Wise and Joyful Words

Share some wise words from Joy; or joyful words from the wise? We shouldn't look a truth-horse in the mouth! ;)



Joy Mills says in her article:

“In the truest sense, this is what it means to be a Theosophist, not simply a member of the Society, but an authentic Theosophist, a knower and a lover of wisdom, of truth, of beauty. It is to seek, to ask the really big questions, the central questions of human… Continue

Is the "Old Lady" Baaack?

FREE spirited students of Theosophy may be interested in more information concerning the writings of the young archeologist and historian D. M. Murdock, aka Acharya Sanning.



She is especially interesting when compared to the avowed mission of H. P. Blavatsky, to expose dogmatism and materialism in science and religion, (and Theosophy!)



HPB referred to her controversial "Lucifer" magazine as the Theosophical Movement's "combative manas."



"The personal God of… Continue

A Fiery Life

UNDERPINNING the universe is not gravity as taught today, but an electric vital power, according to Theosophy.



Notwithstanding, physicists are still stuck on gravity to support their “standard model”—that the weakest of forces rules the entire universe—about which, admittedly, they know not much.



Gravity is mathematically incompatible with the quantum laws that govern subatomic particles, and that “leaves 95 percent of the universe unexplained” writes Dennis… Continue

The Inner Ruler

THE Cherokee say that “our first teacher is our own heart,” but unfortunately our western science has rewarded that teacher with very few apples.



Mainstream medicine still looks at the heart as only a mechanical pump.



That view is beginning to change. The Medical Community is being challenged to expand its thinking about human biology, health, and wellness.



Leading-edge research in holistic medicine, biophysics, bioenergetics, and frontier biology all… Continue

Breath of Heaven

The August 5, 2009 NewScientist features 10 things about humans that science can’t yet explain. “We belong to a remarkably quirky species,” the article says, and “despite our best efforts, some of our strangest foibles still defy explanation.”



Among these supposed flaws are: blushing, laughter, teenagers, dreams, altruism, art, superstition—flippantly, even kissing and nose-picking are on the list.



At one point the writer demands: “what are they for?” Altruism:… Continue

Neti Neti

The expression, neti–neti, literally means “neither this, nor that.” The first is the rejection of a separate self or ego. It is a rejection of fragmentation or split from universal spirit. It means in the wholistic multidimensional context that we are not just separate egos.



We can not ever be defined as being separate from spirit without… Continue

The God Effect

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

Designing Mind

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

Fields of Dream

Ever drifting down the stream–

Lingering in the golden gleam–

Life, what is it but a dream?



-Lewis Carroll



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.



When faced with a critical decision, or stuck on a complex problem,… Continue

Unlocking the Cage

SPACE, time, matter and consciousness are omnipresent. But in science, a fundamental problem is created because they are considered independent things—a mistaken starting point for unlocking the nature of reality.



Their view is sustained because “most researchers still believe they can build from one side of nature, the physical, without the other side, the living,” writes Dr. Robert Lanza, in his May, 2009 book "Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to… Continue
