The Way of Wisdom, the Way of Love

There are no words to tell

Track #5 of the Series, Ecstasy, the Forgotten Language

"The truth is known and yet not known – known in a sense and not known in another; known because we are part of it, but not known because we are not separate from it. To know something, the knower has to be separate, and yet again, to know something really, how can you know it if you are separate? This is the basic problem that faces the seeker of truth. We are one with it, there is no space between us and the truth, so we cannot become the knower. We cannot separate the known from the knower – there is no way to separate them – and knowledge exists only when the knower and known are separate.

"Knowledge is a bridge between the object and the subject. If they are not separate, the bridge cannot exist."

Osho continues:
"So the first thing to be remembered: truth is not known in the ordinary sense, cannot be known in the ordinary sense.

"Yet there is a knowing of sorts – a totally different type of knowing, of a totally different quality. The knowing is more like love than knowledge. You know a woman or a man when you are deep in love. When your boundaries meet and mingle and merge, when you are no longer separate, when you cannot say where you end and where your woman starts, when there are no fences and no defenses, when you are simply overlapping, overflowing into each other – the division has disappeared and you have become indivisible – there is a sort of knowing. You know. Before it, all that you used to think of as knowledge was just illusory.

"But can you say now that you know? Now there is no one separate who can claim to be the knower. This is the problem. Truth is known, but in such a way that you cannot claim knowledge. Truth is known in such a way that by knowing it the mystery does not disappear; in fact it becomes very, very deep, infinitely deep, ultimately deep. By knowing the truth, nothing is solved. In fact for the first time you are facing the insoluble. This is the paradox, the dilemma.

"If you understand this dilemma, then you will be able to follow what Kabir is trying to say.

"Let us go into it a little more. All knowledge is illusory; we only think that we know. What do we mean when we say we know? When you say, 'I know this tree,' what do you mean? It is a pine tree or an old oak or something else. What do you know? You know a label: it is a 'pine' or an 'oak' or an 'ashoka.' You know a name. All that your knowledge consists of is that you know the label. Forget the label and the unknown is there. All knowledge consists only of names – drop the label and suddenly the unknown is there.

"But we live by naming things. It gives us a false sense of security."
