A glimpse of bliss is like the reflection of the moon on the water...But not the moon in the sky....Osho said that(Not a direct quote)

I read this and immediately thought you were awakened.

Have you read Osho's account of his awakening?

I think it is on his website.  I saw it some time ago.  It was very nice. 

He said it was like a conference meeting with God and Death.  I thought that was funny.  The thing I like about him is that he blends humor with teaching.  He seemed always to want to emphasize that this important work should not be taken too seriously.

But he sometimes made a joke of life too, like having 93 Rolls Royces, and that brought blame on him from other teachers.

My brothers Jesus and Lucifer are very different, yet both enlightened.  Which is right?

I have not read Oshos account on awakening but I will.Thanks. I have read many of his booksand just love them and I love the way he speaks.He takes every angle to try to get the point across to neandrethals like me.This is his gift...brilliance.The humor tops it all off.Nothing like grinning, laughing.a good chuckle.His words calm and focus me....He brings an understanding and clarity.And then of course...I...get in the way....Ahhh! or hahahaha.!

Jesus could not be without Lucifer? Its all the same?The paradox....and continuing life death circle....necessary for the whole. I dont know.Its all a beautiful mystery.

One thing that has struck me....Sooo clear... that if there is a circle,where enlightenment is at the center,and on the perimeter is the"sinners" and also the"do gooders" the distance to the center is the same. They each have something to drop ...one has to drop the good....and one has to drop the bad.

Easy go. Easy flow. The decision is beastly.
