Osho - Spiritual People are Spiritless
Osho had a spiritual community. But then he was very critical about spiritual people as well. Not that he did not love them but he spoke the truth whenever he went, he spoke the truth, regardless of how it was going to affect him.

When someone asked him the question, "why are spiritual people poor?", He said, "the answer is very simple". Because they are spiritual people. They are not material people. That's why they are poor. The material people are not poor. The material people are not poor because they care for matter. The spiritual people only care for the spirit. In the spirit doesn't have any matter in it.

Spiritual people are really the spiritless people.

And it is true, because they space out, they don't have any motivation in life. So that makes one think about the characteristics of spiritual people in general. They are indeed "spiritless" in the sense that they have no motivation because they are resigned to whatever is happening and they are not after becoming rich or becoming more comfortable in the material world.

So in that sense they are spiritless people. There is another way of looking at it. The spirit is not all that bad. Spirit is being very powerful. Being spiritual does not necessarily mean that you should be poor.

A true spiritual person, in my opinion, is someone who has developed omniscience and omnipotence if not omnipresence as well.

A spiritual person should be more successful than a material person. And that's what has to happen.

Now look at Patanjali's Yoga Sutras which I have been teaching recently in the United States. There is a section called "Supernormal Powers": how you can acquire supernormal powers. And he teaches a special meditation called samyama which is a combination of different types of concentration which are called darana, dyana and samadhi. And when you combine these three, you can get into what is called samyama.

When Dharana, Dyan and Samadhi are practiced together, it is called Samyama. You can do a Samyama on wealth and get enough wealth that you want or enough knowledge that you want or enough understanding of somebody else's mind. All these supernormal powers are possible when you are a spiritual person.

So, to say that a spiritual person has to be poor need not necessarily be true. It can be the other way around because a spiritual person can really be a powerful and also a material person as well. This is what spiritual people have to understand.
