“Even if a few people understand the truth, that five will be enough. That fire can be passed on form generation to generation. It can go on growing. It is my joy.”
In The Fire of Truth - the first volume in The Path of the Mystic series - Osho not only answers but also dissolves a wide spectrum of questions, infusing his discourses with parables and personal stories.
He leads us beyond psychology, contrasting Western psychoanalysis with the Eastern approach of exploring the unconscious through meditation, through the light of the super conscious. He delves into the mystical with discussions on the evolution of successive lives, on the dynamic yet subtle combination of meditation and hypnosis, and on bardo - the ancient Tibetan instructions for the dying.
Throughout the book Osho emphasizes the imperative of individual freedom, of seeking truth, of living truth:
“I have said that I started my journey in a majority of one, and today, I have to say to you that I will end my journey in a majority of one- for the simple reason that I cannot give you the truth. If through my devices you discover it, you also become a majority of one.”
Every few thousand years an individual appears who irrevocably changes the world around them in ways that are never immediately apparent, except to the most perceptive.
Osho is one such individual: his spoken words will resonate for centuries to come.
All those words have been recorded and transcribed into books like this one, written words that can carry a transforming message to the reader.
For Osho, all change is individual. There is no “society” to change - it can only happen to each one of us, one at a time.
So, no matter what the subject matter of the book, the thread that runs through all Osho’s words is like a love song that we can suddenly, mysteriously, hear at just the right be referring to, they are really only referring to us.
And this is no ordinary love song, more an invitation to open our hearts to hear something beyond the words, beyond the heart…a silence beyond all understanding. Where we all belong.
