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 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

Easy to read but harder to understand. I needed more reflecting and re-reading to fully grasp his messages. Eventually, i learned his ways and it became clearer to me... Transforming anger, jealousy, fear... From a negative to positive.. Only you, yourself can perform.

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

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.

I purchased Emotions: Freedom from Anger, Jealousy, and Fear by Osho to see what I could learn in preparation for a Meetup session on jealousy. It’s a small pocketbook of only 150 pages, and the font is very liberally spaced on those pages making the book seem even shorter than it actually is. I think the book was required to have at least ten comma splices on each page; it’s enough to make a former English teacher like me insane.

The book itself is filled with nuggets of wisdom that I found inte
Another interesting read from Osho, although I didn't find this one as enlightening as his Intuition text. Like other books, the text is composed of excerpts from Osho's many speeches and seems to be written in almost a free-verse style. Osho examines anger, jealousy and fear, but almost half of the book is focused on anger. There were lots of illuminating tidbits and phrases, anecdotes, etc., but Osho's general disdain toward religion and love for blanket statements is definitely present. I've ...more

At first, when I started reading, it was hard to understand, but as I dived deeper in the book, I started not just to understand it, but practice things that Osho mentioned in the book. It helped me very much to understand the world of emotions and also it helped me to get on a path which lead me to learn behavior psychology. I can only recommend this book to those who feel that they are on an emotional roller coaster.

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.'

Recommends it for: those who want to overcome destructive emotions
Shelves: spiritual
Concise yet powerful. This book highlights some great wisdom in how we can address three of the most destructive emotions.

- If something is deepened by your awareness, it is good.
- In controlling you repress, in transformation you express.
- Reaction is emotional blackmail.
- And so much more!

There are some exercises at the end as well. Great read.

I liked his detailed view of Anger and Fear but the exercises to practice releasing them didnt find them helpful at all.

Hasta el hombre más triste sonríe; e incluso el hombre que ríe continuamente a veces llora y sus ojos se llenan de lágrimas.

La momentul cand am citit-o a avut un impact foarte mare asupra mea. Mi-a placut atat de mult incat am cautat si alte carti de ale lui Osho.
Desi am luat cartea pentru a studia emotia-frica, gelozia si furia au fost capitolele care m-au inspirat cel mai mult.
Cartea m-a pus pe ganduri in stilul inegalabil al lui Osho.

“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.” 11 likes
“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.” 9 likes
