A Quote Found in Villa Sumaya's Baño


"When Nothing Works... Just Simply Rest...
This has been a long search but now it has come to a point where you can relax; no need to search anymore, you can rest now. And what you have not found through search will be found through rest. There are things which can be found only if you seek; those are worldly things: money, power, prestige. And there are things which you can never find by seeking and searching; those are other worldly things: love, meditation, God. For them you have to learn a totally new technique, a new strategy, the strategy of let-go, the technique of tremendous restfulness.
So make it a point now that for at least one hour you will be simply resting, as if there is nothing to do, nowhere to go, nothing to achieve. Disolvling, melting into existence, just like an ice cube melting in the early sun, disappearing, evaporating, a dewdrop slipping from the lotus leaf to the lake. Make it a point everyday at least for one hour you will be so totally in rest that you will not be, that you will become almost absent. In that absence, God's presence is felt: when you are not, God is." --Osho
