OSHO on "Thinking"


When you think, what happens? When you think, you are closed. The present world drops away from you and you move on a dream path in your mind. One word creates another, one thought creates another, and you go on moving from one to the next, moving further and further away from existence. Thinking is a means of going away. It is a dream way; it is dreaming in concepts.

Come back down to earth. Be very earthly in this sense; not worldly, but very earthly, substantial. Come back to existence.

Life's problems can be solved only when you become deeply rooted in existence. Flying in thoughts, you move away from your roots, and the further away you are, the less likely it is that you will solve anything. Rather, you will confuse everything and everything will become more entangled. And the more entangled things are, the more you will think, and the further away you will move... Beware of thinking!
