Talk #14 of the Series, Beyond Enlightenment

"The most obvious in life seems to be the most difficult; the most simple seems to be the most complicated.

"The reason why it happens so is because the mind is not interested in the obvious. It wants the challenge of the impossible; only with the challenge of the impossible can the mind fulfill its ego. With the obvious, there is no space for the ego to grow or even to exist. The obvious is the grave of the ego. The simple we take for granted because it is so simple. Only the far away, the distant, catches our eye, invites us for a journey. Because of this, people have gone around the earth – people like Columbus. People have gone to the moon, people are trying to go to Mars, people are thinking to reach some day to the most distant stars."

Osho continues:
"Nobody bothers to enter into himself, and to see the most miraculous, the most mysterious, the most fundamental principle of life, the very source of life – it is so close, so obvious, so simple.

"People may not find anything on the moon; they have not found anything, but they have become great historical figures. Edmund Hillary has not found anything on Everest, but his name will remain a landmark forever. I have always been surprised that for at least one hundred years people from all the Western countries have been coming to climb the highest peak of the Himalayas: Everest. No Indian has bothered about it; for the Indian it is so obvious. The more difficult a thing is, the more attractive it is; the more unattainable, the more mind becomes obsessed.

"I have heard:

"A great psychologist was visiting a madhouse. The superintendent of the madhouse was taking him on a tour, satisfying his curiosities and questions about the inmates. He became immensely interested in one inmate; behind the bars, in his cell, he was standing naked. On the wall there was a small picture of an ordinary woman, and he was standing in a worshipful mood, tears flowing from his eyes. The psychologist asked, 'What is the matter with this man?'

"The superintendent said, 'Don't disturb him,' took him a little way away, and said, 'He does not like to be disturbed in his prayers, and he is praying almost the whole day.'

"The psychologist said, 'Whose picture is that?'

"The superintendent started laughing. He said, 'It is nobody, it is just an ordinary woman. He was in love, but because they belonged to different castes, the father of the woman refused; he became mad and the woman became a goddess. Unattainable, one ordinary woman became a goddess. Now he worships and prays, 'What has not happened in this life, perhaps through prayer and worship may happen in the next.''

"The psychologist said, 'I have never come across such a case.'

"The superintendent said, 'Just wait a little more.'

"In the next cell there was another man who was hitting his head against the wall, and two guards were holding him. The psychologist said, 'What has happened to him? Why does he want to hit his head on the wall?'

"The superintendent said, 'He has gone mad."
