The Oracle

From the navel of the Universe (Mount Kailash) to the navel of the Earth: today I am in Delphi.

In Ancient Greece, the Oracle, who sat where heaven and Earth met, was famous for her prophecies - the perfect panacea for humans with an inner need to know their future and make the “right” decisions. Even men like Socrates and Alexander the Great were not immune.

And yet “The Lord whose Oracle is at Delphi neither reveals nor conceals, but gives a sign.” The messages, though accurate, were ambiguous.

The only way to get to the “truth” was to take heed of the central tenet found at Delphi: Know Thyself.

When Croesus, King of Lydia, asked whether he should invade Cyrus, he was told “If Croesus goes to war, he will destroy a great empire.” He was delighted.

Not only did he subsequently go to war, but he also had his own empire crumble as a result. What lens are you seeing things through? In the event of a Divine message, would you have the discernment to correctly process it? I’d like to think so, but honestly, I am also aware of my humanness. And then, just at that very moment, I received the below message on Whatsapp: The Voice There is a voice inside of you That whispers all day long, "I feel that this is right for me, I know that this is wrong." No teacher, preacher, parent, friend Or wise man can decide What's right for you just listen to The voice that speaks inside. I, like the ancient Greeks, need to stop look for answers outside, looking for signs, waiting for coincidences. I know things. I know things in my bones. We all do. We look for signs when we don’t have the courage to act on our intuition. To paraphrase Sadhguru, we don’t need courage, we need clarity - and for that, balance is required. So find your feet, get steady, get grounded - and then trust your gut. It is sound. It knows. No oracle required.
