‘Are there ghosts, fairies, and things like that ?’ …OSHO
Just the other day somebody asked, 'Are there ghosts, fairies, and things like that?'
Yes, there are — if you move through the right-hemisphere brain, there are. If you move through the left-hemisphere brain, there are not.
All children are right-hemisphered, they see ghosts and fairies all around, but you go on talking to them and putting them in their places and saying to them, 'Nonsense. You are stupid. Where is the fairy? There is nothing, just a shadow.'
By and by you convince the child, the helpless child; by and by you convince him and he moves from the right-hemisphered orientation to the left-hemisphered orientation — he has to. He has to live in your world: he has to forget his dreams, he has to forget all myth, he has to forget all poetry, he has to learn mathematics.
Of course he becomes efficient in mathematics — and becomes almost crippled and paralyzed in life. Existence goes on getting farther and farther away and he becomes just a commodity in the market, his whole life becomes just rubbish… although, of course, valuable in the eyes of the world.?
