Talk #22 of the Series, Zarathustra, A God That Can Dance

"An ancient story: A young devil comes running to his boss. He is trembling, and he says to the old devil, 'Something has to be done immediately, because on the earth one man has found the truth! And once people know the truth, what will happen to our profession?'

"The old man laughed, and he said, 'Sit down and rest and don't be worried. Everything is taken care of. Our people have reached there.'

"'But,' he said, 'I am coming from there. I have not seen a single devil there.'

"The old man said, 'The priests are my people. They have already surrounded the man who has found the truth. Now they will become the mediators between the man of truth and the masses. They will raise temples, they will write scriptures, they will interpret and distort everything."

Osho continues:
"They will ask people to worship, to pray. And in all this hubbub, the truth will be lost. This is my old method, which has always succeeded.'

"The priests who represent religion are not its friends. They are the greatest enemies of it, because religion needs no mediators: between you and existence there is an immediate relatedness. All that you have to learn is how to understand the language of existence. You know the languages of man, but they are not the languages of existence.

"Existence knows only one language:

"And that is of silence.

"If you can also be silent you will be able to understand the truth, the meaning of life, the significance of all that exists. And there is no one who can interpret it for you. Everyone has to find it for himself. Nobody can do the job on your behalf – but that's what the priests have been doing for centuries. They are standing like a China Wall between you and existence.

"Just a few days ago, the Vatican pope informed all the Catholics, 'It is being told again and again to me that many Catholics are confessing to God directly. They are not going to the confession booth, to the priest. I declare it a sin to confess directly to God. You have to confess to the priest; you cannot relate to God directly.'

"He has not given any reason, because there is no reason at all, except that the priest has to be kept in his profession – and he himself is a high priest.

"If people start approaching reality without anybody leading them, without anybody telling them what is good and what is evil, without anybody giving them a map that they have to follow, millions of people will be able to understand existence – because our heartbeat is also the heartbeat of the universe, our life is part of the life of the total.

"We are not strangers, we are not coming from somewhere else; we are growing within existence. We are part of it, an essential part of it. We just have to be silent enough, so that we can hear that which cannot be said in words: the music of existence, the immense joy of existence, the constant celebration of existence."
