The Miracle of Oneness 9 a concluding summation

Part 9 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

I would like to bring this series to a close not with another Journal entry but with a summary of sorts based on the responses to what I had been recording after an important breakthrough. The realisation that contraction is a property of the Zero was well known before this latest act of seeing. What changed was so simple that I cannot now understand how it was missed for so long. Being a ‘cosmic direction’ (along with expansion) proper to the Zero, and the latter being the compaction of the three times, it should have been obvious that contraction was on the other side of what science calls the event horizon; or else beyond the borderline of a singularity. Thus, the entire event occurs on the other side. And it is constant, ceaselessly creative. Therefore it can easily qualify for the elusive cosmological constant. It is through contraction that the properties of the Zero are carried over into the material world and indeed become the upholder of the entire manifestation ‘on this side’.

When passage is made into the Zero, beyond the material threshold, it is true that the mathematical formulae and laws of physics cannot be used to measure and to explain the process. Unity is the keyword and I stated that the Mathematics of Unity is required in order to reach the essence of Being. This same system may be used on this side of the cosmological threshold, and by reduction to a seed digit something of that essential being can be explained; moreover, this allows for applicability.

Important to note is that the realm of essentiality is known as the solar world because the Sun (0) is the source of essence. When that Essence is drawn into our material universe of 9, by processes of yoga devised for that purpose, the individual who has attained this new balance or poise of consciousness-being necessarily becomes governed by laws that hold in the solar world.

Sri Aurobindo’s mission to bring ‘heaven’ to Earth, or to establish that Kingdom here, implies this shift which then places the individual capable of the realisation here – but not here; that is, the laws operating for a creature bounded by the pivot at the sex centre. with its atavistic drives and ego-dependency, are inoperable when the solar world becomes established on Earth. This means that the laws of essentiality are the protection required to allow the new creation to be born in this material dimension and to grow and ultimately flourish. Without the realignment and crosswise new balance that brings into being a true Centre, no such protection exists. The Mother was especially concerned about this aspect of the Truth-Conscious manifestation: how would it survive in a world hostile to the higher things?

But this would be a contradiction in terms because once centering of the New Way has occurred that ‘point that has filled the Void’ cannot be withdrawn. Practically, this means that a mortal creation pivots a void where the fullness of the Centre should be. This situation not only furthers atavism but is also the reason why a creation orbiting such a void must collapse into that emptiness.

The goal of the new creation is therefore to fill the Void. This can be done by centering and realignment. In symbology it is described as the equal-arm or the off-centre cross. Where the two arms join at their exact centre the Point emerges that fills the Void.

Once accomplished, the laws of the Zero-Centre prevail, and they carry us to immortality. When contraction in the Zero is seen and the cosmological constant is realised as just that, a constant, then we are certain that the kingdom of the Sun has established itself on Earth and eventually must take over her evolutionary process. Then, Time, evolving out of its Zero-Womb, is the motor for what extends through the speed of consciousness to establish the solar world on Earth.

Entrance into the Zero is cosmologically possible during the period known from ancient times as the Festival of Light. In Rome it was called the Saturnalia because that Cardinal Point is Capricorn, ruled by Saturn. In terms of the harmony of our solar system and the laws of equivalence where one day equals one year, the fourth Cardinal position is Cosmic Midday. The pertinent image is the Sun directly overhead, casting no shadows – i.e. a shadowless realm or existence, with all that that implies and which the Tradition calls the Golden Age, or in India the Satya Yuga, the Age of Truth-Consciousness. It is said that the Gods walk the Earth in the Golden Age; but what is meant is that the solar world (Swar) has ‘descended’ bringing into the evolutionary process its higher laws, implanting a new divine Purpose in the heart of humanity – indeed, raising the level from a mental to a supramental species.

 

When it is known that the laws of physics break down ‘on the other side’, we understand that the answers we seek regarding the world and evolution cannot come through the contemporary disciplines by which we probe the cosmos from this side. Integrality and unity are the keywords in the New Way, both of which are impossible to realise through contemporary science. It is evident on the other hand that these realisations are part and parcel of the solar world – its very essence in fact. Thus, to attempt to use features of the New Way to validate the discoveries of the scientist is misplaced. The New Way is its own science. Born of the truth-conscious solar world, it alone explains the laws and functioning of anything to do with that higher realm – i.e. the appearance of Vishnu’s Avatars. They are known as offspring of the Time-Spirit; as such and considering that Time arises in that womb of essentiality, we could call these emanations offspring of the Sun as well. Moreover, as the only physical embodiments of that solar essentiality, it is not surprising that the higher laws are revealed through their very births recorded in universal calendar time – a method verifiable by all.

There is always a tendency in the human being to measure or evaluate anything new on the basis of the Known. One trained in science will seek to use science as the barometer: everything else must make sense in relation to that. Or else, as we have witnessed from time to time, there is an attempt to gauge the value of the New Way on the backdrop of a commitment to a path of yoga or a philosophy that had arisen during previous Ages. The psychotherapist will do the same by isolating certain features of the Integral Yoga which seem to include certain tenets of psychology. In doing so these attempts to understand a system complete in itself by reference to any of the known disciplines would be placing severe limitations on the New Way, the very limitations that have stymied progress along the lines mentioned. To put the lesser in its rightful place within the whole a higher synthesis is required which by its very nature of integrality can make sense of what lies at levels beneath it. That higher synthesis is then all-embracing and brings completion to the analysis which had been withheld in previous lower hemisphere attempts to understand our world. The imagery of The Magical Carousel can help us appreciate what it means to have an all-encompassing vision: it is as if we stand on the mountain top with Omanisol, beneath whose feet lies all of material creation.

The question of a universal calendar merits clarification since it becomes the tool for verification rather than the complicated mathematics suited to an elite. Such a calendar encapsulates for the masses the cosmic harmony that is a direct extension of the harmonies of the solar world. This means that the rhythms of our third planet from the Sun will express for us that essentiality through the lived experience of her orbital dance around the luminary. Like a carousel horse she experiences several motions which are her unique way of giving expression or form to her upholding Essence. Similar to a gestation, the Earth holds these rhythms within herself to become for us the embodiment of the solar essence. Therefore, to ignore her rhythms and pulsations in favour of heavenly or extra-cosmic harmonies far removed from her experience, is to do a serious disservice to our Mother. A true calendar must therefore regulate these terrestrial harmonies as they unfold in the course of the Earth’s orbit of the Sun in 365 days, which are then divided into sections marked off eternally and accurately by the Cardinal Points four times a year. These rhythms are simple, visible and materially provable.

Because the laws of the solar world operate in a true Centre, Skambha can help those who come into its atmosphere to get in touch with their essential being. The practical result is a re-focussing of their lens of perception within the context of that essentiality, into a world of unity beyond the binary constraints we are accustomed to. Centred thus, all then serves the purposes of the One – positive or negative. Focussing the lens assists us in ‘seeing in understanding’ whereby we are able to discriminate between the two and gradually reach a poise of consciousness that furthers only the positive and does not require the negative any longer. This is what is meant by standing beneath the ray of the midday Sun, casting no shadows. The Mother captured this poise in her plan of the inner chamber and knew from the outset that it was the ‘symbol of the future realisation’.

The Miracle of Oneness 8

‘We have then an identical apex atop the pyramid of Sri Aurobindo’s symbol proportionate to the one at Giza when the Great Pyramid fulfilled its function involving space. In the Mother’s chamber time is the issue, because of which consciousness is central. With time we are dealing with the other side, as it were, before the event horizon, pre-‘big bang’ or whatever, pre-space, or before compacted, compressed Time gave birth to the One, or the point of space. In Egypt the principle or the cosmic direction in operation was expansion, proper to space. In the Mother’s plan the direction is contraction, proper to time. Contraction in turn is necessarily linked to gravity. Perhaps for this reason secular science has not cracked the gravity conundrum as yet and cosmologists pin their hopes on discovering the theory that unifies everything for a breakthrough in precisely the question of gravity’s function. Hence the discovery of the exact mass in the universe is a burning question. Indeed, we are so much in the thickest darkness that in spite of our dazzling technology and mental prowess in mathematics, 96% of that mass is unknown, unaccounted for, and is thus called ‘dark matter’. It is out of the reach of our instruments of measure.
‘Indeed, the answers are beyond our reach because they lie ‘on the other side’. Not transcendental somehow, disconnected from the immanence of the time and space we know, but an involved transcendence yet ever ‘dark’ because this question of the three dimensions of compressed time (9/6/3) giving birth to the One through the compact 0 of fullness (0-1) is ignored. For this reason the Supramental Solar Line descends into Earth time – to imprint that code in the heart of material creation as a functioning, living and determining principle ever after. This is the foundation of the new creation, this simple equation: 9/6/3/0-1.’

The question of mass and alignment
‘The pre-Pharaonic Egyptians understood the question of mass. The Great Pyramid provides the proof. Science has not addressed this aspect of the colossus yet, mainly because it still refuses to accept that its builders possessed a science and technology far beyond ours. It is impossible, they sustain, and therefore they refuse to look at it, in spite of the ground reality.
‘The answer we seek in the Great Pyramid lies in its mass which involves the most baffling aspect of the structure: the size and positioning of the massive stones that tightly and accurately constitute this mass. But there is more, and this involves alignment and the core, which in turn are provided by shafts of great precision traversing the Pyramid, and the chambers at specific locations and of specific dimensions. . . .’

This quote from Chronicles of the Inner Chamber reveals how accurate perceptions were at the time, almost 9 years ago. But there was that telling piece missing, the same as it has been missing for scientists – this question of gravity, its origin and function which then allow it to be integrated. How fascinating that in my work it was also gravity/contraction that was holding out. However, this is Supermind in action, unlike with contemporary Science. Thus, this perception of gravity/contraction is withheld as a part of a controlled process of unveiling. That missing piece is unfolded in a natural organic order – and it is always there as part of the process but withheld or veiled. The veil is lifted when the time comes for its integration to make greater sense. Supermind moves from truth to greater truth. Therefore, unlike in Science, when gravity/contraction is unveiled as it is, there is no contradiction, no need to discard the perceptions so far: it is just another layer of petals that open making the rose that much more beautiful.

Gravity would necessarily be the problem because it resides on the other side. Without that connection this particular force eludes integration – as it had done for me and for physicists and scientific cosmologists. But simultaneity holds the key. I always held the perception to be true that contraction and expansion were simultaneous; but only now does it all fit into place, with contraction/gravity being the very element that can effectively ‘put each thing in its place’. This is the primary function of Mahasaraswati, the reigning Goddess of our 9th Manifestation.

 

All along I have been asking the scientific sceptic to explain how a series of births could unfold according to the Supramental Formula as in the Lunar and Solar Lines. None have taken up the challenge because their only conclusion would have to be to label the phenomena ‘coincidental’. This might have been true if it were just two or three such ‘coincidences’ – but over a dozen? Moreover on page after page of The New Way these coincidences are revealed. Each one goes to strengthen the original premise: the link to the other side of the event horizon or beyond the singularity. Therefore, in this simple manner, which requires no complicated math, the proof of Supermind’s controlling power is made evident.

I have also seen a decided coherency in this string of ‘coincidences’ on page after page of The New Way. These births with their respective dates and timings have furnished, if not proof at least confirmation of certain features of the new cosmology which are overlooked in other disciplines; and they all tend to highlight the role of the Earth in the cosmic harmony and how all measuring must be done from this third planet of the System.

The number of years in one round of the Precession of the Equinoxes is another case in point. They are 25,920. As noted in TNW2, each member of the fourfold Solar Line fills this 25920 ‘formula’ by the reduction of their birthdates to their seed digits thus: the Mother – 2; Sri Aurobindo – 5. These are then separated by the thousand mark to then continue with the third in the Line, Thea – 9; and the Fourth – 2. But what is overlooked when researchers employ the Precession with regard to ancient monuments in archaeo-astronomy for instance, is that the Precession is established by the slow gyration of the Earth’s equinoctial plane. They search in the beyond, thousands of light years away for the answers they seek, and become lost in that great womb of the past. They tend to view the constellations as the origin of the phenomenon, or at least as the ‘face’ of the cosmic clock wherein we measure the flow of the astrological ages.

Similar to the equal divisions of the Nakshatras, the sphere within which the equinoctial plane is tracing a circle in 25,920 years is simply the circle divided into 12 parts, the same way we divide the ecliptic plane. The actual constellations, each of greatly varying dimensions, play no role in the exercise. It is possible that a particular star in the constellation serves as a pointer or marker and can therefore provide a clue to the Age when, for example, the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid were built; but those physical constellations play no further role. The astrological ages (and the 12 Manifestations in a larger application) are simply equal divisions of 30 degrees each of the circle of the heavens circumscribing the Earth. That is, the heavens seen and measured from our planet. Again I must repeat, all measuring is done from the Earth.

In this exercise the mystery of the precise unfolding of the Ages cannot be solved as Nirayana Astrology seeks to do by trying to pinpoint a starting point in this circle with no beginning or end, properly speaking. The age-old mystery of mysteries is how to locate that Zero Point, because without it the heavens are devoid of meaning and can be all things to all men. After all, there are no equinoxes or solstices ‘out there’. Thus, the Earth, based on these Cardinal Points, can provide the accuracy that would be otherwise lacking.

The mystery is solved by sruti, hearing the sacred Word, or revelation. And this date is then confirmed by the Vishnu Avatar who takes birth precisely so that its timing will confirm the sruti scientifically, as it were. With the descent of the Avatars only every 6480 years, once in each quarter of the Precessional Round, that is when the cosmic clock can be re-set. Again we see that the birthdate, in this case of the Vishnu Avatar, holds the key to accuracy.

This re-setting has been done in our times through the birthdates of the members of the Solar Line which serve as ‘hands’ of the cosmic clock. But the Avatar is denied his birthright in the very land that treasures the legend of the Dasavataras. Therefore, Hindus cannot move along with the Time-Spirit and consciously assist in the transformative work of the Avatar. Their ‘clock’ is off by 23 days. According to the measure provided by the Precession, that would be 72 years per degree/day – a total of 2160 minus1656 years before the new Age will dawn for Hindus. It is so true that a prophet is never recognised in the land of his birth.

 

Thus a string of birthdates is the only formula required to prove the reality of the ‘other side’ with its determining power. Our physical universe is simply the extension of the essentiality of Being in this act of Becoming when the threshold is crossed. Space is the servant of Being, the fourth dimension of Time. However, there must be a truth-essence by which we can verify the process as one of truth-consciousness. This is provided by the 9th Avatar himself when he enshrined the sacred Formula at the heart of his own symbol: 9/6/3. It was then demanded of him that he continue the process through to its logical conclusion by becoming the Immanent of his transcendent Self as the 9 in the Formula. And thus, by his own birth and death and rebirth – in a continued line in time, from that side to this and back again to then be be re-born and thus to cement the highest truth of all times in the evolutionary blueprint: the complete formulation of Transcen-dence to Immanence, or 0 to 1. After his triumphant return the Formula stands completed: 9/6/3/0-1.
In the view of Plato creation is nothing other than God ‘geometrising’. In the vision of the New Way, his perception is given a practical application which was lacking in ancient Greece. He would not have been able to draw his vision out of the realm of philosophy. Therefore we refer to this as an applied cosmology.

With the final piece added to the formulation it becomes possible to appreciate Plato’s vision in greater depth because we perceive both sides of the divide – spatial deployment where geometry is the tool, and then into essential Being when Time alone is seen as the first cause, if you will. This in the New Way becomes subject to the measurement of the Geometry of Time, a formulation unknown in the ages prior to the manifestation of Supermind. God, in this New Way does indeed geometrise; but first and foremost with Time. When the threshold is crossed to materiality, spatial geometry can evolve; but for the New Way it is still the Geometry of Time that authenticates and concretises what lies on the other side. The key to this transcription – subtle to physical – is Harmony, the very character of a creation in matter, a creation of 9. That is, the full scale or all Tones enter into the play of the Many on this side of the divide. The difference between the Age of Supermind and former times is found in the number system utilised for measuring. In Greece, as in Egypt, Mesopotamia and elsewhere in the old world, the scale went from the number 1 to 10. This is made evident in the system Pythagoras introduced which was the basis for all formulation then. The symbol he devised to convey this scale was the Tetraktys, a triangle consisting of 10 dots. As I pointed out elsewhere, there was no place for the Zero in his system; that means there was no place for what the Zero implies: the essential upholder of the material creation is Time, and hence the passage from spatial to temporal geometry as a measuring tool.

To be able to incorporate the Zero we have to see the scale as India has done – 0 to 9, no longer issuing from 1. Only with that perception can we bridge subtle and physical. The 0 holds the 9 but as triads – this is important to note because then the persistence of the Trinity in all philosophies and the theologies of numerous religions is understood. As the physicist-chemist Dr Peter Plichta, understood, the triadic pattern is expressed throughout our material universe, from macro- to microcosm.1 But Plichta was not bold enough to carry his perception into the subtle plane of the Zero. He too, it seems, was bound by the limitations science imposes.

Our universe, being the extension of the Zero’s compaction, can only extend what is in the Zero-Seed. Therefore, its harmony must be perceivable with the same coherency we find through-out the new cosmology. The latest veil that has been lifted can allow for deeper dimensions of the Zero – and indeed of the entire scale – to express itself according to the supramental formula and its laws. It becomes applicable when we see the scale played out in our solar system (macrocosm). In that perception the 0 is the Sun (logically) and the planets are the 9 Tones that owe their being to the Zero-Sun. We wish to confirm the carry-over from the plane of essentiality as a projection of the 0 to 9 scale; moreover, it is not just a theory or an abstraction as it was for Plato, relying only on a subjective perception or realisation. This essentiality has to be perceived by all and measurable in a simple manner open to all.

Materialisation of the scale reaches the point where it passes beyond theory with the descent of Vishnu’s Avatar – precisely the 9th to complete the scale.

In the new cosmology the Zero is the Sun of our solar system. Therefore, when it is called into play we realise that we are interacting with what the Rishis called Swar – not heaven but simply the solar world. I have discussed this solar essence when analysing the number harmonies of the Solar Line. I explained that being of the essence of the Sun or having descended (vertically) into this material universe from the solar world, this essentiality would be reflected in their very births, via their date of entry as a whole triadic unit, the essence of 9 playing itself out here in the form of a harmony of 3, 6, 9. But being from the solar world it is only the year – the property of the Sun – that is required to transcribe the essence of the solar world into the material extension of itself; always on the basis of 9 and its triadic harmony. Thus the three years in question, in a descending order, are Sri Aurobindo, 1872=9; the Mother, 1878=6; and Thea, 1938=3. Their full birth digits are also used as I explained in The Miracle of Oneness 7, but the imprinting demanded in this descent from the solar world is attained when the years alone are counted – solar in essence, being of the Zero.

The Lunar Line, on the other hand, was not a descent from the solar world of Swar. Therefore the full digits of their births were required – day, month and year – because the Moon is like a relay station. It does not orbit the Sun directly as our planet does; its orbit of the Earth serves her purposes primarily. The Earth receives the Moon’s input as if from a relay station (reflected light) and places that at the service of the One in the form of the Zero-Sun which she orbits to map out the year.

This is the manner in which the Zero-Seed triadic harmonics become expressed in our universe. And for this reason our universe displays such an exquisite harmony, which science cannot explain and which theologians seek to explain as the work of God. However, that ‘work’ is far more ‘scientific’ and materially measureable than any religion cares to acknowledge. But it is its own science, the understanding of which cannot be grasped through scrutiny of contem-porary science and an attempt made to use the new cosmology to validate the former. It is the other way around. Sense is made of science’s limitations by the new cosmology first and foremost. One cannot reach truths of the solar world through contemporary science because of its imperfections and serious limitations. It ignores essentiality entirely which is the foundation of our material universe that it seeks to understand. To attempt to do so carries one deeper and deeper into the labyrinth of chaos.

The Miracle of Oneness 7

Part 7 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

Truly new doors of perception have opened. All one has to do is observe the surrounding circumstances of the work at Skambha with the newly re-focussed lens, and without fail it is an engagement of equivalency and correspondence, as it was for the Rishis of old. Because of the latest breakthrough, last night, so completely I ‘felt’ surrounded by the Rishis who were all smiling…

This has been a special moment at Skambha and those who were able to withstand the intensity benefitted from being here. But even those who could not, who fled, can benefit from observing themselves and their responses to the pressure of Contraction – namely M and F.

Through them and their respective responses to the pressure – atmospheric pressure (AP), shall we say – I understood more deeply the world situation and perhaps what lies ahead. M’s response was immediate, impelled from the vital, unreflecting flight; and his profession has certainly reinforced the tendency. On the other hand, F was also overtaken by the urge to flee; but his response was more mental rather than vital as it was in M’s case. He reflected, calculated his moves carefully. In both cases I was given to see the state of the world – i.e. what historians call the old world and the new; or Europe, the old world (and Asia as well, but not exactly defined in the same way because of the limbo Asia was nestled in while Europe dominated the world); and the Americas, the new world. I believe that having these two ‘continental representatives’ at Skambha in this pregnant moment was carefully arranged to show me what lies ahead. What emerged was a penetration more deeply into the essential being of these two ‘worlds’, their pulses, as it were.

Once again these reflections brought forward what I have long known: the geographic births of each member of the Solar Line was also carefully crafted to highlight the two worlds, old and new; or the two ‘creations’ within which each member must carry out their respective labour/yoga.1

Both Sri Aurobindo and the Mother were products of the old world – the Mother by virtue of her birth in Paris which in the 19th and early 20th Centuries was the cultural hub of the world. Sri Aurobindo passed all of his formative years in the old world, though having been born in India. This piece of the mosaic is important because it reveals how India straddles both worlds – old and new. To bear in mind is the fact that Sri Aurobindo’s birth occurred when India had become an extension of that old world. It was the prized ‘jewel in the crown’ of the imperialistic power, of which it was said the Sun never set on its empire. Clearly his birth in the midst of that culminating falsehood, the last gasp before dying of the prevalent Piscean colonisation culture, was purposeful. India witnessed through this exercise the great shift from Pisces to Aquarius in 1926.

The two Continental Representatives at Skambha during these momentous days responded according to the essential nature of the old and the new worlds. The difference lies in a culture dominated by fear (the old world) and hence favouring the status quo; the other is characterised by an unthinking recklessness having no fear, plunging ahead on the basis of that innate fearlessness.

The question of an Anchor assumes importance in this observation. In the new Age of the Supermind the goal is to ‘anchor’ the world in the true Centre, geographical and the subtle Point that serves to connect the continents to the ‘other side’ of essential being. This had not existed in Sri Aurobindo’s time: India was void, but like unto a womb ready to give birth. His and the Mother’s Yoga was essential to permit the birth of the New Way, the new world, the new creation. It was only in 1983 that the Anchor was lowered into the womb of essential Time and India became firmly rooted – but still in time essence only. In 1986 its ‘space’ began to expand or extend that Time-Seed, but now firmly anchored to become the Stable Constant of the new creation. The Yoga of the Chamber in that special ennead, 1980-1989, was the anchoring process via the yogic construction of the Mother’s architectural plan that was the new model of the universe. Due to this fact the chamber is known as the Stable Constant at the centre of the new city-consciousness.
It is evident that the 6 and the 3 are the feminine powers suited to deal with matter, with a ‘creation in matter’, as the Mother described of the number 9. Without 6 and 3, the 9 indeed remains ‘up there’, unfulfilled, unextended, or ‘spaceless’ because Time has not crossed the threshold to reverse and extend itself and thus give rise to space. The 6 provides the horizontal expanse of 12; the Third the 9 of the temporal deployment through the year. Indeed, it is the Year that unites the two, 9 and 12. Therefore the Year was honoured above all else in the Vedic Age, as well as in the Mother’s chamber.

Over the years since 1986 Skambha has matured. As I wrote earlier, its power has increased significantly; its essential nature of Contraction – being linked directly to the Source – is felt ever more intensely. Therefore our Continental Representatives could only react as they did under the circumstances – for that power of Contraction is the same force that causes death in a mortal creation in orbit of the Void. Thus, when its power becomes more intense, instinctively the situation appears to be life-threatening. In both Representatives the responses were indicative of the continents – old and new – which they brought into the mix at Skambha by their representation at this special moment. As representative of the old world F responded as we would expect: he clung tenaciously to an anchor in the old world. Important to note is that fear coloured his response, but it did so cunningly, as we would expect of such a representation. It is the response of Europe in situations that arise where its existence is threatened.

Regarding its contemporary history, the ‘European Union’ is doomed to fail because it is, precisely, a union, and not a conglomerate of nations based on unity. Therefore there is no essential experience of such a unity that alone can be the binding adhesive of nations. The grouping can involve only superficial layers of society – i.e. an economic accommodation based on vested interests. This cannot answer the demands of the new creation that seeks to take shape. Unity can; union of vested interests cannot. In the process fear was the uppermost response in our representative of that world. To protect the vested interests of a dying world, it was necessary – nay, predictable – to resort to cunning. This is what the Mother meant when she stated that the British left something ‘rotten’ (rotting) in India (‘…quelque chose de pourri’). And this lies at the root of the divide-and-rule tactic England used to cunningly preserve its rule. After all, a world in disarray, wracked by divisiveness and strife, would ultimately benefit that dying empire. In departing the cunning tactic was to splinter, to tear asunder what it had possessed but which it was forced to leave by the mounting tensions on the world stage of the dawning New Age. This cunningness was fully on display in our continental representative’s response to Thea’s act of Seeing, even to the extent of divide-and-rule by seeking to tear the Solar Line apart, pitting his inner ‘Mother’ against Thea.

On the other hand we have the response of the representative of the new world. There was no fear present in his flight, nor for that matter any anchor. There was, however, a reckless fleeing into the arms of the Unknown, but nonetheless ultimately seeking comfort and some sort of anchoring in the known – which, ironically, for him was situated in the heart of the old world.

This is an example of how observation, when anchored in the true Centre, can reveal in the play of circumstances what IS beyond surface observation. This is the character, or the blueprint of the collective Yoga of Skambha which even its residents of long-standing miss – seeing trees, overlooking the forest. Can there be any more sublime collective yoga than what the New Way offers, where each participant is elevated, in due course of time, to the coveted status of Individual with a COSMIC PURPOSE? This is the function of the City-Consciousness, at the centre of which stands the Centre.

Bear in mind that Thea is that Anchor because she is the Centre. She brought it into being in this material creation of 9 from the plane of essentiality. It would not ‘exist’ but for her engaging in the birth process ceaselessly – the births that make all things new. Thus when her vision is rejected, that anchor is uprooted for the participant in question. The play of circumstances takes over as delegate, once Thea is rejected. The removal of the Centre is the definition of chaos – witness Auroville.

Representations, equivalencies, correspondences take place only in a true Centre. It is there that a microcosm can be equal to the macro, allowing the Seer to peer into that reduced space to understand the conditions in the larger body and to bring about changes therein. All who participate in such an exercise ‘serve the One’ in this special and sacred endeavour.

In like manner, the physical embodiment of a Centre offers a unique grace, facilitating the act of Surrender demanded in this transitional period. That embodied Centre holds the parts and the whole together seamlessly, as is the case with all circles and their peripheries. The central Point gathers (or gives birth to) the 360 degrees in toto that surround it, as well as each individual degree and/or their respective groupings – i.e. the Gnostic Circle with all its divisions.

This describes the supramental action in the world and explains why embodiments of its foundational components are necessary – some serve positively, others negatively; but all are nonetheless at the service of the One. In this instance we have been given clear indications of the approaching denouement or unravelling of the old creation, as the new rises and pushes aside the detritus of the old in an increasingly obvious manner. The weaknesses our Continental Representatives displayed will be the gaps where wedges can be driven to weaken and finally bring down the old structures. As was seen through our Representative, America’s ‘flight’ pattern is reflected in her unwillingness to have been involved in past conflicts on the world stage; hence, the need for ‘shocks’, such as in 1942 and then in 2001, to compel this involvement for the greater good, and to add its courage and daring to become the Centaur Saviour, for a time, of a world at the mercy of the Hostiles.

This exercise also shows us how to find strength in the transition by not giving in to the respective weakness. America, for example, must not allow the current economic crisis to instil the fear that Europe experiences when its boat is rocked. America, because of its ‘baggage-less’ condition, unburdened by a hoary tradition can continuously remake itself, drawing from its pool of youthful unencumbered energies. Its ‘pulse’ falls in the second quarter of the Gnostic Circle – that is, the sector governing economics, banks, energy resources, industries, and so forth. Therefore the current economic collapse can make or break the nation since at stake is indeed its survival, the health and vigour of its original Note, or its slowly diminishing power leading finally to collapse.

The situation for Europe is far more complicated because of the artificial construct of a ‘unity’ that is no unity and a oneness that does not effectively exist. Therefore each component must deal with the denouement individually, primarily by discovering that individual pulse on an individual basis. It must first recover completely from the disease of hegemonic drives – political, economic, cultural or religious – on which it had thrived in the colonial period of the Piscean era. This is the first step on the road to a real unity that goes far beyond economics. Each one must find its place within the Whole, find its individual contribution as the foundation for the manifestation of the true world unity that is striving to emerge.

 

A word needs to be stated regarding such times in the course of one’s development, times which are known in the Tradition as ‘moments of truth’. In this instance we could say we are going to examine the ‘tree’ apart from the forest. Negative responses do serve the purposes of the One, but what might be the effect on the individual? Each one must deal with the issue as best he or she can – but one thing is certain: a set of circumstances is set in motion from that moment onward based on a disconnection from the true Centre, or an interruption of the contact. The choice in such a situation is usually based on self-indulgence and ego drives and satisfactions. These are often couched in terms the ego concocts such as ‘zones of comfort’ – i.e the comfort of the past. In our particular case, both clung to their ego demands, ignoring the fact that their presences at Skambha were needed for certain specific tasks to be done. But neither could relate to that greater Good (the forest), even though the hand of the great Controller was unmistakably evident in the careful ‘set-up’ a ‘moment of truth’ requires. In other words, things were made exceptionally clear and simple: this or that. All the help had been given to overcome the lesser drives of self-centredness and to serve the higher cause positively.

Such moments of truth are rare; they do not visit everyone, only a select few. In the Gnostic Circle this would be encountering the 7 Point and being invited to ‘enter the Mountain’, those innermost reaches wherein the Axis can be forged that connects one to essentiality of Being (Omanisol). The ladder in The Magical Carousel in Capricornland is a visual image of that special axis joining the Source and its extension as a conscious state of being. Especially important is when there is a guide to help us face this moment in the best poise possible; and the recognition of such a guide is based on one who has the capacity to arrange a ‘set-up’ which will be able to serve the aspirant in this difficult moment when all is lost or all is gained. The key realisation for this purpose is the capacity to hold. One always stands alone in the Mountain Chamber. That is what is demanded of all Initiates. Only in that solitude is the Axis forged.

There is neither negative nor positive judgement when the choice is made. There is simply WHAT IS. And the negative serves the One when there is this Moment of Truth and all is brought to the light of day, when we stand naked beneath the ray of the midday Sun.


1 In a similar vein, the connection of the Lunar Line with Kashmir was pivotal when we consider the role Kashmir played from the beginning, with the Eye of Shiva therein.

The Miracle of Oneness 6

Part 6 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

I had done so much, realised so much, but only now do I understand how little I knew. Without understanding essentiality and where it lies, how could I have had accuracy? Hanneke wrote to me this morning, quoting something I had written about Omanisol in a paper in 2011, ‘Visions Unrealised’ (how apt the title!). I had already seen that Omanisol was that ‘essentiality of being’. Clearly the ladder connecting her to the Time-Spirit was absolutely accurate because that essentiality is indeed the product of Time; or rather, it uses time as its tool for deployment.1

The deductions I had made, the conclusions, the explanations were all intuitively correct; but now it is the Knowledge, the correct deductions based on higher knowledge and the accuracy of Supermind that can put each thing in its place. It is only then that a repetition of the realisation is possible in some form or another.

Now I understand why filling the Void, centering, can place us in another dimension though still here. We do occupy this space along with everything else, but centering of the New Way creates a shift in time properties. That is, it is Time that gives rise to space in the extension of Itself. But when we are compressed to a Point in that extension, we connect with the Source of our world. That is where the Point finds its being. That is the realm of Sat, Being. With that, and only that, Being and Becoming are explained as simultaneous because in this expansion of Time we carry Being as upholder (0-1) with us and we are governed by ITS laws. This means that indeed we do not ‘exist’ for the old creation (of mortality). We are here, but not here.

I have known this from 1983. I have proven it in various situations, namely the attacks like at Brooklyne in August of 1983, just months after centering and ‘filling the Void’. Even without this latest, I knew exactly how that realisation would operate, how it would put one in another dimension, but occupying the same space. I understood the mechanism, this question of being here but not occupying the same ‘space’ as others who had not ‘filled the Void’. I ‘lived’ it deeply on 24 February 1992 – 9 years after the realisation when the attack was serious, physically life threatening: it was a matter of survival. My very life depended on being governed by other ‘laws’ and therefore in a different ‘space’.

What is clear is that this connection is described in TMC in Chapter 10 (see footnote). And in the Gnostic Circle it is in Capricorn after compression to a Point by the speed of consciousness of Sagittarius. This centering is what opens the portal to that ‘other side’ – or in the Gnostic Circle it is the final quarter of the circle. Indeed, it is had always been known as heaven, or something, somewhere DISCONNECTED from our space (and time) because truly it is. The golden globes the children receive (from the TIME-Spirit, it is to be noted) stand for the Core as it would be for any cosmic body. When compression and centering have occurred, the Void is filled by drawing the Point from the plane of essentiality – plugging up the hole, as it were. Thus is the Core born. And only then can immortality be attained.

During the attacks I knew that I was operating under different laws – the rules of the game were different for me precisely because there was no Void any longer at the centre of my universe. My attackers could not reach me because I was not THERE, in that same space as they – here but elsewhere for all practical purposes. Everything appears the same and yet is different.2 It is this mechanism that allowed Carlos Castaneda to jump into the abyss without danger. When his assemblage ‘point’ had been shifted, his world shifted as well. I lived the experience pointedly, poignantly on 24.2.1992, when it mattered most. Then it too was a life or death experience.

However, to be borne in mind is that the Solar Line descends into this material creation of 9 vertically. The rest, as described in the Mother’s chamber, ascend and enter through the horizontal, from below. We descend vertically into the Globe by the power of Time directly. Therefore, when we have these experiences and realisations, they are imprinted through the Ray (the year) into the matrix.

 

My realisation of 1983 I knew was a before and after – nothing would be the same again. In that ennead I ‘constructed’ the chamber, piece by piece; again by the power of Time – each year adding another element of the design. In 1983 (=3) I placed the Globe in position at the perfect centre. It was the hardest task of my yogic life. But everything changed then. From that realisation I knew that though I stood completely alone, the Work could not fail. Time would propel it forward. A unitary world had been born or set on its way to expansion by the laws of a new Time. Very shortly after this the binary world of the two superpowers collapsed in an unexpected and sudden ‘velvet revolution’; and everything since then has been the gradual evolutionary, organic growth of a new world governed by different laws from the old, a world in ceaseless contact with the Source and therefore always ‘full’, ever replenished. The old mortal creation consumes itself through the collapse of energies into the Void at its heart. When it reaches the reversal point, growth turns into the process of decay. Thereafter, it is just a question of time…

 

The process ‘beneath’ ground level rose above from 1998. The foundation stones (Gnosis) had been successfully laid in the trenches Sri Aurobindo and the Mother had earlier dug while they laboured through the mire of the Ages amidst the negation of the old creation. For if this was to be truly a NEW world and not the old simply transforming itself, as the Mother stated, then those trenches as well had to be new, of very special and exact ‘dimensions’. Also HERE, but not here. The foundation blocks (of the New Way) were placed therein between 1971 and 1998. Thereafter, coinciding with the onset of the third millennium, this new edifice (world) began to rise above ground, made especially evident in the first 3-power year after 1998, 2001. Each year that passes offers more solidity to that structure (of the new world). It is INDESTRUCTIBLE simply because it does not occupy the same space as the old, given that its ‘space’ arises from the new Time; therefore, it has to be different. The new aphorism is that Time creates its own space for extension of Itself. Time pushes space forward, ever expanding the seed of Itself, deploying It through universal corridors ceaselessly. Therefore, to change anything here, on this side, we have to connect with that ‘Omanisol’, immobile on the mountain peak. She, as TMC explains, offers impeccable protection because of the laws of her Being which create their own ‘space’. Truly, The Magical Carousel holds all the secrets of the new way, the new realisation, the birth and development of the new world, in perhaps the most exact and astonishing prophecy ever encapsulated in Myth.

Thus it is said that Supermind creates its own conditions for its manifestation – and is its own protection from within.

Because we ‘descend’ (vertically) down the Ray, we are carriers of the seeds of Time, the new Seeds. Therefore the space we create and occupy is also new, where the seeds will sprout and grow into infinity and for all eternity.


1  ‘Therefore, who is Omanisol?  Of course we can say it is the Mother. Yes, that is true. We have Sri Aurobindo as the Time-Spirit and the ladder links to them both. But Omanisol is more than an individual incarnation: she represents a state of being. And that state is best described as Immobility amidst the Mobile (the tornado). Visions Unrealised, 10.9.2011.
2 The ‘practical’ aspect is that the play of circumstances operates differently when centering is done. One stands at the centre of a different world and the circumstances then MUST serve the purposes of the One, the Centre. Therefore, when my most ferocious attacker came at me with his club, ready to strike in a furious rage, before reaching me (completely immobile amidst the mobile – this was essential) ‘something’ intervened and drew his attention elsewhere at the very moment he would have struck me. It was so clear: something intervened. We might call this luck, the Divine intervention, etc., but the explanation is far more ‘scientific’ – but science of the New Way cosmology.

The Miracle of Oneness 5

Part 5 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

This latest Act of Seeing has brought an unexpected result. I understand why the residents of Skambha are all women, with men joining few and far between and usually for brief periods. The reason is now so clear. But it has become this clear only with the latest breakthrough; and it is as coherent as everything else connected to this work.

How did Skambha come about? In viewing its origin the affinity it has with women is natural – and obvious. Skambha is a true and indisputable ‘centre’. The physical land was discovered only after centering, as in the New Way, had occurred in 1983. It geographical coordinates fit the prescription exactly. Thus, to truly understand Skambha one has to know the nature of a true centre and how it emerges. It comes into being under intense pressure of contraction. It is spherical pressure, pressing in from all sides, converging on the Point that is forced into this material dimension from ‘the other side’, which act then results in ‘filling the Void’. This is the objective. Without that there can be no birth of the New Way on this side; and consequently no progression toward immortality. The emergence of a Centre that fills the Void is the very first step on the long road to an immortal state of being.

Thus, the issue is intense (and almost unbearable) contraction. It is as if the whole universe converges on this single Point – compressed consciousness-being. The creation of such a Centre re-enacts the act of creation itself. It emerges from the other side, from that essentiality, compelled into this material universe by the act of supreme contraction.

The difficulty lies in withstanding the pressure even and especially when it reaches an unbearable intensity, and not succumbing to the usual escape pattern of the mortal creature: death. The habit we have formed, and which we reinforce with every death or a particular psychological response pattern, is to allow ourselves the appeasement of the escape from the intense contraction by exiting this dimension. Therefore, for the mortal creation the Void becomes the soothing ‘comfort zone’. It is a mere illusion, an accommodation in defence or our mortality and the fact that as we are presently constituted, our consciousness cannot withstand the intensity of contraction that is the prerequisite for filling the Void.

I now know more in depth why I was told at the culmination of Vivienne’s birth, ‘This is why you were born a woman.’ Women have a natural affinity with contraction. Every birth is the result of contraction. The Enneagram, itself on the rhythm of 9, describes visually the contraction of the birth process. And the Enneagram is the 9 of Time, the vertical, companion to the horizontal and expansion.

These reflections also explain more pointedly why the Mother stated that her force works best through women: to ‘give birth’ to the new supramental creation that demands a centre at the heart of its fledgling cosmos, women are logically, organically more suited to the task. This has now been confirmed in full by the latest Act of Seeing.

Men do not enjoy the same affinity. Their natural poise of consciousness- being encourages flight, escape when contraction is felt. It explains why men cannot stay at Skambha. It has nothing to do with the attitude or demands of a domineering personality, as some believe. Rather, this portion of the Earth being a true Centre, enjoys an atmosphere that partakes fully of the characteristics that are required for a Centre, first of all to come into being; and then to continue an organic maturing process by the aid of Time, with which a Centre has a natural affinity. Indeed, as Time advances, so too does the power of the Centre increase. This is witnessed at Skambha. As of the past two years, since 2010 especially, Skambha’s power has increased palpably, measurable by the effects its pressure of contraction exerts on its permanent residents, but especially on the men who come into its orbit. Of late the urge to escape – in some cases almost an act of desperation, it would seem – has been evident. This indicates the increased action of the Centre. Men, as is their organic bent, have much more difficulty in withstanding the pressure of contraction. They are obliged, forced to flee because if they do not they fear they will collapse under the unbearable pressure, become irrelevant or even suffer the extinction of their manhood. Such is the intensity of the Skambha atmosphere.

Women have a poise of consciousness-being that is better suited to the atmosphere of Skambha. The monthly cycles they respond to – and which the male of the species ignores – engenders a natural affinity with the vertical of Time, and hence with the cosmic direction of contraction. Therefore Pablo once said, ‘Women are at the centre of the Earth, men outside.’ Every cosmic body, galaxy, star, planet must experience intense contraction to come into existence; or rather for the formation of that structure’s core.

The male drive to control women, to dominate them, and even to rape is due to the ever-present gnawing innermost lament at lacking the components of consciousness-being which can create in him the same affinity with contraction – because that affinity is also what makes women open and receptive to that essentiality of Being where contraction and gravity have their origin. It is this affinity that makes women feel comfortable at Skambha while men feel discomfort.

Sri Aurobindo did not succumb to the pressure of contraction. He knew how to avoid the oblivion of Death. His ally was Time; and thus was born the One. Woman cannot be the One; she is the channel for its emergence from the other side.

Roles are now more sharply defined.

Thea is unveiled at the Centre as the Centre, as holding the key to centering in her consciousness-being.

The doors of perception this opens are many. This is just the beginning.

The Miracle of Oneness 4

Part 4 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

We always marvel at the perfect harmony of our solar system, particularly displayed in the phenomenon of eclipses. But we must always remember that the 9 functions there as well – the cycle revolves around 18 (9). The spatial phenomenon simply displays the harmony of Time once again, from the other side – whole Tones transcribed here.

The exquisite harmony of our universe has no non-speculative explanation. We invoke ‘God’ to settle the matter – which explains nothing. It is all far more ‘material’. We must only refocus our lens to carry us into essentials and not take refuge in speculations and abstractions.

The universe is what it is because the creative upholding Womb is what it is. Therefore our solar system, for example, can only carry that essentiality into the extension of Itself in space. When we stand in awe of the harmonies that surround us, we are standing in awe of the face of God. The materialist, the spiritualist and religious dogmatic, will argue the issue for ever – and the twain will never meet. Both are right, yet both are wrong. They have not gone deep enough. The cosmologist believes that in the depths of space he will find the answer. Thus, he penetrates ever deeper into the past – moving thereby farther and farther away from that portal (in the present) through which he can gain entry to the secret chamber of his own soul, his very own laboratory, and touch the essence of Harmony.

Of course the upholder of Intelligent Design must sustain that only a God-like intelligence could create the perfection we see about us. Out of that equivalence, however, he must exclude the human being because his imperfections are anything but Godly.

It is all far more ‘mechanical’: whole tones of contraction – the contraction of the original triadic building blocks of creation – BECOME the universe. Holding within that compacted Seed the essence of Harmony, when expansion takes over only that triadic harmony can become the material universe.

There is no division – cut and dry. There is only reversal of the 0 to 1, which is the fourth principle of Integration. Indeed, without that 0 to 1 there is no universe, nothing binding and integrating.

The Miracle of Oneness 3

Part 3 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

I understand the difference between this side and the ‘other’ and why Number is used differently here and there. In the ‘other’ the issue is essentiality of Being. Therefore whole numbers are used as the Measure and the method used is the Mathematics of Unity. We apply the same system on this side by reducing sums to their ‘seed digits’ in order to arrive at their essentiality. It is the way we connect to ‘the other side’, or the realm of Essence and essentiality of Being.

The proof of the accuracy of the system on this side is reached through application of the Formula, 9/6/3/0-1. This is done initially by following a series of births equalling those essential Numbers. The avataric emanations of Vishnu take birth according to that harmony because they serve as the Bridge to ‘the other side’. Without their births we have no non-speculative proof of that essentiality or the bridge linking Essence and Form of this material universe. Nor can those essential ‘tones’ be imprinted in our matrix of evolution.

The number system universally used is superbly suited to bringing the highest truth within the easy grasp of humanity. The Zero is of course the prime innovation. When that was ‘seen’ (in India) the seed was planted and the manifestation of Supermind was inevitable. The Zero, like the Shruti, holds the key.

On the ‘other side’ ‘whole tones’ describe accurately the Essence which is carried over to this side in the manifestation of the universe. There is really no separation between the two – essence or essentiality and form, or a creation in matter. We ‘see’ only the latter. The Sage ‘sees’ essence as originator, and then upholder of Form without division.

So, to discover essential Being in this material creation we reduce sums to their seed digits. That tells us the Note that resonates through the object or person. But the single-most important aspect of the New Way is the Solar (and Lunar) Line. This is how we prove that this harmony, the magnificence of the Formula, originates on the other side. Without the existence of the Lines, falling in the structure of the Formula, or striking these whole Tones on this side, in this expansion of that essential Being, there could be no empirical proof of the accuracy of the new cosmology. We do not require complicated mathematics to understand. We ‘see in understanding’ because we realise the function of the Vishnu Avatars and their periodic appearances to be that proof. With that key alone the proof is presented. Supermind not only creates the condition for its manifestation, it provides its own proof of accuracy through the simple understanding of the oneness of 0 and 9.

We ‘see’ the Zero as the womb of essentiality of Being. We ‘see’ that very same essentiality extended in the material universe from that Zero via the reversal that carries the vertical into and through the horizontal; and by this shift or reversal the Absolute engenders the material universe out of his own Being. We ‘see’ the Zero as rest, the 9 as motion – but rest born of compaction, and motion born of that compaction, not the sterility of statics. We ‘see’ both directions as simultaneous features of our universal manifestation – one without the other is separative and delusional and the cause of all our woes: the Void, Nothingness, static Peace all describe incomplete perceptions which, when the Truth-Consciousness is unveiled, when the lid covering the Sun is finally removed, constitute the very epitome of Falsehood. They prolong the reign of the Ignorance and subjugation to the Lord of Death.

That India lies at the centre of the Age of Supermind cannot be doubted. Her role was revealed when the Rishi first ‘saw’ the Zero. With that Fullness was ‘seen’ as the womb of creation. The reign of the Void had come to an end in the flash of that Seeing. For the rest the 9, or the power of Time, gestated that new Supramental Creation whose birth then occurred in this 9th Manifestation.

The entire saga is explained through the analogy of music: over there the 9 notes exist as whole Tones, in that essentiality they are like pulsations – indeed, the pulsations of the Sun, 9 in our 24-hour day, one pulsation each 2 hours and 40 minutes. The Sun carries this harmonic pulsation into and through its planetary family. But only the Earth, third in the system, is equipped with a mechanism that renders the tones/pulsations sounded on the other side audible, measureable here. After the reversal, because of movement harmonies are made possible based on the essential 9 tones. The Zero never ceases to be the upholding Womb – as even as its tones/pulsations expand in space in a ceaseless display of Harmony. Thus harmony is the property of the Third Principle. It is the contribution of the Third in the Line.

Only in the classical music of India of the Carnatic tradition do we find the most faithful expression of the Supreme Truth. Only in Carnatic music of India can we ‘hear’ the oneness of Essence and Form.

The Miracle of Oneness 2

Part 2 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

Dark energy or matter is not to be measured as we would in ordinary circumstances. This is a property of the Zero. It is ‘dark’ because like the compacted ‘sound’ in the Zero which we cannot hear, we cannot ‘see’ this energy – which actually is not an energy. It is an all-pervading cosmic direction, or alignment. It ‘holds’ by virtue of this contracting action in counterbalancing the expansion on this side. Clearly the wrong tools are used in measuring because they do not know what it is exactly, and they then apply the laws of physics which hold for the One and its expansion. We know it is there by its effects. We conclude, we deduce that this is more than 90% of our universe – and yet we do not know how to measure it!

Dark matter is beyond the Expansion, beyond its laws. It is the origin of gravity on this side; and certainly gravity is the force that resists integration. It must because its own roots or origin on the other side are unknown. Scientists do not know how to approach it, how to bring it within the ambit of the other forces and the laws that govern them. To understand the origin of the gravitational force we must know Time. That knowledge lies ‘on the other side’ – hence it eludes the physicist.

Time is ‘measured’ on this side through the process of birth measurable by the calendar which is a faithful reproduction of the harmonies of our solar system. The December Solstice is the doorway to ‘the other side’ when perihelion occurs and there can be contraction to a point; hence in all advanced cultures it was given prominence, like the temple at Konarak, Egypt where the rising Sun on that solstice occurs each year exactly between two pillars/walls. How exquisitely the passage to the other side was portrayed.

A calendar like the current one used by Hindus completely distorts this experience. According to the Nirayana astrologer that sunrise would be measured 23 days AFTER the event, and of course the synchronisation would fail – as would the entire Vedic method of equivalencies.

OM, like the raga/shruti, also provides the correct understanding of the origin of things, with the three stages of contraction (in the primordial vibration) leading to a Zero/fourth. So accurate, yet so unproductive in this science-maddened society that has lost all touch with its ancient wisdom.

Thus, the harmony of our solar system, and the Earth’s contribution to the composition, is the display of what lies beyond. Our solar system is unique because it faithfully transcribes in space the grand harmony that exists on the other side of materiality. And the contribution of the Earth is to offer the key through the December Solstice to the portal that can carry us to that beyond in full consciousness. Not to heaven or hell or extra-cosmos, but rather into the deepest dimension of our material reality. We are contracted to a ‘point’ in the deepest recesses of the soul where we experience the same 9, 6, 3 – or the Transcendent, Cosmic and Individual trinity. Only birth on Earth allows us to do so because the soul is the special quality of this third planet. We can make of our sojourn here an Underworld where the Dark Lord Pluto reigns; or we can, thanks to the supramental Truth-Consciousness, bring what lies in the core of ourselves to the surface and then to establish life on Earth according to those triadic principles of the New Way formula. The Avatar comes for this: to open the way by his birth and death and conscious re-birth for this foundational experience.

The Miracle of Oneness

Part 1 of 9 in the series The Miracle of Oneness

I have finally seen something that I have been missing since the beginning – contraction and expansion are indeed simultaneous. This was a most accurate perception. But they are not happening here at the same time. Contraction is a property of the Zero, not the One. This I know. But my mistake, of sorts, has been a serious one. Contraction is on the other side; and it is constant. It is the cosmological constant Einstein finally disowned. He had the right perception, but since the laws of physics and mathematics break down in the singularity, he could not ‘prove’ the point. Indeed, he had always to deal with the Point. He could not ever conceive of the Zero. Therein unity holds – i.e., the Mathematics of Unity. There Number IS, whole and complete in itself. Physics, math as we know them cannot explain – much less prove – the elegant simplicity of that Unity. Whole numbers, as number-powers, alone ‘explain’ reality.

The Zero/Contraction is what holds the universe together. It is the binding force – the eternal all-pervading Centre. Without that there is no universe at all. And those number-powers encapsulate the Transcendent, the Cosmic, the Individual Soul. These are the triadic principles of all creation, of all created things. These principles through the 0/1 are at the root of our universal manifestation – and they are the components of the individual Soul, our vahana in this material creation of 9.

This is the magnificence of the 9 – the number-power of the Divine Mother as India has long understood…

Everything I have perceived and written since the beginning is true. But now, 36 years after the most important breakthrough of the Avatar’s descent, the final ingredient has come which has eluded me all along. Yes, Contraction and Expansion are indeed simultaneous. But I could not formulate accurately and completely how this simultaneity is experienced – factually – in the universe. Now it has come, 36 years after the first Seeing. It has come.

On this side we experience Expansion. It cannot be otherwise given Time’s ‘arrow’. But Contraction is ever present there always. It is not that it ceases at the threshold and Expansion takes over. Indian classical music expresses it perfectly: the Shruti never ceases. It upholds the expansion of Sound that arises from the Silence – silence to us because it is on the other side of our material threshold. Therefore, to our senses it appears as silence. But really it is Sound compacted – all sound in a seed. We have no faculty to ‘hear’ sound compacted. And this is the marvel and the beauty and the grace of a material manifestation. And more particularly of our Earthly evolution. Here, perhaps unique in the universe, we can SEE, and HEAR along with the Supreme. To see, to hear his own essence the Supreme requires a creation of the 9 – otherwise IT just IS, but IT cannot know this Is-ness. It is therefore impoverished, incomplete, diminished – unembellished.

Like the raga that compacted Sound experiences itself as embellishment, raga, melody. Therefore, there can be an infinite number of ragas because everything is contained in the Zero. That is why Nothingness is a falsehood, a distortion of the Absolute Reality. Only Fullness describes the true reality of our world.

This is a glorious day. Christians celebrate it as the death of the Son Crucified. They had not gone far enough. They have not seen the Son Victorious. Only India has…

It is curious how this tiny missing piece, just a more finely adjusted, focussed lens, can make all the difference in the world. Now perception is whole and sound – and indestructible.

Everything was correct all along: the One is that Fourth of the Solar Line where reversal takes place. Indeed – contraction and expansion, vertical to horizontal. It has all been true, been seen for the past 40 years; but this small element can make all the difference in the world. IT ALONE IS VICTORY – the Victory that ever IS.

Yes, the Becoming is the most blessed component of Reality because it allows the Absolute to see and to know his own essential Being. Therefore Being and Becoming too are simultaneous because it is that BEING that extends, and in the extension of Itself, knows and sees and experiences Itself. Hence Oneness is the very essence of the Absolute. Without it there is no Seeing or Knowing: the Absolute constantly dissolves into the stillness of Its eternity and infinity. But in our universe, on Earth, we can live the Absolute’s eternity and infinity in Time and Space which are the material expressions ON THIS SIDE of the Its Eternity and Infinity.

Einstein caught the tail of it, but the limitations of his discipline would not permit him to ‘cross the threshold’ to the other side. Indeed, that discipline broke down and he had to retreat, calling his cosmological constant the ‘biggest blunder of his life’. Whereas all he had to do was to plunge and discover the essential and complete nature of Reality. But he was trapped by the limitations of his discipline, trapped in the Becoming alone ignoring the oneness of Being and Becoming, of the 0 and the 9.

Today, April 6 we reach the bottom of the Core’s Pedestal [see The New Way, Vol. 2] – the point of the Return, of the reversal from the vertical of the descending Ray, and the horizontal Base of the Mother’s symbol. Truly the Inner Chamber holds all the secrets of the Future Realisation. And that ‘future’ today becomes the Present – if we but see.

This is the secret of Oneness. Indeed all is one – there and here. The separation exists only in our limitations, our divisiveness. We must see and live that Oneness. In that experience lies the key to salvation.
