Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense. Don’t try to create a wall of knowledge around you. Whatsoever experience comes to you, let it happen, and then go on dropping it. Go on cleaning your mind continuously; go on dying to the past so you remain in the present, herenow, as if just born, just a baby. ~ Osho

This is exactly same message as the Bible tell us about, only in different words;  Matthew 18:3 says: “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven”. Some believe that heaven can be experienced here and now, while others believe that we have to die first …. but it is the same heaven we all seek together…

We are all one, and we are all reaching for the same goal “Love and happiness”, we only use different paths to get there.

When we stop seeking happiness, happiness comes by itself. It is a common mistake to believe we have to work hard for happiness, or that happiness is conditioned by what we have, and who we are in society. Happiness is the experience of mind when there is no presence of fear. That’s all. It’s simple. As with everything in the truly spiritual life, that which is valuable comes only when we have relinquished that which is invaluable – when we have let go. So don’t seek happiness, let go of your fears and obsessions, let go of your doubts and worries, and look, there it is! May all beings be happy. ~ Michael Kewley

Question: IS IT TO ENJOY LIFE AND NOT WORRY ABOUT TOMORROW?
Answere: There is no tomorrow. If there is tomorrow, you cannot stop worrying about it. Tomorrow never comes, it is a process of worrying. Nor is there any yesterday. One is no more, one is not yet. All that is in our hands is the present moment, now, here. And this is a miraculous experience. If there is no yesterday, no tomorrow, and this very moment you are silent, all worrying disappears. All imagining, dreaming, projecting disappears. And it is not that you have to enjoy this moment. That rejoicing arises out of this moment. But you are never here, you are always somewhere else. You are never in the now, you are always then. Otherwise, everything is available, but you are absent. I want my people to understand a very simple fact — not a philosophy, something existential, not philosophical — be present to this moment and then see what happens.
