Oprah Winfrey came from obscure and impoverished roots, but she worked her way to the top through sheer and dogged self-effort. Configurations in her horoscope are testimony to her gifts, stamina and all-around destined good fortune. Her chart also reflects, through strong Oppositions and Squares, the stresses and personal struggles that were her fate to overcome, so that she might manifest the wonder of her potentials “written in her stars.”
CARDINAL NATURAL DISPOSITION
Defined by the Mercury/Pluto and Moon/Jupiter Oppositions.
Oprah’s horoscope forms ideal planetary configurations in several ways. There is the presence of both Fixed and Mutable Oppositions which causes a dueling demand for attention between the differing interests defined by the two triplicities of the Fixed and Mutable signs. To resolve the dilemma of warring interests the one Triplicity that does not appear though an Opposition Aspect, defines the Natural Disposition, or what the native of the chart should be inclined to make their most important interest in life. For Oprah, it is the missing Cardinal Triplicity of planets that points the way for her to be interested in promoting herself as a personality, and to be politically minded with an interested in solving problems and crises she herself experiences and also to assist others in means and ways of resolving difficulties.
The Mutable Natural Disposition defines a person with an interest in the welfare of others above oneself. The Fixed Disposition inclines a person to rise above both the interest in oneself first or the cares and needs of others, to bring them to an interest in ideas and the meaning of life through a study of principles.
SPLAY TEMPERAMENT TYPE
Defined by the geometric patterns the planets form from the Earth’s perspective.
There is a distinct and highly developed Splay Temperament Type in Oprah’s chart and a Grand Trine that connects the three segments of her pyramiding personality represented by the more evolved Splay pattern. The personality builds with a continuous momentum toward a profound and highly unique self-expression. In Oprah’s case it is an air Grand Trine that moves her in the direction of intellect with a desire to share ideas of great import.
MODE OF SELF-INTEGRATION
Defined by two out of four Planetary Pairs in Major Aspect.
Oprah’s Mode of Self-Integration is Conjunctive Activity, shown by the Sun/Moon and Uranus/Neptune major aspects. Mars/Venus and Uranus/Neptune These allow her to bring all the vastly wide experiences she encounters together to lead her life story.
Oprah’s vital T-Cross has Mars in Point Focus in the Sabian Degree of Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one man – this being a most literal expression of what has transpired throughout her career.
SCORPIO 24 Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one man This is a symbol of recognition for intellectual attainment, and of the supremacy of spiritual over other and more tangible forms of authority among men. There is here an emphasis on the fact that any higher realization must be brought to earth both for its initial confirmation and its ultimate sharing among the many, and that aspiration is meaningless until it achieves some practical focus in those realms and events with which people in general are familiar. The keyword is APPEAL. When positive, the degree is an almost spectacular ability to enlist the higher potentialities of everyone for some practical need of the moment, and when negative, indiscriminate and carefree gullibility.
The many Squares in the chart, shown by the red lines and the T-Cross with Mars reveal the chart’s propensity to make use of emotional and physical struggle as way of moving the native toward self-development. In her youth, Oprah experienced abuse of several kinds, that only encouraged her to overcome all the blocks that normally are set-backs to others less endowed with advanced features that Oprah’s natal horoscope exemplifies.
ABSENCE OF EARTH SIGNS
No planets in earth signs creates the need to find a security in one’s self.
Oprah’s life reveals that the potentials given to a person from the horoscope at birth can indeed be fulfilled. Many charts have profound configurations, but there often can be less ability on the part of an individual to manifest good results. In Oprah’s case, her life efforts have been a match for extraordinary features her chart represents.
The birth time for this natal horoscope was given by Mr. Masters himself in the 1980s. Masters is a radio talk-show host and ex-hypnotist who believes everyone is already hypnotized and needs to wake up and have their lives transformed by a simple method of meditation that leads a person away from anger and resentment to a peaceful inner connection with God. This is accomplished through remembering, as he states in his meditation exercise, to “Overlook and make allowances and be outspoken with firmness, kindness and patience,” whenever one is confronted with stressful and challenging situations. The main thing is not to react with anger when provoked. That is the meaning of “turning the other cheek” as stated in the Christian bible. Anger is actually the true nature of an animal’s response to a threat. Humans on the other hand are meant to transform their responses to a higher mindedness and refrain from emotional upsets, reactions and retaliations.
Roy claims to have never been overtaken by the emotion of anger, and believes that anger is the father of all human difficulties and suffering. Masters teaches that man needs to find God and correct the woman in his life to stop tempting him to fall from Love to need her. Masters believes that a woman tempts a man to need her through offering sex in exchange for personal ego worship and attention. In this way she stands in the place of God and blocks man from a connection with Higher Reality if this syndrome is not corrected. Masters admonishes men to correct women and tell them to “put the apple down!” and stop tempting them away from themselves.
Masters has authored numerous books, one of which is The Adam and Eve Syndrome, which explores the negative interaction between men and women and reveals the substance of the trade-off involved; women giving their bodies in exchange for “love.” This particular book, among others, offers a real solution to readers with an understanding that all human beings need to be fulfilled from within, by a connection with the Creator, and not to be satisfied by a use of each other that is never a replacement for true understanding and purposeful living. To learn more about Masters and his mission, visit The Foundation of Human Understanding online: fhu.com.
The tri-wheel here shows that at age 88 Masters will be having a once-in-a-lifetime Pluto Transit exactly Opposite his Natal Pluto, and it will do a Station Direct at 14 Capricorn 56 on September 27, 2016. This is 26 days after the Solar Eclipse at 9 Virgo 21 that will be within the 5 degree orb allowance of a Conjunction with Masters’ Natal Moon in Virgo at 11 Virgo 27. Neptune is Transiting Opposite the Natal Moon, and will Station to go Direct at 9 Pisces 14 on November 20, 2016. Transit Saturn is also approaching its third Saturn Return in Masters’ chart, due the 13th of December 2016. One day later Mars will return to its exact Natal position as well.
These aspects described are all strong indications that point to an equally strong physical counterpart. The message has gone out, thanks to Masters’ dedicated teachings. The messenger has done well, playing his part in the lives of all who know him and follow his inspired advice. The Sabian Symbol for Masters’ Venus in oriental appearance and indicator of career approach is 19 Pisces, A master instructing his pupil, and is literally what the man has done for the better part of his life. The symbol mimics his own surname and is uncanny, and an interesting fact is that it was shortened and translated from Obermeister; meaning above the master. Truly, Master is the foundation of understanding and teaches followers to find the same in themselves.
PISCES 19 A master instructing his pupilThis is a symbol of the unlimited potentiality of existence in any larger dimension, and of the demand of human intelligence for the self-refinement and self-orientation by which a greater understanding is possible. Life entreats the individual to employ its privileges and enjoy its bounty, and gives every encouragement to that initiative of spirit by which he may be led to do so. He finds that personality comes into its own as it is able to direct its own destiny. The keyword is ELUCIDATION. When positive, the degree is high executive ability through patient investigation and genuine psychological insight, and when negative, a desire to live by rule and a conceit of empty knowledge.
Master’s Sun degree at 13 Aries is An unsuccessful bomb explosion. This symbol shows his destiny and Purpose (keyword for the Sun) is to defuse the anger of humankind. He encourages this through the dialogue in his meditation recordings. His Jupiter degree is Brownies dancing in the setting sun. This is one of the few “elfin” degrees revealing an otherworldliness of character that he shows to those who have “eyes to see and ears to hear.” These special degrees of brownies, fairies and other elfin creatures, reveal a life where the native cannot live for himself alone, but must exist as a special incarnation of some social ideal. Natal Jupiter and natal Sun are Conjunct. Jupiter is the guru, leader, teacher and protector, working alongside the solar-self’s Purpose to transform otherwise volatile situations into peaceful resolutions.
Masters’ Temperament Type is a SPLAY which is the most evolved of the seven possible Types. Saturn is the Reins planet in High Focus. Saturn’s process of meditation brings self-awareness, self-control and wisdom to the practitioner, and it delivers these better attributes through Masters’ lens of traditional, religious perspective. You’ll hear Masters mention Christianity here and there in his message, which the practitioner can either accept or reject, depending on their own personal beliefs. Regardless, the message has a secret ingredient that benefits society in general, far beyond what one would expect and can imagine, and that is centered in Masters’ meditative mantra, with the instruction to “overlook on the spot and be outspoken with firmness, kindness and patience.”
Throughout the long history of humanity’s presence on Earth, great minds have attempted to answer the mysteries of life; its origin, its purpose. As these penetrating minds gazed outward into the vast visible universe, and searched inside to view its micro-components, they were participating in the creation of science and religion as we know it today. All that they discovered has developed over millennia to draw conclusions that are then assumed to be the Laws of Physics. But our unpredictable universe defies status quo and continually challenges us to find ever-new answers to age-old questions. We are constantly on the threshold of new discoveries and so it is to our advantage that we hold off on our final judgments as to the ultimate nature things, and try to live in a flexible, mindful state of awareness; always being receptive to the new, always ready to assimilate unexpected new perspectives. An example in astrology where the laws of the physical world break down is in the retrograde motion of planets. See blog post: Retrograde Planets Prove Universe is Mind
Astrologers look for indications in a natal chart that reflect the realities of a person’s life and what makes them think, feel and respond the way they do. One of the most intriguing charts of prominent spiritual leaders is that of the Dalai Lama. How spiritual potentials reveal themselves is a special type of analysis, and the birth chart of the Dalai Lama shows several obvious signs of personal evolution. The interpretation of the chart of the Dalai Lama will begin with the 16 Point Analysis, from The Essentials of Astrological Analysis by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones. Only a sampling of the points will be covered.
THE NATURAL DISPOSITION
The Dalai Lama has Oppositions in both Fixed and Mutable signs, and so the emphasis of interest lies in the missing quadrature, and is known as Negative Cardinal, because of the lack of its presence in the horoscope. A compensation takes place to draw attention to immediate circumstances and is crises oriented. This is something that easily points to the Chinese invasion of Tibet during the very early years of the Dalai Lama’s life. Cardinal emphasis is also politically minded, and for many years it fell upon the Dalai Lama to be the leader in the strategy that would govern his people and bring them safely into their present living circumstances.
The two Oppositions draw the mind’s focus out to two distinct interests, and cause a shift of attention to “this, and now that” interest. The dilemma of having to choose between several involvements is resolved through attention to the immediate demands of the present moment which is a Cardinal characteristic. It is the missing quadrature of Cardinal signs and its need for attention to immediate critical issues. The Cardinal signs are related to the active 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th houses. Because of its immediacy and focus in the now, it is ready, restless and opportunistic. In the Dalai Lama’s case, this allows him to take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself to express his views on the principles (Fixed) of Buddhism, and to integrate those principles in active relationship (Mutable) with others. The excitation of the Cardinal impulse imbues the native with a vivacious energy that endears him to all who come in contact with him.
THE TEMPERAMENT TYPE
The overall outlook and general response to life is determined by the Temperament Type. There are seven Types or patterns, three of which have been in use since ancient times. They are the Bundle, the Bowl and the See-Saw. In the mid 1900s Marc Edmund Jones added the Bucket, the Splash, the Locomotive and the Splay and with far more detailed descriptions. The Dalai Lama’s horoscope is the Locomotive Temperament and this Type, along with the Splay, are more complex and evolved because they are base on a division of the circle by three. The others are based on a division of the circle by two.
The Locomotive builds on the Grand Trine in this chart and it encourages a pyramiding development of personality. The soul projects itself through the Cutting planet Saturn, so that the Dalai Lama can be seen as following traditions and limitations of a very specific doctrine. Those who are spiritual without holding to tight traditions are more likely under the influence of Uranus. The Locomotive is characteristic of a powerful driving personality which is set and supported by the ever-spiraling and revolving Grand Trine. The open Trine projects the personality and goals onto others, whether for good or evil. In the Dalai Lama’s case, the mission is to help others understand more deeply the wisdom of Buddhism and its focus on disciplined meditation, contemplation and compassion. All these attributes closely relate to the attributes of Saturn, and in the sign of Pisces, it brings the topic of compassion perpetually into the Dalai Lama’s message to the multitudes.
The planets are divided into pairs, Sun/Moon of Vitality, Jupiter/Saturn of Motivation, Mars/Venus of Efficiency and Uranus/Neptune of Significance. Mercury and Pluto are supernumerary, with Mercury belonging to Efficiency and Pluto belonging to the Significant pair. It is favorable to have two of the pairs in major aspect and two not, so that the individual has only to integrate two modes of being in order to have ease in self-determination. The chart of the Dalai Lama has all pairs aspected and this causes the psyche to become overloaded with possibilities, and it creates a plethora of outer involvements that one needs to integrate into a cohesive whole. There is often a feeling of being lost within too much stimulus and opportunity, but the Mode of Self-Integration can help to focus the attention on a specific direction so as to counter any disintegration caused by amplified stimulation.
THE MODE OF SELF-INTEGRATION in a chart that has all pairs aspected has to be determined through symmetry and weight, rather than by major aspect. In the Dalai Lama’s case the Jupiter/Saturn and Uranus/Neptune are forming an interesting symmetrical pattern. Both pairs are in Trine with their partners and the members of the separate pairs are in Sextile with one of the other’s pair and Opposite the other. A complex but extremely interesting configuration. Out of the six possible Modes of Integration the Dalai Lama is Subjective Function. This means that ultimately the Dalai Lama keeps his own council. He goes within to confer with his own wisdom and response to outer stimulus with a comprehension based on his own experience. A person with Objective Function is capable and even craves a project to be done by the dictates of outside influence. Not so with Subjective Function. Direction of the life emerges from within and a belief in oneself and ones own abilities takes precedence over the demands and influence of others. Subjective Function is very fitting for an individual who must stand as an example of how all souls should conduct themselves.
THE FOCAL DETERMINATORS
The Grand Water Trine is a Focal Determinator that has very tight orbs in the chart of the Dalai Lama. The free-flowing water element encourages the native to expand outward, embrace and be absorbed by all with whom he comes in contact – that is the nature of water; to permeate. The Grand Trine is an integral part of the Locomotive pattern in this chart, because Saturn is both the Cutting Planet which leads the others into the empty space of a Trine, but it also is one of the three planets involved in the Grand Trine itself. Because Saturn is leading into an empty space with no other planet interfering with its energy, it becomes High Focus – and by that it becomes an important Focal Determinator. Saturn becomes super-powered and its archetypal meaning becomes amplified. Saturn, along with its partner Jupiter are the planets of Motivation. The inner stirrings and conscious sensitivity to right and wrong are one of the attributes of self-awareness. Meditation is a reflective process which illuminates one’s behavior to itself. When one experiences conscious pain, it is because the planet Saturn’s energy/intelligence is activated within the soul. Surrendering to the humbling process relieves the tension. Fighting the truth sets the stage for escapism to avoid a painful conscience. When one accepts limitations they become stepping stones and guidelines for success. Jupiter as the positive and outward ambassador of the personality works hand-in-hand with Saturn’s double-checking on the continuous correction process of the soul. The Dalai Lama performs specific spiritual practices, meditation, mind development and control that are sympathetic with the meaning of the planet Saturn as well as with his Tibetan culture.
The keyword for Saturn in normal strength is Sensitiveness, but when emphasized by being Point or High Focus, the Keyword becomes SHREWD. The Dalai Lama has had to use his subjective ingenuity toward the Chinese who oppose his birthright. He has had to be Shrewd in the way he opposes his “enemies” and he does this by applying his Buddhist principles of forgiveness, non-violence and compassion toward those who have infringed upon his domain. True to the nature of the expanding water element, the Dalai Lama’s exile has been to the world’s advantage. Had he been able to rule and lead in his own country without interference from outside sources he would not have had such an overwhelming influence for good upon the world.
Often astrologers believe that the Grand Trine can be a detriment, because of its nature to groove into patterns of negativity as well as positive habitual behavior. What the Grand Trine actually represents is degree of harmony achieved. Not understanding this can deplete its potentials for good. With the Dalai Lama’s practice and deep understanding, this Focal Determinator gives him an outlet for continuous manifestation of enlightening reason as a response to potential daily challenges that the Opposition from Saturn to Moon and Neptune represent.
The Grand Trine shows flow and ease in manner and there is added power to this particular Grand Trine, because of the Locomotive Temperament Type to which it gives structure. There is a driving force of the personality, but the caution of Saturn at the helm allows for precise dissemination of wisdom.
The water signs are permeable, receptive and sensitive to feeling and especially compassion. Saturn in the compassionate sign of Pisces is the Leading planet and so is High Focus and Shrewd in its manifestation of his position as spiritual leader of the Tibetan people in exile. He has to remain strong in his beliefs and practices and present a message that encourages his people to adhere to their ancient roots. Along with Saturn being in High Focus the sign of Pisces is also amplified by its Leading into the empty Trine of the locomotive. If the birth time is correct than the placement of the Leading planet and sign are in the all-important 10th house of Authority among men. Revealing a true leader of mankind.
Saturn as the unchallenged focus of the chart is in Trine with Jupiter and creates a Loose Destiny (a feature of self-determination) that allows the Dalai Lama an easy association with everyone effortlessly. This one of the planetary pairs is in company with the other three pairs in major aspect which has been mentioned above.
The Dalai Lama was discovered and enthroned when he was just 5 years old, corresponding to Progressed Jupiter Stationary Direct shown in the ephemeris for July 12, 1935 – 5 or 6 years after birth. Jupiter represents personal advancement as the paternal leader-to-be. This position of leadership becomes the good fortune for all people worldwide.
Progressed Stations are a halt in time and space to change and rearrange things, within and without, in the greater journey of continuous growth toward understanding and truth.
The official enthronement ceremony as political leader of Tibet took place on November 17, 1950 also in Lhasa. The Progressed chart shows dynamic Saturn completing the Opposition to Natal Moon as promised in the Natal potentials. The exact aspect brings the leader into his responsibilities at an early age.
The Sabian Symbol for the powerful Leading Natal Saturn is Men seeking illumination.
This is an amazing testimony to the literal manifestation of the Symbols. Pisces 11 degrees, page 311 Sabian Symbols in Astrology: This is the symbol of the immortality of man as dramatized in some form of an apostolic succession, or living tradition of spiritual achievement. The divine spirit is fundamentally a matrix of itself, since its continuance depends on its unswerving maintenance of the purity of motive and expression it has contributed to the humanity it has created in its own image. . . . When positive, the degree is high accomplishment in an effective alignment with ultimate reality.
The apostolic succession mentioned in the symbol gives conformation to the way in which the Dalai Lamas have always been chosen. They are chosen from a line of spiritual descendants, and it is uncanny how this symbol has described this unique detail of the procedure.
July 17, 1989 was the year representing the culmination of a life’s work when the Dalai Lama won the Nobel Prize for Peace. This was a very special year for the Dalai Lama in that the very important Progressed Lunation is in its exact core and very close to a following Progressed Lunar Return. These aspects are also Conjunct his Natal Part of Fortune at 5 degrees Virgo of A man dreaming of fairies.
According to Marc Edmund Jones; “the Part of Fortune is your special horizon of success and it will give a significant insight into the potentials of accomplishment through the sign, house and symbolical degree where it is found.”
5 degrees Virgo is unique in the 360 degree possibilities, as this particular one is a member of a handful of degrees that reflect an other-worldliness, because they are represented by images of imaginative creatures such as fairies, elves and the like. They are referred to as Elfin degrees by Marc Edmund Jones, and they point to an incarnation of a spiritual soul, not able to live for himself alone, but as manifestations of something greater than themselves. Natives with these degrees are often obligated to be of service to others, and the Dalai Lama is a great candidate and representative of that purpose. Not all individuals understand the calling, and may fall short of a sacrificing attitude. However the Dalai Lama not only is qualified to be a leader of human goodness, but he won the world’s recognition for his great example of compassionate living because of it.
There are subtle vibrations associated with these fairy degrees. It is like the difference between standard broadcasting and cable connections. Cable can tune into higher frequencies, as people with fairy degrees can tune into higher conscious vibrations. It should always refer to the planet or point that coordinates with the degree, and if it is a Focal Determinator or simply a random point in the horoscope it will be strengthened or weakened respectively.
A Progressed Lunation is a powerful Aspect with powerful consequences for good or difficult times. There is usually a period of 3 years where there is a closing of old ways and an opening of new opportunities. There is also the tendency for a crises to arise during this time, because the ego wants to hold on to the past, and the Progressed Lunation is a time of rebirth and new cycles. A new seed of life is being planted. Here in the chart of the Dalai Lama there is an epic and rewarding moment, and it is further enhanced by the Progressed Lunation taking place in one of the very few Elfin degrees.
When reviewing the findings of the content of the Dalai Lama’s chart potentials, it is apparent that this is an incarnation of special purpose. The native of the horoscope has well expressed the profound potentials revealed by the unique configurations analyzed in this astrological report.
From NobelPrize.org: https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/1989/lama-facts.html From his exile in India, the religious and political leader the Dalai Lama has since 1959 stood at the head of the nonviolent opposition to China’s occupation of Tibet.
When the Nobel Committee chose the Dalai Lama, it emphasized that he based his Buddhist peace philosophy on reverence for all living things and the idea of a universal responsibility that embraces both man and nature. It weighed heavily in the Tibetan leader’s favor that he had showed willingness to compromise and seek reconciliation despite brutal violations.
The award of the Peace Prize gave the Dalai Lama the opportunity to present a plan for the restoration of peace and human rights in Tibet. In the plan he recommended that the country be turned into an ecologically stable and demilitarized zone that might serve as a buffer between major Asian powers. The object was to set in motion serious negotiations on the future status of Tibet, but this was rejected by the Chinese government.
Update 8/31/16: The Solar Eclipse today will be Conjunct The Dalai Lama’s Neptune and Opposite his Leading planet Saturn. He should be in the news as this is an activation of his 3rd and 9th houses. With Neptune involved, there is a gaining of responsibilities as well as losing them.
Update 12/19/16: The movie documentary, Dalai Lama Awakening, narrated by Harrison Ford has been released. Apparently there was a movie being made while Neptune was doing its Transit on Saturn, and with the Solar Eclipse, it manifested into something of an important product.
As I write this post, Transit Mars is Stationary Direct on my Natal Sun position at 23 degrees Scorpio. Mars in Transit is rounded to 24 Scorpio. The Sabian Symbol for Mars at 24 degrees is Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one man.
Yesterday, I was watching Oprah Winfrey on YouTube in an interview with Thich Nhat Hanh. I had been watching YouTube videos all week about the Dalai Lama, and then decided to branch out and view other spiritual leaders. But it was when watching Thich Nhat Hanh that I wondered if Mars was in the degree mentioned above – and sure enough it was. All of my mentors throughout my life were men; Roy Masters, Ray Johnson and then Marc Edmund Jones, to name the prominent ones. In my natal chart I have Mars Conjunct Saturn and that has brought these wise men into my life. While I was watching The Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh, I felt it was synchronous with Transit Mars so close to my Sun degree and that they were manifesting my natal potentials once again. But I realize now that I am my own teacher, but it is always uplifting to have spiritual souls in my life, even if they are not in the flesh.
But what makes the Transit Mars so interesting is that Thich Nhat Hanh’s Natal Saturn degree is 24 Scorpio and Transit Mars was passing over the symbol mentioned above: Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one man. Life brought this person to my attention and I can see the astrological correlations that brought it there.* It is always a special experience when these “magical” factors arise to be witnessed and wondered about. It is like having a special relationship with the cosmos and being let in on a secret, with confirmation that there is indeed a plan and destiny at work in our lives.
Take note that Hanh’s Uranus degree is A Harvest Moon. The positive meaning of the symbol is: “Self-completion which is successful beyond any possibility of measure.” And this planet is in a loose Grand Trine (GT) with Saturn and Pluto – just 1 degree outside normal orbs for Pluto applying to Uranus. The Pluto degree is, A man before a square with a manuscript scroll before him. This is all testimony to the great potentials, from the past and into the now and future, that a Grand Trine’s presence can herald.
There is a Grand Square that puts challenge into play at every point in life. And thanks to its participation in the Grand Trine with its contact with Saturn, the Grand Square conflicts bring out the Grand Trine wisdom of the man. He stood as a beacon of Light for those who read and hear his message from his prolific manuscripts at the bottom of a mountain of knowledge.
*Some astrologers believe that the planets and life on Earth synchronize, to borrow a term from Jung, and indeed so did Marc Edmund Jones, although he called Correspondence. Others believe that the heavenly bodies dictate our fate through their irrepressible interactions and impulses of magnetic-energies. Without committing to either exclusively, I believe we live within the combined realm of the two ever-present factors. Like a remote control over a television, garage door or any other non-wired device, we dance to the tune of heavenly, tonal vibrations – just as puppets on invisible strings. And yet my daily choices allow me the freedom to obey or disobey according to the dictates of my conscience. It is all happening in mind that is in relationship to its outer projected hologram.
