the Father of Communism
I once met a man from a Far-Eastern
nation who told me that in several countries near his homeland, (Laos,
Cambodia, Thailand and Viet Nam), they refer to the United States as
"The Father of Communism", and to themselves as "only
Incredulous, I asked, "Is
that why you came to my country? Because you think we are Communists?"
He clarified, "No, you
don't understand. In the U.S. corruption exists in very high places.
In our countries, we can bribe the police or the post ofice, but that
is how far it goes".
Neptune is the planet of
either deception or idealism. It is our choice as to which potential
we will elicit from our charts.
If we choose to be committed
to high ideals, then we will not allow ourselves to delude ourselves
People often don't even realize
when they are lying to themselves. They may choose to turn a tolerant
blind eye to their own faults, or the faults of their children, until
one of them grows up and becomes an ax-murderer.
When people use intoxicants,
legal or otherwise, to "take the edge off" their stress, they
are lying to themselves.
One lie begets another, and
soon people are entangled in a web of their self-imposed duplicity.
Their marriages become lies. Their professional relationships become
a self-serving lie.
The Native American people
say that anything acquired without honor will never be retained.
If one is to manifest higher
Neptune potentials from one's chart, then consistent impeccable honor
with oneself first, and with everyone else next, is an absolute imperative.
There are no shades of grey
with dishonesty. Honor = Trustworthiness.
Lower Neptune potentials
love to disregard boundaries, including boundaries of propriety. The
bonus is that Neptune also rules sleep and dreams.
If one is honest, then one
will assuredly sleep well and have good dreams.
