What are you?
Today marks the next and natural phase of spiritual unfoldment and awakening in the Astrological Year. The first phase of Aries poses the most fundamental question, “Who am I?”. But now it is Taurus, who asks you to consider the equally profound question, “What am I”?
In Aries you are simply trying to be, to know and feel that “I am”. Aries is your most intimate and immediate experience of being self-aware. Through Aries, you encounter you in the considerations of what I call your “Presence”, the many and varied personas you bring to meet the conditions you encounter in the ever-unfolding “Now”.
But in Taurus you move out of this subjective realm into objective reality, you experience yourself as some “thing”. In Taurus you come down to Earth and say, “I am That”. Taurus is your most physical, sensuous experience of life. You open your eyes and see the beauty all around; you open your lungs and breathe in what we all share. You take another breathe, and you smell the flowers; you reach down and touch the earth, and smile, and give thanks to the mother of us all for this, for your life and for your body. You look up and see your star, and you watch the moon, planets and stars whirling overhead and you exclaim, “Ooh, I am so happy, to be surrounded by such beauty, to be part of this amazing, beautiful, wondrous journey…I am so grateful to be part of LIFE”.
Yes, Taurus is life as abundance, as beauty and majesty. Taurus is you being one with life in gratitude, grace and peace. You are here in this wonderful place you call Earth, to feel and taste and touch and smell the wonders of this garden of delights, and to share this abundance of Life-Spirit with all with whom you journey.
But what is it that makes you, you? What do you have that is yours, what gives you the value of you? Well, this is the question of Taurus to you. Through the arc of your life, from infancy through youth, into adulthood and onward, your experience of you and your value or worth will rise and fall in so many ways. The enthusiasms and physical strengths of youth, give way to the gravitas, wisdom (and the aches) of later years. It seems, depending upon your journey, that your best days are still ahead, or far behind you, depending upon how you value you.
But in Truth, at the very heart of you, you remain as you will always be, priceless, beyond all measure, for you know, you are not a human being at all. That is merely the form of your self-realization at this point in your never-ending journey. Truly, at your core, you are a spark of the Divine who is on a never-ending journey of the “Self-That Is Becoming”. You are a monad, an unfolding Spiritual Fire of Life-Spirit-Consciousness and your true worth or value will forever be beyond any finite measure.
So, no matter what you think you are worth today, or yesterday, or a thousand years from now, remember this, you have no way of comprehending the beauty and glory and worth of you. You are the jewel in the lotus, the kiss of dew in the morning, and you are the glorious sunset too.
But then the Ancient Ones will whisper in your heart, “What you know as the resplendent and immortal you, the Heaven that is always within you, (for you never left it truly), this essential spark of you, know in your heart of hearts that this same light of the Divine is in everything too.”
Yes, in every speck and mote of Creation, in every atom, molecule, gas and rock, plant and creature, or planet and star, all of this is Spirit-Life in evolution too. This is what you will understand in Taurus.
What you will know, feel and celebrate in Taurus is that all of this is Beautiful, all of this is Precious, because all of this is the One Life, and all of this is the Creation of the One.
So, give thanks to the sunrise and sunset, to the flowers and the trees, to the mountains and the oceans, yes bow down and give thanks to it all.
With love, bow to the divine within you and with all that surrounds you too.
And every day, turn and really look upon one another, and you will see that supernal light that is shining there.
Yes, smile at one another and be filled with the wonder of this.
Give thanks for all these blessings, give thanks for life and simply say to one another,
