The Artistic-Sciences of Astrology,Tarot....Why?

"Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they
show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find
what you already know, and you'll see the way to fly."
~Jonathon Livingston Seagull~



The human mind possesses endless potential to understand, analyse and interlink the various parameters and stimuli in life, yet it is bound and limited by its own preconceived notions. Kids grow up into adults and yet do not possess the courage and the wings to go deep down inside their own psyche and understand what spurs them on, what sets them free, what makes them LIVE in the true sense of the word.


It may be societal expectations, it may be challenges that life has thrown at them or it may be simply their own mental inhibitions but its a fact that very rare are those few persons who have understood their motivations and compulsions and then fought against life's resistant forces to make their dreams come true. Such people most of the times reach great heights of achievement and I strongly believe that even if they are not successful in the  wordly sense, they reach that level of Self Realisation that fulfills them emotionally and spiritually.


The first step towards such an immense and fulfilling journey is to KNOW YOURSELF. The process of understanding the Self is not a scientific exercise that can be manipulated by formulaic expressions. Its a thrilling ride into the interiors of one's mind and soul. The Esoteric Sciences like Astrology, Tarot, Palmistry and Numerology are beautiful, ancient and deep tools that can help an individual discover his personality nuances, his impulses and his karma in life.


There is a lovely Italian quote that I must mention here:


"People travel to wonder at the height of mountains,
at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers,
at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of
the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering."
~St. Augustine~



Before marvelling at the creations of the Almighty all around us, its our duty and our honour(as intelligent and evolved species of human beings) to discover ourselves. What is our purpose in Life? What should we do professionally and in personal life to create harmony and balance between our heart and Mind? What directions does my life hold? 


Deep questions. Requiring Deeper analysis.


Welcome to MY WORLD. Of Insights, observations, quirks and just the pure unadulterated pleasure of being ALIVE and BEING AWARE !!
