Life is a Soap Bubble (100 Ways to Look at Life)
Life is a Soap Bubble (100 Ways to Look at Life)
by Osho
Description
About the book

“Don’t stop at thinking. Move and do something. It is more valuable to take even a single step than to just think about walking a thousand miles, because that one step at least takes you somewhere.”

Osho inspires millions of people worldwide in their individual search for meditation and transformation amidst the everyday challenges of contemporary life. His proposal that we celebrate the whole of our humanity both our inner and outer worlds encompasses both the timeless wisdom of the East and the highest potential of Western science and technology. The American novelist Tom Robbins has called him “the most dangerous man since Jesus Christ.”

If you have come to the point where you feel there must be something more to life and are ready to explore other dimensions of your being, this collection of thought will provide an essential road map.

The one hundred short passages in this book are full of diverse, pertinent gems. They will touch your heart and your being. They will inspire your life, showing you how to turn each and every moment into bliss.

About the Author
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 hooks are not written hut 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 Torn 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 potential of today’s (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.

Preface

I would like you to remember: Live, and try to know what life is. Don’t be bothered about death, heaven and hell, and this goddamned God. Simply remain with the life that is dancing in you, breathing in you, alive in you. You have to come closer to yourself to know it. Perhaps you are standing too far away from yourself; your concerns have taken you far away. You have to come back home.

So remember that while you are alive it is so precious — don’t miss a single moment. Squeeze the whole juice of it, and that juice will give you the taste of the existential, and that will be a revelation of all that is hidden from you and will remain hidden from you.

Respect life, revere life. There is nothing more holy than life, nothing more divine than life. And life does not consist of big things. Those religious fools have been telling you, “Do big things,” and life consists of small things. The strategy is clear. They tell you, “Do big things, something great, something that your name will be remembered for afterward. Do something great.” And of course it appeals to the ego. The ego is the agent of the priest. All the churches and all the synagogues and all the temples have only one agent, and that is the ego. They don’t use different agencies; there are no other agencies. There is only one agency and that is the ego do something great, something big. I want to tell you, there is nothing big, nothing great. Life consists of very small things. So if you become interested in so-called big things, you will be missing life.

Life consists of sipping a cup of tea, of gossiping with a friend; going for a morning walk, not going anywhere in particular, just for a walk, no goal, no end, from any point you can turn back; cooking food for someone you love; cooking food for yourself because you love your body too; washing your clothes, cleaning the floor, watering the garden. These small things, very small things saying hello to a stranger which was not needed at all because there was no question of any business with the stranger.

The man the who can say hello to a stranger can also say hello to a flower, can also say hello to the tree can sing a song to the birds. They sing every day and you have not bothered at all that someday you should return the call just small things very small things.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
