Have you ever been told to just “think positive” and your problems will go away?
Or that to achieve your goals in life, all you have to do is visualize it with positive intent?
It’s a philosophy that’s been popular for decades thanks to books like How to win Friends and Influence People and Think and Grow Rich.
But is it really helping us live more meaningful and fulfilling lives? Not exactly.
In fact, according to Zen master and spiritual guru, Osho, it might just be one of the biggest “bullshit philosophies” there is.
Why “positive thinking” won’t help you out
When asked what he thinks of the “positive thinking” movement, Osho believes that it’s doing more harm than good. Why? Because it means we’re denying reality and being dishonest to ourselves.
