Trust : living spontaneously and embracing life

Trust : living spontaneously and embracing life

Osho, 1931-1990, author.
2017

In Trust: Living Spontaneously and Embracing Life, one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century discusses the importance of believing in our own ideals and truths--and not giving in to the powerful societal influences that govern the world.We live in times where trust in old institutions and their relevance to our lives have evaporated. Religions, ideologies, political systems, morals, family, marriages--none of these traditional institutions are working anymore. Osho's insight is that the institutions of the past have used the false substitutes of "belief" and "faith" as control mechanisms of society. Whereas authentic trust comes from within, belief systems are imposed from the outside by religious and social institutions.Osho encourages readers to rediscover and reclaim the innate trust that is born with each individual. No more demands to trust in an "other." No more faith and belief, with their demands that we drop all questioning and doubt, but rather a willingness to honor our questions and doubts so fully that they will lead us to our unique, authentic, and individual truth.Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy 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. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
