flowers and flowers

"Don't fight with the ego, otherwise the ego will eat you! The very fight will destroy you. Fighting with anything non-existent is the most dangerous thing in the world. It is like fighting with darkness; if you start fighting with darkness, wrestling, even if you are a Mohammed Ali you are not going to win. Soon you will be tired, exhausted, and you will fall flat on the ground, thinking that darkness seems to be very powerful. Darkness is not powerful, darkness is not weak, because darkness does not exist at all. All that you need is just a small candle and the darkness will be gone. I call that small candle meditation, and out of that small light thousands of flowers blossom within your heart: love blossoms, freedom blossoms, truth blossoms, godliness blossoms.... There is no end to it -- it is an eternal garden. Flowers and flowers... your whole being becomes fragrant." Osho

the still life of life

The still life of life
like woven objects in daily toil
we listen for the freedom
and find the blockage of its trail; also daily.
But from the beginning to no end,
do we seek out some answers?
That freedom never exists
unless it is born within.
That ties are all irrelevant unless tied to now.
That we are no less freed by the personal life trail,
than it is set free by us.
So along no road to destiny will wind blow in our face
but that of important learning
in each breath of freedom and every step
we've trod
and now it is certain that still life is life
no other has yet been discovered
