Today my blog is short. I’m feeling like there is just too much to take in right now. I have learned so many new things and begun to travel in so many new directions that I may explode. As I sort through some of it I may find ways to write about it.
I love learning and as part of my journey in spiritual direction I believe it is important to understand many of the spiritual approaches people take in life. This week I’ve been exposed to natal charts and sun signs along with Universal Laws, Shamanic Principles and the delightful concept of body language being used to increase our ability to tackle some of the hard stuff in life.
In the past I have avoided this particular path of learning because “readings” and “horoscopes” frightened me. I didn’t want to live under a curse that someone put on me so I wouldn’t even entertain reading my horoscope. This week I have learned that the ancient art very different from the modern, materialistic approach to the subject and while I’m sure I will never explore the subject in depth I have had my eyes opened.
That is a regular occurrence for me. My foray into the world of charismatic Christianity left me with many biases which were based in fear and ignorance. Now those are being stripped away and it makes me squirm a bit. I have a been less open minded than I thought myself to be. I hope anyone I may have offended with my closed way of thinking will forgive me.
The easiest of the principles I learned this week is from Amy Curry about body Language. Her TED Talk is worth the listen so take a few minutes. It might change your stance.
