What can be changed and what can´t

21 01 2010

In other posts that I have made I have argued in favour of destiny and against free human choice. I have said that people are 100% conditioned into the actions and the events that occur in their lives, and in a certain way I still agree with this. It comes down to the old saying that you can call a cat a fish, but it will still be a cat. Free will is akin to the cat himself saying and thinking that he´s a fish and declaring it in joyful exuberance. The United States can declare that it is a “free nation”, but it´s just a country like any other, it has laws and people, an army and a head of state. It may be more successful, but that it is more free than anyone else is probably not true.

When I worry, (Virgo rising with Virgo Mars Rising squared by Sagittarius Neptune), I sometimes think that somehow I can control my world around me if only I were more organised. But I´ve come to realise that I am destined to think that I can control things in this way. This is part of the planetary alignment in the sky when I was born. Fear and worry leads to action, which is called for in order to fulfill the planetary patterns.

Can some things be changed through the individual will? When action is taken, it feels as if destiny is created through the self. And I think that there is the possibility that individuals can change their realities. Energy comes down from the heavens all of the time. This is the will of God, as in Heaven, so on Earth. People though, aren´t adaptable though, and can´t change what they are from one day to the next, in order to fall in line with the cosmic order. It´s true, some people are more adaptable. But people can still do God´s work.

This is where the Biblical explanation comes in handy. Man had a destiny, in Eden, and well, humans chose to opt out. There´s our free-will from the start.  Many have stated that it is Scorpio where Man fell committing some form of vice, but Man in fact is synonymous with the constellation of Aquarius. The Fall of Saturn ruler of Aquarius and ruler of the human condition falls in Tropical Aries, the sign where individuals do what they want. Libra, Saturn´s exaltation is then where our judgement for that selfishness will be found. This is not to say that Libra is any better than Aries.

What I am saying though, is that our lives are planned for by a higher power. And the difference between our own wills, and that of the higher power, is that when we make judgements, it´s impossible to make the right judgement, we simply don´t have the foresight of the creator.

The difference is between making something happen that is not meant to happen, because we as humans are separated from God and do not know his will. And on the other hand waiting and just allowing the instructions to come down to us.

When human beings cut down trees, and leave the land alone, eventually trees grow back in the same place, because the climate and the fauna favour it. Cutting down the trees is not exactly God´s will, it´s Man´s actions, ruled by the sign of Aries. In the perfect balance of the creation of the Universe, the trees do eventually grow back because there are seeds, and the counter-action, the Libran element of balancing things out, although it takes time and is invisible at first, is real.

Is this to say that human beings are not to cut down trees? Clearly not. Just that it´s obvious that in this world actions result in counter-actions, which are invisible but which are there even though in our semi-foresight we aren´t aware of them.

Man was created in order to be master of the trees and of the animals, this is also stated in divine law. God allowed us to do with them as we saw fit, to name them and to eat them. The divine will, was that humans were meant to be happy, we were meant to enjoy the fruits of this world. It was the fruit that wasn´t ready that Man picked that got us into this mess. It was a lack of patience, and a lack of the knowledge that in life God gives everyone the same amount of happiness, just that it is meassured.

In my life, I try everyday to not indulge myself or to take what is not meant for me. The secret to true happiness is to eat porridge everyday and really savour when someone gives you a chocolate. The secret is to not worry about your job, about whether they might want you or not, but just to calmly do it without thinking that someone is watching you and what you do. If you weren´t good enough they wouldn´t have picked you.

It is hard to find a way to trust in divine law, it is hard to have faith in something that you can´t see. In one sense I don´t think that this law needs to wait generations in order to be fulfilled, in our lives, an evil committed will pollute the person who commits it. And even though they may appear to have got clean off the hook, and enjoy the fruits, consecuences are destined to follow them.

Collectively, obviously the global warming issue fully demonstrates this idea of the balance within nature. The interconnectedness of the planet is astounding, and all of the scientists are in accorance on this fact. On a personal level though, there is a destiny for all. What would be interesting, would be to observe people who didn´t take their quota of happiness before it was due or take more than they were entitled to, then suffer for those debts.

There is No GOD, but a bunch of buffoons sitting up there in true American fashion of governance – bunch of nitwits ruling.
Is it any wonder that the powerful Roman GODS of yore – Zeus, Apollo et al. are defunct today????
How about the Egyptian ones that date back 5000 years????
Man accepts what is convenient. Stephen Hawkings says it correctly – GOD is a frigging myth as far as science is concerned.

Humans need to learn to accept a broader responsibility instead of blaming it all on superficial beings they revere, that don’t exist.

There are times when I question whether or not God exists, but, like you, I was raised in very spiritually focused surroundings’ so returning to a space of faith feels quite natural to me (or is naturally or “natally” embedded within me). Fortunately for me, I was not raised in a dogmatic way. I was given the freedom to explore beyond the confines of my mom’s chosen faith Christianity and my dad’s chosen faith of Islam.

I do believe that circumstances can be changed. The fact that God sought to kill Moses, yet did not, tells me that there are things that affect plans, even God’s plans. At least I think this is the case. But, really, I know nothing except the fact that I know nothing.

TO RK: You need to broaden your horizens, my friend, and read Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawson. “God” is simply an illusion, pablum for the masses. Start out with ‘god is not Great’; it’s available at Amazon.com. To Buddy: BTW, I do like your blog; I’m just getting to know about synastry, etc. It looks like you’re light years ahead of me. I, myself, am an Aquarian with a Virgo moon and Libra rising. My Venus is in Aquarius and my Mars in Taurus. Perhaps this makes me opinionated (and right I am!).

To Lisa P-G:
I,too, have Venus in Aquarius,Mars in Taurus…and I’ve seen WAY too many
amazing things happen to me,and others, to believe there ISN’T Something
more powerful than ME! It would be ridiculous to dispute reality! (Eg:When I 15,and home with the flu..my mom’s boyfriend didn’t call like he saId(horrors!)
I hated this one guy. Next thing I know, I’ve sneaked out in my jammies,a friend is driving me to find his house, and I’m knocking on the guy’s door(huh?What am I going to say:”How come you didn’t call???”)Somehow, the
caretaker opens the door for me. He’s lying by the door in a pool of blood.
Dark blood…paramedics say he was less than an hour from death.,I saved
his life,and I STILL don’t understand I (STILL didn;t like him.!) I hadn’t known where
he lived!What could DO that except something BIGGER than we two humans
every could be. The punchline is…after sustaining 3rd degree burns at 22
months of age…I apparently died that night..BUT my doctor
had decided to SLEEP BY MY BED(?!) and was THERE to save MY life.
So SOMEONE SAVED MY LIFE….I returned the favour 15 years later..Whoa!
I haven’t ever found logical explanations;chance/coincidence/simple luck
are right out. I’m going with ‘Presence of a Higher Order/Intelligence’.!
