My views are:
Now try to consider the below villains who use their powers for a not so wise and compassionate end...
Try this one. Interesting is it not?:
Rapidly Going under Hypnosis
Grant Boddington Master Stage Hypnotist
Street Hypnosis - Invisibilty - Amit Badiani
Event Hypnotist Bruce James - Comedy Stage Hypnotist
Dogmatism is still reigning all over the Christinized countries as a thick cloud.
There is no reason to think that this is not a fact. The politiicans, and various religious leaders and the medias outlets are a daily exmaples on this. And the Middle Eastern countries are equally hampered by their dogmatisms. And parts of the Eastern countries also have their dogmatic problems. People are afraid on this planet.- There are relly afraid! - And because they are afraid they need a tribe to belong to or something similar like a church or social "religious" group, so that they feel secure and comfortable. And that is well and good provided it is helping them. But if it is a curse for them and filled with dogmas it is no good. Not at all.
The theosophical stance on hypnosis has been given by H. P. Blavatsky and others...
H. P. Blavatsky on hypnotism
H. P. Blavatsky on OCCULTISM VERSUS THE OCCULT ARTS
"The Voodoos and the Dugpas eat, drink and are merry over hecatombs of victims of their infernal arts. And so do the amiable gentlemen vivisectionists and the diploma-ed "Hypnotizers" of the Faculties of Medicine; the only difference between the two classes being that the Voodoos and Dugpas are conscious, and the Charcot-Richet crew unconscious, Sorcerers. Thus, since both have to reap the fruits of their labours and achievements in the black art, the Western practitioners should not have the punishment and reputation without the profits and enjoyments they may get therefrom. For we say it again, hypnotism and vivisection as practised in such schools, are Sorcery pure and simple, minus a knowledge that the Voodoos and Dugpas enjoy, and which no Charcot-Richet can procure for himself in fifty years of hard study and experimental observation. Let then those who will dabble in magic, whether they understand its nature or not, but who find the rules imposed upon students too hard, and who, therefore, lay Atma-Vidya or Occultism aside-go without it. Let them become magicians by all means, even though they do become Voodoos and Dugpas for the next ten incarnations.
But the interest of our readers will probably centre on those who are invincibly attracted towards the "Occult," yet who neither realise the true nature of what they aspire towards, nor have they become passion-proof, far less truly unselfish."
What are you views?
Would you like to meet these guys in the street or at a the local theosophical gathering? Or even as a proclaimed theosophical teacher?
