In Freedom, Osho outlines three stages of freedom. The first is "freedom from," which is a freedom that comes from breaking out of what he calls the "psychological slavery" imposed by outside forces such as parents, society, or religion. The next stage is "freedom for," a positive freedom that comes from embracing and creating something---a fulfilling relationship, for example, or an artistic or humanitarian vision. And lastly there is "just freedom," the highest and ultimate freedom. This last freedom is more than being for or against something; it is the freedom of simply being oneself and responding truthfully to each moment.
The Insights for a New Way of Living series aims to shine light on beliefs and attitudes that prevent individuals from being their true selves. The text is an artful mix of compassion and humor, and readers are encouraged to confront what they would most like to avoid, which in turn provides the key to true insight and power.
Freedom helps readers to identify the obstacles to their freedom, both circumstantial and self-imposed, to choose their battles wisely, and to find the courage to be true to themselves.
Loss of words…
I'm almost at a loss of words. It must be my mind enslaving my freedom. That statement is a direct translation of what this book is trying to teach you from the beginning. This book is filled with absurdities that barely have a basis on any sort of education or research. It clumps everything and everyone together in one group or another while expressing how we should be individuals and free. Thus making it explicably hypocritical. This book will create more obstacles than knock down. This is not how the world works nor or minds. Please do yourself a favor and free your bookshelf, your time and your mind from this book. Do not read! There is so much better out there.
