About the New Way

‘ . . . in the lap of the Mother the soul sees.’ – Rig Veda (1)

The Integral and Supramental yoga of Sri Aurobindo (1872 – 1950) and the Mother of Pondicherry (1878 – 1973) initiated a ‘reversal of direction’, a new direction, in the course of consciousness and evolution on Earth. In the early 1970’s Patrizia Norelli-Bachelets yoga began to reveal ‘the formulas by which we can see the operations of Supermind in all the affairs of the world, both in the macrocosm and the microcosm.’ (1)

The New Way refers not only to the new knowledge and consciousness that has been recently established (or revealed) on Earth via the vision and teachings of Sri Aurobindo, the Mother and Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet, but also literally to the new path that their knowledge opens up for those whose will it is to journey beyond the old limits of the mental consciousness.

One of the functions of this blog is to share what has already been done in terms of establishing the Integral and Supramental Gnosis from which a new world order can naturally evolve. Articles posted to this blog will also discuss how the keys of new knowledge (already given yet hardly noticed) foster a unified vision and understanding of the movements of our lives – as individuals and as a collective. It is very common these days to talk of Integrality and Evolutionary Spirituality, but in most cases the material realities of the Earth and the Cosmos are either negated or only very partially considered. The Integral yoga and Supramental cosmology discussed here, is thoroughly Earth-based and Earth-positive . . . Earth-positive in the highest sense, i.e. taking into full consideration the living soul of the Earth and all her creatures, and bringing consciousness to the real evolutionary process by which that soul or divine spark manifests in material creation to greater and greater degrees of perfection in due course of Time.

(1) “. . . the old Vedic poets . . . spoke of the spiritual life as a constant ascent . . . ‘The priests of the world climb thee like a ladder, O hundred powered. As one ascends from peak to peak, there is made clear the much that has still to be done.’ But once the foundation has been secured, the rest develops by a progressive self-unfolding and the soul is sure of its way. As again it is phrased by the ancient Vedic singers . . . ‘State is born upon state, covering after covering becomes conscious of knowledge; in the lap of the Mother the soul sees” – Rig Veda, Sri Aurobindo, The Human Cycle, p. 299.
