Accept the Other as Yourself---Part 1
Mercury is the planet that rules our communication — communication rules our relationships — everything in life is a relationship. Therefore, Mercury has a hand in everything. The Mercury finger (the pinky) is formed when you are an embryonic ball in the womb — it is formed from the exact same tissue as the frontal lobe of the brain. This area of the brain contains a complex network of nerve endings and neurons for higher reasoning . . . home of the highest frequencies in the human psyche. Here, your perceptions of the self communicate back to the self . . . out from this sense of self, all relationships are formed.
This is known as the mirroring facility of relationship . . . the observer and the observed. Can you keep up with the vitality of these events that promote the relating in a relation? Or — if no connection appears — do you blame this lack of connection on the mirror? This blame is always far — far from truth. However, when it worms its way into your thinking and appears in your world, it becomes your truth, which is not truth, but . . . the illusion of this confusion is pandemic.
In reality, the observed and the observer are the same event. The only question is how long will it take humanity to commit to the reality of this universal principle? When will our eyes see and our senses connect to the oneness of everything? When will we decide to honor our right to have the rite of a relationship — rather than a capsizing relation-canoe? When will we decide to stand up in our unions and experience the power of relation, the fulfillment and the joy? Remember: you can always stand up in a ship, but do not try it in a canoe.
