I Stand for the Whole Man

Talk #23 of the Series, Om Mani Padme Hum: The Sound of Silence, the Diamond in the Lotus

"Western psychology has created a very schizophrenic situation by dividing man into extroverts and introverts. Man is one. This division has been destructive of all humanity and its whole past.

"The moment you divide any organic unity, it dies. You can divide only mechanical entities but not organic ones. You can take a bicycle apart and you can put it together again and you will not lose anything. But if you take a man apart and put him together again you won't have the same man you had divided; you will have only a corpse.

"It is of utmost importance to understand that organic unities cannot be divided – neither into higher and lower, nor into outer and inner, nor into sacred and mundane, nor into material and spiritual.

"Man is all."

Osho continues:
"What appears to be contradictory is only complementary, to those who understand. Your question raises great implications.

"Just a few days ago one Japanese scientist was here to attend a world science conference. He became aware about me only at the last moment, but before rushing to the airport he came here. He had not more than fifteen minutes, and I was asleep. He wrote a letter stating many important things: the first one was that nobody understands him. He has been around the earth in search of a man who can understand him.

"Looking at his letter I could not contain myself from laughing…because this is a much lower stage, when nobody understands you. I have also been around the world – everybody misunderstands me.

"I have invited the scientist, his name is Fukuoka.

"(Somebody giggles at the name, and the joke becomes contagious. The master, poker-faced, waits for it to subside…)

"…You can laugh in English, but not in Japanese!

"I have written to him, saying, 'Most of the things that you are saying cannot be understood because you yourself don't understand that they are based on a dual conception of reality. On one hand you condemn the famous philosopher Descartes, saying that he is responsible for dividing science from religion, and his division has created tremendous trouble for the whole humanity….'

"I can understand. But Fukuoka himself goes on continuously talking in his letter about the inner man and the outer man.

"Man is not divided into the inner and the outer. You are both. You can open your eyes and you are outside, and you can close your eyes and you are inside. Just small eyelids – that is the only division. Not much of a division. But the blindness of man is such that although Fukuoka understands that Descartes is wrong, he himself goes on doing the same thing without being alert at all. The materialist, the spiritualist…he wants the whole world to become spiritual. He goes on praising Gautam Buddha….

"And that makes me laugh because if you go on dividing man into lower and higher, into material, into spiritual, you may have changed the direction of division but division is there."
