Love Temple Wisdom No. 26

“Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still, small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way. Be the person you are. Never try to be another, and you will become mature. Maturity is accepting the responsibility of being oneself, whatsoever the cost. Risking all to be oneself, that's what maturity is all about.”  ― Osho

“Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny--he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally--you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.”  ― Osho

Love Temple Wisdom No. 23

“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.”  ― Osho

Sunday Church No. 24: Happy Father’s Day!

One who is ready to go on the exploration called truth has to be ready also to commit many errors, mistakes – has to be able to risk.  One may go astray, but that is how one arrives.  Going many, many times astray, one learns how not to go astray.  Committing many mistakes one learns what is a mistake and how not to commit it.  Knowing what is error, one comes closer and closer to what is truth.  It is an individual exploration; you cannot depend on other’s conclusions. – Osho
