"Why dwell on evil, or anything unpleasant at all? Ignore it. Turn to the good, the Real. Life is but a fleeting shadow where we learn experience. Fix our souls from Heaven and nothing can touch us, and we bless all those whose lives touch ours. We heal, not through gazing upon the injury - the psychological sickness - but rather see the person as whole and well. And so they become, for we acknowledge the Divine in them, offspring of the Deities."
Blessings of the Sun in Aquarius! The Shrine of Aquarius at the Foundation
Center Temple is dedicated to the Japanese Sun Goddess, Amaterasu No Kami.
Olivia Robertson wrote in the book, "Sophia":
"Let us visualise the constellation called by the Ancients, Aquarius. For
to our forebears the dome of the sky was a picture of living hieroglyphs set
there by the Deities. From their starry homes they deemed that their Teachers
came to teach them through the language of symbols. So they offered the Deities
their beautiful images, which they saw as they lay on desert sands or groves,
gazing upon the sky at night. And they offered the Deities pictures that they
painted through their visionary eyes. They imagined a great white winged horse,
Pegasus, flying through the sky above a starry sea. Below him in the sea of
heaven swam two intertwining fish, Pisces. And from a stream entering the sea
they discerned a maiden whom they called Hebe or Ganymeda, or a youth, Ganymede
drawing the stream's water into a pitcher and then pouring forth the water in
bounty, in two starry streams. . .
"And the Star Deities delighted in
the rich imaginings of youthful humanity, springing as dreams do from their
original genius. When Deities visited aspiring humans, they used these ever
changing pictures crossing the starry skies as an unfolding scroll of symbols.
They instructed humanity through these symbols, so unveiling Divine Truths. They
taught that every star is linked to each and every creature by means of
interweaving radiations from the auras of Star Deities. The greater contains the
lesser, which is of its substance, and nothing is alien in the universe. The
lesser is a microcosm of the greater. In this earth is buried our past, and our
future extends to the stars!"
