Excerpt from: Tao: The State and the Art, Part 1, Chapter 5
"Tao means the way with no goal. Simply,the Way. It was couragious of Lao Tzu, twenty-five centuries ago, to tell people that there is no goal and we are not going anywhere. We are just going to be here, so make the time as beautiful, as loving, as joyous as possible. He called his philosophy Tao, and Tao means simply the Way.
"Many asked him,"Why have you chosen the name Tao? Because you don’t have any goals in your philosophy."
"He said,"Specifically for that reason I have chosen to call it "the Way",so that nobody forgets that there is no goal, there is only the Way."
"The Way is beautiful; the way is full of flowers. And the Way becomes more and more beautiful as your conciousness becomes higher. The moment you have reached the peak, everything becomes so sweet, so ecstatic, that you suddenly realize that this is the place; this is home. You were unnecessarily running here and there.
"So cancel all the tickets you have booked! There is nowhere to go." Osho
