WHEN I AM GONE, WHERE CAN I GO? I WILL BE HERE... ~OSHO~
The fruit falls on the ground when it is ripe. ONE DAY, YOU WILL LEAVE US, and it will be impossible to have another Master in your place. HOW CAN ANYBODY ELSE BE THE SUBSTITUTE FOR THE MASTER OF MASTERS? Osho, when you leave the physical body, will your meditation techniques help our inner growth as they do now?
MY APPROACH TO YOUR GROWTH is basically to make you independent of me. Any kind of dependence is a slavery, and the spiritual dependence is the worst slavery of all.
I have been making every effort to make you aware of your individuality, your freedom, your absolute capacity to grow without any help from anybody. YOUR GROWTH IS SOMETHING INTRINSIC TO YOUR BEING, it does not come from outside. It is not an imposition, it is an unfolding.
ALL THE MEDITATION TECHNIQUES that I have given to you are not dependent on me -- my presence or absence will not make any difference -- THEY ARE DEPENDENT ON YOU! It is not my presence, but your presence that is needed for them to work. IT IS NOT MY BEING HERE BUT YOUR BEING HERE, your being in the present, your being alert and aware that is going to help.
SO REMEMBER: WHEN I AM GONE, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LOSE ANYTHING. Perhaps you may gain something of which you are absolutely unaware.
Right now I am available to you only embodied, imprisoned in a certain shape and form. WHEN I AM GONE, WHERE CAN I GO? I will be here in the winds, in the oceans. And if you have loved me, if you have trusted me, YOU WILL FEEL ME IN THOUSAND AND ONE WAYS. In your silent moments suddenly you will feel my presence.
ONCE I AM UNEMBODIED, MY CONSCIOUSNESS IS UNIVERSAL. Right now you have to come to me. Then, you not need to seek and search for me. Wherever you are... your thirst, your love... and you will find me in your very heart, in your very heartbeat.
