by ‘BUDDHA’ is not meant any personal name.
‘BUDDHA’ simply means the awakened one.
Anyone who becomes awakened, enlightened, is the BUDDHA.
You are also the BUDDHA;
the only difference is that you are not aware of it.
You have never looked inside yourself and found the BUDDHA there.
Your very life source is nothing but enlightenment.
~ OSHO – Bodhidharma The Greatest Zen Master
In the morning for everybody there is a choice. And not only in the morning, every moment there is a choice to be miserable or to be happy. You always choose to be miserable because there is an investment. You always choose to be miserable because that has become a habit, a pattern, you have always done that. You have become efficient at doing it, it has become a track. The moment your mind has to choose, it immediately flows towards misery. Misery seems to be downhill, ecstasy seems to be uphill. Ecstasy looks very difficult to reach –but it is not so. The real thing is quite the opposite: ecstasy is downhill, misery is uphill. Misery is a very difficult thing to achieve, but you have achieved it, you have done the impossible –because misery is so anti-nature. Nobody wants to be miserable and everybody is miserable.
