Life consists of small things, and you have to transform each small thing through your awareness…OSHO
There is no logical proof for God, but when you are overflowing with joy, when you can dance with joy, in that dance a gratitude arises on its own accord. A thankfulness, a prayer, is born, and in that prayer you are reborn. In that prayer not only are you reborn, God is born too.
Life consists of small things, and you have to transform each small thing through your awareness, watchfulness, alertness, into a beautiful act. Then ordinary things can become extraordinary.
A Zen monk was asked, "What did you use to do before you became enlightened?"
He said, "I used to chop wood and carry water from the well."
And then he was asked, "What do you do now you have become enlightened?"
He said, "I chop wood and carry water from the well."
The questioner was puzzled. He said, "There seems to be no difference then."
The master said, "The difference is in me. The difference is not in my acts, the difference is in me — but because I have changed, all my acts have changed. Their significance has changed: the prose has become poetry, the stones have become sermons, and matter has completely disappeared. Now there is only God and nothing else. Life now is liberation to me, it is nirvana."
