Feel the power of words that lead to enlightenment. The ABC of Enlightenment is Osho's lively -- and surprising -- ABC of the inner spiritual life. He defines words in contemporary language that lead to practical enlightenment. But the ABC of Enlightenment is much more -- as Osho defines each word, he offers ways readers can experience those words spiritually -- often by shocking them out of thinking they already know what the word means so they can more powerfully experience the meaning of the word: Acceptance -- Just for 24 hours, try it -- total acceptance, whatsoever happens. Someone insults you, don't react, and see what happens. Suddenly you will feel an energy flowing in you that you have not felt before. Gurus -- Gurus and disciples are mind phenomena. Because you mind needs gurus, there are gurus...This is a game. Some people enjoy it so they play it. If you enjoy it, play it deeply; if you don't enjoy it, forget it. Mantras -- Chanting a mantra can only dull your mind; all repetition dulls the mind, makes you silly and stupid...The real silence is positive; it has energy in it, it is intelligent, aware, full of life and zest. Sex -- Sex should be more fun than such a serious affair as it has been made in the past. It should be like a game, a play: two persons playing with each other's bodily energies. Transcendence -- You don't have to transcend anything. You have to live everything that is natural to you, and live it fully, without any inhibition...Just by living it deeply, a transcendence will come. If you try to transcend, you are going to repress...The ABC of Enlightenment offers a basic, practical language of words and terms that enlighten and empower.
