The teachings of Osho are a regular feature of the UU A Way Of Life ministries blog which appear on Tuesdays.
Osho has said, "Life is an art. It is not just about living somehow or other. Only he who lives with a purpose actually lives."
And what is the purpose of life? It is individual and it is universal.
The universal purpose of life is to evolve in consciousness to the point wherein everybody loves everybody all the time which, of course, is heaven on earth. Humankind is evolving to this point, the omega, and it still has a way to go.
The individual purpose of life is to become aware of one's holiness and the holiness of all of God's creation by giving up grievances, resentments, anger, attack and fear, and embracing Unconditional Love. A person's life is a classroom which offers many forgiveness opportunities. Some forgiveness opportunities are overlooked, rejected, dismissed, and denied. Other forgiveness opportunties are recognized, accepted, acknowledged, and utilized.
The decision to utilize a forgiveness opportunity to become aware of one's own holiness and the holiness of others to sanctify the world, is the purpose of this classroom we call "life." Practicing the utilization of forgiveness opportunites to become aware of holiness is the art of Life.
