As Above, So Below.
We’ve heard that and read that as a core statement in all metaphysical and esoteric discussion just about forever! But the permeation of quantum Physics into these New Age/Aquarian Age transition times brings the other half of that equation of Hermetic wisdom to the forefront: As Below, So Above.
As Below, So Above
defines the challenges of the New Age. Instead of being passive inhabitants of our planet causing harm to her body through our ignorant abuse, now we are called upon to assume an active and self-responsible role in managing our own destiny and rectifying some of the harm done. If we don’t, disaster for humanity hovers on the horizon.
From Gemini To Aquarius.
(Note: all dating is approximate, and controversial. There is a period of tran-sition of about 200 years on each side of the given dates) The Age of Gemini was approx. 6550 to 4400 BC; Gemini is an Air Sign, and marked the beginning of symbolic communication and the development of myths. It was the beginning of spoken history, the sharing of information and philosophic speculation with others. From approx. 4400 to 2250 BC was the Age of Taurus (an Earth Sign symbolized by a Bull), which marked the development of written history, of agriculture and livestock, the mining and refining of metals, and the ending of nomadic culture. We settled into villages and walled towns. From approx. 2250 to 100 BC was the Age of Aries (a Fire Sign symbolized by the Ram), which was marked by wars of conquest and acts of violence (rams butt heads). Villages and towns became cities within empires, and empires expand their territory through conquest requiring standing armies led by soldier kings. Following Aries to approx. 1950 AD was the Age of Pisces (an emotion-ruled Water Sign symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions—and hence getting nowhere), which was marked by big religion and bigger wars, by fear and religious persecution. It was the age of exploration by sea and the discovery of the subconscious mind. We are now seeing the progressive transition (lasting two to four hundred years) into the
Age of Aquarius
(a mind-ruled Air Sign symbolized by an androgynous–appearing human person or couple) spreading information and intelligence across the earth. While it is far too early in the transition phase to foresee with exactitude, it should be an age of gender equality, of mind-based spirituality rather than emotion-laden religion, and a move from competing geographic empires to a true global culture. The focus is now centered on the evolution of the person and not on organizations promulgating an imposed impersonal theology. Spirit is everywhere and in everyone. What’s this got to with Quantum Physics? In the last few hundred years we’ve learned of the importance and power of intention focused on small units to bring directed change to bigger units. With personal empowerment focused from the bottom up to accomplish rationally determined objectives, power is truly people-centered. But, with power comes responsibility.
Self-Responsibility, Self-Authority, and Self-Judgment.
No, it can’t happen overnight, or even next century, but the movement from massive organizations toward smaller groups and then down to the level of solitary practitioners is happening now as individuals awaken into greater self-awareness and higher consciousness. What this means for you is self-responsibility! All the knowledge and information you need is available to you in books, online, and in classes. But, not only must you seek out that information and knowledge, but you must learn to qualify and judge its importance and direct value to you and to the immediate and global community. Yes, we want you to buy books, because that is our service to the Aquarian/New Age influx of higher consciousness. It’s for you to choose the books you need, and each one is a stepping stone towards your empowerment and service. You have the Power! Use it rightly.
