,تنها کارهایی را انجام دهید که برایتان خوشایند باشد
,کارهایی که برای شما و اطرافیانتان شادی و خوشی به همراه بیاورد
کارهایی که به زندگی شما و اطرافیانتان نوایی خوشایند از شادی ببخشد
.تنها کافیست به همه با عشق و محبت نگاه کنید,,

تو می دانی، در واقع معتقدی که بدون عشق، شادی و لذت وجود ندارد؛ بدون عشق، زندگی معنا ندارد؛ بدون عشق احساس تشنگی ناشناخته ای به تو دست می دهد، احساس پوچ بودن و به ثمر نرسیدن. بدون عشق، انسان تهی است، هیچ چیز ندارد؛ همچون صندوقی است بدون محتوا. تو این پوچی و تهی بودن و نارضایتی ناشی از آن را احساس می کنی...
ولی وقتی که به عشق نزدیک می شوی، ترسی بزرگ بر تو سایه می افکند، شک و تردید ظهور می کند؛ آیا اگر خودت را در عشق رها کنی و به دست آن بسپاریامکان بازگشت برایت وجود خواهد داشت؟ ایا خواهی توانست هویت

می خواستم زندگی کنم ، راهم را بستند
ستایش کردم ، گفتند خرافات است
عاشق شدم ، گفتند دروغ است
گریستم ، گفتند بهانه است
خندیدم ، گفتند دیوانه است
دنیا را نگه دارید ، می خواهم پیاده شوم

The answers are all inside- Osho points this out splendidly in anecdotes and ideas, helping to tell us where to look. Life, Love and Laughter are the fundamentals of being. The journey of self starts and ends within. Live in the moment, for it is all that exists! When that moment is death, some of us may be lucky enough to know that it is only the next great moment meant to be embraced!

To be completely honest I was rather reluctant to read this book. I love any book that has to do with philosophy yet the title and overall aura of the book seemed so cliché, that and the fact that I had never read any books by OSHO makes me think just how lucky my stars were in that moment that I picked it up.

The moment I started reading it, it was as if this work had been written specifically for me at this moment in time. I could relate to every principle and thought. Its scary how much it res

زندگي يك بوم نقاشي سفيد است. اين به تو بستگي دارد. زندگي في نفسه مانند يك بوم سفيد نقاشي است؛ هر چه بر روي ان بكشي همان مي شود. مي تواني رنج و محنت بر روي آن نقاشي كني، از طرف ديگر مي توناي نقش شادي و خوشبختي بر آن بيفكني. شكوه و عظمت وجود انساني تو در اين آزادي خلاصه مي شود.

Real book is that which remains not in our memory, but in our being, the very life style. I consider this book as a real book. I remember hardly nothing, but I am living, an feeling the presence of the book in the very breath on my small mustache :)

Thought the title was so cliche at first! But grabbed it anyway. Some ideas he presents are so simple yet often overlooked, it made me laugh out loud (LOL!). Easy read, especially for a "down" day when you need a chin lift.
