The Christians say Jesus never laughed…..OSHO
The Christians say Jesus never laughed. Now this is utter nonsense!
I say to you that Christ laughed his whole life; only he can laugh. Who else?
But Christians say he never laughed.
They want to depict him very sad, very burdened. They project their sadness onto Jesus, they project their misery onto Jesus. Jesus becomes a screen, and you go on projecting your mind onto him.
Jesus laughed, enjoyed, loved. If you go into the Gospels without your prejudices, you will find it.
How can you think otherwise about a man who was having parties, eating well, moving with women, drinking — yes, wine was not unknown to him, he loved it.
He was a very very happy man.
A man who drinks, eats well, loves eating, loves friends — it is impossible to conceive that he never laughed.
But Christians have depicted Jesus according to their own projection.
The projection is of their misery. And then Jesus becomes just an excuse to be sad, to be miserable. That's why in the church there is no laughter, no joy, no celebration.
Churches have become graveyards.
And it is not accidental that the cross has become the symbol. It should not be the symbol.
