What does the Bible say about the will of man? Is it, as many preachings today claim, free, or is it horridly bent toward evil? It is only 10 minutes long, so please do listen to it. I pray that it may edify, rebuke, and correct.
“The greatest courage in life is to lose yourself — and that’s the primary requirement of love. Unless you lose yourself you cannot be in love. You can play the game called love, but you will never know the reality of love. You will be doing something else in the name of love. Deep down it will only be an ego trip — and love can never be an ego trip. Ego has to be dissolved, only then does love flow in you. And that is real courage. In a deep sense it is committing suicide — not of the body but of the mind. It is becoming mindless. Hence love looks to people like something mad, insane. In a way it is true, it is mad. Going beyond the mind is a certain kind of madness. Of course it is divine madness and it brings a sanity of its own kind. It beings an insight, an understanding, but is is totally different from intellectual understanding. It is not of the mind, it is of the beyond.”—Osho (via oceanofmind)
