Try to find that which is absolutely destined – Osho

Try to find that which is destined, and don’t be too concerned with that which is irrelevant or accidental. Your being a man, your being a woman, is an accident. Your being German or an Indian is an accident. Your being black or which is an accident

Try to find that which is absolutely destined. That is your nature, that is your essence.

But you are lost in accidents. You pay too much attention to accidents; you are too worried about them. Your whole time and energy is wasted in them. You become so much occupied with the nonessential that the essential is forgotten.
Look at that which is your innermost core, which is you. That innermost core is absolutely destined. Outside, nothing is destined. Inside, everything is destined.
– Osho
