Re: Theos-World THEOSOPHY - Is it possible?
May 30, 2006 10:17 PM
I don't think you have really understood theosophy and why it was given out
when it was. Judging from your commentaries, I doubt that you have even
studied any of the inner (occult) truths hidden in the secret Doctrine -- for
"intuitive students" to dig out for themselves. If you had, you could never say
any of the things you did about Blavatsky, the Secret Doctrine, or the
fundamental theosophy it teaches. So, from my point of view, it's apparent that
everything you did say is based solely on ignorance of those truths. But then,
it's understandable, since all newbees think they know enough to make judgments
about things they know very little of. :-)
So, all you need to quaff your "thirst for more and more" is just to dig a
little deeper -- which might (if you can handle it) take several years of
serious study of all the Secret Doctrine's inner depths along with all its
references to the ancient wisdom -- that hasn't changed one bit in more than 5,000
years. All you need is your own intuition awakened through a proper practice of
Rajah Yoga meditation.
But, then, like most people today, you might want it all spoon fed to you.
But that isn't going to happen... Since theosophy is only for those willing to
study it through "their own self devised and self determined efforts." The
goal, of course, being; to attain individual "'self realization' so as to be
better able to help and teach others."
For one thing, theosophy has nothing to say about the world we experience
outside of ourselves. And this includes all the miseries of our material world
brought on by ignorance of the fundamental principles and of the inner truths
of Cosmogenesis and its metaphysics and evolution, along with the truths of
reincarnation and karma.
The theosophical teachings are timeless, and have never been concerned with
the state of the world during this period of Kali Yuga that has to inevitably
run it's course... But, is concerned only with our inner spiritual life and
our becoming a "nuclius of universal brotherhood."
What has that to do with crop circles, UFO's, and other world changes that
are purely material phenomena that are constantly changing and have no real
relationship to the infinite inner life theosophy teaches us about (with the help
of the Voice of the Silence, The Bhagavad Gita, and Patanjali's Yoga
Aphorisms)? What more of a "revelation" do we want or need to become a true
As for enlarging theosophy, how can a knowledge of "Portals" or the "Mayan
calendar" have anything to do with its fundamental teachings? Anything one
needs to know about those other things (we call them "side issues") are well
covered in many other "Mystery Schools" that can easily be found on the Internet.
But, why waste your time, when everything taught by those other
"revelations" are all in the Secret doctrine, its references, and other writings of HPB,
WQJ and some of their direct students like Perucker, Farthing, etc. -- whom I
suggest you also study before thinking you know anything about true theosophy.
The real "duty" of theosophists isn't in "enlarging it's scope" -- but in
practicing its teachings of altruism and universal brotherhood, and spread
broadcasting it to the outer world by the example of our own individual and group
actions. Anything else is just adding onto the mistakes and distortions given
to it by the later pseudo theosophists who came after Blavatsky -- from Annie
Besant, through Charles Leadbeater, to Alice Bailey... All of whom tried to
turn it into another religion no better than all those that already exists and
that have, if not led, not been able to prevent the world from following its
present materialistic path to near destruction (which, incidentally, is
absolutely necessary before the phoenix of a truer theosophical world can rise out of
What makes you think that adding or enlarging theosophy, and turning it into
a new religion with new revelations (that only a Master can give) can do any
better? Besides, those revelations can only add to and further clarify what
is already hidden under the intentionally "blinded" dead letter gloss of the
Secret doctrine. Better now to prepare ourselves with what is already
available so as to be able to assist the new 6th sub-racers coming in this Aquarian
age -- so they don't get caught up in the materialism of the past Millennium.
The reason HPB said the SD was only "fragments of the Secret doctrine", was
that the Masters intentionally (and rightly so) held back the bulk of the
occult teachings (such as those related to the "correlation of forces" and so
called "magic") that would give terrible power to the majority of this world
steeped in untrammeled greed and selfishness -- that no amount of spiritual teaching
could change. In fact all the "new spiritual movements" have added nothing
to the teachings of theosophy -- except, perhaps, to distort them beyond all
recognition. Also, any sort of psychic teachings for purposes of attaining
individual "powers" have nothing to do with theosophy -- which teaches only a
Rajah-Jnana yoga leading to enlightenment or self realization. How anyone
could call that "obsolete" is beyond all comprehension. Especially coming from a
Brazilian -- where the Aquarian age children have been appearing since the
beginning of the new theosophical cycle in the last quarter of the 20th century.
Since true theosophy, no matter when it originates, has no "dogma" (as it is
not and could never be an "organized religion") -- any additions to its
fundamental teachings by ignorant students, or those not yet initiated by a Master,
could only make things worse for the world and the coming "indigo" children.
Therefore, the best advice I can give you, would be to seriously study
theosophy and its ageless wisdom from its original sources -- before even thinking
of changing it into another hierarchical organizational entity concerned only
with the state or conditions of the present world around us. Anyone who wants
to know about any of that can easily find it on Google -- without trying to
make theosophy into something it was never intended by the Masters to become.
Incidentally (for those ready and perceptive enough to see it) the Masters
are still here... And if they wanted to add some new teaching to bring theosophy
up to date in the 21st century, they would give it out to a chosen messenger
-- like they've already done several times in this new cycle of the
theosophical movement since 1975. So, there already are "new theosophical teachings"
that go beyond the basic outline in the secret Doctrine -- without in any way
making those fundamental teachings less valuable or obsolete.
Go look, and you'll find.
