One should try to see life - as a divine gift-OSHO VISION


One should try to see life - as a divine gift. It is of tremendous value. Just to be is such a benediction, but because of our complaining mind and our grumbling mind, we never see the beauty that has already happened. We never see the treasure that has already been handed over to us.
     For small things we go on being negative and the great blessing of life simply passes by us. So try to see it. There are troubles, but they are nothing compared to the beauty that life makes available. There are anxieties . . .I am not saying it is all a bed of roses; there are thorns - but negligible. And in fact they make roses more beautiful. They help,  they enhance life by contrast.
     There is hatred and there is anger and there is jealousy, but they all function as a contrast to love. Without them, love will not be possible. There is death, there is misery, there is illness, there is disease, but they all make life possible. So always look to the positive -- that is the meaning of the name.
     If you start looking towards the positive, the negative loses meaning, because whatsoever we look at, we pour energy into. Then it surrounds us more and more. If you pay attention to the wrong, you are feeding the wrong. Attention is food -- very subtle food, very vital food.
     So just don't pay attention to the wrong. Don't pay attention to the black side of things. It is there -- accept it. Nobody is denying it, but what is the point of paying too much attention to it? That is a little pathological. It is a perversion, but everybody is doing that. That's how we go on missing god.
     God is possible only when your eyes are absolutely positive, when your eyes have no flaw of negativity in them. Suddenly you see that god has always been there. He is your surround. He is within and without. This is what I call preparation -- to make eyes absolutely flawless . . .and negativity is the flaw.
     So whatsoever happens, take it rightly. Even if it gives pain, remember that it must be there, because without it pleasure is not possible. Accept it. That is the meaning of prasadam. It is one of the most beautiful words. When you go to a saint in India, he gives you something as prasad . . .  maybe a little sweet or a fruit.
     I don t give you any sweet, any fruit. I give you to yourself - that's my prasad.
