God is more like a dancer. You cannot separate the dancer from the dance. He is Nataraja… the dancer of all the dancers, the master of all the dancers. He is dancing in the leaf, in the flower, in the raindrops, in the river, in the peacock. All over is his dance. He has not created the world; he IS the world…
~ Osho, Ecstasy The Forgotten Language
The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it, and he takes pleasure in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing, and life would not be worth living. I am not speaking, of course, of the beauty which strikes the senses, of the beauty of qualities and appearances. I am far from despising this, but it has nothing to do with science. What I mean is that more intimate beauty which comes from the harmonious order of its parts, and which a pure intelligence can grasp.
~ Henri Poincaré, ‘Science and Method’
Let the world call you lazy
for not running about
like a frightened ghost.
Just be quiet inside yourself.
Don’t bother about knowing
how things should be
and simply begin observing without
prejudice, projections or desires.
Notice how life flows of its own accord.
Nothing here is a chaos, but a harmony.
You are already inside this flow.
Everything is a being, every being is living,
Every being is loving, every being is conscious,
Every being knows to live in harmony with one another,
So think wisely to live in harmony with every other being…
