We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.
Issue Number 67, Winter 2010 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.
Today we will continue with that series:
Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)
DIAPHRAGM – 57-64 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2
Freedom to BE
“Now I am free to be who I am because in general by that time I am free of family and work with heavy duties. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone because I have already proved myself. I perceive the difficult moments of life, past or present, with a sense of humor, not taking life so seriously, neither so personally. If I am in harmony, by this time I will be more prone to be an Impersonal Self, knowing how to laugh at myself and life circumstances. I am more adaptable and tolerant with others and my own mistakes and peculiarities.
Of course, there will be people in this stage of life that will find tragedy and “unacceptable” situations in every corner of their existence and this is also part of Sagittarius experience in disharmony, amplifying and exaggerating. I have already had the experience of diving into my inner world, into my deep water of emotions with Kidney Function Energy, a Scorpio Deep Flow. Many times this journey brings ghosts and crisis to the surface and I had to look at wounds, defeats and seeds that were not planted yet.
Now, with Diaphragm, Sagittarius brings another kind of movement, the movement of expansion. Instead of going deep, I want to go beyond, I aspire to the heights. This is a more “religious” moment of my life. Understanding the root of the word as “religare”, re-connect, being a 6th Depth Flow we are neared the Source, to 7th and 8th Depth. The connection with the Source is more available now than before. This is a time of Faith and Trust, focusing on the best of life. Spirituality is very present now. Another way to show this quality of expansion is through traveling to know other cultures, others’ ways of living, other nature expressions. Sometimes during this time of life people start being interested in philosophy, cultures and religion.
Of course, now I feel closer to death than when I was in my twenties. Some people now will lose enthusiasm and hope, but others will experience confidence in the life process, being receptive and opened because I believe the best will happen. It is interesting to observe that more than 60% of the masterworks were carried out by people after their sixties. To create something amazing is more likely to happen when we add experience, wisdom and confidence, gained through the years of life, with inspiration and talent.
In general, I am less agile physically but much more agile in terms of my awareness. Children are full of physical vitality and agility but they miss awareness. When I am 57 to 64 it is exactly the contrary.
This is the time of another Saturn Return. When Saturn in the heavens returns to the zodiacal degree where he was placed in our birth chart, we experience our Saturn Return. It only happens once every 29 years, so at around age 28-30, 57-59 we have what astrologers call a Saturn Return. It is interesting to notice that in the relationship with page 42 and 43 Text 2, the first Saturn Return happens at Heart “time” and now at another Chest Flow “time”. If we met the challenges of the first Saturn Return, the second one may not be so stressful, bringing fulfillment and abundance. In general this is the time to slow down in terms of quantity, bringing an improvement and refinement in terms of quality. It asks us to be more responsible not only for ourselves but the whole.”
