The Energy of Eight of Rainbows Osho Zen Tarot Based on Osho’s Teachings
Sometimes it happens that you become one, in some rare moment. Watch the ocean, the tremendous wildness of it – and suddenly you forget your split, your schizophrenia; you relax. Or, moving in the Himalayas, seeing the virgin snow on the Himalayan peaks, suddenly a coolness surrounds you and you need not be false because there is no other human being to be false to. You fall together. Or, listening to beautiful music, you fall together.
Whenever, in whatsoever situation, you become one, a peace, happiness, a bliss, surrounds you, arises in you. You feel fulfilled. There is no need to wait for these moments –these moments can become your natural life. These extraordinary moments can become ordinary moments – that is the whole effort of Zen.
You can live an extraordinary life in a very ordinary life: cutting wood, chopping wood, carrying water from the well, you can be tremendously at ease with yourself. Cleaning the floor, cooking food, washing the clothes, you can be perfectly at ease – because the whole question is of you doing your action totally, enjoying, delighting in it.
