"Un mapa del despertar de la mano de la sabiduria de Osho. Cuanto mas consciente se vuelve uno, mas se recuerda a si mismo, con mas cautela actua, mas alerta esta, mas heridas empiezan a desaparecer, hay menos brotes de ira, menos odio, menos celos y menos sentimientos posesivos. Un dia, uno simplemente descubre que todo eso se ha vuelto irrelevante, ha pasado a ser historia antigua, ya no se trata de cuestiones vivas sino de cuestiones muertas. Cuanto mas consciente se vuelve uno, mas y mas heridas se curan y mas se afianza la salud y la integridad. En esto consiste el milagro de adquirir conciencia: en que todo lo que es erroneo empieza a desvanecerse y todo lo que es correcto empieza a suceder. Individualmente, y como sociedad, la cuestion primordial es decidir si preferimos estar dormidos o despiertos, inconscientes o conscientes. Este libro presenta un mapa del despertar de la mano de la sabiduria de Osho." ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Underlying all meditation techniques, including martial arts-and in fact underlying all great athletic performances-is a quality of being awake and present to the moment, a quality that Osho calls awareness. Once we can identify and understand what this quality of awareness is, we have the key to self-mastery in virtually every area of our lives. According to great masters like Lao Tzu or Buddha, most of us move through our lives like sleepwalkers. Never really present in what we are doing, never fully alert to our environment, and not even aware of what motivates us to do and say the things we do. At the same time, all of us have experienced moments of awareness-or awakening, to use another-in extraordinary circumstances. On the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, time seems to stop and one is suddenly aware of every movement, every sound, every thought. Or in moments that touch us deeply-welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, or being with someone at the moment of death. Awareness, says Osho, is the key to being self-directed, centered, and free in every aspect of our lives. In this book, Osho teaches how to live life more attentively, mindfully, and meditatively, with love, caring and consciousness. OSHO challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the "1000 Makers of the 20th Century" and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people-along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha-who have changed the destiny of India. More than a decade after his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
