Real Happiness & Real Love
“Remember, if you repress something, you have to repress it constantly – day in and day out, year in and year out. And the problem is not solved by repressing. In fact, it becomes more and more acute, chronic, because whatsoever is repressed becomes more and more powerful. It gathers energy. It becomes a tumor inside of you.
Surrender is out of love… Dependency is out of fear. It [surrender] is like falling in love. In fact, it is exactly falling in love – a love that knows no bounds, a love that is totally different from what you ordinarily call love. Your love is again a kind of dependency. You become dependent on the person you love, because in fact, you don’t love, you are simply finding somebody to cling to; otherwise you feel very lonely. You want to avoid your loneliness, you want somebody to fill your inner black hole, your emptiness.
But real love is not an escape from loneliness, real love is an overflowing aloneness. One is so happy in being alone that one would like to share – happiness always wants to share… Surrender is the highest form of love. You will not feel dependent because there will be no clinging in it. You will not feel dependent because it is not out of loneliness that you have surrendered.” - Osho
Happy Healing and Loving!
