The Grass Grows By Itself

Osho discusses how Zen came into being and describes the remarkable people who spread it across the Asian continent. This book contains great stories about Lao Tzu, Bodhidharma, Confucius, Bokuju and others. Osho′s humor and insight give the reader a feeling of timelessness, as though the reader has come to Lao Tzu to ask about "the way," is being shocked by Bodhidharma′s spontaneous totality or is being awakened by Seddyo′s koan. And of course, Osho himself – a mystic′s mystic!

Excerpt from: The Grass Grows by Itself, Chapter 1
"The quality of being total is totally different. It is not a question of being articulate, it is rather a question of giving every part its proportion. It is a harmony. It is giving your life a harmonious rhythm with everything existing in it. Then the mind is also beautiful. Then it doesn′tt lead you to the madhouses. Then the mind becomes the greater mind, the mind becomes the enlightenment. But your whole exists as a whole; you Don′t divide yourself; your wisdom remains undivided. That′s what Bokuju is saying, and that is what Zen is all about. That′s why I say that Zen is a rare phenomenon. No other religion has reached to such a great flowering. Because Zen has come to understand that the understanding is of the total – you eat, you sleep, you be natural and you be total, and Don′t try to divide yourself, mind and body, soul and matter. Don′t divide. With division comes conflict and violence, with division comes millions of problems, and there are no solutions. Rather, there is only one solution and that is to be whole again, to leave everything to the natural totality.

"The mind will be there but its function will be totally different. I also use the mind. I am talking to you, the mind is needed. For communication the mind is needed; in fact it is a communication device. For memory the mind is needed. It is a computer. But to be, your whole is needed. In the body – and when I say‘body’ I mean your whole: body, mind, soul – everything has its own functioning. If I want to catch something, I will use my hand. If I want to move, I will use my legs. If I want to communicate, I will use my mind. That′s all. Otherwise I remain as a whole. And when I use my hands, my whole backs my hands. They are no used against the whole, but with the co-operation of the whole. When I use my legs and walk, they are used by the whole, in co-operation. In fact, they are functioning, walking for the whole, no for themselves. If I talk to you, communicate, I use the mind for the whole. If I have something in my whole being that I would like to communicate, I use my mind, I use my hands and my gestures, I use my eyes; but they are used by the whole. The whole remains the supreme. The whole remains the master. When the parts become the master, then you are falling apart, then your togetherness will be lost." Osho
