The Key to Living in Balance
Underlying all meditation techniques, including the 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 word, in extraordinary circumstances: on the road, in a sudden and unexpected accident, when time seems to stop, or in situations that touch us deeply - welcoming a new baby into the world for the first time, being with someone at the moment of death - when we are aware of every movement, every sound, every thought.
Awareness, says Osho, is the key to being self-directed, centered, and free in every aspect if our lives. In this book, Osho teaches us how to live life more attentively, mindfully, and meditatively, with love, caring, and consciousness.
