Osho,
I don't want to be this, I don't want to be that; I don't want to be here, I don't want to be there; I don't want to live, I don't want to die; I don't want to cry, I don't want to laugh; I can't be passive, I can't be active; I can't will and I can't surrender.
Osho,
I don't want to be this, I don't want to be that; I don't want to be here, I don't want to be there; I don't want to live, I don't want to die; I don't want to cry, I don't want to laugh; I can't be passive, I can't be active; I can't will and I can't surrender.

Osho continues:
"Mind is a movement; it is a constant movement.

"So what can be done? – don't try to be this or that; just be in between. If you can be in between, you transcend mind. Just watch, be a witness. Don't do anything; just observe mind going from A to B, from B to A again; mind moving from one side to the other like a pendulum of an old clock: from left to right, from right to left.

"Have you watched a pendulum? When it is going to the left, it is gathering momentum to go to the right. On the surface it is going to the left; deep inside, it is gathering momentum to go to the opposite pole. When it is going to the right it is being prepared to go to the left.

"When you love a person through the mind, you are already getting ready to hate him. There is a poem by D. H. Lawrence in which he says, 'The moment I say to my beloved, 'I love you', I have already started hating her. The moment I say to my beloved, 'I will be forever and forever with you,' I have already departed.' The divorce is on the way. In the very moment you are getting married, divorce is on the way.

"This is the way of the mind, how the mind functions. Just try to understand the functioning of the mind, otherwise you will always be in chaos, confusion, in a sort of insanity. Become a watcher. Get out of the traffic of the mind, stand by the side of the road and just see. And when I say just see, I mean don't evaluate, don't judge. Don't say, 'This is good, that is wrong.' Once you say, 'This is good,' you are no more a witness: you have jumped into the river; you are already identified, you are already in trouble. Just stand by the side of the road, or, sit on the bank of a river and let the river flow wherever it goes. You are not concerned; it is none of your business. Unconcerned, indifferent, just watching, you will suddenly be in between: neither this nor that."
