taking oneself too seriously…..OSHO

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

taking oneself too seriously.....

Once Buddha was asked — somebody had committed suicide and he was asked, 'Why does someone commit suicide?


And Buddha said, 'Through taking oneself too seriously.' And that is so.

The people who commit suicide are the people who take themselves too seriously.

The people who take themselves too seriously may or may not commit suicide, but they live their suicide, a slow suicide.

They are never alive to the optimum.

So remember these two things — love and laughter.

Between these two is the gap for you.

In these two all is going to happen.

Between these two the world will stop.
