Talk #17 of the Series, The Secret

"Religion is as simple as the fish swimming in the ocean, but man has become very complicated. It is because of man's complexity that religion looks arduous. Religion cannot be arduous because it is our very nature. It is in our breathing, it is in our heartbeats, it circulates in our blood, it is our very marrow, our very soul. How can it be difficult? The very idea of difficulty arises because of a wrong notion.

"We have been taught down the ages that religion is a faraway goal and the journey is uphill. In fact, religion is not a goal at all, and there is no journey uphill or downhill. There is no journey possible. Religion is where you are, religion is what you are, religion is your being – there is nowhere to go."

Osho continues:
"And those who go in search, they are moving farther and farther away from religion. To seek is to lose, to search is not to find.

"Seeking becomes more and more difficult; the farther away you reach, the more difficult it becomes, the more frustrating – because the more efforts you make to attain to God, the less is the possibility of attaining him.

"God is already the case. God is the ocean, we are the fish. And there is no need for a fish to learn swimming.

"I have heard…

"Mulla Nasruddin was fishing on a lake. It was a private lake and fishing was absolutely prohibited. And just behind him there was a big board declaring in capital letters: 'No fishing allowed. Trespassers will be prosecuted.' But he was sitting on the bank, fishing.

"The landlord came, caught him red-handed. He asked, 'What are you doing?'

"Mulla laughed. He said, 'I was teaching this fish to swim.'

"No fish needs any teaching to swim. No man needs any religion whatsoever. All that is needed is to become simple. Drop your complexities, drop your unnecessary mind games. Be silent and still and you will find it at the very core of your being; it is waiting there, but it is a very still small voice. Your mind is creating so much noise; that's why you cannot hear it.

"I have heard…

"An Englishman and an Irishman were riding on top of a London bus, and the Englishman especially had been annoyed by the confusion, the bustle, the raucous din from all sides. They came in sight of Westminster Abbey, and at this moment the chimes burst forth in a joyous melody.

"The Englishman turned to his friend and said, 'Isn't that sublime? It is glorious to hear those chimes pealing to heaven, and doesn't it lift one's thoughts higher and higher to the Creator of all things?'

"Casey leaned over, hand to his ear. 'Ye will have to speak a little louder, George.'

"'Those magnificent chimes, old top – don't they imbue you with a feeling of reverence, of awe? Doesn't that golden tintinnabulation reawaken golden memories of a happy past?'

"Casey leaned still closer, face still puzzled."
