The God Conspiracy exposes as a first step the history-old conspiracy of the politician and the priest against humanity, joy, pleasure, comfort and luxury. The politician would touch the feet of the priest and the priest enforced a certain kind of society on people ndash; all in the name of God. Osho makes a strong point that the discussion about belief or disbelief in god is a dead end in itself. Not believing, but only experiencing is a way of finding truth and meaning. While Friedrich Nietzsche's declaration that "God is Dead, therefore man is free" has been an incredible step in understanding ndash; it is in itself a negative solution and does not bring freedom. Simply removing God is not enough to achieve freedom. The atheistic philosophy of Communism has shown the endless abyss of meaninglessness ndash; a vacuum that will be again and again filled with false meaning. Osho offers something of which Nietzsche was unaware ndash; meditation ndash; a direct connection with existence itself. Zen and meditation allow us to find meaning and significance, creativity, receptivity and a path to freedom. Zen has no God, but it has a tremendous science to transform our consciousness, to bring so much awareness that it is impossible to commit evil. But it is not imposed through commandments; it comes rather from our innermost being and understanding. Reading this book will be a transforming experience, making you aware of the incredible responsibility we have as human beings for ourselves and our environment of which we are part ndash; here ndash; and now.
