Truth Is That Which Is

Talk #5 of the Series, The Dhammapada: The Way of the Buddha, Vol. 07

"The way of Gautama the Buddha is the way of let-go; it cannot be determined by willpower. Willpower is only a beautiful name for ego power. The existence of the will is nothing but a by-product of the ego. The ego itself is a shadow, hence willpower is a shadow of a shadow. The very idea of having a will of one's own is against existence. It creates a rift between you and the whole. The whole has will – how can the part have a will of its own? The part can win, not against the whole but with the whole. The part can win, not by winning but by surrendering.

"The path of Buddha is of total surrender: total surrender to the dhamma, to Tao, to the universal law, to God."

Osho continues:
"These are different names for the same phenomenon. We are living in a cosmos, not in a chaos. Everything is as perfect as it can be; nothing can be improved upon. The very idea of trying to improve upon things is sheer stupidity. Those who have known, they have known the absolute perfection of existence.

"Then what is left? To dissolve in the whole and celebrate! This cannot be done as a determination on your part, because if you determine, then you remain there behind your determination hiding in disguise. If you determine, how can you dissolve? You cannot surrender – if you surrender, it is not surrender.

"Then what is surrender? How is it going to happen at all? Surrender is the understanding that the ego is false. In that very understanding, the ego evaporates – is not found anymore – and the surrender has happened. Not that it has been done by you; it happens without your doing. Only then is it true, authentic; it has immense beauty and tremendous power, because then you become a vehicle of the whole. You are no longer a part, you simply represent the whole.

"You are the wave in the ocean – and the wave in the ocean is the ocean itself! If the ocean contains the wave, the wave contains the ocean in a similar way. They are inseparable, they are one. The wave is the manifestation of the unmanifest, a finite expression of the infinite. So are you just a wave. The moment you start thinking yourself separate, the wave has gone insane.

"The first sutra:
If you determine your course
with force or speed,
you miss the way of the law.
"The ego is always aggressive; it can exist only through aggression. It creates such fuss, such dust, such smoke, that you can't see. It makes you blind. It whirls you round and round, it makes you dizzy. That's why the ego is always hankering for more and more power, more and more force. It wants to do things with absolute force.

"The ego is a fascist, it is totalitarian, it is dictatorial. It does not want any rebellion against itself. It immediately destroys any possibility of you becoming free of it."
