Freedom, just another word for nothing left to loose?

The Osho vision of the whole man is of one who is at home in both the material and the spiritual worlds. The most revolutionary aspect of this proposal is "Zorba the Buddha."
The approach here is to create an environment where people can be whole ― where they can enjoy being centered with their feet firmly on the ground, yet can also touch the stars.
"My whole effort is to bring Zorba and Buddha closer and closer ― so close that both can exist in one human being without any contradiction, as complementaries, helping each other, not fighting with each other.
"My concept of the new man is that he will be Zorba the Greek, and he will also be Gautama the Buddha: Zorba the Buddha. He will be sensuous and spiritual, physical, utterly physical, in the body, in the senses, enjoying the body and all that the body makes possible, and still a great consciousness, a great witnessing will be there."
"And remember, if I have to choose between the two, I will choose Zorba, not Buddha...because the Zorba can always become the Buddha, but the Buddha becomes confined to his holiness. He cannot go to the disco and become the Zorba. And to me, freedom is the highest value; there is nothing greater, more precious, than freedom."
