The kun byed rgyal po’i mdo, Osho, organic mysticism, nature, morality, and mystery

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

 

                                        

         

To exist is a state as little conceivable as its contrary.

No, still more inconceivable.”

E.M. Cioran

 

 

           Thus there is no process involved in true seeing, there is no ‘understanding’ which becomes obvious, there is only a meaninglessness of incredible meaning that lies waiting to be uncovered in all and everything. Mystery becomes the way to itself, because there is naught but mystery.

It is simply a matter of focus, of contracting and expanding, of plying the extent of our sight, of accepting that we cannot focus upon two distances at once, of intentionally blurring what is now clear, so that what is blurred may emerge clearly in plain view.

            This is a facile reversal of cognition, a subtle return to the purity which has not been lost but only buried beneath the mire, for the truth is that we contain everything necessary to experience wonder, because ...nothing is necessary.

            Osho remarks: “Nature is enough... No imposed laws and disciplines are needed. Innocence is enough. No morality is needed. Nature is spontaneous, nature is enough. No imposed laws and disciplines are needed. Innocence is enough. Knowledge is not needed. ...the real guru is life itself. …[Therefore] just be, moment to moment, not knowing who you are...and what you are.”

Life is enough unto itself; to ‘be’ is, in its absolute essence, an ineffable, inexpressible, inexhaustible event of beauty and strangeness; the staggering aspect of ‘being’ is that it is, and that it is thoroughly incomprehensible.  

Excerpts from the kun byed rgyal po’i mdo, continue to address this view: “It is a path, subtle and difficult to understand, which is non-speculative and beyond thinking. It is non-existent, imperceptible, and non-conceptual, it is free of all thinking. It cannot be captured in words, free from form and color, it is not an object of the sense faculties. It is firm, difficult to comprehend, and totally inexplicable. ...Through an attitude free of desires...nature is self-perfected. ...and there is no need for [certain] activities, as likewise, the essentials are unagitated, and therefore don't need to be achieved. ...It is a natural knowledge, broad and without boundaries or a center. ...There is no becoming as everything is just as it is. ...A practitioner...who abides in a state of non-conceptual thinking and who [thinks] ‘whatever is, is right’, this person manifests the [highest]... intention. ...There is nothing else than abiding...in balance, without conceptual thinking. ...There is no need to carry out meditation as Reality is oneself. Do not seek a place of meditation, do not depend on others. ...and do not try to understand intellectually the imperceptible nature. Do not search for Reality in anything else than yourself.”

Organic mysticism (I call it organic mysticism, but the only real name for it is ...life. I am not espousing a new religion, merely the abandonment of all that is old) is a natural process, it is not a function of cultivation, examination, manipulation, or adaptation. It is the realization that asceticisms, prostrations, petitions, sacrifices, and self-denials are wholly unnatural.
