JP

Robert,

Wonderful piece.

"Doors tend to open when we're not struggling against the tide of our own evolution."

Perhaps there is no more important lesson than this!

caliban

Philosophy of life . . . As a youngster I saw a tv adaptation of a Eugene O Neill play, could have been The Ice Man Cometh, not sure. Anyway, alot of men getting drunk at the bar. One was babbling about his misery. He always wanted to . . . but he never did, and then he continued with the excuses. When I heard that, I decided that is never going to be me. So I have always followed my heart. That philosophy has taken me to many places and situations. I keep my lifestyle as simple as possible to allow my heart to take the lead. I am 53 years old and starting down a new path again. It is never too late.

I recently ran into an astrological twin. Same birth hospital, same classroom, different parents. Uncanny. What she was doing years ago, I am doing now. And what I was pursuing years ago, she is doing now. Must be some kind of housal difference. We have both forsaken the irresistable but elusive south node moon men. And we both got the itchy feet and the heart that can't say no to the go.

anon

I make lots of money (six figures) and am well regarded in my career. I think leaving such a career is almost harder than not having any real success at something and branching out. I'd like to do something less intense and time consuming someday. Maybe even making pizzas.

J. Sue Gagliardi

Hi Robert,

As usual, you hit me where I smile and say, "Right on!"

Being philosophical gets us where we need to go to be fulfilled.

WarriorLady

Thank you for this!

Valerie

Your story is indeed inspirational! It's so easy to lose perspective and become discouraged. There were several periods in my life when I was living on a shoestring or something similarly dire. My dad said when I was very little he didn't know where our next hot dog was coming from. He was in law school, my mother was home with three kids, the usual struggling young family. But I was not aware of it. I don't think we were really poor, overall, because we always had a nice little Christmas tree every year, and family and friends to love. We were kind of like the Bob Cratchets. Even if it would be great to have a ton of money, there is so much more to life than that. Most people don't really get it until they look behind and realize how much there is to be thankful for. As usual, thank you for your wisdom! :)

Starlook

Nice one! Thanks!

Carson

Thank you for the wisdom of your perspective and point of view, Robert. Infinite blessings in helping us move into a broader vision...

Heli

Thanks!

I am a happy single mother (but usually silent of that fact, because not all understand my happiness;)

It was sad to understand that a single is happier than a couple. But there is love out there, which doesn't need partnership: astrology, science, pet etc.

kachina

You are singing my tune, Robert, and I am smiling. :)

I awoke one day a few years past, and I 'heard': ~Every interaction(or situation,in context to your article), be it with Friend or 'Foe', is an opportunity to define One's Self.~

I have been living it ever since.

Thanks for sharing your wise reflection. kachina

Maneesha

Robert,

Signing in here to tell you I admire your perspective.

It takes maturity to understand life and its opportunities. Thanks for sharing your wisdom and insights. I am sure it will teach many of us to evolve into our higer selves.
I agree with you on being philosophical; I think it is a necessity to develop a philosophical attitude in today's times.


Pepper

Thank you again, Robert. What a lovely piece.

caliban

ah anon, you raise a good question about the measure of success.

In the meantime, I find myself asking, when was the last time anon made a homemade pizza. I see anon moonlighting and a company is born Moonlight Pizza.

I've know a couple of 6 figure people who got back down to basics and they still ended up making 6 figures again.

Good food for thought!

Mariana

Thank you!

PSW

Robert,
your philisophical clarity has been invaluable to me in the past few years now. Realizing that circumstances are only temporary and that one needs to claim a larger perspective and context to see there own value is essential. We all need others to shine a light and you shine a very bright one.
Thank You,
Namaste

wild horse running

This speaks to me at just the right moment...Thank you Robert.

Can philisophical also be optimism? That is coming up from the depths of my Scorpio
subconcious...of things that are getting thrown on the burning pile...a tendency in the past
to look/see things in a pessimistic/negative view...and then expect it....

I can feel a hairball coming up for "purging".....

Robert

Hi JP - Thanks. Much of life is like learning how to swim in quicksand. If we calm down we can find ways to move through the muck. If we struggle and panic we sink. I find most struggling is between the lower ego and our Higher Self.

Hi caliban - Perhaps there is much to learn from your astro-double who has mirrored your experience, since they took the road you didn't but still wound up in the same place. And it is true, that if it's in one's Dharma to be a "6 figure" type of person, then we'll find it regardless of the route.

Hi anon - It is true that it's difficult to quit that which seems to go well. Perhaps you're getting what you need to do something else at the right time, and so at this point you don't have to quit anything, but instead plan for the future to the extent that is possible.

Hi J Sue - I do believe that being philosophical about many things helps us to find perspective and some measure of peace even as the storms swirl around us.

Hi WarriorLady - You're most welcome.

Hi Valerie - Yes, I stopped being poor when I left the family home and made my life on my own terms. Then I may not have had much, but I ceased to be poor. And of course, I knew I had gifts and character qualities that I needed to make it in the world, so realistically, how poor could I be?

Hi Starlook - Sure. You're welcome.

Hi Carson - "And we all shine on, like the Moon and the stars and the Sun...."

Hi Heli - Sure. Sometimes single parenting can feel sad, but not as sad as living with someone who jams your gears, jams your child's gears, and is indifferent to anything other than their own appetites. It's nice to have a partner, as long as they ARE a partner.

Hi kachina - As I noted in "A Time to Remember" we must not compare ourselves to others, since we each have our own unique destiny to pursue. That self-definition shows us our higher Way.

Hi Maneesha - Glad you value maturity, since that's the confirmation that we have in fact learned from our experiences and have chosen to grow in wisdom rather than stay stuck in immature perspectives.

Hi Pepper - You're most welcome. I thought more than a few could identify with at least a little of what I've been through.

Hi Mariana - You're most welcome.

Hi PSW - We all can learn much from each other's experiences. That's why from time to time I eschew the technical astrology and just share some of my life.

Hi wild horse running - Being philosophical can lead to optimism, or resignation, or transcendent perspectives, depending. Negative expectancies often do yield negative conditions. That's why generating Bodhichitta, or "goodwill," or positivity, is one tool we have for turning away from unhelpful expectations.

Is It Safe

Thankyou so much for that piece - that's exactly what I needed to hear today :-)

kaali

Thank you Robert! You are absolutely right. I just found out how to listen my inner soul's calling and improving and using my skills. The results might be surprising sometimes ;)

Robert

Hi Is it safe - Sometimes when I get out of my own way an article comes that seems perfect for the times. Glad it was perfect!

Hi kaali - Listening to the inner voice is usually the best thing to do in order to get oriented to what really matters. Then it's all a question of techniques of externalization.

administration case concept
