Pass through the storm and allow a real silence to come….OSHO
The flowering of your being will happen only when real silence has happened to you, never before.
You cannot force the flower to open.
It opens by itself. You cannot force your being to open; there is no possibility of it.
You cannot rape it, you cannot be violent toward it.
It will simply be destroyed.
The flower opens by itself.
The only soil needed is authentic, real, spontaneous silence.
With a cultivated silence the flower will never open.
With cultivated silence you will simply become dull.
Your being will be less alive, that's all.
With less life you will be in less trouble.
That's okay, but remember that trouble is a training.
You should not try to have less troubles.
Be with your troubles and move through them.
Don't leave them, don't escape from them.
A moment will come when you have gone beyond them,
but that moment always comes from passing through them.
Pass through the storm and allow a real silence to come.
Then your being will flower, not till then.
