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.”

Love is about Appreciation

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.

Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.

So if you love a flower, let it be.

Love is not about possession.

Love is about appreciation.”

~ Osho

You Are Already a Masterpiece

“Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece.

You cannot be improved.

You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.”

~ Osho
