Till You Live Life Totally

Talk #16 of the Series, From Darkness to Light

"There is no goal of life, for the simple reason that life is its own goal. The goal is intrinsic, not something outside; not there, far away, but herenow, in this very moment.

"The very idea of goal is future-oriented.

"The moment you start living for a goal you stop living in the present, in the immediate. The goal becomes more important. Tomorrow becomes more important, and you have to sacrifice today for tomorrow; and the trouble is, tomorrow never comes, has never come, is not going to come ever.

"But you go on sacrificing your today – which is your only treasure, which is all that you have got.

"You risk that which you have for that which is only a mind desire.

"But the society, culture, civilization, religions – they have all conditioned the mind of human beings to live for ideals, goals, to go on sacrificing the real for some imaginary paradise, future life, eternity, God."

Osho continues:
"All these names mean only one thing: Don't live now.

"All the cultures and all the civilizations and all the religions are against the 'now' – and now is the only reality.

"Wherever you are, whenever you are, it is always now. Except 'now' there is nothing existential.

"The word goal is very dangerous. It is suicidal to have a goal. Without your awareness you are being sacrificed for something which is never going to happen.

"Life in itself is enough – it needs no goals.

"That's why there is this urge, this desire, this tremendous lust to live and to live forever. It has nothing to do with you; it is your very life. This is not being taught to you; you are born with this desire. This desire is your gift from existence itself.

"If you listen to this desire and if you stop listening to all kinds of religious nonsense, you will be a new man, really alive. Yes, life has a tremendous power, and it wants to expand. It wants to live as intensely and totally as possible.

"And this is not going to happen some other day. If it is going to happen it can happen only now:

"Now or never.

"But it is not happening now because your minds are tethered to some future goal: you have to achieve heaven and you have to achieve the realization of God. All bogus words, meaningless jargon, but because they have been repeated so often for thousand of years it sounds as if those words have some content in them.

"You cannot find a more hollow word than God – with no content in it at all, with no meaning in it at all.

"When I was reading the book, Waiting For Godot, I thought perhaps Godot is a German word for God. I asked Haridas; Haridas said, 'No, Godot is not German for god; the German is Gott.'

"I said, 'My God! that is even worse. Godot is far better!'

"But Godot or God or Gott, one thing is certain, you are never going to get it. And these Germans are thinking they have gott! Nobody has ever found God.

"People have been lying, and in the name of God lying becomes easier because the name of God becomes a protective umbrella."
