Osho, also known as Acharya Rajneesh, was one of the most controversial and misconstructed personalities the world has ever seen during the 70s and 80s. A dynamic personality who could not be inhabited by the United States, one of the most liberal countries. Yes, he talked about intimacy, sex, happiness, relationships and to follow one’s heart but aren’t all these very basic threads of humanity. He was denied entry in many western countries and returned to India in the late 80s. Osho was one of the speakers who talked about the ways of the world in the most raw way. We handpicked two books from his special collection, OSHO – Insights for a new way of living, to bring 10 quotes everyone should follow this year.

Intimacy1. Intimacy is a totally different dimension. It is allowing the other to come into you, to see you as you see yourself-to allow the other to see you from inside, to invite somebody to that deepest core of your being.
– Intimacy, Trusting oneself and the other

2. If you are ready to be intimate, you will encourage the other person also to be intimate. Your unpretentious simplicity will allow the other also to enjoy simplicity, innocence, love, openness.
– Intimacy, Trusting oneself and the other

3. The unintelligent person is easily understood. He fits with the gestalt of society; the society has values and criteria by which to judge him. But it takes years for society, to evaluate a genius.
– Intimacy, Trusting oneself and the other

4. People live their whole lives believing in what others say, dependent on others. That’s why people are very afraid of others’ opinions. If they think you are bad, you become bad. If they condemn you, you start condemning yourself.
– Intimacy, Trusting oneself and the other

5. If a person really trusts you, it is impossible to cheat him, almost impossible.
– Intimacy, Trusting oneself and the other

Joy6. Don’t sympathise too much with people who are miserable. If somebody is miserable, help but don’t sympathise. Don’t give him the idea that misery is something worthwhile.
-Joy, The Happiness That Comes From Within

7. The ambitious person is the unhappiest in the world. But we go on training children to be ambitious, “Be the first, be at the top, and you will be happy!”
-Joy, The Happiness That Comes From Within

8. Joy has to be shared, by sharing it you are unburdened, by sharing it new sources open up within you, new streams, new springs. That sharing of your joy is love.
-Joy, The Happiness That Comes From Within

9. People are not at ease within themselves, otherwise these people will go mad. Each decade a great war is needed to unburden humanity of its neurosis.
-Joy, The Happiness That Comes From Within

10. While you are alive, you are unique. Only corpses are all alike, alive persons are unique. They are never similar-they cannot be. Life never follows any repetitive course.
-Joy, The Happiness That Comes From Within
