The Fear of Intimacy


The Hidden Splendor, Discourse 4

Everybody is afraid of intimacy. It is another thing whether you are aware of it or not.Intimacy means exposing yourself before a stranger. We are all strangers -- nobody knows anybody. We are even strangers to ourselves, because we don't know who we are.

Intimacy brings you close to a stranger. You have to drop all your defenses; only then, intimacy is possible. And the fear is that if you drop all your defenses, all your masks, who knows what the stranger is going to do with you? –Osho

Osho also answers another question: "EVERYBODY AROUND IS BLISSING OUT AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IT IS NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I WANT TO FEEL YOU AGAIN AND GET LOST. RIGHT NOW, THE CONNECTION IS LIKE A FRAGILE, THIN THREAD FELT IN SOME RARE SILENT MOMENTS OR SHOWN BY MY TEARS. I'M STILL FULL OF FEAR AND ALSO GETTING OLDER. YOU GAVE ME THE NAME PRAVIRA -- DO I STILL HAVE A CHANCE THIS LIFETIME?"
