BETTER TIMES IN PAST AND FUTURE
Jan 07, 2007 10:51 AM
We live in a globalized society where commercial exploitation of the
lower desires in human nature expand at the same rhythm as the
ethical, social and environmental degradation.
There were other and happier times in non-Christian cultures, as
"With the Brahmins, who have never invested with an 'original Sin'
element the natural procreative functions of mankind, it is a
religious duty to have a son. A Brahmin, in days of old, having
accomplished his mission of human creator, retired to the jungle and
passed the rest of his days in religious meditations. He had
accomplished his duty to nature as mortal man and its co-worker, and
henceforth gave all his thoughts to the spiritual immortal portion
in himself, regarding the terrestrial as a mere illusion, an
evanescent dream -- which it is. ("The Secret Doctrine", by Helena
Blavatsky, vol.I, p. 383, The Theosophy Co. Edition.)
The present trend to dissolution and decay will be defeated, as HPB
wrote elsewhere, "before the end of 21st century".
