The ordinary language is always dualistic. In ordinary language, when you say rich, it is the opposite of poor. But in the language of the wise man, the spiritual man, in the language of the mystic, duality has very little place. Even though he uses man-made words, even though he uses the same dualistic language, yet due to his touch, the word which was a very ordinary word, starts carrying the fragrance of non-duality. That is Advait.
So when somebody like Osho is saying ‘rich’, he means a richness beyond richness and poverty. His richness is not coming from having something. Usually when you have a lot, you say you are rich. He is talking of a richness where you feel that you are something. Something not in the sense of a possession, something not in sense of material. Something in a very abstract sense. Because if you are something, even in terms of knowledge or reputation, then that is just material. Then that is just possession.
