The Spirit of Deception
Jan 02, 2007 12:13 PM
In the lines below, H. P. Blavatsky invites us to unite and defend each other against the spirit of deception.
Take a look:
"Like the spectrum in optics, giving multicoloured and various rays, which are yet caused by one and the same sun, so theologies and sacerdotal systems are many. But the Universal religion can only be one, if we accept the real, primitive meaning of the root of that word. We, Theosophists, so accept it; and therefore say, "We are all brothers by the laws of Nature, of birth, and death, as also by the laws of our utter helplessness from birth to death in this world of sorrow and deceptive illusions. Let us, then, love, help, and mutually defend each other against this spirit of deception; and while holding to that which each of us accepts as his ideal of truth and reality i.e., to the religion which suits each of us best let us unite ourselves to form a practical nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood of Humanity WITHOUT DISTINCTION OF RACE, CREED, OR COLOUR. —H. P. Blavatsky (Lucifer, April 1888)
We are invited to gather together against the spirit of deception but, as we know, deception is often disguised under the appearance of good manners.
So brotherhood needs sincerity as the process of breathing needs air. Deceptive psychological games asfixiate the living liberty of thought and try to turn it into a dead game of masks.
Theos-talk is a living laboratory for us all to observe the alchemical process of burning falsehoods in the oxygen of truth and light.
