The journey starts, but never ends…..OSHO
IT HAS BEEN A YEAR NOW SINCE I HAVE TAKEN SANNYAS, BUT WHEN I HEAR YOU DESCRIBE WHAT A SANNYASIN IS, I DON'T FEEL LIKE ONE.
This is how a sannyasin is always expected to feel. Once you feel that you have arrived, you have already gone astray. The very feeling that one has arrived is. egoistic. One goes on learning and learning and learning, and it never becomes knowledge.
One goes on moving and moving, one comes closer and closer to the goal, but the goal is never achieved because the goal is infinite — it cannot be achieved, you cannot grab it.
If you are a real sannyasin, you will always be aware that much has to be done yet. You will never be satisfied. Life is so vast; only mediocre minds become satisfied. Life is so big; only small minds can think that they have attained. The more you understand, the more you will see that you don't understand. The more you know, the more you will know that you don't know.
The ultimate of knowledge is to become as ignorant as a small child, not knowing anything. In that innocence is the goal.
Remain always discontented; then you grow. Then growth knows no limits. To become a God is to go on growing. God is not a thing, it is an on-going process.
It is infinite movement. To become a God means: to realize that the existence goes on and on. It is a continuous discovery of new continents of being. And being is infinite, so it is not going to end any day. It is never going to end.
The journey starts, but never ends.
