"There is much more yet to happen. What has happened to you is immense. What will happen to you will be greater, but remember one thing: it is never enough.
"Existence is such an abundance..."

Osho continues:
"That is your thankfulness, that is your gratitude, that is your hallelujah – a dance which is invisible, a song which is not heard, a beauty which cannot be painted, described. And only when we have come to the point where words are to be left behind does what I call religiousness begin. I do not say renounce the world, but I certainly say move towards the moment when you will have to renounce the word.

"The Bible says, 'In the beginning was the word.' Nobody knows about the beginning. Nobody can know about the beginning, because nobody can be a witness about the beginning. If somebody had been witnessing the beginning then it would not have been the beginning, because somebody was already there.

"The Bible may be right, may be wrong, about the beginning, but I say unto you: In the end there is no word. And that has been witnessed by thousands of mystics in thousands of years past.

"And the moment you come to realize that words are slipping out of your hands, that the boundary line of language is crosseda tremendous innocence, a new childhood. For the first time you can understand that which cannot be spoken. You can understand the message of the wind blowing through the pine trees, you can understand the poetry of the sound of running water.

"To be freed from language is to be freed from all human limitations. Language is the greatest imprisonment.

"I am happy that you are feeling great difficulty in expressing something that you are experiencing. Slowly, it will become more and more clear that there is no word, no language; no concept to explain it, to express it. Just silence is the only answer to all your questions, the only meeting with existence without any barrier, any wall.

"As the language disappears, the mind is no longer of any use. For the first time you contact existence directly, without the mediation of the mind – and that experience is enlightenment. And nobody is far away from it; it is within everybody's reach.

"But people are searching for their happiness where it does not exist. They are looking for living waters in deserts."
