Product Description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I bought this 28 February 2006

Osho talks in plain clear words. There is no confusion here. No pretention, no complications. There are no theories, no convoluted rationalizations. Its just common sense talk. Sometimes we forget how to think in simple terms about our own free will. I highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars the value of this text... 8 December 2004
By Alicja Z. - Published on
I think that the value in this book lies in the deviation of thought from anything mainstream. Even though you might not agree with everything or anything in this book, Osho guides you through a world of thought that many of us had not even heard of. It frees you from a way of thinking that we are used to every single day. A good book to pick up and gain perspective when the problems pile up one after another. You will gain a new way of looking at freedom and a new way to define freedom. And althought I doubt that I, or most other people that will pick up this book, will alter their lives significantly, there are many words of wisdon to pick up. Afterall, all that we need sometimes is a breath of fresh air.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 26 April 2010
By Dr. Gunta M. Caldwell - Published on
Osho. You either love him or dislike him but he will always get a reaction. What I like about all his writings is that he is able to challenge us on our way of thinking. In this day and age we seemed to have become so locked in a way of thought that has no freedom and has no awareness. Yes he has some radical ideas but he also challenges to explore how we have been taught and how valuable that really is. Freedom is not about doing anything you choose to do, but rather doing whatever it is with a mindfulness that is brought about by deep reflection. He is teaching us to ask ourselves why do we do certain things. Do we know why? When we do know this can brings about a profound freedom.
Dr Gunta Krumins-Caldwell author of On Silver Wings
