The moment you start seeing your faults, they start dropping
                                                                            like dry leaves.

Then nothing else has to be done. To see them is enough. Just to be aware of your faults is all that is needed. In that awareness they start disappearing, they evaporate.

One can go on committing a certain error only if one remains unconscious of it. Unconsciousness is a must to go on committing the same errors, and even if you try to change, you will commit the same error in some other form, in some other shape. They come in all sizes and all shapes! You will exchange, you will substitute, but you cannot drop it because deep down you don't see that it is a fault. Others may be telling you because they can see..........

That's why everybody thinks himself so beautiful, so intelligent, so virtuous, so saintly - and nobody agrees with him! The reason is simple: you look at others, you see their reality, and about yourself you carry fictions, beautiful fictions. All that you know about yourself is more or less a myth; it has nothing to do with reality.

The moment one sees one's faults, a radical change sets in. Hence all the buddhas down the ages have been teaching only one thing - awareness. They don't teach you character - character is taught by priests, politicians, but not by the buddhas.  Buddhas teach you 'consciousness' not 'conscience.'

Conscience is a trick played upon you by others - others are telling you what is right and what is wrong. They are forcing their ideas upon you, and they go on forcing them from your very childhood. When you were so innocent, so vulnerable, so delicate that there was a possibility of making an impression on you, an imprint on you, they have conditioned you - from the very beginning. That conditioning is called conscience, and that conscience goes on dominating your whole life. Conscience is a strategy of society to enslave you.

The buddhas teach consciousness. Consciousness means you are not to learn from others what is right and what is wrong. There is no need to learn from anybody, you have simply to go in. Just the inward journey is enough - the deeper you go, the more consciousness is released. When you reach the center, you are so full of light that darkness disappears.

                        When you bring light into your room, you don't have to push the darkness out.
                       The presence of the light is enough because darkness is only an absence of light.

Ah Yes, Ann, the post is years+ old and the politicians may have been different in those times, who knows? LOL   I think it's funny too to read this now, I didn't take any notice the first time I read the whole post.  I have many spiritual books and before I learnt to cross-post articles from the internet, I typed them all !!!  Some took me 1 1/2 hours !   I learnt to type at school and picked it up again through doing posts on websites, I have only used a 'puter for 5years now, self-taught and learnt along the way, never even touched one before that !!  Osho can be  rather blunt in his ways, but I still like his teachings.  They all have their own style, the sp. teachers.

Have a lovely weekend Ann, love and hugs, Tara

Not quite sure about "politicians teaching us character"  This part..."When you were so innocent, so vulnerable, so delicate that there was a possibility of making an impression on you, an imprint on you, they have conditioned you - from the very beginning."  ...seems like we are all becoming very conscious of just how strongly those formative years have made such a strong impact & still dictate to us who we are.  The breaking free from the lies is hard to do when living with them for years.  I wish I knew about this when I was 20 so I had a head start on it.  Working away bit by bit we drop the illusion of our faults.  Thank you as always beloved Tara Mary.  Btw I just love your is fun to type, to say & it feels good..Tara Mary..ahhh
