Authentic Being Through Meditation – Osho

Love. It is tragic but true that few people ever possess

their souls.

They possess everything except themselves.

And, then, naturally they just become a thing among their

other things.

And the possessor becomes the possessed.

“Nothing is more rare in any man,” says Emerson, “than

an act of his own”.

But this is just what can be expected.

Because, no one is ones own.

No one is oneself.

Most people are other people.

They are not living – but only acting roles given to them

by others.

Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions. And, their

faces are just masks.

They are faceless.

They have no authentic being at all.

There lives: a mimicry.

And, their passions: a quotation.

Break this vicious circle otherwise you will never BE.

Break this through meditation.

And, it cannot be broken by anything else.

Because through mind it cannot be broken.

And except meditation, all else is mind.

Mind is the prison.

Meditation: The Door.

And the only door.

-Acharya Rajneesh
