From Personality to Individuality
One of the most remarkable things about this book is Osho’s capacity to look at popularly held concepts from a completely different perspective – turning them inside out, to reveal their true workings and show the effect that such “perceived wisdom” has on people and their lives.
For example, the Christian’s belief in God the Father simply because of having been brought up that way, or the Hindu’s conviction that God is playing with the universe yet man must worship in seriousness. Or, Osho takes the dictum “Power corrupts,” and reveals that in fact men who have corruptibility are drawn toward the power that enables them to live it out. The good man has no need for power because goodness can manifest without it, and so the energy is free to turn to creativity.
This book is a blueprint for a new, and happier, humanity; one in which each person celebrates living at one with his inner being, and through that, with all that surrounds him. Osho’s outstanding ability to convey a radically new vision to the reader makes it all seem very simple – you will find yourself recognizing what you have always felt inside, but never before heard expressed.
