“Seeing in Understanding” during these uncertain times, Part 4This salient piece was written by Thea in 1973 as part of an unpublished Epilogue to her autobiography, “The Tenth Day of Victory”:

“We are at the commencement of a great of a new Age. We are the ones to pick up where the sages left off and lay the foundations for the next 2000 years and beyond; we are the ones who shall be responsible for the shape given to the element that is enveloping the world and pressing to manifest. Ours is a great good fortune, but also a tremendous responsibility.

We are faced with the Unknown; the line of action has been given, the path, the method for arriving at a certain goal in a sense, but the actual realisation of this goal is ever a mystery, and there is no one to evaluate our progress or to reveal the next step. We are left alone, and it is only the very Truth we seek to realise that is our Guide, our Teacher and our protection. We are but on the threshold of the new Age, with one foot only over the border into a new world, this land of the Unknown. Prophets have long spoken of the great change, the period around the year 2000 has been long indicated as the time of its advent. Any astrologer knows of its inevitability. I myself have written in detail of what is revealed in the Zodiac, the connection to the appearance of Christ and the link with the Age of Capricorn 2000 years in the future. In particular I have stressed the fact that the new Age demands a total relinquishing of the old values the old structures in every field, but in particular the spiritual life of man, for the movements of humanity’s evolution are all determined by the unfolding of the greater cosmic Soul revealed in the Zodiac, whose secrets can be found in the soul of man. There we can know the Absolute, we can converse with this Being and realise our identity with the Source of all, that which sustains each item and movement of Creation.

We repeat the old phrases: “The guru is to be found within,” “Truth is inside and not in the temple,” etc. But how many of us really understand these words and make them a living realisation? We cling to the old ways and we re-create them again and again. We are being taught to go within, we are being shown that no other way will lead us to the realisation of the goal all of humanity, consciously or unconsciously, is seeking to fulfil; and yet we cry out for the teacher, the priest, the dogma, the pattern, all outside ourselves. The Divine Mother seeks to manifest in each of us, to establish her own unique rapport, incredibly beautiful because of its uniqueness, and yet we set up others in her place, worship their ways follow their dictates and model our lives after their realisation. She is the Sun, but we covet the reflection of the Moon.”

The Magical Carousel, a Zodiacal Odyssey ~ excerpt from Chapter 3 - GEMINILANDThe Magical Carousel, a Zodiacal Odyssey

An Evolutionary Journey Through the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac



An Excerpt from CHAPTER 3 – Geminiland

Mind

Pom-pom dries his tears and Val bends down on all fours to examine the bird that is transporting them. He is a gay creature with blue feathers and a tuft of yellow plumes on top of his head, carrying them along in a most distracted manner.

Finally it seems they have arrived at their destination, for the bird deposits his load in a very strange land indeed! A land in the air with clouds forming landscapes and a hubbub of people rushing to and fro, all carrying books under their arms and walking in two’s. They have scholarly faces and are very busy chatting and chatting away to each other.

For a long while Val and Pom-pom study their surroundings. They realise the cage is locked and after much indecision and talk about whether they should enter this land, they finally put their diverse opinions in accord and decide to try the third key. Bending down close to the lock of the cage they see a symbol and the number 3.

Val inserts the key and to their greatest joy the door opens: they are free!

The children rush out and are about to dash off when Val remembers her picture-book. Just before the cage vanishes she returns to fetch it and puts it under her arm as they hop off down the cloud road.



The people around do not seem very interested in the children; they walk hurriedly and most of them have their noses in books. There is quite a lot of noise because all are reading out loud and making such a racket. Val wonders how they can concentrate on their studies, for surely they are studying very seriously. The children are curious to know where everyone is going because the whole place seems to be moving toward something. The only problem is that the direction always changes and they find that many times these people are moving in circles. In spite of themselves Val and Pom-pom are obliged to enter the movement and they both agree it would be a good idea to find out where everyone is off to. Pom-pom runs down the road to sort of scout around, when he hears voices above the general reading hubbub saying: “Where’s your other half?” “How dare you walk around alone!” “What sort of primitive creature are you?”

He rushes back to Val and they cling to each other not daring to move for fear of doing something wrong and arousing the ill will of these creatures. Finally the indignant voices quiet down. “Psst!”

Val and Pom-pom remain in their state, undecided as to what to do. “Psst!” they hear again, and then another more insistent, “Pssssssst!”

“Seeing in Understanding” during these uncertain times, Part 3In 1986 Thea was invited by the late Jagdish Kapoor, founder and editor of World Affairs: Journal of International Issues to present a paper in Delhi at a symposium titled, The Human Condition. Thea could not attend but her paper was published in his Journal along with the other presentations. At the time it was a startling and remarkable analysis of Sri Aurobindo’s statement: ‘At present mankind is undergoing an evolutionary crisis in which is concealed a choice of its destiny…’

We should not be surprised at this present planetary crisis, states Thea; it was/is totally predictable - the outcome of thousands of years of spiritual ideologies that have denied or neglected the Earth. We are reaping the consequences of all the many waves of spiritual visions which have swept across the planet, both from East and West, encouraging believers to see this material Earth as a place of suffering and a prison from which to escape.

The good news, as she would call it, is that as the old world collapses into chaos and decay, there is at the same time ‘a work in progress’, a new ‘blueprint’ being evolved. The outcome is a planetary society.

This short article is as relevant today in 2020 as the day it was written over 30 years ago. Thea cautions us: turning to the old and outdated spiritual ideologies will not be of much help during this ‘crisis of evolution’ as Sri Aurobindo calls it. In fact, these ‘other-worldly’ views must give way to the emerging ‘higher evolutionary laws’ that are the foundations for a new species and a new society…

The Magical Carousel, a Zodiacal Odyssey ~ excerpt from Chapter 2 - TAURUSLANDThe Magical Carousel, a Zodiacal Odyssey

Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea)

Republished, Notion Press, 2017

An Evolutionary Journey Through the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac

An Excerpt from CHAPTER 2 – Taurusland

Matter

In they go and behold! a land so different from Aries, of greens and browns and lovely rolling hills, with fruit trees galore full of sweetly singing birds and flowers swarming with bees. Pom-pom realises he has Hunter’s handkerchief still in his hand and that in the excitement he forgot to give it back. Well, who knows, a handkerchief might come in handy on such an arduous journey, and so he puts it in his pocket.

At the sight of the fruit trees all around them the children remember they are quite hungry. They see one special tree which has the most beautiful fruit and seems just ripe to eat. It stands all alone in the middle of a very lush grazing pasture fenced off from the rest of the land. Val and Pom-pom are no exception to the rule and they are determined to climb the fence and to eat precisely the fruit of this special tree.

Up and over they go and soon are gorging themselves on luscious green apples. They eat so much that before long they become very drowsy. With their stomachs so full and the excitement of Zodiacland, the air heavy-laden with the strong scent of flowers and trees in bloom, they fall into a peaceful and profound sleep.

After a long time that cannot be counted by Earth clocks, for time in Zodiacland has a meaning other than what we know, Val is awakened by great gusts of hot air being blown into her face and sounds of ‘snort- snort-spoof’. She opens her eyes and there, face to face, is an enormous bull. Her fright is so great that she jumps to her feet and runs behind the

tree, calling to Pom-pom. Meanwhile the bull doesn’t understand what the shouting and panic is about because all he wants is his favourite spot to sleep on.

“If you’ll just move over,” he assures them, “I won’t disturb your rest.

There’s room for the three of us.”

Slowly, however, it begins to dawn on Bull that something peculiar is going on; after all what are these creatures doing in his private grazing land? Without wanting to bother them with his curiosity he politely begins to question the motive of their presence.

The children blurt out all their previous adventures and Bull blinks his eyes in astonishment. He can hardly follow their tale and thinks it so delightful that he is determined to take them home to his mistress who loves a good story now and then, if she can ever stay awake long enough to listen and refrain from eating! In fact, it is time for the special banquet that takes place about now in honour of the Sun’s entry into Taurus.

“What luck for you both, and for me, because my mistress will surely reward me for bringing such a charming addition to our festivities.”
