Nobody can tell you who you are, and yet everybody is looking for a definition from outside. Self-esteem is a hot topic in all the psychological "self help" columns - where again, advice is given from outside on how to boost it. In this volume Osho continues the incredible process of deepening our understanding of who we are - helping us to take a first step, which is to find out who and what we are not. Then we can allow the magic of self-respect to unfold.

The magic of self-respect is that when you start searching for yourself you don't find an objective self, you find a subjectivity... and finding it is such a blessing, such an ecstasy that you will not care a bit about any maps for a paradise "out there" somewhere.

So much of our experience of everyday life is shaped by religious and social conditioning - and we are not even aware of the fact. In every dimension, Osho argues, we are constantly being pulled away from the unique nature that each of us is born with. In place of that original and unique self, a false self called the "ego" is constructed, and that false self 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. And at the same time, the collection of egos known as "society" shapes all of our political, educational and religious institutions, which in turn do their part to reinforce the same old patterns onto new generations of innocent human beings.

Discarding the old trinities we all know from the past, Osho introduces us to a new trinity -- of watchfulness, awareness, alertness.

The enclosed DVD is another living experience of a contemporary mystic at work -at work with you!
