Osho continues:
"Even that small taste of enlightenment will be enough for you to stop here and now in this moment. You will forget all desires, enlightenment included.

"If a situation can be created in which you are so blissful, so contented, that just for a moment there is no desire in your mind, you have learned a great lesson: that if this state of no-desire can continue every moment, you need not bother about enlightenment. It will come to you, you do not have to go to it. It is not an object sitting somewhere that you have to desire and find and work hard and go to it. It is simply your own state when there is no desire.

"This desirelessness is the most blissful state possible, and enlightenment is another name for it. Knowing it even for one moment is enough, because you are never given by life two moments together; it is always one moment. And if you know the secret, the alchemy of transforming this moment, you know the whole secret of transforming life, because the next moment will also be the same. You can do to it what you have done before: you can continue in desirelessness.

"Being in my presence – I am using it as a device to avoid any confusion and puzzle in your mind. I can give you the taste, and then the taste will take care of you. First, the desire for enlightenment will look so far away. And by and by you will forget all about it because you will be in it, it will be within you. And certainly in the beginning it looks like a beautiful dream, because we are accustomed to reality and its ugliness. We know beauty only in dreams.

"So whenever something like this happens to you even while you are fully awake, it feels as if it is a dream – reality cannot be so nourishing, so tremendously beautiful, so magnificent; reality cannot have this magic. But I tell you, reality is more magical than any dream. It is more beautiful than any dream. It is more poetic than the greatest poetries of the world.

"The reality that we know is not the true reality; it is the reality seen through an ugly mind which projects itself on reality."
