General Theosophy #26

“Someone skeptical of academia once said, ‘No one who ever mainly just studied great literature ever wrote any.’  Someone skeptical of organized Theosophy might someday say, ‘No one who ever mainly just studied great spiritual advances and contributions of others ever. . . .’”—General Theosophy

Planes or Dimensions. Are they Rational?

For me, the theosophical notion of multiple planes of existence is fascinating and thought provoking, but also very challenging to the rational mind. Perhaps "rational" is not the right term. It may be better to say that the notion of other planes of reality is challenging to a modern mentality overawed by the success and prestige of science. Accordingly, if the planes of theosophy are scientifically plausible, then the modern mentality is comfortable with them. However, if science deems…

Modern Science and the Dehumanization of Man

 This article from Philip Sherrard really makes one think..

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. We will all become Borg. Or not..? That's the question.

Using Theosophy to Clean-Up Your House or Apartment

Question: "What practical, day-to-day value does Theosophy offer?"

One Answer: “Using Theosophy to clean-up your house or apartment—‘magically’”



Most people do not need magic to do this, of course; however, some people might: “Bill Beresky,” for example.

This happened a long time ago. Since the Theosophical Society…

Comments on Jerry Hejka-Ekins's Intro to The Path collection

A pseudonymous author has in another Internet forum questioned certain dates in Jerry' intro. Theosophical circle is small and most of the active players know each other, at least on the Internet. Surely the man or woman who has been hiding under assumed name is someone we all know or even possibly is one of the members here.

 

If there are factual errors, why the writer did not choose to contact Jerry directly so that…

Out of print theosophical books - A simple solution

 The uploading of early Theosophists, Lucifer and The Path demonstrated what is doable by a handful of dedicated theosophists. Further, out of box thinking, brought me to the subject of out of print theosophical books. Using KISS and non-organizational and non-business approach, here is my loud thinking.

Notes from the International Convention 2010

I attended the 135th International Convention in Adyar last week. Just a few comments:

1. The harmonious group in attendance was really wonderful. There were old and new faces that I got to meet and it was such a wonderful atmosphere of brotherhood. When people  live together in Theosophy, a magic occurs that is hard to define but there is a different conciousness that one does not find in the regular day to day world.

 

2. There were many good talks and excellent…

Happy New Year - And a Change...

Greetings to everyone from Theosophy.Net

2010 was an exciting year and we have accomplished much.  Let's take a look at where we've been.

We have pursued a strategy of producing freely available core writings within the Theosophical tradition, including:

  • The Theosophist - under HPB's Editorship
  • Lucifer - by HP Blavatsky/Mabel Collins/Annie Besant
  • A series of reference works in conjunction with the Stanzas of Dzyan research project.  Not only do…
