Osho About Balance

“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height.

Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches.

Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth.

Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously.

The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots.

In fact, it is always in proportion.

That’s its balance.”

~ Osho, Everyday Osho: 365 Daily Meditations for the Here and Now

Choose Less Turbulent Skies

“Always seek less turbulent skies.

Hurt. Fly above it.

Betrayal. Fly above it.

Anger. Fly above it.

You are the one who is flying the plane.”

~ Marianne Williamson

Peace in a Cup

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently,

as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves –

slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”

Everything is Connected

“For all is like an ocean, all flows and connects;

touch it in one place and it echoes at the other end of the world.”
