Osho – Separation
There is only a way of Union, but, in the other hand, there are several ways of living a separation. It has been reaching all the sectors of human experience.
Although they belong to the same specie, it is dominant between men that they are totally independent individuals from one another, just like soap bubbles at the wind, which precise limits make us believe we are distinct beings.
The seven billion people of this planet have singular physical characteristics that reinforce the illusion of separation. There is no finger print, physiognomy, voice tone or iris equal between them. Their governments catalogue them like goods, providing to each one different number that guarantee their absolute identities.
The chips they once have implanted under the skin will consume such differences.
How to resist to such a well structured idea?
When asked to someone: “Who are you”?, they soon make an endless list containing name, surname, city, nationality, profession, foliation, birth date, civil state, preferences, and if necessary, numbers and more numbers…
You seize yourselves with nails and teeth to the idea that you are somebody.
Without this, their ego succumb rapidly and death seems to come without contestation, because all the sense of self-importance of a man lies in there, in the ghost called “I”.
Try someday, when someone asks you who you are, to answer “I am”.
Right here the confusion is created. Do not give any clue about you to the other. Insist, bravely, to the attempts and confirm: I am. There is a big chance that you be called “crazy”, or at least, eccentric. There is even the danger of being wiped out from the situation, as nothing really has existed.
Your interlocutor will let you speaking alone if you insist in not identifying yourself, such is the obsession on the idea of “I”.
This hunger of individuality goes up in a social scale and it is repeated when referring to families, cities, countries, teams, groups and organization that resemble for certain characteristics, what increases even more the sensation of self identity.
It comes to the limit of creating flags and hymns with the purpose of demark even more the territory. If they could, they would urinate on the others…
It is terrible the human need of belonging. To be a good is literally to live without freedom, without active voice, surfing in the collective paranoid.
But, if we go beyond, we have a paradox, the man considers himself an individual, but deep inside, he wants to be diluted in any group, in the best bovine style.
The most interesting is that, not even inside a group to which he belongs in, the man lives in harmony. Who can say with the others!
They insist in getting married, so that in the honeymoon they realize it would be better to have their own company, until death tear them apart from themselves. They have children and spill their authority and experience over them, suffocating them with protection.
They project in the children their frustrated aspirations.
They dispute with co-workers, fight in traffic with strangers, oppress the equal in schools, anyway, in every corner there is more and more oppositions that must be beat.
All this because man is divorcing from himself, a litigation divorce between his human aspects and the divine, and consequently apart from his brothers, nature and God.
To kill, ignore the ask for help of someone, mistreat an animal or despoil the environment are things from the same origin – the idea and the feeling of separation.
All the problems of humanity would be solved if we understood and accepted that there is only one Conscience that has diffused so that from diversity would come growth and evolution.
We do not need to be always right, to give the last word in everything and to defend ourselves like we were in an eternal fight: Me against the Rest. It is necessary to stop fighting and surrender to peace that lives in our center.
This war has started a long time ago, with the first humans, but it has a certain date to end this planet. The Whole has other plans to this beautiful place called Earth.
Therefore, warriors, your days are counted. Pack your things if you want to continue fighting your endless fights. The train that will take you to new battle fields is leaving to far from here.
Have a nice trip!
