CWL Sends a Report From Mercury

The Solar System According to C. W. Leadbeater



Dear friends,

We all know how important it is, from the theosophical viewpoint, to understand as correctly as we can the universe, and especially our own solar system.

This effort has a PRACTICAL importance because, as H. P. Blavatsky says in “The Secret Doctrine” [The Theosophy Co. Edition, p. 17], there is a “fundamental identity of all souls with the Universal Over-Soul”. That is why, according to H.P.B., the hindus say that Brahma, the Universe, is in every atom of the universe.

We ourselves are microcosms, or microcosmic versions of the universe as a whole. Looking at the solar system, the student of esoteric philosophy vaguely discerns a wider picture of his own soul. Page 105 of “The Secret Doctrine” [The Theosophy Co.] elaborates on this crucial micro-macro relationship.

Having established the need for as much accuracy as we can in our vision of the solar system and the universe, let’s see now what are the revelations Mr. Charles Leadbeater can make to us about the planet Mercury. As you will see, these revelations could shake the very foundations of NASA’s present research programs on our solar system. Not to mention the European Space Agency.

C.W. L., an astonishing clairvoyant who proudly announced the Second Coming of Lord Christ and the end of all wars during the 20th century, has this impressive report on the planet Mercury:

“Of our future home, Mercury, we know much less than of Mars, for visits to it have been hurried and infrequent. Many people would think it incredible that life such as ours could exist on Mercury, with a sun that appears at least seven times as large as it does here. The heat, however, is not at all so intense as it would be supposed. I am informed that this is due to the presence of a layer of gas on the outskirts of the Mercurian atmosphere, which prevents most of the heat from penetrating. We are told also that the most destructive of all possible storms on Mercury is one which even for a moment disturbs the stability of this gaseous envelope. When that happens a kind of whirl-pool is set up in it, and for a moment a shaft of direct sunlight comes from the sun through its vortex. Such a shaft instantly destroys whatever life comes in its way, and burns up in a moment everything combustible. Fortunately such storms are rare. The inhabitants whom I have seen there are much like ourselves, though again somewhat smaller.”

So if you are planning to spend vacations on Mercury any time soon, you must take your umbrella with you, because of the dangerous sunlight. As to Mercurians, Mr. Leadbeater kindly reveals that they enjoy jumping into their houses:

“The influence of gravity both on Mars and Mercury is less than half what it is on earth, but while on Mars I did not notice any particular way in which advantage had been taken of this, I observed on Mercury that the doors of houses were quite a considerable height from the ground, needing what for us would be a respectable gymnastic feat to reach them, though on Mercury it is only a slight spring that is required. All the inhabitants of that planet are from birth possessed of etheric sight; I remember that the fact was first brought to my notice by observing a child who w as watching a the movements of some crawling creature; and I saw that when it entered its abode he was still able to follow its movements, even when it was deep down under the ground.”
(Bibliographical commentaries: This is from the book “Inner Life”, by C. W. Leadbeater, Section Ten. Published by the magazine “Theosophical History”, London, January 1988, see page 148 for the sentences quoted above. I also have the same text in the Spanish edition of “Inner Life”, by CWL, published in Buenos Aires by Editorial Glem. A Brazilian edition of the book “The Solar System”, by Mr. Arthur Powell – a follower of C.W.L.’s – can still be bought in Brazil with this description of physical life on Mercury. Another author and leading Adyar clairvoyant, Mr. Geoffrey Hodson, followed the same track at least up to the 1950s. Yet in later years the USA TPH editions of the book “Inner Life”, by C.W.L., have silently eliminated this description, as well as the longer and astonishing description of physical life on Mars.)

Dear Konstantin,
As the end of the TS has been (again) announced, I haste in sharing
some ideas about the subject.

One of HPB's Teachers declared: "You have still to learn that so
long as there are three men worthy of our Lord's blessing, in the
Theosophical Society, it can never be destroyed."  (LMW, I, 40, also
mentioned in HPB's ES Instructions III)

Surprisingly, something went wrong and the other Master associated
with the beginnings of the Society had this to say:

"Because the Society has liberated itself from our grasp and
influence and we have let it go — we make no unwilling slaves. He
[HSO] says he has saved it? He saved its body, but he allowed
through sheer fear, to its soul to escape, and it is now a soulless
corpse, a machine run so far well enough, but which will fall to
pieces when he is gone. Out of the three objects the second alone is
attended to, but it is no longer either a brotherhood, nor a body
over the face of which broods the Spirit from beyond the Great
Range." (LMW, I, 47)

Note that not even HPB, the 'direct agent' of the Mahatmas, could
save the TS at that time. Are the two above statements
contradictory? Or do they point to the responsibility of the
members? I believe the year was 1888.

The Australian section is not the biggest, ratio-wise. Probably
Finland or Cuba, one of the two, is.

There was a smoking ceremony at the opening of the World Congress in
Sydney, 2001, performed by Australian Aborigines. I did meet the
members from Ukraine but didn't know about the reported phenomena.
As Daniel Caldwell says in his website, there is indeed a morass of
