Only as a warrior can one withstand the path of knowledge. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His or Her life is an endless challenge, and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges.

The word intimacy comes from a Latin root, intimum. Intimum means your interiority, your innermost core. Unless you have something there, you can’t be intimate with anybody. You cannot allow intimum, intimacy, because the other person will see the hole, the wound, and the pus oozing out of it. He will see that you don’t know who you are, that you are a madman, that you don’t know where you are going, that you have not even heard your own song, that your life is a chaos, it is not a cosmos. Hence the fear of intimacy. Even lovers rarely become intimate. And just to be sexually related to somebody is not intimacy. The genital orgasm is not all that is there in intimacy. It is just the periphery of it; intimacy can exist with it, can exist without it. Intimacy is a totally different dimension. It is allowing the other to come into you, to see you as you see yourself, to allow the other to see you from your inside, to invite somebody to that deepest core of your being. In the modern world intimacy is disappearing. Even lovers are not intimate. Friendship is only a word now— it has disappeared. And the reason? The reason is that there is nothing to share. Who wants to show one’s inner poverty? One wants to pretend: “I am rich, I have arrived, I know what I am doing, I know where I am going.” One is not ready and courageous enough to open up, to show one’s inner chaos and to be vulnerable. The other may exploit it— that fear is there. The other may become too dominant. Seeing that you are a chaos, seeing that you need a master, that you are not a master of your own being, the other may become the master. Hence everybody tries to protect themselves so nobody knows their inner helplessness; otherwise they can be exploited. This world consists of much exploitation. Love is the goal, and once the goal is clear you start growing an inner richness. The wound disappears and becomes a lotus; the wound is transformed into a lotus. That is the miracle of love, the magic of love. Love is the greatest alchemical force in the world. ~Osho~

There are two types of creators in the world. One type of creator--poets, painters, they work with objects, they create things. The other type of creator, the mystics, create themselves. They don't work with objects, they each work with the subject; they each work on their self, their own being. And they are the real creators, the real poets, because each makes their self into a masterpiece.
You are carrying a masterpiece hidden within you. But you might be standing in the way. Just move aside, then the masterpiece will be revealed. Everyone is a masterpiece, because existence never gives birth to anything less than that. Everyone carries that hidden masterpiece, not knowing who they are and just trying on the surface to become someone.
Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it. Existence has created you; you cannot be improved.

"Someday, in the future, when psychology really comes of age, whenever somebody goes mad from the head we will help that person to move towards the heart— because an opportunity opens in that moment. The breakdown can become a breakthrough. The old structure is gone, now the person is no longer in the clutches of reason. The person is free for a moment. Modern psychology tries to go on adjusting the person back to the old structure. All modern efforts are adjustive: how to make the person normal again. The real psychology will do something else. The real psychology will use this opportunity … because the old mind has disappeared, there is a gap. Use this interval and lead the person toward another mind— that is, the heart. Lead the person toward another center of being. When one mind has failed, you are in a neutral state. Just now you are again as if you are just born. Use this opportunity and lead the energy away from the old rotten structure, which is falling. Leave the ruin. Move into the heart. Forget reason and let love be your center, your target. Each breakdown can become a breakthrough, and each possibility for the failure of the head can become a success for the heart— the failure of the head can become a success for the heart." ~Osho~

"Have you noticed? Sometimes something suddenly wakes you up when you were deeply asleep. At five A.M. you were sound asleep, at the hour of deepest sleep, and something suddenly awakens you. Some noise, some firecracker goes off in the street, a car crashes into your door, some noise that immediately wakes you up. Instantly— you jump immediately from sleep to wakefulness. You come like an arrow from the depths of sleep. Usually when we come out of deep sleep we come very slowly. First deep sleep drops away, then dreams gradually start floating, then we remain in dreams for a while. But if something happens suddenly, you come like an arrow from the depths straight to awakening. Your eyes open and you wonder: Where am I? Who am I? For a moment nothing is clear." ~ Osho

It is only a feminine woman who can give the gifts that you, as a masculine man, need. Along with these gifts, however, come the relative chaos and emotional weather storms that most men dread. Realize these are aspects of the same energy that turns you on. In fact, you can learn to be turned on by her dance of anger as much as by her slinky purr. This capacity is one of your gifts to her. You can learn to stand free and strong no matter what emotion she displays. You won’t leave, turn away, or dissociate in disgust. You can meet her enormous energy and stand full, loving her through the storm, embracing her complete feminine power, dark and light. You will only be happy in intimacy if you choose a woman who is your sexual reciprocal as a partner. And you will only be able to survive such an intimacy if her dark and light sides are equally embraceable to you. It takes time to develop such skill and strength, but in doing so you learn to provide your woman, as well as the world, with a man whose gifts are uncompromised by fear of feminine power and chaos.

Devotion is a way of merging and melting into existence. It is not a pilgrimage; it is simply losing all the boundaries that divide you from existence - it is a love affair. Love is a merger with an individual, a deep intimacy of two hearts - so deep that the two hearts start dancing in the same harmony. Although the hearts are two, the harmony is one, the music is one, the dance is one. What love is between individuals, devotion is between one individual and the whole existence. You dance in the waves of the ocean, you dance in the dancing trees in the sun, you dance with the stars. Your heart responds to the fragrance of the flowers, to the song of the birds, to the silences of the night.

Devotion is the death of the personality. That which is mortal in you, you drop of your own accord; only the immortal remains, the eternal remains, the deathless remains. And naturally the deathless cannot be separate from existence - which is deathless, which is always ongoing, knows no beginning, no end. Devotion is the highest form of love. ~Osho~

The seed is never in danger, remember. What danger can there be for the seed? It is absolutely protected. But the plant is always in danger, the plant is very soft. The seed is like a stone, hard, hidden behind a hard crust. But the plant has to pass through a thousand and one hazards. And not all plants are going to attain to the height where they can bloom into flowers, a thousand and one flowers ... Very few human beings attain to the second stage, and very few of those who attain the second stage attain the third, the stage of the flower. Why can't they attain the third stage, the stage of the flower? Because of greed, because of miserliness, they are not ready to share ... because of a state of unlovingness. Courage is needed to become a plant, and love is needed to become a flower. A flower means the tree is opening up its soul, pouring its being into existence. Don't remain a seed. Gather courage - courage to drop the ego, courage to drop the securities, courage to drop the safeties, courage to be vulnerable. ~OSHO~
