The Path of Awakening
From the depths of experience, we encounter the Jewels of Meaning.
And from these Truths we have met, we weave our Stories of one another.
Yes, we encounter the truth in Scorpio, but in Sagittarius we tell our stories to one another.
And that is how we forge the path, so that we may live with meaning and purpose in our lives.
At this time of the year, and somewhere in your very own chart, you enter the Realm of Truth that is Sagittarius. Since we humans became human thousands of years ago, that is when we “woke up” and became self-aware, we have sought to experience “The Why” of our journey with one another.
When we woke, we wondered, why is the sky “blue”; why does the Sun rise and set; why do I ask why; and why am I? Which of course led us to heart of "why", why is anything?
Yes, we sought and will ever seek to know the why of our journey. Why...because we have felt the joy of love and the agony of loss, we have witnessed the miracle of birth and faced the mystery of what comes after death. We are aware, and we know that we do not know…and so we wonder, and we seek, and we strive to understand.
We have been on a very long journey of Awakening. After countless ages of simple awareness, the Light of Self-Awareness was bestowed upon us by those who had received this gift of awakening long, long before our time. We honor these elder brothers and sisters, whose names echo down through the ages, Prometheus, Quetzalcoatl, Aditi, Isis, Lucifer, Odin… We are the heirs to a great fortune, and we honor their gifts by keeping the flame of Truth alive.
We do this as we have always done this, by being what we are. We are Storytellers. In songs and symbols, in petroglyphs and pictures, in architecture and statues, in poetry and prose, in the Temples of Truth that are Science, Religion and Art, we tell the stories that have come down to us and add our own to these greatest of gifts, this Treasure of Truth.
The greatest of Truths, the Eternals of Light and Meaning, have been shared with us by the Sages and Seers whose task it was to preserve the “Gifts from the Gods”. These are the wisest of the Wise Ones, the Teachers who we know and honor and revere, Confucius, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Zoroaster, and Pythagoras and so many more. There are the known Truthtellers; but many more loved and labored to lift the Torch of Understanding, and we give thanks for their great service, for those who persevered, preserved, protected, and served to extend the Light that is Love.
And each one of us is here to do the very same thing. We are storytellers, one and all. And we made and will remake one another throughout our many lives by sharing our stories with one another. This is how it was done, and this is what you must do too. You must share with one another, listen to one another, and help one another find your way to the Greater Understanding.
What the great ones found is what you will find too, that Truth is omnipresent and everlasting, as it forms the very substance and meaning of the Universe. That is why you can perceive it, that is why you can know. Because what you see out there in the stars above is the very same truth that shines in your own heart too.
This is what is meant by “As above, so below”, because in the heart of every particle of creation, there is shining the undying Light of the One. This is the One Truth from which all others come, that “Spirit is Life; Life is Spirit, and all of this is held by the Love of the One.”
And so, it is known in the Ancient Wisdom that as there is but one Spirit, so there is but one Life. That is why the Truth is there for every one of us, for it is in One and all. If you have ears that are willing to listen, and eyes that are open to see, you will understand. You need only to weave together, and hold together, your heart and your mind and find peace.
You need to gather together, to really look into one another’s eyes, and you will smile.
You will see, shining back from those windows of the soul, the blazing truth that we are for one another the answer to the question, “Why”?
Why are you here?
You are here for one another; you are here to love one another.
Do this and you will remember who you are.
And your heart will be at peace.
