Notebook, December 31, 2008 Use the Essay Resources Creatively
To date, December 2008, this website has logged a 112-month history –almost 10 years-- with high numbers of visits to the site and the Discussion Forum.
In each of this site’s three Essay Departments –Analytical Techniques, Counseling Insights, and Notebook— there are 100+ Essays … each near 1,000 words in length. --Allow me to suggest, that there is not an astrological learning center anywhere in the internet world that can compare with that: some 336,000 words of quality learning, all carefully archived and immediately accessible non-commercially.
Regularly, I see questions being asked on the Forum that are answered within the essays, which are archived so clearly.
When I study, my mind likes to work this way: here we have 108 sets of three-essays each. If I take one set a day, print them out, read them over at three different times during the day, make notes of how to incorporate the knowledge into my astrological work … then, in just five weeks,I see how much my astrology will have grown!!!!
That’s the same way to think about the 144 Sun-Moon blends (Synthesis & Counseling in Astrology), for another example! If I take just three blends a day and really study them, think them through –and it helps to do this at several times during the day so the mind keeps on working to learn, independently while you’re doing other things—enter ideas and key-word concepts into a personal notebook, the information will become knowingly and operationally mine within seven weeks!
One of the important things about learning is learning HOW to learn. Unfortunately, the computer screen doesn’t help with that process: there, we learn in dehumanized and oh-so-brief formatting
I think we need to slow down so that we may make better progress; in the end, faster progress; for sure, definitive progress.
And the fascinating thing about this is that it costs nothing at all. In a way, that means the resources are invaluable!
--Thank you for enjoying the learning. I’m proud of the process ... It pays off!! And building what we know in this way is a super New Year’s resolution!!
