A MANTRA OF YES
Start putting your energy into yes, make a mantra of yes. Sitting on
your bed, begin repeating “Yes… yes…” Get in tune with it. First
you will be just repeating it and then get into the feel of it. Begin to
sway with it, allow it to come all over your being from head to toe. Let
it penetrate deeply.
If you can’t say it loud, at least silently say
Sun Behind the Sun Behind the Sun,
"Life cannot be lived through no, and those who try to live life
through no simply go on missing life.
One cannot make an abode out of no, because no is just empty.
No is like darkness. Darkness
has no real existence; it is simply the absence of light.
That's why, you cannot do anything with darkness directly.
You cannot push it out of the room, you cannot throw it into the
neighbor's house; you cannot bring more darkness into your house.
Nothing can be done directly with darkness, because it is not.
If you want to do something with darkness, turn the light off, if
you don't want darkness, put the light on. But all that you have to do has to be
done with light.
exactly the same way, yes is light, no is darkness.
If you really want to do anything in your life, you have to learn
the ways of yes. And yes is
tremendously beautiful, just to say it is so relaxing.
Let it become your very lifestyle.
Say yes to the trees and the birds and people, and you will be
surprised: life becomes a blessing if you are there to say yes to it.
Life becomes a great adventure."
(OSHO, Zorba the Buddha, # 5)
