Life is an adventure or it s nothing Who said that I thoroughly agree There are always obstacles and fears at every point, and the danger is always to give up and lose sight of one s dream The dream is what gives life it s freshness Even if it is lost sight of on occasion, the high peak is still there, beckoning you on, obscured often by mist and lower peaks As Goethe said, Whosoever continually strives upward him can we save I have always continually strived towards the object of my desire, though the road has often been perilous and obstructions have often been placed in my path If there is something you want badly enough nothing can discourage you The trick lies in living with fear and accepting it as a green light rather than a red on i m on a whole OSHO trip as of late I am totally digging on this guy.

The comments below are the result of only a few hours of research on Osho aka Rajneesh Like other serious readers, I routinely try to find out about the authors of books I read These comments present information and links that some Osho fans may find disturbing, but that presumably any past, current or future reader of Courage The Joy of Living Dangerously and his other books would want to know about.
Rajneesh Osho was at the center of many controversies for his entire adult life for good reason, it seems The examples below, taken from among hundreds of Rajneesh Osho s statements and expos s about him, should support this statement Rajneesh Osho described Mahatma Gandhi as a masochist reactionary who worshipped poverty The Indian press began calling him the sex guru because of the indulgent attitude he t If you have not read or listen Osho, one of the Great Spiritual Masters of our timehe was the great motivator of mankindyou must read his works.
This work is one his great works In this book Osho says whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
5 option if I could I thought this was brilliant in places but I have to admit that at times I thought he had taken a bagful of profound sounding words like destiny and inner peace and love and perception and the ego and fearlessness and just decided he would bung them into vaguely profound sounding sentences and see how they come out Sententious Is that the word I m looking for Well overall, if that s the method he chose, they came out very well One of the interesting points that Osho makes is about illness in that we are used to pouring and inundating a weak child with adoration and sympathy the first moment he shows signs of illness and general weakness or disease Osho says that we carry that think ↠´ Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously Â Although this book gave insight into the condition of fear I felt the author s own bias and agenda affected the book in a negative way Osho seemed less like a sage and like a bitter, self righteous person through the examples he gave and the way he presented the information Still, there were some moments of unbiased clarity and I did gain insight from those sections of the book.

I was indecisive whether to give four of five stars but who cares, it was a great book anyway I m into these stuff and appreciate a lot when someone gives you some theoretical insight into spiritual development and how to work on ourselves in a deeper sense Osho is very provocative as a person and uses plain speech while touching the human nature, primarily inner side I like him There are some wonderful sentences in the book which really can make a man start to think thoroughly about himself and his actions in life And maybe the most important thing is that Osho, like many Eastern philosophers provide us with some lessons which we should not take for granted but try to test That s the beauty in it When you try to do some of that in the book you will know it for sure Also, you can t lose anything All in all, it was worth it Great read
