“You are not accidental. Existence needs you. Without you, something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it. That’s what gives you dignity, that the whole existence will miss you. The stars the sun and moon, The trees the birds, and the earth – everything in the universe will feel a small place is vacant which cannot be filled by anybody except you. This gives you tremendous joy, a fulfillment that you are related to existence, and existence cares for you. Once you are clean and clear, you can see tremendous love falling on you from all dimensions.

This naked figure sits on the lotus leaf of perfection, gazing at the beauty of the night sky. She knows that ” home” is not a physical place in the outside world, but an inner quality of relaxation and acceptance. The stars, the rocks, the trees, the flowers, fish, and birds – all are our brothers and sisters in this dance of life. We human beings tend to forget this, as we pursue our own private agendas and believe we must fight to get what we need. But ultimately, our sense of separateness is just an illusion, manufactured by the narrow preoccupation of the mind. Now is the time to look at whether you are allowing yourself to receive the extraordinary gift of feeling “at home” Wherever you are. If you are, Be sure to take time to savor it so it can deepen and remain within you. If on the other hand, you’ve been feeling like the world is out to get you, it’s time to take a break. Go outside tonight and look at the stars.”    Zen Master Osho
