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. And we are too often trapp

This book helped me a lot in dealing with my negative energy. Osho is a great person, he really understands the human psych and his book provides methods and ways of dealing with it. Just like love, anger is a part of each and everyone of us, everybody gets angry. The only difference between us is how we deal with that anger and if we let it project to the people around us and turn into a chain reaction. I love this book, I always keep it next to my bed to be able to go through it whenever I for ...more

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

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

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

This book is very good to the people that need a help in their lifes.
However for me, was one more book of personal superation
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.'

I am extremely sceptical about Oshi's sect-ish business, but I have to admit this book is a quality product. It is inspirational, accessible to down-to-earth minds and priceless in a sense that you would have to spend lots of money on mind-blowing substances to achieve similar psychedelic insights.
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!

“You are feeling sad? Befriend it. Have compassion for it. Sadness also has a being. Allow it, embrace it, sit with it, hold hands with it. Be friendly. Be in love with it. Sadness is beautiful! Nothing is wrong with it. Who told you that something is wrong in being sad? In fact, only sadness gives you depth. Laughter is shallow; happiness is skin-deep. Sadness goes to the very bones, to the marrow. Nothing goes as deep as sadness.” 5 likes
“The only problem with sadness, desperation, anger, hopelessness, anxiety, anguish, misery, is that you want to get rid of them. That’s the only barrier. You will have to live with them. You cannot just escape. They are the very situation in which life has to integrate and grow. They are the challenges of life. Accept them. They are blessings in disguise. If you want to escape from them, if you somehow want to get rid of them, then a problem arises – because if you want to get rid of something you never look at it directly.” 3 likes
