Osho's wisdom: love and attachment are not one

Live totally, live intensely, so that each moment becomes golden and your whole life becomes a series of golden moments. 

      Such a person never dies because he has the Midas touch: Whatever he touches becomes golden. 

This small life that you have got can be turned into a paradise. This very earth is the lotus paradise. 

The only authentic responsibility is towards your own potential, your intelligence and awareness and act accordingly. 

With birth you are not born as a tree, you are born only as a seed. You have to grow to the point where you come to a flowering, and that flowering will be your contentment, fulfilment. 

    This flowering has nothing to do with power, nothing to do with money, nothing to do with politics. It has something to do absolutely with you; it is an individual progress. 

You have to become a celebration unto yourself.

Drop the idea that attachment and love are one thing. They are enemies. It is attachment that destroys all love. 

     If you feed, if you nourish attachment, love will be destroyed; if you feed and nourish love, attachment will fall away by itself. 

     Love and attachment are not one; they are two separate entities, and antagonistic to each other. 

If you worship someone, one day you are going to take revenge. 

You are to be aware not to be manipulated by anybody, howsoever good their intentions are. You have to save yourself from so many well-intentioned people, do-gooders, who are constantly advising you to be this, to be that. Listen to them and thank them. They don't mean any harm- but harm is what happens. 

     Just listen to your own heart. 

     That is your only teacher.
