#11. Spending Money on Counseling, Especially in Hard Times

My years of study in India, in meditation, and in transpersonal-spiritual areas of life and teachers have led me to be strongly persuaded to viewing humanity as spirit beings using a physical body for emotional, mental, and spiritual growth.Nearly all spiritual teachers and religions have taught that this is true, so I want to live my life to maximize my purpose for living. I must determine my Intention (to become compassion, to live in harmony without anger, or to do whatever I have decided my life needs). But how can I do this?

We generally select ego-indulgence since we don’t know what else to do to bring pleasure. We simply don’t know who we are, why we’re here, what to do, or how to do it. But underneath our personalities we are learning how to contact who we are as spirits. That’s where Astrology comes in.

Astrology is simply a major tool to help us know what we are and what’s going on in our being. Astrology is a guru, a wise crone, an inner guide, a wise teacher who knows everything about us–from the inside out. So we can consult Astrology (or Tarot) in confidence that our Inner Guide will always lead and teach us correctly. For some, this is faith in God(dess).

While some sects have decided Astrology is godless, the truth is that Astrology is woven into the very spiritual fabric of the universe–in the celestial bodies themselves. Planetary vibrations aren’t different from our frequencies or the Earth’s; in fact, they’re identical. The resonance between celestial energies and our own is why Astrology is precise and individual.

WE NEED HELP HERE. Life is hard for most (probably all) of us, because even if we have our material comfort zone taken care of, the emotions, the mind, and “other people” bring dilemmas. Astrology is one of the tools that can put us in touch with our True Self. And probably that’s what life is all about–and helping others to do the same.

Money is needed for the body–food, shelter, medical, etc. But it’s also just as badly needed for the Soul, the mind, and the emotions. And most people don’t really know how to feed these three properly, and perhaps at all.

In hard times we still must buy food, and we still must feed the Soul, mind, and emotions. If we don’t, then we can’t cope. We get unjustifiably angry, or filled with anxiety and confusion, or move towards divorce, isolation, aimless pursuits, and pain.

To live well (with quality and fulfillment) we must deal with ALL our being. That may mean reshuffling priorities to include money for the other necessities of life.

“Love handles most of it, but self-work is still required.”
