I am a pantheist (as I have said before) and that is one of the reasons I easily accept astrology as plausible. If everything in the universe is connected, and everything in the universe is all one consciousness, then of course the positions and movement of the planets will indicate things in my life, and in the world. After all, all of the cells in my body are me, and yet they all live individual lives, but if any part of my body experiences either pleasure or pain, all of me is quite aware of it.
And science tends to back me up. Albert Einstein realized that E = mc2, That is essentially saying that physical matter is just a different form of energy. So that means everything is energy. Ok? We are all made of the same thing. Never mind just us: everything in the universe is made of the same stuff. So I say, why wouldn’t it all be connected?
And if everything is connected, then looking at the positions of the planets and expecting them to reveal something about us makes perfect sense.
And if everything is connected, then in a way, psychic abilities like telepathy make a certain amount of sense, don’t they?
And if everything is connected, that means everyone around you is a part of you. Everyone. Maybe compassion and empathy might be a bit easier than we thought?
But if you still resist the idea that everything is connected spiritually and literally, that’s ok. Everything is interrelated anyway.
In honor of today’s birthday, here is a quote from the spiritual side of Dr. Martin Luther King:
“It really boils down to this: all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied together into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. We are made to live together because of the interrelated structure of reality . . . Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world. This is the way our universe is structured, this is its interrelated quality. We aren’t going to have peace on Earth until we recognize the basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality.”
