The Phenomenon of Unconsciousness

Talk #9 of the Series, I Say Unto You, Vol. 1

"Man's consciousness is just the tip of the iceberg; otherwise his own being is drowned in darkness, in unconsciousness. And the little bit of consciousness that man shows is very fragile, very tentative, very accidental. It arises out of the pressure of circumstances, it is not a constantly flowing well in him. If there is some danger man becomes a little bit more conscious. If the danger disappears he relapses, relaxes back into his unconsciousness.

"This unconsciousness is very deep, and the consciousness is very shallow. And whenever there is a conflict between the unconscious and the conscious, the unconscious wins. The conscious can win only as a servant of the unconscious. This is the misery of man. And all his pretensions of being conscious, alert, aware, are nothing but pretensions."

Osho continues:
"This awareness is not even skin-deep. Scratch the man a little bit, and you will find a dark continent within him. Scratch yourself a little bit, and you will find a dark night of the soul. And people don't go inwards because of the fear of this darkness.

"The masters go on saying 'Know thyself.' The masters go on invoking, challenging 'Enter into your own being. Go inwards.' People listen, but they never follow because of the fear of this inner darkness. Whenever they look in there is nothing but darkness. Outside there is a little light; inside there seems to be no light.

"Have you ever closed your eyes and sat in silence looking inwards? The moment you are really broken away from the outside, you will fall into darkness, into sleep. And the well of that darkness is very deep. Just on the surface a little consciousness exists, and that too not constantly. There are moments when it is there, and there are moments when it is not there. And it is very rarely there; more often it is not there. It is delicate and fragile.

"That's why I say 'Handle it with prayer' – it is very fragile. And unless you grow deep into your consciousness. you will never know anything of truth, of freedom, of God, of bliss. Those words will simply remain words; they will never become alive in you, they will never bloom in you. You will never experience them – what they mean. God is an empty word unless you are conscious. Christ is an empty word unless you are conscious. Buddha is a myth, and all those talks of superconsciousness, nirvana, samadhi, the 'kingdom of God.' are just parables – they don't mean much. They can't mean much, because the meaning has to come through your consciousness. The words are empty of content. You have to put the content in them. Only then will they start beating with life, only then will they start moving, dancing with life. Only then will flowers come and fragrance be released.

"This is one of the most fundamental things to be understood about man: that man is only partially conscious. And that consciousness is more or less dependent on outer circumstances, not on you. It is not even your consciousness; it is not rooted in you, it is not centered in you, it is not coming out of you."
