Random Quote #95 topic: osho


A man who lives through conscience becomes hard. A man who lives
through consciousness remains soft. Why?--because a man who has some
ideas about how to live, naturally becomes hard. He has continuously
to carry his character around himself. That character is like an
armor; his protection, his security; his whole life is invested in
that character. And he always reacts to situations through the
character, not directly. If you ask him a question, his answer is
ready-made. That is the sign of a hard person--he is dull, stupid,
mechanical. He may be a good computer, but he is not a man. You do
something and he reacts in a well- established way. His reaction is
predictable; he is a robot. The real man acts spontaneously. If you
ask him a question, your question gets a response, not a reaction. He
opens his heart to your question, exposes himself to your question,
responds to it....

Osho Take it Easy, Volume 1 Chapter 13
