"Ta Hui still continues with the meaning of release. The question is so fundamental that however often it has to be repeated it will never be said completely.
"There are things which you can only..."

Osho continues:
"But they are only fingers pointing to the moon.

"Hence it has to be again and again hammered on your conditioned mind from different aspects what is the meaning of release. Ta Hui gives you a few examples of when the release did happen. And it happened absolutely irrationally; there was no necessity for it to happen – except that the disciple was ripe and the master's insight was so clear that he did not miss the moment. He struck, he slapped, he shouted, he did something, and suddenly there was an opening – the clouds disappeared.

"When a woman is pregnant she knows she is pregnant, and when the child is nine months old the mother knows that the time has come to receive a new guest in the world. There are no indications from When a woman is pregnant she knows she is pregnant, and when the child is nine months old the mother knows that the time has come to receive a new guest in the world. the child, but the very ripening has its own impact.

"Scientists have been working for almost half a century on bees, because they suspect that bees know a certain kind of language. It is very exciting to find out what kind of language bees use; it will open up a tremendously new area of communication. One bee goes miles in a certain direction for no reason at all – but she finds the place where flowers are blossoming, and she goes directly to those flowers, as if she is following a map.

"Once she has found the flowers she returns, and she dances in a certain way before the whole crowd of bees who are watching the dance. The dance has all the indications – in which direction, how far away you will find the flowers – and suddenly thousands of bees start moving towards that direction, without any failure, without going in any other direction."
