Product Description

Product 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, 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 In our post-ideological world, where old moralities are out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives.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.

Synopsis

The model of the traditional family is breaking down, children barely into their teens are experimenting with sex, and half of all marriages in developed countries end in divorce. In LOVE, FREEDOM AND ALONENESS, Osho explains why these phenomena are happening and how they can actually be viewed as a cause for celebration rather than worry. In a post-ideological world, where all the old moralities are clearly out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives. Literally starting fresh with ourselves and our relationships to others, and defining fulfillment and success for the individual and for society means understanding the new realities of our basic condition. Until we learn to live by ourselves and with ourselves, we will deny ourselves the possibility of finding love and happiness with someone else. This book is a provocation and a guide for that fresh start.

If you are new to Osho then you are in for the most beautiful period of your reading and seeking. Although this seems a bold statement, I feel it is understated. In this one book one will learn a lifestyle that is natural and flowing. There are no rules, no golden gems of a 10 point plan. What you get is how to balance a lifestyle of meditation and love. The polarities. Aloneness and relationships. To seemlessly dance between the two. The style is very flowing like a conversation. This is no accident. The book is put together from talks that Osho has given. Some 5000 hours of recordings have been taken. If you loved Eckhart Tolle's the power of now and wish for more reading of that quality, you will find Osho books equally as good. I've read the full 6 books of the insight series. All are brilliant. I recommend Sex matters highly as well. Osho Zen and Osho Tao are also brilliant. However, if I was asked to recommend one essential book for someone new to Osho it would be Love, Freedom and Aloneness. It's hard to really review Osho because you are not quite sure what's really going on. Just by reading you feel something is happening. That something is a resounding "A-ha" to it. I've read carlos Castaneda all of them, I've read most of Stuart Wilde's books which I thought could not be surpassed yet Osho has done this with ease. With Osho there is no fighting within. You start with were you are and remove things very gently. He loves to bring a gentleness to the way you treat life and especially yourself. I've never thought of brushing teeth violently. However, when you compare that to brushing teeth gently, you begin to understand how you treat yourself. A small violence, but still it is there. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Osho's Love, Freedom, Aloneness 7 Mar 2010
By R. Bonn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another excellent work from Osho's lips. OK, there are the usual tirades against religion and society, plus a little exaggeration, humour and teasing but the guidance and advice are well founded. His views on Love and Freedom are bound to trigger interesting debates. The section on Aloneness is very clearly delivered, a very helpful guide to enlightenment through the inward journey. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars OSHO Love, Freedom and Relationships 17 Feb 2013
By Lou
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fantastic book by the brilliant mystic OSHO. Would marry the man if he was still alive today!!! Book shows how to treat oneself kindly. All too often we are violent to ourselves without realising it...we bully ourselves for not being perfect. This book shows us that we do not need to be perfect...we just need to be ourselves...if we accept and love ourselves, no matter what anyone else thinks, that is all that matters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful read, from a wonderful insight! 20 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
Another great insight from Rajneesh which I certianly believe can help others achieve great happiness, contentment and peace when either embrassed in ones aloneness or with a loved one.

I have honestly picked up a new insight into relationships and aloneness and this is why I give this book a 5 star rating!

4.0 out of 5 stars worth a read 2 Jun 2010
By WM
Format:Paperback
This book is good for understanding relationships. Conceptually, Osho is very good, and you will likely learn some things. I would have given it 5 stars, but in some areas, he does exaggerate, and is a little idealistic, but overall, it's a good read.

Why do you cling to something? Because you are afraid you will lose it. Perhaps somebody may steal it. Your fear is that what is available to you today may not be available to you tomorrow. &quote;

You cannot frustrate real love, because there is no expectation in the first place. And you cannot fulfill unreal love because it is so rooted in expectation that whatsoever is done always falls short. Its expectation is too great, nobody can fulfill it. So the unreal love always brings frustration, and the real love always brings fulfillment. &quote;
