“Life is a mystery; that means it cannot be solved. And when all efforts to solve it prove futile, the mystery dawns upon you. Then the doors are open; then you are invited. As a knower, nobody enters the divine; as a child, ignorant, not knowing at all – the mystery embraces you. With a knowing mind you are clever, not innocent. Innocence is the door.”
Kabir was a 15th century mystic and weaver. Taking his songs as a starting point, Osho shares insights into such questions as love, the implications of money, how people communicate with each other, the longing for personal freedom, and finding happiness beyond our desires. All these are issues woven into the fabric of life.
The book also introduces and explains in detail the workings of the OSHO Kundalini Meditation, which – when done rightly – helps “your whole energy to be ecstatic and move upwards into joy and bliss.”
