Life consists of being alive — OSHO

Sannyas has to be a real break away. A loving surrender to the new....

Life consists of being alive --

When you are meditating,

always remember that

the periphery is not to be lost permanently.

You have to come to the periphery again and again

so the route remains clear and the path remains there.

Hence my insistence to meditate

but not to renounce the world.

Meditate in the morning

and then go to the market;

meditate in the morning and then go to your office.

Meditate and then make love!

Don't create any dichotomy,

don't create any conflict.

Don't say, "Now how can I love?

I am a meditator."

Then you are moving in a dangerous direction;

sooner or later you will lose all contact with the periphery.

Then you will become frozen at the center.

And life consists of being alive —

changing, moving. Life is dynamic, it is not dead.
