General Theosophy #15

“The new method for keeping one’s esoteric insights away from the attention of the profane is to simply NOT claim that they came from anyone more exalted or off-planet than oneself.”—General Theosophy

Respect - A Viewpoint



Have you ever considered that when you look up at someone, you can only see the footwear they use to cover their feet, the dust of their feet and of the worldly earth they have treaded; while…

The Gnostic - Alchemical connection

One of the greatest alchemists, in terms of how many students received their first great understanding of basic principles, is Basil Valentine. One could look up several of his works online. Anyway,, it is his name which brings up a very interesting relationship. Two of the great Gnostic fathers are Basilides and Valentinus. We know from fairly decent research that some of the Gnostic sects were carriers of the esoteric tradition from the Chaldeans, from the Egyptians, from the Hebrews and…

Chronovisor project

There is a book called Father Ernetti's Chronovisor: The Creation and Disappearance of the World's First Time Machineby Peter Krassa that claims that the Roman Catholic priest and occultist Pellegrino Ernetti invented a time machine called the Chronovisor based on Blavatsky's scientific theories. It claims he worked on developing it with Werner von Braun. Any thoughts from anyone? Has anyone here read the book?

Tolstoy and Gandhi: Light as Darkness Approached



Rene Wadlow



We possess a single infallible guide, the Universal Spirit that lives in men as a whole, and in each one of us, which makes us aspire to what we should aspire: it is the Spirit that commands the tree to grow toward the sun, the flower to throw off its seed in autumn, us to reach out towards God, and by so doing, become united to each other.

Leo Tolstoy

Re-writing the Secret Doctrine

Out of the discussion about the origin of the Stanzas of Dzyan, a group of members of this community realized that H. P. Blavatsky's book, the Secret Doctrine, has some features that makes it difficult for the current public, (both inside and outside Theosophical circles) to approach its study.

The purpose of this Blog is to discuss whether the relevant content presented by H. P. Blavatsky can be re-organized, annotated, and brought up to date, so that the principles of the Esoteric… Continue

Converstion of hard copies to electronic medium

Many times we may like to convert hard copies to electronic medium by scanning them. Theosophists world-wide are a minuscule in numbers and many are acquainted with each other. With the scanners becoming inexpensive, there would be an urge to convert hard copies of documents to a pdf file. However, we want to avoid re-inventing the wheel by trying to scan hard copy books and periodicals wasting time and labor. Anytime, we are embarking on a scanning project, it would be a good idea to inquire… Continue

TS is 135 years old today

Erica reminded everyone on theos-talk that TS is 135 years old today.

It is remarkable that we are now talking to a world-wide audience almost with the speed of light.

Theosophy has indeed affected almost everyone who came into contact with it.

Modern communication technology is going to make theosophy reach millions in days to come.

May the "Forlorn Hope" become reality, at least partially in the days to come.

NZ Theosophy Ning Site going off-line

I just learnt that the NZ Ning site may be going off-line in the

next few days. To some it may be a loss. However, it is really not so.



Due to the international character of Internet based forums, any

theosophist can interact with others around the world in such open

independent forums as theos-talk and theosnet ning site. Also these

forums are daily attracting users from around the world as they are (1)

open and not closed and (2) not controlled by any… Continue

The origin of the stanzas of dzyan and the 7 cosmic paths.

For an analyses of the fiery whirlwind, vortex and orphic egg shape see the site below. It includes some insights into the works of AAB and HPB as well as quantum physics. The whirlwind is more then an artistic or poetic metaphor but an actual energy body or gateway built between different levels of spiritual reality or dimensions. This…

Theosopher Wiki Project

The project has taken off. Joe Fulton should be congratulated on the idea. The article on HPB is excellent and it was indexed by Google. We all should collaborate and contribute to the project.
