Osho - My Way of Life is Not Philosophy

In this excellent video, Osho explains the difference between seeing/knowing and thinking/philosophizing. No philosopher has ever been able to know the truth. All the philosophers have been thinking about the truth. But thinking about the truth is an impossibility. Either you know it, or you don't.

Why seek happiness?
When the quest only defines sadness.
Breath deep and sit.
For this is it!

It is there when you are lost within it,
missing when you are looking for it;
So do not let others tell you how it is,
if they knew they would know it was not possible to say.

nice, vid :-)

although it seems philosophy is needed on the road to non-philosophy as we must work and work on ideas until we realise for certain that is all they are, so i thought of this..

Awesome posts Tao. I agree about philosophy on the road to non-philosophy as I have a philosophy degree which seems meaningless now, though was completely necessary to "get" where I am now. It's like the path to realizing there is no path. Thanks for the great comments.
