    Walk Without Feet, Fly Without Wings and Think Without Mind


    Walk Without Feet, Fly Without Wings and Think Without Mind


    CHAPTER 1


    Fly Without Wings
    1 January 1978 am in Buddha Hall

    The first question:

    Question 1

    OSHO, WHAT EXACTLY, IN SIMPLE WORDS, ARE YOU TRYING TO TEACH? WHAT IS YOUR
    EXACT MESSAGE TO HUMANITY AT LARGE? – AGAIN IN SIMPLE LANGUAGE THAT I CAN
    UNDERSTAND.
    WALK WITHOUT FEET
    FLY WITHOUT WINGS AND
    THINK WITHOUT MIND
    THAT’S MY TEACHING.

    It cannot be made more exact than that. Life is so mysterious that you
    cannot reduce it to exact formulas. That is not possible. That will be unjust and unfair to life. A
    mystery has to remain a mystery.

    If you reduce the mystery to a formula, you are being violent to reality. No explanation can explain
    away life. No fact can contain its truth.
    You ask me: WHAT EXACTLY, IN SIMPLE WORDS, ARE YOU TRYING TO TEACH?

    Only some negative things can be said – that I am trying to destroy the mind; that I have come to
    destroy, not to fulfill... because unless the old mind is destroyed utterly, the new will not be born. It
    is out of destruction that creativity arises. It is out of death that life blooms.

    My whole work here consists in destroying the mind, its hold upon you; in destroying the roots of the
    mind so that you can be free in each moment of your life, so that you can be without a past. To be
    with a past is to be in a prison. The bigger the past, the more you are burdened with it. The more
    you are burdened with the past, the more you become in-capable of living in the present. Then the
    present is only a word – you don’t experience it. And truth is always in the present. Past is only
    memory, and future imagination. One is no more; one has yet to be. Between the two is this small
    precious moment.

    And you can be in contact with this precious moment only if there is no mind. Mind means past and
    future. Either the mind thinks of that which has gone, or of that which is to come; either of yesterdays
    or of tomorrows.

    Jesus says to his disciples: Look at the lilies in the field – how beautiful they are! Even Solomon
    in all his glory was not arrayed as one of these. And they spin not, they weave not, they work not.
    They don’t think of the morrow... What is the beauty of the lilies in the field? They live in the present.
    Except for man, the existence knows no past, no future. Except for man, there is no misery. Except
    for man, there is no hell.

    By destroying your mind and your past, I am bringing you back home so Adam can enter again into
    the Garden of Eden.

    But don’t ask me to be exact – that I cannot do. I cannot do it because I respect life so much. And I
    cannot be untrue to life. How can I be exact about a roseflower? And how can I be exact about the
    innocent eyes of a child? And how can I be exact about the beautiful form of a woman? How can
    I be exact about the clouds in the sky, and the rivers and the mountains and the stars? Life is so
    elusive, so mysterious, and life is such flux... everything continuously changing.
