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.
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

Three Amazing Factors That Prove God is Highly Interested in the Continuation of All Living Things
N/B – In the article, I use the terms, ‘God’ and ‘him’ to refer to The Creator/Infinite Intelligence/The Universe/The Source of All Things.
While meditating on the relationship between God and the physical world, it dawned on me that God is highly interested in all living things and ‘he’ can’t live without them.
He thus programmed living things in the following ways to ensure their continuity.
He programmed most living things to:
Many living things, including us, are programmed to fear death. For this reason, we run for our lives when we face death although we don’t know what will happen after we die.
Everything could have gone extinct if all creatures never feared death. The Creator thus ensured most creatures survive by making them fear death, and avoid it when possible.
The Creator could have designed sex to be the most boring thing on earth. After all, he can do anything. However, he made sex a pleasurable activity to make many living things want to engage in it. Besides, he designed the sexual urge to be so irresistible to many creatures that some kill each other and risk injury for sex.
Sex is unavoidable, and individuals who abstain for long periods suffer from cardiovascular diseases, stress, and a weak immune system. Some creatures, for instance, dogs become very aggressive if you deny them their right to mate. Besides this, even if you try to abstain, the sexual urge will make you desire sex. This urge wants you to preserve the human species.
If God could not have designed sex to be irresistible, all living things could have abstained from it, and the abstinence would have led to their extinction. For this reason, sex was meant to ensure the continuation of all living things.
3.To Be Harsh With Their Young
Many creatures are designed to fiercely protect their young. The Creator programmed animals to be protective with their young to ensure the continuation of all species. Many creatures would have gone extinct if their parents never protected them fiercely.
With this in mind, it’s clear that God treasures our survival so much that he doesn’t allow extinction. He could have allowed the extinction of all living things to happen a long time ago if he wanted, but he avoids doing so because he treasures the physical world. Maybe he can’t survive without us because he deeply loves us or he is us.
What’s your opinion on this topic? Why do you think God is highly interested in the continuation of all living things?

The Top 6 Major Ways Modern Society is Killing Creativity
All human beings are highly creative. Infinite Intelligence blessed us with a powerful mind that can create beautiful art, and solve all our problems. However, despite having a powerful mind, most individuals are not creative because the modern society is killing creativity by:
1.Promoting the Myth of the Starving Artist
Modern society loves promoting the idea that creative people especially writers, painters, and musicians earn low incomes. For this reason, there are many memes on the internet that show how artists are struggling to make ends meet. The idea of the starving artist has killed creativity since it prevents people from pursuing artistic careers. Besides, it has resulted in parents not enrolling children in art classes hence killing their children’s creative abilities at an early age.
The modern society encourages everybody to attend school without knowing its disastrous effects on creativity. School promotes the idea of ‘one right answer,’ which kills creativity by preventing students from thinking outside the box. Moreover, school kills creativity by promoting logic and rationality.
3.Promoting the Ego
‘Creativity is a matter of receptiveness and recognition. This cannot happen if you’re convinced that the world revolves around you.’ – Ryan Holiday, Ego is the Enemy
Today, most TV shows, movies, and songs promote the ego by making us obsessed with feelings of self-importance. These feelings make artists obsessed with pursuing glory instead of concentrating on improving their creative skills. Besides, the feelings make us too proud to be willing to learn from others even though learning boosts creativity.
4.Promoting the ‘Busy Myth’
Today, many people believe busyness is a sign of seriousness and future success. For this reason, most of us act or keep ourselves busy without realizing that busyness kills creativity as it leads to mental fatigue, and results in us lacking the time for mental relaxation practices such as, the art of doing nothing and meditation, which are essential for creativity.
Although internet technology boosts creativity because it increases access to information, it has also limited creativity as it makes people to look for solutions from websites instead of formulating their own solutions. Moreover, it has resulted in information overload, which hinders creativity by causing mental overload. Besides the internet technology, most types of technology limit creativity because they occupy our time and prevent us from performing creative activities such as reading, painting, writing, and singing.
6.Encouraging People to Focus on Money
Money is good because it increases our comfort levels. However, focusing too much on it forces us to work in jobs we hate hence killing our creative abilities. It’s impossible to be creative when working in a job we hate because creativity requires passion and inspiration.
The above, and many other factors that modern society promotes explain why modern people are becoming less creative. We thus have to discourage them and embrace the factors that improve creativity because our future depends on creativity.
