Why did Osho not change the world?

Here I am looking at a quote I saw today by Osho:
“ Just one quality of the Buddha has to be remembered. He consists only of one quality, witnessing. This small word witnessing contains the whole of spirituality. Witness that you are not the body. Witness that you are not the mind. Witness that you are only a witness. As the witnessing deepens, you start becoming drunk with the divine. That is what is called ecstasy.”

Is this statement, are these words – practically lived and applied – of any real value in the service of all life on earth? In doing what is necessary to honor life and sort out this world, we require real, tangible, practical solutions as we are living in a very real, tangible world and society. So the question is: how does the acknowledgement and self creation as a spiritual being, as the soul, as a ‘witness’ actually practically support all life in serving as a real, applicable solution to sort out this world and the mess we have found ourselves in?

This is a quality of Buddha I would dare not trust, as for all that Buddha did in his lifetime, he did not make a difference in changing this world. I have lived in countries that are entirely Buddhist and they have lost themselves and become as enslaved as any other country in this world.

A statement such as this reeks of self interest and sensationalism. It is focused on self and attaining a particular desired experience for self and self only, as an energetic experience. It is not a real physical support such as for instance nourishing the body, or having a good dependable home, or having supportive education that enable one to live effectively in their world. As all spirituality has been, this is all in vain, it is a statement and ideology of vanity.

For as much as we would like to live in our delusions of grandeur, the fact of the matter is that: we are currently living and existing as the body within a physical reality, we are living in a self created identity called the mind (or consciousness). How can we ever hope to live in any real kind of bliss if we can not even understand and take into consideration ourselves and what we are? It may not be as pretty and beautiful as we would like things to be, but working with what is here is the actual key to creating a better life, and better world, in practically lived actions.

Let’s stop with our illusions of grandeur or love and light and spirituality and get down to the nitty gritty as it is required to truly create a better life and a better world for ALL.

    Completely agree with you. We must face the reality and be practical. Although, these religious principles will work only if every single human follows them. But thats completely hypothetical, given the nature of humans.

    • that will require extensive re-education and currently education and access to education is compromised by money and capitalism – an equal money system will allow all to be educated on how to live and effective life that is best for all
