Osho On Terrorism

Amrit Sadhana

I often wonder, why someone finds pleasure in destroying something beautiful ? What could be the state of mind that chooses death over life? Can destruction be ultimately successful over creation?
Would like to share some of the Osho insights in this regard:
Osho says, " Terrorism is not an argument, it is a defeat."
The terrorists are defeated people. Defeated by whom? By themselves. These people have lost the battle of life and therefore can't see others living happily.
Another Osho insight digs even deeper into this phenomenon:
" If we can clean the basement of the human mind's unconscious... and that's what my work is. It can be cleaned away. The terrorism is not in the bombs, in your hands; the terrorism is in your unconscious.
"Otherwise, this state of affairs is going to grow more bitter. And it seems all kinds of blind people have bombs in their hands and are throwing them at random.
The third world war would have released people for ten or, fifteen years. But the third world war cannot happen because if it happens it won't relieve people, it will only destroy people.
"So individual violence will increase -- it is increasing. And all your governments and all your religions will go on perpetuating the old strategies without understanding the new situation.
"The new situation is that every human being needs to go through therapies, needs to understand his unconscious intentions, needs to go through meditations so that he can calm down, become cool -- and look towards the world with a new perspective, of silence."
