Book Description

Oct. 15 2013
Emotional reactions which carry us away are one of the most common causes of bad moods and interpersonal relationship problems. Both in our personal life as well as at work, emotions burden our relationships, influence our well-being and sometimes even attack our physical health.
This book is a simple guide to a better understanding of emotions. Anger, jealousy, and fear are the three big topics of this book, together with some simple meditations to deal with these emotions. The book consist of short quotes and text excerpts, giving the reader unusual and new insights into an understanding of emotions. Our feelings play a profound role in how we feel about ourselves, and they can even affect our physical health. Often we are trapped in the dilemma between "expression" and "repression." Although expressing our emotions can easily scare or hurt others, by repressing them we risk hurting ourselves. Osho offers a third alternative: to understand the roots of our emotions and develop the knack of watching them and learning from them as they arise, rather than being "taken over" by them. Eventually we find that even the most challenging and difficult situations no longer have the power to provoke us and cause us pain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Buddhist, but enjoyed it Oct. 16 2010
By RKirsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
I'm not a Buddhist, but a Christian. I started reading, just to see what it was about and read the whole thing. The beginning is a very relaxing read and had some highlightable/clipable quotes. I do have different religious beliefs, this book offered some areas for further prayer and contemplation but I did not find these areas offensive so much as a beneficial exposure to a different perspective. Overall, I'm glad that I had a chance to read this book and learn a little about who OSHA is. Thanks to Amazon.com for having this book in Kindle format so I could start reading it in 60 seconds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great thoughts, weird at the end Jan. 10 2011
By Jeremy Aldrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This collection of Osho's wisdom, recorded from extemporaneous speeches rather than written all at once, offered many insights into the nature of negative and positive emotions. I definitely highlighted quite a few pearls like:
"Many people think that sentimentality is spirituality. But emotions are as mental as thoughts, and what you call your heart is as much in your head as your head. You can become emotional very easily. You can cry and weep with tears falling down, big pearl-like tears - but it is nothing spiritual."
"Sadness is passive anger and anger is active sadness."
"When you see anger in others, go and dig within yourself and you will find it there; when you see too much ego in others, just go inside and you will find ego sitting there. The inside functions like a projector; others become screens and you start seeing films on others which are really your own tapes."
"There is one and only one way to understand that to be angry is to be stupid: watch anger in all its phases, be alert to it so it does not catch you unawares; remain watchful, seeing every step of the anger. And you will be surprised: that as awareness about the ways of anger grows, the anger starts evaporating. And when the anger disappears, then there is a peace. Peace is not a positive achievement. When the hatred disappears, there is love. Love is not a positive achievement. When jealousy disappears, there is a deep friendliness towards all."

For me, the only thing that keeps this from being a five star book is the section at the end with "practical" suggestions on exercises for meditation, which are often pseudoscientific and almost all...well, weird.

The format wasn't perfect on the Kindle but the content was great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn how to let go April 13 2011
By Upapalmtree - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent. You are not simply TOLD what to do about dealing with negative emotions, you are shown HOW and WHY! This is NOT just another self help book. This is a book I wish I had read ages ago. We are indeed all taught to suppress rather than channel our negative emotions. This book will show you how to get RID of them by acknowledging them and working through positive solutions.. rather than say grab a drug and addict yourself to trying to escape them (and you never will this way)..
