Today, I pulled a card; it hit me with a collision like only Osho can. I asked for guidance in purpose, in reasoning; in myself.
Inward and ahead
these are the cobblestones I have crafted
my valour only as strong as my foundation
this is my inbound odyssey
and I smile
“just because it’s in your imagination doesn’t make it any less real”
the scent of a nomad
the sonance of his wings – migrant in purpose
the thousand mile focus
to a so-called illusionary horizon
and I smile
“You are not accidental. Existence needs you. Without you something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it. That’s what gives you dignity, that the whole existence will miss you. The stars and sun and moon, the trees and birds and earth–everything in the universe will feel a small place is vacant which cannot be filled by anybody except you.
This gives you a tremendous joy, a fulfillment that you are related to existence, and existence cares for you. Once you are clean and clear, you can see tremendous love falling on you from all dimensions.
This naked figure sits on the lotus leaf of perfection, gazing at the beauty of the night sky. She knows that “home” is not a physical place in the outside world, but an inner quality of relaxation and acceptance. The stars, the rocks, the trees, the flowers, fish and birds–all are our brothers and sisters in this dance of life.
We human beings tend to forget this, as we pursue our own private agendas and believe we must fight to get what we need. But ultimately, our sense of separateness is just an illusion, manufactured by the narrow preoccupations of the mind.
Now is the time to look at whether you are allowing yourself to receive the extraordinary gift of feeling “at “home” wherever you are.
If you are, be sure to take time to savour it so it can deepen and remain with you. If on the other hand you’ve been feeling like the world is out to get you, it’s time to take a break. Go outside tonight and look at the stars.
Thanks Osho, you wise ol’ bastard.
