The Gnostic Circle by Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet

A Synthesis in the Harmonies of the Cosmos


The Gnostic Circle cover
Summary: The Gnostic Circle introduces a unique and profound understanding of astrology, the zodiac and the enneagram. These ancient systems of knowledge, commonly studied as if they had nothing to do with one another, are here presented as an integral whole, contained within one circle. The main drive of the book is to reinstate lost Knowledge and Truth-Consciousness of the eternal alchemical journey by which the secrets of the universe are revealed to the traveler of the path. The reader is presented with a means by which to center him or herself in Time within the circumstances of both Individual and Collective evolution, and thereby develop an integral rather than fragmented vision of the whole. The author discusses and demonstrates a relationship between the study of cosmology ('Cosmic Harmonies') and the Supramental and Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.

Author's Comments: 'The Gnostic Circle is the most effective method for understanding the transformation of human consciousness. It represents a vision of wholeness and has only one objective: it deals with the soul or seed of the Divine in each created thing and reveals the process by which that seed is made to flower in its process of becoming.' Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet

Trinity transcendent cosmic individualChapter 1: Essential Purpose of the Study of Cosmic Harmonies: 'It is rare to find schools today which are capable of perceiving the true will of the Transcendent in the workings of the Cosmos. They separate the basic trinity of Transcendent, Cosmic and Individual Divine, and anything below the Transcendent is for most spiritualists a part of the Ignorance and the Illusion; the Cosmic Truth is far from being apparent to the uninitiated eye as yet. But the evolution moves toward this very achievement and in the teachings of Sri Aurobindo the first attempt has been made to reawaken man to the unity of the essential Trinity . . . .' p. 5

'It can be understood that the more we progress toward a Truth-Consciousness, toward an existence which feeds on Truth, on Life, and not on Ignorance and Death, the greater will our possibilities be to understand the universal harmonies and then to directly translate them into the forms of material creation, thereby substituting ignorance with truth.' p. 7-8

'By knowing the date of the beginning of the Age or the '0' Point of [the Precession of the Equinoxes], we can insert ourselves into the Wheel with great precision . . . .' p. 20

'By penetrating into the present, by knowing our precise position on the scale, we know at once what lives in us of the past, what is essentially important to know, and then we can discard the useless and cumbersome knowledge, extract the truth from the former efforts, thus allowing this truth to be the essence of the future.' p. 24
