“I know for sure that God does not exist - and thank God he does not exist.”

scularity disguised as spirituality?

I wonder if Osho was just a secular meditation and mental acrobatics instructor or he did invade into the metaphysical and spiritual realms.

If I look at his followers and the Pune Ashram then I would say - he failed in the spiritual mission: they are secular people with no touch with the spirit. They gained some mental relief by doing his meditations and by being aware and observe but this is just a drop comparing to the vast landscapes of the soul and god.

If I look at him - I think by this statement he meant what Krishnamurti meant - a meaning which can not be understood by words - that god is all (not in the secular simple meaning) and you are god - that there is a unified meaningful soul out there and in there...

Personified representation

God: Osho is not a solution but a problem :-)

I think by exist he meant existence in form grasped by the mind and by God he meant the mental personified representation used by the organized religions not the metaphysical formless entity.

In addition, Osho, as he personally admitted, liked to irritate and to put contradicting statements just for confusing the listening minds. I wouldn't take this too seriously.

god's problem

god is NOT the solution
he is also NOT the problem,
like all his religions, god is a symptom... that all sorts of diseases need to appear healthy.

You sound like that of Friedrich Nietsche's popular statement GOD IS DEAD AND MAN IS FREE........Or like that of Jim Morissons lyrics" I AM SICK OF GOD AND SICK OF DOUBTS".............. Yet we all seek for god (within or outside)n filled with doubts ..........Isn't it ironic?..........Life is full of paradoxy,implying we are so vast, so we contradict.........WE CONTAIN ALL...........CAN WE BE GOD THEN? ARE WE SICK OF OURSELVES THEN???????? .............TELL ME!!!!

The "Love" is all there is

We do not have to "believe" God to seek or Love him. Just as we do not have to "believe" "we" are "real". We just need to be the "seeking", and ultimately the "Love.
