Every Human is a Buddha with the capacity for enlightenment, capable of unconditional Love and of responding rather than reacting to life, although the Ego usually prevents this, identifying with social conditioning and creating false needs and conflicts and an illusory sense of identity that is nothing but a barrier of dreams. Osho's teachings, delivered through his discourses, were not ...
