"There is some misunderstanding. There is no question in the world which cannot be asked. Yes, there are answers which cannot be answered. A question always comes from the mind; hence the mind always finds..."

Osho continues:
"But this is something that happens very rarely to very blessed souls. You should feel blissful, fortunate and grateful to existence.

"The misunderstanding is also very natural, because the mind is well acquainted only with questions. When for the first time you are pregnant with an answer, it is a natural misunderstanding of the mind that there is some question because the answer, mind knows not, and the answer, mind cannot express.

"You are saying, 'What to do with the question when there are no words for it?' Then it is absolutely certain it is not a question. It is an answer, and you are not supposed to do anything at all.

"A question has to be solved:

"An answer has to be lived.

"So what is arising in you – the peace, the silence, the joy that I can see in your eyes, on your face, the tremendous change…because you used to be very serious…. You have moved almost one-hundred-and-eighty degrees. You radiate joy.

"Drop the misunderstanding that it is a question and rejoice that it is the answer. It will never find any words; it has never found any expression. Yes, your eyes may show it, your face may radiate it, your very gestures may have the grace of it, but words are too small and too trivial and too mundane – their approach is very limited.

"The answer is beyond the mind. Those who go on seeking through the mind go on coming upon new questions. The very few people who have found the answer are those who have gone beyond mind, beyond words, beyond language.

"You are saying, 'And what to do with the secrets in our hearts when there is no way to express them?' Nothing has to be done; they will find their way of their own accord.

"You have to understand one thing very clearly: there are things which you cannot do, but which happen. If somebody says to you, 'love me'…now, love cannot be commanded, love cannot be ordered, and if – according to the order and according to the commandment – you make an effort to love, it is going to be phony; it cannot be an authentic reality."
