Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -
and there is no experiment up to now
that has found any center in the brain
which corresponds to awareness.
The whole work of meditation is
to make you aware of all that is "mind"
and disidentify yourself from it.
That very separation is the
greatest revolution that can happen to man.
Now you can do and act on only that
which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.
- Osho

who is not really in love
who says the more tender things.

When you are eating, eat totally -
chew totally, taste totally, smell totally.

And then meditation is not separate from life.
- Osho

Looking at a sunset, just for a second
you forget your separateness:
you are the sunset.

enclosed entity of the ego.
Now the mind is speaking.
- Osho

Can miles truly separate us from friends?
If we want to be with someone we love, aren't we already there?

perhaps a cherished memory,
but only a dream - nothing more.
I will make all decisions and actions based solely
on what I have today as a starting point."
