The Cosmetic and The Cosmos

If astrology is jewelry, in other words,
if we do make a study or idea jewelry,
jewelry as an a substance for embellishment,
than we must not stop at any other intellectual 
material / medium as being a medium or material
limiting us to the surface / superficiality of our

What are the other limiting substances, attributing
than in theory, to our existence? We can trance
them than to our age, sex, Ayurveda dosha, blood 
type, race,  socio-economic situation, education, 
environment, history, level of development, wheter
or not you are diagnosed with physical or psychological
ailments or diseases and the myriad list trails off... 
Where do we draw the line? When we examine these 
factors by themselves, they create a great substance,
what is the life of our intellectual life to live off of,
when one's beliefs are traceable to nothing? 

Some believe actually this the top of the hierarchical
pyramid, to live without following rigid belief 
structures, the attachment to ideas bring an
expectation of their fruit, just as attachment
to any expectation brings binding ones creative
and free spirit or daily life. 

Better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. Better than 
knowledge is meditation. But better still is surrender of attachment 
to results, because there follows immediate peace. 1

If you purify your soul of attachment to and desire for things,
you will understand them spiritually. If you deny your appetite 
for them, you will enjoy their truth, understanding what is 
certain in them. 2

Maybe we can go further and strip this idea away
completely, make this whole idea about the purity
in living with a clear and light might unbound by
idioms of archetypes or maybe even psycological
ailments. We will nullify and exemplify the whole
argument at the same time. This is simple, 
Calvinists believe the exact opposite, they were 
noteable for their austere and rigid practices,
(so are Buddhist monks.) They believed a 
demonic mind was that empty, and furthest
from enlightenment, a mind demonic is when 
not filled with the influence of God.
