Talk #3 of the Series, Ecstasy, the Forgotten Language

"Life is dialectical. It is more Hegelian than Aristotelian, because it consists of the opposites. Without the opposites existence is impossible – day and night, life and death, summer and winter. Life is so vast it can contain contradictions, and yet life in itself is not contradictory. There is harmony in the contradictions, the contradictions are complementary.

"This is one of the most fundamental things to be understood. If you miss it you will miss the whole message of Kabir, and you will miss the whole message of religion. And it is very difficult to understand it because our minds have been trained in a simple logic: non-dialectical logic. We have been told, we have been taught, that opposites never meet. We have been taught and told that opposites are really opposites."

Osho continues:
"That is not true. Can you think of love existing without hate? And can you think there is any possibility for life without death? It is not even conceivable that good can exist without the bad. God needs the Devil – without the Devil, God cannot be.

"Opposites only appear to be opposites because our understanding is not very deep yet. You inhale and exhale, and there is a rhythm and a harmony. Your inhalation is not against exhalation, neither is your exhalation against your inhalation. They are both part of one process; the pendulum swings from inhalation to exhalation, and you exist just between the two – in the balance, in the harmony.

"A rich life is the life of harmony, a rich life is the life of a subtle synthesis.

"There are two types of poor people in the world. People who know only indulgence are poor because they have not known renunciation. And people who know only renunciation, they are poor because they have not known indulgence. If there is a subtle balance between indulgence and renunciation, in that very balance there is a transcendence: you go beyond the dual.

"That's why I say life is more Hegelian. Hegel's understanding is truer, closer to life than Aristotle's. Hegel says life moves from thesis to antithesis to synthesis; then the synthesis too becomes a thesis again. Once the thesis is there, antithesis is created. Again they start creating a new balance, a higher synthesis arrives. That's how life moves. In each single detail life moves through contradictions, just as the bird has two wings and you have two legs, in your head there are two brains contradicting each other and complementing each other: the left brain and the right brain, reason and intuition, the feminine and the masculine. And there is a possibility of a synthesis. This synthesis is the goal of all religion, of all mysticism, of all yoga. Yoga means meeting, meeting of the opposites. It is a union.

"We call the world the universe; we don't call it the multiverse. We call it the universe because it is one. Still the oneness has multiplicity in it, variety, distinctions, differences. The oneness is not a monotonous oneness, the oneness is not dead; it is alive."
