SUCH a title as the above emphasizes our firmly held opinion that the wise Guardians of humanity, whom we call Masters, ever keep our human spiritual progress in mind, and at all times strive to promote it. It is not possible within a small compass to relate with any adequacy the story of the guidance that some Masters of Wisdom have given to The Theosophical Society throughout its history.

The subject of human regeneration is very important because a truly momentous change in the history of humanity will occur only when there is a revolutionary change in the human being. Probably a sufficient number of human beings must change to bring about a radical change in the course of human history. Therefore it is important for us to explore this question.

Everything that is good, enlightening, that is calculated to alleviate another's trouble and inspire him with courage, every improvement of social, political and other conditions is part of evolution. But we must discover what is most worth doing by us, what we should especially aim at, because the needs of humanity are so very various.

What theosophy means

The term "Theosophy" comes from the Greek theosophia, which is composed of two words: theos ("god," "gods," or "divine") and sophia ("wisdom"). Theosophia, therefore, may be translated as the "wisdom of the gods," "wisdom in things divine," or "divine wisdom".

“Gratification of curiosity is the end of knowledge for some men,” wrote Blavatsky’s teacher, and this curiosity led to a question being put some years ago to the Adepts, who furnished the main body of Esoteric Buddhism and all the important matter in The Secret Doctrine, in respect to other visible globes. The author of Esoteric Buddhism then construed the reply to mean that Mars and Mercury…

One of the primal mysteries with which man has occupied himself throughout the ages is that of his origin. Science has brought forward many fascinating facts and theories but these are frequently modified or changed with new discoveries.

Ravine

The Master stood on a great ledge of rock extending far out over a precipice that seemed miles below. With his face lighted by the first rays of the coming day that shot across the peaks above him and with his hands clasped behind him he waited in silence for the coming of the pupil to whom he had signalled.

purpose

Our present lifestyle often fails to satisfy or bring us peace, even during times of ‘happiness’.Sometimes we feel hollow and so we look outside of ourselves for satisfaction. There are always those who, for a price, are ready to offer us a quick fix to satisfy this feeling of inner emptiness.

reincarnation

Realizing the truth of reincarnation should be an inspiration to us, for then we know that the great men and women of the world tell us in their persons and achievements what we with effort may become. For the future flows by the law of cause and effect from the gathered momentum of the past.

death

"Men fear death," said Lord Bacon, "as children fear the dark." We regard death with fear and repulsion because it breaks the continuity in our lives. Yet if we consider it simply and quietly, is it not actually a phenomenon which is as natural as birth? It is taking place all the lime around us. The leaves fall from the trees and fresh leaves spring in their places.…

“There is no death but only in appearance - even as there is no birth save only in seeming. The change from ‘being’ to ‘becoming’ seems to be birth and the return again from ‘becoming’ to the state of ‘being’ seems to be death.’

timeless

One of man’s basic needs is to know, to understand, to find meaning. He must have answers — especially answers to life’s fundamental questions — if he is to be whole. Is there design and purpose in nature? Does man’s life have any meaning in itself, apart from the meanings he imposes on it?

What

Theosophy is the body of truths which forms the basis of all religions, and which cannot be claimed as the exclusive possession of any. It offers a philosophy which renders life intelligible, and which demonstrates the justice and the love which guide its evolution.

Even among those who recognize the spiritual nature of humanity and the possibility of our knowing directly the Reality, which is hidden within the universe and ourselves, there are two schools of thought with regard to the methods by which this knowledge may be obtained. According to one, our spiritual progress depends entirely upon the grace of God, or Kripā, as it is called in Sanskrit.

In the world of many people, each is different in many different ways – internal and external.  Some people seem more intellectually oriented, focussed on thoughts and reasoning, others more creative, focussed on and sensitive to feelings.  Yet others are action oriented, the direction of their action determined by thoughts or feelings – whichever is more dominant.

How well I remember John Algeo pronouncing in his sonorous voice the difference between a labyrinth and a maze. Both, he said, are meanders that one walks through hoping to achieve the centre goal.  The difference is that if one continues pressing onward in a labyrinth, no matter how many crooks and turns, one will finally reach the goal. A maze is an entirely different matter.

Both, he said, are meanders that one walks through hoping to achieve the centre goal.  The difference is that if one continues pressing onward in a labyrinth, no matter how many crooks and turns, one will finally reach the goal. A maze is an entirely different matter.

Gnostics

Much of our understanding of Gnosticism comes from a Christian perspective which may be conditioned because the Gnostics were branded as heretics by Christianity and condemned. Irenaeus, a Greek and early Church father in the late second century, famously wrote Adversus Haeresus (Against Heresies) attacking Gnosticism.

What should theosophical groups study

Let us take a moment to consider this question that is often asked by Branches and Study Centres, using a condensed perspective on the subject from John Algeo, past International Vice-President of the Theosophical Society. I consider this a very important topic for us all to consider.

Helena Roerich (1879-1955) was an unusually gifted woman, author of many books. Her collected Letters, in two volumes, are an example of the wisdom, spiritual insight, and simple advice she shared with a multitude of correspondents--friends, foes, and co-workers alike.

The germs of these blossoms and fruit are already concealed within the plant. But it is impossible for one who…

One of the most baffling problems of spiritual life is to sustain one’s interest and enthusiasm in the midst of endless difficulties and the severest trials. It is the routine and the monotony of everyday existence that sap one’s vitality and strength.

The problems of life, to be even faintly understood, must be viewed from a great standpoint. Man is not a newly created, arbitrarily endowed being. He is a creature in process of evolution, and not only one life, but many lives are his in the great school of the world, which is the field of his growth and development.

Dogma? Faith? These are the right and left pillars of every soul-crushing theology. Theosophists have no dogmas, exact no blind faith. Theosophists are ever ready to abandon every idea that is proved erroneous upon strictly logical deductions; let Spiritualists do the same. Dogmas are the toys that amuse and can satisfy but unreasoning children.

As a personality “the Old Lady”, as we affectionately called her, was like a mother to me; but if my reminiscences were to be confined to that personality, dealing only with happenings and doings in the physical world, they would be of little interest and would convey an utterly false impression of the real H.

Mind is a name given to the sum of the states of Consciousness grouped under Thought, Will, and Feeling. During deep sleep, ideation ceases on the physical plane, and memory is in abeyance; thus for the time-being “Mind is not,” because the organ, through which the Ego manifests ideation and memory on the material plane, has temporarily ceased to function.

Mas o que é a Verdade? Seria um estado de consciência em que se percebe as coisas como são, objetiva e subjetivamente, sem ilusões?  Pode a Verdade ser possuída?

Marco Aurélio Bilibio

Um novo tipo de espiritualidade está surgindo. Em meio à crise de sustentabilidade enfrentada em todo o planeta, a conexão psíquica do ser humano com a natureza se fortaleceu e aquele que busca a elevação sente a necessidade de estar em harmonia com todas as formas de vida.

Pilgrim and the Path

Theosophy tells us that we are pilgrims, implying that we are on a journey to a particular place. If we decide that we are indeed pilgrims and start to look for the path that will take us to the goal of our pilgrimage, we should also have some idea of why we are traveling and where we are headed. To begin a process of self-unfoldment, we had also better know what is being unfolded.
