a rebel is one who does not react against the society, who understands the whole game of it and simply slips out of it. It becomes irrelevant.
not against it. that is the beauty of rebellion: it is freedom. ~ Osho
The author of Brave New World left a warning for those who love liberty.
the world is filled with nationalists & globalists, two opposite sides of the same coin balancing & warring. governments puppeted by the deep state, that are puppeted by corporations (sometimes opposing each other), that are puppeted by banks, that are puppeted by the hierarchy that are puppeted by the shadow government & councils. all for world dominance, greed, power, wealth at the top, one world governance, military police state, technocratic corporate oligarchy, eugentics, genocide, agenda 2030, gmo mass food supply, chemical poisoning, big brother orwellian societies, brain washing, dumbing, low density frequencies, emf pollution, mass manipulation, fake news propaganda.
i want no part of it.
because Osho gets it. ~!~
…”Life flows like a river –and by the side, on the bank, children go on playing a thousand and one games.
…”Life goes on flowing –and we become so engrossed in our games that we forget life completely.
…”Life is flowing within us –but we are engaged in our games, preoccupied.
…”Preoccupation is a fundamental disease of the mind; it is a way to avoid the river of life.
…”What do I mean by ‘preoccupation’?
…”Preoccupation means either you are in the past or you are in the future.
…”Preoccupation means you can be anywhere except herenow.
…”When you are herenow you are not preoccupied.
…”Then there is no occupation –then there is simple clarity, vulnerable openness.
…”And an unpreoccupied mind is the alert mind, the intelligent mind.
…”And the intelligent mind is in tune with the river of life, flows with it.
…”A preoccupied mind is playing games, and playing them very seriously.
…”You can go into the marketplace and see people playing the game of money, and very seriously.
…”And they will die and all the money will be left here –and while they were here they played the game so seriously.
…”Go in to a capital town and see how people are madly playing the game of power.
…”This word ‘capital’ is very beautiful, it comes from a root-word ‘capita’ which means ‘head’.
…”So ‘capital’ means a head city, or a mad city. All kinds of mad people have gathered in capitals.
…”If God wants to save this world, he can do a single miracle and it will be saved: just let capitals disappear.
…”Suddenly, no New Delhi, no Washington, no Moscow, no Peking, no London. Suddenly all capitals disappear; you will be surprised to see that all mad people have disappeared. They are found in the capitals –if they are not in the capitals, they are moving towards the capitals.
…”A great game.
…”Millions of people are killed in that game –nationality, and this and that, ‘isms’. Communism, fascism, nazism, socialism. China and Russia and America, and India and Pakistan and Bangladesh.
…”And they go on fighting: and very seriously, their very life is at stake.
…”All children, just juveniles; they have missed growing up.
…”And they go on missing the river of life because they are so preoccupied.
…”Everybody is so confined with his game….
…”Have you watched people playing chess? They forget the whole world. In chess, people become so absorbed, even if the house gets caught in fire they will not be aware of it. They are down-focused with their false elephants and horses –just symbols!
…”Everybody is playing a game of preoccupation.
…”If you are listening to me and you have come here as a Christian, you are preoccupied.
…”Or as a Mohammedan, you are preoccupied. Or as a Buddhist, you are preoccupied.
…”Even if you believe in Zen you are preoccupied.
…”All beliefs create preoccupation.
…”If you listen to me and inside your head you go on saying, ‘Yes, this the holy Koran also says,’ then you are not holy at all.
…”Or, ‘Yes, this is what Jesus also says in the New Testament,’ then you have not known Jesus at all. You have missed Jesus, and you will miss me too.
…”‘Preoccupation’ means: in the past, in the future, never herenow.
…”When you are herenow, there is no game. Games stop, then you flow with the river of life.
…”Then there is spontaneity and there is great intelligence and there is great celebration.
…”Games stop, you don’t take things seriously.
…”If you win, good. If you fail, good. It makes no difference.
…”That’s what I mean by ‘games disappear’ –I don’t mean that when you become alert, awakened, you don’t live life, the ordinary life.
…”You still live the ordinary life, you still chop wood, you still carry water –but with great serenity.
…”You still laugh, you still love –but with a totally different quality.
…”Now nothing matters. If the woman leaves you, you say good-bye with great gratitude. If your money is stolen, you say, ‘Okay, somebody must have needed it.’
…”You are not serious any more, that’s all. That seriousness has disappeared.
…”You still continue to play, but you know that these chess-horses and elephants and the king and queen and this and that, they are all just symbols. a metaphor.
