Kurzbeschreibung

9. Juni 2009
In this collection of reflections on three things that make us human - our longing to know the meaning of life, our capacity for love, and our ability to laugh - Osho goes far beyond the usual chicken-soup fare. "Life, Love, Laughter" establishes a new genre of reflective and inspirational text stripped of all platitudes and cliches, absolutely in tune with the realities of the twenty-first century. In this artful collection, Osho mixes entertainment and inspiration, ancient Zen stories and contemporary jokes - and helps us to find love, laughter, and ultimately, happiness. "Life, Love, Laughter" includes an original talk by Osho on DVD. This visual component enables the reader to experience the direct wisdom and humor of Osho straight from the source.

Chapter One

No beginning, no end
 

People ask me, "Why is this life so mysterious?" How am I supposed to know? It is so! It is simply a fact, I am not talkingabout theories. I’m not saying that it is my theory that life is mysterious— then you could ask why. It is simply so.The trees are green. You ask why. The trees are green because they are green. There is no question of why.

 

If you can ask why and the question can be answered, then life will not be a mystery. If the why can be answered, then life cannot be a mystery. Life is a mystery because no "why" is relevant.

 

I have heard:

 

Mulla Nasruddin was saying to one of his disciples that life is like a woman. I

 

was surprised, so I listened attentively to what he was saying.

 

He was saying, "The man who says he understands women is bragging. The man who thinks he understands them is gullible. The man who pretends to understand them is ambiguous. The man who wants to understand them is wistful. On the other hand, the man who does not say he understands them, does not think he understands them, does not pretend to understand them, does not even want to understand them—he understands them!"

 

And that’s how life is also. Life is a woman. Try to understand life and you will become a mess. Forget all about understanding. Just live it and you will understand it. The understanding is not going to be intellectual, theoretical; the understanding is going to be total. The understanding is not going to be verbal; it is going to be nonverbal. That is the meaning when we say life is a mystery. It can be lived but it cannot be solved.

 

You can know what it is, but you cannot say what it is. That is the meaning of mystery. When we say that life is a mystery, we are saying that life is not a problem. A problem can be solved. A mystery is that which cannot be solved. Insolubility is unbuilt. And it is good that life cannot be solved, otherwise what would you do then? Just think of it. If life is not a mystery and somebody comes and explains it to you— then what will you do? There will be nothing left except to commit suicide. Even that will look meaningless.

 

Life is a mystery; the more you know it, the more beautiful it is. A moment comes when suddenly you start living it, you start flowing with it. An orgasmic relationship evolves between you and life, but you cannot figure out what it is. That’s the beauty of it, that’s its infinite depth.

 

And, yes, there is no beginning and no end. How can there be any beginning to life and any end to life? Beginning will mean that something came out of nothing, and end will mean that something was there and went into nothing. That will be an even bigger mystery. When we say life has no beginning we simply say it has always been there. How can there be a beginning? Can you mark a line and say that at this moment life started, as Christian theologians used to say? Just four thousand years before Jesus Christ, they say, life started on a certain Monday. Of course, it must have been in the morning. But how can you call it Monday if there was no Sunday before it? And how can you call it morning if there was no night before it? Just think of it.

 

No, you cannot make a mark— that is foolish. It is not possible to mark a line because even to mark a line something is needed.

 

Something is needed to precede it, otherwise demarcation is not possible. You can mark a line if there are two things, but if there is only one thing how can you mark a line? The fence around your house is possible because there is a neighbor. If there is no neighbor, nothing beyond your fence, the fence cannot exist. Just think of it. If there is absolutely nothing beyond your fence, your fence will fall down into nothing. How can it exist? Something is needed beyond the fence to hold it.

 

If on a certain Monday life started, a Sunday is needed to precede it. Otherwise the Monday will fall, topple down and disappear. And in the same way there is no possibility of any end. Life is, life simply is. It has been, it will be. It is eternity.

 

And don’t start thinking about it. Otherwise you will be missing it, because all the time that you waste in thinking about it is simply waste. Use that time, use that space, use that energy to live it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen lach dich frei ! 10. April 2014
Von agusigida
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
eines morgens, so um vier uhr früh joggte osho während seiner collegezeit.
da fiel ihm ein, er könnte auch mal rückwärts laufen. gedacht - getan.
normalerweise war osho so früh noch allein auf den strassen indiens unterwegs.

wie der zufall es so wollte traf er an diesem tag einen mann im halbdunkel des morgens.
dazu muss gesagt werden dass viele inder glauben das geister rückwärts gehen bzw. laufen.

osho hatte im moment nicht daran gedacht. der milchmann den er traf erschrak so sehr
das er seine beiden milcheimer von sich warf und davonlief. ich denke er lief vorwärts.
und er lief sehr schnell. denn er dachte ja, er hätte einen geist gesehen.

osho kümmerte sich noch um die eimer. sie wurden aber nie abgeholt.

es ist eine freude die weisen worte oshos in englischer sprache zu lesen.
osho erzählt auch wieder köstliche witze, spricht über worte kabirs, erzählt
kleine zen - geschichten. also sehr abwechslunsreich zu lesen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing 10. Mai 2012
Von Sandra B. G. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm still reading this book - slowly. I should be reading this each night since I love this book. This is the first book by Osho that I have started to read. I guess the concepts in the book are a little hard for westerners to grasp (I can only really speak for myself) and may be that is why I don't read this every night.

The most that I remember of what I have read so far is that there is no self, no "doer" of anything and there is no "I". And the other part that I remember is to start living your life and you are "it". If you are new to eastern philosophy, you can read this book slowly. What I like about this book is how it makes me feel. It makes me feel wonderful - like I matter. But the message is conveyed in a way that may be strange for the person in the western world. So, if you are new to this, read a page a day.

I will for sure update my review once I am done with this book.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Osho is the greatest 30. August 2012
Von Lidija - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is wonderful - as every as I bought considering his speaches! If you are a true seeker of meaning of life, of purpose of our lives, if there is something in you that is throbbing and you can not figure it out what it is - Osho is the right address to find it. He (through books, speaches) helped me totally. One of the greatest, actually the greatest man of our time, in my oppinion!

I am going to quote Osho (this quotation is not from this book - I forgot where I took it from - but it is important: " First go deeper into your sea so you achieve calm crystallization, so you achieve the point where no disturbance ever reaches. Stand there. From there every change comes, every transformation comes. Once you are there you have become a master. Now whatsoever is unnecessary can be dropped, and can be dropped without any struggle and fight!"

Osho will help you to find yourself - which is the only task in everybodys life.

There are few quoatition from this book, which are very, very important:

page 67: "Birth happens, death happens - they are beyond you; you cannot do anything about them. Life has already happened. Death is going to happen. Between birth and death there is only one thing you can do something about, and that is LOVE. And because it depends on you, there is every possibility that you may miss it. That is the agony of love: you can miss it. If you dont do something, if you dont become alert, if you dont move towards it consciously, deliberately, you may miss it. There is every possibility that you may not unfold it - hence the fear, the trembling, the anguish, the anxiety: Will i be able to make it? Will I be able to move into love? Will I be able to floww into love?.....

page 66: "This love is waiting in you. There is no necessity; it can wait and you can die...."

page 73: "Unless you have known what love is, you have not known what melody is. It is the meeting, orgasmic meeting of death an life. Unless love is known, you have missed. You were born, you lived and you died - but you missed. You missed trumendeously...- you missed the interval in between. This interval is the highest pinnacle, the peak experience. To attain it, there are four steps to be remembered. The first step: be herenow - because love is possible only in the herenow......."......

This book gave me a new outlook on life. It was easy to read and worth reading more than once. It came with a dvd of osho giving a talk.

I finished reading this book today and found it very profound and paradigm shifting... I am not a trippy hippie but a nuts and bolts person with a science background and this book really resounded in me... particularly the part about love.
