Description

:In today’s world, freedom is our basic condition, and until we learn to live with that freedom, and learn to live by ourselves and with ourselves, we are denying ourselves the possibility of finding love and happiness with someone else.

Love can only happen through freedom and in conjunction with a deep respect for ourselves and the other. Is it possible to be alone and not lonely? Where are the boundaries that define ‘lust’ versus ‘love’…and can lust ever grow into love? In Love, Freedom, and Aloneness you will find unique, radical, and intelligent perspectives on these and other essential questions. In our post-ideological world, where old moralities are out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives. We have the chance to start afresh with ourselves, our relationships to others, and to find fulfillment and success for the individual and for society as a whole.

Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people―along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha―who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.”

  1. Janet Dore

    It’s quite repetitive. It’s at times a bit eccentric. It’s not really well written. But, this was explained in the “About the Author” section at the end. This book was NOT “written”, but transcribed from 35 years’ worth of Osho’s extemporaneous talks. Oh, and it’s definitely not for the conservative Christian who will get offended by the “other side.”

    All of this being said, it’s one of the most insightful and valuable books I’ve read. I felt like my personal beliefs and natural tendencies were being validated as I turned every page. I’ve always resisted organized religion…even the Eastern ones…even as a young child. Osho supports this. Since I started being more introspective and conscious, my primary focus has been love. Osho supports this. (Although he did bring to light that I have erred by not first loving myself.)

    By the time I closed the back cover, I had learned the necessity of meditation and aloneness in one’s life, because they enable you to love yourself…and, only when you love yourself can you love another. I also learned that aloneness and love are not only complimentary, but they each cannot exist without the other.
