The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, symbolizing generally accepted beliefs—orthodoxy—Adam and Eve symbolizing making man in our image, the Garden of Eden, nature, who or what is God is my question?
After Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit—disobeyed God’s command, or generally accepted beliefs—when they heard God approaching, they hid in the bushes. God called Adam out. Adam told God he hid because he was ashamed of being naked. God demanded: “Who told thee that thou wast naked?” What followed was not a pretty picture. I take it that naked meant knowing good and evil, or being anyone who is not orthodox.
My question: Why did God create man with reason and logic? My thought is that anything I might think is good that doesn’t agree with the orthodox is evil. Is that reasonable? No. I’m forced to conclude that what I believe is good for me is good, as long as I don’t impose on others. It jibes with Jesus’ idea of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you, and fits with God giving me reason and logic. So far it has worked for me.
I find that orthodoxy, the establishment, is always a day late and a dollar short. Isn’t it an undeniable fact that the orthodoxy in place is driving us into bankruptcy morally, spiritually, and fiscally? Dare we eat the forbidden fruit? The orthodoxy juxtapositions the question—places both sides together and compares, building a straw man as evidence that the unorthodox solution is evil. This divides the orthodox and unorthodox. A house divided cannot long stand. With the orthodox in control, we’re not long for this world.
We’ve been in the Age of Pisces for the past 2,000 years, the symbol of which is two attached fish swimming in opposite directions; you could say the orthodox and unorthodox directions. Jesus, who was born at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, challenged the Orthodoxy. (He turned over the money changers’ tables.) Pisceans are easily impressed. Although they desperately want to do the right thing, we read in Astrologer’s Handbook, they are weak willed. Jesus told Peter, his most faithful follower, on his last night with his disciples, that before the cock crowed Peter would deny him three times. The weak willed, under the Orthodoxy, freed Barabbas, a convicted murderer, and crucified the unorthodox Jesus. Jesus knowing the Piscean nature, said “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.”
We read in The Rising Sign, under “Aquarius Rising,” (I’m Aquarius rising) that I can be the one to bring back information that has been lost for centuries; that I can be the forerunner in setting style, discovering new methods, and showing the rest of humanity the way. We find in numerology, coincidentally, that my Path of Destiny number is “7.” I psychically separate the true from the false and can discover that reveal some of the mysteries of life to a waiting world. That’s what I’m here to do, as follows:
The new rules governing the global economic restructuring revolve around, first wealth: it flows directly from innovation, not optimization. For instance, saving the biggest because they are too big to fail is as nonsensical and destructive as anyone can get. Under the new rules, we give the individual the opportunity to show what he can do. Wealth is formed by perfecting the unknown. Second, the ideal environment for cultivating the unknown is to nurture the supreme agility and nimbleness of networks. Third, the domestication of the unknown inevitably means, not bailing them out, but abandoning the highly successful known—letting them die on the vine. I got this from Kevin Kelly’s “New Rules for the New Economy” in Wired magazine in September 1997, long before the bumbling othodoxy bailed out Wall Street. Yet here we are with New York Times best seller, Joseph E. Stiglitz, winner of the nobel prize in economics, telling us that free markets don’t work, and Chuck Leddy, Boston Globe, telling us Stiglitz’s Freefall is a must read.
We are now entering the Age of Aquarius. Compare the Age of Pisces, an age of orthodoxy and impressionable, weak willed people with Aquarians, strong willed and determined. The age of Piscean orthodoxy, with its brooding omnipresence in the sky, rather than correct prevalent injustices, rather than become enlightened, has circumscribed justice and clung to the past. The Scofield Reference Bible guides us to the truth of the matter. In the foot notes of Matthew at 6:33 (But seek ye first the kingdom of God), the kingdom of God is to be distinguished from the kingdom of heaven.
When you look at all the evidence, perhaps the Tea Party’s progressive opposition should take a hard look at where they are heading. Reverend C. I. Scofield offers in the Introduction that the real meaning of progressive is the order of the divine dealings of God with humanity. He offers that we are here with “increasing purpose,” which runs through and links together the ages.
Astrologer’s Handbook tells us that Pisceans are influenced by external factors. Hey you guys, your future depends on whether you learn to exclude external control and explore and control your own nature. We are going back to natural law, the background of America’s Constitution. Welcome to the Age of Aquarius.
