Get Grounded! "Z is for Zpiritual" is another in the series of Osho's Alphabet by Osho Rose. More solid self-help inspiration for spiritual seekers from Osho Rose who writes, "Zpiritual is a new word used to describe a zomewhat lop-zided way of living with a mystical disorder in which the zpiritual zeeker misses the entire point of one’s own journey with regard to money, matter, and material well-being." The author shares Enlightened Mystic Osho's strong views about the ugliness of poverty and how she is finding a way to balance her life through Osho's meditations.

And when you cannot do anything, at least you can sympathize; it costs nothing to be sympathetic. At least you can console; it is better than nothing. And all these words of Jesus and Mahatma Gandhi and others are devices to console, to give opium to people.”
