The Joy Of Living Dangerously

By: Osho


The Politics Of Numbers

“In a society, there is a deep expectation that you will behave exactly like others. The moment you behave a little bit differently you become a stranger, and people are very much afraid of strangers.”

(page 103)


Hermit Poet’s Comments: Organizations and individuals can break a person’s self-esteem and convert them into walking empty shells. When a person tries to fit in they lose there independence.

For as long as I can remember, I have been a bit eccentric, and have never cared what others think of me. I just keep reaching for the stars and walking that milky way of life while I wear my funny hats, outlandish clothes, and smoking my pipe.
