Question: Why imperative?
The Mother: Because we are at one of those moments Sri Aurobindo calls ‘Hour of God’, and evolution has taken an accelerated and intensified movement. (The Mother, 22.2.1967)
The new cosmology is a revolutionary formulation that could only be accomplished in this 9th Manifestation because it requires the descent of the Solar Line in Earth time to concretise the formulation; the tag of ‘theoretical’ – common to all contemporary scientific cosmologies until proven otherwise – is absent in this applicable cosmology that is perceived and formulated through its own manifestation as it unfolds in Earth time.
At the heart of all cosmology stands Time – and yet it is the cosmic property humanity knows so little of; we experience it only as the various methods of organising our individual and collective lives; or else as the drainer of the energy we accumulate from birth onward, until at the mid-point of our lives reversal takes place and we start unwinding. Then Time becomes the implacable consumer of the energy we had spent the first half accumulating. To date nothing has been able to conclusively arrest this irreversible process of Life leading to Death, increase then decrease, expansion then contraction.
Don Juan, the Nagual Teacher of Carlos Castaneda’s experience, described the phenomenon as an Eagle voraciously consuming the energy that human beings release at death. The process he set before himself and his pupils was to ‘cheat the Eagle’ by not becoming his ‘food’. It was what might be called a ‘conscious death’. His teaching was remarkably accurate for the individual; he never applied it to the entire cosmic manifestation, much less to the existence of the Earth and the evolutionary process she houses. (See The Fire From Within, Carlos Castaneda, 1984.)
The New Way, on the other hand, recognises the published works on don Juan’s teachings as perhaps the most relevant contribution to the transformation in the store of New Age literature; but the only problem is that today systems cannot be satisfying unless they are comprehensive. This, in fact, is the scourge of contemporary society: compartmentalisation accompanied by incompletion. Whatever science has produced is the result of incomplete processes; in such a case a destructive winding down is inevitable. Mind, which is itself divisive, cannot conceive of unity: what is created in such an atmosphere invariably has a downside – nuclear power, for instance.
Salvation today is described by one simple word: completion. This is the grace the new cosmology offers to seekers. It is the only system that is founded precisely on whole processes. In the new cosmology this is expressed by the Solar Line and through their lives it becomes the lived experience for the Earth because they render Time an Ally and no longer the Destroyer that Time must necessarily be if it is to bring in ‘food for the Eagle’.
The descent of the complete Solar Line radically alters beliefs that have imprisoned the human consciousness for the better part of the past 2000 years, and they still cast a gloom over our planet. The problem is that we were always faced with incompletion, particularly glaring in the last century, making it the most dangerous in the current period of recorded history. The danger became acute during the very last stage of the supramental process. This was the process of carrying the Transcendent to the Immanence of himself in 1963. For this reason the Mother stated that the most difficult years were 1963 and 1964, (The Mother’s Agenda, 1961) and if we could get past that the victory was assured. The reason for this categorical statement is because the final descent to complete the Line had to be without severing the thread of Time over that very period. The 9th Avatar’s most important labour was the 9th becoming the 10th in an unbroken line of time. In the Rig Veda it is noted that this passage is difficult; and if we consider the One Circle as described in the Veda covering twelve stages/signs/ages/manifestations, the 9th does indeed stand before the 10th opening to the last of the four quarters, which until now could only be accessed through death.
The Rishis certainly bridged the abyss to Swar in their individual yogas, but did that have an effect on the rest of society? Insofar as it might have, this will help us understand why its hymns are not understood by scholars and yogic practitioners alike. Our contemporary society is truly a world apart. If we could be transported back in time to the Vedic Age, it would certainly be like visiting another planet in another solar system.
Since this passage, 9 to 10, has been successfully accomplished, this is what establishes the inevitability of the Supramental Manifestation: it is based on the oneness of Transcendent and Immanent, the passage from the highest heights of the Supramental Plane and the compression of that vastness into the Seed of Itself. This functions then as a magnetic centre that irrevocably draws that future closer because of attraction based on the affinity of oneness, given the proper alignment, like magnets of north and south poles. In the Gnostic Circle there is a visual image of that north/south polarity in the connection between the 0/9 Point/Orbit and its opposite the 4.5 Orbit of the Asteroid Belt because of the continuity in time. Is this the power that caused the shattering in the orbit between Mars and Jupiter with its massive attractive force? Or the impact of the reverse, repulsion that could pull things apart before a certain maturity had been reached in the evolving system or planet or process – much the same as what the evolution of consciousness on Earth passes through when faced with the inability to withstand pressure. This is the difficulty of the 9 becoming the 10 expressed in the Rig Veda; without the completed process, the individual or society that seeks to move ahead boldly and cross the threshold to materialise ‘heaven on Earth’, forces collapse (due to an inadequate balance) and the Eagle of Death receives his food; we fall back into the 8th sign, Scorpio, known as the sign of Death in the zodiac and our journey in Earth time ends there: we never move into the last quarter of the 12.
Naturally nothing of this is acceptable to contemporary science (or spirituality) because it is an entirely new understanding of the evolutionary process, at least within the present precessional cycle of 25,920 years; we have no previous models to turn to. But if there is a disruption in the operation before establishing a balance or new alignment, then the magnetism is so overpowering that there is a risk of collapse into a black hole, as it were; or conversely, a shattering due to an opposite polarity. What is described is an aspect of Time entirely ignored by both science and spirituality, hence the Mother advocated the Third Thing beyond them both (1962). And this came to be known as the New Way with its revolutionising language and cosmology.
It was in 1963 that the Transcendent entered Earth time as the Immanent Seed – that is, as the infinitesimal magnetic point lodged in the centre of the circle’s centre, to describe it geometrically. The danger arises in that when this occurs the process is complete and can then never be reversed. What this indicates for the mentally-poised civilisation of today is that there is now only one possible pathway to the Future; and that Future is the blueprint Sri Aurobindo mapped out in his Yoga, by which means the Transcendent draws the Present to itself irresistibly. Nothing can stand in its way. The necessity for his re-entry in Earth time via a connected thread was the only way to secure that the new future would be indelibly stamped or imprinted in the evolutionary matrix, with the required magnetism to draw that future into manifestation in our material plane.
Cosmologists like Stephan Hawking realise the perilous moment we have reached, perhaps due to the destructive weaponry we are stock-piling coupled with the deterioration of the environment. His solution was migration to Mars (as if the transported mental human being would not wreck havoc there as well!). However, as erudite as they may be, physicists and cosmologists ignore the true reality of creation and can assess the future only on the basis of incomplete paradigms. But just as the old creation is doomed and resistances are swept away, so too is the inevitability of the new world a reality – in fact, it is the only reality. It can be said that anything born within the framework of incompletion (everything we have known during our period of recorded history) is unreal. Therefore, only those phantom formations are doomed. Ultimately, the Eagle is going to be cheated as never before, and not just by an individual or a select group, as in don Juan’s school.
Over the decades of involvement with this Work, one thing has become very clear: unless a process of yoga includes four stages, it cannot be Supramental; hence Sri Aurobindo stated that the Square was the geometric symbol of the Supermind. What Supermind adds to the symbolism is application through the executing agency of Time. This was made clear in March of 1976 when I was able to integrate the 4th Power; or better, to unveil it. Until then the work I had produced was certainly new, but it was not the full manifestation. This is illustrated by my published works – fortunately I have a record of the progress by the content of the publications, each one of which reveals where the Yoga stood at that point in time. The breakthrough in 1976 established the full operational extent of Supermind’s organisation for Earth use.
In 1976 I had no clear idea of what that unveiling meant because I was only focussed on the Mother’s chamber; everything was centred on that, and that alone – and rightfully because whatever discoveries I might make could be found or verified in the chamber’s plan and measurements. By early 1976 I had written and published The Gnostic Circle after dividing the book into four sections – 9, 6 3, 0. The telling part was the 0. There was no 1, which would have meant the integration of the fourth (9/6/3/0-1). That had not happened in 1974-5, and this was disclosed in the 0 section by mention of the ‘cradle’: it was, as it were, empty. Only in March of 1976 would the cradle be filled with the One. Yet the third section does mention the Birth as well as the Child and connected to the Earth’s realisation; indeed, the cradle’s filling was through the Third . And even in the Puranas it is stated that the fourth planet Mars was formed from the sweat generated by the Earth during her tapasya. As for the Solar Line, the knowledge was always complete; it just had to unfold organically in Earth time. Therefore I refer to it as an unveiling rather than a discovery. This was all planned and documented carefully so that we could receive the help required, when required, and were able to move ahead consciously. For finally, that is the goal: to be conscious instruments by evolving in Earth time what is involved and compacted in the Seed.
I have stated many times that the Gnostic Circle is the alphabet with which we could construct the new language (of the New Way); or to formulate a new synthetic language based on the Sacred Formula as the vowels of the alphabet, it could be said. The New Way would never have been seen and formulated without the Gnostic Circle alphabet, much less without the integrating power of the Fourth Principle; the latter supramentalised the entire process by its fourfoldness. In The Gnostic Circle it is very clear: we move inward to the Point, the seed of compacted Transcendence. The entire key to supramentalisation lies in that compaction and the birth of the One who fills the Void, individually and collectively: the Circle is one for all.
At this stage it all becomes very interesting because we can fill in the blanks. The 11th August last, leading up to Sri Aurobindo’s 143rd birth anniversary, was truly an inspiring moment. I saw something and could formulate it more concretely because it was unfolding in Earth time: the real value of the Transcendent’s contribution, carrying me deeper into its mysteries; for none can dispute that in almost all theological schools the greatest mystery is the seeming paradox of Transcendence and Immanence, in a sense similar to the paradox of the wave and the point of quantum physics. In this excerpt Sri Aurobindo is expressing the role his Solar Line has played.
The time has come at last to unveil the mysteries, whether Vedic, Orphic, Alchemical or [Christian] and to recover the truth of the Spirit. The ascent of man into heaven is not the key but rather the descent of the Spirit into his normal humanity and the transformation of his earthly nature. For that and not some post mortem salvation is the real new birth for which humanity awaits. Sri Aurobindo
Of course the Transcendent Principle was not new to me, nor its number-power 9 as part of the descending formula. What happened was a deeper understanding of the nature of the 9’s factual contribution, and how immensely important it has been. Sri Aurobindo is the Avatar, as Sri Ram and Sri Krishna were, of Vishnu’s Line of Ten. The difference between his appearance and the 7th and 8th before him is that there was no question of Supermind then: it was Mind (7th) and Overmind (8th); thereafter, as he explained, the 9th following the 7th and 8th, is logically the Supramental Avatar.
Some believe he never stated he was an avatar. Well, if not him who then? Who else had even conceived of the supramental Truth-Consciousness? In his published Letters on Yoga, Section VII entitled ‘The Purpose of Avatarhood’, he explains not only avatarhood in general, but his own role, while clarifying many misgivings. And this draws me back to my seeing on August 11th. For the first time I really understood the imperative necessity of the Avatar heading the rest of his Line, and to bring about the conclusive victory all four stages have to have yogic representations with Earth time correspondences. Sri Aurobindo’s time correspondence was the Future (Transcendence); the Mother’s was the Past (Cosmic); the Third’s is the Present (Soul). The 6 and 3 are responsible for constructing the Bridge across the cosmic planes and to the Earth as a joint labour. However, they would have nothing with which to construct, but for what the 9 supplies. In other words, thefuture is the first imprinting; thereafter follow the stages that bring the New Heaven (the new future) to the Earth plane.
It is the new future Sri Aurobindo mapped out in all his works, the outcome of his colossal Yoga. The central focus was, as we know, to bring about the shift so that the ‘easy way out’ could be blocked; this finds leverage in a tendency in the human consciousness which had to be dealt with. When that work is done less effort is needed to resist the tendency because that ‘escape route’ would be sealed for good; the tendency would then clearly be seen as a relic of a former immature stage in evolution on the road to maturity. However, alone he could not complete the task, as he well understood.
Sri Aurobindo as the Transcendent (9) established a new future for us, as if it were a blueprint, on the basis of which we build that vision by and through the reversed direction. Thus, the Mother dealt with the cosmic planes by putting order therein, which centrally means that she got rid of accumulated debris floating about in those planes as carry-overs from the Past, each item still seeking fulfilment. This is the baggage we carry, slowing down our progress; it is described by one word: Inertia . It is what I call the cosmic waste bin, which translates into the clutter of the Known that drains the present of the energy needed to scale new heights; this drainage of energy does not permit the new blueprint to become established. In order for that to happen a passageway had to be created through those planes to create a channel, as it were, for the magnetic pull between Future and Present to be safely executed. This is the theme of Volume 3 of TNW, which is valid for the individual as well as for the entire species in evolution.
Consequently, the Mother stated that the Chamber of her vision in the Solar World was not for meditation but to learn concentration. In the actual human species power is never concentrated – rather, the atavistic drive is used to drain energy out of the system, thereby keeping the species imprisoned in the fortress of the Known to further Nature’s status quo.
In the Overmental creation you have the clutter of every possibility – the 8th Avatar’s term. The Mahabharata War gives a perfect example of the waste – so much destruction, unavoidable given the stage of evolution. At the end of the day we wonder if anything at all was gained. Was there truly a victor?
We have to ask ourselves the same question as we view the stockpiled weapons of mass destruction: they have indeed served as deterrent because those holding their finger on the trigger are rational beings who know that utilising those weapons would send us all down a slippery slope that no one can stop. But as things stand today, with these weapons in the hands of groups that value martyrdom and heaven as the be-all-end-all of life, for how long can common sense and reason prevail? Given the otherworldly goal of all religious and spiritual paths, we are engaged in the fulfilment of a collective death wish. One wonders if psychologists have taken into account the baggage we carry from the Piscean Age, in their deliberations on the imprints they uncovered in the collective subconscious.
This is where the Yoga of the Third enters. At that level the Void is closed, the hole is sealed for ever. Nothing of the sort would have been possible without the pioneering Yogas of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. He mapped out the new Future, all the details of which can be read in his major works. It stands as the blueprint, but only that; without that New Heaven (for this is what the prophecy means: the Transcendent Father facing the Earth, not looking the other way ), there would have been nothing for the Mother to work with. She had to draw that vastness through the planes cluttered with the debris of Overmind, the thousands of possibilities or potentials seeking expression in Matter – i.e. solidity and permanency: each one seeking to create a world in its image with permanency given to incomplete systems, contrary to the goal of Vishnu’s Emanations. Without the New Future Sri Aurobindo supplied, the Mother would have been doomed to labour within a closed circuit (the restricted circuitry of Nature, requiring millennia to reach a higher stage). This would be expressed in the Ouroborus symbol, the serpent biting its tail. It is valid to indicate the unity of 0 and 9 of the number scale where mouth and tail meet, and the circularity of the eternal rather than linearity. But it is closed and does not indicate the threefold gunas of the Shakti. It is a masculine symbol of the Mental Plane where the Feminine is absent. …‘All these [other paths of yoga] could not be taken as they were, for the integral yoga needs to develop its own forms and processes’ (Letters on Yoga, Section II, Integral Yoga and other Paths).
The greater possibility is indicated in the Rig Veda verses regarding that One Circle by mention of thethree hubs. This is perfectly expressed in the static form of the Mother’s symbol above: but those three hubs, when set in motion by the spiralling dynamism of the Becoming (Time as the executing force), are the means of escape from the closed circuit of the Past. For this the integration of the Feminine stands beyond question. The Mother’s Yoga helped us to travel lightly and actually allows for the present acceleration. Her dynamism drew the Transcendent from a static Peace into the dynamism of Itself and cleared the way through the debris of the Overmental planes for an open pathway down upon which the things of the New Heaven could reach the Earth when the Third completed her construction process by making Time an Ally and no longer the Destroyer. These are facts not fiction; this is the New Way, non-speculative, documented – and, above all, it is its own authority. It does not rely on any imprimatur from either pundits or priests of the old ways; or else from the new high priests of science and their incomplete paradigms.
The birth of the One is fundamental, not only to render the Yoga supramental but more especially for the victory he symbolises, that the debris of the cosmic planes has been successfully minimalised. Therefore in the new cosmology his contribution in the Gnostic Circle opposite the 0/9, is the 4.5 Orbit precisely where baggage is meant to be shed if the initiate can successfully scale the heights that lie ahead. Until the descent of the complete Solar Line, covering all the planes, that area, the pit of the circle, was the escape route because the old structure, individual and collective, could not withstand the pressure and contain the new energies of higher frequencies from the solar realm, hitherto closed to humanity – i.e. the hole in the old structure that had to be plugged, sealed up forever. Only then can the new creation establish firm roots here. Only then can the destiny of the Earth’s evolving species be realised in Time and thereby enjoy permanency. The danger lies in an imbalance – moving too fast or too slow. The Solar Line holds the safeguarding regulator of Time as ally.
The Fourth is known as the War God (Mars) in the myths, as the redeemer in other legends; but always it is this fourth. Simply put, he is the symbol of the victory of the two Goddesses, Demeter and Kore; he is their Triptolemos, the victor of ‘the three wars’. The shaft of wheat Demeter carries is the prophecy of the redemption of the Earth, of the abundance the Great Mother can bestow.
The birth of the Son, the Male Child of many traditions, has survived across the ages in the deepest recesses of the soul. In Ancient Greece it was re-energised time and again in all who participated in the annual Eleusinian Mystery rites. That grand celebration of the Fourth, open to all, was brought to an end in the 4th century by the Church Fathers, the objective of which was to eliminate a sacred rite centred on the Goddesses, only to carry it over to the birth of the Son Jesus – alas, crucified, unlike the victorious Triptolemos; with the Goddesses eliminated, crucifixion was the unavoidable finale.
There is a charming story from the Puranas regarding the two sons of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesh and Kartikeya. It calls up the image of the Fourth moving victoriously through the cosmos amidst the clutter that exists. Kartikeya is the 4th Principle, the Son victorious; his vahana (mount) is the Peacock, India’s national bird, precisely the symbol of victory. The story goes that there was a competition between the two sons: who could traverse the universe the fastest. Kartikeya set out on his vahana, sure of success, but when he had completed the round and returned to his divine Parent’s abode, he found Ganesh there already! The clever Ganesh had simply gone around his Parents seated in their thrones, reasoning that because they embody all that is he had actually covered the whole universe. Kartikeya was so incensed by this ‘trickery’ that he left their northern abode and went to the hills in the South – where indeed he is the favoured deity.
A curious contemporary detail to add is that the Peacock was declared the national bird in 1963 – unknowingly celebrating Sri Aurobindo’s own victory in that year as the Fourth, Kartikeya’s own principle in the descending formula. We have then two pertinent dates in the nation’s calendar that indirectly celebrate the 9th Avatar’s mission: Independence Day, 15th August (his birthday); the declaration of the Peacock as national bird in the very year that he did complete his mission involving the fourth victorious War God, Mars. But more astonishingly in what concerns his return as that Son of the formula is the date of the nation’s constitution: it is the very day of the 365 of our Earth year of that return. To add another detail, which encourages us to take a fresh look at the Puranas as repositories of more than just myths but are actually accurate prophecies of things to come, in the Shiva Purana section on the birth of Skanda-Kartikeya there are even certain prominent details of the horoscope of that birth centuries into the future.
This is how myths are born and how they record recurrent history read in the cosmic harmonies, regardless of the views of our contemporary historians. They are etched in the soul of each individual and in the collective soul. Naturally it would be difficult, if not impossible, for historians to understand how this display of harmony cutting across time and space is achieved; and failing to understand, academia dismisses it all as ‘coincidence’. In my world of Seeing this is a clear example of the action of the Supramental Shakti and her command over Simultaneous Time in a present that always IS.
To save our planet the contribution of the Goddesses is essential. While we cling to the old world and its imprisoning patriarchies, we simply continue to orbit that closed circuit of the past with no opening to the new future. Nothing can arrest the descent of the New Heaven, but the resistance of the old can result in a massive destruction – which, however, is entirely avoidable. The 4.5 Orbit is intrinsically connected to nuclear energy, to date the most destructive weaponry known to humankind. The Mother gave a warning and a hope:
The future of the Earth depends on a change of consciousness. The only hope for the future is in a change of man’s consciousness and the change is bound to come. But it is left to men to decide if they will collaborate for this change or if it will have to be enforced upon them by the power of crashing circumstances. So, wake up and collaborate!
The Mother, August 1964
Sri Aurobindo’s mission was incomplete without his return as the Immanence of his former Transcendence. As the Fourth Power he became the magnetic point drawing the things of the present forward irresistibly, compellingly. Clinging to the old, with its escapisms, compels the newly-energised magnetism to draw the Earth as if into a black hole by the massive baggage brought down the pathway through the cosmic planes, adding to the gravitational contraction and forcing collapse. This involves the energy the Russian physicist Kosyrev found to be locked in Time, the most powerful of all energy sources, he claimed. In the New Way cosmology once the Void is filled and no energy is drained from the system, centering and the new alignment allow for a single-bodied pathway to the Future that exists. It is that existing Future (the blueprint, somewhat on the order of a morphogenetic field as postulated by Rupert Sheldrake) that draws the Present to itself. This is the basis of all creation in matter: the magnetic point (the centre of the Centre itself) is compelled to reach that future regardless of what might stand in its way, similar to the action of two powerful magnets irresistibly drawn to each other. They will join and whatever lies between will be crushed, just as the Mother stated. The Future mapped out by the Avatar exists within the mysteries of simultaneous time, and that is the power compelling us to be the instruments for its manifestation on this material plane.
We are at one of these ‘Hours of God’, when the old bases get shaken, and there is great confusion; but it is a wonderful opportunity for those who want to leap forward, the possibility of progress is exceptional.
Will you be one of those who take advantage of it?
The Mother (ibid)
We start with the fact that very little is known of the true structure of human consciousness – or of consciousness itself. Most scientists still refuse to accept that such a thing exists. That structure houses four broad planes of consciousness: physical, vital, mental, and finally the fourth and most rarified, which, after completion of the combined yogas of the Solar Line, is known as Supramental rather than Spiritual. This quarter of the circle below is, in fact, where the full impact of the transformation is felt in our 9th Manifestation (see Keys of Knowledge, The 12 Manifestations).
As of 234 BCE, we are passing through that final section hitherto considered beyond the material world and accessible only through death – i.e., once the physical had been shed and fed to the Eagle.
The Solar Line’s primary objective has been to open the last quarter to the evolving species that until now has been limping along on three legs rather than four – that is, only now do we have all four integrated to constitute wholeness and the stability of complete processes. Only then can Time cease to be the mystery that harvests food for the Eagle; rather, it is Time itself that experiences a higher function, a reversal to be the ally of the species.
Wholeness, integration of the sort described above creates numerous difficulties because of its newness. For example, our Map of the 12 Manifestations is an updating of the Hindu formula of four major Yugas or Ages – Satya, Treta, Dwapara, and finally our own, Kali Yuga or the Dark Age. The Kali Yuga is stated to have begun in 3102 BCE at the demise of the 8th Avatar in the 8th Manifestation prior to ours and to last for a blessed 432,000 years thereafter (the traditional time measure given for Kali Yuga). In other words, we have approximately 427,663 years ahead of us of the deep ignorance for which Kaliyuga is known.
This conceptualisation was a product of the Dark Age during passage through Pisces in the precession of the equinoxes, from which we are now emerging. I have treated the subject in The Gnostic Circle, Chapter 6, ‘The Indian Yugas’; it need not detain us here. My point is only to use this as an example of the enormous shift the lived experience of wholeness can signify for both individuals and the civilisations we create. In the light of completion when the full circle stands open to our lived experience, the old formulas become obsolete. Moreover, the real danger lies in seeking solutions in paradigms of the past based on conceptualisations that were accommodations required by a three-legged lameness; indeed, often the four yugas are described as four legs of the Cow. When a new light dawns, only that can dispel the darkness and carry us to embrace wholeness: The sacred Cow today stands firmly on four legs.
The critical problem Hindus face with regard to the Yugas is the weight of the Known; anything that presents a challenge to that fortress is either distorted or dismissed a priori for lack of an ‘authoritative’ support in the Scriptures – somewhat incongruous because being new where can we look for that authority? It must necessarily be above all other systems, and therefore obliged to be its own authority. This describes the current impasse: the old paradigms and beliefs can no longer be accommodated, try as we might, but we cannot seem to let them go.
Given this state of affairs, it is evident that only pioneering spirits can face the challenges before us; those with ‘the soul of a hero’, as the Mother stated in 1972. The situation is especially problematic in traditional societies like the Indian; or in facing the new orthodoxies of contemporary science.
1. The 0/4th section: The Centre, the womb, the cradle, the upholder.
2. The 3rd section: The Individual, the Child, the birth, the Earth’s realisation.
3. There are Akashic Records that can be ‘read’, as the psychic Edgar Cayce had done. This would be the debris. Those unfulfilled fragments he and other psychics ‘saw’ can be valid in the Old Creation, before the Mother’s act of ordering and clearing the cosmic planes of floating elements (of the past). The cosmic womb contains that past. This is where prophets of the old creation pluck their visions; and this is why when Supermind manifests they may no longer be reliable. In the old creation any one of those fragments could materialise – or none; it all depends on the availability of receptive vessels on Earth. The precision of the New Way was lacking. In fact, it was never demanded of a spirituality that had no use for the things of this world.
