Love Letters to Life

In the age of Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and email, personal letters seem somehow out of date, or at least far from most people's everyday experience. This book is a rare and unique collection of letters personally written by Osho to participants from his early meditation events.
These are not letters to people and their personalities, these are letters to our souls. Osho addresses essential issues and concerns that arise on the path of meditation and self-discovery. The letters are encouragements to continue the process of meditation, and address subjects like Self-Acceptance, Wisdom, Consciousness, The Quest for Life, A Life of Freedom, Earth Is Our Home, Dropping Fear!, Dealing with Anger, Rebellion, and many more in a direct and penetratingly personal way.
Osho explains this about the value of writing letters:
“If I write anything, I write letters, because a letter is as good as something that is spoken. It is addressed. I have not written anything except letters, because to me they are a manner of speaking. The other is always there before me when I write a letter.”
The OSHO works consist almost exclusively of the spoken word, addressed directly to individual people or larger audiences. These talks were recorded and then transcribed and published as books. This book represents one of the rare exceptions in the collected works of Osho, in which his written personal letters are published. Each one of these letters is like an condensed Osho Talk in haiku form.
He would meet with these correspondents time and again at his meditation camps or while staying in their homes. This volume is a selection of his replies to their letters, queries, and calls for help.
His words are intimate, incisive, poetic, playful, and loving. His encouragement to his correspondents to keep going on their chosen path of meditation and awareness while living, loving, and working in the ordinary world — to keep their flame of commitment burning brightly when he is not physically present — can inspire whomever opens this book.

    Wake up and remember. In all your actions, remember that which is watching them. In all your thoughts, let your focus be on that which is behind them. You have to awaken to that place where there is neither action, nor thought, nor movement. It is found beyond space and time. It is found where peace, bliss, and nirvana dwell.
    Once that is found, there is nothing further to attain.

    Asleep or awake, if this longing, this thirst, this remembrance, is in your every breath – if it is the whole focus of your vision – then nothing else needs to be done. Thirst, and thirst alone, is enough to attain it.

    It is very important to remain alert to the kind of wealth that is found on the periphery of life. For only those who realize its illusory nature will set out to search for the treasure that is hidden at the very center of life.
    Finding this wealth will destroy poverty forever, because such wealth can never be taken away from you, and only that which cannot be taken away from you is your own wealth, your personal wealth.
    That which cannot be taken away cannot be found either, because that which can be found can also be lost. Inner wealth simply is. It is everywhere; one simply has to recognize it. In fact, to recognize it is to attain it
