Unity Coming From The Depth Of The Ages

275Comment: One common spiritual method is the so-called “Osho teaching.” Like Kabbalah, it speaks about unity and about the perception of the universe as a single whole.

My Response: A great number of people talk about unity. Nowadays physicists and even economists say that everything is interconnected. Russian geologist Vladimir Vernadsky (1863-1945) developed the theory of the noosphere. In principle unity is an ancient concept that existed before Kabbalah.

Kabbalah is only four and a half thousand years old. It originated in ancient Babylon. However, even before that, people believed that everything in nature is interconnected. On the one hand they worshipped the sun, the moon, the stars and various forces of nature, and on the other hand they still believed that there was something that unites them.

The medieval scientist and scholar Rambam wrote that at first all people believed in the existence of one single force. Then they saw that all sorts of phenomena occur in nature, as if under the influence of different forces: the moon, the sun, wind, water, and so on. They realized that the one single force hidden from them manifested itself through various private forces, and they began to worship them because they saw an obvious image. Thus, polytheism appeared.

Initially monotheism prevailed, a single upper force. Even when people began to worship its various manifestations, they realized they were worshipping angels, that is, representatives of one upper force.

Therefore, the unity that Osho or other methods speak about is a very ancient postulate.
