The Secret of Awareness

It is Morning Swan, Wake Up!

Talk #7 of the Series, The Fish in the Sea Is Not Thirsty

"Man is awake and yet not awake. His wakefulness is very thin, his wakefulness is almost of no use. He is not asleep, that is true, but he is not awake either – he is in limbo, in the middle. He has awakened from the world of animals, but he is fast asleep to the world of gods.

"Man is a transitory period. Man is not a being but a becoming – on the way. The past is left behind and the future is not attained yet. Hence the agony, the anguish; man is torn apart. The past pulls him back. To be an animal again seems to be pleasant, and it is, because it has not the agony of man and the anguish and the anxiety of man.

"If you watch the animals you will feel jealous."

Osho continues:
"Walt Whitman has written it exactly in his diaries that: 'Whenever I see animals, I feel jealous. We have missed something.'

"We have not missed really, but the peace, the calm, the collectedness of the animal is lost. The animal is happy because he is unaware – unaware of death, unaware of the problems of life. The animal is happy because there is no consciousness. Consciousness first brings pain, because suddenly you become aware of a thousand and one problems facing you. You have to encounter them, you have to solve them or dissolve them. All peace disappears.

"But human consciousness is still worthwhile. And I don't agree with Walt Whitman, I agree with Socrates who say: 'I would like to be a discontented Socrates rather than a contented pig.' The statement of Socrates is of immense value. It has to be understood by every seeker, because the goal is ahead; there is no going back. The pig may look contented – because he is not aware, not really because he is contented. But to know discontent one needs consciousness.

"There is something ahead; something more has to happen. Something has happened, but only partially. Look back and you find the pig contented; look ahead, and you see buddhas contented. You can become a Buddha. A buddha means one who is conscious and contented. The pig is one who is unconscious and contented. And the man is just between the two: a little bit conscious, just a little bit. Conscious enough to be aware of the pain of life and the misery and the suffering, but not conscious enough to be aware of the ecstasies that life makes available.

"Just a little consciousness is enough to be aware of pain. But much more awareness is needed, much more consciousness is needed, to be aware of the deeper realms of your inner kingdom.

"Man is in a kind of drunkenness: awake and yet not awake. Man sees a little bit, and yet everything seems to be dark, just shadows moving in the dark are felt. But nothing is absolutely clear; there is no clarity, no transparency, no light.

"This is the state of man. And we cannot go back because there is no possibility of going back."
