“Feel happy! Dance with your silence,” states Osho. Published in The Economic Times on November 11, 2021.
In this world of consciousness, nothing is as helpful as celebration. Celebration is like watering a plant. Worry is just the opposite of celebration; it is just like cutting the roots. Feel happy! Dance with your silence. This moment it is there – enough. Tomorrow will take care of itself. This moment is too much; why not live it, celebrate it, share it, enjoy it? Let it become a song, a dance, a poetry; let it be creative. Let your silence be creative; do something with it.
Millions of things are possible because nothing is more creative than silence. No need to become a very great painter, a Picasso. No need to become a great poet. Those ambitions of being great are of the mind, not of the silence. In your own way, howsoever small, sing a song, dance a little, celebrate, and you will find the next moment brings more silence. And once you know that the more you celebrate, the more is given to you; the more you share, the more you become capable of receiving it – each moment it keeps growing.
If you want the next moment to be unhappy, you will have to become unhappy in this moment, because out of unhappiness, unhappiness is born; out of happiness, happiness is born. Whatsoever you want to reap in the next moment, you will have to sow right now. For, the next moment is already here.
