To live in ego is to live in hell

Written by
IN CONCLUSION...to live as an ego is to live in hell, a luxury that a rational person cannot afford Ozodi Thomas Osuji To live in the ego is literally to live in hell, a painful hell, a hell of one’s own making; no one else did this thing to one but one! It is one who sentenced one’s self to the prison of the ego. If one did it to one, the question is this: why don’t people understand that to live in the ego is to in jail and hell, why do they struggle to be in ego hell?…

A reinterpretation of crucifixion and resurrection

Written by
A REINTERPRETATION OF CRUCIFIXION AND RESURRECTION Ozodi Thomas Osuji DREAM November 15, 2017 4: 15 AM In this dream, in the presence of my father, Johnson, I agreed to take poison and die for the good of him and his family. I wanted to be sacrificed to the gods for the good of my father’s family. On my way to the place where I would be sacrificed I changed my mind and decided that I do not have to die for other people and felt angry at a god that requires people to be sacrificed to him before he does…
THE ILLUSION THAT SCIENTIFIC PSYCHOLOGY CAN MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY Ozodi Thomas Osuji During the nineteenth century Science as a methodological approach to phenomena became the dominant western epistemology. An idea is to be accepted only if it is observable, verifiable and preferably replicable in laboratories. Since much of religion is written in metaphors religious ideas could not be subjected to scientific verification. Thus, by the 1890s psychology came into being. Psychology aimed at accepting only those ideas about human nature, thinking and behavior that can be observed to be objective and are verifiable as true. Psychology began with Sigmund Freud's…
THE ILLUSIONS OF SEPARATION, INDIVIDUALITY, SPACE, TIME AND MATTER AND THE REALITY OF UNIFIED CONSCIOUSNESS Ozodi Thomas Osuji An illusion is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. Though illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people.[1] Illusions may occur with any of the human senses, but visual illusions (optical illusions) are the best-known and understood. The emphasis on visual illusions occurs because vision often dominates the other senses. For example, individuals watching a ventriloquist will perceive the voice is coming from the dummy since they are able to see…

The world is a matrix

Written by
THE WORLD IS A MATRIX MOVIE WRITTEN AND ENACTED BY THE SONS OF GOD Ozodi Thomas Osuji All the sons of God are one son of God (each of them contains all of them and contains God). When one of them decided to separate from God all of them decided to separate from God. They wrote a matrix mathematical equation and enacted it into a movie. For matrix equations in quantum mechanics see Werner Heisenberg, Max Born, Pascual Jordan and Neils Bohr. For wave equations in quantum physics see Emil Schrodinger. Both wave and matrix equations are saying the same…

Matter is an illusion says Doctor Fred Alan Wolf

Written by
MATTER IS AN ILLUSION SAYS DOCTOR FRED ALAN WOLF Ozodi Thomas Osuji This afternoon I watched some YouTube videos by Dr. Alan Wolf. Dr. Wolf was a professor of physics at the University of California, San Diego. He found metaphysics and dropped out of academia and began writing books infused by his understanding of quantum mechanics and spirituality. He has written numerous books including some on parallel universes. I have attended some of his lectures at Seattle, Washington (USA). In the YouTube that I watched he made the argument that matter is an illusion and that it seems to exist…

To be egoless is to be God

Written by
TO BE EGOLESS IS TO BE GOD Ozodi Thomas Osuji Consciousness, aka God and mind manifested in body; the configuration of body and life in space, time and matter makes it see itself as separated from other parts of consciousness (it came to the world to seem separated from itself and seem in many selves). In ego separated state individuated consciousness knows that forces in the environment could snuff out its body so it feels fear of harm and death; it feels anger at those it perceives to threaten its life and or big ego self; it feels sad at…
UNIVERSES EXIST AS DISGUISED LIGHT; LIGHT TRANSFORMING ITSELF INTO INFINITE FORMS TO EXPERIENCE ITSELF DIFFERENTLY; EACH TIME FORGETING THAT IT MADE THE UNIVERSE; IT THEN STUDIES AND UNDERSTANDS IT Ozodi Thomas Osuji All that exists is spiritual light; spiritual light transforms a particle of it to physical light and uses that physical light to do things (energy is used to work), such as invent matter, space and time and people's bodies. It has done these kinds of things for ever and ever, infinitely. In the present, that is, as far as we are concerned, light transformed itself to galaxies, stars,…
DID YOUR RELIGION TEACH YOU THAT EVERYTHING IS LIGHT? Ozodi Thomas Osuji Plants take light energy from the sun and mix it with water, which also is made from light, and use it to produce green vegetables; animals eat green vegetables; that is, animals eat the sun that plants had transformed to vegetables and use it to produce flesh (proteins), which are also the sun. Human beings eat vegetables and animals meaning that they eat stored light energy in vegetables and animals bodies. All that has taken place when people eat is the transference of light energy from the sun…
THE PURPOSE OF MEDITATION IS TO SHUT OUT THE EGOS WORLD SO THAT WE EXPERIENCE OTHER WORLDS What exactly is the purpose of meditation, what is the big deal made about it all about? Surely there is a reason why Orientals meditate? The purpose of meditation is to get rid of the ego so as to reach God. The ego, normal or grandiose is like a sword we use to keep out the penetration of other words into our awareness; the ego is a block to the awareness of other worlds; the ego is a veil covering other worlds. We…

Using love to heal personality disorders

Written by
THINK AND BEHAVE FROM LOVE AND YOU CHANGE YOUR PERSONALITY Ozodi Thomas Osuji Personality is learned. It is learned in childhood. People do not come into this world with a preexisting personality. What they come to the world with is something in them that can learn a personality. There is something in people; it is not definable. Let us call it spirit. That something is born in a human child. It takes the configuration of the child's inherited body and social experience, especially the child's family interactions as building blocks and uses them to learn how to behave so as…

We are God

Written by
Chinazor Onianwa: I did not go to Church this morning so as to stay home and write the below material for you. I hope that it may help you to understand that everything is God. We are all God. The problem is how to articulate that fact without making human beings proud. It is us, a part of God that wrote the mathematical equations that were acted out as our universe. Top notch physicists at Oxford and Cambridge universities are coming to the realization that a super brain wrote the equations that were translated into our universe; everything happened when…
ALL MENTAL DISORDERS ARE HEALED WHEN THE MIND IS RETURNED TO UNIFIED STATE, GOD Ozodi Thomas Osuji Contemporary psychiatry and psychotherapy, so far, has not healed any one of his or her mental disorders. These days' mentally sick folks are given medications. The assumption is that mental disorders were caused by chemical imbalances in the brains and these medications would rebalance the disordered neurochemicals. These medications appear able to manage the symptoms of mental disorders but do not cure them. Can mental disorders be healed? Mental disorders can be healed but to do so we first have to understand what…

What do you believe and act on?

Written by
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE AND ACT ON? Ozodi Thomas Osuji You must believe in what you do regardless of what other people say about it. You must live what you believe is true. (3) If you believe and act on your belief you are going to make it come into being for you. HERE ARE MY CORE BELIEFS; I ACT ON THEM; THEY GIVE ME PEACE I believe that the physical universe is a dream in our minds (in our consciousness); I believe that what I see happening in the world is not happening, in fact, except as in a…
Spiritual psychology heals because it returns our separated minds to our unified mind; in unified mind all our medical and mental disorders are healed. Inferiority feeling results when the mind is separated from other minds and from our whole mind; inferiority complex is healed when the separated mind is returned to the whole mind, aka God's mind. We feel complete in God and in that completeness have worth. We cannot have worth outside God. SEPARATION FROM GOD IS THE CAUSE OF INFERIORITY FEELING; RETURN TO GOD IS THE CURE FOR INFERIORITY FEELING; IT IS ONLY GOD THAT GIVES US WORTH…
WE SHOULD NOT FORGIVE EVIL BEHAVIORS BUT MUST CORRECT THEM Ozodi Thomas Osuji The Teaching of Jesus Christ in the New Testament part of the Bible clearly asks people to forgive one another their wrongs. This sounds good but is it good or is it mere sentimental claptrap, even a dangerous teaching? We know from human experience that forgiving people's wrongs does not make them engage in good behaviors. Therefore, we have to go beyond forgiving people and insist that they correct their behaviors. Jesus forgave those who crucified him two thousand years ago; we still have murderers in the…
From Ozodi Osuji's Daily Journal: INFERIOR FEELING WHITES MAKE EFFORTS TO SEEM SUPERIOR BY FEELING FALSELY SUPERIOR TO BLACK FOLKS Racism is rooted in inferior feeling white folks' efforts to seem falsely superior by feeling superior to black folks. All human beings, by mere fact of living in bodies that will die and rot, feel inferior. They seek a sense of worth and value. All human beings try to seem to have worth because they feel that they have no worth. What it means to be a human being is to feel inferior and seek superiority. Human civilization is predicated…
HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN STEPHEN PADDOCK'S PEOPLE KILLING AT LAS VEGAS? Ozodi Thomas Osuji On Sunday, October 1, 2017, a sixty four year old Caucasian, retired accountant who reportedly is a multimillionaire decided to go kill some people. He bought forty nine guns and loads of ammunition. He checked into a Hotel room (Mandalay) at Las Vegas, Nevada. There was a country music festival going on at the Hotel's outdoor grounds (attended by a reported 22, 000 country Music Fans). Mr. Stephen Paddock was on the 32nd floor of the hotel. He broke the windows of his room and began…
DID JESUS CHRIST PHYSICALLY RESURRECT FROM DEATH? Ozodi Thomas Osuji The story of Jesus Christ is that he was crucified on the Cross on a Friday afternoon and on Sunday morning resurrected from death (that is two days). We are told that on Sunday morning some of his female followers came to the sepulcher where he was buried and found the stone closing the entrance to it rolled away and his body was not there; that is, they found an empty tomb. Later on, Jesus showed his self to his apostles. This implies that he resurrected from physical death. Is…
Eze Paschal: AS LONG AS PEOPLE LIVE IN EGOS AND BODIES THEY WILL BE PRONE TO FEAR AND DEFENSIVENESS Ozodi Thomas Osuji Our conversation, yesterday, on the fact that the biblical Jesus was an ego and, as such, was prone to fear and anger got me thinking. In the bible whenever he heard that his enemies, Jews of various stripes, such as Pharisees and Sadducees, were looking for him, were trying to arrest him or attack him he disappeared; he went into hiding. When the coast is clear he reappeared and continued with his preaching. This behavior meant that he…
ON EARTH ALL WE CAN DO IS MANAGING OUR EGOS; WE CAN TRANSFORM OUR EGOS TO EGOS OF LOVE Ozodi Thomas Osuji The poor old ego has been flogged to death; people have written tons of literature about what an awful thing the ego is. Yet, as long as we remain in this world of space, time and matter we shall have separated ego selves, for the ego is the individual's adaptation to the universe of space, time and matter. Clearly, each separated self seeks its self-interests for its primary goal is to survive. It wishes for the survival of…

Is the pursuit of spirituality escape from reality?

Written by
Chinazor Onianwah: You might find this piece interesting; in fact, I wrote it this morning with you in mind. In my assessment, you are intensely religious and a just man but you also appreciate the stupidity of religion hence struggle to limit your behavior to what science can prove to be true. Your struggle is my struggle. Ozodiobi IS THE PURSUIT OF SPIRITUALITY ESCAPE FROM REALITY? Ozodi Thomas Osuji As I survey the human landscape and behold those who talk about religion and or spirituality, generally what I see are those who are not fully engaged with the world as…
From Ozodi Osuji's Daily Journal: WE SEE THE PAST WHEN WE LOOK WITH PHYSICAL LIGHT BUT SEE THE PRESENT WHEN WE LOOK WITH SPIRITUAL LIGHT We see the past if we look with physical light. Physical light travels at the speed of 186, 000 miles per second. At that speed we can see the moon (250, 000 miles away) in a little over a second, the sun in about nine minutes (that is how long it takes light to reach us from the sun, which is 93 million miles away...the sun we see now is how it was nine minutes…

The Real Self is Light

Written by
To Africans: If you talk to Africans you quickly find out that the philosophy they are operating under was propagated by their ancestors. Those ideas were conceived by people who had no idea of modern science. Clearly, Africans have to update their ideas of life and what life means to them. I am a philosopher. I have synthesized the philosophies of the West and East. From that effort I have posited what our real selves are. The below 25 pages essay is part of my efforts to understand the self. It is now time that we modernized Africans self-concepts and…

Why are artists prone to homosexuality?

Written by
In Igbo society it is generally believed that artists (writers, musicians, painters, sculptors, architects) tend to gravitate to homosexuality at a higher rate than ordinary human beings. One of my grandfather's relatives, Nwaogu Njoku, was a singer; she lived with another woman (whom she called my wife!). The belief that artists tend to gravitate to homosexuality more than the norm intrigued me and I wanted to understand why. My life is devoted to trying to understand why people do what they do. I think that, finally, I have found the answer. Male artists tend to be sensitive persons; they are…
