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!
That is why I say: Seek and you will not find, because the very seeking is the barrier. The search itself is the hindrance because it creates the seeker, the ego, the illusion that "I am."

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.

Book will not be loved by serious readers as filled with many jokes. But ok ok

Because the goose is out. Excerpts ...more
