Despite the fact that many influential people support optimism, research reveals that realistic pessimism is also necessary to some extent. A realistic pessimist is an individual who understands that life is always uncertain. Besides this, he acknowledges the fact that human beings lack the power to accurately know what might happen in the future.
Realistic pessimism, therefore, allows one to realize that anything can happen on the journey of life. It also enables an individual to be mentally prepared for bad things hence reducing the impact that unfavorable life events could bring on his mental state.
It is the overly optimistic person who gets more depressed when something bad happens because he always believed that things will always work out as he wanted and he never put in consideration the fact that things can go either way in this unpredictable world. Besides this, it is also easy for an overly ambitious individual to quit during setbacks because he never prepared himself for unexpected events.
I am not suggesting that being optimistic is bad. Optimism is essential because it enables us to gain confidence in life, and it also motivates us to work hard. However, what I want you to understand is that you must always give room for pessimism. Be optimistic but always realize that not everything occurs according to our plans. Things can go either way. Having this understanding allows you to take precautions and it also makes you ready to face any obstacle that you might encounter.
However, some people use pessimism as an excuse for laziness. They say that they have no control over their lives because anything can happen. Therefore, they don’t see the need for working hard because bad things will still happen. This is a wrong way of applying pessimism to one’s life. A person who adopts this mentality is naturally lazy and never wants to work hard to create a better future.
It is true that the world’s events are uncertain but what is certain is that hard work, persistence, perseverance, determination, self-confidence, and self-discipline guarantee prosperity because no obstacle can overcome the person with these qualities.
Anyway, do not worry when you become pessimistic because it’s your mind’s way of telling you that you lack the power to accurately predict the future. The only future you can predict with accuracy is the past. Lastly, always realize that you live in a world full of uncertainties, and therefore, anything can happen. Prepare yourself mentally for any obstacles, but have faith that everything will work out in your favour.

Discussing Osho’s Concept: ‘Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness.’
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 introduces astrology by claiming that its fundamental laws originated from India since astrological calculations require mathematics which uses digits that were invented in 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 disasters that strike the world. Chijevsky, a Soviet Scientist, gained interest in this idea, and after studying it he realized that nuclear blasts that occur on the sun (the biggest star) cause wars on our planet.
It’s hard to either accept or reject this idea because it’s also hard to either prove or disapprove it. However, the idea might be true because everything in the universe is connected, and maybe this connectedness is what causes the changes in the solar system to 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 all your life, 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 greatly 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, and many studies have shown that various phases of the moon affect insanity levels. Many ancient societies also believed that 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 makes some people turn 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. We also have this intuitive source that most of us can’t access because we rely so much on our intellect.
I firmly agree with Osho because studying history made me realize that all animals including humans are intuitive but we humans, lost our intuitive abilities because the modern society became so 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
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 that ignorance and lack of knowledge about this idea are what makes us believe that the future is uncertain.
I don’t know what opening the window of the present moment means, and therefore, I ask for your assistance in determining what Osho meant.
“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
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 the open-minded people can become wiser. Therefore, never dismiss any piece of information just because it appears delusional.
Remember, the universe is miraculous, and 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 is your connection with the universal wisdom.
Thanks for reading. love ya
