Snowflakes as Beautiful as These

Talk #7 of the Series, Returning to the Source

"A few things before we enter this beautiful anecdote. First, time should be forgotten completely. If you want to enter meditation time should not be of concern to you. If you are in a hurry then nothing is possible, and this has become a most deeply rooted problem for the modern man. The West has made people too time-conscious, not knowing where they are going, but speeding to get there because time is short.

"I have heard:

"Once a pilot communicated on the intercom to his passengers: 'It seems everything has gone wrong. The radar is not functioning, the radio is out of order, even the compass has ceased to function. But don't be worried, we are keeping the same speed.'

"But this is what is happening to the modern mind: everything is out of order except speed."

Osho continues:
"Where are you going? For what are you going? Of course you are going fast, but you are going so fast that you have no time to look at where you are going and why you are going.

"People come to me and they say, 'I can stay here only one day. Is meditation possible?' They ask, 'Can you give me something so that I can know the divine?' They are childish, juvenile; they have not grown up at all. They don't know what they are saying.

"Is God something one can give to you as a gift? Is God a certain technique so that the formula can be given to you and you can work it out later on? Is it something like a material key that can be given to you and you can unlock the door? This search needs tremendous patience, infinite patience. This is the first requirement: you should simply forget about time.

"What is time? It is a very anxious state of mind. You are too much worried about tomorrow, too much worried about the future, too much worried about the past. You are pulled in these two opposite directions, the past and the future, and you are worried because you have not gained anything in the past. You are worried: who knows, the same may also happen in the future as has happened in the past – nothing. You have achieved in the past, and it may be that you may not achieve anything in the future, so you are in a hurry. But just hurry won't help, because it disturbs you.

"The modern man is farther away from God not because he is more materialistic, no. Man has always been materialistic, has to be so because a man is ninety-nine percent body. Man has always been materialistic – this is nothing new. Is it because of too much scientific training and education? No. Science is not against God. It may not be for God, but it is not at all against God. It simply says: God is not my concern at all. It is not; they exist on different planes. Science cannot say yes or no to God; they are not moving in the same dimension, the dimensions differ."
