Discussing Osho’s Concept: ‘Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness.’

Published

on

Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness is a chapter in Osho’s book, The Hidden Mystery. I fell in love with this chapter because here, Osho provides deep insights into astrology.

I love astrology because it reminds me of the many mysterious things about the universe.

Anyway, in the chapter, Osho starts by claiming that the fundamental laws of Astrology originated from India. He then proceeds to provide the following enlightening ideas.

  • Human Beings Are Connected to The Stars

The Sumerians realized that human beings are related to the stars because the stars are responsible for the world’s disasters. Chijevsky, a Soviet Scientist, gained interest in this idea, and after studying it he realized that nuclear blasts, which occur on the sun, cause wars on our planet.

It’s hard to reject this idea because it’s difficult to disprove it. However, the idea might be true because everything in the universe is connected, and maybe this connectedness makes the changes in the solar system affect our planet.

  • A Human Being Becomes Sick When He Fails to Be In Tune With The Musical Harmony in The Solar System

There was a certain musical harmony in the solar system when you were born. This harmony affects your health, and living out of tune with it results in sickness.

I think this musical harmony is what we refer to as the Zodiac sign, and Osho believes that to be healthy, we must live in alignment with it.

  • The Moon Affects Us.

If the moon influences the water in the ocean, and the proportion of salt in the water in our bodies is similar to that of the salt in the ocean, how then can we firmly conclude that the moon does not affect us?

The moon affects human beings. Several studies reveal that various phases of the moon affect insanity levels. Besides this, many ancient societies believed the phases of the moon affected people’s behavior. The movies also try to indirectly tell you that the moon affects us. Have you watched in movies how the full moon turns some folks into werewolves? Just Open Your Eyes, and You Shall See.

  • All Animals (Including Humans) Have an Intuitive Source.

Many studies have confirmed that animals can sense climatic changes and impending disasters. Birds usually know when it’s about to snow, and some domestic animals know when it’s about to rain. In Japan, there is a bird which flies away 24 hours before an earthquake.

Osho believes we also have this intuitive source but most of us can’t access it because we over-rely on our intellect.

I firmly agree with Osho because studying history made me realize that all animals, including us, are intuitive. However,  we lost our intuitive abilities because modern society became obsessed with intellectual advancement. We focus on analyzing, researching, and critical thinking instead of depending on our gut feeling to understand the universe.

  • The Future is not Uncertain

“Astrology declares that if by divine grace we can come to know the whole, then the future as such will not exist. But because we do not know the whole – we know only a small fragment – what we don’t know becomes the future.” – Osho

According to Osho, the future exists in the present, and so, we can know our future if we ‘open the window of the present moment.’ Osho believes ignorance and lack of knowledge about this idea make us believe the future is uncertain.

Conclusion

Hope you enjoyed today’s article.

Anyway, before I write ‘thanks for reading’ I would love to provide you with a nugget of wisdom.  Recently, I realized that only open-minded people become wiser, and for this reason, we must avoid ignoring information that seems delusional.

Remember, the universe is miraculous because there are many delusional things about it. And for you to understand the universe you must welcome any piece of information and use your gut feeling to assess its validity. Your gut always knows the truth. It’s your connection to Infinite Intelligence.

Thanks for reading. love ya

How We’ve Let God Down

Published

How We've Let God Down

God created us with the ability to self-reflect. We are the only creatures that can meditate on the infinite miracles that enable us to thrive on this planet.

However, instead of doing that, we constantly worry and stress over non-sense. We create a superficial reality that continuously stresses us for no reason.

As well, we never pause and appreciate the magical present moment and the mysteries of the universe because we are always anxious about useless things. We are addicted to worrying about our social status, and we love spending our time comparing ourselves to others.

Besides, we never meditate on the fact that we are magnificent beings that carry the spirit of God within us, and we seldom take time to smell flowers, watch the sun, the birds, and do other things that remind us of the existence of a magnificent spirit whose primary duty is to ensure that all creatures thrive on planet earth. In other words, most of us have lost the sense of wonder since we never look at God’s creation in awe and take time to appreciate it.

Moreover, we’ve let ourselves become slaves of a system created by tyrants whose only aim is to gain by overexploiting us. Instead of trying to get out of this system by employing ourselves and striving for enlightenment, we’ve let the tyrants govern our minds.

Besides, instead of fighting for the survival of planet earth, we’ve let these tyrants destroy the planet’s natural resources. Our forests are dying, many animals are becoming extinct, our air and water are getting polluted, but we don’t care because we are busy chasing paper, forgetting that money is useless without air, water, and other natural resources.

We’ve also descended into the egoic-consciousness, which makes us perceive ourselves as separate individuals whose main duty is to strive to be richer than others. For this reason, instead of loving each other unconditionally, we continuously judge each other and allow thoughts of envy, malice, and hate to dwell in our minds.

On top of that, we’ve forgotten that human beings are greater than the gods (spiritual entities, e.g angels, elementals, ghosts, etc) because we can attain both the human and god-consciousness. The gods can only attain the God-consciousness since attaining human consciousness is impossible to them.  However, we can transcend our human-consciousness by ascending to God-consciousness through spiritual growth, but we are unaware of this blessing because we’ve ignored the spiritual teachings handed down to us by the ancient masters.

Anyway, I don’t think God created us to live this way. I believe the factors that modern society promotes are responsible for this lifestyle that disappoints our Creator. We must thus rise above the modern illusory perception of life and strive to live the way we were designed to live because if we do so, we’ll live a life that delights our Lord God the Creator.

PEACE BE WITH YOU

Modern Society and the Illusion of a Perfect Life

Modern Society and the Illusion of a Perfect Life

‘Man’s relentless pursuit of perfection in its countless different guises is the greatest cause of unhappiness in the world. Man mostly postpones his pleasures in life, suspends it until such time as he has the perfect career, the perfect home, or the perfect bank balance.’ – Theun Mares, Return of the Warriors

The media has overly promoted the illusion of a perfect life since it portrays celebrities as individuals with beautiful spouses, families, cars, and houses. As well, most social media users only post the good part of their lives hence making us believe in the illusion of a perfect life.

This illusion has resulted in us postponing happiness since we believe we’ll only be happy when we get a perfect relationship, body, house, job, etc. It makes us fail to appreciate our possessions and relationships because we feel they aren’t perfect. In other words, this illusion results in us failing to appreciate the gift of life as it makes us stress over the imperfect parts of our lives.

Moreover, the illusion of a perfect life makes us feel shameful when facing difficulties hence resulting in us hiding our difficulties. For this reason, we avoid asking for support during difficulties, and we try to deal with them alone hence intensifying their mental side-effects.

As well, the idea of a perfect life has intensified the fear of failure within us because it leads to the belief that failure is a sign of imperfection. We thus avoid chasing our dreams or pursuing anything that can lead to failure because we don’t want to be associated with failure.

Furthermore, believing in the possibility of a perfect life has led to feelings of inadequacy. We feel we aren’t enough, and we believe we are not important because we don’t have a perfect life.

Little do we know that no one lives a perfect life since everybody experiences hardships and tragedies. Besides, we are unaware that rich people, celebrities, and many other people we believe are living a perfect life usually have several aspects of their lives that are imperfect. Some of these folks have committed suicide because they still felt their life was imperfect despite achieving all their goals.

For this reason, I believe anybody who doesn’t find his life perfect today, will never find it perfect in the future, no matter what she achieves because there will always be a segment of her life that will be imperfect. I, therefore, think we should start appreciating our lives and realize that life is perfect the way it is.

Also, we should know that the imperfect parts of our lives are important because they stimulate personal development, and we must awaken to the fact that most of us will never see the need for working hard or improving our lives if everything was perfect.

Lastly, we should discard the illusion of perfection and realize that everything in our life, whether perfect or not, presents an opportunity for progress.

END.
