Osho: Tathata...Total Acceptance!


Dear Friends, here is the Spiritual Meaning of “Let Go…!” – By Osho.

Please reflect on these wonderful words …
                                                   
“…Acceptance is one of the most beautiful words. Buddhists, the followers of Buddha, have a term for it which is even deeper than the English word ‘acceptance’; it is “Tathata”. Which means saying ‘yes’ so totally that, in your being there is no division. You become one in your yes. You say ‘yes’ so totally that, there does not exists ‘no’ inside you, no denial.

                      

Tathata, is “total acceptance”. It is not that the major part of your mind, the major part of your being decides on “yes”, and the minor still goes on saying “no”. Then it is conflict. Any day the majority may become a minority, and the minority may become a majority. There exists an inner politics. 


Acceptance, total acceptance, Tathata, means without any political decision …total. 

There is nobody who says ‘no’ within you, not even a fragment, because even a fragment can be destructive. And even if part of you says ‘no’ you cannot receive the true teaching.

God is available, 
Truth is available, 
Light is available, 
but you are such a miser in receiving. 
You are not only a miser in giving, you are a miser in receiving also. 
                           
A miser has to be a miser whatsoever he does. You cannot give; you cannot receive. Giving and receiving are two aspects of the same coin. If you can give, you can also receive. Hence, so much insistence on giving away whatsoever you can give … give with love, so that you can become capable of receiving more and more.
It is just like inhalation and exhalation. 
If you exhale deeply, automatically you will inhale deeply. If you want to inhale deeply, you will have to exhale deeply ….there is no other way. And life is a balance between exhalation and inhalation. If you are afraid of exhalation your breathing will become shallow. Then your inhalation cannot be very deep …it is impossible. Exhalation is giving … giving whatsoever you can give. The more you give, the more you become capable of receiving.


                                               
…And when you give completely, utterly, totally, that is the moment of total acceptance, Tathata….!”

                          

Have a Blissful Day Friends!
