“If you engage in any work with courage there is no barrier to its success.” In work is Love Made Visible Osho is talking about his work: its importance and value, the inner qualities that those interested in helping it succeed need to understanding and to develop and its day to day organization. These talks were giving after he had left his university post in order to share his vision for humanity with as many people as possible, and are addressed to the people who recently started working with him.
Osho discusses the profound personal issues that work brigs up for everyone around hierarchy, power, responsibility, and the art of relating, demonstrating at the same time a supreme respect for each person’s individuality. Dignity and freedom. He covers every practicalities of financial accounting to the importance to the importance of using the most up-to-date media available. Underpinning all of this understanding that unless humanity is prepared to walk though the fire of awareness and allow itself to become moment –by- moment tool for self transformation, no one will ever derive any real benefit from working and no work will ultimately succeed.
Osho outline his blueprint for a new “anarchic institution” and says: “I do not intend to bind people by laws, rules or principles, because I am fighting this very thing.” Instead, his proposal is rooted in “a gathering of friends,” as it prepares the ground for a spiritual revolution- a total transformation for the individual and for the whole of society.
Osho inspires millions of people worldwide in their individual search for joy, fulfillment, depth, and silence. All his talks address the question of how we can live each moment of our daily lives in awareness, relaxation and totality.
“We will make each and every effort to make life more beautiful, more loving. We are not against this earth. We are for the transformation of this earth.”
Osho defies categorization. His thousands of talks cover everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. Osho’s books are not written but are transcribed from audio and video recordings of his extemporaneous talks to international audiences. As he puts it, “So remember: whatever I am saying is not just for you… I am talking also for the future generations.”
Osho has been described by The Sunday Times in London as one of the”1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by American author Tone Robbins as ‘the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ.” Sunday Mid-Day (India) has selected Osho as one of ten people- along with Gandhi, Nehru and Buddha-who have changed the destiny of India.
About his own work Osho has said that he is helping to create the conditions for the birth of a new kind of human being. He often characterizes this new human being as “Zorba the Buddha” – capable both of enjoying the earthy pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama the Buddha.
Running like a thread through all aspects of Osho’s talks and meditations is a vision that encompasses both the timeless wisdom of all ages past and the highest of todays (and tomorrow’s) science and technology.
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. His unique Osho Active Meditations are designed to first release the accumulated stresses of body and mind, so that it is then easier to take an experience of stillness and thought-free relaxation into daily life.
All religions are against life. They say, “Renounce life.” and life includes work, life includes love, and life includes everything. “Renounce life, because of life is going to be an entry into paradise after your death. “But it is always after death.
All the religious people and the politicians are angry with me for the simple reason that I am telling people that life is herenow - not after death; don’t wait. And life is in love, life is in being creative, life is in understanding your innermost being. Because only they can you become a constantly overflowing source of beauty, love and joy.
Who cares about life after death? Life is before death, and if you can live totally there is no death for you. This is the experience of all those who have entered into silence. They have with greatest miracle: that their innermost core, their consciousness, is eternal. Life can take away the clothes, the bodies, but life cannot destroy you. But only the creator-and a creator out of love- transcend death.
As Kahlil Gibran says:
Work is love made visible.
And if you cannot work love but only with
distaste, it is better that you should leave your
Work and sit at the gate of the temple and take
alms of those who work with joy.
If you cannot be a creator, if you cannot love work, if you cannot love life, then the only possibility for you is just to be a begger. The lover is an emperor, the creator is an emperor – without invading the whole world. He has invaded the whole universe out of sheer, loving creativity.
