Love, Freedom, and Aloneness: On Relationships, Sex, Meditation, and Silence (English Edition) Kindle电子书
Osho, one of the greatest spiritual thinkers of the twentieth century, explores the connections between ourselves and others in Love, Freedom, and Aloneness: The Koan of Relationships.
In today’s world, freedom is our basic condition, and until we learn to live with that freedom, and learn to live by ourselves and with ourselves, we are denying ourselves the possibility of finding love and happiness with someone else.
Love can only happen through freedom and in conjunction with a deep respect for ourselves and the other. Is it possible to be alone and not lonely? Where are the boundaries that define “lust” versus “love”...and can lust ever grow into love? In Love, Freedom, and Aloneness you will find unique, radical, and intelligent perspectives on these and other essential questions. In our post-ideological world, where old moralities are out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives. We have the chance to start afresh with ourselves, our relationships to others, and to find fulfillment and success for the individual and for society as a whole.
Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

On the positive side, there are incredible words as "Love is the only freedom from attachemnt" "Attached to Nothing" etc etc...
Shortly: Worth reading, but don't take everything too seriously
Some things brought up new perspectives of things that have been holding me back.
Even the question of what is love had been troubling me. I haven't been able to say i love you. Not out of fear etc. But i know i have love deep down for this person and my soul would not choose another. Osho clarified a lot to this question i had within me. Even though i haven't said this phrase much to the person, my state of being, is love with this person. Love is not always passion and intense desires burning in your heart. It ebbs and flows. A natural rhythm. There is freedom.
It really is all about perspective. Thank you.
