What Is Your Rank?
“What is your rank?”
Of all the ideas I have ever had--whether eventually jettisoned, promulgated for the purpose of semi-Self-aggrandizement, or hoarded like a Rosicrucian before there were web sites with PayPal donations--few notions seem as intuitionally (therefore “Theosophically”) true to me as the existence of a hidden Psycho-Spiritual Hierarchy.

ANCIENT SAGES taught that this physical world is interpenetrated by a series of increasingly ethereal worlds or fields, composed of energy-substances beyond our range of perception.
The fields closest to us are referred to as the “astral light.” It is already confirmed by science that the fundamental building block of matter is energy. And all physical life, from crystals to the atoms and cells of our body emit this energy in the form of photons—waves and particles of… Continue

We see the line all the time. We hear it parroted all the time. But what does it really mean?
Is there any truth in religion at all to be higher than? Are religion and truth mutually exclusive qualities? Is religion a senseless bondage to myth and tradition, none of it of any value other than to the priests and preachers who profit from human ignorance and fear?
And what is truth in the first place? How would we know it if we fell over it and would it matter if we… Continue

Pink Angel and I had a brilliant performance at Galapagos Art Space last night and fell in love with the venue. Look for us to do more performances in this "green" space. We never touched the stage--always seeking maximum interaction with the audience. The audience also got a massage because they were sitting on our drum.

A COMMON SENSE critic of scientific pretensions, who has wit and sanity united to an elevated moral intelligence, is soul-refreshing.
Such is Mary Midgley, dubbed by the Guardian, UK, “the most frightening philosopher in the country”—today, at age 89, she is still receiving accolades, and taking no prisoners.
Her logic is seamless, her ideas exquisitely Theosophical. She takes on materialism with a Blavatskian flair:
“…the real trouble with the… Continue

Evaluating "The Secret": cosmic candy store or is it for real?
by Martin Euser
With all the hype around "The Secret" going on, it is opportune to say a few things about this whole thing; the more so, since I have written about the use of the powers of the mind since 1994 in my various articles as can be found in my ebook

When the Spirit Doesn't
“Incidentally,” said old J.W. von Goethe, “I despise everything which merely instructs me without increasing or immediately enlivening my activity.”
And now, of course, the only thing which is likely to enliven Theosophy, its organizations and individuals, may be a radical shift toward Theosophical psychology. Like old Goethe, many modern people may have little time and/or… Continue

There is a special story about a piece of stone from the Star Sirius. (I was reading upon the Agni Yoga discussion forum). A meteorite stone supposedly, given to Nicholas Roerich, in circumstances hard to verify.
While the Chintamani Stone as other supernatural stones and objects, the search often relates to the physical item and the very possession of such item is the alleged key to its magic, in reality the physical item is seldom as important as its corresponding, “doppelganger”… Continue

Ever drifting down the stream–
Lingering in the golden gleam–

WHEN our rational brains are all heated up, arguing life’s complexities, that’s usually the best time to kick off our shoes and give it a rest.
