Inspired Investing Beyond Logic
Where do mystery, science and market movements meet?
Those who can answer this intriguing question probably understand the quantum aspects of existence. Quantum mechanics is the part of science that tells us that our world is not anything like we expect or can even imagine. The quantum state is the world where our intention turns energy into matter. At the quantum level everything comes from nothing. The present, future and past are one. Atoms spin up and down at the same time but when observed, choose a direction to spin depending on the universe we are in.
In short our quantum existence is impossible in logic. Yet it is a proven fact.
Quantum science also helps us understand astrology. If our intention can alter the movement of minute particles separated by billions of relative miles, so too can the movement of huge particles that swirl around us impact our lives.
This is why Merri and I have used Vedic astrologers for years. We have found them invaluable when it comes to making decisions about health, wealth and family that we cannot make with logic.
Rather than try to explain or defend the science of this, let me just share a few ways that Vedic astrology has helped us.
A recent example took place when our daughter Elle graduated from University in London with a degree in dramatic arts. Her question to Merri and me was: “Should I go for a career in singing or go on and get a teacher's certificate in Physical Education?” (She is a superb athlete as well as an aspiring singer.)
We all agreed that becoming a singer was a long shot. Teaching was safe. But we knew that her passion was to shoot for the stars. So how would she feel in later life if she didn't try?
Merri had our Vedic astrologer check her chart. The astrologer knew nothing about Elle but said that two months before we had asked, she had moved into a three year cycle when her best thing would be the performing arts, entertaining, etc. That was enough to convince me. “Go for it”, we encouraged her.
She did and within a week she was picked as a backup singer with a popular English rock group. Her first gig was before 4,000 fans and she met rock stars she idolized. This led her into a performing arts business where today at age 23 she is already earning six figures a year. No one could have predicted the amazing ride she has taken. None of us saw this coming from the risky choice.
Without that reading, we would have felt more inclined to have her take a “safer” route. What a shame that would have been!
All we saw was that there was good potential at this time, and potential is what quantum science is all about. Every second of our hidden universe is composed of infinite potential. But that potential is hidden from our logic. Vedic astrology helps us figure this potential out.
In another case another daughter had finished university and was successfully employed as a fisheries biologist for the Bureau of Land Management. She wanted to go back to school and become a veterinarian. This meant a long hard four-year slog and sacrifice for all. Should she do it? Her chart suggested that this was perfect for her so she tried. Doors opened like magic. She was one of 23 accepted from over 300 applicants. Financing appeared in unexpected ways and she breezed through the four years. She is now a successful, joyfully happy vet. This was her perfect place. The astrologer saw this and he was right!
The inability to measure the results of astrology used to bother me enormously until years ago I read an article about Aristotle Onassis. He was asked about his use of astrology. His reply was that to be a millionaire, astrology wasn’t really needed, but to become a billionaire, it was essential!
This struck a chord as I lived in Hong Kong and saw the most successful businessmen there (often billionaires) look beyond logic.
To make billions one has to take enormous risks. Taking such risks require us to see in ways that go beyond our logic, reason and understanding.
I started using Vedic astrology years ago. I do not use it to make day-to-day business decisions. Most things get worked out with logic and thought. But astrology provides an overlay in my business and life, gives me a sense of when to push, when to pull back, when times are ripe and when they not.
Merri and I review our charts once a year with our friend and advisor, Blaine Watson. Blaine has been studying astrology since age nine and practicing Vedic Astrology for 25 years and professionally for 18 years. He received certification from Benares Hindu University in Varanasi, India and has over 7,000 clients in 41 countries.
He has been amazingly correct with my and Merri’s charts.
Sometimes I am astounded with little points that are no big deal. For example, last year he said my chart showed that beginning February 27, I would have such strong opportunities in business that people would give me property. I really did not believe this. On February 25 the owner of www.garyscott.com, a site I had troubles with wrenching this site back …(although it was my site, over the years another group had taken it ), I received a note saying he felt he should give it to me! I accepted and he made the transfer on…you guessed it, February 27.
Other times, what my charts says is important because it gives me encouragement. For example a number of years back my chart showed problems with government authorities.
Sure enough a two-year tax audit ensued, beginning almost on the day predicted. However I was told even though this trouble run for over two years it would bring me money and this suggestion was right! I received two refunds (I had been overpaying), the first was over $70,000 and one later for $44,000. This amounted to over $114,000. The refund was nice but more importantly the knowledge during the two year process that the potential for the audit to end well was encouraging.
Another year Merri’s chart showed she was in a long period where people would just give her valuable things including land and houses. That knowledge helped us make the decision to buy our farm here, despite the fact it had not been surveyed. The survey turned up 31 acres more than expected. We received this great gift free! Another year my chart suggested I should reduce my equity load. This matched my logical concerns about an inflated stock market. Thus I was 90% in bonds when the US stock market bombed.
I could go on and on with such stories.
Vedic astrology helps me in several ways. First, its overall readings point out the areas that will bring greatest success. For me it's writing, publishing and communication (surprise-surprise), plus real estate and liquids and gas. Further my annual updates show which of the areas will work best that year and when to push and when to rest.
So I am especially alert to opportunities in these fields. For example though I generally avoid investing in shares, I bought shares in a Singapore company Hyflux which is in the business of purifying water in China. I did my logical due diligence before investing in those shares but it was the liquid aspect that first attracted my attention. I am currently also heavily researching investment opportunities in biodiesel (liquid and gas).
Vedic astrology gives me very exact investing and business knowledge, but deeper still, confidence, clarity and a calm that come from knowing that all things are in order even when they do not seem to be. This along with prayer, faith and conviction are guides at times when there is no other way to know.
This has been a very deep personal experience for me, Merri and my family so I am pleased that I have finally been able to convince our closest Vedic astrologer, Blaine Watson, to give a course (which includes a personal reading for each person in attendance).
Blaine will teach all the fundamentals of Vedic astrology so that course participants will come away with a sense of familiarity and comfort with the science and be able to follow their own horoscopes at home.
The course includes an overview of the science. Then you will learn a detailed description of the chart, how it is laid out, the significations of the planets, the 12 signs, the 12 houses, the 27 nakshatras or as well as an explanation of the planetary cycles (dashas) and transits (gochar).
You learn how to look at your chart and understand what is influencing you each day. Blaine will also give you your own reading and a computer print out of your horoscope so you can follow it during the course.
