Life Gives unto Life

Talk #11 of the Series, Reflections on Khalil Gibran's The Prophet

"All the religions of the world teach charity, service, giving. But look at the world they have created: there is neither any charity nor any service nor any giving. They have used beautiful words, but their beautiful words are like the words of a blind man who is talking about light. His words may be beautiful but they don't carry any truth.

"Almustafa is giving you one of the most important secrets of transforming your life. He says:
You often say, 'I would give, but only to the deserving.'

"This is what all the religions have been teaching. The Buddhist scriptures are full of teachings that you should give only to the Buddhists because they are the deserving. And the brahmin scriptures are full, teaching everybody to give and share and serve – not those who need, who are starving, who are dying – but give to the brahmins because they deserve it."

Osho continues:
"They have all misled humanity; hence this mess all over the world.

"Almustafa is bringing you something of a very original insight – fresh, unpolluted. It cannot be a borrowed truth because there is no scripture in the world from which it can be borrowed. It is a heartfelt experience.
The trees in your orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your pasture.
"They simply give out of their abundance. If a tree is heavy with fruit, even if there is no one to take the fruit the tree is going to return it to the earth. It cannot go on living so heavily laden, burdened with abundance.

"Give out of your abundance.
They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.
"Life is a constant movement. Whenever the flow stops, there is death. All 'stops' belong to death; life is unaware of any stop.

"The really authentic religious person gives because he has; he gives because if he does not give it, it will perish, and with its perishing he will also perish. The religious person shares. It is not an obligation to anybody. On the contrary, the person who receives is obliging you because he has saved you from a burden that could have killed you. They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.

"Look into your own experience. The moments of giving are the most pleasant moments. The greatest joy comes to those who can give without any distinctions. The question is not to whom you are giving, the question is that you are so full, your giving is your overflowing. And overflowing is the dance of life, the song of existence.

"Cling to it, hold it, and it is going to die. It needs a continuous movement to live, just like your breathing. Try to hold it, out of fear – who knows whether it will come back or not? – and you will be committing suicide, because you go on giving your breath. And it is a giving, whether you are aware of it or not. And the more you give, the fuller is your giving, the healthier you are, the younger you are."
