Audio transcript:
"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."

Sun in Aquarius

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!"

Castle Snowfall

From the Oracle of Dana:

"Each snow crystal manifests its individual pattern of Deity.
And this is what is meant by the immanence of the Divine Spirit."
