Such a beautiful world, such a beautiful morning, such beautiful clouds…what else do you need to celebrate?…OSHO
Once you start enjoying the small pleasures, the total cumulative effect is a great bliss in your being.
This has to be understood. Don't wait for some great bliss to descend on you. It never happens.
Great bliss is nothing but small pleasures accumulating in your being.
The total of all the small pleasures is the great bliss.
Eating, enjoy it. Drinking, enjoy it. Taking a bath, enjoy it. Walking, enjoy it.
Such a beautiful world, such a beautiful morning, such beautiful clouds…what else do you need to celebrate? The sky full of stars…
what more do you need to be prayerful?
The sun rising from the east…what more do you need to bow down?
And amidst a thousand and one thorns a small roseflower arises, opening its buds, so fragile, so vulnerable, yet so strong, so ready to fight with the wind, with the lightning, with the thunderings. Look at the courage…what more do you need to understand trust?
Techniques are needed when you have missed these small openings towards God.
If you go on looking in the small openings, the total effect is a great-door. And suddenly you start seeing what prayer is. Not only seeing, you start living it.
If you plan for every possibility, if you manage for everything on your own, you never give a chance to God to penetrate you, to take control onto his shoulders.
You never allow God to help you. You think you have to be independent; you think there is no other way than self-help. You remain unnecessarily poor.
