A little bit of Osho.

Don’t call it uncertainty- call it wonder.
Don’t call it insecurity- call it freedom.

We don’t often think of Osho as a great writer, but I love his words and ideas. I was recently feeling a little lost and refound a book of his and the above, opening words. He goes on:

I am not here to give you a dogma – a dogma makes one certain. I am not here to give you any promise for the future – any promise for the future makes one secure. I am here simply to make you alert and aware – that is, to be here now, with all the insecurity that life is, with all the uncertainty that life is, with all the danger that life is.

I know you come here seeking some certainty, some creed, some ‘ism’ somewhere to belong to, someone to rely upon. You come here out of your fear. You are searching for a sort of beautiful imprisonment – so that you can live without any awareness.

And he goes on with great eloquence. And I think he’s right. Would like to have met him, or sat as his feet as many did.
