Ten Commandments

Osho's "Ten Commandments"
In 1970, when he was still known as Acharya Rajneesh, Osho was asked about his "Ten Commandments". In his letter of reply, Osho noted that it was a difficult matter, because he was against any kind of commandment, but "just for fun" agreed to set out the following

Never obey anyone's command unless it is coming from within you also.
There is no God other than life itself.
Truth is within you, do not search for it elsewhere.
Love is prayer.
To become a nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness itself is the means, the goal and attainment.
Life is now and here.
Live wakefully.
Do not swim – float.
Die each moment so that you can be new each moment.
Do not search. That which is, is. Stop and see.

He underlined numbers 3, 7, 9 and 10.The ideas expressed in these Commandments have remained a constant leitmotif in his movement.

This particular information comes from spiritual guru Osho. I found this off of Wikipedia and found it so fascinating, deep, and thought provoking that I had too share. All I can say is hmmmm

Thanks Joe. I enjoyed this. George Carlin once reduced the Hebrew 10 commandments down to two. I've reduced this teacher's 10 commandments down to three.

1. Stop searching. That which is, is.
2. Purge yourself of beliefs.
3. Trust that which remains.
