#Autistic #StationsofTheCross 9 - How to Address Those Who Weep for Autistic People

Since autism has long been officially defined as a “disorder” or a “syndrome”, people historically view it as a “disease” that needs a “cure.” CTD
Many seek “cures” for autism – especially those who see autistic children as unresponsive, poker-faced, socially awkward and emotionally unpredictable. But is the cure meant for us, the autistic, or for others, who are uncomfortable & unwilling to understand our needs? CTD
Asking for a “cure” is the wrong question to begin with. What if we asked: as autistic people, what do we need in order that our gifts will not remain hidden inside ourselves, but rather, can be shared openly with the larger society, needs and all? CTD

Day 2 #OfGodAndMe
I ended yesterday with by questioning whether there was more to the #Eucharist than my C of E Confirmation Preparation had indicated. As my teenage years progressed the question began to be answered by a series of events. I still see God's hand in them.

One of my closest friends at grammar school was a practising Catholic. We were drawn together by a common love of music and by the fact that we were among the very few in our year who practised any faith. We both played the organ in Church from time to time.

One day my friend invited me to try the organ at his Catholic Church. As we entered the Church he genuflected. It was the first time I had seen anyone do this. I asked him what he was doing. He pointed out the tabernacle and shared his faith in the #Eucharist.

I read the story The Silver sword by Ian Serrailler. Its about 3 Polish children who separated from their parents in World War II cross war torn Europe facing war, danger & #disease. These are children like me, I thought & was so glad I had been born after the war finished. 1/20
Living through the war as RAF personnel my parents also had a horror of war, which rubbed off on me. I saw photos of the relief of Belsen & I decided that I would do everything I could to stop war #poverty & #prejudice. 2/20
I remember Dad telling us about the jigsaw at his #Methodist Sunday school with the map of the world on one side and the face of Jesus on the other. “taking care of the world is taking care of Jesus” he said 3/20

I saw someone make mention of Midheaven degrees being "deactivated" by not having a planet in the 10th house, suggesting that someone won't have a career, and honey, that's not how astrology works. BUCKLE IN.
Each house has a planetary ruler determined by the sign within which the corresponding cusp, or point of power related to that house, falls. The condition, position, motion, and relationships of that planet tell the story of a person's life in relationship to that house.
Find the house cusp, find its ruler, determine its condition, make a judgment. Houses can be more or less active by activation through timing techniques or through considerations of cadency, but nobody has a single house that just doesn't do anything.
