Book Description
Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho - it is rather the total presence of fear with the courage to face it. Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is a cause for celebration, and instead of hanging on to the familiar, we should accept these opportunities for adventure.

    Con il suo stile provocatorio, il controverso Osho resta una lettura sempre stimolante, soprattutto quano dice cose che non ci fanno tanto comodo.

    A Buddha is a Buddha, a Krishna is a Krishna, and you are you. And you are not in any way less than anybody else. Respect yourself, respect your own inner voice and follow it.

    That is one of the problems: people have been taught never to do anything wrong, and they become stuck. They cannot move, something wrong may happen. So they become like rocks, they lose all movement.

    Commit as many mistakes as possible, remembering only one thing: don't commit the same mistake again. And you will be growing.

    Prejudiced eye is blind, the heart full of conclusions is dead. Too many a priori assumptions and your intelligence start losing its sharpness, its beauty, its intensity. It becomes dull.
