The Script for Life – part 1
Before you took birth, you chose what kind of experiences you wish to explore during this life, in order to facilitate the unfolding of your awareness. You chose the way you wish to learn to improve your awareness of Self, by dealing with your life experiences. ”Who am I?”. That is the ultimate question behind every encounter, regardless of the external outcome of events.
To get these experiences, you activate your astrological birth chart. Your birth chart, which is the planetary setup at the time of your birth, does not determine your life. The chart shows the portfolio of experiences you have chosen for yourself to explore. Specific experiences need to be received in specific manner. This does not contradict the fact that you use free will in dealing with your circumstances. This is similar to if you would enroll on a course of study. Making the choice to enroll is an act of free will, you do that because the topic interests you and you wish to evolve through it. After you have activated the ”experience of the study course” by enrolling, you need to deal with it in a required manner, according to the specifications and limitations set by the course curriculum. You need to show up at a specific location, at specified times, you need to devote a certain amount of hours and days of your life for participating, you need to focus on the presentations and try your hand at solving the challenges provided for you. In a similar manner, by being born onto life on earth, you have enrolled on your individual study course for life – the curriculum and contents of which you have designed yourself, in collaboration with the supportive universal and divine influences. You yourself have chosen to follow up on a plan which you yourself have come up with, fully aware that after birth you would develop amnesia about your own involvement in this matter. By the time you reach the stage of adulthood, you have forgot all about it. In most cases, anyway. ”Who am I?”
This is what it means to activate your chart. By engaging in specific activity, you activate a specific area of your own central nervous system and your body structure. That is where the chart resides. By activating the specific areas of your system, you invite specific experiences and circumstances into your life. The chart is the whole you, your whole life, it is everything about you and everything in you. By activating a specific part of yourself, everything else about you gets activated also. And because you are a part of a larger whole, part of the life around you, by activating a specific part of yourself the whole universe gets activated. When you act in a specific manner, it is not just your heart or your kidneys or lungs that operate – they all function in collateral and cooperative manner. You are the Ascendant and the Ascendant is in everything. Whatever you choose to do or leave undone, the whole system activates to support that act: your whole nervous system, all your internal organs, all the glands and muscles and joints etc. But not just with you: when you choose to act, the nervous system and the internal organs and the muscles and glands and joints of others around you activate also, as collateral effect. Just like you at times activate as collateral effect for someone else. Have you ever noticed how you get activated by your spouse? That should be fairly easy to detect. Whatever is done or left undone, the whole system of life and universe plays its part in it. Life is a stage and we are all actors, as Shakespeare wrote.
By studying the Jyotish chart and how it demonstrates the connections between different parts, you could write the story of your whole life. But hey… that is exactly what you are doing: by choosing to live it. That is what you came here for.
