If we see life for just what it is.
Accept ups and downs.
Find joy in hobbies or small things.
Brings more joy.


I don’t follow these spiritual leaders they give quote after quote and attract all the knowledgeable people and create a huge difference in the society. I like the way we live normally and not too much sugar coating on life.


I don’t really agree with it.

A lot of people view Osho as a cult leader.

Him and his followers were all pretty nutty.


Maybe the AA prayer is better: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.


Hey @FreeLunch,

I’d love some input from you too :sunglasses:

OK only if you want to. :nerd_face:

Accepting something you don’t like isn’t joyful. It does mean you have attained a measure of serenity, and that’s okay. Also, Osho is nutty nutty cuckoo.


Yea even if he is a nutty cukoo, I do feel… Intrigued… By this quote

Yea I don’t know how universally true this quote is but for me personally it holds a limited but solid degree of truth to it.

Here’s another good quote for you:

“I know you are, but what am I?”

~ 10 year old Ozy



Haha, very mysterious quote…

Its too short of a quote to know the exact meaning that this guy was going for. But to me it sounds like not rejecting reality. Theres a thing ive been learning about in a dbt group called radical acceptance. Could be something like that.


I accepted an immense amount of food and got very sick. Someone didn’t know appropriate serving size and I was taught not to complain. Those days are over.

Never listen to others having my own differentiation of things is the best.

Anyways 98% of average information is taken from others and replicated.

Curious to know how many new words have been made. I think there is lots of different levels to differentiation.

Above which I don’t even know the meaning of joy.

Let me check …

Feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

Oops I need to follow standardization. Forget what I said above.
