Osho on “Devil”/”Lived”
The English word ‘devil’ is very beautiful. If you read it backwards it becomes ‘lived.’ That which is lived becomes divine, and that which is not lived becomes devil. Only the lived is transformed into godliness; the unlived turns poisonous. And today you postpone, and whatsoever remains unlived in you will hang around you like a weight. If you had lived it you would have been free of it. It would not have haunted you, it would not have tortured you.
