Everything is controlled by the followers, and the followers are controlled by the master..OSHO
People have been demanding, according to their conditioning, how the master should be: what he should eat, what he should wear, how he should speak, what he should speak about.
Everything is controlled by the followers, and the followers are controlled by the master — a mutual arrangement of enslaving each other and enjoying a beautiful feeling that you are on the path of spirituality.
I had to fight my way continuously, because people started gathering around me and then immediately they would start expecting.
If I refused them, I was not a saint; they disappeared.
If I had accepted their ideas, they would have been my slaves for their whole lives… and strange ideas, which have no relationship at all as far as spiritual growth is concerned.
