Then all struggle disappears, all conflict. You simply start enjoying life as it comes, as it unfolds. You enjoy the childhood, you enjoy the youth, you enjoy your old age – you enjoy your life and you also enjoy your death. You enjoy all the seasons round the year – and each season has its own beauty, and each season has something to give to you, some ecstasy of its own.
The second question:
Do you never get tired of talking? Why do you talk regularly every morning? Don’t you feel like going for a holiday sometimes ?
I am not a Christian God. The Christian God created the world in six days and the seventh day he rested, hence, the Sunday is the holiday. Holiday means the holy day, God’s day of rest.
In the East we have never known any god resting. The very idea is stupid: God and resting? Rest is needed if what you are doing is not of your heart, then you get tired. When it is out of your heart and out of your love you don’t get tired; in fact you get nourished by it.
Talking to you, I feel nourished. After talking to you I feel more energy than ever because it is my love. I enjoy it. It is not work.
You can get tired if you are working. If you are playing, how can you get tired? Nobody has ever heard that people get tired by playing. In fact, when people are tired by work, they go to play as a rest – they relax. Six days they have been working in the office, in the factory, in the market; the seventh day they go to fish, or they go for golf – they play. They invite friends for a picnic; they go trekking in the hills. That is rest.
To me, every day is a holiday. If you love whatsoever you are doing you are never tired of it; it is nourishing, it is energy-giving, it is vitalizing.
But I can understand the question. The question is from Yoga Chinmaya. His whole concept of work is wrong. He works very reluctantly. He tries hard to avoid work. He finds out ways and means to escape from work. He goes on postponing, and he will always be ready there with excuses why his work is being postponed. He does not love it. Hence the question.
The question is not concerned with me – always remember – the question is yours, not mine. It shows something about you.
Mulla Nasruddin was saying to me one day: “Osho, do you know the difference between a French woman, an English woman and a Jewish woman’s reaction when she is kissed in bed by her husband?”
I said, “No, I don’t know, you tell me.”
He said, “The French woman says, ‘Oo la la, Pierre, your kisses are oo la la.’
“The English woman says, ‘Jolly well done – I say, Winston your kisses are jolly well done!’
