“Even this will pass away”

Dear friends,

 

I share with you some wise words of Robert Crosbie and John Garrigues on the theme “Obstacles and opportunities.”

 

*****

“Everybody on the Path goes through similar obstacles; by having them and overcoming them, you become teachers with knowledge of how to help. If you had no obstacles, you would not know how. Thank Karma for “obstacles.”



“Even this will pass away” is a good motto to keep in mind, when…

Work for Others

Dear friends,

 

By the end of her life, HPB made an intense effort to emphasize the importance of the practical application of Ethics in everyday life.

We learn that ethics is the art of…

The good and the beautiful

Dear friends,

 

Like B.P.Wadia wrote,

 

"We have to learn to see the good and the lovely side of beings and things. Nothing can be perfect in this world and we have to build our own complete perfection out of a variety of perfections mixed up with gross imperfections. Of course we must look not only in those we love but everywhere for the good and the beautiful. The Raja-Yoga chapter of the Gita (the 9th) opens…

Nature is bountiful

Dear friends,

 

This excerpt from B. P. Wadia is very interesting.

 

 What are our real necessities?

 

"The Law of Necessity is another name for Karma. Nature never works unnecessarily. That which is not necessary should be avoided. Nature is bountiful, profusely so, but her economy is marvelously profound. The great Mother…

The Meaning of the Swastika

Dear friends,

 

During the first decades of the 20th century the Nazi regime distorted and made criminal use of ancient symbols of eastern philosophies.

 

For example, the sacred symbol of the swastika has become so widely associated with Nazi Germany that it is why it has a negative connotation in the minds of so many people.

 

There is a new article published at the theosophical website …

Being Arjunas

Dear friends,

 

We must learn with the good and less good things that occur in our daily life. Sometimes we think that our cross is heavier that we can load but what we get is what we really need, to remove the veils of illusion and ignorance of our hearts.

 

Robert Crosbie said,

 

“This is a school and everything that comes for us to do contains a lesson for us. ‘We should not forget that, ever. What comes at any…
