Okay, so, I AM spending a great deal more time over THERE on my Taoist blogsite. You know, the Tao just comes in flow, just as astrology does. I have decided to simply “let go” of what and where I should be doing anything and invite my readers to experience the rhythmic, non-linearly-delineated wisdoms of, well, kinesthetic wisdom. I have so many interests and, in my younger days, felt guilty when I was doing one thing as opposed to another. I felt that I was neglecting something I should be doing while attending to something else. Now that I have entered a different phase and different perspective of life, I realize how the movement between each subject and activity only enlivens and enriches the others. No, it’s not conventional and may, at times, seem crazy or inattentive, but, just like the wonderful man in the photo here, over time, it all makes sense.
A wonderful man I once knew, my acupuncturist, who was actually my star twin (born within two weeks of each other) told me that, being a Taoist, one becomes the interstitial fluid that flows through and into each and every cell of the body. We flow. Others choose to be the stationary cell, but we choose to move between millions of those cells. Neither one can be what it is without the other. Flow depends on the stationary and the stationary depends on the flow. It all comes down to discerning choice. Emphasis on Discerning and Choice. Know what it is you are choosing to do and all becomes right.
So, I hope you stay with me in the flow of life and the tao and astrology and all other subjects that bear upon our lives at the moment. As that famous quote states: “Every tangent turns into a circle, if you just have the patience to wait long enough.” I am over there right now. With my crazy, drunk masters of light. Hope you can make the journey.
Okay, well, still moving back and forth between my websites. And, it seems, they are integrated in some way I do not yet fully understand. However, I do know both are informing each other at sometimes unconscious levels. In discussing Venus and the particular plight of women in our current world view – seriously limited as it is, I have, indeed, written an article over THERE at taowisdom.wordpress.com, that does, indeed, relate to what is going on over here. We do need to build the voice of Venus and the Feminine, so destroyed over millennia. And that takes time and a willingness to address it through different avenues.
In the meantime, as I still stumble toward Venus and self-identity, I hope the essay I have written of THERE helps in that process.
I seem to be stumbling across a number of articles these days that express, far more beautifully than I can, my own philosophical orientation to life and the need to return to a very vital, sacred part of human nature which has been lost to the commodifying, consumerist culture that has, over time, impoverished our spiritual selves.
This is what I wish we all could do for our children and ourselves.
It is called: Remember Your Song
I stumbled across this post today and feel it is very valuable in connecting the body/mind/spirit with celestial activity. In addition, just after our recent CME flares, I had been experiencing a number of the exact symptoms described in the article. They were, in fact, making me feel extremely ill. It was quite relieving and helpful to read this author’s article and to be able to view those symptoms in a much broader perspective – and certainly a more positive one than they had been making me feel.
And, yes, still working on the next installment of Venus Crossing the Sun.
