Intuition: Knowing Beyond Logic by Osho
I was given this book as a present and it is quite a humbling experience to review it. The true essence of this book is what we as human beings have lost. A true sense of trust in intuition and our inner guide. In writing this sentence you will instantly know whether such a book is right or wrong for you to read.
Readers are seekers or those with an interest in the subject. With elements of the principles of yoga, the words induce meditation.
The book starts with the barriers we place on our mind and how this affects us. With particular reference to how we rely on the head in the form of intellect to control our lives. Intuition is the mystery and indescribable sensation we fear to believe in.
Though the writer is a male there are quite a few condemnations of the male traits that rely too much on intellect than feelings or intuition. There is very much a preference to Eastern culture compared to Western values.
With such strong opinions, the author stresses that you follow the book as a guide rather than as a rule or cult. Using the information to reflect and to follow your feelings, which is the aim of the book.
This book appeals to my interest in intuition and that sense that society is not following the right path. For fellow readers, it may mean something different and that is its beauty.
A highly recommended read and I will leave with the author’s definition of success: “Success is ego fulfilment, not bliss”.
