www.etymologyonline.com:Annuit Coeptis "Juppiter omnipotes, audacibus annue coepti"
"Juppiter omnipotes, audacibus annue coepti"
|"on the Great Seal of the United States of America, condensed by Charles Thompson, designer of the seal in its final form, from Latin Juppiter omnipotes, audacibus annue coeptis " All-powerful Jupiter favor (my) daring undertakings," line 625 of book IX of Virgil's "Aeneid." |
The words also appear in Virgil's "Georgics," book I, line 40:
Da facilem cursam, atque audacibus annue coeptis "Give (me) an easy course, and favor (my) daring undertakings."
Thompson changed the imperative annue to annuit, the third person singular form of the same verb in either the present tense or the perfect tense. The motto also lacks a subject.
The motto is often translated as "He (God) is favorable to our undertakings," but this is not the only possible translation.
Thomson wrote: "The pyramid signifies Strength and Duration: The Eye over it & Motto allude to the many signal interpositions of providence in favour of the American cause."
The original design (by William Barton) showed the pyramid and the motto Deo Favente Perennis "God favoring through the years."
BPL commentary: esoteric theory would claim that the radiance behind the Eye represents the guidance not of Jove but rather of Sirius "the Sun behind the Sun" from which signal-station the Earth's thought-intelligence is transmitted.

| YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS
Start Where You Are by Pema Ch÷dr÷n, page 89
|"The main thing about this practice and about all practice is that you're the only one who knows what is opening and what is closing down; you're the only one who knows. |
There's a slogan: "Of the two witnesses, hold the principal one." What it's saying is that one witness is everybody else giving you their feedback and opinions (which is worth listening to; there's some truth in what people say), but the principal witness is yourself.
You're the only one who knows when you're opening and when you're closing.
You're the only one who knows when you're using things to protect yourself and keep your ego together and when you're opening and letting things fall apart, letting the world come as it is—working with it rather than struggling against it."

|No graha treats Guru as an enemy, but Guru dislikes Budha and Zukra|| |
Guru becomes sated with the heavy pleasuring of Vrishabha. He moves sluggishly there, expanding material-resource wealth but unable to develop much wisdom.
In Thula-Vanika, Guraja does not expand fully because He is locked into contractual agreements which regulate social and material resource management. Guru is not harmed in Thula but His higher philosophical wisdom cannot be expressed in matters of legal contracts, diplomatic negotiations, and brokered deals. Guru is not a deal-maker: He presents the truth As It Is, without"balancing"and adjustment to human sensual tastes (Zukra).
In Kanya-Parthya, Brihaspati is constrained by Kanya's service duties. Guru expands the complaining, accusing, litigious qualities of Kanya but He can also help the medical genius of Kanya, by expanding health knowledge and developing medical treatment plans. When Guru travels through Kanya, one's may be able to further develop the skills needed for ministries of service. Guru can generate an ever-expanding task list.
In Mithuna, Guru's grand wisdom is drained off by chatty conversation about mundane topics. The day-to-day busy-ness of scripted communications sucks the life right out of big philosophy. The mind becomes fixated on short-term plans and daily transactions. Mithuna's channel is too narrow to accommodate Guru's wide perspective; wisdom is "packaged" in bite-sized portions for the short attention span.
in the bhava --
Guru-yuti-Surya pitrikaraka = more than one Father or father-figure
Guru-yuti-Chandra matrikaraka= more than one Mother or mother-figure

Guru + Vriddhipathi-11 = many friends
Guru + rogesha-6 = many physicians
Guru-yuti-Rahu = many adventures
Guru + Shani (for Feminine Nativities) = multiplication of remarriages, many second-husbands

A Catechism of Astrology, p. 39
"Jupiter must be the karaka for language.
If he is in lagna or aspects the 9th house, one will know several languages.
The second house indicates speech.
If Ketu is in the second, or the lord of the second happens to see the second,
then the native will become well versed in a number of languages.
The second house and Jupiter are the most important factors for judging linguistic capabilities."

"Q. 39 Is Jupiter's aspect in debilitation good?
Ans. -- Jupiter is primarily a benefic by nature.
"Q. 32 Is there any truth in the saying that Jupiter, posited in Aquarius, is equivalent to Jupiter in Cancer?
Ans. -- Brihat Jataka, Chapter 16, verse 6, gives this effect, though Saravali gives bad effects. The former is more authoritative.
|Psychically, Guru indicates one's permission levels set at birth.||
Karmically, Guru indicates what type of talent, gift, and privilege is stored in the credit account created by generous actions in parallel lives and stored in the Akashic Record. This record is stationed in the Earth's magnetosphere and contains a holographic image representing all Earth Births.
Physically, Guru expands everything He contacts. Brihaspati can change the size of the person's fleshly annamayakosha * foodbody.
When He sends a drishti to the lagna, for example, Guru makes the person look larger. When He sends drishti to Chandra, this ray signifies that the person is reproductively fertile.
Emotionally, Guru is relaxed and confident in the process of increasing one's scope of understanding.
Socially, Brihas-pati is compassionate and generous toward other beings.
Intellectually, Guru is omniscient Himself and a wonderfully inclusive teacher to others.

"It is only the mean-minded who calculate in the manner that such and such is mine and such and such is alien.
For those of magnanimous character the whole earth is one family."
Buddhist Texts (vs. images)
~~ Generous Wisdom : Commentaries by His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIV on the Jatakamala Garland of Birth Stories. (1992). Tenzin Dorjee (Trans.) Dudjom Rinpoche (Ed.).
"It wouldn't be bad if you didn't have statues, but it has become indispensable to have Buddhist texts which deal with the structured path to train our mind.
If you have Buddhist texts, read them for yourselves and to friends who visit. That way you can help others to understand Buddhist ideas.
For instance, it is interesting to read Milarepa's life story and songs. We find in them many enlightening lessons. Buddha's image alone will not purify us of karmic obscuration....
Buddha from Nepal stationed in San Francisco - via Nyima Dorje Sharwa
* * * Dedicated to Cho-khor Du-chen, Shakya-muni Buddha
14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso
"... Shakyamuni Buddha, even when he was a trainee on the path, was solely concerned in both thought and action with others' welfare. Whenever he found an opportunity to work for others, no matter what difficulties he faced, he was never discouraged.
He never hated obstacles and hardships encountered on the way. Instead, the difficult situations facilitated his being more courageous and determined to accomplish others' welfare. Just because he was so determined to work for others in the past, even as a trainee on the path, it is needless to say how much more it is so with him now as a completely enlightened person.
...We say this prayer at the time of taking vows:
In regard to situations in which we cannot help others literally, we can mentally dedicate our body, wealth and virtue to them. Otherwise, we are just helpless.
While you give, do not expect something in return. Do not give to fulfill selfish motives. Do not be discouraged in giving. Generate the altruistic mind of enlightenment as best you can, and then give out of sole concern for others.
Having been reborn as human beings and having come into contact with Dharma, we know something about what to do and what not to do."
The Golden Rule, painted by Norman Rockwell, 1961 for the lobby of the United Nations Building, New York USA
