plunge in...

Osho says -

The mind is a great philosopher. And life is not a philosophy, life is a reality. And philosophy is an escape from reality; philosophy means thinking.

Life is — there is no question of thought. You can simply jump into it.

The ancient pond
a frog jumps in
the sound

Just like that, you can jump into this ancient pond of life.
You can know it only by jumping into it. There is no other way to know life;
thinking about it is the surest way to miss it

The mental imagery that these words create is remarkable.

It brings to mind the old fable of a frog who had lived his entire life in a well. For the frog the entire world was his well. Existence of something beyond the walls was something beyond his imagination. One fine day, upon being challenged by someone he stepped out of the well and what he encountered came as a real shock to him. The external reality threatened all his existing notions and needed a new perspective. Which, as is also the case with most of us, he did not have the courage to adapt to. And, like most of us, he decided to plunge back into to the safety and security of his well.

Life is motion.Yet, most of the time, all that we do is mere quasi-movement.

who am i ?

"We don't know who we are until we see what we can do"

Is that the answer to my quest for self-discovery ?
