THE HIDDEN HARMONY
Talks on the Fragments of Heraclitus
If Heraclitus had been born in India rather than Greece, says Osho, he would have been recognized not simply as a philosopher but as a buddha, a mystic.
At the center we are all existential, living on the surface we are just social functionaries. A poetic mystic like Heraclitus may appear inharmonious on the surface, but he will always be harmonious in the center. As we encounter opposites, conflicts and polarities in life, Osho encourages us not to choose between them but rather live both. If we can do this whilst remaining unattached to either, that very witnessing will be the birth of a hidden harmony within each one of us.
“Heraclitus is a really rare flowering, one of the most highly penetrating souls, one of those souls who become like Everest, the highest peak of the Himalayas. Try to understand him?”
