Trust in the total and this whole existence becomes a sheer celebration... ~OSHO~
THE SEARCH FOR TRUTH IS THE ONLY SEARCH THAT MAKES YOU AUTHENTICALLY HUMAN. Otherwise there is no difference between you and the animals. And the crowd remains at the level of the animals.
NEVER BELONG TO A CROWD; never belong to a nation; never belong to a religion; never belong to a race. Belong to the whole existence. Why limit yourself to small things? When the whole is available, only stupid people will cling to small things.
Only then you will have the taste of what true life is. AND A GREAT GRATITUDE ARISES.... on its own accord. Not towards anyone in particular, but just towards this WHOLE... all these stars, and the trees and the mountains and the rivers and the oceans and the people and the birds... all that is. You simply feel a tremendous gratitude.
AND WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR EYES WITH GRATITUDE, the same world becomes so psychedelically beautiful, so colorful -- you could never have believed that trees are so green; they have never been -- and these are the same trees! That the winds passing through the trees are creating such subtle music -- they have always been creating, but you were deaf. That sunsets and sunrises and the tremendous beauty they bring... you had been missing because you were blind.
Your trust in the total opens all your sensitivities to their extreme. And this whole existence becomes a sheer dance, a sheer celebration.
