"The state when you are relaxed and become very sharply awake takes you closer to the superconscious. And a state when you are relaxed but fall into a peaceful sleep leads you toward the unconscious..."

Osho continues:
"To fall asleep you need to be tired, exhausted, but if the energy is so much then sleep is not possible, and that is when the first state will be happening – a sharp awareness.

"So they look opposite, but only intellectually – in reality they support each other. When you are sharply awake you are consuming a vast amount of energy, more than you ordinarily consume in your so-called waking state. Naturally you will need a deeper, calmer and quieter sleep than your ordinary sleep – which is a turmoil – so that you can regain the energy that has been used in being sharply alert.

"So they are both just like two hands; they are both yours. So whatever happens, enjoy it. In that moment that is your need; don't try to change it. That's where trouble starts, because you start thinking to be sharply aware is higher, then why not be sharply aware all the time? You cannot do that. You will need periods of deep rest.

"So you don't interfere. Just relax. Do the exercise you are doing, and whatever happens, enjoy it because that must be the need.
Osho,
I am angry with my parents for the first time. They are simple people, and I say to myself, 'It is not their fault that they have no understanding of Osho.' But my anger is in conflict with my love and it hurts. I am so angry writing this that I can't even formulate the question. Can you help please?
"Every child would be angry if he understood what the poor parents have been doing to him unknowingly, unconsciously. All their efforts were for the best for the child. Their intentions are good but their consciousness is nil. And good intentions in the hands of unconscious people are dangerous. They cannot bring about the result they are intending. They may create just the opposite of it.

"Every parent is trying to bring a beautiful child into the world, but looking at the world it seems it is an orphanage, there have been no parents at all. In fact if it were an orphanage, it would have been far better, because at least you would have been yourself – no parents to interfere with you."
