Contraction, the Zero and the Speed of Consciousness


From the December Solstice to approximately January 5th –  or 0  to 15th degree Capricorn – Thea introspects. She reviews the year that has passed and prepares for the one that opens after these days ‘out of the calendar’ have passed – the five days over the 360 of the complete zodiacal/calendrical circle, days which the Ancients always considered especially important as a ‘seeding’ period. In the New Way this period completes a cosmological process that  embraces the last three months of the closing year, leading to this Seeding (of Time). One truly plants a ‘seed’ in Time, the power that from the December Solstice onward can carry it to fruition over the months that follow.
This year the Seeding was undertaken by a reading of certain important journal entries, those that marked especially significant turning points in her cosmological work of the past year. One was the revolutionising vision of the nature of Contraction – in our material world this is experienced as gravity. With that yogic breakthrough, the formulation of the new cosmology was completed by this cosmological constant which is the basis of a new paradigm.
As a tribute to the 2012 that we leave behind, with its share of near apocalyptic episodes such as Hurricane Sandy as well as the turmoil across the world in so many walks of life that affect the common people, we see just how the Aquarian Wave is transforming life on this planet. The entire world is marching toward a great Unknown, understandably with a certain amount of trepidation. It is therefore timely to present a series of excerpts from Thea’s journal where she records her yogic experiences to demonstrate that while the world seems poised for catastrophe or collapse of some sort, be this in the political, economic, or social sphere, there is another work going on which indicates that the new world Sri Aurobindo announced is in preparation. The new paradigm beyond science and spirituality – both examples of the old creation that is being surpassed – is solidly taking shape and will soon displace the old models on which a world in collapse had been built.
The New Way promises a future that would seem unrelated to what the human being has known until now. Everything we know and have cherished is being carried away on the Aquarian Wave, while at the same time the new is introduced. There is never a void: one leaves as the other fills the space – but this time with foundations that can support a true new world order of justice, of benevolence, of compassion and of love.  (5 January 2013)


Thea’s Journal
6.4.2012

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 has been my mistake, and it is a serious one. Contraction is on the other side; and it is constant. It is that cosmological constant Einstein finally disowned. He had the right perception but since 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 even 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 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 each created thing. These principles through the 0/1 are at the root of our universal manifestation – 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 is true. But now, 36 years after the most important breakthrough of the Avataric 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 here also. It is not that it ceases at the threshold and expansion takes over. Indian 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 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 that Is-ness. It is therefore impoverished, incomplete, diminished – unembellished.
Like the raga that compacted Silence 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 the falsehood supreme. Only Fullness describes the true reality of our world.
This is a glorious day. The Christians celebrate it as the death of the Son Crucified. They have 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 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.
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 take the plunge and discover the essential and complete nature of Reality. But he was trapped by the limitations of his dis-cipline, 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 [of the Mother’s original design] – the point of the Return, of the reversal from the vertical of the descending Ray to the horizontal base of the Mother’s symbol. Truly the inner chamber holds all the secrets of the future realisation. And the 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 it lies the key to salvation.

Already I am feeling a sort of shift after this morning’s seeing. Somehow this little piece of the puzzle or mosaic had been withheld. I am not foolish enough to believe that all this, especially this breakthrough, depends on me. It is the Divine Grace – indeed Jupiter in this Jupiter year [2012=5=Jupiter’s orbit] we have entered. Its presence has kicked in after the Equinox. Now 36 years after that wonderful birth of the New Way, the final piece has been set in place...
...It is so clear: Einstein’s cosmological constant. So clear. Of course he saw it as a blunder because he could not use the speed of consciousness to cross the threshold via contraction. That’s the key: contraction to a point where maximum speed in this material universe is reached.
The speed of light as constant condemned us to this material universe and kept us from the experience of Oneness. Light is part of this universe of 9, so light speed as constant meant that we always had to function in the One disconnected from the Zero. When the speed of consciousness replaces light as constant, only then can that threshold be breached because we are not confined to expansion, extension of the One. We do penetrate that Zero, just as The Magical Carousel (Chapter 9) describes so beautifully. We have to penetrate the Point right within ourselves. That is the only way. We cannot extend our vision into the past as astronomers and physicists do. In the Point we have Simultaneous Time – time in the seed of itself. Our grace is to be able to experience that essence as it evolves in this material creation of 9 and thereby know the Transcendent, Cosmic and Individual Divine as within our very being, not out and beyond.
What a falsehood spirituality of the Age of Pisces has been. Only Supermind can describe the true Reality....
