New Vision

When you open up to the ultimate, immediately it pours into you.  You are no longer an ordinary human being--you have transcended.  Your insight has become the insight of the whole existence.  Now you are no longer separate--you have found your roots.  Otherwise, ordinarily, everybody is moving without roots, not knowing from where their heart goes on receiving energy, not knowing who goes on breathing in them, not knowing the life juice that is running inside them.

It is not the body, it is not the mind--it is something transcendental to all duality, that is called bhagavat--the bhagavat in the ten directions....

Your inner being, when it opens, first experiences two directions: the height, the depth.  And then slowly, slowly, as this becomes your established situation, you start looking around, spreading into all other eight directions.

And once you have attained to the point where your height and your depth meet, then you can look around to the very circumference of the universe.  Then your consciousness starts unfolding in all ten directions, but the road has been one.

--Zen Tarot, Osho
