Spirituality as a defense, don't give up quotes, Patanjali and Alice Bailey

A change in blog policy


Written by Anonymous on Jul 07, 2010 09:44 am

To make things a bit
easier for me to manage, I’ve set my newsletter Lucifer7 to combine the
posts in my various online blogs. But I had planned ahead quite a lot
of material to be posted on that newsletter. Most of this will be
posted on either All Considering or My Spiritual Quotes. This ...

Short spiritual quotes

Written by Anonymous on
Jul 06, 2010 10:37 am

H.P.Blavatsky in “Our
Cycle and the Next”. For real Theosophy is Altruism, and we cannot
repeat it too often. It is brotherly love, mutual help,
unswerving devotion to Truth. If once men do but realize that
in these alone can true happiness be found, and never in wealth,
possessions, or any selfish gratification, then the ...

God and the Absolute, theosophy quote

W.Q. Judge quote, The
Theosophical Forum of New York, December 1892, p. 3) “Theosophy holds
God to be One and eternal, – Absoluteness itself. The Bible says that
man was made in the image of God. Man we understand to be composed of
seven principles, – a union of the three higher, the immortal
principles ...


Newsletter update & New spiritual stuff on squidoo and Katinka Hesselink Net

For my newsletter readers:
It turns out that the way I’ve been sending out this newsletter over
the past 7 (!) years is becoming too labor intensive. It no longer fits
the way I do my online work. I’ve found a new way to organize this –
and don’t worry: I’ll make sure you all ...

Blavatsky about the symbolism of the Christian Cross
Written by Anonymous on Jun
30, 2010 09:33 am



One of my Dutch readers
wondered after reading my piece about symbols, about the meaning of the
Christian Cross according to H.P. Blavatsky. I thought I’d look it up.
The closest I could find on the topic was Blavatsky on Crucifixion. She
says there that: The cross itself, to which the whole man was attached,
...
World Congress: Unofficial powwow about the future of the Theosophical Society



Written by Anonymous on Jun 30, 2010 04:11 am

I think it would be a good
idea to set a date / time on our powwow about the future of the TS.
There are, so the grapevine tells me, about 400 people coming to the
World Congress. That’s huge. I’m also told that the congress in Sidney
had workshops that had 80+ people in ...


The Wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras: A New Translation and Guide by Ravi Ravindra


Written by Anonymous on Jun 27, 2010 06:08 am

The yoga sutras are two
thousand year old spiritual classic. In India every spiritual teacher
of any note has written a commentary on it. Ravi Ravindra is the latest
of Jiddu Krishnamurti’s students to do the same. For that reason alone
this book will be read in theosophical circles at least. But Jiddu
Krishnamurti doesn’t ...

Alice A. Bailey Quotes from her Autobiography
Written by Anonymous on Jun
27, 2010 05:56 am



From the earliest possible
time we were taught to care about the poor and the sick and to realize
that fortunate circumstances entailed responsibility. Several times a
week when it was time to go for a walk we had to go to the
housekeeper’s room for jellies and soup for some sick person on the ...

The Unfinished Autobiography by Alice A. Bailey

Written by Anonymous on Jun 27, 2010 05:47 am

I’m not really into Alice
Bailey’s work, nor into that of ‘The Tibetan’, but this autobiography
is great. Funny, full of self knowledge and simply fascinating from the
point of view of esoteric history. Alice Bailey was born and raised in
England in 1880. She lived through both world wars and lived the
transition from ...


William Quan Judge today

Written by Anonymous on Jun 16, 2010 05:01 am

The Aquarian Theosophist
goes on writing about their efforts to get the TS Adyar to recognize
Judge. I’m pleasantly surprised at the calm tone of their last post.
They report that the German TS website mentions Judge as one of 5
theosophists who get a biography on there. I have to agree that it’s a
...
SEO: making your theosophy site get google traffic


Written by Anonymous on Jun 13, 2010 05:16 am

I know some high up
theosophical bobo’s read this blog, so I thought I’d share a must read
article on THE main Search Engine Optimization (SEO) blog out there:

These
are only the coding things. Send it to your webmaster and ask
them to report on any issues not taken care of. These are ...

Using spirituality and psychology as a defence


Written by Anonymous on Jun 09, 2010 09:30 am

1) Someone asking me to
become a lecturer on an event asked me about karma: I hear people
saying, about someone else, that their ill health or poverty is ‘bad
karma’. Tell that to the starving child in Africa. She was right of
course. 2) I heard a longtime Krishnamurti student saying: Your whole
work ...

The challenges and opportunities facing the Theosophical Movement

Written by Anonymous on Jun 09, 2010 08:28 am

We had a members meeting
in the Dutch TS (Aydar) at the end of May. It was spirited, but
business like. That is: we discussed important issues, without
scapegoating. I thought I’d share the main issues. I am glad to see
that the tabu on discussing these things is leading to important
insights coming out ...

Don’t give up – Theosophy Quotes
Written by Anonymous on Jun
08, 2010 01:38 pm



[B]e not discouraged, but
try, ever keep trying; twenty failures are not irremediable if followed
by as many undaunted struggles upward; is it not so that mountains are
climbed? (Blavatsky Collected Writings, Vol. 12, Esoteric Instructions)
With each morning’s awakening try to live through the day in harmony
with the Higher Self. “Try” is the ...
