Sensitivity: A Beginning of let go

Osho says: Dharma is a very special Sanskrit word. It means exactly what in chinese they mean by tao, or what in greek they mean by logos – the ultimate law. Not any law in particular… The law of gravitation is a particular law. And then there are many laws – chemical, biological, physical, but they are all particular laws.

Dharma is the ultimate law, the law of all laws. So you cannot pinpoint where it is, although it is everywhere. All special laws are just particular manifestations of this universal law. Mm? Gravitation is just a limited expression of it.

So one that holds all laws in itself is called dharma.

Through intellect you can discover particular laws. Only through sensitivity you can discover the universal law. The universal is not available to the intellect. That’s the difference between science and religion.

So start feeling for the universal. Just sitting silently, listen to universal. The silence of the night… these insects making a noise. Just listen… Listening to this particular noise, if you bring in the intellect, science comes in. Then you start thinking about what type of insect this is and how it makes such a type of noise… what type of throat it must have, and for what reasons – you have moved into the particular.

Listening to this noise, not brooding about it, not thinking about it – just listening, becoming more and more sensitive; not thinking, just listening – suddenly you will see that something of tremendous import is arising out of this simple noise. A universal music can be heard through this noise because all noises contain it… but it is a very still, small voice. When you become very very silent it asserts itself in your consciousness.

So remember more and more to be non-intellectual and sensitive, and then you will know that there is a universal law. And to know the universal law is to know all – nothing else needed.
Then by knowing it, one becomes it. By knowing it, one by and by dissolves into it. By knowing it, one is overpowered by it.

And when your life is run by the universal law and you are no more a doer, then you have a true life – the life of benediction, bliss. It is not something that you can practice. You can only listen to the universal law and allow yourself to fall into its trap. It is more a sort of let-go.
