ornamentalmind commented on andrasnm's blog post Killing Pigeons
"While killing is approached philosophically on different levels even within Buddhist traditions, the personal wisdom shared here is the Truth.   In that spirit, when I was about 3 years old and was playing in the back yard in a garden, my…"

"John E. Mead: Yes, you are quite right in saying that the individual has a choice and that is the foundation of spirituality: that the individual can go either one of two ways: THE WAY OF THE ANIMAL ENVOY or THE WAY OF THE SEEDED EARTH. There is no…"

Joe Fulton commented on ornamentalmind's blog post A Simple Analysis
"That would be a correct statement.  Traditional theosophies focus more on a method than in stating a specific doctrine.  That is the major difference.  Does this exclude HPB?  No.  Not one bit.  However, gone is the…"

"John, should I understand your post to mean that Joe's 'New Direction' is more in line with what is meant by Theosophy than the previous focus on HPB's texts etc.? Thanks in advance."

"just a comment on "in the spirit of Joe’s New Direction".The main difference, or spirit, is that Theosophy is never defined through belief in a specific Occult Doctrine, Occult Dogma or Occult religion. Theosophy is Doctrine-less in…"

"Actually, nothing can be more complex then what you choose to call a "simple analysis". I would beg to differ concerning not grasping Wisdom through erudition.  That is all we do as human being: read the world whether it is through…"

A Simple Analysis

If one assumes that Theosophy actually means ‘Divine Wisdom’, then proceeding on ‘Our New Direction’, I find the following to be of interest: The recognition that the Divine is not relative/subjective in nature. What follows from this is that such Wisdom is not to be found ultimately through erudition.The sharing of specific methods of achieving Theosis. For me, I currently practice works from Ichazo’s School, Arica.Just knowing #1 above does not preclude sharing ideas and concepts about…See More

  1. The recognition that the Divine is not relative/subjective in nature.

    What follows from this is that such Wisdom is not to be found ultimately through erudition.
  2. The sharing of specific methods of achieving Theosis. For me, I currently practice works from Ichazo’s School, Arica.

After joining the Theosophical Network on Facebook, I noticed you have an interest in Neo-Platonism. I'm sure you are at least somewhat familiar with Henry More, the 17th century Cambridge Platonist. But, are you familiar with his amazing tutorial student and later colleague, Vizcountess Anne Conway?

Before I accept anybody as one of my friends, I would like to know who they really are? Or, see or read some of their creative works or correspondences... Also, I am curious as to what does "ornamentalmind" stand for? Normally, I think of ornaments as narcissistic showpieces or curios that have no other usefulness? Is that what your mind is like -- or does it produce or know (or desire to know) anything useful? If so, what is it? ;-)
