In response to questions from individuals and members of the press, Osho speaks on the essential and timeless path of meditation — focusing on India’s ancient heritage of inquiry into transforming human consciousness, of going within ourselves rather than looking to the outer world for fulfillment and recognition.
The whole of humanity is suffering from one disease and that disease is ambition: “Go on fighting.” Don’t even worry whether the whys and wherefores of your fight are right or wrong. Who has the time? Time is short and there is no certainty to life. So the means may be right or wrong, but you have to prove that you are something. And the interesting thing is that it is a defeat on both sides.
Defeated, you are defeated. Victorious, you are badly defeated. In the place of ambition, create self-longing: a desire to know yourself, to recognize yourself, to dive within yourself. This alone is the remedy. And the disease is only one – although its names may be many, its forms may be many. The remedy, too, is only one.
