How many of you check your horoscope daily looking for clues on how your life is going to go today, what is lurking in the future and context for the circumstances of your life?
How many of you then decide, based on the horoscope, whether there is any truth to it or not?
That is the game I have played for years. If it was a good horoscope and it resonated with me, I would believe it. If not, I would just discard it as a silly source of entertainment.
We are all searching for answers to life’s questions. We all want to bring clarity to our own situations. We want to know why? We want to know why us? We want to know why not us? So, we read horoscopes, talk to friends, see psychics, and get our tea leaves read. I have done it all. What I found was, no one gave me an answer I didn’t already have and that is how I knew they were right.
The times when the horoscope is bang on, the psychic knew everything, your friend hit the nail on the head was all just validation, not new information. It resonated with you because it was your truth. The truth you have access to every minute of every day. We have been told that since the beginning of time.
1 Corinthians 2:11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him?
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. Buddha
Everyone who wills can hear the inner voice. It is within everyone. Mahatma Gandhi
So why do we look outside of ourselves for the answers?
Because we have a hard time believing we are smart enough to have the answers, or are too far removed from our own core to access them, or we can’t believe we have the right answer because we don’t like the answer we get.
But, we do have the answers. Every day, Every situation. We know who we are and what to do. Always.
That was the way it was designed from the beginning.
Before we got busy and overworked and underpaid and increased the number of tasks we juggle at one time. We have people bothering us via Twitter, text, e-mail and phone. You can’t unplug because something really bad could happen, like being fired, or your kids needing you, or missing out on the latest news. So, we take a shortcut to the answer, looking for the fastest way to make sense of where we are instead of stopping, unplugging, and listening to our own voice in the now quiet arena, no longer deafened by the cries of family, bills, activity, bosses, and friends.
Yet, if you stay quiet long enough, a whisper can be heard.
I am here.
Your Source of everything.
The original Google.
And, if you spend enough time here, you will never again seek answers outside of yourself. You will know why. You will know why not. You will understand the context for the circumstances of your life.
And then, you will be your own horoscope, knowing every day that it is true.
