“There is nothing to feel guilty about.”

“There is nothing to feel guilty about. It is immensely significant that the trees don’t listen to Catholic priests. Otherwise, they would make the roses feel guilty: ‘Why do you have thorns?’ And the rose, dancing in the wind, in the rain, in the sun, would suddenly become sad. The dance would disappear; the joy would disappear; the fragrance would disappear. Now the thorn would become its only reality, a wound – ‘Why do you have thorns?’

… The whole existence is guiltless. And the moment a person becomes guiltless, they become part of the universal flow of life. That is enlightenment, a guiltless consciousness, rejoicing in everything that life makes available: the light is beautiful; so is darkness.”

OSHO

I absolutely agree that the whole existence is guiltless. Yes, enlightenment is a guiltless or guilt-free consciousness that rejoices in everything that life makes available, including light and darkness. I like what he said about trees and roses don’t listen to priests or the dance and joy and fragrance might disappear because it demonstrates the fact that Nature is non-religious, holistic and liberating, unlike organised religions that tend to be separatist, dogmatic and oppressive. That’s why I love Nature so much – there is joy, there is fragrance, there is freedom to be our authentic and unique self, and there is also a pleasant rest and quietude where we feel at one with Divine Love. I think that is why Jesus chose to retreat to the wilderness too, so as to find solace and peace from religious establishments and societal conditionings.

  1. We must not feel guilty for anything, after all we are growing where we’ve been planted, for errors receive God’s abundant forgiveness. yesterday is gone,tomorrow is filled is hope of something better. for now we dance at the bliss of knowing we are free to be who we are.

    1. Yes, this is so true. I like especially what you wrote here: “yesterday is gone,tomorrow is filled is hope of something better. for now we dance at the bliss of knowing we are free to be who we are.” Thanks for your encouraging words and refreshing insights.
