In Freedom, Osho outlines three stages freedom. The first is freedom from, which is a freedom that comes from breaking out of what he calls the psychological slavery imposed by outside forces such as parents, society, or religion. The next stage is freedom for, a positive freedom that comes from embracing and creating something such as a fulfilling relationship. And lastly there is just freedom, the highest and ultimate freedom. This last freedom is more than being for or against something; it is the freedom of simply being oneself and responding truthfully to each moment.The Insights for a New Way of Living series aims to shine light on beliefs and attitudes that prevent individuals from being their true selves. The text is an artful mix of compassion and humor, and readers are encouraged to confront what they would most like to avoid, which in turn provides the key to true insight and power.
