Change is the very quality of life, and in change is insecurity. In this book, Osho teaches us to embrace change rather than being afraid of it.While Osho is most widely known as a meditation teacher, in this groundbreaking work he presents a dramatic wake-up call to the world. A “revolution in consciousness,” he says, is needed to deal with the roots of our current global economic, environmental, and social crises. He takes on issues that usually belong to politics, science, and sociology - including such difficult topics as genetic engineering, overpopulation, and the mass dumbing-down of people by a broken education system. He confronts head on the failure of institutions like marriage and family, along with the destructive forces of nationalism and religious fundamentalism.
The real root of all our problems, he insists, is human unconsciousness. And while many of the solutions he proposes may seem radical to some, it is important to remember that what seemed radical yesterday is today’s common sense. As stated in the introduction, "It is not a question of whether you agree with Osho
it is a question of having the guts to ensure that at least his contribution is on the agenda.” For centuries, human beings have been held captive by unconscious fear and greed. In this revolutionary manual for change, Osho offers a vision of the fully conscious human being - the only type of human being capable to bring about a “golden future” for this beautiful planet we share.
