Spring beckons. The equinox has passed, but where is spring I ask ? I sit here in my part of the UK. It is 32 degrees F (zero degrees C). This time last year I was basking in 68-70 degrees, with sunshine !
I am now thinking about the future. Is global warming to blame for this weather, and what is in store ? Is it man made ? Are we to blame ? I think of the tarot card – the wheel of fortune, and the medicine wheel of the shaman. Both use the wheel, giving the idea of rotation and cyclicity. Is this weather and the global warming simply part of a cycle ? Just because we have never seen it before doesn’t mean it isn’t cyclic – It may just be part of a long cycle.
The idea of cycles is well documented in occult literature. Enochian Physics relies on the great breath (see earlier editions of the Black Serpent) as a foundation of its basis, but again we see that breathing is a cycle. It is sadly only science, where unless there is documented evidence of previous happenings of cyclic activity, science will refute it. There is plenty of evidence to support ideas of cyclic mass extinctions, ice ages, but science refutes much of this since a driving force cannot be found.
So, the question is, do we believe science or the idea of cycles as indicated by occult literature and past civilisations ?
