Description
About the Book

Although titled Random Thoughts, these small notes are not thoughts. They are impromptu self-expressions of truth, arising in a consciousness steeped in utter silence. So that they are not lost to the seekers of truth, Osho wrote them down as they happened, and now those short pieces make up this exquisite collection.

Osho has said that masters do not speak about truth. Even if they want to, they cannot; it is impossible – truth cannot be told. They cannot speak about truth, but they can call forth the truth that is fast asleep in each of us. They can provoke it, they can challenge it.

Perhaps Osho’s words in this small book will create that context for you, and enable you to explore what can be awakened:

"Where are you going?

What you are searching for is not far away, it is nearby.

And if you travel to find what is near,

you will not come close to it, but will go further away.

Stop and see! To search for what is near,

it is enough to just stop and see"

Preface

The rebel, by his very nature, cannot belong to any category that exists; he is a new category. He introduces a new man into the world. He is a herald of a new dawn, a new beginning. No category of the past can contain him; all the categories that have existed up to now have proved either failures, or insufficient to change the whole of humanity. The rebel is the seed for the transformation of all.

There have been great people in the world, but even the greatest of them are very small in comparison to the authentic rebel I am talking about because they all, in some way or other, compromise with the establishment. That’s where the rebel differs from them all.

They were wise, they were creative artists, they were musicians, dancers, all kinds of people — the past has produced many luminous figures; but something is missing in them. The basic thing missing is they all lived in a compromise with the vested interests. None of them was total in his rebelliousness. Yes, partial rebels have existed, but a partial rebel is not enough. Man needs total rebels to change the destiny of mankind from turning into a graveyard — to turn its direction toward the Garden of Eden.

The rebel will have to create a category for himself by his own living, by his own responses. He will become absolutely discontinuous with the past through his own creativity, his love, and his own non-compromising approach. The rebel will not have any past, any history. He will have only the present and a vast future which is open — not dominated by the dead past because there is no past for the rebel.

The rebel means absolute freedom, absolute love, absolute creativity. He is a totally new kind of man who has been dreamed of by a few people in the past — by a few poets, by a few philosophers, by a few mystics. But it has remained a dream — so much so that people started calling these poets and mystics "utopians."

The word utopia means, in its root, "that which never comes." You can dream about it, but your dream is an exercise in utter futility; it is utopian, it is not going to come, ever. It is a hopeless hope. It is opium to keep people dreaming and hallucinating, so that they can tolerate the suffering and misery of the present.

The rebel is not a dream; the rebel is a reality. He is not a utopia, he is an actual realization of man’s potential; he is a promise fulfilled, a dream realized.
