Synopsis

"Hit-and-run" relationships have become common in our society as it has grown more rootless, less tied to traditional family structures, and more accepting of casual sex. But at the same time, there arises an undercurrent of feeling that something is missing-a quality of intimacy.

This quality has very little to do with the physical, though sex is certainly one possible door. Far more important is a willingness to expose our deepest feelings and vulnerabilities, with the trust that the other person will treat them with care. Ultimately, the willingness to take the risk of intimacy has to be grounded in an inner strength that knows that even if the other remains closed, even if that trust is betrayed, we will not suffer any permanent damage.

In this gentle and compassionate guide, Osho takes his readers step-by-step through what makes people afraid of intimacy, how to encounter those fears and go beyond them, and what they can do to nourish themselves and their relationships to support more openness and trust.

OSHO challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people-along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha-who have changed the destiny of India. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

  • Osho? Never heard of him...
    From Amazon

    I was directed to this book by a friend at work who said the book helped her with intimate relationships. I am a Christian, so I was a little leary of "venturing out" of the ordinary authors to find advice on intimacy. I found a lot of what Osho said about intimacy very sensible, realistic, and applicable to most all people who have problems with becoming intimate with others. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their chances with others in an intimate relationship.

  • After reading it myself.. I bought more copies for family and friends
    From Amazon

    Osho is the greatest, and this is one of my favorite books of his teachings. He is so wise, and helps in so many different ways for me to see the ego I am living in which makes me anxious, gives me shallow thinking and breathing, and prevents me from seeing the world as it really is, ie. in the present moment, instead of colored by the past, or by thoughts of the future.
    This book focuses on how living in our usual mind sets keeps us, through fear and ignorance, from intimacy with ourselves, with others, and with the Earth and the Universe itself.
    I have given copies to my two adult children and a close friend and they seem to enjoy the book as much as I do. It is one you'll read over and over.

  • very disappointing
    From Amazon

    i was not impressed with the style and contents at all. very gender biased and way too authoritarian for my liking.

  • Only if I knew this three relationships ago!
    From Amazon

    It's never too late to learn to love and be loved! This book was enlightening - it helped me to understand myself within an intimate relationship and also how I relate to all people. Some of what you will learn: you must first love and accept who you really are to love another..live in the moment not the past or future...to trust another (the ultimate respect one can give) you must first trust yourself...love does not possess...be insecure in love NOT secure (security will never satisfy you!)...live life like a child...it's okay to be selfish...love doesn't think in terms of uglyness or beauty...it is rare to find a person that totally fits with you...don't be in a hurry to marry...spiritual harmony is most important in a relationship. The book is very well written (Osho does not write to impress) and full of wisdom! You will never be the same within a relationship after reading it, I promise!

  • Intimacy From the Inside Out
    From Amazon

    Osho writes with such brilliance, and brings fantastic analogies and examples of people who long for intimacy, and simultaneously destroy it. People that are searching, be it for spiritual growth, career growth, or material success, they are searching everywhere but within.

    Through this fantastic book, you will learn how to trust yourself to be vulnerable with yourself first so then you can share genuinely with another.

    You will learn how to define what you love, and how to embrace this moment, create the relationship you have with yourself, so you can then RELATE to another. There need not be a ball and chain around your neck, and this book will help you to see that if anyone has been preventing genuine and authentic intimacy in your life, it is you, and your fears. Through this book you will learn how to uncover them, and get to know and truly love the REAL you, so you can then love another and feel safe, comfortable, and free at the same time.

    Osho's writing style is tremendously enjoyable to read. His wisdom is profoundly enlightened, and this book will truly help you uncover much about yourself in the relationship department. Highly Recommended!
