Do you know what love is, that you are afraid that love will be lost? (OSHO)

Do you know what love is, that you are afraid that love will be lost? (OSHO)

“Do you know what love is, that you are afraid that love will be lost?” People go on imagining things…

In a court there was a case. Two friends, old friends, had beaten each other very badly. They were brought into the court. The magistrate could not believe it. It was a small place — everybody knew that those two persons were always together and they were great friends. He asked, “What happened? What caused the fight?”

One said to the other, “You tell it.” The other said, “No, you tell it.”

The magistrate said, “Anybody can tell it. There is no question of etiquette, of who should tell it first. But let me know.” But both were silent. The magistrate had to be hard. He said, “Speak or I will throw you into jail.”

Then one said, “It is so embarrassing. In fact we both were sitting on the sands by the side of the river, and my friend said that he is going to purchase a buffalo. “I said, `You drop that idea, because your buffalo can enter into my farm and that will be the end of our friendship. I will kill the buffalo.’

“My friend said, `You have some nerve! I am perfectly free to purchase one buffalo or ten buffaloes. And buffaloes are buffaloes — sometimes they may enter into your field. And I will see what you do: if you can kill my buffalo, I can burn your whole crop.'”

One thing led to another. Finally, the man who had the farm drew a picture of the farm on the sand with his finger and said, “This is my farm. Let your buffalo enter into it and I will show you.”

And he said, “Your honor, this man, with his fingers, brought five buffaloes into my field, and said to me, `Now do what you want to do.’ “Then we started beating each other — because there was no buffalo, there was no farm; so I could not beat his buffaloes, he could not burn my farm. We are very embarrassed, that’s why we were insisting,

`You tell.'”

The magistrate said, “This is sheer stupidity! He has not purchased the buffalo yet; your farm is empty, you have not shown the seed yet — and you both have fractures.”

You ask me, “When the mind is transcended, when emotions, sentiments, feelings, are transcended, will I have to lose my love too?” Do you have it? First purchase the buffalo!
