Meditation doesn’t lead you to silence; meditation only creates the situation…OSHO
Meditation is just a situation; silence is not going to be the consequence of it.
No, meditation is just creating the soil, the surrounding, preparing the ground.
The seed is there, it is always there; you need not put in the seed, the seed has always been with you.
That seed is Brahma; that seed is atma. — that seed is you.
Just create the situation and the seed will become alive.
It will sprout and a plant will be born, and you will start growing.
Meditation doesn't lead you to silence; meditation only creates the situation in which the silence happens.
And this should be the criterion — that whenever silence happens laughter will come into your life. A vital celebration will happen all around.
You will not become sad, you will not become depressed, you will not escape from the world. You will be here in this world, but taking the whole thing as a game, enjoying the whole thing as a beautiful game, a big drama, no longer serious about it.
Seriousness is a diseas.
