"The story is simple, but difficult to understand. It is always so. The more simple a thing the more difficult it is to understand. To understand, something complex is needed; to understand, you have to..."

Osho continues:
"It is a tautology.

"One of the most penetrating minds of this century, G.E.Moore, has written a book, Principia Ethica. The whole book consists of a very persistent effort to define what is good. Making efforts from all directions, in two or three hundred pages – and two, three hundred pages of G.E.Moore is worth three thousand pages of anybody else – he comes to the conclusion that good is indefinable. It cannot be defined, it is such a simple quality. When something is complex there are many things in it; you can define one thing by another that is present there. If you and I are in a room and you ask me, 'Who are you?' I can at least say I am not you. This will be-come the definition, the indication. But if I am alone in the room and I ask myself the question, 'Who am I?' the question resounds but there is no answer. How to define it?

"That is why God has been missed. Intellect denies it, reason says no. God is the simplest denominator in existence – the most simple and the most basic. The mind stops. There is nothing other than God, so how to define God? He is alone in the room. That is why religions have been trying to divide; then definition is possible. They say, 'This world is not that. God is not the world, God is not matter, God is not body, God is not desire.' These are ways to define.

"You have to put something against something, then a boundary can be drawn. How do you draw a boundary if there is no neighbor? Where do you place the fence of your house if there is no neighborhood? If there is no one beside you how can you fence in your house? Your house boundary consists of the presence of your neighbor. God is alone, he has no neighbor. Where does he begin? Where does he end? Nowhere. How can you define God? Just to define God, the Devil was created. God is not the Devil – at least this much can be said. You may not be able to say what God is but you can say what he is not: God is not the world."
