The Magic of Self-Respect

So much of the experience of everyday life, says Osho in this insightful guide, is shaped by religious and social conditioning — and we are not even aware of the fact. We are constantly being pulled away from the unique nature that is our birthright. In place of that original and unique self, a false self called the “ego” is constructed that eventually gains control of our creativity, our ideas about what it means to be successful, our relationships, and our very experience of who we are. At the same time, he argues, the collection of egos known as “society” shapes our political, educational, and religious institutions, which in turn combine to force the same old patterns onto new generations. In this book, Osho shows how to discard these old patterns in favor of a new and nurturing trinity of watchfulness, awareness, and alertness. The bundled DVD lets readers directly experience the insights of this important modern mystic.

If you re-spect, if you look again and go deep into your existence, you are going to find the place where you started losing yourself and gaining the ego, the false self. That moment is a moment of illumination.—Osho

Ask something that you want to ask.

Shomahas quoted7 months ago
“Respect” is one of the most beautiful words in the English language. It does not mean what it has come to mean, “honor.” No, respect simply means re-spect, to look again. Just look again. Before you became part of a society, a culture, a civilization, you knew your real self. It is not a coincidence that people go on thinking of their childhood as the most beautiful part of their life. It is a long-forgotten memory, because there have been days in your life, the earliest days, when you had your real self.
If you re-spect, if you look again and go deep into your existence, you are going to find the place where you started losing yourself and gaining the ego, the false self. That moment is a moment of illumination.—Osho
