It’s a personal choice.
When were the scriptures conceived?
When good times ruled the planet.
Do good times rule the planet currently?
Sure, the conceivers extrapolated to level n to accommodate for the warpedness of future times to come.
However, did they accommodate enough?
Does one want to take that chance?
That’s my choice.
I’m happy with my choice.
I get by.
Common-sense is a huge ally.
Slowly, intuition has become a good friend too.
What helps greatly is that when we were learning the abc, I paid attention.
Basic community Jyotish rules from good lineages are there.
What lies on top of these, however, is adaptation.
Every situation makes one grow.
Every reading has something to teach.
Ever so often, one discovers a new meaning related to Jyotish protagonists.
One builds one’s repertoire.
When the next situation comes along, one is more prepared.
Scriptures were written in the form of Sutras.
Sutras are threads than can be stretched into infinity.
The brain plays with these threads and stretches them.
It’s intuition that stretches these threads.
Where do these threads lead?
To the source of all knowledge.
They’ve come from that source.
Once doesn’t necessarily need a thread to connect to the source of all knowledge.
A thread is merely a crutch.
One can connect to the source of all knowledge by using the chart itself.
One can delve into the chart mentally and teleport into infinity. For a flash of a second. When one comes back, it is perhaps with a huge insight.
What is the mechanism?
His or her distress.
Equally potent rebuttal based on all of the above factors and…
… the chart.
One plunges into chart with everything one’s got.
Loss of sense of place and time for a miniscule portion of time.
Mind has gone to the place of all knowledge, catalysed by circumstance, distress, approach, experience, arsenal, potency and chart.
Mind comes back within milliseconds.
It doesn’t come back empty-handed.
Warped times demand radical approaches.
One makes one’s own rules.
Rules that are befitting.
Rules that can beat the warp.
