Osho continues:
"I am not a pessimist, but I am no longer an optimist either. I used to be – now, I am simply a realist. The reality is that perhaps we are very close to the end of this beautiful planet, with all its beauty, all its life, and all its great achievements. There seems to be no ray of hope from anywhere. Perhaps when I am saying this, it is not me who is saying it; perhaps it is existence itself that has lost hope about humanity and its future.

“The only thing that I still go on dreaming for is my people. Perhaps the planet will not be saved, but those who have come to me, if they make a little effort of becoming conscious, to create a longing for enlightenment, at least they can be saved. But if you go on behaving like the masses of the world, you are also a lost case.

“Immense responsibility rests on you because nowhere else in the whole world are people trying, even in small groups, to achieve enlightenment, to be meditative, to be loving, to be rejoicing. We are a very small island in the ocean of the world, but it does not matter. If these few people can be saved, the whole heritage of humanity, the heritage of all the mystics, of all the awakened people, can be saved through you.

“If this planet dies, perhaps on another planet… There are fifty thousand planets which can sustain life; perhaps civilization has to begin from ABC on some other planet. But who will be the pioneers? These dark masses, utterly unconscious, cannot be. Only a few chosen ones who have strived hard to make themselves deserving of light, of eternal life, of some experience of godliness – perhaps they will be the ones who will be starting a new civilization somewhere in the universe, on some new planet.

“I have never said this before but, going around the world, I have felt such a wound in my heart that the people who need to be saved are the people who are creating every kind of barrier in order not to be saved. Even to approach them has become impossible. Seeing the whole world, I started feeling that there is now only one possibility, and that is to create a Noah's Ark in the consciousness of those few who have come close to me. It will not be a physical thing, but a Noah's Ark of consciousness which can move a small group of conscious people to another planet. That seems to be the only possibility to save the great heritage of humanity.”
