Emotions Freedom from Anger, Jealousy and Fear
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 trapped in the dilemma of "expression" versus "repression." Expressing our emotions can often hurt others, but by repressing them – even in the benevolent guise of "self-control" – we risk hurting ourselves.
Osho offers a third alternative, which is to understand the roots of our emotions and to develop the knack of watching them and learning from them as they arise, rather than being "taken over" by them.

    Excerpt from the Introduction:
  • "The title of this little book might give readers the idea that they have found another ‘how to” book. Not at all – this book will provide you with a different dimension, where all the questions about ‘how’ are dissolved into a direct perception of your own, hidden reality. Osho says,

    " ‘We reduce everything into a how. There is a great how-to-ism all over the world, and every person, particularly the modern contemporary mind, has become a how-to-er: how to do this, how to do that, how to grow rich, how to be successful, how to influence people and win friends, how to meditate, even how to love. The day is not far off when some stupid guy is going to ask how to breathe. It is not a question of how at all. Don't reduce life into technology. Life reduced into technology loses all flavor of joy.’

    Here you will find insights to unlock your own intuitive understanding of yourself and your inner world. Some of the ideas you encounter may disturb you, may go against everything you think you already know. Others may fill you with the shock of recognition, as they bring words to a truth that it suddenly feels you have always known.

    "Whatever the case, relax… give it some time to sink in and watch. Come back to it again and again – and soon you will find new levels of understanding growing between the lines, as you come closer and closer to the truth of your own being.

    "No, this is not a ‘how to’ book. It is a lamp that you can use, no matter who you are, to light the hidden corners of your own unique individuality."

  • customer review on, by Upapalmtree:

    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).
