to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

is the noble way to live.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

in this case by sharing my emotional outlook on life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating,
thinking of enslaving the other person.
- Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)
