6 April

indexIt is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.

Baba Ram Dass, born 6 April 1931, Sun in Aries and Moon in Scorpio, American Hindu spiritual teacher.

“The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me.”

“If you think you’re free, there’s no escape possible.”

“When we see the Beloved in each person, it’s like walking through a garden, watching flowers bloom all around us.” (waterhouse enchanted garden)

“Religions are founded by what mystics say when they come back; but what the mystics say is not the same as what happened to them.”

“Do what you can on this plane to relieve suffering by constantly working on yourself to be an instrument for the cessation of suffering. To me, that’s what the emerging game is all about.”

“Souls love. That’s what souls do. Egos don’t, but souls do. Become a soul, look around, and you’ll be amazed-all the beings around you are souls. Be one, see one. When many people have this heart connection, then we will know that we are all one, we human beings all over the planet. We will be one. One love. And don’t leave out the animals, and trees, and clouds, and galaxies-it’s all one. It’s one energy.”

“The cosmic humor is that if you desire to move mountains and you continue to purify yourself, ultimately you will arrive at the place where you are able to move mountains. But in order to arrive at this position of power you will have had to give up being he-who-wanted-to-move-mountains so that you can be he-who-put-the-mountain-there-in-the-first-place. The humor is that finally when you have the power to move the mountain, you are the person who placed it there–so there the mountain stays.”

 

Raphael: (1.1.8) born with Sun and Moon in Aries, Ascendant in Scorpio, on 6 April 1483, and died on the same day after 37 years, he is considered one of the greatest and most popular artists of all time. He is particularly known for his numerous Madonnas and abundant representations of angels. The bodies of saints, madonnas and angels depicted by Raphael were full of motion and gestures, with realistic and harmonious features. Some of his paintings have astrological connotations with skies painted in accordance who are looking on, rather unconcerned, and almost bored, at the scene of the virgin with the Child Jesus.
