  • OSHO International Foundation presents

  • Osho: Behave as if you are the first here

  • My whole

  • vision is

  • of a human being,

  • totally alive, intensely alive,

  • enjoying everything that life makes available,

  • and enjoying it

  • with grace, with gratitude

  • towards existence.

  • And that's what loving yourself means.

  • It means that

  • you have thrown

  • all the garbage of

  • religious rejection, repression.

  • You have dropped all the ideals

  • that they have given to you;

  • you

  • are now

  • standing on your own

  • as if you are

  • Adam and Eve.

  • No priest has been there before,

  • no religion has been there before;

  • you are uncorrupted,

  • unspoiled,

  • clean.

  • Start like Adam and Eve --

  • just think of the idea!

  • Why bother about the past?

  • Forget about it.

  • You are the first man.

  • Start living as if

  • you don't know how to live.

  • Nobody is there to teach you,

  • no guidelines exist.

  • No books exist

  • which say

  • how to do this, how to do that.

  • You are just left alone on an island.

  • Everything is available:

  • Intelligence is within you,

  • instinct is within you,

  • intellect is within you,

  • intuition is within you.

  • Now start moving.

  • Yes,

  • perhaps you may commit a few mistakes --

  • there is no wrong in it,

  • that's how one learns.

  • Perhaps a few times you may fall --

  • nothing to be worried about.

  • You can get up again;

  • and

  • next time you will be walking more carefully,

  • more alert,

  • so you have gained something out of that fall.

  • Out of each mistake,

  • each error,

  • you are constantly gaining something.

  • Errors are valuable.

  • Mistakes are immensely

  • necessary.

  • If you are somehow

  • protected from committing mistakes and errors,

  • you will never grow,

  • you will never learn a thing,

  • you will never mature.

  • So behave as if you are the first here.

  • The whole world is available to you to explore.

  • And in exploring it

  • you will be surprised

  • that simultaneously

  • your inner world is being explored too,

  • because as you explore the outer world

  • your insight becomes deeper,

  • your intelligence becomes sharper,

  • your awareness becomes keener.

  • And a perfectly fulfilled man is one

  • who explores both the outer and the inner

  • and who, at the moment of death,

  • can have a smile on his face:

  • that he lived totally,

  • he is happy that he lived totally,

  • that he burned

  • his life's candle from both ends together.

  • When you can burn your candle from both ends together,

  • why be miserly and burn just one end?

  • When you can enjoy double the light

  • and two flames together,

  • enjoy it --

  • because enjoyment is not simply enjoyment.

  • Every joy

  • is growth

  • and brings you closer to blissfulness,

  • to ecstasy.

  • And unless you have attained

  • to a state of ecstasy

  • where you can say,

  • "I have arrived,

  • I am fulfilled....

  • The purpose of existence in me

  • is completed.

  • If now death comes, it is welcome.

  • Now that is the only thing

  • that I don't know."

  • A man who can say,

  • "Death is now the only thing that I don't know --

  • life I have known,"

  • will be enthusiastic about death,

  • will be eager to meet it,

  • would like to have a plunge into it.

  • And this is the paradox of life:

  • One who is ready to die, never dies.

  • One who is himself ready to jump into death,

  • for him death disappears.

  • Death is only for cowards.

  • Death is only for those who have not lived,

  • who have really remained dead their whole lives.

  • Death is not for the living.

  • The more alive you are,

  • the farther away is death.

  • If you are totally living, there is no death:

  • Death exists not.

  • Then there is only life, life eternal.
