Osho Quotes on Meditation
“Meditation will give you a little glimpse, a little taste, that the truth is inside you.”
“If you can laugh totally, it will give you a moment of no-time, no-min. Mind lives logically with expectations, laughter is something that comes from the beyond.”

Remember, all great values are killed the moment you cling to them. And no great value can be imitated.
A truth cannot be read in scripture. truth has to be lived only in the innermost temple of your being.

The moment you become innocent, you have found a direct line to the divine. Your heartbeat synchronizes with the heartbeat of the universe.
Wherever you will look, you will only find human beings. Nowhere will you find humanity.
If you start listening to the body, listening to nature, listening to your inner being, you will be more and happier.
Any religion, any ideology, that is based only on belief, faith, is bound to cripple your intelligence.
Every error is an opportunity to learn. Just do not commit the same mistake again and again-that is stupidity.
Osho Quotes on Life
Life is not a means to some end somewhere in the future. Life is its own end, it’s own means. Life is all.
Respect your life. Out of that respect, you will start respecting life in others.
Life has to be a joy, a dance, a celebration. & when death comes, it has to b welcomed with silence, with serenity. This is a way to kill death itself.
Life is a mirror, it reflects your face. Be friendly, and all of life will reflect friendliness.
I am here to seduce you into a love of life; to help you to become a little more poetic; to help you die to the mundane and to the ordinary so that the extraordinary explodes in your life.
Life is not a tragedy, it is a comedy. To be alive means to have a sense of humor.
Take life easily, lovingly, playfully, non-seriously… Seriousness is a disease, the greatest disease of the soul.
Osho Quotes on Love
“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.”
Love is a state of being; it has nothing to do with anybody else. One is not in love, one is love.
Love can never possess. Love is giving freedom to the other. Love is an unconditional gift, it is not a bargain.
Love makes you wise but never knew. Knowledge makes you cunning and clever but never loving.
“Love, and the earth becomes a paradise again.”
Love is just like a breeze: it comes, but you should not close your doors to keep the breeze inside.
I have been teaching you nothing else except to be more alive, more loving, more singing, more dancing.
Trust is the bridge between you and existence. Trust is the purest form of love, and once trust is lost, love also becomes impossible.
