Find God In.......

How to find God? Osho explains it with reference to a poem of Kabir Das.

A Kabir Dohe states, "As you never may find the forest

if you ignore the tree..."

Osho clarifies, the fact that when one wants to find a forest, one will only come across trees as forest is but trees. He says, 'Forest' is just a word and in reality it does not exist. Countless trees is what constitutes a forest. Similarly God does not have a particular place. God is a term indicating totality. Hence He is in all aspects of creation. He is in everything and anything that is manifested. He is in the snake as a snake, a woman as a woman, a child as a child, a stone as a stone etc.

So if one is on the look out to find the forest denying the tree, his is but a fruitless search. So is it with the seeker who denies humanity in his pursuit to find God.

'The forest' manifests itself in countless forms, but 'the forest' by itself cannot be found without the trees.

So Osho urges one to love humanity. He says 'Don't ask for God and you will find God!"

This is the way Osho points to find God to those who linger with a question “How to find God ?"
