Ludwig Wittgenstein, Osho, sannyas, spontaneity, nature, the imprisoned mind, and wonder

excerpted from THE WAY OF WONDER: a return to the mystery of ourselves, by Jack Haas




“That the world is, is the mystical.”

Ludwig Wittgenstein



           Recognizing this means, again, that no efforts or achievements will change anything, in fact they may take us farther away from our true selves, and farther from reality, because these actions, bound into erroneous paradigms, run wholly against the grain of our wonder-full beings.

Osho implores us onward: “My sannyas [i.e. practice] is spontaneity, living moment to moment without any prefabricated discipline, living with the unknown, not exactly knowing where you are going. Because if you already know where you are going you are dead. Then life runs in a mechanical way. A life should be a flow from the known towards the unknown. One should be dying each moment to the known so the unknown can penetrate you. And only the unknown liberates. a life of spontaneity, of nature. Don't try to corrupt your future. Let it be...don't try to manage it. Don't give it a mold and a form and a pattern. ...Remain unprepared, then you will be excited, then each moment will be a joy and a wonder, and each moment will bring something new to you which has never happened, and you will never be bored. ...Move in freedom, move in total freedom, and each moment remember to drop the past. ...Just go on ceasing as far as the past is concerned, dying as far as the past is concerned, so you are totally alive, throbbing, pulsating, streaming...”

           This ‘amethodological methodology’ of aconceptual existence is simply the unshackling of the imprisoned mind- of loosing the conceptual grip we have unwittingly placed upon ourselves. That is when realization leads to unrealization, decay turns into growth, and without struggle or skill we become our true marvelous selves, agog in the spellbinding universe, simply because reality itself is fantastically outrageous already.
