Osho, Mister God this is Anna, thought, knowing, being, and mystery

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




“Whatsoever you can think about God is not going to be God;

it is simply going to be thought.”




            Following from this thought, Osho then suggested: “The ultimate is a mystery, then life becomes a life of wonder. ...And wherever you find mystery there is God. The more you know, the less you will be aware of God; the less you know, the closer God will be to you. If you don't know anything, if you say with absolute confidence ‘I don’t know’ if this ‘I don’t know’ comes from the deepest core of your being, then God will be in your very core, in the very beat of your heart. And then poetry arises...then one falls in love with this tremendous mystery that surrounds you.”

            Everyone must come to their own incomprehension of God their own way: whether it be from looking up at the night sky and witnessing the vast expanse of the unimaginably immense universe, or perhaps from viewing the marvels of the natural world, or mankind’s mysterious ways, or by recognizing the inconceivable inward universe we all carry around with us. No matter how wonder comes, it matters only that we accept and revere it.

The authors of The Kybalion state: “The Hermetists believe and teach that THE ALL, ‘in itself’, is and must ever be UNKNOWABLE. They regard all the theories, guesses and speculations of the theologians and metaphysicians regarding the inner nature of THE ALL, as but the childish efforts of mortal minds to grasp the secret of the Infinite. Such efforts have always failed and will always fail, from the very nature of the task. One pursuing such inquiries travels around and around in the labyrinth of thought, until he is lost. He is like a squirrel which frantically runs around and around the circling treadmill wheel of his cage, travelling ever and yet reaching nowhere- at the end a prisoner still, and standing just where he started.”

Now, if we are reluctant to believe the adults who have been continuously quoted here, perhaps we should listen to what comes out of ‘the mouths of babes’, so to speak, and hear from a little girl named Anna. She says: “When you make Mister God really, really, really big, then you really, really, really, don’t understand Mister God- then you do. ...Mister God keeps on shedding bits all the way through your life until the time comes when you admit freely and honestly that you don't understand Mister God at all. At this point you have let Mister God be his proper size- and wham!- there he is, laughing at you.”

I suggest to anyone doubting the genius, and inherent spiritual vision of children, that they pick up the marvelous little book from which this last quote arises- Mister God, This is Anna- which is the true story of a four year old girl who was found abandoned on the docks in London, and who continually spouted the most profound and simple truths, exposing the imperfections of dogma and the availability of God to anyone open enough to allow the magnitude of the mystery of God in.
