life cannot be so intense as death…..OSHO

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

life cannot be so intense as death.....


Fear will give you fearlessness.


Out of anger will come compassion.


Out of the understanding of hate, love will be born to you.


But this happens not in a conflict, this happens in a passing-through with alert awareness.


Accept, and pass through it.


And if you make it a point to pass through every experience, then there will be death, the most intense experience.


Life is nothing before it because life cannot be so intense as death.


Life is spread out over a long time —  seventy years, one hundred years.


Death is intense because it is not spread out —  it is in a single moment.


Life has to pass one hundred years or seventy years, it cannot be so intense.


Death comes in a single moment; it comes whole, not fragmentary.


It will be so intense you cannot know anything more intense.


But if you are afraid, if before death comes you have escaped, if you have become unconscious because of the fear, you have missed one of the golden opportunities, the golden gate.


If your whole life you have been accepting things, when death comes, patiently, passively you will accept and enter into it without any effort to escape.


If you can enter death passively, silently, without any effort, death disappears.?
