A Journey

I have noticed recently that there are several random viewers from different parts of the world beginning to be more frequent. As well, I would hope, as those of you who like to read whenever you can. This being said, before going any further, if you enjoy this blog or have enjoyed any other blog you have read, please share the whereabouts with someone you know. This may not be easy, as many are not the slightest bit interested. But try, if you can.

The reason for this blog; I am about to depart for a weeks holiday in Tenerife with my beautiful family. As well as this journey I will be taking another one, of a different nature. I will be reading Paramhansa Yogananda’s ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’. For those of you who have heard of this book, or even read it, will know what I am speaking of. Those of you who haven’t. Make some practical use of the internet and google it!

I am sharing this information with you who read this to say that I will not come back from Tenerife the same person as I went away. I will have read one more book, seen 7 more sunsets, seen my sons smile countless times. What more is there to pray for?

When I return from my holiday, I will be sharing several insights from this great book, by this great man. And for those of you who are interested it will take you about 3 minutes to read them. Or roughly as long as it has taken you to read this. There will be a Yogananda category and a Kriya Yoga Category for you to Read, enjoy and share.

Have a Blessed week. Enjoy the ups and downs. But, first, form your opinion about this post.

Vocation

vo·ca·tion
[voh-key-shuh n] – noun

1. a particular occupation, business, or profession; calling.
2. a strong impulse or inclination to follow a particular activity or career.
3. a divine call to God’s service or to the Christian, Divine, Spiritual life.
4. a function or station in life to which one is called by God: the religious vocation; the vocation of marriage; a vocation to greatness!

“Among his various possible beings each man always finds one which is his genuine and authentic being. The voice which calls him to that authentic being is what we call ‘vocation.’ But the majority of men devote themselves to silencing that voice of the vocation and refusing to hear it. They manage to make a noise within themselves… To distract their own attention in order not to hear it; and they defraud themselves by substituting for their genuine selves a false course of life.”

Jose Ortega y Gasset.

Are you listening to the voice which is calling you to your vocation? Are you aware that there is an inner voice? Or, are you making noise within yourself, distracting your own attention and defrauding yourself!?

These are questions that require an answer, that can be answered if enough attention is paid to them. If you have never pondered a thing such as this; ‘vocation,’ ‘Life purpose,’ ‘Life Task,’ maybe now is the time? After all, you are reading these words…

We all have individual purpose in this life of ours. Each and every one of us is hear for a particular reason. Wether that is to produce an offspring, find a cure for cancer, become a world leader, or, torment another human being with our poisonous negativity!

My aim for this blog is only to hope that you take a short minute of introspection and ask yourself a simple question.. Are you happy where your life is right now, and feel you have found your ‘vocation?’ Makes no difference to me and my family, but it will have a huge difference to yours.

Thank you for reading, aim high, and never let someone tell you it isn’t possible!!

Astrology Update

This is a quick post to make the newer readers, as well as all readers aware that there is an astrology category on my blog which contains all of the star signs personality characteristics.

This can be useful for many reasons. First and foremost of interest to us all is our own star sign. Am I anything like the general Sagitarian or Geminian for example? I can go to one of these posts and find out instantly wether I have certain characteristics.

Next is our friends or relatives. We can look up their sign and see if they relate to the personality traits. Or we can just look through them all in order to get an overall outlook of the 12 general types among us. Please read and enjoy these posts you will find in the astrology category.

Pisces

19 February – 20 March

The twelfth and last sign of the zodiac. Here is the recluse who nevertheless has stunning potential, when it is allowed to blossom- although often a lack of self-confidence prevents a full expression of Piscean potential. The ruling planet, Neptune, while encouraging inspiration, sensitivity and vision, can cloud issues. You will know the kindness of Pisceans, but may find them deceptive. Give them encouragement and they will develop greater confidence and belief in what they can do.
This is the third and last sign of the water element, and the fourth and last sign of the mutable quality. The emotion of water is encouraged by the mutable quality, and is a powerful force that is likely to require shaping and controlling if it is to work in a rewarding and satisfying way. Pisceans often have a powerful spiritual faith, which can, however, be diverted into some unconventional cult.

Traditional Pisces Traits
Imaginative, sensitive, compassionate, kind, selfless, unworldly, intuitive, sympathetic.

Escapist, idealistic, secretive, vague, weak-willed, easily led.

Associations of Pisces
Body area: Feet
Foodstuffs: Cucumber, pumpkin, lettuce, melon
Animals: Mammals that like water; fish
Countries: Portugal, many small Mediterranean islands, the Gobi and Sahara deserts

Aquarius

21 January – 18 February

The eleventh sign of the zodiac shows us true individualists. Aquarians are usually glamorous, always friendly, but they are private people who tend to surround themselves with an air of mystery. This is in defence of a specific lifestyle that can lead to conflict when the question arises of deepening an emotional relationship. The ruling planet, uranus, adds a certain eccentricity and unpredictability, which is not easy for others to cope with.
Aquarius is the last sign of the air element and the fourth of the fixed quality. This makes for an enquiring mind, which can ossify once opinions are formed. Like Capricorn, Aquarius does not bestow a generous emotional level. The influence of Venus will help in the expression of feelings towards partners, while Mercury helps reduce stubbornness.

Traditional Aquarius Traits
Friendly, humanitarian, honest, loyal, original, inventive, independent, intellectual.

Intractable, contrary, perverse, unpredictable, unemotional, detached.

Associations of Aquarius
Body area: Shin and ankles; the circulation
Foodstuffs: Foods that preserve well, frozen food, apples, citrus fruits, dried fruits
Animals: Large birds that fly far
Countries: The Russian Federation, Sweden, Poland, Ethiopia, Israel, Finland

Capricorn

22 December – 20 January

The tenth sign of the zodiac. Saturn rules the sign and bestows ambition, a need always to do the right and proper thing, and a love of tradition. But Capricorns do have the capacity for enjoyment and always possess a marvellously off-beat sense of humour.
This is the third and last sign of the earth element, and the fourth and last sign of the cardinal quality. The practical side of earth combines with an outgoing, expressive quality, giving common sense and the ability to express it in a forthright manner.
Capricorn is a sign with a rather low emotional level, but often the pacing of Venus- especially when in either Scorpio or Pisces- will help warm a rather distant Capricorn heart and encourage faithfulness.

Traditional Capricorn Traits
Practical, prudent, ambitious, disciplined, patient, careful, humorous, reserved.

Pessimistic, fatalistic, miserly, grudging, over-conventional, rigid.

Associations of Capricorn
Body area: Knees, skin, bones, teeth
Foodstuffs: Meat, potato, barley, beet, spinach, malt, medlar, onion, quince, starchy foods eg pasta
Animals: Goats and cloven-footed animals
Countries: India, Mexico, Afghanistan, Macedonia, Tibet, Albania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, the coast of Croatia, Orkney and Shetland

Sagittarius

23 November – 21 December

The ninth sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius is the sign of the horse man. It brings a combination of physical strength and energy, with powerful intellect. Here is the second ‘dual’ sign of the zodiac. Versatility will be present, and mind and body should act as one. Rest and relaxation come through both. Jupiter, the ruling planet, encourages both mind and body, along with the need for challenge, and Sagittarians must be aware of this.
Here is the third and last of the fire element signs, and the third of the mutable quality. The fire burns strong and bright, with lively enthusiasm and an infectious emotional level. It gives the individual the ability to grasp overall situations very quickly. Optimism abounds. The Sagittarian Centaur is an Archer with a need for room in which to breathe and for a diversity of interests. Sagittarians must always be aware that intellectual and physical stagnation will lead to restlessnes which is their real enemy. While the Sagittarian polar sign, Gemini, is intellectually oriented, there is an accent on the higher mind, which help develop philosophical traits and quells the tendency to take risks.

Traditional Sagittarius Traits
Optimistic, freedom-loving, jovial, good-humoured, honest, straightforward, intellectual, philosophical.

Blindly optimistic, careless, irresponsible, superficial, tactless, restless.

Associations of Sagittarius
Body area: Hips, thighs, and the liver
Foodstuffs: Bulb vegetables, grapefruit, currants, sultanas, celery, onions, leeks
Animals: Horses, hunted animals, eg deer
Countries: Spain, Australia, Hungary, South Africa, Saudi Arabia

I will add here at the end. I Lewis Kirk, author of this blog, am a Sagittarius. And to quote from a sentence above; “The Sagittarian Centaur is an Archer with a need for room in which to breathe and for a diversity of interests.” A diversity of interests.. If this isn’t FragmentsOfragments summed up in one sentence, I can think of no better words!
