The heart must have spiritual values as well as the mind?

Acording to the bible, the heart is the spiritual center for the body. Then there's the mind, another spiritual center within itself? Does the mind rule over the heart or vice versa? Who rules what? who is the master in these questions, the mind or heart or both. I tend to believe the mind is master over the emotions first then shares it with the heart.I claim the heart is more than biological it's spiritual.

Does love live in the heart first, then the mind or vice versa? The bible…

Can one find valid truth from hidden meanings?

Even tho we read in ignorance/literally/smboliclly (not understood), can any truth come to light from it? Do I remain ignorant or will God hear my plea? When a student of Aristotle questioned Aristotle about a lesson, Aristotle knew the student didn't understand the lesson, so he would rephrase the question.

God knew what was in Sauls mind and heart when he killed Stephan. Does God know what's in my heart to find truth? I want to believe he does. Does further questions bring more…

The mystery of belief.

Why do two or more people have doubts when they study Theosophy or the bible? I now see the hidden meanings within the bible and are drawn to Theosophy with their past theosophers. Have I always been drawn to these hidden enlightments by God, it is my hope I have been. I see two powerful enities, …

Theosophy my new adventure.

I seem to be drawn to theosophy over philosophy. I have found out philosophy is general human knowledge and questions esortoric thought. I am begining to understand human understanding is more material than spiritual. Spiritual goes deeper into material thoughts with plain language and no hidden meanings (which I hate), because there's a…

Change the mystery.

Sri Aurobindo,

After studying Sri Aurobindo, the word reincarnation comes to my mind. I am now wondering if our spirit is reincarnated while we are still alive and in our body. I know I have changed somehow because I (sense) it. If we can change our mind (which might be our spirit) and our life,…

External internal consciousness

What is consciousness? I would say it's (now, not the past or future but (the now) that you are aware of). It would seem to me that, time stands still, when one is having a (OBE) experience. But when we are (now conscious, we are at that moment, that's not past or present. When we have a external moment, time is present, where when we are having a internal conscious moment, time stands…

General Theosophy #107

“The certainty about a Theosopher is that he or she is speaking from and for himself or herself; the chance about a Theosophist is that he or she might merely be quoting a librarian quoting a librarian quoting a librarian. . . .”—General Theosophy

Something about esoteric imagination as such..

Well, I had decided to Google this subject today because, well I was just curious. I mean everything I know about imagination is that to have it you need to have lots of angles to pull from in which to create your own ideas. There was a scientific article that had described something more on the lines of how the brain works all on its own using whatever images it needs in which to create a "fantasy" or something in our…

Syria reconciliation proposal

 
 
Dear Colleague,
 
    The recent use of chemical weapons in Syria (by whatever faction - government or armed opposition) has increased tensions within Syria and its wider region.  There are real possibilities of an escalation of armed conflict unless creative steps for conflict resolution are taken both by governments and civil society as structured in Non-governmental…

A Note on Byron Katie

Let me first start by saying that I have no idea who Byron Katie is as of now. I just keep seeing her name pop up on my Twitter page under the Zen proverb tweets though. At first, I really didn't think much about it. I knew in time though that I would eventually have to check out who this woman actually was. I just knew that one day I would...



I had hesitated mostly because I had felt a sense of uncertainty (for whatever the case was.) So, I had decided to just wait. However,… Continue
