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

The Hidden God
I use the word ‘he’ to refer to God because it’s the most common term used to refer to the Creator. Forgive me for that.
If there is a Creator-God, it has used methods of creation that are indistinguishable from nature; it has declined to make itself known for all of recorded history, it doesn’t intervene in affairs on earth, and has made itself impossible to observe.’ – David McFee
According to the theory of the Hidden God, God created the world and the laws that govern it and avoids involving himself in its daily operation. This theory claims that God got tired of involving himself with the physical world, and he let the laws he created to govern it. For this reason, he never involves himself in the affairs of man and the processes of nature.
Individuals who believe in this theory believe praying to God is useless because God never takes part in our affairs. However, they believe God created smaller gods that can answer our prayers because they participate in our affairs and the processes of nature.
Although God is unknowable, I believe this theory is worth analyzing because it makes sense. For instance, it explains why our prayers are seldom answered and why some ancient cultures never prayed directly to God. Many ancient cultures, especially Africans, prayed to ancestors and spirit guides because they believed these entities were more accessible and could take part in their affairs.
Moreover, this theory explains why God never helps righteous people during earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, and other natural disasters despite his ability to help them. As well, it explains why sometimes, righteous individuals are killed by predators, terrorists, and criminals despite living a prayerful and virtuous life.
If God was what Christians and Muslims teach us, these things would never happen to righteous people because, according to these religions, God loves the righteous, and he always protects them. Moreover, if God took part in our affairs as most religions claim, he could have answered most of our prayers.
Therefore, the theory of the hidden god is more reliable than religious theories because it enables people to embrace the world the way it is. On top of that, it enlightens us that we must work on creating the experiences we want instead of relying on God to work on our behalf.
In conclusion, although I agree that God is unknowable, I surely know that it’s impossible for the Creator to separate itself from Creation because Creation can’t survive without the Creator. For this reason, I can’t fully accept the hidden God theory. However, I love it because it enlightens people that it’s their responsibility- and not God’s – to create the life they want.

An Atheist is a Big Fool
‘The wonders and balance of nature and the marvelous physics of flight present the truths of our Creator in ways simply too overwhelming to discount.’ – Robert Firth, Atheists Are Idiots
An atheist is a fool because he lacks judgment and prudence.
According to an atheist, the universe appeared from nothing. Despite the atheist’s self-proclaimed intelligence, he believes the fine-tuning necessary for life to exist occurred by chance.
The atheist is too foolish to realize that the sun is placed in a perfect position so that we survive, and he overlooks the many natural ecosystems, in which everything miraculously interacts together as a unit.
Moreover, he believes the design that enables different animals and plants to survive occurred by chance. To him, the gills that enable fish to breathe in water, the wings that enable birds to fly, and the roots that enable plants to absorb water were accidentally designed by blind forces. As well, to the atheist, our body organs – that perform particular functions that enable us to survive – appeared from nowhere.
I’ll never waste my time arguing with an atheist because everything in the physical world clearly indicates the existence of an intelligent designer. The seasons, weather patterns, and every living thing indicate the existence of a designer.
‘We humans, as Albert Einstein writes, are in the position of a little child entering a huge library, whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different languages. The child knows that someone must have written those books….It notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order.’
Sensible people – like the child – know that an intelligent force is behind any form of orderliness. However, despite seeing a mysterious order and arrangement on our planet, the atheist insists that this world appeared by chance.
For this reason, never waste time trying to enlighten an atheist because his foolishness is beyond measure. I refer to it as ‘Infinite Foolishness.’ The atheist is too foolish to realize that everything has a design and design can’t exist without a designer.
If you are an atheist reading this post, do me one favor. Go to a mental hospital and receive treatment as soon as possible because your foolishness is turning into madness. Maybe you have an untreated mental condition because any sensible individual that carefully analyzes the celestial bodies and life will definitely come to the conclusion that something brought the universe into existence.
