The dream part might interest some.

For the most part, I'm not drawn to women on the street. Here, Osho suggests this is good. Maybe a problem is that sometimes I don't notice them. I can't notice everything.

Thanks

Thanks Freedom,

The dream part did interest me. The connection to consciousness also intrigued me. It makes sense.

I do feel drawn to women I see on the street. Usually it is simply the way they look. I remind myself that the likelihood of them sharing my interest in a conscious/loving/healing approach to intimacy is very low. I'd be better off connecting with women who are more likely to share my interests. These days I look for the need in a woman and see if there is a way I can support her in filling it.

I read a really interesting introduction to Osho's book "Being in Love". 2008. Harmony books. In this introduction he mentions that there are three steps to experiencing Love: 1. Get rid of your parents' voices in your mind, 2. Be satisfied with ordinary people, and 3. Give without condition.

It's also online beginning at http://www.osho.com/library/online-library-deceiving-relevant-question-a... (the second question).

My parents voices would say: "Don't approach strangers". Women on the street are very ordinary people. Maybe simply pausing a moment or two to appreciate their physical beauty is an act of giving without condition. When I can keep my mind limited to that, I can let them go quite easily. It gets rougher when I long for more.

I do some of this already and

I do some of this already and will try more. Parental links are an issue for me. And yes, pausing, in general, lets me better appreciate what I'm looking at.

An easier to access alternate link (think it is the same). http://www.phys.uni-sofia.bg/~viktor/wisdom/osho/love.html The imperfection in the world makes me wonder why we spend the energy striving. We've set ourself up for misery.
