Re: Theos-World USA: Keeping Away From Hatred

Hallo all,

My views are:

You for sure have some points of importance in your email.

There is one issue, which I would like to comment on a bit.

"Western democracies in general may be facing difficult moments, now. Yet
democracy, or the art of perceiving and managing unity and diversity as a
simultaneous process, is still the great lesson we have to learn, both
inside and outside the theosophical movement."

My views:
Yes, some western democracies are facing difficulties now.
But materialistic oriented democracies without wisdom and understanding of the importance of God-ParaBrahman,
will always create trouble and face problems. And country systems being lead by a religious priesthood of
a dogmatic kind will always face problems, because of their dead-letter vanity and strange emphasis on odd
ceremonial rituals.
THIS, - the various Theosophical groups and especially their leaders aught to carefully consider!
They aught to Consider and secure, that they are not themselves belonging to either of these two groups mentioned in the above.
This is a theosophical duty.

Physically wellknown so-called Theosophical or theosophical groups will not be able to act in a manner, which
will be helpful if they continously uncritically enroll members into their esoteric sections or any of their groups.
Theosophical groups aught to consider the following stance in our now present informations society:
A real Theosophical group or esoteric section will neither claim to have a mission to teach everyone, nor will it enrol
everyone into a particular group.

All this talk reminds me of the Chinese movie named HERO.
A beautiful movie on a great legend.
The movie by Zhang is set 2,200 years ago, during the reign of the King of Qin
(Chen Daoming), the emperor who united China and built the Great Wall.

The emperor realises the wisdom behind a sign given to him by the leading role in the movie
called "Nameless".
The Sign is called "Everything under the heaven".
The sign has three levels of interpretation.
It sort of relates to Arjuna's struggle on the spiritual path in the famous
script called Bhagavad Gita.

The emperor says just about the following, when he understands the meaning of the sign:

1.The unity between Sword and man, makes the master capeable of using anything
as a weapon, even a straw of grass.

2. When the sword is in the heart, then it is not needed in the hand,
and then one is able to strike ones enemy even at a distance of a hundred steps.

3. The highest aim of the master of the sword is to
neither have the sword in the hand or in the heart.
When this happens the master of the sword has create peace with the world.
He hold it sacred not to kill, but aims at creating peace to the world.

The movie is excellent in the sense, that it relates calligraphy with the art of
the sword.
- - - Words are like swords. Please remember that. - - -
So when any write an email at this place, or just an email, they aught to remember it.
My own self included.

Peace be with you all.

M. Sufilight with peace and love...

Subject: Theos-World USA: Keeping Away From Hatred


Looking at the U.S.A. With Respect:


Carlos Cardoso Aveline


Dear friends,

Before we all get too enthusiastic about criticizing the USA, we should
consider that worldwide organized hatred uses to have at least two poles.

Since the end of the Cold War, a new polarization of international and
inter-cultural hostilities opposes Western culture and Muslim world.

I do not want to deny here any of the Western mistakes. I acknowledge that
they are very clearly described in a text which many consider of great
importance, signed by "A Turkish Effendi" and published by H. P. Blavatsky
in "The Theosophist", March 1880. (1)

Yet another text, even more important and by H.P.B. herself, shows the
other side of the difficult equation between the Islam and Western nations.

H.P.B. wrote about some secret societies created in the Peshawar region,
where now Mr. Osama Bin Laden and the taliban have their strongholds in
Afghanistan, a region which includes the border region with Pakistan.

The article is about Mr. Abdul Ghafur (1794-1877), the ruler of a tribe
in Swat, in Peshawar, now part of Pakistan. A few months after the death
of Mr. Ghafur, H.P.B. wrote:

"If there be truth in the Eastern doctrine that souls, powerful whether
for good or bad, who had not time in one existence to work out their plans,
are reincarnated, the fierceness of their yearnings to continue on earth
thrusting them back into the current of their attractions, then Ghafur was
a re-birth of that Felice Peretti, who is is known in history as Pope Sixtus
V, of crafty and odious memory." (2)

Felice Peretti was Pope Sixtus V in Rome from 1585 through 1590. In his
"Philosophical Dictionary" (3), Voltaire describes Sixtus V as the most
arrogant, cruel and despotic of kings.

As t o HPB, she compares the Pope Sixtus V to the Akhund of Swat:

"Both were born in the lowest class of society, being ignorant peasant boys
and beginning life as herdsmen. Both reached the apex of power through
craft and stealth and by imposing upon the superstition of the masses.
Sixtus, author of mystical books and himself a practitioner of the
forbidden sciences to satisfy his lust for power and ensure impunity, became
Inquisitor-General. Made Pope, he hurled his anathemas alike against
Elizabeth of England, the King of Navarre, and other important personages.
Abdul Ghafur, endowed with an iron will, had educated himself without
colleges or professors (...). He was well versed in the Arabic and Persian
literature of alchemy and astrology, as Sixtus was in Aristotle, and like
him knew how to fabricate mesmerized talismans and amulets (....) . Each
held millions of devotees under the subjection of their psychological
influence, though both were more dreaded than beloved." (4)

About the Ghafur, the Old Lady writes that in spite the secrecy and mystery
he imposed about his life, "the one certain thing is, that he was the
founder and chief of nearly every secret society worth speaking of among
Mussulmans, and the dominant spirit in the rest."

She adds that he used false antagonisms, stimulating hatred in both sides of
political or social disputes.

This is important for us to understand what may be going on now, behind the
surface, in the politics of hatred between the Western world and the

The very fact that this intensely hating "Soul" was born once in the West
and made the Christian Pope; and then was born in a Eastern country to be
a top Islamic religious leader, shows that the "disciples of hatred", so to
say, search for contrast and use antagonisms for their own purposes, though
usually they disguise their hatred under sweet and religious forms.

Now, if you study the Letter 120 (Chronological Edition) -- which is
Letter 85 in the other editions of the "Mahatma Letters" -- you will see
that H.P.B.'s Masters wanted the theosophical movement to be open to
contrasts while keeping peace in the mind and heart. They wanted the
movement not to repress or deny its own paradoxes and contradictions,
because this is the way to get rid of occult hatred and psychological
violence of all kinds. Looking directly at contrasts with calm and then
going beyond them: this is one of the ways for the thesosophical movement to
help purify and recover human mind as a whole.

As to the strategical aspect of the presence of Abdul Ghafur (an ex-Pope)
, precisely in the Peshawar region, it may well be related to the occult
importance of that place.

It is in that region that the sacred Fourth Race Bamian statues, commented
by H.P. Blavatsky in "The Secret Doctrine" (5) , were destroyed between
March 2 and March 11, 2001, by the Taliban/Al Qaeda "mystical"

The Bamian Statues are connected to the complex systems of caves once used
by Buddhist Arhats and Ascetics, and now probably used (in that region) by
some of the taliban and Al Qaeda members. (A perfect hiding place, by the

The destruction of the Statues concluded in March 11, 2001, and
astrologically March 11 and September 11 make a direct opposition.

From the occult point of view, the destruction of the "Twin Towers" in New
York in September 11, 2001, may have concluded a "twin operation" with the
March 11 destruction of the Buddhist Statues in Bamian, Afghanistan.

As you know, in New York the theosophical movement was founded, and in New
York the United Nations (the outer seed of a future brotherhood of nations)
is based. The city is a symbol of the Western world.

As to the March 11 and September 11 opposition, we may also take into
consideration that the Madrid train bombings happened precisely in March 11,
2004 (causing some 200 deaths).

These are but a few hints.

There is much to investigate about this, but my main point now is that we
should keep away from any intense hatred against the Islam, or against
Western Society (USA or Europe), or against anything at all.

The Masters of the Wisdom and the Esoteric Philosophy seem to stimulate
universal understanding and unconditional respect, without denying human
failures, contrast and contradictions, whose repression only creates hatred.

Western democracies in general may be facing difficult moments, now. Yet
democracy, or the art of perceiving and managing unity and diversity as a
simultaneous process, is still the great lesson we have to learn, both
inside and outside the theosophical movement.

One of the Mahatmas wrote in the famous Letter 120 (Chronological Edition):

"... discord is the harmony of the Universe".

And Alexander Pope, the English poet of the 18th century, had already thus
explained that aphorism of esoteric wisdom:

"All Nature is but art, unknown to thee
All chance, direction, which thout canst not see;
All discord, harmony not understood;
All partial evil, universal good;
And, spite of pride, in erring reason's spite,
One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right." (6)

So be it. Om, Shanti.

Peace to all beings, Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
