So I am not saying, don’t work. But work is the minimum of life, and the state of not doing anything and just being a silent pool of energy is the maximum of living, because out of this silent pool everything that is beautiful arises.
I finally got the courage to expose myself. Help! I am falling apart! My head wants something, my heart something else, my being yet something different, and my body something else. While taking decisions in worldly matters they are not in tune with each other. My head, mind, heart, being and body never agree on one thing. So, when I cannot be in harmony with myself, how can I be in harmony with you and existence?
Osho, please harmonize me!
I can understand that your body, your mind, and your heart are not in harmony. But your being – you have only heard the word; you don’t know anything about it. If you had known your being, everything would have been harmonized immediately.
Being is such a great power that neither the heart can go against it, nor the head, nor the body. So leave the being apart – because that is the solution. You have to find your being, and the finding of the being will harmonize your existence.
Right now, when you find body, mind and heart in disharmony, first listen to the body. None of the so-called saints will say this to you, First listen to the body. The body has a wisdom of its own, and the body is uncorrupted by the priests; the body is unpolluted by your teachers, by your education, by your parents. Begin with the body, because right now the body is the purest thing in you. So if the heart and the mind go against it, let them go. You follow the body. The body is the first harmony and the being is the last.
The fight is always between the heart and the head. The body and being are never in conflict – they are both natural. The body is visible nature and the being is invisible nature, but they are part of one phenomenon.
Mind and heart are in conflict, because the mind can be polluted, corrupted – and that’s what all the religions and all the cultures have been doing: corrupting your mind. They cannot corrupt your heart. But they have managed a different technique for the heart: they have bypassed it, they have ignored it. They have not nourished it; they have tried in every way to weaken it, condemn it.
So what you have, in fact, is your head, which goes against your body – because all the cultures are against the body – and the body is your home. Your heart is part of the body, and your head is also part of the body – but the head is capable of being influenced, being conditioned. The heart is beyond the reach of other people; only you can reach it.
