There’s wholistic wisdom within the popular song from the 60s. The example often used to illustrate the concept is in the planting of the seed to grow a tree. The seed contains all that is required for the tree to be fully grown however it will not take place until its time for readiness has arrived. For example there is a correct time of planting, a correct soil to plant it in, a correct time for it receiving light and water. If any of these elements are not aligned with at the correct moment the seed will not be ready to become a tree. Each element plays its role at its moment of readiness to become a part of the collective whole – a common principal present in all things.
We may have excellent goals, business plans, family aspirations, ideas for an invention, etc, and yet if our timing is incorrect the desired result will not be possible. Often times when things don’t come our way we blame ourselves when actually the timing element may not yet have been mete. For example, just as with the farmer having to plant his crops based on the sun, there are hidden quantum effects coming from the planets that influence our readiness. For example, because the scientists so far only recognize the physical realm, the 10 cosmic dimensions that emanate from the planets are not yet understood by them – or we can say – conventional science is not yet ready for connecting to this wisdom. Then, although those who diligently study the wholistic science of Astrology may be very up on moment to moment cosmic dynamics, our mere awareness alone of its wholistic spiritual dynamics can go a long way in helping us align with our timing on many levels. The readiness factor there for instance explains how it can be that clear straight forward logic is often not understood due to not having the quantum “vessel” to receive it.
Our rapidly growing 21st century technological advancement is perhaps the ultimate readiness example. Prior to the late 19th century not only were there very few technological advances, but modern spirituality itself had not yet blossomed into its present all encompassing status – the “Age of Aquarius” had not yet arrived to make it possible – timing once again.
