"There are a thousand and one poisons, but nothing like idealism -- it is the most poisonous of all poisons. Of course, the most subtle: it kills you, but kills you in such a way that you never become aware of it. It kills you with a style. The ways of idealism are very cunning. Rarely a person becomes aware that he has been committing suicide through it. Once you become aware, you become religious.
Religion is not any ideology... " - Osho, first words of ch.1.
