Happiness comes out of being needed – Osho

People who live with nature are more trustworthy.
Science has succeeded so much, and it has done miracles – useless miracles of course, because they have not added a single bit to human happiness, and a miracle is useless I happiness has not increased through it. Rather, happiness has decreased.
More technology, the more comfort, but the less happiness: this is the miracle that science has done.
The more things can be done by mechanical devices, the less you are needed. And the less you are needed, the more you feel futile, useless and meaningless.
Happiness comes out of being needed.
