Love Is A State Of Being

When I met Rajneesh many years ago, he gave me the name, Swami Deva Ninad, which means “Divine sound of the waterfall.”

Many friends still call me, “Ninad.”

Like the flowers in this quote from Osho, the water in the waterfall keeps on flowing, no matter who observes it.

Love Is A State Of Being

OshoThe highest state of Love is not a relationship at all, it is simply a state of your Being. Just as trees are green, a lover is loving. They are not green for particular persons, it is not that when you come they become green. The flower goes on spreading it’s fragrance whether anybody comes or not, whether anybody appreciates or not. The flower does not start releasing its fragrance when it sees that a great poet is coming by – ‘Now this man will appreciate, now this man will be able to understand who I am.’ And it does not close its doors when it sees that a stupid, idiotic person is passing there – insensitive, dull, a politician or something like that. It does not close itself – ‘What is the point? Why cast pearls before swine?’. No, the flower goes on spreading its fragrance. It is a state of being, not a relationship…

Osho is certainly a controversial figure in the history of spirituality.

However, I found him to be a great teacher and a wonderful speaker.

My first encounter with him was truly amazing. His presence and attention on me was inviting.

That’s why I took initiation and received my name.

Listen to his words and the calmness in his voice and you will see why he was one of my root teachers.

Please share what you think about Osho.
