      yata I have finally finished this book I could only read a little of this book at a time I would read a few pages and then have to put down the book and think about what I had read Did I agree with Osho s views What were my views on the issue All in all, it was a good exercise for me to go through It s amazing how much you learn about yourself when you question your own views.

    2. ChaosInGa on said:

      Few of my fav passages from the book It is beautiful to be alone, it is also beautiful to to be in love, to be with people And they are complementary, not contradictory you can only enjoy aloneness ONLY if you can enjoy relationships It is relationship that creates the need for aloneness, it is a rhythm A person who knows how to be alone is never lonely People who don t know how to alone, they are lonely Great music is a sythesis between sound and silence like love and aloneness Love gives freed [...]

      This book is not easy to read Because of what society have taught us I read this book few pages at the time and then I had to put it down because this new information was too overwhelming In a good way though Deeper I went into this book, delighted and happy I felt I tried meditation and I experienced my meditation honeymoon as Osho mentioned would happen And after honeymoon phase, meditation was harder, yes But I didn t gave up because I felt that Osho has guided me well and gave me good tools [...]

    4. Jeannie Mancini on said:

      I have very recently been introduced to Osho A Zen Buddhist Guru that was popular in the 1970s, Acharaya Rajneesh, popularly known as Osho, was an international Indian mystic, and spiritual teacher with an insight that could only be described as enlightened Although Osho penned hundreds of books before he died in 1990, Love, Freedom, Aloneness A Koan of Relationships was my first experience getting to know him and his teachings Within just a few pages my heart started racing and my own thoughts [...]

    5. Victoria on said:

      I loved this book It was hard to understand at firstI think you really have to approach it with a completely open mind and just really listen to what he s saying I got a little disinterested when he went on a we should all live in small communes tangent only because it s basically impossible to even imagine it in today s world , but otherwise his anecdotes were amusing and full of very wise insights that only further drove his points home Everything in the title of this book you will come to lea [...]

    6. Janet on said:

      It s quite repetitive It s at times a bit eccentric It s not really well written Although this was explained in the About the Author section at the end This book was NOT written , but transcribed from 35 years worth of Osho s extemporaneous talks, which explains the repetition and average writing It s definitely not for the conservative, especially Christian, set That being said s one of the most insightful and valuable books I ve read in my 46 years How awesome to have my personal but oft inval [...]

      i have this book on order and wish i had the presence of mind to preview it extensively before buying it i found these gems in the google books preview Man is the only being on Earth who has freedom A dog is born a dog, will live like a dog, will die like a dog there is no freedomThis is where man is totally different This is the dignity of man, his specialness in existence, his uniqueness A dog is going to remain a dog his whole life, he is not going to evolve, grow Yes, he will become aged, o [...]

    8. Nugraha on said:

      This book challenged me to re question my paradigm as well as provided so much insights and ideas to contemplate on One of the powerful things I found from this piece of profound work was the statement one is enough unto oneself, and one doesn t require anything else Thanks Osho

    9. Ursa on said:

      If you ask me if I enjoy this book, the answer is no It made me uncomfortable, it cemented some of my knowledge and believes and it shook some others But if you ask me if this book is a good read, I would say yes, for the same reason.To me, a good read doesn t always comfort and provide you all the answers that you readily agree with A good read makes you feel and think, it makes you question your prior knowledge a good read might contain theses that you vehemently disagree with, and yet can t e [...]

    10. Dave Malone on said:

      Many concepts in this book are fabulous And I have recommended it to folks especially in their twenties and thirties who are in relationships who need to explore what it means to be alone The necessity for alone time is so important, and Osho delves into this He has some great anecdotes which have stayed with me today, and I highly recommend this book The only drawbacks be aware is his repetition of language in getting across a concept and some far out ideas about abstinence and communal living.

    11. EunSung on said:

      i seem to rate books really high, but this was a really good book this was my first time reading osho i resonated a lot with what he said about love starting from the person first and that we must love ourselves before we can love others love tied to being alone and freedom.

    12. SJ Loria on said:

      Be wary the advice of theorists instead of practitioners Having finished Love, Freedom, and Aloneness, I thought maybe I shouldn t look this guy up before I write a view of the theories he advocates in order to give it a fair chance But I had to see if he was a monk or lived a normal life Answer, monk Not in the traditional sense, based on the way he writes I have no doubt he seduced many a hippie back to his hut to show them the energy of sex But I had no idea the egregious greed and level of c [...]

    13. Ahmad Asmar on said:

      1 He has spoken of good and solid points like fear making Fear that is made by both political and theological authorities.2 he was so deep when he talked about the self love, selfishness, illusion of love and social serving.3 his talk about aloneness is deep and insightful 4 vague and contradictory analysis of love.5 attacking sex and defending it on contradictory terms depending on his contradictory position of love 6 attacking ideologies while adhering one.7 the idea of commune sex is a perfec [...]

    14. Nadia A on said:

      I loved this book It forced me to unlearn and challenge things I ve been taught by society and the norms its imposed on us and we ve imposed on ourselves Simply put, it totally changed my perspective on the meanings of love, freedom and aloneness For the better I would definitely read this book again And again.

    15. Susie on said:

      I didn t like itI agree we can have different points of view of the diverse aspects of life, but this guy is against EVERYTHING I really don t think that all human race is egocentric and faking love I ll keep what was useful 2 paragraphs of the entire book and throw the rest away

    16. Misti on said:

      I discovered the true meaning of love, that there is a difference between being alone and being lonely In addition, I learned that through aloneness and meditation you can discover yourself and ultimately true bliss.

    17. Nieva21 on said:

      I am keeping this book as a primary source in my library that I may re read and reference from time to time I feel it s the kind of book that is necessary to read in different phases in one s life and still be able to gather new information from It isn t stuffy either It s written in a simplistic style that relates to all ages and across all lifestyles This book doesn t preach, which is why I love it and put it in my favorite section It instead, gives you some food for thought There is really no [...]

    18. Justo Montibeller on said:

      El mensaje general de Amor, Libertad y Soledad, me pareci bueno Habla de que el amor no deber a de ser apego, la relaci n no deber a de ser esclavitud, el crecimiento espiritual no deber a de ser represi n, y la soledad no deber a de ser aislamiento Todo lo anterior llega a perjudicar nuestra libertad y nos trae sufrimiento, y por lo tanto, infelicidad El amor va de la mano con el crecimiento espiritual, y el ser humano necesita tanto de momentos de relaci n como de soledad.La raz n por la que l [...]

    19. Michael Haupt on said:

      Easily one of the best books on relationships I ve read, and I ve read a ton Really resonated with a lot of what Osho has to say, and of course, I wish I could have said things as succinctly as he does when going through troublesome relationships Particularly enjoyed his take on aloneness Highly recommended.

    20. Mehmet Kır on said:

      I read this book with Turkish edition two years ago During reading, i underlined some important sentences to understand this book.Generally,Osho s ideas and books seem different to me,but some ideas of Osho are logical I remember a quote from this book People don t realize that they don t know what love is.

    21. Micah Abat on said:

      if i couldif i could i would buy a million copies of this and distribute it to everyone in my neighborhood and everyone living in the condominium i used to live in, all of my schoolmates, everyone at work but i don t have that much money, so I ll just send one over to my friend, and keep a copy available for anyone in my family to read in the living room

    22. Amanda on said:

      This book did, and still continues, to shift the way I look at relationships.

    23. Lindsey on said:

      i ve purchased three copies of this fantastically written, empowering book yet not one sits upon my shelves and that is because it is a treasure to be shared.

      Bello il suo modo di spiegare in modo semplice quello che a volte pensiamo che sia troppo complesso Ottimo libro sull a.

    25. Sach Singh on said:

      This is an amazing book which, I think, explains an extremely important topic very well So much suffering is caused by the confusions that this book addresses to resolve Osho never fails

    26. Danielle on said:

      One of the most enlightening, life altering books I ve ever been fortunate enough to read.

    27. Danyo on said:

      Lessi questo libro a 17 anni, e capii ben poco Dopo molti anni, approfondimenti vari in tema di filosofie orientali, e una laurea in psicologia, ho capito molto di pi Osho propone una prospettiva dell a chiaramente diversa dalla concezione odierna non come bisogno dipendenza attaccamento, ma come condivisione, a partire da una base di consapevolezza e felicit nella solitudine Ogni tanto mi sembra contraddirsi nel secondo e nel terzo capitolo dice cose che cozzano un po con le premesse del primo [...]
