“The Kabalah can never divulge the whole truth…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Monday 23rd December 2013 “Nor do the modern Kabalists seem to be aware of the fact, that the Kabalah as it now stands, with its more than revised texts, its additions made to apply to the New as much as to the Old Testament, its numerical language recomposed so as to apply to both, and its crafty veiling, is no longer able … Continue reading “The Kabalah can never divulge the whole truth…”

“The first law of the Sacred Science…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Thursday 26th September 2013 “Once Theosophy and its principles are known, it will be demonstrated that our philosophy is not only a “close relative of modern science,” but its forbear, though greatly transcending it in logic; and that its “metaphysics” is vaster, more beautiful and more powerful than any emanating from a dogmatic cult. It is the metaphysics of Nature in her … Continue reading “The first law of the Sacred Science…”

“Such an avalanche of crude impurities and fables…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 24th September 2013 “Is the language of the Old Testament more pure or moral than the books of the Brahmans? Or any fables of the heathen world more blasphemous and ridiculous than Jehovah’s interview with Moses (Exodus xxxiii. 23)?

“All in Nature is an aspect of the One Element…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 17th September 2013 “There is one error which is commonly made, than which there can be no greater error in the views of an occultist.

“The Root from which proceeds all manifestation…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Saturday 14th September 2013 “Parabrahm (the One Reality, the Absolute) is the field of Absolute Consciousness, i.e., that Essence which is out of all relation to conditioned existence, and of which conscious existence is a conditioned symbol. But once that we pass in thought from this (to us) Absolute Negation, duality supervenes in the contrast of Spirit (or consciousness) and Matter, Subject … Continue reading “The Root from which proceeds all manifestation…”

“Man is really a thinker and made of thought…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Wednesday 11th September 2013 “This coming into life over and over again cannot be avoided by the ordinary man because Lower Manas is still bound by Desire, which is the preponderating principle at the present period. Being so influenced by Desire Manas is continually deluded while in the body, and being thus deluded is unable to prevent the action upon it of … Continue reading “Man is really a thinker and made of thought…”

“The Golden Rule was not original with Jesus…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Friday 6th September 2013 “In what particular does the jealous, wrathful, revengeful God of Israel resemble the unknown deity, the God of mercy preached by Jesus; – his Father who is in Heaven, and the Father of all humanity? This Father alone is the God of spirit and purity, and, to compare Him with the subordinate and capricious Sinaitic Deity is an … Continue reading “The Golden Rule was not original with Jesus…”

“It is only then that the Union with the Higher Self can take place…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 3rd September 2013 “The “Master” in the Sanctuary of our souls is “the Higher Self” – the divine spirit whose consciousness is based upon and derived solely (at any rate during the mortal life of the man in whom it is captive) from the Mind, which we have agreed to call the Human Soul (the “Spiritual Soul” being the vehicle of … Continue reading “It is only then that the Union with the Higher Self can take place…”

“The Kabbalah was entirely lost in the thirteenth century…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Monday 2nd September 2013 “The Chaldean Kabbalah, moreover, the Book of Numbers, agrees perfectly with the eastern arrangement, and disagrees with the present orthodox Kabbalah in its diagrams. … Now, look here: I had a rabbi who had the real Book of Numbers – and there is another; I have only seen two in my life, and I don’t think there exist … Continue reading “The Kabbalah was entirely lost in the thirteenth century…”

“The apes were produced by man himself…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Sunday 1st September 2013 “The burning question of the anthropoid apes as related to man is settled by the Masters of Wisdom, who say that instead of those being our progenitors they were produced by man himself. In one of the early periods of the globe the men of that time begot from large females of the animal kingdom the anthropoids, and … Continue reading “The apes were produced by man himself…”
