The paradox of awareness is very profound and yet very simple. It can't be described because it has no objective qualities and no limitation. Sometimes it comes naturally to the surface when we are fully in the present moment and no longer lost in thought or mental projections. Pure consciousness is neither high nor low, neither pleasant nor unpleasant, neither good nor bad. No matter where we are, no matter what we are doing, we always have an immediate access to that inner stillness. It can be experienced in an instant in all circumstances once we know how to pay attention to it. It is utterly peaceful and it is also insightful, so it sees through all illusions. Whenever there is a moment of being deluded, we can use that moment to practice settling in the very perfect sphere of the Buddha mind without trying to change anything. When we reside in that liberated mind, we find the very thing we have been seeking all along.
In a book aimed at Western audiences, the author uses humor and anecdotes to explain the nature of enlightenment, especially the notion that enlightenment is closer to ordinary life that the layman may think. Original.
So much of the experience of everyday life is shaped by religious and social conditioning. We are constantly pulled away from the unique nature that is our birthright and into a false self called the "ego," which eventually gains control of our ideas, our relationships, and the very experience of who we are. At the same time, the collection of egos known as "society" shapes our political, educational, and religious institutions, forcing the same old patterns onto new generations. In this book, Osho shows how to discard these old patterns in favor of a new and nurturing trinity of watchfulness, awareness, and alertness.
So much of the experience of everyday life, says Osho in this insightful guide, is shaped by religious and social conditioning — and we are not even aware of the fact. We are constantly being pulled away from the unique nature that is our birthright. In place of that original and unique self, a false self called the “ego” is constructed that eventually gains control of our creativity, our ideas about what it means to be successful, our relationships, and our very experience of who we are. At the same time, he argues, the collection of egos known as “society” shapes our political, educational, and religious institutions, which in turn combine to force the same old patterns onto new generations. In this book, Osho shows how to discard these old patterns in favor of a new and nurturing trinity of watchfulness, awareness, and alertness. The bundled DVD lets readers directly experience the insights of this important modern mystic.
We can realize the highest truth in each moment when we learn to see through the illusion of the self.

This theory highlights the way our thoughts, words, and actions, which are based on our beliefs, create our reality within a greater collective reality.
