  • "The real gratitude is expressed only through creativity. When you start creating something to enhance, to enrich existence — it may be just a small garden or anything, a painting, a song, a dance… when you start being creative you are showing gratitude. In your own small way you are participating with god.

    The only thing that a sannyasin has to do is not to leave the world in the same ugly shape as he found it — to make just a little change. One cannot hope to change the whole world — it is too big and our hands are too small — but still we can do something. There can be a few more flowers in the world, a few bigger roses in the world, a few more smiling faces in the world, a few more dancers, a few more singers, a few more paintings, And if we have done something out of gratitude it brings tremendous joy. Creativity is the only way of real prayer." - Osho: Going All The Way
