The god whom I love is inside

Talk #7 of the Series, The Guest

"T.S. Eliot says in Choruses from 'The Rock':
But it seems that something has happened that has never happened before: though we know not just when, or why, or how, or where.
Men have left G O D not for other gods, they say, but for no god; and this has never happened before that men both deny gods and worship gods, professing first Reason,
And then Money, and Power, and what they call Life, or Race, or Dialectic,
The Church disowned, the tower overthrown, the bells upturned, and what have we to dobut stand with empty hands and palms turned upwards
In an age which advances progressively backwards?

"Yes, something has happened that has never happened before: for the first time in the evolution of human consciousness man stands alienated from God."

Osho continues:
"Man stands separated from existence. Man stands lonely, with no companion, in great darkness, with no light to lead him, guide him. Man has never been in such despair, man has never been in such a state of homelessness.

"T.S. Eliot is right: 'Something has happened that has never happened before.' And why has it happened? How has it happened? It is difficult to pinpoint it but not difficult to understand it in a vague way. These things are not very tangible and they don't happen in a certain moment. they happen so gradually, so slowly, that one never becomes really aware of when, where, how; but a few things can be understood.

"Man had always lived with nature. To live with nature is to live with God in an indirect way, because nature reflects God, existence, in a thousand and one ways. The growing trees and the faraway call of the cuckoo and the winds in the pine trees and the rivers moving towards the ocean and the proud mountains standing in the sun and the starry night, and it is impossible not to be reminded of some invisible hands. It is impossible not to see that existence is not dead but alive. The ocean heaves, breathes; the whole existence is a growing phenomenon. It is not dead, it cannot be dead. Everything is growing.

"Because of this growing experience man has remained constantly aware of some invisible, mysterious force behind it all. That force is called God. God is not a person, let me repeat, but just a presence.

"Still when you go deep into the Himalayas, you again start feeling a kind of reverence, awe, wonder. Again you start feeling something that was very easily available to the primitive man.

"The civilized man has lost something because now we live in the man-made world where it is almost impossible to find any signature of God. How can you find the divine on asphalt roads? They don't grow, they don't breathe. How can you find God in cement structures? They are not alive. How can you find God in machines, in technology? Although it is great, even the greatest machine cannot give you the sense of the mysterious, of the miraculous."
