Love is something beyond the body.Bodies come and go, love remains. …….OSHO
If you have loved me, I will live for you forever. In your love I will live. If you ave loved me, my body will disappear but I cannot die for you. But I can assert much nonsense because I know your love: I trust it.
When a master says, "Don't go to anybody; cling to me. Even when I am gone, go on continuously with me. don't move anywhere" — that simply means he does not trust you. He is afraid, he has doubts — he knows that once he is gone, you will be gone. In fact, he knows that even while he is alive, you will be gone.
He protects; he says, "Don't go to anybody else. I am the only one." He is very monopolistic. He is so doubtful, that his marriage with his disciples is a sort of monogamy. He's afraid. He is afraid because the divorce is possible — he is afraid of it, and wants to protect in every way so that it is not going to happen.
He will say, "Never worship anybody, never love anybody, never revere anybody, never listen to anybody, never go to anybody — just look at me, and forget the whole world. Exclusively love me."
I don't say that to you. I know: even if I am gone, I know you will search for me. Yes, I can trust you will hunt for me in every stone and flower, in every eye and star….
And I can promise you one thing: if you hunt for me, you will find me… in every star and in every eye… because if you have really loved a master, you have moved into eternity with him. The relationship is not of time, it is timeless.
There is going to be no death. My body will disappear, your body will disappear — that will not make any change. If the disappearance of the body makes any change, that simply shows that love had not happened.
Love is something beyond the body. Bodies come and go, love remains. Love has eternity in it — timelessness, deathlessness.
