I have had my Osho phase too. Over for me now.
There's two issues here...The source of the unhappiness and the symptoms.
It's like the flu...you've got the cause and the symptoms.
Misused drugs, alcohol, sex all treat the symptom called unhappiness but don't treat the virus, so time and time again, these drugs must be consumed to get relief from the symptoms.
Hope and dreams also treat the symptoms but like any drug, the dosage has to be increased to keep the same effect.
Osho works on the virus, not the symptoms. Organized religions and drug dealers work on the symptoms and not the virus.
You missed that, I guess?
The virus is any idea of life that we've made into a habitual thought. That becomes a mental prison of ongoing confusion. The symptom is unhappiness, depression, anxiety and so on. The escapes are everywhere....most of the economy is merely a marketplace of elixirs, including organized religion.
Unhappy with your sorry life? Good, we offer this savior to you in exchange for your belief and financial support.
