The trick is learning to maintain an unwavering focus upon your desired end result, your completed dream, the "finish line," without insisting upon or contemplating its means of attainment, no matter how logical, obvious, or tempting it may seem.
Agatha Christie: "The supernatural is only the natural of which the laws are not yet understood."
Clarke's three laws
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke formulated three adages that are known as Clarke's three laws, of which the third law is the best known and most widely cited:
- When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
- The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
- Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Top 10 Takeaways from “A New Earth: Create A Better Life” By Eckhart Tolle
1. “ The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.”
I posted Victory Garden back in 2012, but still haven't relocated off the beaten path! It's more relevant now than ever, with escalating nuclear threats, superstorms and rising oceans. Exploring transparent beliefs reveals blocks in the way, made even more so by increased attention? Best to Return To Source and regroup, just in time to align with Mercury Stationary Direct in a couple of days.
Retrograde planets still stuck/backward motion but Mercury goes stationary direct the 18th, and not a moment too soon! I knew better than to redecorate while the stars were askew but needed it done asap so dived in anyway. . . sigh. Actually it's going OK if I don't focus on the detours and delays and by the way the 3rd set of curtains didn't work so awaiting delivery of fourth set. All good and timely reminder next time align with the stars.
It's a cool rainy morning here at The Cottage, perfect weather to just enjoy my home temple, catch up on emails, writing and research/explore areas I might like to live someday. I try to stay out of my own way and trust right for me Divinity inspiration.
How's it going? In spite of the stars, the energy is positive here at The Cottage even with detours, mishaps and retrograde planets. Always up for a challenge, I'm doing a DYI decorating project, with all the usual stalls and restarts magnified by by Mercury and Mars perceived backward motion, ie waiting now on the Goldilocks just right third set of curtains, par for the course. Sigh.
One of the things on our wish list is "Ranch in Montana". It's been on the back burner so long it's become a metaphor for 'the best' -- one of those someday dreams set aside because of career, family responsibilities, practicality. It's another example of self-imposed limitations, beliefs/domestication - misplaced creative Attention etc when we can have it all. Focus on the goal and The Universe supplies.
With the stars retrograde, keep in mind what Edgar Cayce said:
"Yet no influence of any nature-astrologically, hereditary or environmental-surpasses the will of the entity, the birthright of each and every soul." - Edgar Cayce reading 2505-1
"Then, as to the influences from the astrological aspects or sojourns during the interim, know that these are merely urges. As to what one does with or about an urge is oft dependent upon what an entity holds as its ideal-and then the application of will as respecting same." Edgar Cayce Reading 1842-1
If you're awake, aware and intuitively practice using your will, then the above applies. Unfortunately most will recognize the astrological influence after the fact.
One of the co-founders of the Findhorn Community, Eileen Caddy, received guidance from the "still, small voice within" and shared it with the community for more than 40 years until she passed away in 2006. We continue this tradition as her guidance is as relevant today as it was when she received it.
"It is by your own efforts you find the true meaning of life. You have to do your own spiritual work. You have to do your own spiritual findings deep within. Never rely on someone else to do your findings for you. There are no shortcuts in this spiritual life. You cannot find it through anyone else. You may be led along a certain path and helped by a teacher, master, guru or guide, but the time comes when that teacher etc. has to withdraw and has to leave you to go the rest of the way by yourself. This is where all you have learnt has to be put into practice, where self discipline is essential, where obedience may be a matter of life or death, where your faith has to be rock-like and unshakable. You must learn to see things clearly, know exactly where you are going and what you are doing and go right ahead and do it without any hesitation. Never be indecisive and stand on the brink and dither. Plunge right in when you have sought and found the answer and do what you know has to be done."
