A taste of silence

A piece emphasizing that silence is golden.

Driven by habit we tend to verbalize everything and ruin the depth of an experience. The modern man lives superficially because he has become too talkative. In these sutras, Osho prescribes a few techniques to get a taste of silence. Talk telegraphically—for one day talk telegraphically. Limit yourself to using only absolutely necessary words akin to a telegram, ten words at the most. A telegram is more effective than long letters because in these ten words entire message is condensed and has a deep impact. Keep mum when you feel good, whenever you feel very good, very quiet. Once you express it, you can disturb it. Even to say that you are feeling good is a disturbance because you have already made it the past. You have already started looking at it as an observer, a spectator. You are starting to analyze it and are no more deeply involved in it. There is no need to label it or say that it is good because no label can be true to it. The feeling of goodness is so infinite that when you call it good, you have already made it mediocre, saying, I love you’, makes love profane. When you feel love for somebody, to say ‘i love you’ is to make it profane. You have already made it rotten. The word corrupts. Just show it by your full being, enjoy it. Let the other feel it, but don’t say anything about it. Once uttered, beautiful and great experiences become trivial. Silence deepens love, if you can deepen your silence, you can deepen your love without difficulty because it is the same process. You can deepen laughter, your vitality.
