How To Not Be A Racist, 101

I look at it from the 1-3 layer perspective. There are 3 layers to us, one of real value and significance and two of ornamental value. Who we are, how we define ourselves, and how others see us. Who we are can only be recognized by embracing the collective and acknowledging the source from where all matter flows, the Divine. You know who you are when you can accept that there is no separation from the Divine. Racism, discrimination, and prejudice are how we figure out our ornamentation. The illusions that lead us back to the divine, inherently contain the belief that we are separate from it. When we believe in our race, color, creed, religion, socio-economic status, or personality we lose sight of who we truly are and focus then on the many pathways back to ourselves and the Divine. When we put all our focus on the Divine we then see ourselves as we are and as others see us. Unity is the Divine. Here are three exercise’s to help you focus on integration instead of separation.

1. Make a list of 3 things you feel define you, then ask yourself who you would be without these things.

2. Write down one thing that you discriminate against, or feel prejudice for. Be honest. Now, imagine being that thing. Write down 3 ways your life would be different.

3. Light a candle. Sit quietly and stare at the flame. Close your eyes and visualize that flame. Now visualize that flame directly in the center of your chest, feeling the warmth of the flame emanating from your body. Now imagine that this flame is the collective heart of all creation. Sit in this way for 3 minutes. When you are finished, ask yourself the importance of the 3 things you feel define you.

New Astrology?

Of course you’ve heard all the hullabaloo about the change of the Moon’s gravitational pull on the Earth changing the sign’s of the zodiac, and then the removal of a 13th sign of the zodiac in Babylonian times. Astronomy is the study of the placement of the stars in the sky and is based on facts (or our ability to discern the facts). Astrology is the study of the impact of that alignment on us, on any given day, and is based on our understanding of the facts and their meaning. In the past twenty years of my use of Astrology, I have found that Astrology is best used as a tool to better understand yourself and your life rather than for the purpose of prediction. In your natal chart, which is the placement of the stars on the day and time of your birth, the Sun sign is only one twelfth of the equation, and represents your personality and the general way in which you do things. In a traditional natal chart you have several planets and asteroids that are representative of all the aspects of you and your life. For example, Pluto, representing the unconscious, was discovered on February 18th, 1930 as a dwarf planet but on September 11, 2006 was re-classified based on new information, as an asteroid. Chiron an asteroid, was discovered on November 1st, 1977, and is now included in most traditional natal charts because of its great impact on the understanding of an individual’s spirituality. Does the demotion of Pluto to asteroid #134340 make it any less impactful, or does the acknowledgement of Chiron, as an asteroid, make its impact any less true. Any possible change in zodiac doesn’t make you a different human being but may just give you further understanding of yourself, which to me is the point. Keep in mind, that this information is being brought about now and being presented as seemingly important, so it may just be the opportunity you need to see something new in yourself or maybe acknowledge how you have grown as a person before this news story goes away. Or maybe our collective consciousness is ready to embrace what Ophiuchus, (Nov. 29-Dec. 17) represents.

Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17.- My summation of Ophiuchus: the snake holder and it what it represents is a strong affinity for the transformation and transmutation of energy. For seeing the underlying elements in any situation and being able to recognize how and when healing can take place.
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20.

Words That Influence

Make no mistake about it, your words influence. Reading and watching the news today about the aftermath of Arizona Representative Gifford’s shooting, people are asking whether or not the political climate contributed. Well, of course it did! Words are the carrier of our essence or spirit. when we speak them they travel out into the universe and stick to others that think or feel simularly. When that collected spirit hits critical mass, words and thoughts can be moved into action. On NO level am I saying that one persons actions are another persons fault. What I am saying is that we are all interconnected, and that everyday we contribute to one another in ways that we can immediately see, and in ways that will become apparent in time. Each and every one of us must take responsibility for our words and consider carefully their impact and not pretend that we, and they, are powerless.
