Only what you think is possible, is possible.
All that is born, all that is created, all the elements of nature are interwoven and united with each other. All that is composed shall be decomposed—everything returns to its roots; matter returns to the origins of matter…
For Tantra, everything is holy. Remember this: for Tantra, Everything is holy, nothing is unholy. For an irreligious person, everything is unholy and for so-called religious persons something is holy and something else is unholy. Tantra says everything is holy, that is why we cannot understand it. It is the deepest non-dual standpoint - if we can call it a standpoint. Because any standpoint is bound to be dual and Tantra is not against anything, it is not any standpoint. It is a felt unity, a lived unity.
There are two paths, Yoga and Tantra. Tantra could not be as appealing because of our crippled minds. But for someone who is healthy inside, not in chaos, Tantra has a beauty. Only such a person can understand what Tantra is. Yoga has an easy appeal because of our disturbed minds. Remember, it is ultimately your mind that makes anything attractive or unattractive. You are the deciding factor.
- Osho, Tantra: The Way Of Acceptance
The body is like Mary and each of us has a Jesus inside.
Who is not in labor, holy labor? Every creature is.
See the value of true art when the earth or a soul is in
the mood to create beauty,
for the witness might then for a moment know beyond
any doubt, God is really there within,
so innocently drawing life from us with Her umbilical
though also needing to be born, yes God also needs to be
birth from a hand’s loving touch, birth from a song breathing
life into this world.
The body is like Mary, and each of us, each of us, has a
RUMI (translated by Daniel Ladinsky)
It is easier to start wars than to end them. It is easier to blame others than to look inward; to see what is different about someone than to find the things we share. But we should choose the right path, not just the easy path. There is also one rule that lies at the heart of every religion – that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. This truth transcends nations and peoples – a belief that isn’t new; that isn’t black or white or brown; that isn’t Christian, or Muslim or Jew. It’s a belief that pulsed in the cradle of civilization, and that still beats in the heart of billions.
