What is the purpose of life? For me, the answer is quite simple: The purpose of life is to evolve one’s consciousness to the point where reincarnation is no longer necessary. Of course, this doesn’t happen all in the span of a single lifetime, but the way I look at it, the more you do now, the less you have to do later on.
If you’re reading this blog, you are most likely engaged in work that might be called “New Age.” And I think that’s great because you’ve realized that it’s going to take more than the “usual” or “normal” to get you where you want to go. If we follow the crowd, we become like the crowd but if we follow our hearts, we turn into our True Self.
It takes a long time to turn your consciousness around. I should know; I’ve been at it since 1988 and I’m still challenged. But I’m also a lot wiser and more empowered than I was when I began and that growth is reflected in every aspect of my life.
What is the purpose of this blog? Well, it’s the next chapter of my life and, in that context, this blog is a part of engaging in a wider dialog. Our tendency is to talk about the things we do or enjoy with people who also enjoy those things. Such discussions can be stimulating at times but they can be limited by the fact that all the participants think the same way. So this blog is an effort to mix things up a little.
I intend to address astrology (mainly from an evolutionary standpoint) and consciousness work (often from a very “nuts and bolts” point of view), with a few social issues thrown in for good measure. “And just where do social issues fit into all of this?” you may ask. Well, I find that many of the socio/cultural issues given prominence in the media are perfect illustrations of mental/emotional issues suffered by people everywhere. Discussions centering around those issues in connection with how they reflect one’s consciousness can be wonderful learning opportunities, if only for their ability to assist us in developing compassion.
Most of all, I hope to provoke my readers into thinking about things in new ways, asking questions they never before considered, and instigating discussions that will result in as many questions as answers.
