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.”

“Seeing in Understanding” during these uncertain times, Part 2Introduction:

There continues to be a lot of information available for ‘these ‘uncertain times’. For us, Thea’s 9th chapter from The Gnostic Circle - the Age of Aquarius - gives the best sense of what is really happening. Her opening statement sets the stage: in the Precession of the Earth, we have moved from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius – in fact we are only 2 degrees into this Age. She takes us through the three cycles within this age, each 720 years, and shows the predominant influence based on the cosmic harmonies of the Earth.

Under the influence of Uranus, in the FIRST decanate (of 720 years) the earth herself is revealing her cosmic structure, not through science, not through spirituality, but through what Thea calls ‘a third way’ – a New Way. In the second cycle of 720 years, she states’ the body of a new language will be shaped’ – referring to the need for a ‘language of unity’ to express the fuller sense of unity which inevitably will evolve and move across the world. And in the last cycle of 720 years, the Aquarian ‘wave’ will be complete, a group of ‘gnostic’ people will have ‘seen and understood’ the plan of the Divine Mother; a new faculty, ‘the mind of light’ will replace our limited mental vision of who we are and the purpose of the earth’s evolution.

An excerpt from: The Gnostic Circle, Chapter 9: The Aquarian Age

‘OUT OF THE darkness and into the light: this is the Earth’s present destiny. From the waters of Pisces, where the soul of the Earth experienced the intimate communion with the Supreme and took the essential steps in the attitude of surrender, the evolution now proceeds towards the victory through Knowledge, through identity with the universal consciousness, and into a phase of mass transformation, a breath vast, extensive and universal in its scope, which will not leave any hidden recesses or dark corners in the fight for a total victory of Truth.

It is only now that we can truly say ‘the Sun of Knowledge illumines the horizon’, for the Sun itself, the Divine in the physical manifestation, is the upholder of our times, and for the next 2,100 years, we will proceed toward the condition of full identity with the truth-consciousness that is symbolised by the Sun. We move into the Age fully equipped with the necessary powers to accomplish the task. Unlike the Piscean Age where the higher range of possibilities - as epitomised by Neptune - were not active until the very last century of the Age, in this present era we are already working with the full power of Uranus, the force of the higher expression of Aquarius. In fact, this power, which is the power of transformation, was the first to appear in the higher gamut. Afterwards came Neptune, and then finally Pluto.

The specific characteristic of our present Aquarian Age, the 98th section of the Greater Circle, is that the usual methods of doing things that have been considered adequate for thousands of years are now being upturned. In the simplest manner mankind will be brought to live in a consciousness of Truth whereby very shortly it will fully understand that all its suffering is self-inflicted, not an inherent part of the evolution, nor does this represent the goal toward which we move. This goal is Perfection, - but perfection itself is not a static condition. We can say, Perfection is not static; it is an eternal Becoming, being at each moment what the Lord wills and therefore always what should be. It is the celestial harmony unfolding itself into Eternity, and as such each moment is in itself a perfection. We shall come to understand during this Age that ‘each moment is in itself a Perfection.’ Illness, suffering, anguish, and Ignorance - the source whereupon all the others feed - are not a permanent part of the plan. These are only temporary manifestations, part of the illusion of Prakriti. This seems impossible to believe because we are so habituated to our suffering. To conceive of a life without pain seems almost impossible for Earth beings, let alone to speak of life without death. Yet this too shall come. The very things we find most impossible, most incomprehensible, most threatening to the comfortable and crushing rut the evolution presently knows, shall come to pass. This is the Age of the Universal Transformation, the very time that our pain shall change to its opposite, when we shall be made to see that all pain and suffering is only a distortion of the Divine Bliss. And this will not be accomplished merely by a withdrawal into a nirvanic paradise, a detachment from the flesh and its experiences in such a manner that the consciousness alone will be liberated, leaving Matter in its disintegrating condition, or else an acceptance of pain and the Ignorance by seeing ‘the Divine in All’. The physical itself is now to know the divine ananda. …’
