“Don´t be unnecessarily burdened by the past. Go on closing the chapters that you have read; there is no need to go back again and again. And never judge anything of the past from the new perspective that is arriving, because the new is new, incomparably new and the old was right in its own context, and the new is right in its own context, and they are incomparable. ” ~ Osho

    ************************************
    IMPERFECTION is not something bad. IMPERFECTION IS THE ROOT OF ALL GROWTH, perfection can only be death. Once something is perfect it is dead.
    THE PAINTING THAT I HAVE STARTED WILL REMAIN IMPERFECT. Although I will go on trying to make it perfect, it is the very nature of existence it cannot be perfect.
    AND IT IS NOT MY PAINTING. Those who are with me… it is as much their painting too.
    WHEN I AM GONE, YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE TO PAINT IT. The painting has to go on growing new flowers, new foliage. Don’t let it be dead at any point.
    In other words: DON’T LET IT BECOME PERFECT! Make every effort to make it perfect, but don’t let it become perfect. Then there is tremendous beauty… and always flowing and growing… and there comes no full-point…
    IN LIFE WE ARE ALWAYS IN THE MIDDLE. You don’t know the beginning of life, you don’t know the end of life. We are always in the middle. And everybody has been always in the middle. It is a process, an on-going process, A RIVER THAT GOES ON FLOWING.
    That’s the beauty of it, that’s the glory of it. And not only about the painting — about everything, remember it: ACCEPT THAT IMPERFECTION IS THE RULE, that something becomes perfect only when its death has come.
    TO ASK FOR PERFECTION IS TO ASK FOR DEATH. Death is the full-point. In life you can use commas, semi-colons, but never a full-point…
