Back cover:
Although titled Random Thoughts, these small notes are not thoughts. They are impromptue self-expressions of truth, arising in a consciousness steeped in utter silence. So that they are not lost to the seekers of truth, Osho wrote them down as they happened, and now those short pieces make up this exquisite collection.
Osho has said that masters do not speak about truth. Even if they want to, they cannot; it is impossible -- truth cannot be told. They cannot speak about truth, but they can call forth the truth that is fast asleep in each of us. They can provoke it, they can challenge it.
Perhaps Osho's words in this small book will create that context for you, and enable you to explore what can be awakened:
"Where are you going?
What you are searching for is not far away, it is nearby.
And if you travel to find what is near,
you will not come close to it, but will go further away.
Stop and see! To search for what is near,
it is enough to just stop and see."
