“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:”
Cycles appear to be embedded in nature. The writer of that passage from Ecclesiastes was probably inspired by this observation.
From our observation of the cyclical nature of events, it has become logical to postulate the question: Do “good” and “bad” things also happen in cycles? If so, can we capture such a cycle in a system that will enable us to identify certain periods or time of the day when things might be more opportune for us than at other periods?
I have what is probably by now a rare book entitled “Self Mastery and Fate with the Cycles of Life” authored by H. Spencer Lewis, founder and former Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order (AMORC). The book purports to give precisely such a system.
I would like to share with you what I think to be an important part of the system given in the book. The author claims that we can divide a day into seven periods, labeled from “A” to “G”, during which certain things can better be done or started.
Here are the time periods according to the day as identified by Dr. H. Spencer Lewis:
