Comforting - and snappish.

with no guide, no guiding scriptures.

has found the sunrise.
Others only believe.
Those who believe are not religious,
they are simply avoiding the great adventure
of religion by believing.

Only no-mind is original and radical.
Only no-mind is revolutionary - revolution in action.

the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,
and a flame without any smoke.
That is what awareness is.
- Osho
