En esta obra Osho nos habla de la inteligencia, de lo que para él significa ser inteligente, vivir de forma inteligente:
Intelectualidad no es inteligencia. Ser intelectual es ser falso; es simular inteligencia. No es real porque no es algo de cada uno de nosotros, es algo prestado.
La inteligencia es el crecimiento de la consciencia interna. No tiene nada que ver con los co

This is definitely a book that will put your mind to work! Not an easy book to read. You need to take your time and think. I think I'm gonna have to go again and again back to it. Highly recommended especially for philosophy and spirituality lovers! Bottom line, I'm in love with Osho's books. I bought two of his books from Muscat book fair & I can't wait to read them =)!

Osho comes from a different planet. a beautiful idealistic planet... but different. loved the ideas, loved his take on organised religion. began to wrinkle my nose at the "computer notion". i've seen terminator... I know what happens when computers take over :P

Lo leí en castellano, es un "annrader" como lo diríamos en holandés! Un libro que habla de la diferencia entre inteligencia y memoria y entre la intelectualidad e inteligencia......

Owing to the large amount of good reviews and the high rates that Osho's books have I decided to give it a go and this was the first book I read by him. Reading the synopsis didn't make me want to read the book at all because it didn't sound interesting to me but then I read the prologue and that was when I first felt that I really should read the whole book. So… if you don't know the book don't read the synopsis, read the prologue, it isn't long so you won't waste much time and you'll gain th ...more

This book can offer such a good insight on meditation, intelligence and living.

If you are already familiar with The Power of Now and A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle you will find many topics that are discussed similarly to the mentioned books. Even though many things are previously known on the spritual path it is always good to gain a new perspective.

Osho teachings are valuable especially when it comes to shining light on believe systems and how they can effect our lifes.

Book 1 of 2015:
"To become intelligent you have to come out of your mind and become a spectator of activities happening inside it"
A very different point of view. Great to broaden your horizons and change your conventional thinking.

If you read this book throughout, you will find out the difference between intelligence and memory. However some people understand that these are same which is completely opposite the fact.

Osho provided a different take on the meaning of intelligence from an intuitive perspective. It challenges the common notion of the role that an institutionalized education system has done in society. There is no reservation in his frank criticism that builds on what he think is the root causes of the ill condition. In the second half of the book, he offers alternatives to transform the society conditioned mind to its natural state that could be the only key to survival as a human race.

Gives a new perspective on important parts of life, asks critical questions and keeps you thinking.
May 08, 2008 Hani rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
As the book's title suggests, Osho discusses what he believes to be is true intelligence confronting the many beliefs that society instills in individuals from an early age. Osho stresses the value of meditation in everyday life and provides some insight on how to listen to your inner self.

Osho's tone through out the book is quite confrontational and quite repetitive at some points.

Overall, a good read ... I will probably check out other works by the author and would recommend this book to peo

You will really get to know what is intelligence. And who is intelligent in this Modern world. Tip : please don't be intellectual while reading this book. It will be of no use.
Aug 24, 2015 Jubchili rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Absolutely brilliant. Some lines moved me more than others - and there was some repetition in some parts, but Osho never fails to impress with the way he articulates himself in all the written adaptations of his talks. He makes complex and unfathomable concepts understandable by putting them in modern day context, and what's even better, he actually gives you a way to get out of the madness that is society's conditioning. A must read for any literate person, honestly.

Best way to promote intelligence is to train the intellect, Intellect is logical, he says; intelligence is paradoxical.
It is only through intelligence that we can respond creatively to the challenges of a changing world.
It aims to shine light on beliefs and attitudes that prevent individuals from being their true selves.

It challenges the traditional conception of intelligence, distinguishing knowledge and intelligence.
It teaches not to accept things without getting to the root of understanding.
Question everything and you will know the truth and that's where the intelligence comes.

I love what this guy has to say in this book.
I had to ignore the WAY it was said: He makes sweeping generalizations. Not sure if it is because of the translation to English or not. But the CONTENT of what he is saying is good stuff!

Another great Osho book. Osho explains intelligence, and how to 'rediscover' it. Also explains the differences between intellectuality, memory, and intelligence. A great book, I took my time reading it and suggest you the same :)

“Not to carry the past is intelligence, to die to the past every moment is intelligence, to remain fresh and innocent is intelligence. Donald was driving his sports car down the main avenue when suddenly he noticed to his rear a flashing red light. It was a police car. Quickly Donald pulled over to the side. “Officer,” he blurted, “I was only doing twenty-five in a thirty-five-mile zone.” “Sir,” said the officer, “I just—” “Furthermore,” interrupted Donald indignantly, “as a citizen I resent being frightened like this!” “Please,” continued the officer, “calm down, relax—” “Relax!” shouted Donald, overwrought. “You’re going to give me a traffic ticket, and you want me to relax!” “Mister,” pleaded the officer, “give me a chance to talk. I am not giving you a ticket.” “No?” said Donald, astonished. “I just wanted to inform you that your right rear tire is flat.” But nobody is ready to listen to what the other is saying. Have you ever listened to what the other is saying? Before a word is uttered, you have already concluded. Your conclusions have become fixed; you are no longer liquid. To become frozen is to become idiotic, to remain liquid is to remain intelligent. Intelligence is always flowing like a river. Unintelligence is like an ice cube, frozen. Unintelligence is always consistent, because it is frozen. It is definite, it is certain. Intelligence is inconsistent, it is flowing. It has no definition, it goes on moving according to situations. It is responsible, but it is not consistent.” 0 likes
