Now this Osho man here, he’s GOTTA be kidding me! This is the second quote by this guy which seriously makes me wonder… Seems like a very troubled soul! Never gonna get how gazillions of people can indulge into this kind of philosophy. So here’s what he said that reminded me how his other quote had ticked me off.
And actually, on the contrary, the capacity to be alone and one enjoying his company all alone, all by himself… Wouldn’t that completely reflect a selfish trait? Which can’t be a positive thing, or can it? Unless one is running away in the other direction if he sees the opposite one leading towards Dajjal, well I’m sure that kind of selfishness would be globally acceptable amongst the Muslims at least 🙂 And logically, the other part would be incorrect. As per this Osho dude, “only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person”; If people are by themselves and *tick tick* ALONE, they would surely want and desire to be loved, well probably. And how would being alone increase one’s capacity of the ability to share? It can certainly make one stupid, and in their last days, sadly, leave them wondering how beautiful life could have been had they been a part of someone else’s life and involved others in their own; ’cause the truth in fact is that “Sharing is Caring”. If one is alone, he probably would develop a habit of the kind of privacy for his possessions that would annoy him if he is ever expected to share. So, excuse me but *ehem ehem* I gotta lmao. And OH MY DEAR GOD! How can one, who is capable of being alone go deeper into the soul of another? Sorry Osho man! That did not really sink in. And this thing where he associates love with possession is a completely different subject…
Love is not about possession. Those who love, value people, and not things. Things can be possessed. Not love. An infant is dependent on the 2 people who love him the most, and with time as the child grows, the parents are dependent on their offspring’s love and support. That dependency, has other names. It comprises of not just love and support, but also infinite respect, trust, a bond like no other, compassion and several other emotions that build the essence of the relationship in its entirety. A child and his parents is just one example… there are several more. The dependency such relations have on one another is far from material possessions and their importance.
Going forward, to me, love being an addiction seems more like a Psychotic disorder which reminds of me some creatures who were obsessed with the idea that every person they met were either totally into them or had a problem with them, so yeah, they were basically too full of themselves. Sorry for sounding mean, but that’s the truth. The latter part of this quote is utterly disturbing for me to elaborate upon, so I shall instead go now and happily indulge into a much sane, n absolutely fictitious adaptation of a Mughal romantic novel by Indu Sundaresan.,
By the way, I have nothing against Osho. Some of his reads are actually quite interesting and thought provoking. This is solely my personal opinion upon a couple of quotes by him. Adieu 🙂
