A Vision for Sanity

We see a world where mankind and womankind have learned, beyond all doubt and distraction, that we, both individually and as a whole, are best served by creating a peaceful, compassionate, clean environment for ourselves to live and love in. We see the wisdom in refraining from judging, competing, overpowering, harming and killing one another. We feel the serenity that comes from helping our fellow travelers to rise to their highest potential; to live healthful, creative lives; to hold their anger in check; to find their calling in life; and to care for each other as we would want ourself to be cared for.

In the same way, we envision a world where we have purified our waters, cleansed our air, cleaned up our trash, begun to love the Earth and all Her plant and animal creatures, brought forth healthy foods, and blessed every other human being who comes our way. As a result of these changes in our behavior, we have brought sanity back to the peoples of the Earth, always to honor and protect it – and never to leave it again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“As an individual gets smaller and smaller and goes on down the dwindling spiral, he believes that exterior forces are more and more dangerous to him. Now, the saw* which is inserted at this point is really more of a saw than an axiom: A man is as sane as he believes himself to be dangerous to his environment. See, that’s a very low-level look, isn’t it? But he is as sane as he believes himself dangerous to his environment. That’s very true of Man.”

A Vision for Respecting Others

We see a world where we have all risen up and out of our impulse to feel or think that we are better than anyone else. We envision everyone having completely seen through our old patterns where we used to think that our way is the best way, or that our way is the only way. Thus, we have entirely stopped attempting to impose our will on those around us. Instead, we honor the uniquely created, personal path of each person we meet, and we do not interfere with it.

This single, simple response – that we now see all people as equal but different, and we allow them to live their lives without our meddling or interruption – has changed our world entirely. We now respect the religions, the beliefs, the politics, the values, and the evolutionary choices of all our fellow travelers, knowing that each person’s path has within it the means for taking them to their highest expression of joy and fulfillment.

“That’s the whole process of selling things, too. You get the fellow to agree that it’s a nice day and he’s done for. If you really know what you’re doing, you agree—‘It’s a nice day’ and he says, ‘Yes’—he’s sunk. Because you go from the fact that it is a nice day to the fact that you were on his front porch. And you go from there to the fact that he doesn’t have very many magazines. And you go from there to the effect that you are selling magazines. Each time he’ll agree with one of these points.

“The next darn thing you know, then you’ll say, ‘Then you’d like to buy one of these magazines, wouldn’t you?’ and he’ll say, ‘Yes’ and he’ll reach into his pocket and give you the half crown. It’s really—that’s what salesmanship is. It’s just, get somebody to start agreeing and the next thing you know, why, he agrees past the point of no return. He’s got his name on a contract or something.” 

 

 

On the whole, I find Americans to be optimistic, which is a healthy way to be. However, with the international and national issues we are contending with right now, many clients have expressed feelings of unease and worry. Certainly, being unsettled by all the political and social problems we are currently facing is understandable, but I still believe the best approach it is to keep a positive focus.

Maintaining a hopeful focus isn’t always easy to do, especially when the news regularly reminds you of the turmoil in the world with some of it being closer to us than others. That’s why I want to share some tips with you that I regularly give to clients about keeping a positive outlook.

First and foremost you need to develop an attitude of gratitude. Situations don’t seem as worrisome when you regularly remind yourself of the good parts of your life, as opposed to simply focusing on the negative or worrisome areas. For example, taking a few moments day to think about the things you cherish or find fulfilling will make your days brighter.

Next, finding a way to limit negative thought patterns can help as well. No one goes through life without some anxiety or anxiousness cropping up now and again, and sometimes those thoughts are pointing out something you need to address. If you happen to catch yourself going into an anxious spin over something, think about what is making you uncomfortable. Maybe you should limit your time watching or listening to the news on the tele or radio. Maybe you can find a way to alter a situation that is more personal so that you don’t feel so uneasy or out of balance. Or maybe you could think about what is unhinging you and then alter it so that it doesn’t feel so overwhelming or even consider sharing your worries with someone close to you so that you don’t have to bear the burden alone.

Another trick I use to combat uncertainties, which is often related to things that haven’t happened or potential scenarios we have no control over, is to imagine or re-envision a different more positive outcome to replace the foreboding one. Once you stop unpleasant or worrisome thoughts, you stop the flow of this troubling energy, and by immediately replacing the anxious thought with a positive one, you put yourself in more positive frame of mind.

One final step to take into keeping a positive focus is to take good care of yourself. If you get enough sleep and regular exercise, your outlook will improve drastically.

With a little practice I believe you will find that maintaining a positive frame of mind during uneasy times will be even easier than you could have imagined. Now, I hope you will think about these thoughts as you read through your forecast for the week. This week does usher in a substantial astrological event that will come with some changes and tension. Be sure to read your forecast carefully. I hope you read through my suggestions for taking advantage of this powerful celestial energy.
