The coming hundred years are going to be more and more irrational.
I do not ordinarily make prophecies, but about this I am absolutely prophetic: the coming hundred years are going to be more and more irrational, and more and more mystical.
The second thing: After a hundred years people will be perfectly able to understand why I was misunderstood – because I am the beginning of the mystical, the irrational.
I am a discontinuity with the past.
The past cannot understand me; only the future will understand.
The past can only condemn me. It cannot understand me, it cannot answer me, it cannot argue with me; it can only condemn me. Only the future… as man becomes more and more available to the mysterious, to the meaningless yet significant.
The rose is meaningless – but it is so significant, so beautiful.
The whole existence is significant, but not meaningful.
Meaning is of the mind, and significance is of the heart.
Osho, The Osho Upanishad, Ch 16, Q 1 (excerpt)
