We all have heard of him but what did he really do? How could he be affecting our world today? What did he have to do with modern day beliefs and habits? How do many of the life styles we have today go way back to Alex? He was truly great. Here is a young man from Macedonia who decided to the change the world on horseback. No small feat! He died around the age of 32 so he definitely was an ambitious and smart king. He was born in 356 BC in the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon. By the time he died he had created one of the largest empires of the ancient world. It stretched from Greece to northwestern India. To give you an idea of his brilliance, he was tutored under Aristotle. He did this all in only 10 years.

I had planned to write a different piece today but I got blindsided again by news of another friend diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. This time it is Karen Ashley of San Francisco and the person in charge of the West Coast Dowsers for the last several conferences. She is also the best “face reader” I have ever met. Not only was Karen diagnosed with cancer but she was put in hospice very quickly. For those of you who know her, please send your love, flowers or whatever feels best to you. Dick Tippett is her loving spouse.
Living with a first-time experience of a Pluto in Capricorn transit is definitely not a picnic. We Americans are finding out how sobering it can be. When America was born in 1776 the planet Pluto was in Capricorn. It takes about 240-250 years for it to return to its starting point. So, here we are back again taking a look at how we have done since we began in 1776 and forcing us to deconstruct and create anew. It is painful, it is exhausting and it is relentless. It started in 2008 (remember the financial crash and its aftermath) and it won’t let go until 2024. Although it affects the entire world, it is particularly zeroed in on the United States due to the planetary alignment at the moment of our beginning. We are now in the royal cross hairs of the sniper.
The older I get (and I am definitely getting) the more I understand the advantage of keeping my own company. Myconclusion to some of this great mystery here on planet earth is that people are lonely because they don’t know themselves. Loneliness implies that you are still seeking the “other”. That doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy friends, a community but without the ability to know yourself, there seems to be the eternal search to find the answer outside of yourself.
