Osho Quotes: Two types of action. With and without bondage
TWO TYPES OF ACTION: WITH AND WITHOUT BONDAGE
Un amigo ha preguntado:
Which is your final aim or objective?
He has asked me what my aim is. I don’t have any aim. And it will be good to understand why I have no aim, no objective.
There are two kinds of actions in life. One type of action is motivated by desire, there is a goal behind it. Then there is another type of action which is motivated by love, by compassion—there is no objective behind it. If you ask a mother, “What is the objective behind the love you give your child?” What will she say? She will say, “I don’t know about any objective. I just love and there is love in just loving”. It is not that you love today and receive the joy tomorrow. Your love itself is the joy.
But there is also a type of action which is motivated by desire. Right now I am talking to you. I could be speaking because I will get something out of it. The reward could be in the form of money, fame, respect, prestige—It could be in any form. I may be talking because I will get something in return; then it would be motivated by desire.
But I am speaking only because I cannot stop myself from speaking. Something has happened inside and it wants to be shared. My talking is like a flower that has bloomed and is spreading its fragrance all around. If you ask a flower, “What is the goal?”… there is no goal behind it.
Some acts arise out of desire; then there is a goal behind them. There are some actions which are motivated by compassion; then there is no goal hidden behind them. This is why when an act arises out of a desire it creates a bondage. But acts that arise out of compassion don’t create any bondage. Any act which has a goal creates bondage and one which has no goal does not create bondage.
And you will be surprised to know that you can not do wrong unless you have a goal”
