about

We are happy to reissue Sir George Trevelyans classic New Age trilogy; A Vision of the Aquarian Age, Operation Redemption, and Exploration into God. After George transitioned in 1996, the British newspaper, The Times obituary read, AN ELDER statesman of the New Age movement, Sir George Trevelyan saw the mission of his later years as an 'exploration into God'. From the moment when in 1942 he first tagged along to a lecture given by one of Rudolph Steiner's students "I have no doubt", he later said, "that this event in my life was staged by higher destiny, and that the time was ripe for a leap in consciousness" he began to work towards the promotion of an alternative spirituality.These books are required reading for anyone looking for spiritual enlightenment, and we leave you with Georges original introduction here.THIS BOOK, the third of a trilogy, follows A Vision of the Aquarian Age and Operation Redemption. As I worked on it, I suddenly knew that its title must be "Exploration into God". What presumption I thought! Who am I, who have no qualifications whatever as a theologian, to use such a title? Yet I knew it was right and fitting. The phrase comes from a passage in Christopher Frys play "A Sleep of Prisoners". Prisoners of war, locked in an empty church at night (itself a powerful symbol) talk and banter, joke and smoke, but one after another they are taken over and speak from higher inspiration out of the spiritual world. Finally Meadows, the Sergeant, touched with the higher consciousness, says this:The human heart can go the lengths of God.Dark and cold we may be, but thisIs no winter now. The frozen miseryof centuries breaks, cracks, begins to move;The thunder is the thunder of the floes,The thaw, the flood, the upstart Spring.Thank God our Time is now when wrongComes up to face us everywhere,Never leave us till we takeThe longest stride of soul men ever took.Affairs are now soul size.The enterpriseIs exploration into God.Where are you making for? It takesSo many thousand years to wakeBut will you wake for pitys sake?I have quoted this frequently in lectures, since it gives a powerful expression of the age we live in and the hope of a change in consciousness which will usher in a New Age.While Principal of Attingham Park, I invited a distinguished theologian and Shakespearean scholar to conduct a weekend course on the work of Christopher Fry. I spoke of my admiration of the above passage and to my great surprise he responded:Oh, Christopher went badly wrong there! There can be no question of our exploring into God. All we can do is to pray and wait for Gods grace to be granted to us.And then I saw that the emergence of the spiritual and holistic world view in our time was calling and challenging us to go beyond academic or traditional viewpoints and really take our own initiative in exploring into the field of God-thought. So I offer it, with due humility, as truth.
