Re: Secret Doctrine - Destroyed And Then Created Again?

>:-) Hi - I'm not sure if you were asking me that question, but for myself, I
experimented for a short time with some mind-altering drugs about 25 years
ago, but for the last 25 years I haven't touched anything like that, not even
And yes, I would offer a warning to anyone who might consider using that
approach. Leadbeater explained it well, saying that external stimuli only
affects one from the outside - and so one might be able to generate some
sorts of chaotic clairvoyance types of things, but that is only temporary -
only affecting your present life - not carrying over to future lives.
But if one works from within, by things like meditation, then one's Soul is
directly involved in the process, and so any progress one makes by that
method is a real advance that remains with one throughout all Future Lives -
and any types of abilities one develops that way is much more likely to be
under one's control, not the chaotic drug type things.
Well I believe all that, and that is how I've been living for the last 25
years, and I have no intention of changing. During meditation I feel much
Deeper than I ever felt back when experimenting with drugs - some of those
experiences were intense, but not as Deep as what I feel now.
And like I suggested, Astral projection is more exciting than drug
experiences anyway! - and since the Astral Plane is between the Physical
Plane and Heaven, usually it must be thoroughly explored before one can
awaken in Heaven. Although, the Astral Plane can also be experienced by
meditation, so projection isn't necessary. And there might be some dangers to
Astral projection, so one might want to consider that before attempting it.
I don't know, maybe there are ways of using herbal approaches that are of
value - Blavatsky mentions the use of Soma - but I don't think many people
today know how to use that method to any benefit, so personally I would warn
against it - g'Day! >:-) Grounge
