“Do what your nature wants to do, do what your intrinsic qualities hanker to do. Don’t listen to the scriptures, listen to your own heart. That is the only scripture I prescribe. Listen very attentively, very consciously, and you will never be wrong. Listening to your own heart, you will never be divided. Listening to your own heart you will start moving in the right direction, without ever thinking of what is right and what is wrong.
“So, the whole art for a new humanity will consist of the secret of listening to the heart—consciously, alertly, attentively. And by all means, follow it, and go wherever it takes you. Yes, sometimes it will take you into dangers—but then remember, those dangers are needed to make you ripe. And sometimes it will take you astray—but remember again, those goings astray are part of growth. Many times, you will fall. Rise up again, because this is how one gathers strength—by falling and rising again. This is how one becomes integrated.
“Life is really a dance if you are original—and you are meant to be an original. And no two men are alike, so my way of life can never become your way of life.”
Osho is known for his revolutionary contribution to the science of inner transformation, with an approach to meditation that acknowledges the accelerated pace of contemporary life.
