Birth of the next cycle of European civilization

Her flight path The Hindu July 21, 2011 ARTS » DANCE  Well-known dancer Anita Ratnam shares the trajectory of her journey through Bharatanatyam.
I carry with me now the monograph of Sri Aurobindo's “The Mother” which I read many years ago. His description of Mahashakti Mahakali Mahasaraswati is a seminal description of the ideal woman. So as I said, little windows and doors were beginning to open. I started to focus on women in myth and legends, but I couldn't just do them the way I was taught.
I had to re-imagine them and I realised that my strength would be new ways of speaking the old, but in a very convincing way — not just changing costume and doing the same choreography, or keeping the old costume of classical dance and just doing new choreography.
Born as Margaret Noble, Nivedita, who was also close to Rabindranath Tagore and Jagadish Chandra Bose and Sri Aurobindo, came to Kolkata in 1898 on a request from Swami Vivekananda to spread education among Indian women. She set up a school in 1899 ...

But here we come back to the very beginning of this introduction; the question then is, whether a European Union is just a temporary formation on the way to a spiritual mankind and can thus be – on the long rung – neglected as a collective body or if there is some kind of eternal truth in the European-unit, some kind of a true individual, that does not depend on present forms or ideas, if there is not only a vital soul, a life-soul and a communal mind, but as well the genuine spark of the divine developing into a European psychic being.
Do we have to deal, in the end, in a spiritual age, with the true individual, the true nation and a true humanity or with the true individual, the true nation, the true Europe/Asia/America/Africa/Australia, and the true humanity? – Is continental grouping thus truly genuine or a temporary phenomenon? 
So much as food for reflection for a hopefully inspiring and integrating experience.

Re: Union with our Inner Being MICHAEL MIOVIC mmiovic@..
For those who are open, Greece is still a treasure trove of mystical experience, and one can still experience the so-called "ancient" Gods in their inner or yogic reality in many spots--Delphi, Cape Sounion, at the Parthenon,Olympia, some islands, and many other spots both natural and man-made.  The re-discovery of these Gods and Goddesses still awaits the birth of the next cycle of European civilization.
