Re: Visualizing Masters, Judge's Diary, Grace
Thanks to Daniel for the information - source
of quote BCW XII, p. 696. I still think it is a wrong
practice, or not explained sufficiently, and dangerous.
If it didn't "just slip by Judge," I think Judge is wrong.
Is a facsimile of the original instruction online? I
don't like the idea of visualizing in general. When
we are in a world of illusion, why create more illusion?
'Also think it is a big mistake to put too much weight
on Judge's or anybody's personal diary. Who knows
what anything might mean, they are just notes to
oneself, or keys of things to think about.
John's article - no. 26 in Word Puzzles on
Wisdomworld - is a good one. Psychology as
"the science of the soul" - exactly. One BIG thing
that psychologists will never use and thus have
only half of the picture, is the fact of external
influences on the mind such as elementals, etc.
To be effected, two factors are involved - inner
complex and tendency - Plus the effects of
outside entities, unself-conscious as elementals
usually, and with different degrees of consciousness.
Most psychology is just political and economic
and social - "get the work-machine going again -
none of this inner values and phenomenom trash.
Make a gregarious and economically productive
machine that causes no social waves - use pills
to do it if necessary, and that's all there is to it. "
Your social worker psychologist is generally as
deep as a mud puddle and equates Political
Correctness with psychological health. When
I was in a hospital for a couple of weeks 5 years
ago (broken bones, etc.), one tried to keep me
from being released because I owned guns and
she said I was "homicidal." One conselor I knew
in the 80's said that part of her training was that
all the trainees had to sit around in a circle
performing self-abuse - to break down "insincerity"
and make them "open" to each other. (told to me
second-hand, but knew the person.) Its a dangerous
mad-house, where many are incarcerated and
drug-imprisoned for healthy reactions to society
and unpopular opinions. Doctors have police-powers
for one's unpopular viewpoints. Murders, drug-
lobotomies and maiming take place on a regular
basis. Its general policy on "troublesome" people,
and there are thousands of nurses, Drs., counselors,
police,and anybody unbalanced, criminal in nature,
and with agendas or craziness, who want to screw
somebody up for personal reasons, - supervised
by no one. ---- I think Jung was a real psychologist,
even tho he didn't understand or like Theosophy.
Grace Knoche got a lot of good literature
published and wasn't after material profit, as one
can see from the low cost of TPH's books and that
they put them freely online. But.... They did edit
some of Purucker's writings (Fundamentals of the
Esoteric Philosophy, for one), The Encyclopedic
Theosophical Glossary was ready for publication
about 1942, and never published (Emmett Small
and others were going to publish it, but Grace and
Long personally walked in an stole their copy from
the offices, with wheel-chaired Karen Heck guarding it
- I have a letter from Small on this). Three cheers for
the Encyclopedic Glossary being on line now, but it
too has been edited, and not merely on science material.
(I compared some previous publication in Theosophical
Forum, with current entry.) .....All 50 years ago - but the
majority of Point Loma members of value (I think) got
KICKED OUT of Grace's guru Long's society. Long said
that he was protecting them from doing more harm to
themselves and creating further bad karma (for objecting
to Him, I take it.) Getting Kicked out killed Henry Edge.
I don't think there are too many people in the Society
anymore, and not the culprits involved in all this previous
mess. On the former antipathy between ULT and Point
Loma, Endersby (Theosophical Notes) was a staff writer
for ULT's Theosophy magazine in the 20s, 30s, and
40s(?), and he was one former ULT member who
developed a rather high opinion of Purucker, and was
friends with many former Point Loma members.
