If you’ve never heard of Osho… clear the way! This man is a force of nature, and the influence of his teachings has touched countless souls of those seeking ways to be in the world most authentically.

Today I’d like to share with you Osho’s Five Obstacles to Living a Creative, Free, Abundant Life, followed by his Four Keys to Unlocking that Creative, Free, Abundant Energy.

Here we go!

The Five Obstacles



1) Self-Consciousness


Osho considers Self-Consciousness a disease.

Self-consciousness interrupts the naturally flowing energy of life and creates a stubborn block between you and existence. Instead of living purely, you are censoring and hesitating. You are overly anxious of your sense of separation from everything.

The cure? Consciousness.

Consciousness is a gift—an awakening. Consciousness has no idea of “I” of “Ego”, no idea of separation from existence. It knows no barriers or boundaries. It is a deep at one-ness with all of life. To be truly conscious is to be truly alive. It is to smile with a Buddha’s smile.

The Buddha’s Smile

-the smile of coming home
-the smile that one has arrived
-the smile that now there is no longer anywhere to go
-the smile that one has reached the source
-the smile that one has died and is resurrected

I always describe it as a feeling of, “This is how it’s supposed to be.”

There is no censorship or hesitation. You are simply, purely, beautifully living in harmony.


2) Perfectionism


Watch me perfectly-imperfectly leave this description blank.


3) Intellect


Osho says, “The intellect carries libraries in his head, a great burden, but he has no vision. He has already arrived to conclusions. He is carrying ready-made answers. The questions that life raises are always new.”

Note: this does not mean you need to lose all the information you have gathered over the course of your life, but rather, file it away in your Mind for whenever you need to call upon it to come to your aid–but don’t let your facts, figures, and history rule you! Go forth open and empty! Allow space to just Be. Access that faucet of intellect only when necessary. True intelligence is constant awakening, not clinging to conclusions.


4) Belief


According to Osho, belief is always closed, finished; it has run its course. Experience, on the other hand, remains unfinished and ever new. If you want to truly learn something, go forth open and empty.

“Sooner or later a day comes when you look and you don’t have any mind. You are not looking for anything. You are simply looking. Your look is pure. In that moment you become Avalokita, one who looks with pure eyes.” ~Osho


5) The Fame Game


“If you want fame, just practice and become skilled, technically. People will understand it; it is already accepted. But technical perfection is perfection of the past. Everybody has been educated to understand that point.” ~Osho

The real creators, according to Osho, bring forth something entirely new into the world. (see ‘Be a Dreamer’ below.)

The Four Keys


1) Become a child again!


Creativity needs freedom from the Mind, from knowledge, and from prejudices. A creative person must try new ways (including trying wrong ways!) because the already established ‘right ways’ are the ways already discovered by others. They are no longer creative. They are simply efficient.

The creator cannot be efficient. She must go on experimenting.


2) Be Ready to Learn


Osho defines real discipline as the process of being ready to learn. The real man of discipline never accumulates; each moment he dies to whatsoever he had come to know, and he again becomes ignorant. That ignorance is luminous.


3) Find Nirvana in the Ordinary


“The greatest human beings are beyond humiliation.” ~Osho

Life consists of small things. It is just your ego that goes on saying they are ‘small things’—that you must do something great. Drop your ego and everything is great, every little thing. The greatness is not in the thing done/achieved—the greatness is in the consciousness that you bring while you are doing it.


4) Be a Dreamer


I love this passage by Osho. “The creative person is one who brings something from the unknown into the world of the known, who brings something from God into the world—who helps God utter something. Only fragments can be brought, but when you bring some fragments from the unknownable you transform the whole quality of human consciousness on earth.”

Amen to that!
