From _The White Lotus_, by Osho :

Subject: From _The White Lotus_, by Osho (Bhagwan Sri Rajneesh):

A frank female rebel named Glutz
Disdained any ifs, ands, or buts;
When they asked what she'd need
To be totally freed
Of her hang-up, her answer was, "Nuts!"

Everybody is in need of nuts, because everybody is nuts.  Mad people
are in need of other mad people, because only mad people can support
your illusions.  You support their illusions, they support your illusions.
That is what is called friendship, love, companionship in the ordinary
world:  'A friend in need is a friend indeed'.  And when is the need? -
when your illusions start disappearing he helps you to hold, to cling
hard to them.  He does not allow you to let go of your illusions.
Whatsoever happens, he helps you to remain the same as you have always
been.  He does not allow you to change.

Life is trying to change you every moment, but you have so many friends,
protectors. parents, teachers, and your family.  The whole management
of the government, the church, is such that it helps you to remain as
you are.  It is the great conspiracy to keep people dreaming, because
nobody wants you to be awake.  It is dangerous, because any people who
have ever become awakened have always proved dangerous to the status
quo, to the established church, state, society - to the establishment
as such.  The awakened people have always proved a kind of nuisance,
because they start helping other people to become awake.
