Osho on Qualities of the Female Mind

Question: Can you talk further about the Qualities of the Female Mind?
Osho : The feminine mind has both qualities, the negative and the positive. The positive is love, the negative is jealousy; the positive is sharing, the negative is possessiveness; the positive is waiting, the negative is lethargy, because waiting can look as if it is waiting and it may not be, it may be just lethargy.

And the same happens with the male mind: the male mind has a positive quality that he inquires, goes in search, and a negative quality that he always doubts. Can you be an inquirer without doubt? Then you have chosen the positive.

But you can also be a doubtful man without inquiring, just sitting and doubting. Another positive quality of man is that he is in search of rest, and a negative quality that he is restless. Just because he is restless, there is no need for him to get identified with it.

You can use your restlessness as a jumping-board to attain a restful repose. You have an energy, an urge to do something -- you can use that urge to become a non-doer, you can use that urge to be a meditator. The negative has to be used in the service of the positive, and each has both.

Wherever there is a positive quality, just by the side exists the negative. If you pay too much attention to the negative you will miss; pay much attention to the positive and you will attain. And male or female, both have to do that. Then happens the most beautiful phenomenon in the world.

That phenomenon is an indivisible person, a one, a unity, an inner cosmos; a symphony where all the notes have become helpers to each other, not just a noise, but they give rhythm, color to the whole. They make the whole, they create the whole, they are not against the whole, they are not fragments anymore, they have fallen into a unity.
