God is such a mystery … OSHO

God is such a mystery ...

 

God is such a mystery — or call it life, or existence — life is such a mystery that even if you enter into the innermost shrine of it you will not be able to believe it. It is unbelievably true. It is incredible.

I was reading a poem of Leopold Staff.

 

The Bridge

 

I DIDN'T BELIEVE,

STANDING ON THE BANK OF A RIVER

WHICH WAS WIDE AND SWIFT,

THAT I WOULD CROSS THAT BRIDGE

PLAITED FROM THIN, FRAGILE REEDS

FASTENED WITH BAST.

I WALKED DELICATELY AS A BUTTERFLY

AND HEAVILY AS AN ELEPHANT,

I WALKED SURELY AS A DANCER

AND WAVERED AS A BLIND MAN.

I DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT I WOULD CROSS THAT BRIDGE,

AND NOW THAT I AM STANDING ON THE OTHER SIDE,

I DON'T BELIEVE I CROSSED IT.

 

Even when you have known God, you will not be able to believe that you have known Him. That is what I mean when I say God is a mystery. Unknown, He remains unknowable. Known also, He remains unknowable. Unseen, He is a mystery; seen He becomes an even greater mystery. It is not a problem that you can solve. It is bigger than you. You can dissolve into it — you cannot solve it.
