While describing about Kabir, Osho says that to be ordinary in the world is the most extraordinary thing. The natural Desire of the human mind is to become special, to become special in the ways of the world, to have many degrees, to have much political power, to have money, to have wealth, to be special. You become a great Mahatma, a great Sage, a great scholar, a man of knowledge, a man of renunciation; again you are special.
Unless the desire to be special disappears, you will never be special. Unless you relax into your ordinariness, you will never relax.
The real spiritual person is the one who is absolutely ordinary. Kabir is very normal. You would not have been able to find the him in the crowd. His speciality is not outword. You cannot just find him by looking at his face. It is difficult. Buddha was special, a very beautiful man, A charismatic personality.
Well, that was about Kabir as said by Osho. Isn't it true that we always desire to be special? Is it possible for us to be ordinary?
I wonder why we use the term “he is just a ordinary person.” Being ordinary is simply extraordinary!
I was reading Ecstacy: the language of existence by Osho.
