One day Shunyo reminded me, "Your watch... it is seven and your watch is saying four." I said, "It does not matter." As my days are becoming fewer and fewer on this earth, NOTHING MATTERS EXCEPT ONE THING: THAT I SHOULD POUR MYSELF INTO YOU as much as possible.
TOMORROW I MAY NOT BE HERE, so I should complete the celebration today. Tomorrow you may have to celebrate alone.
The whole credit goes to Ronald Reagan. Poisoning me he has taken away from you at least twenty years of my life. I am fighting with the poison and it has been a good challenge for me, but for you it can be a loss any moment. I am just living on the fringe.
So when I go to sleep I say good-bye to the world, because I don't know for certain that tomorrow morning I will wake up. When I wake up I am amazed that there is ONE MORE DAY, one more celebration, one more day to laugh with my people, to be part of their silences, TO HAVE MY HEART BEAT WITH THEIR HEARTS.
LOOKING AT THE WATCH has become irrelevant. I go on wearing the watch so that you don't become afraid. Because if I don't wear the watch, you can be certain that my time is up. —OSHO—
