I am a Healer, Psychologist, educator and Sound Therapist with an avid interest in consciousness and transpersonal experiences. Oh and did I mention Astrology?
Last night I watched a documentary about Aung San Suu Kyi. Her bravery and modesty epitomise grace in the dirty world of politics.
Her life as the daughter of a general seemed to set the scene for her future. However, as she pointed out throughout the programme - it was all a matter of choice. She had afterall settled in England, married and had children. It was only the ill health of her mother that took her back to Burma, coincidentally as revolution broke out. Aung San Suu Kyi decided to stay. She forsook comfort, safety, freedom, and risked the break up of her marriage. She lost out on the formative years of her children growing up. These sacrifices she was consciously willing to make for the greater good of the whole population of Burma. Outcomes could not be foreseen nor by any means guaranteed but she persisted.
How far is life dictated by circumstance, fate or coincidence? It is impossible to be exact on this. There is no scientific measure. It is only with hindsight that we may assume or presume that things were 'meant' to be.
Astrology may give us some clues as do other forms of divination, and psychism. However, nothing is set in stone. We DO still have choice in how we act. In this world of time-space dualism in which we live, what we do today will have repercussions further along the line, either limiting our choices or opening new doors of opportunity in the future, all of which will affect those around us in some way too.
What choices will you make today?
