From Unconsciousness to Consciousness

Osho ends three years of silence and begins an entirely new phase of his work. Sometimes shocking and always humorous, he exposes the lies to which society still so earnestly adheres.
Osho talks directly to those who are listening now, ruthlessly attacking the hypocrisy and will-to-power that are hiding behind the names of democracy, capitalism, religion, relationship, and the family. With an extraordinary freshness, Osho ridicules the stories we tell to protect our egos, and inspires us to have the courage to go within and experience ourselves as we are.

"I am not against anybody. But my basic work is to expose before you all the diseases, the bondages, so that you are not caught in them, so you can remain free, so you can have a merger with existence, without any barrier." Osho

Excerpt from: From Unconsciousness to Consciousness, Chapter 2
Jesus says, ‘come follow me.’ You’re against this statement. What would you like to say about it?

"Jesus says, ‘Come follow me.’ It is not only Jesus who says it: Krishna says it too, Buddha says it too. All the old religions of the world are based on that statement. But that statement is a psychological exploitation of man. I cannot say, ‘Come follow me.’

"First, those who have said it have crippled humanity, have made humanity helpless. They certainly fulfilled a certain need. People don't want to be on their own. They don't have the guts to create their own path, to walk and create it. They want to be led. But they don't know that if you are being led, slowly slowly, even if you have eyes, you will lose them. You will be seeing through the eyes of Jesus, Krishna, Mohammed. Your eyes will not be needed; in fact your eyes will cause a disturbance.

"The leader wants you to surrender your eyes and see through his eyes; surrender your legs and walk with his legs; to not believe in yourself but believe in him. To me it is a crime; it is crippling you, paralyzing you, destroying you. And you can see it all over the world. The whole of humanity is destroyed by such statements and such people.

"I can say to you, ‘Come and share me,’ but I cannot say, ‘Follow me.’ Who am I that you have to follow?

"And you have to understand also that each individual is so unique that if you start following somebody you will be automatically imitating. You will lose your identity. You will start becoming phony, a hypocrite. You will not be yourself, but somebody else. You will become split.

"You will have a mask: Christian, Hindu, Mohammedan, Buddhist. That will be just the mask that you and the person you have been following have created – it is not your authentic face. You are going against yourself, and you will be in suffering... and the whole of humanity is in suffering.

"It sounds very strange to say that such statements are criminal, because they come from nice people like Jesus, Buddha, Confucius. You can understand my difficulty too. I have to say it the way it is." Osho
