‘ Love and hate are just two sides of the same coin. But with love something very drastic has happened. It is unimaginable how this drastic step was taken by people who had all the good intentions in the world. You may never have expected what has destroyed love. It is the continuous teaching of love that has destroyed it. Hate is still pure. Love is not. When you hate, your hate has an authenticity. When you love, it is only hypocrisy. This has to be understood. For thousands of years, all the religions, politicians, pedagogues have been teaching one thing, and that one thing is love. Love your enemy. Love your neighbour. Love your parents. Love God.
Why in the beginning did they start this strange series of teachings around love? They were afraid of your authentic love. Because authentic love is beyond your control. You are possessed by it. You are not the possessor, you are the possessed. And the society wants you to be under control. The society is afraid of your wild nature. It is afraid of your naturalness. So from the very beginning it starts cutting your wings. And the most basic thing that is dangerous in you is the possibility of love. Because if you are possessed by love, you can go even against the whole world.’  Osho
So through the teaching of love, we’re forced to try to love rather than letting it come to us naturally, making it lack in sincerity. Personally, I think he’s wrong about why the teachings of love originated – surely those with the full capacity to love authentically wanted to pass it on and teach it to others, rather than using it as a controlling device against us. Maybe it’s the absence of love,  derived from its teaching, that has become the controlling mechanism, and if so how do we rectify it?

Osho’s words has given a rather thought-provoking perspective on Love and Hate. Thank you for sharing.

To those who are/were unfortunately failed by Love and/or consumed by Hate, then there is still another way: “Laughter is the Best Medicine”.
