"Life is not as simple as you think; it is very complicated. It is true that if you want to be in touch with me, you will be more and more in the heart, not..."

Osho continues:
"You are already enslaved by the society because your mind has not fought against it; it has been obedient to it.

"Both these statements belong to different contexts, so don't get mixed up. When I say be with me with your heart, put the mind aside, it is one thing, one context of being a disciple. And if you can really do it totally you can reach to the highest peak – that is of being a devotee.

"These are the three stages: The student who listens only from the mind – he will collect knowledge, but he will not become a knower. The disciple who tries to put the mind aside and listen from the heart – he is making an effort. The mind will come again and again in between; the effort will not be total. But still, even if something reaches to the heart, even a few seeds, soon it will change the whole color of your being – the season will not be far away when the heart will start blossoming. That is the point when you reach to the boundary line of being a devotee.

"Now you are capable of putting the mind completely, totally away without any interference, as if you are not a mind at all. You are just heart and heart. Your every fiber is simply vibrating with love, openness, vulnerability. The devotee and the master start melting into each other.

"The disciple once in a while gets the glimpse, but the devotee becomes totally one with the master. The disciple can fall back, can get into the mind again. The devotee has broken the bridge that leads to the mind. He cannot go back; the past is finished. He has become part and parcel of the master's energy.

"This is one context, and you are mixing it with another context. As far as the society, the outside world, the religions, the governments are concerned, you have to be very sharp and very intelligent; otherwise they will enslave you, they will exploit you. They have been doing it for centuries. They have not allowed millions of people to go beyond the age of thirteen as far as the mind is concerned."
