Osho's message /part one
Osho's message was ultimately a positive one. He taught that we are all Buddhas and that all have the capacity for enlightenment. Every human being, according to Osho, is capable of experiencing unconditional love and of responding rather than reacting to life. As he said: "You are truth. You are love. You are bliss. You are freedom". It is possible, he suggested, to experience innate divinity and to be conscious of "who we really are." We do not do so only because our egos prevent us from enjoying this experience: "When the ego is gone the whole individuality arises in its crystal purity". The problem is how to bypass the ego so that our innate being can flower; how to move from the periphery to the center. Osho's answer came from a variety of viewpoints.
