THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY TO BE HERE WITH ME: IF YOU WANT TO SURRENDER... ~OSHO~
Yes, many times I MUST BE SOUNDING VERY EGOISTIC TO YOU. But don't be deceived -- because if you cling to the idea that I am egoistic, you will never be able to let go, to surrender. And then your ego will go on. Then there is no need to be here with me -- because then the whole point is lost, you are wasting your time.
There is ONLY ONE WAY TO BE HERE WITH ME: if you want to SURRENDER. Otherwise... go away. Find somebody somewhere else where you find it easy to surrender. Because unless you surrender, you will not come to know who you are. And without knowing yourself, you will not be able to know what has happened to a man whom we called enlightened. Only through your own experience will things become clear to you.
IT WILL BE EASY FOR YOU TO TOUCH MY FEET WHEN I AM GONE -- because then there is no surrender. You can go and touch the feet of a statue: the statue is dead; there is no surrender. When you touch the feet of an alive man -- alive just like you, in the body just like you -- then there comes the problem, the ego resists.
SO EITHER BELIEVE IN YOUR EGO OR BELIEVE IN ME. These are the only two alternatives. Up to now you have believed in your ego. What have you attained? I open another alternative for you. Try it!
Come Follow Yourself
