Osho God is the creativity, so if you really want to enter into the world of God you will have to learn the ways of creativity - and that has disappeared. One has to be meditative but full of feeling, overflowing with love. Immediately the fight starts: the struggle with the soil, with the stones, with the rocks. Your very self-consciousness indicates that you have not come home yet. Yielding to a power not of your own, surrendering to a power that is beyond you, is creativity. It is allowing something to happen through you.
His work in Osho Commune included five years in the Academy of Healing Arts as a Color puncture clinical color therapy therapist and trainer, with sessions and trainings in centers around the world, followed by three years as director of the Faculty of Creative Arts in the Osho Multiversity, where he coordinated the art, dance, and theater, as well as visual arts programs. Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense. If you can find such a master you are blessed. Giving not nor taking, put your mind at rest. That is compassion; compassion is the highest phenomenon.
When we find no support among others for our deeply felt truths, we can either feel isolated and bitter, or celebrate the fact that our vision is strong enough even to survive the powerful human need for the approval of family, friends or colleagues. But still, deep down there is not actor, no doer, there is only silence. It is not for the comfort of the patient, it is a strategy. And then there is a rest period, long rest period to recoup, to regain the energy that you have given to the child—to regain yourself again so that something can be born out of you. Money is a tremendous invention.
I am not in your hands! Only if we accept this fact can we then really celebrate it for what it is--welcome its happening, and say good-bye with gratitude when it's not. Then newer kinds of people will be coming into existence. The work should be important, a joy in itself. The real man of discipline never accumulates; each moment he dies to whatsoever he has come to know and again becomes ignorant. Osho says that nirvana means to blow out the flame of the candle and then there lies the silent darkness. Live the moment in the context of the moment, and your response will be total. The buddha nature is not something far away--your very consciousness is buddha nature.
All opposites play a part in this vast circular pattern. There is a sense of grace surrounding him, as if he is at home with himself and with what life has brought. So when an artist becomes respectable he becomes dead. Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, if your act of doing is not purely economical, then it is creative. Act unmotivated, just an overflow of your energy.
Only dead people are consistent. Osho In the moment of deep creativity you disappear, God again starts functioning. Life has to be multidimensional, then only is there meaning. That is the meaning of being healthy. He himself has to pass through many deaths, so whatsoever he produces is always mortal.
Or even just listening, not bothering whether it is true or not. Computers can do it—they are already doing it, and doing it in a far more efficient way that you can hope from man. Loneliness is absence of the other. Mozart started playing beautiful music at the age of eight. The ego is nothing but all the tensions that you have created around yourself. My effort is to destroy the collective mind and to make each individual free to be himself or herself. Osho art is also known as enlightened art.
You will be continuously receiving more and more blessings; your life will be a life of benediction. The divine has used it for creation. And we have called the ultimate goal Shunya. Every creative soul—it does not matter what he creates—should be respected and honored. And why depend on others? You have to give color and music and poetry, you have to be creative. You are at your creative best when you do things because you find joy in doing it, because it has an intrinsic value to you.
Whenever you try to perform something, you are seeking food for the ego. Then your consciousness starts unfolding in all ten directions, but the road has been one. But each person can be creative. And the moment you start learning, another factor follows inevitably: whatsoever you have learned has to be dropped continuously, otherwise it will become knowledge and knowledge will prevent further learning. What you see as humanity is only a very hocus-pocus phenomenon. Live the moment in the context of the moment, and your response will be total.
Just go on listening with no interpretation, with no activity on your part. The stars, the rocks, the trees, the flowers, fish and birds--all are our brothers and sisters in this dance of life. And creativity is from the creator, creativity is not of you or from you. In any economic system you will remain miserable, in any world you will remain miserable—if you remain you. Intelligence needs that you are always going into the unknown, into the unchartered sea. To transform breakdowns into breakthroughs is the whole function of a master. Or if you see a dancer dancing, he is all action.
