Osho on Ego



Change happens when you start dropping the conflict with existence. That is the only meaning of all the great religions when they emphasize, 'drop the ego.' They are saying drop the conflict.

The ego is nothing but all the tensions that you have created around yourself. And in the first place there is no need to create it.

To grow real roses is difficult, you can purchase plastic roses. They will not deceive you, but they will deceive the neighbors – that is the point of the ego.
