It is so incredible to go back and revisit this, now. I mentioned before I was just a youngster - 6th grade or so - when Osho was being arrested and persecuted in Oregon, when he was the Bhagwan. The local news made him out to be a monster. For the longest time I thought of him as a perverted weirdo.
The first little crack came when I discovered a book that belonged to my wife, Samantha by OSHO. I read it and thought it was awesome. And I wondered who this OSHO was - I'd never heard of him. And then I learned it was the former Bhagwan.
And then, it was though my conversations with you, and the book you recommended. Love, Freedom and Aloneness. I began reading that in Taiwan last fall. I still haven't finished it. But it is such a lovely book.
I will make time to listen to that. Ideas on how to breath fresh air into any closed-minded are what I need.
Thank you so much for those quotes! Already I feel excited.
To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
