LISTEN TO OSHO SPEAK ON THIS MEDITATION
TRUTH FORMS ARE INSEPARATE. INSEPARATE ARE OMNIPRESENT BEING AND YOUR
OWN FORM. REALIZE EACH AS MADE OF THIS CONSCIOUSNESS.
In truth forms are inseparate. They appear separate, but every form
is joined together with other forms. Our reality is a co-existence.
It is really an inter-reality, an inter-subjectivity. For example,
think of yourself alone on this earth. What will you be? The whole
of humanity has disappeared, you are left alone after a third world
war, alone in the world, alone on this big earth. Who will you be?
The first thing is that it is impossible to conceive of yourself alone.
It is impossible, I say, to conceive of yourself alone. You will try
and try and you will see that someone is just standing there -- your
wife, your children, your friends -- because you cannot exist alone,
even in imagination. You exist with others. They give you existence.
They contribute. You contribute to them and they contribute to you.
Who will you be? Will you be a good man or a bad man? Nothing can
be said, because goodness and badness exist in relation. Will you
be beautiful or ugly? Nothing can be said. Will you be man or woman?
Nothing can be said, because whatsoever you are, you are related to
someone else. Will you be wise or foolish? By and by you will see
that every form has disappeared. And with these other forms, all forms
within you have also disappeared. You are neither foolish nor wise,
neither good nor bad, neither ugly nor beautiful, neither man nor
woman. Then what will you be? If you goon eliminating all forms, soon
you will realize that only nothing remains. We see forms as separate,
but they are not. Every form is linked with others. Forms exist in
This sutra says, IN TRUTH FORMS ARE INSEPARATE. INSEPARATE ARE OMNIPRESENT
BEING AND YOUR OWN FORM. Even your form and the form of the whole
existence is inseparate. You are one with it. You cannot be without
it. And the other thing is also true but difficult to conceive: the
universe cannot be without you. The universe cannot be without you
just as you cannot e without the universe. You have been existing
in many, many forms always and you will exist always in many, many
forms. But you will be there. You are an intrinsic part of this universe.
You are not alien, you are not a stranger to it, you are not an outsider.
You are an insider, an intrinsic part. And the universe cannot afford
to lose you because if it loses you, it will lose itself. Forms are
not separate, they are inseparate. They are one. Only the appearance
gives demarcations and boundaries. This can become a realization if
you ponder over it, penetrate into it; it becomes a realization, not
a doctrine, not a thought, but a realization that, "Yes, I am
one with the universe and the universe is one with me."
This is what Jesus was saying to the Jews. But they felt offended
because Jesus said, "I and my father in heaven are one."
Jews felt offended. What was he claiming? Was he claiming that he
and God are one? This was blasphemy. He must be punished. But he was
simply teaching a technique, nothing else. He was simply teaching
a technique that forms are not separate, that you and the whole are
one -- "I and my father in heaven are one." But this was
not a claim, this was just a suggested technique. And when Jesus said,
"I and my father are one," he didn't mean that you and the
father and the Divine are separate. When he said `I', every `I' is
represented. Whenever `I' exists, that `I' and the Divine is one.
But it can be misunderstood, and both Jews and Christians misunderstood.
Even Christians misunderstood, because they say he was the only begotten
son of God, the only begotten son, so that no one else can claim that
he also is a son of God.
I was reading a very funny book. The title is THREE CHRISTS. In
a madhouse, there were three men, and all the three claimed that they
were Christ. This is an actual fact not a story. So one psychoanalyst
studied all three. Then the thought came to his mind that it would
be very funny to introduce them to each other to see what would happen
-- how they would introduce themselves and what their reaction would
be. So he brought all three together and left them in a room to introduce
themselves. The first one said, "I am the only begotten son,
Jesus Christ." The other laughed and in his mind he thought he
must be mad! He said, "How can you be? I am Jesus Christ. You
are also part of that whole. A fragment of that consciousness is in
you also. But Jesus Christ, the only son of God -- that I am."
The third thought that both were foolish, that both had gone insane.
He said, "What are you talking about? Look at me. The son of
God is here."
Then the psychoanalyst asked them separately, "What is your reaction?"
They all said, "Both the others are mad. The other two have gone
And this is not only the case with madmen. (f you ask Christians
what they think about Krishna, because he claims that he is God, they
will say that there is only one, one penetration of the beyond, and
that is Jesus Christ. At only one time in history did God penetrate
into the world, and that was with Jesus Christ. Krishna is good, a
great man but not Divine, not God himself.
you ask Hindus, they will laugh at Jesus. The same madness goes on,
and the reality is that everyone is the only begotten son of God --
everyone. The otherwise is not possible. You come from the same source,
whether you are Jesus or Krishna or A, B, C, anybody or anybody, you
come from the same source. And every `I', every consciousness, is
immediately related to the Divine. Jesus was giving only a technique.
He was misunderstood.
technique is the same. In truth forms are inseparate. Inseparate are
omnipresent being and your own form. Realize each as made of this
consciousness. Not only realize that you are made of this consciousness,
realize that everything around you is made of this consciousness.
Because it is very easy to realize that you are made of this consciousness,
it can give you a very egoistic feeling, it can be a deep fulfillment
to the ego. But realize that the other is also, then it become a humbleness.
When everything is Divine you cannot have any egoistic mind. When
everything is Divine, you are humbled. Then there is no question of
your being somebody, or something above, then the whole of existence
is Divine, and wherever you look, you look at the Divine. The looker
and the looked-at are both Divine because forms are not separate.
Underneath all forms is hidden one formlessness.
