Osho's insight maps itself onto the act of talking, as well. We might distinguish between talking to and talking at. Much like activity, when we talk to someone, we listen carefully, engage fully and speak to the nuance and complexities of the discussion at hand. In contrast, when we talk at someone, we restlessly babble about preconceived (and likely irrelevant) assumptions that rarely further the goal of effective communication.
Being present to the now, both in action and in speech, allows the freshness of divine indwelling to blossom.
