“God is a constant search for more and more happiness, joy, and ecstasy.” – Rajneesh (Osho)
If that be true, it seems to me, God must be a process of indulgence in endless materialism. Rather contradictory, but this godman’s definitions have a tendency to be opposed to traditional thought and religion. He is quite clever in his thought and speech, which are recorded in the book, but he caters to his doting audience (American, in this instance) with observations that resonate with their beliefs – for very material reasons. Clearly, if the ‘pursuit of happiness’ be God, Americans must be a very godly people.
“Emptiness is Self.” Another one of his curious observations, presumably equating stillness of the mind, through meditation, to realization of the ‘self.’ Unsupported and unworthy, for it borrows from Buddhism (Tibetan, specifically) while seemingly contradicting that group’s belief that there is no ‘self.’
I read no further. Not recommended at all.
