The Sword of Love and Death

Talk #9 of the Series, The Revolution

"The greatest mystery in life is not life itself, but death. Death is the culmination of life, the ultimate blossoming of life. In death the whole life is summed up, in death you arrive. Life is a pilgrimage towards death. From the very beginning, death is coming. From the moment of birth, death has started coming towards you, you have started moving towards death.

"And the greatest calamity that has happened to the human mind is that he is against death. Being against death means you will miss the greatest mystery. And being against death also means that you will miss life itself – because they are deeply involved into each other; they are not two. Life is growing, death is the flowering of it. The journey and the goal are not separate; the journey ends in the goal."

Osho continues:
"Death has to be taken as the crescendo. Then a different vision arises; then you don't avoid death, then you are not anti-death – then you are thrilled by its mystery and you start enjoying it and contemplating it and meditating on it.

"And death comes in many ways. When you will die, that is only one of the forms of death. When your mother dies, that is a death to you too – because the mother was involved in you, she was occupying a great part of your being. And the mother has died – that part inside you has died. Your father will die, your brother, your sister, your friend. Even when your enemy dies, some-thing will die in you, because the enemy was also involved in you. You will miss something, you will lack something, you will never be the same again.

"So it is not only in your death that death comes; death comes through many ways. Death is always coming. When your childhood disappears and you become a young man or a young woman, can't you see? Death has happened. The childhood is no more there, the childhood has died, that door is closed. You cannot move back, you cannot recapture it, it is gone forever: you have died as a child. And then one day the youth moves into old age: he has died again. There are a thousand and one deaths.

"In fact, if you look deeply, penetratingly, you will see each moment you are dying, because each moment you are changing – something is slipping out of your being and something is entering your being. Each moment is a birth and a death. You flow between these two banks, birth and death. Your river of life is possible only because of birth and death – and it is each moment that it is happening.

"It happens very silently. You cannot hear its footsteps, it makes no noise. It goes on happening – and it happens so continuously that you don't see it, it is so obvious. The obvious is forgotten, it becomes part of your life. You only take notice of something which happens suddenly, you only take notice of something which is abrupt."
