OSHO: The Fear of Intimacy …

Osho, a contemporary mystic speaks on virtually every aspect of human consciousness. In these talks, the human condition, whether the mind, the heart, love or awareness is exposed with humor and insight, as never before.

Here Osho responds to the question: Could you speak to me of my fear of intimacy?

“Everybody is afraid of intimacy. It is another thing whether you are aware of it or not. Intimacy means exposing yourself before a stranger. We are all strangers — nobody knows anybody. We are even strangers to ourselves, because we don’t know who we are.
Intimacy brings you close to a stranger. You have to drop all your defenses; only then, intimacy is possible. And the fear is that if you drop all your defenses, all your masks, who knows what the stranger is going to do with you?”

  1. Thank you, thank you!… Sooo true. It's easier to hear like this, and gives a courage to be more in touch with ourselves and risk at least sometimes. Though, the full video would be really great.
