Ancient Books #1: The Bhagavad Gita

“The Gita is the sixth book of the Mahabharata, one of India’s most famous epic poems. It’s unclear exactly when the Gita was composed—estimates vary widely, but a number of scholars suggest it was completed around 200 CE and then inserted into the larger work; many see it as the first fully realized yogic scripture. Curious though it may seem that such an ancient text from a foreign culture has been so enthusiastically received by Westerners, the Gita, like all truly great works of literature, can be read on many levels: metaphysical, moral, spiritual, and practical; hence its appeal.

For those who haven’t had the pleasure of reading it, the Gita recounts a dialogue between Arjuna, one of five Pandava princes, and the Hindu deity Krishna, who in this epic serves as Arjuna’s charioteer. Arjuna and his brothers have been exiled from the kingdom of Kurukshetra for 13 years and cut off from their rightful heritage by another faction of the family; the Gita takes up their struggle to reclaim the throne, which requires that Arjuna wage war against his own kinsmen, bringing his considerable military skills to bear.

The story begins on the dusty plains of Kurukshetra, where Arjuna, a famed archer, is poised to fight. But he hesitates. He sees arrayed against him friends, teachers, and kin, and believes that to fight—and likely kill—these men would be to commit a grievous sin and could bring nothing good even if he were to win the kingdom back. Krishna chides him for his cowardice—Arjuna is from the warrior caste after all, and warriors are meant to fight—but then goes on to present a spiritual rationale for battling his enemies, one that encompasses a discussion of the karma, jnana and bhakti yogas, as well as the nature of divinity, humankind’s ultimate destiny, and the purpose of mortal life.”

Astrology #4: Venus – The Planet Of Love & Money

“Venus is all about pleasure, especially pleasure shared with someone else. This planet concerns itself with love, romance and harmony in our emotional attachments, marriages, friendships and other unions (like business partnerships). Venus is content to spread happiness and tenderness, all the while teaching us how to love and appreciate others and the things that we possess.

We appear attractive — and we attract others — thanks to Venus’s energy. Socializing with and relating to others are important to this planet.

Beauty is also strongly associated with Venus. The arts (music, dance, drama and literature, to name a few) and a sense of the aesthetic fall within the realm of Venus. Venus beseeches us to indulge our senses and revel in the beauty of our world. This planet is inextricably linked to refinement, culture, charm and grace.

Venus also deals with the pleasure we derive from our possessions. Luxuries (jewelry, paintings, expensive cars), good food and drink, a beautiful home and a sense of refinement all please Venus’s interests. This planet asks us to appreciate the exquisite nature of things. It’s a sensual — though not necessarily sexual — world as far as Venus is concerned.

Venus takes 225 days to complete its orbit of the zodiac; it is never more than 47 degrees from the Sun. It is a feminine energy and rules both Taurus and Libra, and the Second and Seventh Houses.”

Did You Know #65: How Much Of The Amazon Rainforest Has Been Destroyed?

Scientists fear the Amazon Rainforest is closer to a tipping point where it will enter an irreversible cycle of collapse known as a dieback. Between 15 and 17 percent of the Amazon rainforest has been lost, and if the amount of cleared forest land reaches 25 percent, there won’t be enough trees cycling moisture through the rainforest. That will cause the rainforest to dry out and degrade into a savanna.

How Astrology and Human Design Compare and Contrast

Welcome fellow souls to « The Human Family Crash Course Series, » a new project collaborated together by empress2inspire.blog and diosraw.com. Together we will be working on a different topic for each crash course; our third topic is focused on «Western Esotericism.» Each topic will have eight posts with posts on Mondays and Thursdays. We hope you enjoy our series and we look forward to knowing how our posts have inspired you!

When we get deeper into the actual system, we actually see that it sort of combines these 4 ancient systems.

Astrology – Because the human design chart is actually created on the basis of your birth date. There is this moment of birth, the time and the place. Time is however not that important in human design as it is in astrology because design doesn’t actually work with 4 angels in the chart which is the ascendant, the angle of career, the angle of the home and the angle of the partnership. Planets, just like in astrology, there are planets in human design but instead of activating houses and area of life experiences in astrology and signs of the zodiac, in human designs, we look at plants located in these 9 energy centres. They are also going to be in 64 gates. The gates are actually related to the genetic codons that we all carry. There are 64 codons in our DNA.

What is fascinating is that there are 64 hexagrams in the I-Ching book which is the ancient chinese divination oracle. It was very popular in the 60s and Carl Jung was using it, talking about it and traditionally you would use sticks to create lines to make Yin and Yang patterns. So the Yang lines were the solid lines and yin were the broken lines, the masculine and feminine coming together. The way it used to work is that you would toss it 6 times and a hexagram would be formed from this series of lines. Those hexagrams were formed out of two trigrams and the trigrams in chinese cosmology have to do with what’s called a Bagua. This is the 8 archetypes of nature. When these 8 combine with each other, we will have 64 possibilities in these hexagrams. Those hexagrams are living within us as our genetic codons. These codons are located in the energy centres in our bodygraph.

These energy centres are similar to the chakras in our body. This is in accordance with the Vedic Hindu & Chakra System. They are also similar to the sephoras in the Kabbalah. These energy centres combine with each other with what we can use these 36 channels. This is again similar to the tree of life which has the 2 pathways. In Human Design when we look at the biographies, it sort of resonates with others system like Astrology, the I-ching and the Kabbalah and the Vedic Hindu Chakra system,

There is another system which defines our Human Design system and that basically starts 88 days before we were born. When you look at a bodygraph, you will find planets which are in black and there are lines in black, then you will look at red or pink lines and planets. The ones in black is known as conscious personality and the other ones in pink and red signify the 88 days before we were born which is unconscious personality.

Conscious personality is dependent upon where the planets are in your chart and in which house. So you are going to be aware of it. The unconscious is operating at the same time but below the surface. You may not be as aware in your daily life. The unconscious has a lot to do with inherited patterns and there are two ways in which it may be operating :
Genetic or Ancestral
Soul level or Karmic residue
When we look at the bodygraph, both the calculations are very significant.

Mysterious Phenomena #8: Lightning Storms, Venezuela

Lightning storms are a beautiful, but also quite scary, atmospheric phenomenon. The bright bolts are triggered when the electrical activity is particularly abundant during a storm. The longest and most intense lightning storm recorded lasted for hours on end and occurred in Los Angeles 9 July 1999. The highest rate of lightning storms was recorded in Venezuela close to the Maracaibo lake with 232 lightnings per year and square kilometre.

Mysterious Phenomena #1: Fairy Circles, Namibia

Across the arid grasslands of the Namib Desert lies an eerie sight: millions of circular patches of land void of plants, each between 2m and 15m in diameter, arranged in a honeycomb-like pattern across 2,500km of land. These disks of bare soil, known as fairy circles, pockmark the landscape in Namibia, as if giant moths ate through the vast carpets of grassland.

Adding to the mystery, no one knows for certain what causes these otherworldly formations, writes Quora user Prem Rathaur. But there’s no shortage of theories.

Astrology #3: Mercury – The Planet Of Communication

“Mercury, much like the winged messenger of the gods, comes in on feather-light wings and commands us to speak. Communication, intellect and awareness are all within Mercury’s domain, as are logic and reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes.

A mercurial nature brings to mind restlessness and motion. Rat-a-tat-tat — things happen fast here. Mercury is about a quick wit, quick thinking, possibilities, opinions, reasoning and the ability to rationalize things. Mercurial energy can be good or bad, but it will certainly be energizing! This planet also prompts us to move from one thing to the next and to get answers on both a physical and psychological level. Further, Mercury’s energy is both dexterous and perceptive.

Mercury is about short trips: a visit to a neighbor or a friend across town, the workaday commute, a weekend getaway. Siblings, and transportation in general, are also within Mercury’s realm.

Speaking, writing, books, online communications and learning are all within Mercury’s domain. This planet implores us to express ourselves often — and well. When Mercury goes retrograde (the appearance of traveling backward), however, our communications will be challenged.

Mercury is never more than 28 degrees from the Sun; it takes about 88 days to complete its orbit of the Sun. It is neither masculine nor feminine energy and assumes the gender of the sign it is in. It rules both Gemini and Virgo, and the Third and Sixth Houses.”

Did You Know #64: Nature Vs. Nurture

Rarely do psychologists consider the cause of some behavior as due solely to either “nature” (meaning, roughly, biology) or “nurture” (the environment). For the most part, psychologists will talk about some psychological feature (e.g., how extraverted someone is) as the product of the interaction of both nature and nurture across the lifespan. The idea of behavior being due exclusively to nature or nurture is, actually, something of a myth.

Poetry #110: A Garden Of Heart

Our hearts are chambers

Some say, the seat of the soul

Where our love congulates

And envigorates our bodies with red iron rich blood

Flooding our god given flesh suit

This heart has carried much

Turning black, numb and dead

And fed many who were hungry for love instead

Beating around 104,000 times in a day

Each heart beat not needing to be wasted on ruminations

Dancing to it’s very own beat

This vessel has expanded and contracted in the face of loss

Broken open, a green chakra, coloured as moss

Expanding electro magnetic fields intersecting and blending across this city street

Souls some will never meet

Search for healing words and plant them into your wounds

Someday you will have a garden of love

Cheers to creating poetry to clean the dark walls of my heart

I hold you tight sweetheart.
