Help in Understanding the Emotions

Strong emotions that we don't know how to handle effectively lie at the core of so many difficulties in the life of the individual. They can affect our relationships with loved ones, and how we function in our work. They play a profound role in how we feel about ourselves, and can even affect our physical health.

this was a great book for me to read. There are things in the book that are not for everyone, you take out of it what you need for yourself. I plan on reading more of his books

It's not very difficult to read Osho, but it takes a great more deal of attention to understand the message he wants to transmit. In this book, Osho describes anger, solitude and fear of many kinds and gives simple examples from everyday life to illustrate the connection between our thinking and these emotions. Also, the idea that I liked most was that understanding the emotions like fear, anger or jealousy can transform them from negative to positive ones. I think this was a great book for me....more

No crei q un libro pudiera cambiar tanto mi forma de pensar...ero la verdad vale la pena, tampoco creí que lo acabara en un dia jaja
While this book had some good points, it was a just too weird for me. It referenced multiple religions, and sometimes in weird ways. Also at the end it gives many exercises that help the reader release certain emotions, but some of them were pretty strange. I wouldn't recommend this book unless you're really looking for something out of the ordinary.
I think to read a book like this you have to be open to what it wants to tell you. To be honest, I did feel that some parts were useful, and others less so.

A couple of (out of context) quotes I quite enjoyed are:

'You can kill the person, but a dead person will not be of much use.'


'the unnatural is phony and American.'

That's a great book. Thanks to Osho, I have learned how to transform my anger and other harmful emotions into love and happiness. It is magical.
Superb book by Osho. I wish this was my first Osho book. Its very helpful. Great!

One of the most provocative and inspiring spiritual teachers of the twentieth century, Osho defies categorization - reflecting everything from the individual quest for meaning to the most urgent social and political issues facing society today. His books are not written but are transcribed from recordings of extemporaneous talks given over a period of thirty-five years. Osho has been described by...more
