Creativity: Unleashing the Forces Within
From one of the greatest spiritual leaders of the twentieth century, Creativity: Unleashing the Forces Within will inspire you to nurture your inner ideas and innovations—and apply them in every aspect of your life.
As Osho points out in this book’s foreword, historically, the creative person has been all but forced to rebel against the society.
But nowadays, the situation has dramatically changed. In today’s world, the ability to respond creatively to new challenges is demanded of everybody, from corporate CEOs to “soccer moms.” Those whose toolbox for dealing with life includes only what they have learned in the past from their parents and their teachers are at a distinct disadvantage both in their relationships and in their careers. Making a switch from imitative and rule-bound behavior to creative innovation and flexibility requires a profound change in our attitudes about ourselves and our capabilities.
Creativity is a handbook for those who understand the need to bring more creativity, playfulness, and flexibility to their lives. It’s a manual for thinking “outside the box”—and learning to live there as well.
Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy 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. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
