Envision the micro/macrocosm
of the Great one Being,
I'm teetering between selfish love and transcendental love.
I fear the direction I'm headed. I fear that all that I've ever known is about to be stripped away from me forever. What is the point of learning what we are inside, if the cost of this knowledge is eternal separation and alienation from what we once loved?
To be fair, I'm already separated from all the objects of my selfish love. Well, the one object. Forced to be separate from her. I've turned…Continue
My senses tell me (I) exist in a body. I have been touched by (the other side). I see me in a mirror. Yet consciousness and awareness are also (I feel) esoteric or metaphysical. I understand the physical part, it's the esoteric part that bewilders me. I cannot see my mind, my mind is part of my brain (like it or not) therefore I deduct I am part spirit, Which I do not understand.
How can a material person other…Continue
'Today we are forced to celebrate all our fasts and festivals after over 23 days of their real Shastric prescribed time, and we continue to follow the wrong path over fourteen centuries. The Government of India’s 1952 Calendar Reforms Committee had recommended a seasonal calendar and also noted that “in continuing to follow the nirayana system, the Hindu…Continue

I know that Egyptologists, academics and other intelligent people looking at the Egyptian culture and religious beliefs have a complete misunderstanding of what they are looking at. I am an esoterist; therefore, I look at problems esoterically as well as exoterically.
My expertise lies in the study of the first chapter of Genesis esoterically: what this means is that every…Continue
“If agnosticism can be considered the sophisticated territory between disbelief and belief, perhaps Theosophy can be considered the even more sophisticated territory between agnosticism and belief.”—General Theososophy
Guarding the Temple of Truth there are two fierce figures named Paradox and Confusion.
Certain things might, at least temporarily and/or playfully, be called “Real Magic” when there are no immediate rational explanations for them. Nevertheless, there may be some other, “Theosophically inspired,” life-manipulating techniques which can be called “semi-Real Magic”—not because they don’t always work—they do, at least in my experience—; but rather, simply because one can perhaps think of…Continue

This reminds me of psychology. Finding the true path to self. I am enlightened by this piece. Paul
In the last couple of years the levels of senseless violence perpetrated by unstable teenagers and 20-somethings has rising to levels that are quite disturbing.
There has to be a cause and a cure for this type of thing. No matter how you slice it, the whole thing is bad and wrong.…Continue
What is the use of this Sutra , or why one should even try to understand this Sutra is a pertinent question here . Its importance is mainly in Knowledge meditation wherein we come to ''Know'' where we are located at a particular time in thought . An attempt is made to explain how it works .
Apart from the body , we are a mixed consciousness (or undifferentiated) of the mind, intellect , Memory and Ego (the empirical ). All these together as one are known as 'Chitta' or 'Chittam' in…Continue
“If you are looking for a Master to guide you in Theosophy, perhaps you should start by eliminating everybody who had to do the same thing.”—General Theosophy
I just want to let everyone know that I finished my research on the great artworks of Catholicism and it has recently been published. It can be viewed at the following link:
“A thing even Theosophers may not fully understand about Real Magic, as contrasted with the fairy-tale-grade magic of literature and movies, is that it may not actually be possible to willfully produce predictable, specific results; however, it may indeed be possible to meditatively create, in advance, general or at least “less differentiated” psychological states or “flavors” which,…Continue
“Theosophy is intuitive knowledge or wisdom associated with improved realization of one’s own Transcendent (‘Divine’) Nature; therefore, if a person only studies the writings or teachings of others, he or she may actually be a thee-osophist, not a Theosophist.”—General Theosophy

In the Patanjali System of Yoga or Ashtanga Yoga as it is known (viz. Yoga consisting of Eight sections) there is among the many sutras one particular sutra towards the end of the discourse - (I am not sure of the number but I distinctly recollect that it was the last sutra of a section or of the book or the book itself is unknown to me ).
the sutra consists of just one word ''Kramath" - but has very huge ramifications -
Kramam means "in order '' - as in the sentence with a…Continue
