Talk #3 of the Series, The Path of Love

"Man's quest for the truth is eternal. It is a long pilgrimage without any beginning. Though it comes to an end, it has no beginning. We have been searching and searching and searching; our search has continued through the centuries, sometimes in one form, sometimes in another form. Even those who don't seem to be consciously searching for truth, they too are searching. Man's very being is a search for the truth.

"That is the agony of man – and the glory too. No other animal is in search, all other animals are contented as they are. The dog is a dog, and he is not trying to become anything else, there is no becoming. The dog is perfectly satisfied; he's at ease. There is no pilgrimage, he is not going anywhere, there is no future."

Osho continues:
"And so is it the case with every other animal.

"Man is a strange animal, very odd, and the strangeness is that he is never satisfied; discontent is his very soul. He is moving; he is dynamic, he is not static. He is a flow, a river searching for the ocean – sometimes knowingly, sometimes not so knowingly, but the search continues. It is in the very being of man to be a seeker, to be a searcher; man cannot be otherwise.

"Friedrich Nietzsche has said that man is a rope stretched between two eternities, the eternity of nature and the eternity of God. Man is a bridge. You cannot rest while you are a man, you have to go. For a while you may rest, but rest cannot become your life; you have to go – because man is not a being, man is a process.

"The dog has a being, and the rock also has a being, but man has no being yet; the being has to come, the being has to flower, the being has to be achieved. Man is very paradoxical: he is, and yet he is not. That is the tension, the anguish, the anxiety: How to be?

"A constant abyss surrounds humanity, and man is always facing the bottomless abyss and always afraid of not being, because he is not yet. Man is a promise: he can be, but he is not yet – so there is hope and there is fear, there is possibility and there is apprehension. It may happen, it may not happen, so man is never in certainty.

"This whole search for truth can be divided into four stages. And I would like you to ponder over these four stages, because you will be somewhere in these four stages – either in some stage, or passing from one stage to another.

"The first stage I call 'the jungle'; the second I call 'the forest'; the third I call 'the garden'; the fourth I call 'the home.'

"'The jungle' – it is the state of deep sleep; man is not consciously searching. The majority lives in this state. The search is there but very unconscious, not deliberate yet; groping in the dark but not exactly aware what for, or not even aware that one is groping, very accidental."
