    Simplify, simplify, simplify

    I recently had lunch with a spiritual friend who helps to keep me sane and questioning things. I wrote the latest astrology blog before our meeting, but I now want to underline its message even more since he has confirmed that many spiritual sages have been conveying the same things.
