That which is never lost cannot be found, and to search for it is absurd. But the moment this absurdity is understood all seeking stops by itself and that which is never lost is found!

Recommends it for: seekers
Talks on personal experiences by osho. We tend to believe that goose is inside the bottle but in reality it is not. We are engrossed with our thoughts which we call our problems. In reality if we be aware there is no problem at all. awareness makes it cease to exist.

Because the goose is out. Excerpts ...more
