Maturity – Osho

The distinction between the grasses and the blossoms is the same as
between you not knowing that you are a buddha, and the moment you know
that you are a buddha. In fact, there is no way to be otherwise.
Buddha is completely blossomed, fully opened. His lotuses, his petals,
have come to a completion…. Certainly, to be full of spring yourself
is far more beautiful than the autumn dew falling on the lotus leaves.
That is one of the most beautiful things to watch: when autumn dew
falls on the lotus leaves and shine in the morning sun like real
pearls. But of course it is a momentary experience. As the sun rises,
the autumn dew starts evaporating…. This temporary beauty cannot be
compared, certainly, with an eternal spring in your being. You look
back as far as you can and it has always been there. You look forward
as much as you can, and you will be surprised: it is your very being.
Wherever you are it will be there, and the flowers will continue to
shower on you. This is spiritual spring.
