PROPOSING A NEW, MORE DEMOCRATIC WAY FOR SELECTING OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES
The way we recruit and elect Theosophical leaders should be reviewed to reflect modern society that is both fragmented and yet easily reconnected today with electronic technology. Traditionally, leaders in our Society have nominated and endorsed future leaders to replace themselves. This represents only a small group of people who are actively involved in the process and tends to revolve around a small… Continue

This is current and it is made just now ~ thoughts flow freely as if it is like water that move without strain or blockade. What makes it flow this way perhaps because the channel is open and is prepared and ready to receive thoughts.
It is about now, and nothing is too important than being at this very present moment. It is all that is and I couldn't find anything that has to be included except that everything fall into a single digit. That life is One. All things however small or… Continue

My views are
In the old days of theosophy H. P. Blavatsky talked highly about the following theosophical author and translator. His name was Tookaram Tatya or Turkaram Tatya. ("WHY I DO NOT RETURN TO INDIA": BCW, vol. 12, p. 159)
Here we have the Theosophical Society's view about Bhakti Yoga without metaphysical understanding.

I recently have found kindred souls with those who follow Kelontic Science.
I have a great deal of their information materials; ie: books, VCRs and DVDs.
But getting back to my personal deal. When I first realilsed through personal self enquiry that there is no death, it came as a milestone that caused the collapse of everything that I had been taught as a child and young adult regarding "religion". As it happened and continued to progress, Easter of 1998, I was gifted a… Continue

I thought this confirmation of my ABC model by an accredited physicist might be of interest. (The typographical error at the end of my most recent letter is actually a Freudian slip that now strikes me as being hilariously funny. LM)

A BALD, child-like creature dangles its legs from a chair as its shoulders rise and fall with rythmic breathing and its black eyes follow movements across the room. It's not human - but it is paying attention.

SCIENTISTS have engineered a virus that could form a battery three times more powerful than those found in gadgets today.
The bio-battery could conceivably power mp3 players, mobile phones, and possibly even a car.
The genes in the virus, dubbed M13, were modified to collect negatively charged particles and build a powerful, tiny electrode out of metal compounds and carbon… Continue

Specifically the introduction with the first section: Religion - The Greatest Story Ever Told
I’ve been asked to do a presentation to my Religious studies (Christian theology) class in college and I decided, that allot of the subjects I would have like to have talked about would not necessarily be universal for my class mates who range from strict atheist to Pagan.
