Garden Gnomes at work and play, Intro page 4During the latter half of the garden gnomes cycle, humanity, having come to an understanding of the natural principles of growth, conquers Nature by obeying her fundamental laws, and thereby wins the willing obedience of the lower orders of nature-spirits and the joyous co-operation of the higher ranks of invisible workers. Though the skeptical mind of the age may question the validity of such evidence, the open mind will pursue this fascinating quest, full of such promise for the world's welfare. The occultist sees no "dead matter" anywhere every stone thrills with life, every jewel has its attendant consciousness, however minute. The grass and trees are pulsing to the touch of tiny garden gnomes, whose magnetic bodies act as the matrix in which miracles of growth and color become possible. As the following observations and remarks by Mr. Hodson bear directly on this point, they are inserted here rather than in the body of the book. In the examination of bulbs growing in bowls, it is observed that large numbers of small sub-microscopic enteric garden gnomes are moving about in and around the growing plants. They are visible esthetically as points of light, playing around the stems and passing in and out of the growing plant. They have the power to rise into the air to a height equal to that of the plant, but I have not seen any rise further than that. They absorb something from the atmosphere, re-enter the tissue of the plant and discharge it. This process is going on continually, the creatures are entirely self-absorbed, sufficiently self-conscious to experience a dim sense of well-being and to feel affection for the plant. which they regard as their body. They have no consciousness apart from this. When the process of absorbing is taking place garden gnomes become enlarged and appear like pale violet or lilac-colored spheres, some two inches in diameter, with radii of force flowing from a central point within the sphere. The ends of these lines extend slightly beyond the circumference. Having expanded to the largest size which they are able to reach, they return close to the plant, enter it, and begin to discharge the material, or vital force, which they have absorbed. The natural enteric vital flow from the half-grown plants reaches quite two feet above them, and in it other tiny creatures play and dance, tossed up and down by the flowing force in which they rejoice. To enteric sight they are less than a quarter of an inch in size, though both varieties of garden gnomes must be sub-microscopic from the point of view of solid measurement. In addition to this a process of absorption by the plants themselves is plainly visible, enteric matter Bowing towards them from all sides.
