Numerology/Astrology for 10/28/17
Just a reminder that I am on a trek and Internet may be sketchy or non-existent. I will do my best to give you blogs when the internet is available. Thank you for your understanding.
10/28/17 is the number 3. Life has its ups and downs. Occasionally, (like now) those waves are very big and extreme. The bigger the storm, the longer that storm sticks around. Wishing for things that nature is not remotely prepared to offer is an experience in stress and believing that you can make something happen that you wish for but is actually not in alignment with the lessons that the Divine is offering up to you in that moment. Deal with what is right in front of you. That is how you discover the miracle in the storm, the gift in the upset.

It has never been more clear to me than now, being in Nepal, after that horrible earthquake two years ago, that what make cultures powerful is the infrastructure that makes cities great and work smoothly. What I mean by infrastructure is the roads, water, electrical, plumbing, waste removal, housing, decent road construction, and financial systems that work for the people, etc. You cannot have a civilization that thrives when there is such hardship for life. My husband works in Delhi and his apartment is a nice one but nothing to get super excited about and the cost is way more than most houses mortgage payments in America. The tub leaks, you have to have an air purifier in the house because of the terrible air, plumbing is strange and not sealed properly allowing smells to come up from underneath, etc. I could go on and on. The infrastructure is not there in Delhi. The water is undrinkable by American standards, there is no real garbage and waste removal that would be remotely familiar to our standards. Parking is atrocious. Pollution is ridiculously bad. Traffic a nightmare coming to a from work. And that is one of the reasons that my husband is in Delhi doing solar. Clean energy for a city and country that desperately needs a better infrastructure. When you look at history, great cultures manifest when there are systems in place that allow for some form of consistency. Rome got its aqueducts and that allowed a huge city to rise up because they had water and plumbing. The same was true in Peru with the water systems that allowed water to come from the glaciers to the fields to grow crops. I find it painful that the infrastructure that has made our country great is being slowly dismantled. When you take away good health insurance from people eventually disease will kill the population more quickly. When you do not give the poor and the middle class certain standards, why would they allow a government controlled by the wealthy to continue. This is how revolutions start and it is how civilizations end. Check a history book. It is the same over and over again. Within each of us is a power to do something that can make a difference. Complacency is what makes civilizations fall. When will each of you stand for the great gifts this life has offered and not allow them to be dismantled? How much loss is finally enough loss to make you have a voice? Clearly we are going to find out. We are clearly in the truth of an ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.”
