THE SEVEN FACES OF TIME
It's playful, original and moralizing feel-good fun for all the family. Directed by cinema's pre-eminently fantasist George Pal. This time, he bases his film on a famous novel and it's a successful adventure with unlimited imagination. Tony Randall puts on quite a show as the multi-faced illusionist, Dr.
He arrives with his circus in a near-dead little town. A greedy magnate wishes to buy the entire town and makes the inhabitants believe their properties are worthless. With a little help from a news reporter, Dr. Lao faces the townies with some of the smaller joys of life and their own consciousness. Both fortune-telling sequences are fascinating and remarkably written and - in order to be complete - the story foresees a touching romance.
The creature effects and make-up are terrifically kitschy and rather charming. Recommended for sure! Seven Faces of Dr. Lao is some of the most pleasant fantasy adventures of the sixties and it has the right to a larger fanbase!

You're impotent. You're useless. You're valueless. You've nothing to offer. You'll never amount to anything. You decide that at this time. And you pull your Power -- the river, the flow, the Power whose element is water -- down deep inside of you. And your personality now becomes persona. It has been raped, it has been ravaged. And it has been tossed aside in the heap, pulled inside of you to be replaced with the persona: OK, I'll give you what you want.
Your sense of invincibility, your sense of adventure, your sense of excitement, your sense of wonder, your sense of awe has been totally sucked inside. The fire of the Eternal Youth is sucked down. And you hate life, and you hate the world, and there's no way out, and it's only dark, and it's only ugly. And you never want to And then comes the face of the Shadow, which is the etheric -- the combination of earth and water and fire and air. And you go deep into the womb of your own being in the dark place where it's moist, where it's damp.
Some become brooding. Some become defensive. Some become arrogant with chips on their shoulders, bitter and angry.
All of you are hurt. Then comes the Shadow. The Shadow comes at the time of Wounding, and stays with you until your mids. So calculate the number of years. Of all of the Faces of the Soul, it is with you the longest. You are supposed to go into the Shadow. That's the right thing. You didn't blow it. You didn't do it wrong.
You're supposed to do that. You're supposed to drag all this stuff down with you. But, you see, what you're supposed to do then is to heal it -- to allow the Wound to be healed, to listen to your Soul, to let it explain why it had to happen, where you would have gone had it not happened, why you had to be tethered, why you had to be reined in, why you had to be yanked out of the sky and crashed into the earth. Had you not been, this would have been a wasted lifetime, because you would not have been you. You would have been an extension of somebody else -- a twisted, hollow extension.
With the denial of spirituality, however, for many the Wound is never healed. It's supposed to be that in this Shadow place you learn the secrets, you understand.
7 Faces of Dr. Lao () - IMDb
You start looking at what your name is, at what your destiny is, at what your power is. What is your passion? And what is your breath of change, of transcendence, of transformation? You are, from this Shadow, supposed to emerge into this world to test out what you learn, to try things out to see what works. And then you go back into the Shadow again to redirect. You come out, go in, come out, go in. Your growth is cyclical. There are times to be in the world, and times to remove yourself from the world.
There is time to be out there, and time to be inside. There is a time when you are supposed to try things out, to experiment in this grand playground, to learn how to play the games and to create new games. And when the rules don't work, or when your technique is faulty, you go back in and find out why -- back into that warm, moist place that is your Shadow. You go back into the Underworld.
The Shadow is with you from the time when you're roughly 16 to the time you're about That's 40 years, and for many, sadly, that's more than half a lifetime. Most of you are now in your Shadow time. The Wave Generation -- that bulge in worldwide population called the baby boom -- is in the Shadow, in the time of mid-life. Do you realize that in the next five years there will be more women in menopause than there has ever been in the history of your planet? It is an incredibly powerful time.
Now we know in your world menopause is not considered powerful. But remember, your world is a chauvinistic world which sees most feminine functions as dirty and distasteful and a source of embarrassment. But it is an incredibly powerful time, that stage of one's life in the latter part of the Shadow years. Men go through a menopause as well, of a different nature, of a different kind. And it also comes in the latter years of the Shadow. In your mid-to late-forties, for men and women alike. This is the Shadow time. The Double comes when you emerge from the Shadow, having experimented, having explored, having tried everything out, having made the mistakes that you are supposed to make and the mistakes that you're not supposed to make.
This is when you come out into the world, when you come out of the Shadow to be your full and total self. This is when women, past their menopause now, come into the time when they can be who they are fully and completely. Men if they handle it right can be past the imprisonment of other people's definitions of manhood and can truly discover their whole self. Finally, you can be who you want to be, and be who you intended to be. You can fully come into the time of wisdom. It happens in the mid-fifites or early sixties.
It varies. Again, it's not absolute. This is the time when many, emerging from the Shadow but not having done the Shadow Work, long for that Eternal Youth, long for that passion, long for that time, and try to go back there. You never can. You didn't have it then, and you're not going to get it now. Others, recognizing that sad truth, come out of the Shadow and sit in the sun and wait to die. On the East Coast it's called "moving to Florida. Move them to Sun City. Move them to the Southwest where it's hot, but it's dry heat.
Some, having taken advantage of the Shadow, emerge and become wise and have a life that they've been waiting to live -- a life filled with their dreams and their desires and their powers and their grounding and their passion. These people don't have the fire of a teenager. They have the glow of a mature fire, and their fire does burn eternal. You've seen some of them in your life, these older people who glow, who radiate, who have a wisdom, who are living the fullness. It doesn't have to wait until then. You can become wise much earlier than the time of the Double, but just in case you don't, that Face of the Soul will show up and force you out of the Shadow.
What you do as you face yourself is make the decision: Am I going to go back and try to live my parents' life or my children's life? Am I going to live my life? Or am I going to die? And the choice is made then. In your mid-fifties you decide. Oh, the health problems may not show up for a decade or two, but the decision is made. For those of you who decide to try to return to the youth, the senility won't set in for another couple of decades, but it'll be there. And between the choice and the senility, you can make a fool of yourself, that's so. The final Face of the Soul, the last face, is that of The Remain.
It comes at your time of dying, and at the times when you might die.

When you choose to die, it ushers you out and watches over the remain. If you choose not to, it retreats, and waits. At the end of life, it is this Face of the Soul that comes to you to usher you out of the body. At times of near-death experience, it is also the Soul that comes to you. It is often the one who sends you back. Not hurt alone, but hurt that is pain. When a part of you dies, it is the Remain that comes. Those of you who have worked with healing and have gone through the experience of The Valley of Lost Souls, it is that Soul, the Remain, that travels nightly, waiting for you to retrieve yourself, watching over you, because your Soul will never abandon you Your Soul will never abandon you.
And therefore, the Face of the Remain also shows up at the time of the Wounding. But it is the Shadow Soul that picks you up, and starts putting you back together again. Those are the Faces. And you can see how you can get so misguided and off-course in a world that denies the very existence of Soul. It is the Soul that keeps your course of growth according to your pattern, according to your rhythm, that allows and makes sure that the ebbs and flows happen, and that the waxings and wanings occur as well.
It is your Soul that nudges you -- maybe bumps you -- when you get off-course. It is your Soul that lets you know when it is time to change course, when it's time to move up an octave. Now there is a tendency, because of the natural propensity for hierarchy, to try to figure out: "Well, where does it fit?
Is my Soul above or below my Higher Self? Where are my counselors? Let the Soul be a part of your team. It's not better than your Higher Self; nor is your Higher Self better than it is. But it's there with its many faces. The Soul holds secrets that only it can reveal even, though certainly we could assume your Higher Self, being who it is, knowing all, knows those secrets.
But there are secrets of the Soul that can only be learned from the Soul, not because they have priority or hierarchy, but because the Soul has the resonance, the energy, the essence that comes to live with those Secrets. Perhaps moving beyond the Faces of the Soul into the Dialogues with the Divine, beyond the Faces to that One Soul is where the secrets lie -- not in the hierarchy, but in the resonance, the connection, the essence of being in communication with your Soul. It holds the destiny. It holds the power. It holds the talent, and the means and the wherewithal to discover and have your talent revealed Previous Next.
