Hi Ernst, 

Concentrating only on Rahu-Ketu and the Sun-Moon for the past 3 years, there have been layers upon layers of understanding and insights. Today was one such day. 

Rahu-Ketu is not the path of the soul, is it? It is the path of consciousness and evolution. But what is consciousness? It is the mind, isn't it, and all its different layers? 

It is the holding on to anything that makes sense within its limited understanding, and wanting to stay within those boundaries. Rahu-Ketu is the path where the mind is being awakened to reality, isn't it? And it's true potential if only it stops building more mind-castles and throwing up more smoke-screens?

The soul has no path. People do not even have souls. Soul is the one unified field that is god. we are part of that. Our consciousness evolves to recognize that. We have three bodies, a physical, astral and causal. We come to realize those three bodies. what humans casually call soul is actually the causal body as that is the most close to god part of the self. but real soul is the sarvaatma, the all self.

@ernst : "Soul is the one unified field that is god. we are part of that"  doesn't that signify qualified monism ?

Yes, one does not 'see' until one gets a glimpse of what can be, past the smoke screens. It is the mind being in control and yet not in control. The trick is to find the right balance and maintain the balance as time progresses. If not, one can be termed mentally insane by having no control over their mental faculties. On the other hand, too much control can make one close oneself off from what could be. And let's not forget that pesky Ego that always keeps regenerating itself to keep us off-balance, as if there is not enough to contend with in life. 

How wonderfully we hide ourselves from ourselves! The more intelligent the mind, the more complex the maze!

Hi Ernst: would you agree that the Ketu/Rahu axis signifies the path of learning in this lifetime and how we should deal with our Karma in order to grow into a mature person that is qualified to realize her essential oneness with the cause of all being?

I don´t like the term „soul“ either, because nobody knows what it means: Sometimes it refers to the subtle body (mind/ego/intellect), sometimes to the causal body (the storehouse of our past causes) and some people even refer to their Self as the soul.

Hi Ernst,

 

From what I understand, the window of god's free will is through resolving the bad Lajjitadi Avasthas.

Rahu-Ketu indicate the absolutely fated parts of life.

Other than resolving the bad Lajjitadi Avasthas, is there any other window to implement free will?

How does Rahu-Ketu become the most important problem to solve if it is absolutely fated, how to solve it if there is  no free will with Rahu-Ketu? Or does resolving bad Lajjitadi Avastha somehow lead us into the Rahu jungle?

Finally, for a planet in certain Lajjitadi Avastha, how does the Avastha interpretation change when it is with Rahu or Ketu? Does this reduce or take away the free will opportunity offered by this avastha?

 

Regards,

Anand
