This life is a gift from existence, to be lived and enjoyed. But with the seemingly impossible and conflicting demands of society, morality, and culture, people struggle with feelings of unfulfilled potential, frustration, and guilt rather than living full lives.
The world of tantra has no division between higher and lower. The simple, ordinary things of life are transformed into great things when we enter into them totally – be it car fixing, floor cleaning, or lovemaking. Osho shows how, by living this vision, new heights of consciousness and freedom are realized.
“The days of tantra are coming. Sooner or later tantra will explode for the first time in the masses, because for the first time the time is ripe – ripe to take sex naturally. One thing to be remembered always: If you are not very alert, you may go on believing that you are moving into tantra, and you may be simply rationalizing your sexuality – it may be nothing but sex rationalized in the terminology of tantra. If you move into sex with awareness, it can turn into tantra. If you move into tantra with unawareness, it can fall and become ordinary sex.” (See also Tantric Transformation by Osho – part of the same series.)
