Darshan 26 March 1978
Krishna is one of the names of god. And one has to remember constantly that at the innermost core of our being god abides, lives, that we are shrines of god, that we live only because we live in god. We may not be aware of it - we are not - but life is not possible without god. It is said that he breathed into Adam; that is simply symbolic. He is constantly breathing into you too, because without him breath will not come; he is your breath. He circulates in your blood, without him there would be no circulation. He beats in your heart, he is your beat and he is conscious in you. He is the searcher and he is the sought.
Always remember that ultimately we are gods, howsoever deep we may have fallen in sleep. But that is only sleep. By the morning when we wake, we will know that we have always been gods, even when we were dreaming of a thousand other things.
[A couple of sannyasins who have been running a centre in Goa are going West.]
Spread my word wherever you go. Now this is the work: every sannyasin has to shout from the housetops, mm? Don't be shy about it; that time is over: now take initiative. And don't miss any opportunity.
Whenever you find a receptive heart, put a small seed into it. One never knows: sooner or later the man will be coming. Just a small seed triggers a long process and sometimes small things change the whole of life.
So this is good - travel and help a few people. And there are millions of people who are in need, in great need. They are thirsty but they don't know what to do and they don't know where to go.
Because of this thirst and there being no possibility of quenching it, great pathology is arising in the world; people are becoming insane. This insanity that is happening now is not an ordinary insanity.
This is a very spiritual phenomenon. People want to be more sane than ordinary sanity allows but they don't know how to be more sane, how to be more healthy and whole.
Not knowing how to be more sane, they get into difficulties. And they cannot adjust to the ordinary sanity. Millions of people around the world are ready to become more sane than humanity allows, and they are groping in darkness. So wherever you are, make it a point to help people....
[The Tao group is present. One participant describes experiencing being back in the womb and feeling misshapen and being afraid.]
Very good. It has been beautiful. Yes, it is frightening but it is beautiful.
Nothing to worry about. No, it has been a beautiful experience. And you were not deformed or anything, but a foetus of six weeks looks deformed.
It has been a beautiful experience... a very rare experience. It will come a few times and you will go even deeper into it. One day you will see the first moment of conception, and only when you have seen that will this experience disappear. That moment is of great joy; it brings so much understanding and light into one's life. You are almost in a process of being reborn. You will be completely new, so just allow it, whenever it happens.
[Osho suggests more groups and continues:]
Then remind me again about how things are, mm? I would like you to go deeper into it. You can even go beyond this life to your past life. You are just on the boundary line. Feel happy!
