Observation about Nature Spirits - New article by CWL

There is a new article on Internet, titled - 'My First Flight', in

which C. W. Leadbeater describes his first flight, which took place

between Brisbane and Toowoomba in Queensalnd, Australia, in 1928. He

makes some interesting observations on the nature-spirits of the air,

some of which he had not seen before!

Also, this is the first time I have seen anyone writing about

observing entities while on airplane flight. All theosophists know

that the entire… Continue

unsure if im own my own beliefs?

I am only 17 and i spend most of my time trying to figure out my beliefs. Ive researched alot but ive never found anything that is close to how i feel about life. I started thinking alot and writing down everything that came to me naturally before i even started researching any type of philosophical ideas. The weird part is there was nothing that influenced me to start wondering about this stuff ive never even really heard of it till i started researching so i thought i was just strange. I… Continue

New Secret Doctrine Abridgement published

There is a new abridgement of the Secret Doctrine out by Michael Gomes, and published by Penguin Paperbacks in paperback and ebook, both at $17.95 US. (288pp.) It is good to see a major publisher have a Blavatsky book out. Gomes has a good intuition in his historical papers, so I imagine it is a good selection. There are probably many abridgements of the SD, the only I know of are, One edited by Elizabeth Preston and Christmas Humphreys for Quest Books and Theosophical Publishing house (260pp,… Continue

A bit of hidden Theosophical History

From the Akashic DVD series, Madame Blavatsky, the Unknown Years.

While it is well known that HPB had a long-running feud with the spiritualist A. O. Hume, relatively few know the roots of the feud.

It all began one afternoon when Madame Blavatsky was paying a visit to Mr. Hume. They were in the library on the second floor of his house and she sat in an antique chair near the door. Unfortunately the combination of the immense gravity of her person and the age of the chair… Continue

Krishnamurti and Theosophy

The comments on my latest blogpost about theosophical popquizes went a bit off topic. So I thought I'd start a new blogpost discussing the issue.

I've written about this before, so I'll start by quoting myself a few times. Let's start with my first attempt at discussing this:

I still do appreciate Krishnamurti's teachings as valid on the path for many, but aspects of it just don't work… Continue

Let's have some fun with trivia quizes :)

Squidoo has created a template for online quizes that I've been having some fun with. So test out if you really practice the second object of the TS by studying religion, by taking my quiz about religion in general. Or whether you know enough about the largest world religion: Christianity. Perhaps a bit closer to home: I also made… Continue

Joseph Ross' books on Krotona

Joseph Ross’ books on Krotona

Sometimes, reading historical material gives a better perspective of TS.

Some take a simplistic view of TS as another world-wide worldly organization

like the various business and political organizations were are all familiar

with. Considering the unusual origin of TS and how and why it was launched

and the intense on-hands Adeptic guidance of TS in the early days, it makes

one think and possibly meditate.

Much of the… Continue
