Yes, this one is fantastic and deserves to be the most suitable insight and ideation to depict how artificialization and urbanization have taken over the charge of naturalization and ruralization. We need to open up our urban bottle to feel some green-intoxication. Ahaaaa..... Thanks and regards....

How beautifully the expression of undefinable and unknowable expansion of the Existence is depicted here through a very simple image! And how profound it is in its essence! Yes, life consists of small things..... Thanks and regards....

Osho, [i:1vhpcqfq][size=150:1vhpcqfq]I also happen to be modern painter. I never heard you qualifying your statement when you criticized the impressionists. I’d like to know what you think about them. Why do you say that these people are just intelligent but they are mad and they have not done anything that is significant and the person who painted a nice beautiful scene has done something that is meditative?[/size:1vhpcqfq][/i:1vhpcqfq] One thing is certain, you don’t know anything of meditation. And without knowing anything of meditation, everybody is mad. The difference is only of degrees. You may be normally mad, you may be abnormally mad, but only meditation makes a person absolutely certain that he is not mad. These impressionists and other schools of painters, musicians, novelists, existentialists, all are basically non-meditative. None of them has created out of meditation. Whatever they have done is their intellectual approach to life. Whatever they have seen, they have tried to express it. But in their own life they are not sane people. And the people who appreciate their art are mostly people who appreciate anything that comes into fashion. For example, when Van Gogh was alive he could not sell a single painting, and now only two hundred paintings are available and each painting can fetch millions of dollars. Van Gogh himself got mad. The last year of his life he was in madhouse. And when he was released from the madhouse, just after few months he committed suicide. Most of the modern painters, novelists, musicians, dancers - different dimensions of art - most of these people, particularly those who were the greatest, have been at least one time in their life in a mental hospital. These are the people, taken as a profession, have committed more suicide than any other profession. And these are the people, if you look into their lives you will find all kinds of perversions: homosexuals, sodomists. And their actual life will make it clear that these people have intelligence, but their intelligence is not moving in a peaceful, harmonious way. It is moving in a very destructive way. Otherwise, committing suicide or going insane for an artist should be impossible. A creative artist, should be inconceivable that he will turn out to be a case of suicide. On the one hand he creates and on the other hand he is self-destructive. Many of them are drug addicts, many of them are drunkards, many of them are continuously doing things which can show much more than their paintings. For example, a millionaire was asking Picasso for two paintings, one for his sitting room, one for his bedroom. Picasso went in. His girlfriend and he never got married, and he has hundreds of girlfriends, changing almost every week. This type of man cannot be a man of love. It is just pure animal sexuality. The girlfriend went in with him and said, “But you don’t have two paintings ready.” He said, “Don’t be worried.” He cut one painting in two. The girlfriend said, “But the man will be able to see that.” Picasso said, “I cannot myself figure out that these are two paintings or one. I cannot figure out when I put my paintings in art galleries which way to hang them, which way is right side up.” Now these people may be creative, but their creativity cannot be called sane. And he sold those two paintings. And those two paintings exist as two paintings. Neither the owner understands what they mean. He asked Picasso what they mean. Picasso said, “I don’t know myself. When I was painting I knew something, but now it is long past and I have forgotten. But they must mean something.” The modern poetry, the modern drama, they all are in the same space. I want humanity to go forward. That does not mean that everything that has been in the past has to be dropped, because many things in the past has already gone far ahead of us. They are already in twenty-first century. So I am not saying save them from the past. I am saying they are already ahead of you. You go forward but make your creativity more meditative so that it becomes more saner and more healthy and helps people to understand beauty, meaning of life. It gives them something, some juice. I have not seen your paintings. Next time when you come, bring them so I can see whether they are sane or insane. But I would love to see them. I would love to show them to you. -OSHO The Last Testament Vol 03

Dear Sirs 'Disagreeing' occurs only on the foundation of 'Agreeing' something........and any 'agreeing' and 'disagreeing' is the stagnation in 'growth' and 'flow' and the existence is always in 'flow' and it is ever 'growing' phenomenon........nothing is fixed here, but everything is in flux here.....Any 'disagreeing and agreeing' has also its roots in something borrowed whether it is of Osho's, ours or cited from somewhere else.......but what we need to do is to go deeper and go beyond what we have already 'fixed' as our own opinions...... if the existence is 'growing' and 'flowing', it can't be an 'opinion'.....and if 'agreeing and disagreeing' is an 'opinion', it is not 'flowing' and 'growing', it is fixed, and not a 'flux'......we need to see the world in its multidimentionality and multiperceptivity that is most frequently term applied to Art which employs multiple narrators, often in opposition to each-other or to illuminate different perceptions of visualization, creating what is sometimes called a multiple narrative, or multi-narrative. Thanks and regards....

Osho, [size=150:2u7hb20a][i:2u7hb20a][b:2u7hb20a]You were vehement in criticizing people who have a tete-a-tete in a restaurant or have friendship; calling them idiots. But many of the world’s great thoughts are from people getting together even in the restaurants. For example, the French artists, impressionism, post-impressionism. I don’t think they are idiots. [/b:2u7hb20a][/i:2u7hb20a][/size:2u7hb20a] They are insane. They are not idiots. [i:2u7hb20a]That way I would say that Heretic like you, if I may use the term.[/i:2u7hb20a] Heretic is perfectly good. [i:2u7hb20a]But heretic also is an insane person.[/i:2u7hb20a] No. Heretic is never insane. [i:2u7hb20a] So Buddha was not insane? He was a heretic.[/i:2u7hb20a] Yes. He was not insane. He was heretic, but these impressionists are simply insane. They are not idiots. [i:2u7hb20a]I wouldn’t accept that. Excuse me.[/i:2u7hb20a] No, I am saying myself they are not idiots, because idiots cannot be insane. No idiot has ever been insane. For being insane you need certain intelligence and those impressionists have intelligence, but it has gone absolutely wrong. All their paintings are nothing but vomitings. They don’t have the beauty of a Taj Mahal. They don’t have the beauty of a Khajuraho. They don’t have the beauty of Leonardo da Vinci. They are just pouring their own insanity on the canvas, and if you look at their canvas long enough you will start feeling getting crazy, freaking out. Even a man like Picasso is not sane - very intelligent but not sane. The paintings show his mind. They are nightmarish. They don’t have the beauty of the classical art. It is just like jazz music, which is insane and cannot be compared to classical music. Classical music has tremendous sanity. It can make even an insane person sane. Just listening to classical music, he may calm down. But jazz - even a sane person may start feeling a jerk. All that has happened in the modern art, whether it is painting or music or poetry, it is great but yet it is not sane. The statues of Gautam Buddha - there are thousands in Thailand, in Japan, in China, In India. In China there is a temple which is called the Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas - ten thousand statues of Buddha. Perhaps it took three, four centuries to make it. The whole mountain has been carved. The whole mountain has become the temple. Just sitting there and you will feel a deep silence descending on you. Just looking at the statue of Buddha, you will feel inside you something settling. Those statues were created by meditators. They were not just artists. They were also meditators. The ancient music was not just music, it has come from the person’s inner experience. He has brought in music what he has felt in his silence. He has done a tremendous job to bring something from silence into sound, to translate silence into sound. But he managed. That was art, and sane art. My definition of sane art is that listening to it, looking at it, it gives you health, wholeness, silence, peace. Nietzsche in one of his diaries says that the most beautiful thing that he has seen in his life was a battalion marching. The sun was rising and the naked swords of the battalion shining in the sun, and their boots falling in tune. And Nietzsche says, “That music of their boots was the greatest music that I have heard. And the shining swords in the sun was the greatest scene that I have seen.” Now, this man is insane. The sound of the soldiers’ boots is music! It shows something about Friedrich Nietzsche, and it is natural that he became the guide of Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler worshipped him as his master. It is natural. This man is a genius, about that no doubt, perhaps the best genius of his century. But he is not sane. And Adolf Hitler following him, do you think is creating more music in the world? Creating more battalions and more boots and more sounds and more swords? Creating more beauty around? Modern mind has lost some quality. It has gained something, but it has lost something also. It has gained rationality but it has lost meditativeness. Rationality alone can end only in insanity. The highest peak of reason is insanity. You cannot go more than that. And the highest peak of meditation is silence. In silence also there is intelligence, but of a totally different kind: of creativity, of love, of compassion. And whatever comes out of that silence will help other people also. Just to listen to Mozart and one feels moving into some inner world. Looking at the paintings of the Middle Ages, one feels one has seen something which is still alive. Looking at the statues in Khajuraho, one feels as if the woman in the statue is just going to come out. She is so alive, and she is so beautiful. She is naked but it does not create sexuality in you. That’s strange. Utterly naked and utterly beautiful, but it does not create sexuality in you. You can see Khajuraho with your daughter without any problem. And all the statues are naked, all the statues are of lovemaking, but the people who have made those statues were not making them as pornography. They were making them for a totally different reason. They were changing pornography into art. And the modern artist is changing art into pornography. Hence I say they are insane. They are intelligent, very intelligent, but just intelligence does not mean anything. And as far as being a heretic is concerned, I consider it a compliment because Socrates was considered a heretic, Gautam Buddha was considered a heretic, Lao Tzu was considered a heretic. I would immensely enjoy to be in their company. Even if it means to be insane, I would still like to be heretic. -OSHO The Last Testament Vol 03

@Nevil Zaveri Sir There are some phases of time when circumstances make us feel dried up......and we get aflame in flames and burn in suffering knowing nothing of what this burning is...... When images are abstract, the titles also must be abstract I think...... Thanks and regards...
