The Osho video I posted really resonates with me. I love it & identify with it for many reasons. And of course for the reason at the end of the video when Osho tells his joke. Because I’ve been hanging for years & I am still hanging on, even though there is no need. I’m not mad about this, but I can smile & see the humor in it.
“Enlightenment is very ordinary; it is nothing special. Rather than making you more special, it is going to make you less special. It plants you right in the center of a wonderful humility and innocence. Everyone else may or may not call you enlightened, but when you are enlightened the whole notion of enlightenment and someone who is enlightened is a big joke.” – Adayashanti
You can view “enlightenment as a joke” in two ways in this blog post. I believe both ways to be true. In either case; enlightenment is funny! So in that sense both are correct.
