Excerpt from: When the Shoe Fits
"History always remembers foolish people because fools make history and fools write it.

"Chuang Tzu makes no history, because easy is right. How can you make history if you are easy? If you win a war and kill millions of people you make history. If you just brush your teeth in the morning how can you make history? And easy is right! You take a bath, and you sing a little song…how can you make history? You eat your food and you silently go to sleep without any dreams – how can you make history? No, history takes no notice of persons who are easy and natural. History takes notice of people who are mad, obsessed with something, who create trouble in some way or other.

"Difficult is wrong, easy is right. Be easy and don’t try to be in history. Leave it for fools and mad people, you just stay out of it…because you cannot have both. Either you can have life or you can be remembered in history. If you have life, you will be just an easy and simple person doing simple and small things and enjoying them. You will not create any trouble for anybody; nobody will take any notice of you. You will exist as if you never existed. That is what easy is – existing as if you are not existing, existing as if you are not. Not in anyone’s way, nobody will know about you, but there is no need. You will enjoy; you will attain to the highest peak of ecstasy. Easy is right." Osho
