One of the most important life events is falling in love, yet we never learn about it in school. Societies and religions force us into models and thought-forms that are often in opposition to an organic model of love, which is instead institutionalized by marriage, religious affiliations, and nationalism. This results in love that is, for most people, a painful challenge in one form or another throughout life. In these modern days, where the focus shifts more and more to realizing one's individual potential, Osho helps us to direct our search for love by widening our view - showing us that love has many manifestations and is not limited to the 'other'. One manifestation of love is meditation, a life-changing experience that allows the flowering of real love within oneself and toward others.
The Osho Life Essentials series focuses on the most important questions in the life of the individual. Each volume contains timeless yet contemporary investigations and discussions into questions vital to our personal search for meaning and purpose. The Osho Life Essentials series focuses on questions specific to our inner life and quality of existence; for example, is it possible to have an authentic spirituality without a belief in God? What is meditation and how does it work? What can I do as an individual to make the world a better place?
