Synopsis

Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to fact it. This book provides a bird's-eye view of the whole terrain-where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to find the courage to face them. In the process, Osho proposes that 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.

The book begins with an in-depth exploration of the meaning of courage and how it is expressed in the everyday life of the individual. Unlike books that focus on heroic acts of courage in exceptional circumstances, the focus here is on developing the inner courage that enables us to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears-in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here.

Courage also features a number of meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people deal with their fears.

  • Courage - the door to joy
    From Amazon

    Each book I read of Osho contains a message that is for me alone. I feel as if I am in the presence of Osho and yet he is nothing more than the messenger delivering what is meant for me to read. Each page of this book or any of his books, holds an 'AHA' moment for me. Just for an example, on page 137: "Death is a quantum jump from one body, from one form into another form. But is not an end to you. You were never born and you never die. You are always here." This is what I have always been told about God. But it is also for me.

  • I'd give Osho 5 galaxies!
    From Amazon

    When one would figure that every facet of courage has been covered, Osho has surprises in store. I am just speechless over his descriptive language and ability to get spiritual concepts across. This book has greatly enhanced my understanding of the great unknown which we often pretend is not out there. Osho invites us not to follow him but to take these leaps on our own. We are reminded of our divine right to question everything as opposed to having someone else take guide or take care of us. This book is permeated with lighthearted humor in each chapter that it just adds to the intoxicating pleasure I derive from it. I have kept this book within reach daily as I enjoy it wholeheartedly. I give this book 5 galaxies!

  • Refreshing and challenging
    From Amazon

    OSHO certainly has a point with his world view. The book is quite provocative, has many simple annecdotes and is easy to understand. It is not as easy to put it to action, but it is worth a try.

  • Empowering.
    From Amazon

    osho's explanations are well written and concise. he makes a lot of interesting points and they are supplemented with old tales that bring to light what he is describing. He maintains that one should think for oneself and not be a follower of anything.

  • Osho challenges us all.
    From Amazon

    This book is the second Osho book I have read and it is what we all should read and understand. Great insight into ourselves and others. Osho never stops making you challenge yourself. Truly words to live by.
