Self-Realisation

Dorothy Bell is well known as an international educator in Theosophy.  She considers that it is the way we each see life that influences our understanding of our world.

INTRODUCTION

Great value is to be found in this little pamphlet by Mr. Geoffrey Hodson, value in three categories. Firstly, not much information on Kundalini and its inherent awakening power has been openly given to the world, for there are infinite dangers in its misuse and misdirected development. Therefore, this brief treatise affords an interesting introduction to the subject of the nature of the powers underlying true clairvoyance.

A challenging summary of three dozen Theosophical texts published from 1897 to 1926 on the higher energy bodies and planes: the causal, buddhic, and nirvanic. The ego in the title refers to our higher self. The book help explain these complex topics in a way the reader can comprehend.

It is important to grasp, not merely as a concept, but as a fact, that the Path is oneself. The Voice of the Silence states that one cannot travel on the Path until one has become the Path itself. The Path is the qualitative change which takes place in one’s consciousness and in the vehicles through which consciousness functions.

In a letter, Dorothy Bell shares thoughts on the power of a theosophical worldview to unravel a universal problem.

A letter to my Sister in India…  On the Equality of Men and Women

Namaste, dear Sister Deepa,

Thank you for the invitation to pen some thoughts ‘On the Equality of Men and Women’ a theme that, as the words unfold, may unexpectedly evoke a sense of balance and wholeness like the wings of a bird in flight. Perhaps it has something to do with the longing of the soul. Anyhow, this will be explored later, as there is a need to acknowledge that the theme has been prompted by events in both our countries.

INEQUALITY, IMBALANCE… AND A THEOSOPHICAL WORLDVIEW1

AMONG the many forces which inspire men to activity, none, perhaps, plays a greater part than the feeling we call devotion — together with some feelings that often mask themselves under its name, though fundamentally differing from it in essence. The most heroic self-sacrifices have been inspired by it, while the most terrible sacrifices of others have been brought about by its pseudo-sister, fanaticism. It is as powerful a lever for raising a man as is the other for his degradation. The two sway mankind with overmastering power, and in some of their manifestations show an illusory resemblance; but the one has its roots in knowledge, the other in ignorance; the one bears the fruits of love, the other the poison-apples of hate.

 

CHRISTINA ROSSETTI's well-known lines:

Does the road wind up-hill all the way?

Yes, to the very end.

Does the journey take the whole long day?

From morn to night, my friend.
