Existence

Existence is not a problem to be solved, it is a mystery to be lived. A problem is something created by the mind; a mystery is something which is there, not created by the mind.
A problem has an ugliness in it, like disease. A mystery is beautiful. With a problem, immediately a fight arises. You have to solve it; something is wrong, you have to put it right; something is missing, you have to supply the missing link.
With a mystery there is no question like that. The moon arises in the night.... It is not a problem, it is a mystery. You have to live with it. You have to dance with it. . You have to sing with it, or you can be just silent with it.
Something mysterious surrounds you..........(OSHO)

  11. Thanks for sharing such noble thoughts. It is actually we ourselves who have to justify our existence. Only breathing in and out does not constitute this existence, we have to prove ourselves continuously. We have to ask ourselves: Who am I?
