OSHO.


Osho or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (1931–1990) was an Indian mystic, guru, philosopher, and founder of the Rajneesh movement.

In fact a mature person does not fall in love, he rises in love. The word ’fall’ is not right. Only immature people fall; they stumble and fall down in love. Somehow they were managing and standing. They cannot manage and they cannot stand – they find a woman and they are gone, they find a man and they are gone. They were always ready to fall on the ground and to creep. They don’t have the backbone, the spine; they don’t have that integrity to stand alone.

SOCIETAL.



Adj. of or relating to society or social relations.

There is no part of me that does not agree that technology has become a disgrace to the human relationship. The most obvious reason being that the majority of the population is typically glued to their smart phone; whether it be on any numerous social media apps or in a conversation through text. It isn't even unexpected to see someone walking while on face time these days. As of lately, I've become bothered when I am with someone, especially one on one, and they insist on verifying what may be waiting for them as a notification on their phone.

SUPERSTITION.


Noun: a widely held but unjustified belief in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event, or a practice based on such a belief.
Over two years ago while in Milan, every thirty feet or so I found myself confronted by an African man trying to present me with a "gift" from Africa; a braided thread bracelet. Once tied upon your wrist, they would then (of course) ask you for money. After forty-eight hours of avoidance, we were finally trapped. I took it as a sign, handed over some Euros and made a wish.
