When the Heart Is Awake

Wake Up! Wake Up!

Talk #4 of the Series, The Fish in the Sea Is Not Thirsty

"Friend wake up! Wake up!

"This has been the call of all the buddhas down the centuries. They have been shouting from the housetops. Everybody hears it, but nobody listens. Everybody knows it, but nobody understands. And knowledge is futile – it is only understanding that liberates. And hearing is of no use – unless you listen.

"Anybody who is not deaf is capable of hearing, but listening is a totally different matter, qualitatively different. It has nothing to do with your ears: it has something to do with your heart. When your ears and your heart are joined together, listening happens. If the heart is not in the ears, you hear, but hearing is not going to help. It will make you more knowledgeable. But to become more knowledgeable is to create more hindrances between you and the beloved."

Osho continues:
"Knowledge can never become a bridge, it is always a wall. It divides you from the ultimate, from the immediate, from the whole. It cannot connect you – only love connects. But love is of the heart; it has nothing to do with the head. Knowledge gathers in the head; memory accumulates it. The ego enjoys it.

"Love wells up in the heart. And love is another name for understanding. It is only the eyes of love which can see, and the ears of love which can hear.

"Existence is not a problem that can be solved by the head. It is not a riddle to be figured out: it is a poem to be sung, it is a dance to be danced. It is a love affair. Existence is a mystery – with no solution, because it is not a problem in the first place. It cannot be solved: it has to be lived.

"And when the buddhas call 'Wake up! Wake up!' what do they mean? They mean that your heart is asleep. Your head is very awake, but the awakening of the head is in reality a metaphysical sleep. Unless the heart wakes up, you are only dreaming – dreams and dreams, even dreams that you are awake, dreams of wakefulness, dreams of becoming religious, dreams of becoming saints, holy, but they are all dreams.

"People even think about godliness. It is such an absurdity. People even try to prove godliness through arguments. Godliness cannot be proved, because anything that can be proved can also be disproved. If godliness depends on logic, then logic is godliness, then logic is higher than godliness. No, it does not depend on logic. In fact, if you are too logical, you will not be able at all to sense the presence of godliness in existence. And the loss is going to be yours, because not to feel the presence of godliness in existence is to miss the whole point of life.

"And man lives in thoughts, arguments, theories, philosophies. And the danger is that if you talk too much about godliness and you read too much about it and you discuss too much about it, you may be able to deceive yourself."
