The Art of Living and Dying

The Art of Living and Dying by Osho

By: Osho

Book Overview: Why are we afraid of death? Should we tell someone they are dying? Is reincarnation true? With depth, clarity, compassion, and even humor, Osho answers the questions we all have about this most sacred of mysteries and offers practical guidance for meditation and support. He reveals not only that our fear of death is based on a misunderstanding, but that dying is an opportunity for inner growth. When life is lived consciously and totally, death is not a catastrophe but a joyous climax.

“The fear of death is fear of time.  And the fear of time is, deeply down, fear of unlived moments, of an unlived life.  So what to do?  Live more, and live more intensely.  Live dangerously.  It is your life.  Don’t sacrifice it for any sort of foolishness that has been taught to you.  It is your life: Live it!  Don’t sacrifice it for words, theories, countries or politics.  Don’t sacrifice it for anybody.  Live it!  Don’t think that it is courageous to die.  The only courage is to live life totally; there is no other courage.” ~ Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

“The fear is not of death, the fear is of time, and if you look deeply into it then you find that the fear is of an unlived life – you have not been able to live.  If you live, then there is no fear.  If life comes to a fulfillment there is no fear.  If you have enjoyed, attained the peaks that life can give – if your life has been an orgasmic experience, a deep poetry vibrating within you, a song, a festival, a ceremony, and you lived each moment of it to its totality – then there is no fear of time.  Then the fear disappears.” ~ Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

“If you have not lived rightly, you will not be able to die rightly.  Death is the final offering.  It is the highest; it is the crowning or the peak.  Death is the essence and the flowering of life.  How can your death be right if you have spent your life wrongly?  How can your death be full of meaning if your life has been a waste?  How can a tree whose roots are rotten bear sweet fruit?  It is impossible.” ~ Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

“After a medical examination, your doctor calls and says you have a rare lymphatic cancer and only a month to live.  A week later, she informs you that the lab test was wrong and you’re perfectly healthy.  Do you think the insights from having to face death this way would be worth the pain? …What life changes do you think a close brush with death might provoke for you?” ~ Gregory Stock, The Book of Questions
