Osho Says: “A disciple asked a Zen master, “If someone were to ask me a hundred years from now what I thought was your deepest understanding, what should I say?” The master replied, “Tell him I said: This is it!! Now what type of answer is this? — This is it! He indicated to the immediate reality: This. Zen people talk about ‘this’. Certainly their understanding is deeper — because ‘that’ is again in the future, far away; ‘this’ is present. This is that. This shore is the other shore.
This life is the only life, and this moment is eternity. If you can live this moment, if you can be here this moment, then everything takes care of itself. Then you need not be anxious. Then there is no need to ask — before you ask, the answer is delivered. The answer has been always there, but we are not aware. So the whole effort of Zen is how to bring awareness to you.”
