HAVE YOU EVER LOVED SOMEONE YOU NEVER MET?


Have you ever loved someone you never met?

This might be a fascinating subject, isn’t it? Because the requirement seems that you need to meet the person before you love him or her.

The full truth is that regardless our circumstances or environment, there are people around the world with  whom we could connect,  at such a different level perhaps, –  that this would be in full harmony with both the 2 natures involved…True, – if the allowing of this feeling could be realised in a day-to-day reality, so to say… But for sure,  you can’t judge this before you have met, – and met for some time perhaps.

But often this is not the case as neither the allowing of the feeling is always there nor the real life situation where one can meet up with one another to build up bit by bit the friendship. The last being required the least, – as a first step.

Not to speak about people we never met, the last being an entirely different story…Falling in love as such seems not possible.  But perhaps not everyone agrees on this one.  And sure, –  stories are nice to share, isn’t it?..  Even when there is a lot of fiction and fantasy involved.

At times this can be quite funny!

But who cares, – we are free in that section of our mind and heart where we may have dreams, fantasies or imaginations, – whether we feed them or not.  But mind you, –  what you do with the “feeding” and “the bringing out “.  In 65 years from now we are all dust, – and the question is how did we live in between.  In our response lies the last choice.

Well, – I can say there is nothing secret or unusual about those feelings, as at times they are a reality. At some extent I feel it is part of human nature. The beauty that people can mean a lot to you, even if you don’t know them, even if you have never met them. And for sure you don’t need to be in love with them as the last is a different entity, – so to say. The fact that unknown people can mean a lot to you can be an enrichment of your own nature through the colours and the “keys” being transmitted to your own life.. And this is mainly the issue I want to touch base on, as falling in love with someone you never met is in my glimpse on this subject impossible.

What it is, I don’t know. What the power of love is, – I don’t know. Perhaps at times the impressions we get, even though they might be very limited, –  may appeal somehow to the better things in ourselves. Potential partners are anywhere on the world but it is pointless to pursue, unless there is a valid reason.

Does this make any sense at all?

If well-preserved it is one of the larger mysteries in life where the power gets broken if disclosed, or if disclosed too early where it should not be disclosed. It is an odd comparison perhaps, –  but the power of the biblical Samson got lost when his hair was cut, – but when his hair grew he was stronger than ever before. When we try to “establish” some of our past or present secrets in reality, – we cut ourselves and lose more than we ever possessed perhaps.  In search of the good, conscience is always a process.

Once Samson disclosed his secret he was lost. They took “the mickey” out of him.  In other words, it is not always wise to show what is going on in your heart as cherishing some of the larger secrets may enhance your humanity, –  because, through the transmission of energy you may be better able to translate those emotional pockets back to your higher inner-nature.  This is the domain which has “pure creativity” to work it all out in your own place, –  the last which is what life asks you to do with care, compassion and integrity.

What I say seems to be the ideal scenario, – I know.  It does not always work this way and people are different.  But for all of this, there is no harm in those feelings,  it depends what you do with it.

Image result for there is no harm in feelings of love

How does this happen?

Obviously I am not sure, but I suspect in the channelling of both our energy and awareness, we pick up at times both things from the physical world and the non-physical world. The reality part is not always that important but when we are lucky and channelling the right direction, through the grace of God, we may use it for the purpose being designed for both the better of our human nature and others.

Image result for through the grace of God we may love

In my “last will and testament” I can show I loved lots of people for those reasons in my life and I am full of gratitude what they meant to me and what they gave me during receptive moments in my being. Some people I knew, others I did not know. Some live in my lifetime, others did not live in my lifetime. But always there was the transmission of some mysterious energy, which for me appealed to my inner-nature and made what I became, – still a “work in progress”.

As I said, sometimes it is better not show the secrets of your heart, at least not on the specifics, allowing as such not the rejection and scrutiny of others. But “giving way” to the free flow of the unspeakable in the increased compassion of your nature, seems at times the better way. The last finding its means in various creative identities of your life.

Image result for Quote on sometimes it's better not disclose the secrets of your heart

Again, –  I need to ask whether this makes sense, as it may work different for others.

For sure this is more difficult when you are really in love with someone and it seems impossible. But within the larger gift of life you may see this as one of the dimensions which could exist in different identities elsewhere as well, – and you don’t need to be absorbed by one “dead end” as being in love, as such, is a reflection on yourself in one particular situation. Which is being allured to one particular attraction, as perceived in someone else. It simply is not reality. And the last has nothing to say about how it would work out in a real life situation. Mind you, you better be careful if you have those feelings at times because if you disclose this to the person of attraction, and you don’t know each other at all, – you will be considered, the least, as very silly, – and for sure it will fall on “deaf ears”..

Image result for Quote on sometimes it's better not disclose the secrets of your heart

If this is the case you need to get to know yourself a bit better and use common sense.

In the inter-connection with people in life though, there is – as well – much we may not understand. But the beauty is we don’t always need to understand as both the mystery and curiosity are allowed to have a place in life.

Image result for Quote on In the inter-connection with people in real life though, there is – as well - much we may not understand.

Things come to our awareness by what we see and hear in other people, and the last at times in retrospect, – when we have time for ourselves connecting with the broader sense and awareness of nature.

The way we may interconnect with each other in the very best possible way is more like “a sacred bonding” as it shows us how to forgive when we need to forgive. It shows us how to give to one another’s well-being. It shows us compassion and understanding.  It may show us affection of a different nature, when we see things not being right and try to correct it. It has to do with the better way of showing justice as well, –  in a broader sense.

Image result for Quote on The way we may interconnect with each other is a sacred bonding

In my life I cherish the people who brighten my day through the seen and the unseen, whether they live nearby or far away, regardless, at times, – whether I know them or don’t know them at all. It sounds weird perhaps and not many people may relate to me on this one but it’s just me, the way I embrace life as it is, – accepting both the possible and the impossible.  Many people as such leave an “echo” with me and some, – just this way , are very dear to me as there is much warmth in it,  without those people even realising this themselves. And that’s fine!..

Image result for Quote on Many people as such leave an “echo” with me and some, - just this way, are very dear to me as there is much warmth in it, without those people even realising this themselves.

At times they live in entirely different circumstances far away, amidst poverty, – and in the way they deal with things they “sparkle” as a mystery. Some people as such are unique in the integrity of their own nature, from which we only see part of it, – but enough to appreciate their inner-being which shines through this.  And we don’t know them at all, – interesting isn’t it?.

Image result for Quote on Some people as such are unique in the integrity of their own nature, from which we only see part of it, - but enough to appreciate their inner-being which shines through this. And we don’t know them at all, interesting isn’t it?.

If I would express this the way I wished to do at times, my gratitude would be very poorly understood. Mind you what their perception would be on me. I fear it would spoil it for once and for all, as we live in totally different identities.

I can only hope I work the same this way for some others perhaps as they do for me, and for sure, – I don’t always need to know,  as sometimes it is better to leave this to the funny and  precious secrets of life.

Discipline and direction in our connections are far more important.

Image result for Quote on Discipline and direction in our connections.

And mind you, allow your imagination to play similar as characters evolve in films, – like they do this in ourselves at times. The editing is part of a spontaneous process through the in-depth involvement we already have with ourselves and some others.  All this is already provided in our upbringing until now, and through the experiences we have and had. We get better persons when each time we surf the waves of our emotions the right way, – both for ourselves and for others. Not allowing us to be blind-folded in scenes which are not practical.

Image result for Quote on Not allowing us to be blind-folded in scenes which are not viable.

If you want to reach out for a better connection with others, be aware that the circumstances and perceptions of people can be hugely different than yours, and that improvisation as such is based on both respect and being receptive for what is going at the other side.

There might as well be the cultural restrictions of marriage, but the connections with others perhaps should not be restricted where we connect with the better part of ourselves in others. There where we can add value to each other as part of our normal humanity, the last finding its way in the world. There is neither harm in any value, nor is there any value in any harm.

Image result for Quote on There might as well be the cultural restrictions of marriage but the connections with others perhaps should not be restricted where we connect with the better part of ourselves in others

The last is an interesting one as where people cheat they are dishonest and being dishonest often brings harm. The question on the moral spectrum of what is harmful and not harmful has a variety of dimensions, including and not restricted to showing affection, being tender and kind, apart from embracing and kissing each other.

Image result for qote on cheating doesn't mean you have to kiss, meet or have sex

For myself I do consider any genuine and mutual show of affection being normal as part of close encounters where you trust each other.

Cheating is when you don’t watch the distinction between being loving in character and making love as part of a sexual relationship. The last in circumstances where it would be far better to refrain from this. For sure, as said already, – there are many potential partners on this world but it is pointless to pursue any if there is no valid reason, – as so much harm can be done as well.  Existing love for one can’t be replaced by a potential love for an other person, – even when we have the capacity to “bring it on”. Even though there are more scenario’s possible, – harm reduction is hard to meet if our conditioning is not wired up for the best compassion for others.  It is not an easy one for many, but wisdom for the few.

Image result for Matthew 16:26 What good will it be for someone to gain the ...

When you are really committed in friendship you simply don’t cheat. People carrying trust and trustworthiness close to their heart simply don’t cheat, as gifted – hopefully – in wisdom perhaps, they know that real love lasts far longer than making love, and that the last often ends the friendship in which perhaps much has been invested for possibly good reasons.

Image result for qote on cheating doesn't mean you have to kiss, meet or have sex

If people are married and it proved already it did not work and it has been discussed already open and candid, – there might be a grey area which is not up to me to consider,  as I haven’t this experience as such.

When we really care in authentic ways, neither being pretentious nor imposing our perceptions on others, – we may embrace the concept of love in unassuming ways wherever we go in this world. The last with the distinction that real love has far greater dimensions as it is an impression from the Universe, through which the earth and all what lives has been created, – not by chance but for a purpose.

Image result for Quote on together we can do great things

Our humanity may grow through the real humanity of others and with certain restrictions,  there are no rules or regulations for this purpose being still in progress, – which includes love in a broader sense.

In essence our humanity is deeply inter-connected. As always it is as important to be able to listen and to be listened to. It keeps you fresh and alive. If we are able to free up ourselves “in the osmosis of life”, we can find up a way in the connection with other people, more meaningful and in line with what humanity requires us to work on to get to the next stage.

In terms of film making – by comparison – we may end that the right actor for a particular role is perhaps not the very best actor. Likewise the right person in a relationship is perhaps not always the greatest partner, – and the right partner in a business entity is not always the best person.

And finally the best love affair is for certain not always the best friendship, – whilst the best friendship is not always the best love affair.

Image result for Quote on And finally the best love affair is for certain not always the best friendship, whilst the best friendship is not always the best love affair.

For all of this, surfing the soul on any implications is the best manifestation in inter-humane creativity, – as the better outcome is always harm reduction. Rather, perhaps, than self-destruction through inflicted trauma, betrayal, deception and others..

Good friendships last, – ”love-affairs” rarely last.

This is reality!

Therefore finding the right distinctions in the many dimensions of love, is an art worth to be mastered as it seems dead easy, – but it is easily dead as well.

Why?

The last because  relations can make you, – but they can break you as well.  And there is already enough being broken, both in life and relationships.

Image result for quote on a bad relationship makes you feel worse when you were single

With real friends you rehearse and rehearse until you get better as friends, – regardless time place or age.  And in all this you can find your own VOICE, – your unique identity as well..

The quality of our humanity is at the cornerstone of any good friendship or a better connection. Relationship means relating to each other,  and caring for each other, – and not being careless to one and other. It means healing wounds and not creating wounds.

Friendship is not about knowing everything from each other, but enough not to tell each other what he or she thinks, but providing him or her direction and help which way might be  the best way to go at times, – the last only if required, – the last at times if requested.

If you create the right stuff on which people may “turn on” in the best possible way, – for sure you are starting to be a good connection.  And all this is part of inter-connecting and trans-personal conversations, – perhaps.

It is not about who is most “like me” or “not most like me”, – it is more about “on what you resonate” as a person in others, – and often you don’t even need to give it a name.

Related image

The last as providing a label to a variety of identities in this world, not rarely takes away the mystery on which things could evolve. If you love friendship to be endless, show it endless, without labels or discussing the identity as such, – as not doing as such “frees up” as much.

Last but not least, the last applies to marriage as well where this identity works the way it is supposed to work, – but the last might be different in the variety of cultures. Like connections and friendship do function at different levels among the colours of the various cultures as well.

Interesting, – isn’t?

Feel free to say what you like to say on this subject.

Thank you so much!

Todá Rabá: For a transpersonal communication!


Small introduction 

It’s a different story this.  Entirely different from the earlier posts .

Hope you like this flavour in addition to the last post on parts of my personal history, – the dimensions this time are far different though…

Perhaps  the contents do trouble me a bit from time to time, as they reinforce somehow I may need to do more, – one way or another…

Having still  -at times- conflicting thoughts about all of this,  it is yet however food for thought for me. The last as this  has been lingering for some years, and not finding the right “outlet” – as yet ….

Generally applies  that it is good to use your mind to focus on what you want in life, to use your heart with similar focus on what you desire in life, – on the premise you don’t harm and bring good.. And on the premise that you are true to yourself. But the potential directions can be contradictory, and part of it is related with life itself, being enclosed by circumstances of various nature….

But anyhow, this will explain:

->>>>

She wrote to me from a different avenue,  a different spectrum of insight and feed-back. The last far away…

Actually from an Arizonan place nearby the  Grand Canyon’s in the US………. And for sure, I’m still grateful for the encounter we had, even though we never met in person.. She had a look at some of the articles in this blog and kindly provided an assessment of sorts……. An assessment based on what came to mind during an email contact which we enjoyed, as we both got a lot out of it..

Her opinion was at large Astrology based, but interesting as part of the mixture of tools she used….. However, within the context, I would call it more a transpersonal communication..

A vice versa interaction of humanity sorts.

Apart from an introduction – and a closure – there is – actually – nothing  to add, – besides the  self chosen illustrations. The last which I always like to do… And, for sure shortening  her missive, to keep it flowing,  – and simple as required.

In ideal  human conditions  we can reach our full potential with both imagination and love for what we are doing…  Those, often, who have a fair degree of fortuity in both circumstances and their personal approach, or place in life,  may reach  a  good deal in the uniqueness of their circumstances… We know, ………. the  last thing we can do is clenching  to our own response in both adversity and good fortune………  For most of us this is a mixed picture with different opportunities to all..

Jhinang Quotes

Different opportunities ……..The last , in the more positive,  is only possible if you have a strong desire and love for what you do…..and believe in what you want..At times, regardless the circumstances or the facts..At times ..this  requires much reflection, analysis, intuition and action..And  this process  ..is not always that straightforward or logical..And “science” often in those areas is unhelpful, a good intuition is..

Viktor Frankl

The question  is  whether you like it what you see – (or don’t see as yet), – whether you want it, – whether you allow the wanting and have the determination to follow through. The last with respect for any other human being  you will meet on this pathway…This is not always that easy or simple…

Whilst Astrology in good hands is an ancient art or craft, which  really evolved through the ages, – it has no scientific validity and there is a lot of prejudice against it.  However, –  as an instrument of mapping potentials in people,   man’s free choices find the outcomes!  The same applies  with  e.g  psychological test results. The last with  more  – “so-called” –  scientific validity…….  Scientific validity, however,  can change on the same subject, and is ….. not always the cornerstone and measure for progress in any area of life.

Regarding the standard of professions, – there are vocations  where one need to separate the chaff from the wheat more than in other professions… But like there are good politicians, dentists, opticians, teachers,  police officers,  and many others (we all know this), – there are genuine good astrologers as well. Like there are e.g  good doctors, there are less favourable doctors as well, and all for various reasons……There are psychologists  ( – I am aware as  well of one Psychiatrist in the US, Dr Judy Tsafir, – 11 km west of downtown Boston   www.JudyTsafrirMD.com – ) who use the art of Astrology as a way  to look at the wider spectrum  of options and behaviour in people (from a different angle)…  And only if they are well-trained in this ancient art, with the right attitude, they serve a purpose.  But at the end, .. it is the response from the person which counts, supported perhaps by the dimensions they know and don’t know. Supported by the seen and the unseen, believing in what they don’t see as yet, – and fulfilled eventually to see what they believe.

Nothing else, – – I  trust..

What was her “astrology verdict” (so to say) on myself?..Knowing both my restrictions,  my background and my environment, – the angels who keep the great record  may put to her credit that for certain she is a very genuine astrologist and centred in a good place (whatever else they have to say!).. …….However, being realistic,  and perhaps as due to the personal  communications  with this female astrologer, – I was possibly more lucky than others. The last as we both got a lot out of an affirmative  correlation, – which is not further disclosed here.  Hence toda raba to her. The Hebrew saying of thank you very much…  For sure,  she has been able to touch base on a few issues, but her observations are not complete… Certainly useful, but like  an acorn holds the pattern for an oak tree, – as a people, we are the masters of our own transformative and creative faculties, with both seen and unseen forces playing a role,…..  and finally the level of our human interactions assisting all this…. The last so important.. as Albert Schweitzer once noted…… important if we are prepared to discuss the  meaning and purpose in life as on ongoing process of direction and energy….

In general, the only certainty we have  is that everything can change, for better – or worse…  With this  notion on the seen and the unseen, …… the believe – for sure –  that little really can be lost in creation, ….. I hope myself neither to fear the worst,  – nor the most amazing…..

Part of her “transpersonal communication”:


“You look to do well in the creative arenas of life Paul. You are an artist at heart, but not everyone understands your style.

Related image

I see that you look to be restricted by fear in moving forward in finding your life’s greatest purpose. You will be finding meaning to what you will be doing as you progress through every stage of life.

Related image

You look to be going along relatively smoothly. I don’t see that you are off the path you are supposed to be on……. You are learning and expanding, this is really the main goal in enlightenment and finding your main purpose.

I see this as lasting at least the next 6-9 months before you will be able to move forward to a new destination. I see that you serve a purpose to teach others in this environment as well as learn from others that you are working with.

You can learn more and extend more on how to find salvation through love and positive energy….. This through really getting in touch with your inner self a bit more. You will meet this through introspective thought and the recognition of who you truly are and what you are truly thinking….. Remain positive in your thought processes and you will open yourself to receive more positive things happening in your life.

The main thing that I see in your chart at the moment, Paul, is your natal Saturn return. This is something that happens twice in your life, three times if you are lucky. Saturn’s orbit is about 29 years, so we hit the first return age 28 – 29, the second one 57 – 58, and the third one 86 – 87.

Billy Corgan

Saturn returns are quite profound. Saturn plays some key roles in the birth chart. For centuries, it was the most distant known planet–Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are very recent newcomers (and yes, I still consider Pluto a planet). Saturn urges us to watch where we’re going, pay attention to what we’re doing, and cautions us to be careful. When it returns to it’s natal place, it brings to us an awareness of what we might need to avoid.

      Carl Jung.

Saturn in Scorpio is all about control. This is why you are so involved in co-creating your destiny with your blog, Paul…  Saturn is a hard taskmaster, and for you, it is encouraging you to be more proactive about creating what you want from life. This is a time when you need to put your responsibilities to good use–and you are, trying to find a way to have the courage to embrace the impossible. If anything can bring that to you, it’s this second Saturn return, in Scorpio.

This is particularly prominent for you, Paul because Saturn is retrograde at the moment…. Where most people will feel their Saturn return for a year or so, you’re likely to feel this effect for three years or more, as Saturn made a pass over your natal Saturn, went backwards over it, and will soon go forward over it as the transiting Saturn makes its way out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius next month. You’ve been given three times to get things right, and lay the proper foundation for the next 30 years of your life. I’d say you’re doing a good job.

Regarding  what  your  “calling”  may  be  in  this  lifetime  towards humanity, I will pull up your birth chart.

There are many parts of a chart to look at that contribute to the overall calling or “destiny.” I see your Sun and Moon are trine, showing that you are an individual very much in touch with your innermost feelings, often wearing your beliefs and emotions on your sleeve. Your inner world reflects into your outer world, and very strongly. You are a mirror that reflects not only the outside world, but an inner light that is shining within you all the time. You are an Aries Sun, but with a Sagittarian Moon, making you prone to strong tangents into inner philosophies that you wish to share outwardly with others.

Interestingly, your North Node– the signifier of “karmic lessons” in this lifetime– is close to conjunct with your Sag Moon, passing on the meaning that there may be a higher purpose to your inner philosophies that you wish to spread to others. It may very well be that this penchant in you needs to find an outlet, and to be heard by people.

You may have some very important things to say on the past, and revolutionize a specific field with your knowledge and inspirations that you have to bring. It will have to deal with being progressive, moving forward towards a better state of humanity, but draw a lot from the deep well of our traditions and ancient customs of our past.

I would say your LinkedIn profile does show that you have a significant history and acumen in health care, Paul, and that does indeed go along the lines of your North Node placement and the ruler of the 10th House being in Cancer. In addition to the medical practice there is perhaps a bit more you could add, a dose of your philosophy or approach to things. With the planetary angles I noticed, your work as described by the 10th House would be an excellent outlet to spread a bit of your own personal philosophy that you are eager to share– whether that is your own personal views of the world, health, or whichever. Take your pick, follow your heart. I sense an urgency in you, perhaps to want to reshape or revolutionize a field in which you are expert. Perhaps a blend of our personal philosophy with your health care work would be prime suspect there.

Your Sun in Aries describes the way you express yourself outwardly, your pure essence.  Your Moon in Sagittarius describes your inner world, the one that only close friends and family sees. These two planets trine, Paul, …..making them strengthen and feed into one another.

Your inner world is rich, full of philosophies and a desire to explore the unknown, due to the Sag Moon (inner world); you wish to express that out to others, in a very forward and social way with your outer world.

It does seem like you are treading the path of your karmic destiny that has been set out for you, as what you describe fits pretty well with what your destiny shows in your chart. Politics could be another venue to pursue– but honestly, the healthcare field you are in strikes me as very apt to you.

Look out for people who you feel may have more to do with your karmic path. Also, people who mean what they say. In appraising people you wish to have in your company, … look more stronger to action than to words, and thus you can discern their intentions much clearer.

The main things that I see in your chart are the grand trines, Paul. You have four of them in your chart. There are two in water signs (Saturn / Venus / Jupiter, and Saturn / Venus / Uranus), and two in the fire signs (North Node / Mercury / Pluto, and North Node / Sun / Pluto). Grand trines bring you positive and beneficial energy to the areas of your chart where they reside, and yours are occupying the areas about personality, daily life, and the quest for knowledge (the water trines), and goals, income and partnerships (the fire trines).

The water grand trine will give you intuitive feelings about these areas of your life, Paul. The fire grand trine will make you goal-oriented and gregarious in these areas of your life. Of course, just having the grand trine isn’t enough to guarantee success; you have to make it work for you. When you apply yourself to these areas of your life, that is when the universe rewards your efforts.. How?.. By bringing opportunities your way. Like energy always attracts like energy.

The fire trine is particularly interesting because Jupiter–the planet of expansion and growth–is about to enter Leo. This means that it is going to accentuate and energize your fire trine for the next year. Things could very well change for the better, Paul, but you’ll have to keep up the momentum,….  and guard against laziness, to be really successful with this.

Your birth chart shows a couple of areas to consider about hidden talents. First, the 12th house reveals areas in one’s life where one might have blind spots, and the sign on the cusp of the house and its ruler can point to areas where you might put some attention. Capricorn on the 12th, with its ruler Saturn in Scorpio in the 9th point to some potentials in making manifest some tangible ideas and projects that need organization and a long-range vision.

Related image….Susan Ann Sulley

Hidden talents for you might include some managerial skills, …… particularly if they involve projects that have some depth (Scorpio) and some higher values and though (9th house).

The dwarf planet Ceres is also in the 12th, suggesting you have have some hidden talents with practical nurturing of others. Ceres in Capricorn is a placement that shows skills as a caring administrator.

Nurturing others with an eye to helping them succeed is a hidden talent for sure. You could do this through being elected to office, but don’t count out other mechanisms.

Related image..Paulo Coelho

I like also to point out the placement of the North Node for thoughts about direction. Your North Node, in Sagittarius in the 11th house, speaks to your search for truth and an intuitive and prophetic grasp on your path (Sag), and toward being a leader in your right in a worthwhile organization or group of like-minded people.

I wanted to mention in passing, Paul, that you have Chiron rising, which has a wounded healer aspect. When people first meet you, Paul, with Chiron in Aquarius rising, you lead with this notion of a noble but wounded person here to offer your perspectives on life with compassion and loving detachment.

Paul. dovetailing with the discussion of your North Node, I suspect you might be on track to know EXACTLY what actions ….. and what timing they will undergo.

Again in looking at your chart, several of your indications combine emotional and intuitive approaches with scientific objectivity and a desire to help humanity move forward. I mentioned the 11th house Sagittarius North Node, but I’m also now seeing that Uranus, one of your 2 chart rulers with Saturn, is in cancer in the 6th house representing one’s activities in one’s workplace, as well as well as health and hygiene. The ruler of the 1st in the 6th shows that you have much invested in work with your identity, and in Cancer that work must be in the caring expression of concern for others. You no doubt have a wonderful bedside manner with Cancer on the cusp of the 6th. Further, with destiny-oriented Jupiter here along with Uranus, you do seem to draw positive and fortunate experiences to you through the realm of showing up to your day-to-day in your work life.

The thing that strikes me about several of the men you mentioned, Paul, is that they developed a singleness of purpose over time. Lincoln, MLK and RFK all had some strong attentions to easing indeed the suffering of some less fortunate people in our communities.

With an Aries Sun, you too can develop a singleness of purpose as well, and your Aquarius Rising and Sagittarius Moon/North Node can add in some detachment ……. and hunger for a meaningful seeking after truth for going forward. They also sought their path through humble interactions with their inner genius and did not brook social disapproval.

With the Bach Passacaglia, in your case,  I imagine that allowing your body to work with the music and keeping your meditation as an internal focus on the image you have might unlock some other potentials that are not available to the rational mind.

In looking again at your chart, focusing on your Moon’s emotional needs to engage with others in an expansive and faithful way, and to craft a blueprint for the human future that you will be able to take some steps every day toward manifesting it.

It’s interesting too that your Saturn is in the 9th house ….. which reflects higher education and accessing higher wisdom through opening to intuition and divine guidance. People with this placement can believe that nothing is worthwhile unless it has practical value. Life can get quite stodgy if they don’t access their imagination and wonderment. You seem to have pushed well into this territory, Paul. I wonder if you might be able to help people bust through their preconceptions to see another way of looking at people who are put into a taboo place, to understand that what we resist persists.

Opening up to trust takes a lot of strength and skill. It’s difficult to know whether you’re going to build confidence in the right people.

Emotionally, you feel more at home with people who have a higher mindset and a broader outlook than just the family unit. However, the two feed each other, with Cancer being part of this sector. The Moon shares rulership with Mercury of the 5th house matters.

Out of curiosity, I looked at your AstroCartoGraphy map again, to see where your North Node is more emphasized…… It crosses the Ascendant in northern Chile, Bolivia, western Brazil and Surinam. It also has some strength off the coast of Scotland and into Norway, Sweden and Finland….. It crosses the MC (Midheaven) in western Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Egypt, Sudan, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique–interesting how many of them show lots of conflict! Not sure what to make of that. I’m wondering if people from these places might not have something to offer you.

In contemplating your chart some more, Paul, I keep being drawn back to the North Node and the Moon. You may write a book if you wish. You do have Mars in Gemini in the 3rd house which suggests you can have a forceful and fluid approach to getting out … some pivotal ideas. Plus your Sagittarius Moon/Pallas/North Node can give you a fire to bring out some big ideas about where humanity needs to be going. I think even sharing much of your observations about the life you’ve led and the inspirations you draw from  Albert Schweitzer, the Kennedy brothers, Nelson Mandela, etc., would be well-received.

I was struck, by the way, by RFK’s concept of the ongoing “menace of violence.” How that seems to echo in the present day. It is easy to get caught up in it, and it is just as easy to try to retreat into isolation as RFK wisely observed.

“Changing an attitude, returning to a work in progress when one has been discouraged, is surely difficult. However, …….. that is what the hexagram calls for, which I picked out for you. You must not only revise your work, but you must also revise yourself as well. Nothing is harder than self-transformation, which must start with self-awareness.”

I’m wondering where you might take all this…………… ”

This is at large the summary of what she said.

Small epilogue:

Her genuine observations as part of a meaningful correspondence, made an impression on me and left me with appreciation.

Appreciation as well for the way she works and the way she lives….. It was the sort of complementary encounter which I valued for actually various reasons… Often encounters are superficial,  as even in friendships we don’t (always) give away what we really are, the last which may be “restricting” at times…

Like the layers of an onion,  is somehow the soul of a human being, the colours and the texture, – and we have no automatic entry to this entity, – and need to treat the last with respect,  if possible.   Even friendship does not allow someone to have access to this,  and building up trust takes time and for sure is not always that easy..

However, meaningful encounters are so important… asking each other questions…and resonating on the important things in life we can share, – rather than retreating in isolation, or silence and despair perhaps.

Astrology in really good hands did change my perception on the art itself… For sure, …. I was biassed, for various reasons, – but I like to explore the unknown as part of expanding my understanding. Not that I do understand astrology, …….. but there are many other things which I don’t really comprehend…  Yet,  my curiosity for the more unconventional  “ways”  often helped me a bit further and …… an added  holistic approach in health and well-being has, I feel, a time and a place….. if it is enhancing the lives of the living and enlarging  our spiritual condition…

Life is an ongoing adventure of sorts and the beauty is that  it never stops,  so let’s embrace it in whatever the outcome, – unpredictable as this life is…..  Therefore don’t “depend” on Astrology as such to predict anything or guide your lives, but trust the design of your inner compass in the dimension(s) it was created.

For sure,  this requires lots of imagination and intuition for all of us, and indivisible,  – sustained love for all we can do within human race.

Whilst love is the driving force in nature, – compassion is the dimension which could save the world where this grace can be applied within the restrictions and dilemma’s we face.

Whilst lots of people are working on their own,  being more engaged in joint efforts, – both the last in concerted labour through an increased conscious contact with the God of our Understanding, –  will bring us sooner to the purpose and meaning most of us seek in our lives.

Whilst often in the grip of the common coolness, most of it being rooted in the empty dust of our planet, – over and over this world has too many people who don’t know how to express their gratitude and appreciation to each other. However, expressing what we feel in the positive to each other makes more gentle the life of this world.

And so,  we may all have to bring and to bear; just to make the wise distinctions where we are able to, – and to make the little differences where we can, – and to seek the encounters we need to make this happen…
And in most of all of this it is neither the money we lack nor the money we seek, but the compassion we wish for …. and the compassion and goodwill other people need……
True?
Thank you so much!

Todá Rabá!

WE have a DREAM


 

“No matter what people tell,
 

your words and ideas can 
change the world.”

-Robin Williams

->

“It is never my custom to use words lightly.. If 27 years in prison have done anything to us, it was to use the silence of solitude to make us understand how precious words are and how real speech is in its impact on the way people live and die.”
– 
Nelson Mandela   July 2000

“We have ancient habits to deal with, vast structures of power, indescribably complicated problems to solve. But unless we abdicate our humanity altogether and succumb to fear and impotence in the presence of the weapons we have ourselves created, it is as possible and as urgent to put an end to war and violence between nations as it is to put an end to poverty and racial injustice.“
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Great minds have purposes, others have wishes”
 – Washington Irving

Regardless the general conviction that our human potential is enormous, that things are possible which were never thought to be  possible, and that only limiting your choices in life to what seems possible is not always the best deal, – for certain there are limitations at both the personal and environmental level… This despite opinions that if you believe enough, you get it… which applies both at collective and personal level and I guess we all know about this, it’s often about vision..
Related image

Within this context I like to say a few things, moving from the personal level to the collective level, – the last within the domain of the necessity to take the future of humanity up to the next level. All part of a new frontline in our shared values on our concern and attention, – for the future of this world.


Robert Fritz  once wrote: “It is not what a vision is, it’s what a vision does….”

We may wonder what a vision does….it’s a question!..

The question is both relevant  in theatre, composition, music and actually all areas of life including our individual existences..

A hard one perhaps for most of us at times, and we have to struggle for it at various degrees. The dynamics of this are not always easy.

The question at times is: “What is your or my vision really doing?” ……………Not one single human being  trying to find purpose in life does not know about this question, – ..we all ask this ourselves at times.

At times it’s all part of “the battlefield of the mind”, – the heart perhaps as well… Finding direction through vision…
Mind you, ..the mind and the heart and our soul are not always telling the same thing. Therefore it is a battlefield at times to hear the clear cool voice through the movements of the soul. At times we need to switch down the volume of both the emotions and the mind.. At time it’s all part as well of the broader “battlefield” of this world, – a world at different stages….. As “will to live” we live in this world and the word lives in us,  – for most in unalike dimensions.

Many of us try to find meaning or purpose in life through both vision and direction and this is for almost everyone different, diverse as we are.

But to come back on vision:

Vision is the ability to see, – yes to “SEE”… And how complex this can be…..

Often difficult because we are tight into our realities of day-to-day living with so many tasks at hand, so many things to do. And the nature of things we do or have to do is not rarely difficult to line up with the things we really wish to do,  we really wish “to SEE”, – perhaps… Because as how we see things for the future can be so different from the way we see things as they are now….

Helen Adams Keller was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf and blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree. She was asked once : “Is there anything worse than being blind?….” “Yes,” she replied,… “having eyesight but no vision!” ….


For sure this interesting woman within her context knew what she was speaking about. Vision has to do with the belonging of the future, a vivid image of a fascinating future perhaps.  Maybe a powerful expectation. If we get a glimpse of such thing, and the last one being strong enough, we may say this is where we are going and because of that, this is what we are going to do….The point is how strong is the desire, the attraction and the will to live that way to get this image near.

Some would say that whatever we put our mind on is possible within human dimensions…..A concept being put forward and popular within e.g. “the law of attraction”, where emotions and vivid imaginations play such a vital role.. For sure helpful at some extend. In all this vision plays a role, a way of putting things forward with taking everyday a few steps into manifesting the image we created. Creating is a vital word in this process.

This may apply to music, theatre, writing, education, Ministry, Government, our lives and other lives.. Hence there is truth in Robert Fritz saying that the most important thing is what a vision is doing, the dynamics of a work in process.  The last  as a result of the desire so explicitly lived and worked, both in our imagination and reality, with creativity.


Of  many people who died too early through circumstances out of their control, it will never be known how they would have advanced further, how they would have developed their future. We know however that external forces can put an end to things. Likewise for many people does apply as well that restrictive internal forces, combined with particular circumstances perhaps, may cause great obstacles for any vision in progress if we consider the question: What is my vision or your vision doing and what will occur from this? ..
“Love for what you are doing”, a single-minded purpose perhaps, apart from great imagination, are vital for a vision in progress… Or in other words for the material manifestation of what we really want, – also of what we in truth consider to be valuable to do in life… However, –  being deeply unhappy, the loss of people, jobs, a troubled marriage and many others can be too much of a distractions for any vision in progress… For some it may even affect the will to live…

What can we say, in all of this,  about courage or being discouraged, attitude and self-awareness? ..All of this within the context of words, ideas  and  vision….

Let’s start with attitude and returning perhaps to what we need to do at times:

Changing an attitude, returning to a work in progress when one has been discouraged, is surely difficult. One must not only revise the outstanding work or works , but one must also revise him or herself as well. Nothing is harder than self-transformation, which must start with self-awareness. People are just different in both their “make up”, strength, desires and believe systems. But also in their self-awareness. From changing self-awareness may start self-transformation, which is a need at the base for life changing desires and a vision working its way towards manifestation, –  the last with perhaps a bit of luck at times.

Apart from this, apart from simple luck or unprovoked misery, – the thing that strikes me with some of the great historical people in the past is that their vision, embedded in their personality, had a chance to develop into a singleness of purpose over time… In some “oneness” of  soul  vision and purpose, – acquired at times through inspiration and intuition, over many years, – and not rarely weathering various storms and set backs.

Both e.g. Martin Luther King, Jr . Abraham Lincoln and  Robert F. Kennedy had in common that they had all some strong attentions to easing the suffering of some of the less fortunate people, despite the fact that they did not see the outcome or impact they had… Their inner process or their soul’s purpose did however evolve slowly over time, with a variety of circumstances and their personal response to it, – the last contributing to the recognition of their own “blue print” later on in life. They contributed to the dignity of the will to live, at large from public office. They stood by those being put in the shadow, with a strong sense of social justice, – with a strong sense of focus as well to improve humanity as part of their actions..

Words and ideas  with enough desire and conviction may have in some cases an impact on our personal lives and the world. To overcome the almost indescribable problems we face as a human race in the future, a next step in the future of humanity seems almost required to balance both the risks and our chances of survival on this small planet, – the last with great minds who with firm resolution may guide us the direction we may need to take. The direction where it may come  too might be to protect increasingly the will and the ability to live. Such direction has to do with a great vision of those who are able to look ahead. It could be the crafting of a blueprint for the human future which helps people to find themselves within such an image, an image being worthwhile enough to mobilise all the positives in both our intention and efforts. The last being a very dynamic and creative process for those who wish to see.

Inspiration and perseverance can do a lot, including running that extra mile. However when we are born in Syria or Iraq or certain other countries, at some degree we have to deal with what is on our plate there. The will to live for most people on those places is only tuned in on survival…

As within a narrative on nature, we can say that an acorn holds the pattern for an oak tree and even oak trees are different. Or the other way round, an oak tree was once an oak nut…. Often the secret is in the structure of the oak nut, which does not take away that an oak tree may be leaning to the east if the wind through the life time of this tree mainly came from the west. Finding one’s blueprint and acting from this is not the most easiest exercise. There is much we have in common and sharing from this in our united efforts will relieve much of the load we have to carry as human beings. Some are more lucky than others in shifting, digging and dropping sediments on their plate as part of their search for meaning purpose and planning.


There are however no rules in finding your own “blueprint” in life, as being – by comparison – the acorn of an oak tree…
People who dare to search have different ways and there is by far not always logic involved.
I tend to think it is a creative process where we allow to live with the music in us
This music works with us and we work the music, and if  we have a dream, ..we should work the dream and the dream should work with us, and so – at times – words and ideas may change the world when we first change ourselves. The last with the transformation and awareness this requires.
The last for certain not the easiest bit…
