13 Useful and Soulful Secrets

Below is an excerpt from my book ASTROLOGY IS REAL


I periodically ask my teammates and beloved champions whether they have discovered any of the 3,333 Useful and Soulful Secrets about the Real Reality—as opposed to the 3,333 Obvious and Sentimental Secrets about the Fake Reality. Below are among my favorites. I’d love to hear yours.

• Every conscious act is an act of magick.

• You will find beauty in everything when you look for it. Conversely, you have the power and the right to ignore beauty if you want to. But who wants to?

• In the long run, it’s healthiest to side with those who tell the most truth.

• Confucius said, “All wisdom is rooted in learning to call things by their right names.”

• Don’t stop learning just because you know it all.

• Truth is sometimes sneaky and mischievous, hiding in unexpected places. But that doesn’t mean that ALL truth is sneaky and mischievous, hiding in unexpected places.

• Ssshhhh! Communication doesn’t solve everything. Do your best to communicate, anyway.

• William James said, “I will act as if what I do makes a difference.”

• Don’t let yourself be trapped into being who you used to be if that’s not who you are anymore.

• Question yourself about your own motivations and possible self-deceptions. In so doing, you will develop an acute knack about when and how to question others about their motivations and possible self-deceptions.

• No one is ever able to tell the whole truth. That is a package of a trillion trillion trillion facts known only to the Eternal Intelligence formerly known as “God.”

• Be kind to yourself. That is not the same as indulging yourself or spoiling yourself. It means conducting your inner monologue as though you were counseling a friend whom you dearly love.

• Look for an oracle who asks you the right questions.

• Whatever your problems are, someone has it far worse and someone has it far better.

• Applaud creativity, even when its results bother you.

• Pretending you don’t feel how you feel doesn’t make you feel different.

• As Richard P. Feynman advised us, the first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool.

• Thoughts are inevitable but believing them is optional.

Below is another excerpt from my book ASTROLOGY IS REAL


I will bestow a blessing on you and your closest ally. My hope is that it will help you harness the restlessness that on occasion undermines the dynamic stability of your relationship.

Here's the benediction, inspired by a Robert Bly poem:

As you sit or walk or lie next to each other, share a mood of glad acceptance. Don't be itchy or fidgeting, wondering if there's something better to be or do.

Be united with the unique mood of the moment. Don't wish you were talking about a different subject or feeling a different emotion or living in a different world. Be content to be exactly who you are, exactly where you are

Mythologist Michael Meade says that the essential nature of every human soul is gifted, noble, and wounded.

I agree. Cynics who exaggerate how messed-up we all are, ignoring our beauty, are just as unrealistic as naive optimists.

But because the cynics have a disproportionately potent influence on the zeitgeist, they make it harder for us to evaluate our problems with a wise and balanced perspective.
Many of us feel cursed by the apparent incurability of our wounds, while others, rebelling against the curse, underestimate how wounded they are.

Meade says: "Those who think they are not wounded in ways that need conscious attention and careful healing are usually the most wounded of all."
