OSHO: It’s All About Change

From the Preface:
When Osho spoke with his secretary about creating a book from selections
of his talks titled, The Greatest Challenge: The Golden Future; he
gave detailed suggestions concerning subjects and issues he had spoken about
that should be included. He specifically wanted the compilation to address the
challenges of over-population and global warming, globalization and war,
poverty and ecological devastation – challenges that we face today in an
increasingly urgent way. This new edition expands on the material originally
presented in that publication. Here is an excerpt from the original notes given
by Osho:

The future should not be just a hope and opportunity; those are
just lousy words. The future should be absolutely ours – it should be a
golden future. We have lived with the idea of a golden past – which
was never golden! But we can create a future that is really golden.
Now is a great moment. We can manage to have one world. This
crisis is a golden crisis, because people change only under conditions of
such deep stress. As long as the situation is tolerable, people will tolerate
it – but now we are at a point where the situation is not tolerable. There
is no more time for commissions and their reports.
The problems are very simple. It is just that it has to be made clear
to the whole humanity that these problems are your creation, and you
are still creating them. A great awareness has to be spread: “These are
the problems you are supporting. Withdraw your support.”
And some practical steps should be taken … for example, if
someone wants to be a world citizen, the United Nations should provide
world citizen passports, not connected with any nation. Just small
steps can have a large impact immediately, they will create an atmosphere.
This crisis has been created by religions and nationalities, and it
has come to the point where they cannot exist anymore.
If anything is to be done for the future, now is the time. Otherwise
the greatest evolution of consciousness in the universe will disappear –
and that is not only a loss to the earth, but to the whole of existence. In
a million years we have been able to create some possibility of consciousness.
But now we don’t have time to wait for nature to go on
developing in its slow way. It has eternity, but we don’t have.
If we are going to solve the future and dissolve the problems, then
we have to look for the roots in the past. It is our whole past, in all its
dimensions, that has brought about this dangerous situation – and
nobody talks about that, because no generation before this has ever
bothered about the future. Man has always been living the way he
wanted, and forced each new generation to live in the same way. This is
no longer possible. We have to take a quantum leap – to teach the new
generation not to live the same way we have lived. Only then can the
future be shifted.
