The other 'Ten Commandments'

Rajneesh   (Fair Use)
Shree Rajneesh, also known as “Osho,” made quite a few headlines in his day.  Rajneesh is once again in the news because his celebrity disciple, Bollywood’s Vinod Khanna, recently died.

Although Rajneesh was not big on spiritual laws, he playfully came up with what has been called his “Ten Commandments.”  Wikipedia lists them all: 

1.  Never obey anyone's command unless it is coming from within you also.   2.  There is no God other than life itself.   3.  Truth is within you, do not search for it elsewhere.   4.  Love is prayer.        5.  To become a nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness itself is the means, the goal and attainment.   6.  Life is now and here.   7.  Live wakefully.   8.   Do not swim - float.  9.  Die each        moment so that you can be new each moment.   10.  Do not search. That which is, is. Stop and see.                                                                                               
For those who like to cherry-pick their commandments, bear in mind that Rajneesh especially recommended numbers 3, 7, 9 and 10.
