To or to not ask questions?

9 posts in this topic

Which a part of this talk:

This is an interesting perspective. A meditator loses all questions, and that is when they attain to wisdom.
 

“In existence there are not real questions. All questions are false, unreal, non-essential, because life is not a problem to be solved; it is a mystery to be lived. Only the fools go on questioning and go on thinking that some answers is going to help them. No answer is going to help you; every answer is going to create more questions”.

Pretty much.

Osho told of a story of a philosopher who came to the Buddha with a multitude of many many questions. The Buddha, instead of answering his questions like every of Guru and teacher did, offered the Philosopher to sit by him. Promising that if he sat by the Buddha, and became his disciple, that he would destroy all of his questions.

Another super fascinating thing about that talk, was that he called Philosophy the ‘domain of the fools’. That fools are great philosophers. He echoes this same thought in his ‘book of secrets’. In that book, in the first few pages, he openly says that ‘all philosophies are false’. Philosophy is intellect, and intellect is not intelligence. In order to receive truth, the intellectual mind must be dropped and the receptive open mind must be adopted. This is where tantra (tantra means technique) comes in.

This is a sharp contrast to the Actualized.org attitude towards philosophy. Although Leo has sometimes mirrored Osho by saying such things as; ‘if you have to ask, you don’t get it‘’

Not all questions are futile. Asking questions can be a great way to arrive at the truth, provided that you are persistent enought to reach the point where the question you're asking eventually self-destructs and leaves you with nothing. That should be the end goal of all philosophy.

Answers don't solve anything because there actually isn't a real problem.

There are three levels:

At the level of the body you have to follow the rules of the universe.

At the level of the mind/intellect you have to work on a little bit of understanding to calm the mind. This is where you have to ask questions.

At the level of consciousness there are no questions.

You are the asker and the answerer. Some questions are never translated into words but are answered nonetheless.

A true philosopher asks "why?" until he finds the first cause of everything. 

Osho is at a point where even all that is just mental masturbation :DDD

It just doesn't matter whether questioning happens or not because there isn't a real goal or purpose to anything.

Should or should not only occurs within the dream story of apparent existence having meaning, purpose and value.
