whole crowd in the world, because of its immense majority, destroys the individual and makes him just a carbon copy.

"This whole thing goes on in the name of good intentions. Your parents, your priests, your leaders, your so-called saints are all doing one thing; they are not allowing you the freedom to be just yourself, and find your own values. They give you ready-made concepts – what is right, what is wrong, what is good, what is evil. They decide for you, and while you let them decide your life and your life's values you are not yet a man. You are just a slave.

"The greatest slavery is of the spirit.

"They are not binding your bodies and they are not imprisoning your bodies, but they are putting chains on your soul – and that is the worst slavery in the world. And it becomes even worse than it would have been, because the chains are of gold. And the chains of gold convince you that they are not chains but ornaments, that your society is making you richer, that your society is making you better. But chains are chains, whether they are made of steel or of gold. The chains of gold are worse, because there is a possibility of your clinging to them, and forgetting that they are your chains.

"With all good intentions, the people who think they love you, the people who think it is their duty to make a man of you, are really the destroyers."
