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. Eventually we find that even the most challenging and difficult situations no longer have the power to provoke us and cause us pain.Osho's unique insight into the workings of the mind, the heart, and the essence or “being” of the individual goes far beyond the understandings of conventional psychology. Over more than three decades of work with people from all walks of life, he has developed simple techniques and insights to help modern-day men and women to rediscover their own inner silence and wisdom.

    The fear of death
    is not the fear of death,
    it is a fear of
    remaining unfulfilled

    You are angry, but you cannot remain angry forever.

    Even the angriest man laughs sometimes, has to.

    It cannot become a permanent state of affairs,

    being angry.

    Even the saddest man smiles;

    and even the man who laughs continuously

    sometimes cries and weeps and tears come to his eyes.

    Emotions cannot be permanent.

    That’s why they are called “emotions”!

    The word comes from “motion,” movement.

    They move; hence, they are emotions.

    There are reasons why it makes one nervous. It comes from the unconscious, and all your capacities are in the conscious; all your skill, all your knowledge, is in the conscious. Love comes from the unconscious and you don’t know how to cope with it, what to do with it,
