A good friend of mine, just emailed me this quote below by Yogananda.

“It is never a question of BELIEF; the only scientific attitude one can take on any subject is whether it is TRUE. The law of gravitation worked as efficiently before Newton as after him. The cosmos would be fairly chaotic if its laws could not operate without the sanction of human belief.

“Charlatans have brought the stellar science to its present state of disrepute. Astrology is too vast, both mathematically  and philosophically, to be rightly grasped except by men of profound understanding. If ignoramuses misread the heavens, and see there a scrawl instead of a script, that is to be expected in this imperfect world. One should not dismiss the wisdom with the ‘wise.’

I am always very humbled by the wisdom held in the sky.  When I was at a recent astrology convention in New Orleans, I noticed almost everyone there was in their 50’s or older.  One of my great hopes is to get the younger generation interested in astrology, so that this knowledge does not die off with the older generation.

  1. This is a particularly poignant posting. Yogananda is telling us, or cautioning us to not be swayed in our thinking by the form of the data that comes to us. He is challenging us to look more deeply into our own sense of certainty and to find the Truth. We are on our own. The truth will out! However, we must not scoff at the form in which it arrives.
    You will know this down to your toes when you have your next “astrological reading” from Ms. Leslie M. A living treasure.

  2. This is really good, Leslie. Good luck to you! Love, uma
