I have finally finished this book!
I could only read a little of this book at a time. I would read a few pages and then have to put down the book and think about what I had read. Did I agree with Osho’s views?
Alonenesss were my views on the issue? All in all, it was a good exercise for me to go through. It’s amazing how much you learn about yourself when you question your own views. Oct 26, ChaosInGa rated it really liked it. Few of my fav passages from the book: And they are complementary, not contradictory. It is relationship that creates the need for aloneness, it is a rhythm. People who don’t know how to alone, they are lonely. However when Osho talks about how to apply his message worldwide i.
I understand his view, but not enough to adopt it. Definitely worth the read. May 06, Heidi rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is not easy to read. Because of what society have taught us. I read this book few pages at the time and then I had to put it down because this new information was too overwhelming.
In a good way though. Deeper I went into this book, freeom delighted and happy I felt.
I tried meditation and I experienced my meditation honeymoon as Osho mentioned would happen. And after honeymoon phase, meditation was harder, yes. But I didn’t gave up because I felt that Osho has guided me well and gave me This book is not easy to read. But I didn’t gave up because I felt that Osho has guided me well and gave me good tools and knowledge how to overcome all problems what we actually make ourselves. I absolutely loved this book. It opened my eyes to very simple things.
I have always been struggling being alone, even though now I recognize it as loneliness not aloneness, which actually is a true gift and happiness within yourself. I wish everyone around me would read this book and just be happy. And then share this happiness with others because life is too short. Nov 27, Jeannie Mancini rated it it was amazing. I have very recently been introduced to Osho. Within just a few pages my heart started racing and my own t I have very recently been introduced to Osho.
Halfway through I was totally enamored, enthralled and excited, and soon jumped on the internet to purchase as many of his books I could afford in one fell swoop. Osho is simply amazing in his ability to make all people who have ever felt alienated from the people around them, finally feel at ease with themselves.
Not in a selfish egotistical way, but in a way that can bring joy into our lives the way WE choose to live it. And to live not by the rules of the church, our parents, our kids, or our peers.
Letting God let us live our own lives in our own way is an underlying theme here. Never in all the thousands of books I have read in my life has anyone spoke to me about God in a way I could accept or grasp.
I loved his teachings of God, his philosophy of who or what God is or can be in each of our lives. He speaks of the church, of priests, of Gurus, Buddhas and other various deities from around the world in ways you can let seep in without fear of all of it threatening you to lean one way or the other, or to heaven forbid choose one at all.
His open honest banter and non-preaching way of opening a reader up to God in ways one can understand or want to open up to, was a welcoming breath of fresh air for this reader! And, Osho has a wonderful sense of humor to keep a light air swirling around his wise words of wisdom! He tells us that without it we wither and die, we often let outside social views and religious dogma either stifle us, guilt trip us, or zoom us to the opposite direction bringing stress and chaos over this one simple human joy that should just be lived and cherished for what it is.
Never denied or repressed by anyone in our lives. I truly loved his views and opinions on what works in love relationships and what does not.
All of it was simple common sense, so easy to intake, so loving and joyful. Honesty, being open to feeling fear and getting beyond it, can give us the ability to shed the pre-ordained dos and dont’s we learned as children growing up as to what is proper and not allowed, what was considered dirty and shameful.
All of it fades into dust as you read this fabulous book and let it all fall away into what you yourself want out of life and how to accomplish it.

There are not enough stars in the rating system on this book in my eyes. This one will sit on the nightstand to read over and over and over…. Stay tuned for more Osho book reviews! Freeedom think I found a new hero! Jun 21, Victoria rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this book.
It was hard to understand at first I think you really have to approach it with a completely open mind and just really listen to what he’s saying. I got a little disinterested when he went on a ‘we should all live in small communes’ tangent only because it’s basically impossible to even imagine it in today’s worldbut otherwise his anecdotes were amusing and full of very wise insights kove only further drove his points home.
Everything in the title of this book you will co I loved this book. Everything in the title of this book you will come to learn and understand by the end of it, but not in the traditional sense. In a way, you have to un-learn everything you thought you knew up until now and rebuild from the ground up.
Love, freedom and aloneness all work together as part of a greater whole, and Osho explains these dynamics and relationships in an easy and comprehensive way. His tone is soothing and poetic, patient and soft.
I highlighted many passages in this book, and I have no doubt that I’ll be returning to it for reference again and again. I think it’s one of those books you have to read a few times to really grasp the concepts fully. If you’re really looking to save a relationship from the garbage disposal, I think it requires a thorough reading by both parties, with open discussion throughout.
Even if you’re not in a relationship, it teaches the importance of being alone and how to find comfort in it, instead of sadness and loneliness. I would refer this book to anyone I know who has an open mind to receive it and will undoubtedly be reading more of Osho’s books in the future.
