I Celebrate Myself: God Is No Where, Life Is Now Here (New Edition)

Talks on Zen
I Celebrate Myself is a remarkable book in which Osho demolishes the belief in "a God above." The way in which all religions have kept man weighed down with guilt and judgments through the domination of the priests is laid bare. And yet this book is also a joyous celebration of each one of us, showing us that celebration is our natural state of being.

God is for sale. All churches, all denominations, all religions are selling God. They are the most dangerous people in the sense that they are giving you hopes which will never be fulfilled, and they are giving you consolations you will be utterly disappointed in.
Hence, I don’t want to give you any hope, any promise. I simply want you to explore on your own. If you can find something – good. If you can’t find anything, I am helpless. But I know if you search deeply enough you are bound to find." Osho

I Celebrate Myself is a remarkable book on many levels. First and foremost, Osho demolishes the belief in "a God above." The way in which all religions have kept man weighed down with guilt and judgments through the domination of the priests is laid bare. And yet this book is also a joyous celebration of each one of us, showing us that celebration is our natural state of being. The idea of man passing from cradle to grave without realizing that he has an inner life seems so shocking when we are reminded of all of his potential – brought to life by every buddha who has walked the earth, living proof that something more exists.

We are taken on a journey as the layers are peeled away: how with three hundred so-called religions on this earth, we have been free to choose – but not free not to choose. Osho makes it clear that, while he is eradicating the myth of God, his focus is in fact on the freedom of man. Simply through individual exploration using the tool of meditation, freedom from all imposed moralities is attained, beliefs drop away and man is transformed to live his potential. Fresh, new and alive, man can now celebrate his place in the cosmos. No longer struggling to make sense of his life, he is naturally at one with existence.

Excerpt from: I Celebrate Myself: God Is No Where, Life Is Now Here, Chapter 2
"The statement of Friedrich Nietzsche that God is dead, is only symbolic because God has never been in the first place – not even born. How can he be dead? But it was a tremendously powerful symbol to declare that God is dead.

"It was a recognition that we have been worshipping a lie. And it was not only worshipping, we were being destroyed by a lie. We had been exploited by the priesthood of all the organized religions. Our dignity has been destroyed. We have been turned into puppets in the hands of a fiction.

"His declaration that God is dead simply means that Man is born. That is the other side of the coin. And because man is born, he brings freedom to the earth, he brings joy to the earth, he brings dignity to the earth. And he destroys all that was clinging to the ultimate lie, God – all the superstitions, heaven and hell, all theologies, all religions…all kinds of false programming of man’s being. They have also died with God.

"Hence, I celebrate myself and I celebrate you.

"Friedrich Nietzsche’s statement also includes another part: ‘God is dead, therefore man is free.’God was the slavery of man, he was the bondage. He was the prison that did not allow humanity to rise to its ultimate heights. He was keeping the whole of humanity reduced to subhuman beings, sinners. His death is a great moment to celebrate.His death means man has come of age. He is no longer a child and he does not need a father figure. He can stand on his own feet. He is not a sheep, as all the religions have been telling him, and he does not need any shepherds. Jesus, Krishna, Mahavira, Mohammed, Moses… no prophets are needed, no saviors are needed, no messengers of God are needed. They were all megalomaniacs, and in the name of God they have been pushing human consciousness to the lowest levels of existence." Osho
