It is only when the spring of love has come that one starts blooming. ….OSHO
It is only when the spring of love has come that one starts blooming.
Without love, all that is significant starts dying.
Without love, the soul remains unnourished.
Just as the body needs food, the soul needs love; and just as the body can be healthy and blooming and radiant, the soul can be.
The radiance of the soul, the flowering of the soul, the health of the soul, is what I mean by flowering.
And when one has come to flower in the innermost core of one's existence, one knows who one is. That knowing triggers an infinite sequence of knowing; then one goes on knowing more and more about the mysteries of life and death.
Just open the first door of self-knowledge… and many doors start opening on their own.
But self-knowing is possible only when we nourish our being with love. So
Love as much as you can, don't be afraid of love.
When it knocks on your doors, receive it; and whenever you can share, share it.
Take as much as possible and give as much as possible.
This is my basic message: love is my religion.
