Question: I’ve had a messy break-up with a lover who I was very close to. I know it’s for the best but I wonder, now that we aren’t together, what he thinks of me?
This is precisely the kind of question that some schools of thought say we shouldn’t ask – we should only seek answers about ourselves. Apparently it’s ethically dubious to seek information about a third party. I say, ‘Bollocks!’ to that. Ask what you really want to know and deal with the karmic repercussions as they come. This is the path to learning. And besides…it makes for a juicier reading when we don’t shame ourselves for our secret desires.
