The Fate of Astrology and Psychics in the Cruel World of Skeptics
You probably have gotten that email already. The one about the paradox of our times; about how we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints, etc. Further down the line, it goes to say: we love too seldom and hate too often... Such stark, sad extremes and differences in this world we’re living in.
How about science and astrology, two concepts that until now people can’t seem to reconcile. Science and logic rules, while spirituality takes the backseat, as if they’ll ruthlessly cancel each other out once we combine them.
And then there are those who turn their backs on science and devote themselves to spirituality, claiming the Path is clearer there. No harm in that. But wouldn’t it be nicer if we learned not to favor any one extreme over the other, and instead tried to integrate both into our lives? But, really now, how exactly do we stay spiritual and reclaim our innate psychic gifts in these postmodern times?
We don't really have to discuss the weighty subject of post modernism. Of course, spirituality, too, is a heavyweight subject itself, but this doesn't mean "postmodern spirituality" is a hopelessly unmanageable concept.
Look at it this way. Post modernism is about embracing everything in our way, and even those out of our reach. It's about being open to the infinite possibilities and multiplicities of life.
There is a parable in a book by Tom Robbins, about a five-foot depression in the summit of a mountain. Catholics claim it as St. Thomas’ footprint, the Buddhists claim it is Buddha’s, the Hindus claim it is Shiva’s, while Moslem's say it is Adam’s. Geologists meanwhile, say it is simply the result of ancient volcanic action.
The thing is, everyone of them is right. In post modernism, there is No single Truth; everyone has a claim to truth. Science is true, Buddhism is true, Christianity is true, Free trade is true, Spirituality is true, Anything is true. It's just a matter of what truth or truths you choose to work for you.
Being post modernly spiritual doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to abandon all your other firmly-held notions about the world: the lessons taught to us in school, the commercials we see on late-night TV, the music we hear on our headphones.
Spirituality is about not canceling any of those and living an enclosed life, but learning how to harmoniously accord one’s self with the diversity of the world. When we heighten our awareness about ourselves, when we open up and harness our innate psychic abilities, we realize more clearly our connections with everyone and everything else.
We don’t just have to live in a world with just taller buildings and wider freeways. Rather, a world with spacious minds, all-embracing hearts, and freer souls more accepting of our psychic nature.
Our life is all about Choice and the Freedom to do what we choose, (so long we don’t hurt anyone in the process). We have choices in everything. That’s the sweetest part.
