Beyond the frontiers of the Mind

You thought you knew because you read it in a book

Painting by Quincey Tahoma

The words fed to the masses and traded for faith

The ideas of the prophet translated as memes

Blinding beliefs sold as merchandise

Making profit on the devotees.

Beyond the frontiers of dogma,

there is an unrestrained freedom

but to get there, you have to forget about

the uncivilised freedom of the old school rock star.

What you thought was the truth

is only the beginning of a lie.

Go back to the body, go back to the rhythm of the heart.

Loose yourself in the purifying fires of not knowing with the mind.

Faith is a big word

Freedom is even bigger

The Word distracts you from the truth

into the exquisite pleasures of description.

While the real you sits quietly knowing,

filled with every single spark that shines forth from the Sun.

The teacher shapes you into an anxious contradiction.

A skilled puppet

Who is in charge?

Is it the Donkey or the Spirit Rider

The Exaltation of the Sun

We are still in the season of Aries:

Fire + Will Power + Trail Blazing!

It is all available to you. Aries is considered the first sign of the Zodiac. It is associated with Spring, Growth, Individuality, the Ego, the planet Mars which means that Aries is more intuitive and instinctual than intellectual.
The Ram also symbolizes the courage and boldness to follow ones creative urges.

On April 8/9 we have Jupiter in Leo going direct. For more on Jupiter going direct read this great article from Ichrak at Atlas Astrology: http://atlasastrology.com/…/jupiter-stations-direct-april-…/

While Jupiter will be moving forward in the fire sign of Leo, the Sun will also be at 19 degrees of Aries, in the exact degree of its exaltation. There are 360 degrees in the Zodiac and each degree holds a unique meaning or message to add layer to our interpretation.
An exaltation means that the planet is comfortable and finds easy expression. The Sun (ruler of Leo) represents vitality, spirit and individuality and therefore when traveling through Aries will be most comfortable finding motivation, courage and determination.

So if you have been holding off to get started on a creative idea you might get the celestial kick needed. There are potent firery energies available.

Here is the Sabian Symbol interpretation of the 19º of Aries from Dane Rhudyar:

”THE “MAGIC CARPET” OF ORIENTAL IMAGERY”

KEYNOTE: The use of creative imagination.

”A way of life refusing a hectic involvement in social competition and waste-producing overproduction allows for the development of unattached and transcendent understanding. The static floor (carpet) on which man’s feet (symbols of understanding) rest can become transformed into the means for great flights of imagination and super-physical perception. The period of rest from outwardly directed activity bound to collective normality presents the creative mind with the possibility of surveying in dreams the totality of the present-day social situation, thus “to see whole.”
