“People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder,' and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realising that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.”

- Salma Hayek

Questioning conventions allows us to grow and serve our higher purpose.

I started Useless Cogitations while experiencing the frequently misleading theories that surround us, arriving at the certain hope that we can build a better life by knowing better.

A natural law tells us, “Follow the path of least resistance.” What if we want to follow a different path? It is only by asking questions, can we hope to get answers.

And those answers are important, because we need to be shaken out of the harmful complacency that we often, quite unwittingly, find ourselves in.

In a speech by Her Majesty The Queen on the 40th Anniversary of her Accession (also known as her Annus horribilis speech), HRH remarked, “questioning can also act, and it should do so, as an effective engine for change”.

We will not achieve what we set out to do, if we don’t know what misconceptions we’re up against, and don’t get the awareness needed to identify and solve them.

For example, our birth chart planetary placements seem to influence our psyche, and they appear to have a definite impact on how we respond to our surroundings and life events.

The more advantageous way forward for us, therefore, is to gather awareness. To that end, the material you’ll read here will be drawn from fine writers, excellent films, screen-series, theatre, and art, the psychology behind astrology, and unique individuals from all walks of life.
