There is a tremendously beautiful saying of Jesus. I am never tired of quoting it again and again. Jesus says: “Those who have, more shall be given to them. And those who don’t have, even that which they have will be taken away from them”.
A strange statement to make – very strange. Because our ordinary mathematics, arithmetic, socialism, communism, etcetera will say that: Give to those who don’t have. But Jesus says: Those who have, more shall be given to them; and those who don’t have, even that which they have shall be taken away from them. This is the fundamental law. If you are happy, more happiness comes to you. If you are joyous, you attract more joyousness. Like attracts like. If you are miserable, more misery starts moving towards you.
YOU CREATE your world. Don’t make anybody else responsible for it – it is always you who are responsible.

“Always remember, whatsoever I say to you, you can take it in two ways. You can simply take it on my authority, ‘Because I say so, it must be true’ — then you will suffer, then you will not grow. Whatsoever I say, listen to it, try to understand it, implement it in your life, see how it works, and then come to your own conclusions. They may be the same, they may not be. They can never be exactly the same because you have a different personality, a unique being. Whatsoever I am saying is my own. It is bound to be in deep ways rooted in me. You may come to similar conclusions, but they cannot be exactly the same. So my conclusions should not be made your conclusions. You should try to understand me, you should try to learn, but you should not collect knowledge from me, you should not collect conclusions from me. Then your mind-body will grow.”
An authentically religious man is an individual. He is alone, and in his aloneness there is great beauty, great splendor. I teach you that aloneness. I teach you the beauty, and the grandeur, and the fragrance of aloneness. In your aloneness you will reach to the heights of Everest. In your aloneness you will be able to touch the farthest star. In your aloneness you will blossom to your total potential. Never become a believer, never become a follower, never become a part of any organization, never become a part of any religion, never become a part of any nation. Remain authentically true to yourself.”
“Just look at people. And each person is a fiction, and each person carries so many stories in his heart. Love people, search in their souls, and you will not need to go to the movies and you will not need to read novels. Each person contains many novels and many movies, but we don’t listen to people. We don’t see people face to face, we don’t hold their hands, we don’t allow them to open their hearts.
For the first time humanity has become very closed. Each person is living a windowless life, completely encapsulated. Open up, throw your doors and windows open. Let wind and rain and sun come in. Let people enter into you and you enter into people’s lives. That is the only way to become aware of the tremendous mystery of life. And to be aware of the mystery of life is to be aware of godliness.” ~ Osho
