A man who has come to a unity within himself is capable of understanding the mystery of existence….OSHO

A man who has come to a unity within himself is capable of understanding the mystery of existence....

To me, that is the only prayer: to become aware of the miraculous, the mysterious that surrounds us.

And only a man who has come to a unity within himself is capable of understanding the mystery of existence.
OSHO

 

One who is not whole is not holy either.

 My basic approach is: I am not against the body, I am not against the mind;

I am all for a unity, a symphony, a synchronicity amongst these three spheres.

 

And a man will be fulfilled only, complete only, when all three are functioning in total harmony.

 

In the East, the body has been so much condemned that the ultimate result is poverty — no science, no technology, a poor, hungry body; starved, condemned, neglected.

 

And in the West, the result has been a healthy body, an evolved technology, richer literature, art, all for the nourishment of the mind, but a poor soul, almost nonexistential.

 

This is a strange tragedy.

The West is suffering from a poor soul, and the East is suffering from a poor body and a poor mind.

 

My suggestion to you is that the work for the future humanity, for a new man, is to drop the old conditioning –

of the East, and of the West. Drop all antagonism, either of the spiritualist or of the materialist.

 

Accept the realistic approach that existence is both — matter on the outside and spirit on the inside.

And in between the two is the bridge of the mind.

In a miniature form, the same is true about every human being.

The new man will come out of this unity.

 

A man who rejoices in his body and the wisdom of the body, a man who uses his mind as a tremendously significant mechanism that evolution has brought, and a man who does not stop at mind but goes on searching beyond, into the realms of divineness, into the realms of godliness — to produce this man should be the effort of all those who are in some way concerned with educating the new generation.

 

The educationists, the journalists, the spiritual teachers — all people who are involved in some way in creating a better human being than has been possible in the past — have to accept the totality of man without rejecting anything.

 

Journalists can do a tremendous service to humanity if their minds are clear, if they are not themselves prejudiced, either in favor of spiritualism or in favor of materialism.

 

A journalist has to be of an open mind, receptive to all kinds of possibilities.

He has to be a seeker and a searcher and an agnostic; he has not to be a believer.

The moment you believe in something, you start enforcing your belief, whether it is right or wrong.

 

The journalist has to be open to all dimensions, ready to accept anything that is going to beautify existence and make man more blissful, more healthy, more intelligent, more aware of the tremendous mystery that surrounds us.

 

To me, that is the only prayer: to become aware of the miraculous, the mysterious that surrounds us.

And only a man who has come to a unity within himself is capable of understanding the mystery of existence.
