We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.
Issue Number 68, Spring 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)
UMBILICUS – OVER 64 YEARS OLD PAGE 42, TEXT 2
TO BE APART OR A PART
“It is interesting to notice that on page 42 Text 2, Mary teaches us that the area of disharmony is related to the reproductive organ (Safety Energy Lock 15 – which we will talk about below) and coccyx (Safety Energy Lock 25). Twenty-five is “Be Still and Know”. Twenty-five brings physical agility and enables us to go inside, enjoy the Silence and just Know. Now we have the picture of a wise old man and woman who have seen, listened and lived a lot and are able to contemplate life with inner peace, serenity and detachment. S/He knows how to listen patiently and give helpful advice when asked.
That is why this can be the time of our lives when we are in the climax of our potentialities, when we are recognized and respected for our qualities, capacity and excellence achieved by years of dedicated practice of our talents (Capricorn qualities). Old age can and should be light, happy and productive. The ability to find something new in the old and familiar is a wonderful way to preserve youthfulness in old age. To realize the wonder in the simple and miraculous process of Life and Nature which has always been here but now can be enjoyed with gratitude for the lucky chance.
These can be the crowning years in terms of maturity, another Saturn subject, when we have discernment about the mysterious passage of time in our lives, knowing how to adjust and use its resulting cycles, changes and transformations in our favor. Being mature is also being able to accept and deal with frustrations and limitations. Yet, we often see elderly people behaving like stubborn and naughty children.
Some authors say that after 64 we can be beyond ordinary time and space because we have crossed the gateway to a higher state of consciousness.
The sign opposite to Capricorn is Cancer, and it is very common to observe its influence during this time of life expressed as nostalgia, attachment, bitterness, stinginess, difficulty leaving home, etc.
We may still have too many questions in our minds in this period of our lives like: Have I fulfilled my destiny? Or have I resisted it? Have I realized my potential? Was I in the driver’s seat of my life, or have I let myself be driven “with no choices”, living the lives of others and not my own? Am I looking for culprits and victims, or am I bringing about what is possible now? Did I take risks? What is essential now? What is permanent, everlasting? To what have I been of service in my life?
