      Osho

      The paradox is that those who are ready to be defeated by love become
      victorious. But remember one thing: this should not be your
      unconscious motivation, otherwise you will miss again.

      Sanai says: [Love's Conqueror Is He Whom Love Conquers. ] If you
      want to conquer, be conquered. And you do want to conquer; deep down
      the desire is always there to conquer. So you say, "Okay. If this is
      the way to conquer, that I have to be conquered, then I will be
      conquered -- because I want to be a conqueror." You will miss.
      The subtle motivation will destroy the whole beauty, the whole
      approach: you are still trying to conquer. No, the motivation has to
      disappear completely.

      Victory is a consequence, not an effort. It is not an effect that you
      can cause, it is a consequence. When there is no motivation of
      conquering, victory comes. When you are not on a conquest trip, on
      an ego trip, victory comes. It is a consequence, a natural
      consequence, of the heart which is humble, meek, surrendered.
      What does it mean to be meek, humble, surrendered? It means
      remaining in a let-go; it means going with the whole, not struggling
      against it. If you are sad, don't struggle against it. Then be sad,
      rejoice in your sadness, because this is the gift of God at this
      particular time. It must be a need, because
      nothing happens without your need. You must need this climate this
      moment: this is how God wants you to be.

      So if you are sad, be totally sad -- with not even a slight lurking
      motivation to fight with it, to drop it, to go beyond it, to be not
      sad. No, just relax with it, and you will see a miracle happening
      inside you: when you relax with sadness, sadness becomes luminous.
      Yes, even sadness becomes luminous, because acceptance is such a
      magical phenomenon.

      Experiment and see.

      Buddha says: IHI PASSIKO -- come and see, experiment and see.
      When you are feeling anything, just be with it, utterly with it,
      with no judgment of good and bad. It is so, so be with it. Buddha
      calls it tathata, suchness. Such is the case in is moment. This is
      what God is pouring into you.
      He knows better, so it must be your need, whether you can understand
      it or not.

      Your understanding is not the question, your acceptance is the
      question. In utter relaxed acceptance, you have the key of
      transforming everything.
      To be in trust means that whatsoever happens is good because it
      happens through God. Whatsoever happens is good because it comes
      from the whole. It is a gift:
      it has to be taken with great gratitude. And then who can prevent you
      from being victorious? Then no power can prevent you from being
      victorious:
      all victory is yours.

      -----------

      It is only resistance that transforms the eternity of the present
      moment into the transience of passing experience as time or
      duration. Without resistance there is only eternity.
