Osho Quotes: Man is born in slavery
MAN IS BORN IN SLAVERY
“Man is born in slavery. We are born as slaves to ourselves. We come into this world imprisoned in chains of desires, held tight by those subtle chains.
And only someone who struggles and strives for it will find it. For freedom, a price has to be paid. Nothing of value in life is ever free. This slavery which nature gave you is not a misfortune; it would be a misfortune only if we fail to win our freedom. There is nothing wrong to be a slave, but it is definitely wrong to die as one. Unless you find inner freedom, nothing in life will have any meaning or fulfillment. You may have been given life, but if you remain trapped in a prison of desires, if you never know the free sky of awareness, then you will never know life. There is no difference at all between someone imprisoned in desires and a bird imprisoned in a cage. You only enter the world of real life when your awareness is free from desires.
If you want to know truth, become a master of yourself. Victory over truth is not for someone who is defeated by their own self”
“Life is a soap bubble” Osho
