Osho, born Chandra Mohan Jain, also known as Acharya Rajneesh and Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Be innocent, not knowledgeable. Be ignorant. It is better, because in your ignorance you accept the mystery of life. Life cannot be explained. All explanations are very tiny, small, rigid; and life is so vast, so immense — it cannot be contained in any explanation.
Life is there to be lived. Life has no question-mark; it is a mystery, there is no explanation. And it is good that there is none: it would be a great misfortune if there were an explanation. If there were an answer that could satisfy you, just think how flat things would become, how boring, how monotonous — because no answer can answer your questions. Life remains an adventure, it remains a constant search. Searching, one day you come to a point where you understand that you are wasting your energies in searching. The same energies can be put to celebration. You can enjoy.

I show you the one way to produce inflation that doesn?t require the Shanghai Accord or destructive currency wars. And the elites are finally starting to talk about it publicly. What?s their next plan? Read on? So there are three ways out of debt. One is default, which is not a good option. One is growth, but it?s not happening. The third way is inflation. The government has to have inflation. If it doesn?t, there?s going to be a crack-up in the national debt. But we?re not getting inflation from monetary policy. There?s another option, however. The idea?s been around for a long time, but now it?s being spoken about publicly by elites. That?s to have central banks, whether the Fed or the emerging markets, bid up the price of gold. A higher gold price will also drive prices in the overall economy higher.

There are 60 sub-atomic particles they?ve discovered that can explain the thousands of other sub-atomic particles, and the model is too ugly. This is my analogy: it?s like taking Scotch tape and taping a giraffe to a mule to a whale to a tiger and saying this is the ultimate theory of particles. ? We have so many particles that Oppenheimer once said you could give a Nobel Prize to the physicist that did not discover a particle that year. We were drowning in sub-atomic particles.
