There is only one question

Beloved Osho,
Whatever the question, your answer seems to be the same. How long will this go on before we understand?

As long as you wish. As far as I am concerned, this very moment it can happen. It is not a question of time, it is a question of intense understanding.
It is true: whatever the question, my answer is the same, because there are not many questions, they are just phrased in different ways.
But the question also is one: you don't know who you are. You are absolutely in darkness - unaware of your glory, your divinity, your beauty, your truth. All the questions differ only in phrasing. Naturally, I have to phrase my answers also according to your question.
Somebody has counted through my books and found that I have answered ten thousand questions. My answer is one. I have not answered ten thousand questions, and I have not given you ten thousand answers. Your question is one, but you have asked it in ten thousand ways. My answer is one; just not to spoil the game I have answered you in ten thousand ways, hoping that perhaps, sometime, in a certain moment of silence, in a certain way, you may catch hold of the one answer.
How long you are going to miss, that depends on you. I cannot force it on you, you have to receive it. I cannot give it to you, you have to take it.
