I’m very glad to note that Pablo Sender had an article published in The
Theosophist about a topic that’s VERY relevant to today’s world. Since
he always gives me permission to publish his articles on my site, I
just did. I’ll leave it to you all whether he understood today’s
spirituality well enough. Anyhow, he ...

One of the options for my trip was starting at the Theosophical
compound in Adyar, Madras. However, I have good reason to think I’m not
welcome there. Instead a theosophical friend suggested they might be
able to get me a volunteer position in Auroville. Despite it not being
in North India – where my intuition ...

As you can see, I had another busy month. There are a lot of spiritual
gift ideas here, as well as pages on famous people and one quotes page.
Interfaith Jewelry – letting all religions coexist A lot of people are
worried about the way different religions antagonize one another. It’s
an old story, but ...

I try to keep you updated on what I put online elsewhere on the web,
when it relates to spirituality and religion. However, since I’ve
changed my newsletter technology, it amounts to this: I forget to share
the essentials, till it’s time for the next one to come out. I’m fine
with that actually, because ...

I dreamt of fruit going bad last night, so I wonder… are spiritual
teachings best ‘consumed’ fresh? What do you all think… are classic
spiritual books for instance of the same value as say the fresh
teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, Eckhart Tolle and the Dalai Lama? Comment
Zen: I’m not asking for dream analysis ...

Inspiring and thought provoking view on the spiritual path. A bit dated
in places, but not less fascinating for it. There are real gems here
though – things you’ll find rarely anywhere else. Though in places this
book is evidently rooted in a time before psychology had taken a
serious hold on our culture, it ...

The vow of the Bodhisattva is that she will not go into Nirvana until
every single suffering being has entered Nirvana. One has to understand
what this means. Our awakening is not a personal triumph. We do not
have to win a spiritual sprint. We are one mind. Awakening is to
penetrate more and more ...

Though in a sense I grew up to appreciate Sufism, as it was my
grandfather’s specialty, this book was my first real introduction to
it’s poetry, wisdom and mysticism. The essence of any spiritual path is
not in it’s history, it’s controversies or it’s mundane facts. The
essence is the wisdom people have lived and ...

Many people believe in old myths that contradict other beliefs and
scientific evidence, and this causes division. Religious dogmas and
myths were created before people had the benefit of modern science.
Science attempts to objectively discover how life works, and religion
attempts to subjectively find a way to live in harmony with life, so
they both have ...
