OSHO: Once you know that you are not, you become a master in a very different sense
Buddha said so many times, “When we walk there is no walker, only the walk.” How can this be understood? If I am not, how can I walk?
Walk, and find where you are — you will find only the walk. We cannot understand how some one can say there is speaking and no speaker. But as you go deep in the act of speaking, you will find no speaker but just speaking. In fact, there have been no poets, only poetry has happened. There have been no painters, only painting has been happening, but the vehicle becomes the owner.
Once you know that you are not, you become a master in a very different sense. And if you are not, then you cannot be made a slave, negatively. Now your freedom is total.
