Unless you have lived your life, you cannot move into religion…OSHO
People who don't have any sense of religiousness, they also become greedy about religion. And now he is getting old, and death is approaching. Now he wants to achieve something which he can carry beyond death. He is simply afraid. He has not lived his life — and unless you have lived your life, you cannot move into religion.
Only one who lives his life truly, one day comes to the point where a new desire for life beyond arises. See the difference between the two. You can be afraid of death; then your desire will be false.
If you have lived life and loved life, and loved it so much that you would now like to know the unknown life also — it is not out of fear of death, it is out of love for life — then, you will recognize immediately whenever you come across an enlightened person. It is impossible to miss. You will recognize immediately. This recognition needs no knowledge. It will simply happen.
