Book Highlight: Isis of Fellowship

"Isis of Fellowship, How the Fellowship of Isis was Founded" was written by Olivia Robertson in 2002. From the Foreword:

"In my 85th year, I feel the time has come for me honestly to describe how my brother, his wife and myself founded the Fellowship of Isis. This is a question I am so often asked and as often brush the query aside with a recommendation to read our Manifesto, study the Liturgy or join a centre! What I have avoided as a matter of principle is to be personal. I had encapsuled my personal experiences within a framework of ideas in my book 'The Call of Isis'. I refused to write an autobiography. I wished to give the rest of my life to promoting the Fellowship: not on encouraging a cult of personality, bugbear of our media-crazed society."
This book relates how each aspect of the Fellowship of Isis came into being as Olivia Robertson personally experienced it. An original Oracle and illustration begins each of the nine chapters, which include: 1) Foundation: The Throne of Isis, 2) Return of the Priestess, 3) The College of Isis Revived, 4) Spirals of Light, 5) Dana's Land of Immortality, 6) Ladies and Knights of the Green Earth, 7) The Goddess Has New Helpers, 8) Isis Prophetis, and 9) The Muses Symposium.
This book is available for purchase worldwide:  FOI Online Bookstore

Audio transcript:
"The air and water of Aquarius symbolize spirit in union with emotions.  You rise above the situation in Aquarius - you have some terrible row or some problem at your work, or you've been having rows with people - the Aquarian method is to rise above it and look down and it becomes in proportion.  You don't ignore it.  Have you any problem, don't hide it away and then it pops out at you later when you sleep in a nightmare.  Face it now and rise above it - look down on it from this starry standpoint.  All problems vanish when you are your true Self, for we are only players in this shadow world.  Now, at the birth of a new aeon, we look ahead, now we've solved our problems, to what we plan for our own future, not only now but in future lives, whether on earth or in the stars. . . There is no jealousy, envy or hatred in the new aeon, for we share others' triumphs and glories.  There's no competition.  As we feel this, we feel the waters of Aquarius and the stars pour through us. . . Happiness is not yesterday or tomorrow, it is NOW and that now extends like ripples right through the whole of one's being.  Sorrow passes, joy lasts forever.  You are receiving inspiration from the stars. . . and you can see the star Cassiopeia, the great "W" in the sky, the northern constellation and you know that beneath, below the south pole, is Aquarius.  And the stars are always there.  There is no loss.  We are shrouded with a starry mantle.  When the sun goes down the stars are seen: so in Winter, when our earthly vitality perhaps decreases, our inner spirit shines forth. . ."
