Short mystical poems by Osho: “Drop by drop”

When the heart thirsts so much for truth, for peace, for religion, One day you come face to face with the sun Which dispels all life’s darkness. Thirst! Pray! Strive! Wait! A journey of a thousand miles is covered By small step, so don’t lose heart. Vast distances can be covered one step at a…

MYSTICAL POEMS: “Inside each of us there is a poet” by Osho
