Why The Deep-Seated Hatred?


osho inspirational daily

Dislike or hatred of another is the basis of deep-seated complications. The word hatred means the desire to destroy the other. Love means being willing to sacrifice oneself for another, if necessary. In the way we all live there is an abundance of hatred and no music of love.

The feeling which we call love is, in fact, a form of hatred. In making love we make another our means for happiness; and hatred begins. In making love we live for our own self; to serve our own selfish end. We do something for another only when we have some hope of getting something from him – we desire the fruit; otherwise we do nothing. That is why our love may turn into hatred at any moment. If a small obstruction crops up that gets in the way of the fulfillment of our desire, our love will be changed into hatred. Love which can be turned into hatred and contempt is only concealed hatred. There is only hatred within, and the outer covering is just a semblance of love.

If there is no hatred, love blooms of its own accord – spontaneously, naturally. It is like removing a stone blocking a small stream: once removed, the stream flows of its own accord. Similarly, the stone of hatred weighs on us and we are unable to see our faces reflected in the mirrors of all animate and inanimate objects; nor can we become mirrors reflecting all those objects in ourselves.

The person for whom the whole world becomes a mirror, himself becomes a mirror for the whole world. They happen simultaneously. The Upanishad says that when this happens, hatred disappears but it doesn’t say that love is born then, because love is eternal, it is our nature. Neither is it born, nor does it die.

Love is the nature of life, so it has neither birth nor death. Clouds of hatred are born and die. Love is covered when those clouds are born; it manifests itself when they disappear, when they are no more. But love is eternal, so the Upanishad does not talk of the birth of love, it says this much only: hatred dies and disappears.

But how? The sutra is not as easy as it appears. Mostly, there is great depth and intricacy hidden within easy matters. This sutra seems to be straightforward and easy. The whole statement is completed in two lines only. It says, the person who sees himself in all objects – animate and inanimate – and begins to see all objects in himself, will have his hatred destroyed. But to make all his mirror, or to be a mirror for all, is the greatest alchemy and art. There is no greater art.

In the name of Future


Its a simple story again from my childhood, a very popular, but encouraging and has been lost as we grow from our childhood to our young age. This is a simple story of a very old Gardner, from the times when king used to rule the territories. This old gardner used to take care of the plants and plant one tree daily into his land.

One day, the king on this royal chariot goes out and watch this old Gardner working very hard in the shiny sun. The king stops there  to get some water and the Gardner, thinking of its duty serves the  king with water and the fruits from his garden. After a full good apetite, king ask the Gardner, why he plant new trees in-spite it has too many trees in his garden and go for a nice living without too much efforts.

Gardner gives a very gentle reply. He tells, when I was small, my grandfather and father used to plant new trees in order that when these trees will grow up, it will be used to serve it for me and my child in the future and I am following the same tradition. When my grand child will get bigger, they used to enjoy the same privilege, what I was enjoying now, given by my fore-fathers.

The story is very simple, it shows a  very important message to the present generation…What we will left for our future generation, when we die. We have already enjoyed a very good privileges from what our ancestors has been left for us….fresh air, trees, lands to cultivate, a healthy environment, but the question is are we doing the same for our future and passing our culture to them.

The mentioned story teach us to left a good privilege for the generations to come, its a thought, which meant to give the same to our future, when we already enjoyed and lost it, because we haven’t reap the same on time. Through this, its a message to deliver that its the time, when we have to take decisions and plant new trees, so that our future will understand the lost culture and maintain the same for their future, so the cycle continues.Writer — Vibhore Goel
