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
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
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
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
I was very fortunate to find the light-weaver website created by Duane Carpenter, a theosophist. The stunning website speaks for itself what is possible in the hands of a talented artist. It also it contains links to a lot of information. You visit and enjoy the site
He who would understand the Plains must ascend the Eternal Hills, where a man’s eyes scan Infinity. Be he who would make use of understanding must descend on the Plains where Past and Future meet, and men have need of him.
Talbut Mundy Om-The Secret of Abbor Valley
The current fighting on both sides of the Afghanistan-Pakistan frontier and the Khyber Pass which links the two countries brings to mind the theosophical novel… Continue
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
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

The book - Lives of Alcyone by CWL and AB is fascinating to read even if you consider it all fiction. It was not republished by TPH since 1924. The original publication used very poor quality paper which later became brittle and most threw them away. Courtesy of Internet and digital scanning, it is now available for download at scribed.com. It is in three files and here is the link for the first.
