Everybody wants to become extraordinary….OSHO

Sannyas has to be a real break away. A loving surrender to the new....

Everybody wants to become extraordinary....

Everybody wants to become extraordinary.
That is the search of the ego:
to be someone who is special,
to be someone who is unique, incomparable.
And this is the paradox:
The more you try to be exceptional,
the more ordinary you look
because everybody is after extraordinariness.
It is such an ordinary desire.

If you become ordinary,
the very search to be ordinary is extraordinary
because rarely does somebody want to be just nobody,
rarely does somebody want to be just a hollow, empty space.
This is really extraordinary in a way
because nobody wants it.
And when you become ordinary,
you become extraordinary,
and, of course, suddenly you discover that
without searching you have become unique.
