This is a very good passage by Osho. Osho has given a very good analogy between the clock and the mind. When pendulum is at the centre, the clock is at rest for a fraction of second. When the mind is at rest, there is no thought in it, neither positive nor negative. This is similar to the pendulum which is momentarily at rest. Osho expects our mind to be at rest,similar to the pendulum at rest. Here,mind and pendulum are not 'dead',but are very active. The mind here, is active but no thought is present.Such state of mind is said to be in meditative state.
