Six Powerful Spiritual Teachings From Osho’s Book:God’s Got A Thing About You

Published

on

Osho’s Book, God’s Got A Thing About You, is a dialogue between a master and his disciple. The disciple asks his master many spiritual questions which the master answers wisely.

The master’s answers contain wonderful spiritual teachings about God, the ego, anxiety, dealing with negativity, and so on. The book is enlightening, and reading it will enable you to realize many secrets to spiritual enlightenment.

Here are 6 wonderful teachings from the Book

1.Our World Brightens When We Discover Our Light

Everything in the universe is made of light because matter is condensed light. Osho teaches that our world brightens when we discover this light because we will start perceiving everything, including hardships, as a good and necessary part of our existence.

2.Work On Your Inner Self and External Conditions Will Work In Your Favour

Never become too concerned with external conditions because you don’t possess the power to completely change them. Instead, put all your energy in the inner journey, and what you want will come to you.

As Jesus puts it, ‘seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be given unto you.’ When asked where the kingdom of God is, Jesus said, ‘it is within you.’ Jesus also knew that working on your inner self will heal your external conditions.

3.How to deal with negative thoughts

The best way to deal with negative thoughts is to watch them and allow yourself to feel negative. Besides this, never worry or identify with them because doing so intensifies them. Realize that these thoughts have nothing to do with you, and you will be peaceful.

4.Self-acceptance leads to creativity

Self-acceptance makes you thankful and glad to be alive, and creativity naturally arises from gratitude and gladness. Besides this, self-acceptance results in good mental health hence increasing your creative abilities. For this reason, we should practice self-acceptance by loving everything about ourselves.

5.Negativity Is a Sign of Growth

A negative state of mind proves that you are growing. If you are constantly positive, and you have nothing to worry about, then you are not growing.

Everyone that grows must face obstacles hence leading to negativity. Even rivers have to pass around mountains and rocks before they reach the ocean.

6.All people are just like you

If you keenly observe your family, friends, and neighbors, you will realize that everybody is just like you. Everybody has problems, everybody is anxious, and everybody is afraid of taking risks. For this reason, there is nothing abnormal about your fears, doubts, and anxieties because everybody is experiencing them.

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Kabbalah was a school of thought – in Jewish mysticism – that wanted its members to achieve oneness with the Creator. As well, it encouraged members to discover their full potential and live a fulfilling life. However, it was hidden from the public, and only a few individuals understood its teachings.

For this reason, great authors, for example, Shimon Halevi, have tried to simplify the Kabbalah so that we understand its secret esoteric teachings. In his book, The Way to Kabbalah, Shimon explains the Kabbalah’s teachings in a simple way.

Although the book has several teachings, I loved the teachings about the vegetable man, the animal man, and the natural man, and something forced me to share them with you.

The vegetable man, as Shimon puts it, ‘is any individual that aims at living a secure and regular life with minimal disturbance from outer and inner worlds.’ He dwells at the vegetable level of existence since he is mainly concerned with excreting, reproducing, eating, resting, and breathing. This man chooses the safest path and avoids risky paths because he yearns for security. For this reason, he will die in the city he was born, and he will adhere to his parents’ life plan.

On the other hand, the animal man is an evolved being. He has strong willpower and loves shaking the world with amazing discoveries. Just like an animal that wants something, the animal man will ignore pain so that he achieves his objectives. Moreover, he possesses high levels of perseverance and determination, and as Shimon writes, ‘he has an objective beyond comfort and pleasure.’  This man creates empires and uses his dreams to change the world.

Both the animal and vegetable man have big dreams. The main difference between them is that the animal man fights for his dreams, while the vegetable man chooses security over going through the risky and competitive path of dream chasing.

The natural man possesses the powers of the animal and the vegetable man. He is a powerful being, for he has power over both living and non-living things. Shimon refers to him as ‘The Spearhead of organic life.’ This man knows that he creates his own reality, and understands that the Spirit of God dwelleth in him.

Human beings are destined to be natural men. We were created to rule the earth and gain dominion over everything. Also, we were put here to develop our spiritual, physical, and mental powers to their full potential so that we become gods on this planet.

However, most people act like vegetable men. Although they want to develop into animal and natural men, they are afraid of the narrow path that leads to these states of being. They thus prefer a normal and less risky life. Eventually, they die wishing they worked on evolving into the animal and natural man because they realize that a normal life is a boring and an unfulfilling life.

PEACE BE WITH YOU

The Secret History of the Illuminati

The Secret History of the Illuminati

‘It should be understood that the doctrines and philosophies expounded by the Illuminati predate it by millennia. These traditions and beliefs can be traced back through the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Knights Templars, Mystery Schools of Greece and Egypt, to ancient Sumer and their accounts of the possibly extraterrestrial Annunaki (Jim Marr; Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Recently, I posted a book review of Jim Marr’s book: Illuminati; The Secret Society that Hijacked the World. Today, I’ll share with you Jim Marr’s amazing thoughts on the history of the Illuminati.

According to Jim Marr, the Illuminati stole its secret knowledge from ancient secret societies. These secret societies stole this secret knowledge from an advanced ancient civilization known as Sumer, which received the knowledge from extraterrestrial beings known as The Annunaki.

These secret societies were not evil associations. They all believed in God, and they claimed to understand the hidden mysteries of the world. Besides, they referred to themselves as ‘The Chosen Ones’ since they believed they were the keepers of hidden spiritual knowledge. However, they hated the church because they believed they didn’t need anyone to interpret the word of God for them.

These secret societies led to the founding of the Illuminati in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, a student of ancient knowledge, and an admirer of ancient secret societies. Weishaupt formed the Illuminati because he wanted to use it to promote justice and equality.

He then focused on recruiting the youth: particularly professionals and individuals from wealthy families.

Later, the Illuminati attracted the interest of high-level society members – such as scientists, authors, bankers, politicians, and philosophers- who then changed its goals and used it to establish control over the masses. The Illuminati was then banned in 1785, and Adam Weishaupt was forced into exile. However, despite being banned, the Illuminati continued existing under different forms and names.

Today, it controls the world’s political, economic, religious, and social affairs. Some whistleblowers claim that the Illuminati is engineering diseases and creating wars to reduce the world’s population. On top of that, several conspiracy theorists believe the Illuminati is currently conducting moon landings and secret space flights.

Anyway, some people believe famous musicians, politicians, writers, and investors are the primary members of The Illuminati, while others claim that the main members are extraterrestrials who also rule other planets.

It’s difficult to know who exactly the Illuminati is, and its specific aims. However, what we surely know is that A RULING CLASS that controls the masses exists, for as Albert Einstein wrote, ‘the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them (Jim Marr, The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Peace Be With You
