No Question Means the Answer

Talk #15 of the Series, Come, Come, Yet Again Come

I feel too lazy to think of a question. What to do?

"It cannot be true that you really feel too lazy; otherwise who has written this question?

"A man was lying down on the couch of a very famous psychoanalyst, and he was continuously talking about his failures in life, failures of all kinds in all directions. He was trying to prove that he was an utter failure, the ultimate in failure, that there was nobody in the world who was more of a failure than he was.

"The psychoanalyst listened to him silently as long as he could tolerate, and then he said, 'Stop all this nonsense! You cannot be such a failure!'

"The man said, 'Why?'

"The psychoanalyst said, 'If you were a failure you would not be able to afford my fee! If you can afford my fee for years – and I am the most expensive psychoanalyst in the world – how can you be a failure?'

"You can ask such a beautiful question and you think you are lazy? And still you are asking what to do."

Osho continues:
"If you are really lazy you should ask what not to do. Lazy you can be, but at least be consistently lazy. Either you are a philosopher or a Polack! In fact, both are synonymous! If you like big names, beautiful words, then think of yourself as a philosopher.

"In the past, particularly in the Middle Ages, many mystics used the word foolosopher for philosopher – and they were right. If you want to be down to earth, then the fact is that you are simply a Polack. Philosophers are expected to ask such things.

"Centuries after Hamlet had told us what the question is – 'To be or not to be?' – Gertrude Stein's deathbed utterance became a familiar quotation. Remember it, when you are dying! Just before dying she opened her eyes and said, 'What is the answer?'

"The people who were around her were a little bit puzzled: 'How can one suddenly ask, 'What is the answer?' when even the question has not been mentioned?'

"Somebody gathered courage and responded to Stein's remark, 'But we don't know the question!'

"She smiled her beautiful smile and said, 'Okay, then what is the question?'

"Neither the question is known nor the answer is known, and you need not do anything. If there is no question at all, it is simply far out! Why create trouble for yourself? Why hanker after trouble? If there is no question, you have attained the answer! No question means the answer.

"You are not here to ask questions. I am not here to answer your questions. You are here to be ready to destroy all your questions; I am here to go on hammering on your questions so that they are shattered. I will not give you any answer, I will only destroy your questions. And a moment comes when there is no question, no answer, and that is the state of samadhi, that is the state of ultimate consciousness. When words disappear, thoughts disappear, knowledge disappears, ignorance disappears. When only pure consciousness is left just like a mirror reflecting that which is, just like this momenta silent pause. You can hear the traffic noiseit always happens! That's why the mystics say existence is such a harmony! You can hear the birds, you can even hear the silencethis throbbing of the hearts."
