When you know, how can you wonder??

*Everybody is born as a genius, but people start compromising very soon. And when they compromise, their talents disappear, their intelligence dies. They go on selling their souls for mundane things, for useless things.
*Innocence is the door, through innocence you enter into beauty.
*The knowledgeable person lives with a question mark, and the person of awe and wonder lives with an exclamation point.
*Existence can be divided in three categories: the known, t

"The more you become silent, the more you attain to the state of not-knowing, the why's starts slipping. One day suddenly you are not searching for causes and reasons and why's." - OSHO

Socotesc aceasta carte ca fiind una dintre putinele care a reusit sa imi schimbe viziunea despre cunoastere, intelectualitate, inteligenta si alte notiuni vitale. Osho explica concret cat de important este echilibrul dintre stiinta si misticism ca in cele din urma omul sa gandeasca liber si rational, dar si sa traiasca (ba chiar sa experimenteze) multitudinea emotiilor si senzatiilor indiferent de ceea ce spun legile morale scrise.

Osho, siempre tan repetitivo como siempre!!!
Pero siempre GENIAL, ÚNICO!
Nuevamente terminé encontrando palabras a esas grandes verdades de la Existencia que mi ser conoce de manera intuitiva, pero que no es capaz de definir con palabras o conceptos. Nuevamente me terminó encantando la simplicidad con la que dice cosas tan profundas, que desembocan en mi alma y la enriquecen y pacífican.
Maravilloso. Sencillamente maravilloso libro.

While I was in the psychology classroom, I was taught that humans learn through a process called schema where new concepts are understood by our existing knowledge that is similar to them. In this book, I learnt how wrong it is to learn something new that way.

“Cand te apropii de tine te apropii de Univers. Si cel mai mare moment in viata este cand accepti misterul existentei asa cum este el, fara sa mai pui intrebari.
Ai inteles un lucru-ca existenta este misterioasa si va ramane misterioasa. Nu este nevoie de nicio cunostere. Asta inseamna ca te-ai stabilit in Universul misterios si ca te-ai stabilit acolo deplin inocent.”
