OSHO: Emotional Wellness – Almost Drunk With Emotion


OSHO Emotional Wellness transforming fear, anger and jealousy into creative energy emotions cannot be permanent that’s why they are called “emotions”… the word comes from “motion,” movement from one to another you continually change… …this moment you are sad, that moment you are happy… …this moment you are loving another moment full of hatred in stores: Emotional Wellness Hardcover: 304 pages Publisher:Harmony OSHO International Foundation presents Osho: Almost Drunk with Emotion Dhyan Raga, there is certainly something very similar in very different emotions: the overwhelmingness. It may be love, it may be hate, it may be anger — it can be anything. If it is too much, then it gives you a sense of being overwhelmed by something. Even pain and suffering can create the same experience, but overwhelmingness has no value in itself. It simply shows you are an emotional being. This is typically the indication of an emotional personality. When it is anger, it is all anger. And when it is love, it is all love. It almost becomes drunk with the emotion, blind. And whatever action comes out of it is wrong. Even if it is overwhelming love, the action that will come out of it is not going to be right. Reduced to its base, whenever you are overwhelmed by any emotion you lose all reason, you lose all sensitivity, you lose not only your heart into it… it becomes almost like a dark cloud in which you are lost. Then whatever you do is going to be wrong. Love is not to be a part of your emotions. Ordinarily that’s what people think and experience, but anything overwhelming is very unstable. It comes like a wind and passes by, and leaves you behind empty, shattered, in sadness and in sorrow. Love, according to those who know man’s whole being — his mind, his heart and his being — love has to be an expression of your being, not an emotion. Emotion is very fragile, very changing. One moment it seems it is all. Another moment you are simply empty. So the first thing to do is to take love out of this crowd of overwhelming emotions. Love is not overwhelming. On the contrary, love is a tremendous insight, clarity, sensitivity, awareness. But that kind of love rarely exists, because very few people ever reach to their being. There are people who are drinking because they have wives, and there are people who are drinking because they don’t have any wives. It is a strange world. One does not know on what logical basis it is being run, whether there is any logic at all in life or it is absolutely absurd. You have to, Raga, take out your love from the emotional grip where it is already found at birth, and you have to find a route to your being. Unless your love becomes part of your being it is not much different from pain, suffering, sadness. Emotions are not going to help you become an integrated individuality. They are not going to give you a granite soul. You will remain just like dead wood moving in the stream, here and there, not knowing why. Emotions blind man exactly as does alcohol.
