Questions

Only human beings ask, "Why?" so only human beings are in anxiety. When the human mind becomes anxious, it creates questions and then supplies the answers. Because the questions are meaningless, the answers are even more so. But we cannot be at ease unless we find the answers to our fabricated questions, so we go on finding answers and creating new questions.

If you can see the whole nonsense of asking questions and then answering them, you will see that you are just carrying on a monologue with yourself. Even if you are asking and I am answering, it is the human mind asking and the human mind answering. It is just a hide-and-seek game of the same mind.

If you can see this whole profusion of questions and answers, this meaningless, fruitless effort leading nowhere -- if, like a flash of lightning, you become aware of this whole nonsense -- then you can laugh at the absurdity of the human mind. And the moment there is laughter, you transcend the human mind completely. Then there is no question and there is no answer. Then you simply live: there is no purpose and there is no cause. Then living itself is enough.

I go on living just like the waves in the ocean, or the leaves of a tree, or the clouds in the sky -- without any question and without any answer. The moment I became aware of this whole absurdity of questions, something fell down completely, totally. It was a resurrection. I was reborn, reborn in a cosmic dimension, not as an "I," but as cosmic consciousness itself. (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, IATG, 5-6.
