To say yes is to be religious. Yes is the most sacred word….OSHO
Life ordinarily prepares us to only say no. Life goes on corrupting our minds and creating doubts. Because of those doubts and because of those no's and the negatives, one becomes enclosed, one lives in a kind of imprisonment, a China Wall surrounds one. That wall is invisible, transparent, so you don't know that it is there, but it is always there.
Once you say yes it starts disappearing.
To say yes is to be religious. Yes is the most sacred word.
Yes means everything. It is always, it is forever. One single yes is enough. It should be intense, it should be total.
And if you understand me, and some day you will understand me, if you can say yes without even using the word 'yes' then it is the uttermost in prayer. One word is more than enough; no word is the ultimate. Just a yes attitude, a climate of yes… not a verbalization but a heart full of yes. Not something in the head but in the very bones and the marrow.
When you can say a total yes, the being starts becoming a flame. The being immediately flashes into a flame. It is exactly as if you bring a small flame into oxygen and it flares up. The moment you say yes your being flares up and becomes a great flame.
Sannyas is nothing but a sacred yes.
