It is perfect as it is….OSHO
The whole idea of perfectionism creates only neurosis, pathology and a derangement of the mind. I teach you the ordinary. I teach you the simple, I teach you the natural, I teach you that you are where you have been trying to reach, exactly at home. Don’t waste your time running here and there.
But you have been told always to become something, someone — that’s why every religion is against me, all the moralists are against me.
I can understand, because if I am right then all the traditions and all the teachings that have been driving humanity towards some faraway goal are proven absolutely criminal. Because they have taken away people’s chance to live, chance to love, chance to sing, chance to dance.
And in the ultimate sense, the very opportunity to feel the divine in the herenow. Unless you can feel the divine in the mundane, you are not an intelligent person. If you cannot manage in your small things an expression of gratitude, joy, awareness, then you are bound to remain miserable — not only in this life but perhaps for many lives.
I can’t see much opportunity for you to find a man like me again. You will meet all those religious teachers, missionaries… try to find one and you will find a thousand. But I am absolutely respectful to your ordinariness. My reverence for the mundane is absolute; I don’t want to improve on anything. For centuries people have been improving and improving and improving, and nothing is improved.
Just give me a chance. Stop improving.
And you will be surprised to know that the energy that was involved in improving becomes your dance, your celebration.
