"A man of awareness is not obsessed with anything – he has no obsession. He is just relaxed, calm and quiet, silent and serene. Out of his silence whatever blossoms is good. It is always good – he lives in a choiceless awareness.
"So go beyond the ordinary concept of a good man. You will not be good, you will not be bad. You will simply be alert, conscious, aware, and then whatever follows is going to be good. In a different way I can say that in your total awareness you attain the quality of godliness – and good is only a small by-product of godliness.
"Religions have been teaching you to be good, so that one day you can find God. That is not possible – no good man has ever found godliness. I am teaching just the reverse: find godliness, and good will come on its own accord. And when good comes on its own accord, it has a beauty, a grace, a simplicity, a humbleness. it does not ask for any reward here or hereafter. it is its own reward." Osho
"The subject of awareness is the most transcendental, complex and profound in the field of spirituality. Awareness is the real direction of life evolutionary process on this planet. Today, only very few persons in the world can speak with authority about this subject. Osho is one of them. I do not know of others, except Krisnamurti and Gurdjieff in the past. I found Osho the most eloquent, clear and compassionate of all. Thanks to St. Martin Press for giving us this rare gem of practical insight."
