Love, Freedom and Aloneness

Osho

★★★

 

The second Osho book that I’ve read, following up on Living On Your Own Terms. As with Living On Your Own Terms, Osho doesn’t shy away from criticising the ‘normal’ way of doing things. He presents some alternative views on marriage, relationships, monogamy and love.

Whoever you are, there are sure to be parts of the book that you disagree with — I think it was surely Osho’s intention to stir up debate on the way we do things. Be prepared to have your assumptions questioned.

Although the sections on relationships are interesting, it’s the sections on love that I found compelling. Osho’s idea of a love based on shared experience and joy, rather than attachment and jealousy, surely have some real value. Well worth a read for those ideas alone.
