I am one with all things-
in beauty, in ugliness,
for whatsoever is-
there I am.
Not only in virtue
but in sin too I am a partner,
Not only in heaven
but hell too is mine.
Buddha, Jesus, Loa Tzu -
it is easy to be their heir,
but Genghis, Taimur and Hitler?
They are also within me!
No, not half- I am the whole of mankind!
Whatsoever is man's is mine -
flowers and thorns,
darkness as well as light,
and if nectar is mine, whose is poison?
nectar and poison - both are mine.
Whoever experiences this
I call religious,
for only the anguish of such experience
can revolutionize life on earth.
one type of creator works with objects;
a poet, a painter, they work with objects,
they create things.
The other type of creator, the mystic,
creates himself, he works with the subject;
he works on himself, his own being.
And he is the real creator, the real poet,
because he makes himself into
Just our being here is such a miracle.
It cannot be explained why I am here, why you are here.
Why these trees are here, why these stars are here.
Why at all this universe exists, and goes on peopling itself
with trees and birds and people.
Why in the first place it is there, there is no way to know.
It simply is there. But it inspires awe!
It fills the heart with wonder.
It is incredible!
It is absurd, but tremendously beautiful.
Remember one principle:
whatever happens is somehow needed,
whether we understand it or not...
Osho: Uruguay Talks: "The Path of the Mystic"
Truths will give you a rebirth.
We are just pregnant for centuries and centuries,
and lives and lives, and the birth has not happened.
We are just pregnant, just a seed,
because no one is ready to pay the price.
And before one comes to that bliss which is our seeking,
one has to pass through a deep suffering.
That suffering is a must.
That is the birth pain you cannot escape it.
Osho: "That Art Thou"
There is nothing to worry about;
all is taken care of. Live with that trust.
As the river finds the ocean,
thirsty souls find the temple of God.
But the thirst must be intense
and the work tireless
and the waiting without end
and the calling with the whole heart.
Whatever you have become,
however far you have gone
from your natural potential,
it does not matter.
Your Buddha remains within you.
You can come back home any moment
you decide with totality and utter urgency.
Nothing can prevent you.
The way of the heart is the way of courage.
It is living in insecurity;
it is to live in love, and trust;
it is to move into the unknown;
it is leaving the past and allowing the now to be.
Trust in matter and you will live in hell.
Trust in consciousness
and you have the key to open the doors
of the Kingdom of God.
