what osho might say, if he were to speak to me

don't speak so much
let yourself empty out
without emptying it out
on everyone else

you will become like a lantern
inside, a beautifully lit light
you will carry yourself quietly
into rooms dark with dis-ease--
places where no one wants to see
the simple tiny truths
of living and dying

you will stand and smile
and everything--
will change

there will be day
in the darkness
a small light,

no one will need to say a word
the words will fall away
the light,
it will stay


highly recommended reading:
tantra by osho, or any of his books, i imagine.

This is so beautiful and so true.
I am an avid reader of Osho too.

hi rachel

i landed on your page from amy's blog.

i so love, "you will become like a lantern
inside" - makes me feel tender.

actually there's not much of osho that doesn't!
thank you!

cheers from shana
