More wisdom from Osho on Buddha, regarding living in the moment with consciousness

I’m “fired up” about what I’m getting from this book by Osho this morning. It is called “Buddha, his life and teachings”) Just now, I read that we often only become fully conscious in the moment when our very life is at risk. Sometimes, that is the ony situation than can flush out all those other nagging thoughts.
This rather reminds me of all those fundamental Christian sermons I’ve heard, teaching that sometimes “bad things” happen to slow us down and wake us up.
The example used is what would happen if my house was suddenly on fire. It’s a pretty good bet all other thoughts not absolutely pertinent to the moment would vanish.
Can I live as if my house is on fire? Can I Live as if the only thing worth saving is My life, my consciousness, my Soul Essence? Would living this way drive me crazy or sane?
It would certainly put the petty in it’s place.
Something to ponder…..
