Manas, Buddhi and Monad
Akasa is the fifth universal cosmic Principle. Immutable in its higher Principles, it is the ‘Soul of the World’. Correlative in its grossest aspects and portions, it is creative in its physical nature. The human ‘Manas’ or Mind proceeds from this Principle and strictly corresponds to this.
Cosmic Ideation, when focused in a Principle or a Body, becomes the consciousness of the Individual Ego, and depending upon the capacity of the…Continue

Rudolf Steiner’s Legacy Today
2011 marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of the spiritual and esoteric teacher Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Although his key book is titled Theosophy, and he was secretary-general of the German branch of the Theosophical Society from 1902 to about 1913 when he left to start the Anthroposophical Society,(1) I do not recall many blogs here on his life and…Continue
The work done by theosophists in India on the social aspects had immense effect on how theosophists and Theosophical Society is viewed in India. Many theosophists were involved not in speculation of what is going on in unseen world and occult side of things, but were active in improving the conditions of the masses. Why in the recent decades we do not hear of such interests in theosophists should be of concern to everyone. Unless our activities affect our fellow men and women and children,…Continue
Below are a couple of excerpts from a 1987 dialogue between Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet and a student, which analyses the Christian conception of Genesis, the denial of evolution and the problem of an 'absolute evil'. The dialogue…Continue

I have written this book, this is a draft and I am asking previews and comments on it. It is downloadable on Createspace and initially will only be available as an eBook for 99 cents.
I find some daily meditations actually require a bit of thought. They are not always a simple statement that sounds good.
I often find Sri Aurobindo as a challenge, he rarely states anything that is understandable to the lazy-minded.
So today I was looking at the quote:
"They told me, "These things are hallucinations." I inquired what was a hallucination and found that it meant a subjective…
Recently we received complaints from users of our website that some of the items do not work properly on iPads even though they are ok on desktops and notebooks.
Our technical support people do not have iPads to test and fix the working of the website. Hence we are looking for donation of iPads 2 and 3 or donation of money to buy iPads.
Theosophy Network is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, and hence all donations are tax deductible

These days, the economy is probably the last thing many people want to read about, because it is making so much news and almost none of it is good. Confronting the reality of such widespread material lack as we are currently seeing is daunting, and as analysts clog the airwaves and the blogosphere with endless torrents of statistics, numbers, and abstractions to which most people can't even relate, it's easy to run in the opposite direction whenever the opportunity presents…Continue
…………….I may be permitted to share a precious personal gain during the current incarnation(????). Candidly, I have come to a conclusion that all books & literature are the products of human brain & shall be based on subjective conditioning & perception. These are, as such, to be viewed & grasped prudently & judiciously and added to the existing stock of personal wisdom accordingly. Similarly, to understand & grasp the wisdom underlying an…Continue
Does anyone know of any literature of the history of Lucifer from a theosophical point of view? I heard that Lucifer and Satan ar two different things, but I cannot seem to find anything consistent about Lucifer online. Most websites slate theosophists as devil worshippers because of the Lucifer magazine in the early days, and quite frankly I am not interested in reading their opinions, as I do not consider myself a satanist.
The surface of life is a dark night with Moon deep hidden in clouds. The sky and the earth are full of shadowy illusions, mountain shapes of mist, ghosts that will vanish in the morning light. Why are the intricate shadows so beautiful? But they are on the surface of the stone, and not beautiful of themselves. Yet they paint their silver abstractions on the walk, suggesting awesome secrets. To be alive is to wonder at this mystery of…Continue

We were separated at birth,
the torrent, Alluvion, came
sudden like and the
massacred ego, awash
in the tempest hue,
had no harbor against
The images after, constructed
from Native spirits
untethered in the cold
inferno of an endless winter,

Ponder this . . .
Life is just a Stream,
Thought, in Mind Divine,
It moves beyond Perception
Where time, collapsed, remains unknown.
Newly born Stars, Planets spinning,
Naught but New Ideas unfolding;
Plants and Animals, All of human consciousness,
Just a thread within the Stream.
Inspiration comes, a Shock stirring the Nebulae,
Awakening potential, the birth of emergent form.
Some Ideas on Magical Thinking
The New Thought movement and the Secret has much merit but both fall short on practical advice and cautionary warnings.
The magick community also has its problems and misunderstandings with the true nature of phenomena. Let me post some ideas of mine.
Everything is relative, and subject to the concept of what we have for now.
Thus Theosophy is for our people in this state of development calls for more
da questions that everything is relative, and subject to the concept of what we have for now.
Thus Theosophy is for our people in this state of development calls for more

Meanwhile, my efforts are bearing fruit,…Continue
