Being and Becoming

Remain in wonder if you want the mysteries to open up for you. Mysteries never open up for those who go on questioning. Questioners sooner or later end up in libraries. Questioners sooner or later end up with scriptures, because scriptures are full of answers. And answers are dangerous, they kill your wonder. All the Buddhas of all the ages have been telling you a very simple fact: Be; don't try to become. Within these two words be and becoming, your whole life is contained. Being is Enlightenment, becoming is ignorance.

    Osho sounds good but he didn't live the teaching. Instead he loved expensive cars and led many devotees not to self enquiry but rather to confusion and hysteria.
    A great mind but fell from grace. He certainly had his limitations. His last weeks in America were a debacle!
