And no state, no church and no vested interest has ever wanted people to have strong souls, because a person with spiritual energy is bound to be rebellious.

Love makes you rebellious, revolutionary. Love gives you wings to soar high. Love gives you insight into things, so that nobody can deceive you, exploit you, oppress you. And the priests and the politicians survive only on your blood. And the priests and the politicians survive only on your blood -- they survive only on exploitation. They are parasites, all the priests and all the politicians.

To make you spiritually weak they have found a sure method, one hundred percent guaranteed, and that is to teach you not to love yourself -- because if a man cannot love himself he cannot love anybody else either. The teaching is very tricky. They say: Love others -- because they know if you cannot love yourself you cannot love at all. But they go on saying: Love others, love humanity, love God, love nature, love your wife, your husband, your children and your parents, but don't love yourself, because to love oneself is selfish according to them.奥修(OSHO)中文社区(Meditation,Love)1 Q# R8 s+ ~0 O4 H: a

They say: If you love yourself you will become an egoist, if you love yourself you will become narcissistic. It is not true. A man who loves himself finds that there is no ego in him. It is in loving others without loving yourself, in trying to love others that the ego arises.

Love knows nothing of duty. Duty is a burden, a formality. Love is a joy, a sharing; love is informal. The lover never feels that he has done enough; the lover always feels that more was possible. The lover never feels, "have obliged the other." On the contrary, he feels, "Because my love has been received, I am obliged. The other has obliged me by receiving my gift, by not rejecting it." The man of duty thinks, "I am higher, spiritual, extraordinary. Look how I serve people!"Osho,奥修,静心,爱的艺术,Meditation' \- S( h0 V) Y2 y. @% ]/ X4 l  F4 j

If you live love, you have to share it. You cannot go on loving yourself forever because one thing will become absolutely clear to you: that if loving one person, yourself, is so tremendously ecstatic and beautiful, how much more ecstasy is waiting for you if you start sharing your love with many many people!

Slowly the ripples start reaching farther and farther. You love other people; then you start loving animals, birds, trees, rocks. You can fill the whole universe with your love. A single person is enough to fill the whole universe with love, just as a single pebble can fill the whole lake with ripples -- a small pebble.

Man has to become a god. Unless man becomes a god there is going to be no fulfillment, no contentment. But how can you become a god? Your priests say that you are a sinner. Your priests say that you are doomed, that you are bound to go to hell. And they make you very much afraid of loving yourself.Osho,奥修,静心,爱的艺术,Meditation; N* Q1 a. w* @

In fact, they will find them and they will magnify them, they will make them as big as possible. That seems to be the only saving device; somehow, to save face, you have to do it. That's why there is so much criticism and such a lack of love.

A person who loves himself can easily become meditative, because meditation means being with yourself. If you hate yourself -- as you do, as you have been told to do, and you have been following it religiously -- if you hate yourself, how can you be with yourself? And meditation is nothing but enjoying your beautiful aloneness and celebrating yourself. That’s what meditation is all about. Meditation is not a relationship. The other is not needed at all; one is enough unto oneself. One is bathed in one's own glory, bathed in one's own light. One is simply joyous because one is alive, because one is.

But only a man who loves himself can meditate; otherwise you are always escaping from yourself, avoiding yourself. Who wants to look at an ugly face and who wants to penetrate an ugly being? Who wants to go deep into one's own mud, into one’s own darkness? Who wants to enter the hell that they think they are? You want to keep this whole thing covered up with beautiful flowers and you want always to escape from yourself.Osho,奥修,静心,爱的艺术,Meditation  {3 A8 n  @4 ~& }8 N4 N

By "love" is meant: accept it as it is, don't try to repress. We repress only when we hate something, we repress only when we are against something. Don't repress, because if you repress how are you going to watch? We cannot look the enemy eye to eye; we can look only in the eyes of our beloved.

A moment finally comes when you can watch even your sleep. That is the ultimate in watching. The body goes to sleep and there is still a watcher awake, silently watching the body fast asleep. That is the ultimate in watching. Right now just the opposite is the case: your BODY is awake but you are asleep. Then YOU will be awake and your body will be asleep. The body needs rest but your consciousness needs no sleep. Your consciousness IS consciousness; it is alertness, that is its very nature.

爱是灵魂的滋养。就象食物对身体一样,爱是灵魂的食物。没有食物身体是虚弱的,没有爱灵魂是虚弱的。但是没有哪个国家,哪个教堂,或是哪个特权阶级(vested interest)希望人们有强大的灵魂,因为一个有精神力量的人必然是叛逆的(rebellious)。
* a5 j7 W; Q7 _" s. @5 ROsho,奥修,静心,爱的艺术,Meditation爱让你叛逆,革新。爱给你翅膀,让你飞得更高。爱让你洞察事物,于是没人能欺骗你,利用(exploit,利用、剥削)你,压制你。而那些牧师和政治家就是靠吸你的血,靠剥削你才活下来的。他们是寄生虫,所有的牧师和政治家都是。aoxiu.com  {% d- O/ ~/ b0 c) X  g' Z+ S
为了使你在精神上脆弱,他们找到了一个管用的方法,一个能确保百分之百好用的方法,而那就是教你不爱你自己,因为如果一个人不能爱他自己,他将不能爱任何其他人。这个方法非常的狡猾。他们说:爱他人,因为他们知道如果你不能爱自己,你根本就不可能爱。但是他们继续说:爱他人,爱人类,爱上帝,爱大自然,爱你的妻子,爱你的丈夫,你的孩子和你的父母,但是不要爱你自己,因为按他们的说法,爱自己是自私的。

8 u& C0 _, V1 f0 e# b奥修(OSHO)中文社区(Meditation,Love)爱不知道什么责任。责任是一种负担,一种形式。爱是快乐,是一种分享;爱是不拘于形式的(informal)。在爱的人从来不会觉得他已经做得够了;在爱的人总是觉得他还能做得更多。在爱的人从来不觉得他对另一个人有恩。相反,他觉得感激,因为我的爱被接纳了,我很感激。我要感谢另一个人,因为他接受了我的礼物,没有拒绝我。而一个有责任的人这么想,我更高尚,更有神性,更超凡。看我是怎么帮助人们的!Osho/ c0 i1 j# s% h' m" n
一个爱他自己的人尊重他自己,而一个爱他自己并尊重他自己的人也尊重其他人,因为他知道,其他人和我是一样的。就象我享受爱,享受尊重和自尊一样,其他人也如此。他会知道,我们没有不同;就那根本的而言,我们是一体的。我们遵循同一个规律(law,法则,规律): Es dhammo sanantano。

人必须变成神。除非人变成神,否则将不会有达成,不会有满足。但是你怎么变成神呢?你的神甫说你是个罪人。你的神甫说你的命运已经注定了,那就是你注定要下地狱。而且他们让你非常的害怕去爱自己。Osho8 w# |) k) x* P& {$ c
那就是为什么人们是这么会找毛病。他们找自己的毛病,他们怎么可能不去在别人身上找同样的毛病呢?事实上,他们会找到它们并将其放大,尽可能的大。那好象是唯一的挽救机制;某种角度而言,为了挽救面子,你不得不这么做(That seems to be the only saving device; somehow, to save face, you have to do it)。这就是为什么有这么多的批评,这么的缺乏爱。Osho,奥修,静心,爱的艺术,Meditation8 E' W2 z1 a# C- c  `! y

让爱的能量包围你自己。爱你的身体,爱你的头脑。爱你的整个身体的运做,你整个生命(love your whole mechanism, your whole organism)。爱意味着:按它本来的样子接受它,不要压抑它。只有当我们讨厌什么东西的时候我们才压抑,只有当我们抵制什么东西的时候我们才压抑。不要压抑,因为如果你压制,你怎么能观照呢?我们不能正视敌人的眼睛:我们只能正视我们爱人的眼睛。如果你不是你自己的爱人,你将不能够正视你自己,不能够看你自己的脸,看你真实的自己。

最后,一个时刻会来临,当你在睡觉时也能保持观照。那是观照的最高点(ultimate)。身体睡了,而那个观照者却醒着,静静地看着身体入睡。那是观照的最高点。而现在却是相反的:你的身体是醒着的,而你却是睡着的。然后当你醒着,你的身体却睡着了。身体需要休息,但是你的觉知不需要睡觉。你的意识是觉知;它是警觉,那是它的本质。
