1) Osho: Only a ripe fruit falls: One of the greatest problems...it will appear very paradoxical, but
this is true: before you can lose your ego, you must attain it. Only
a ripe fruit falls to the ground.
Ripeness is all. An unripe ego cannot be thrown, cannot be destroyed.
And if you struggle with an unripe ego to destroy and dissolve it,
the whole effort is going to be a failure. Rather than destroying it,
you will find it more strengthened in new subtle ways.
This is something basic to be understood: the ego must come to a
peak, it must be strong, it must have attained an integrity -- only
then can you dissolve it. A weak ego cannot be dissolved. And this
becomes a problem.
