We are strangers

You have to accept your aloneness, which in no way you can avoid. And there is no way to change its nature. It is your authentic reality. It is you. (Osho)

Seems like the words of the old spiritual are right on the money: “Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen …”

“Nobody knows you, not even you,” says Osho. “We are strangers” – to ourselves and to each other.

In another place, Osho asserts: “Your whole idea about yourself is borrowed – borrowed from those who have no idea of who they are themselves.”

Takes a bit of coming to terms with.
