“The witnessing soul is like the sky.
The birds fly in the sky but they don’t leave any footmarks. That’s what Buddha says, that the man who is awakened lives in such a way that he leaves no footmarks. He is without wounds and without scars; he never looks back – there is no point. He has lived that moment so totally that what is the need of looking back again and again? He never looks ahead, he never looks back, he lives in the moment.” Osho
It seems this quote wants to be blogged about. So here you have it. The quote draws me back to a time when I was a bit frazzled and had started a morning ritual of journalling and reading daily Osho’s “No-Thought for the Day” quotes via http://www.osho.com. This quote must have made an impression on me at the time, because I have copies of it everywhere, everywhere…
I know reading the Osho quotes every morning did help me with trying to live in the moment and not “looking back again and again” – I just maybe looked back once a day.
Today I start again.
