“Passing through and around us as if through empty space…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Sunday 7th July 2013 “From Gods to men, from Worlds to atoms, from a star to a rush-light, from the Sun to the vital heat of the meanest organic being — the world of Form and Existence is an immense chain, whose links are all connected. The law of Analogy is the first key to the world-problem, and these links have to … Continue reading “Passing through and around us as if through empty space…”

“The moral teaching of the Bhagavad Gita…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Saturday 6th July 2013 “As regards the moral teaching of the Bhagavad-Gita, it is often asserted by those who do not appreciate the benefits of occult study, that, if everybody pursued this course, the world would come to a standstill; and, therefore, that this teaching can only be useful to the few, and not to ordinary people. This is not so. It … Continue reading “The moral teaching of the Bhagavad Gita…”

“There are not many spirits but solely one spirit…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Friday 5th July 2013 “Spirit is universal, indivisible, and common to all. In other words, there are not many spirits, one for each man, but solely one spirit which shines upon all men alike, finding as many souls – roughly speaking – as there are beings in the world. In man the spirit has a more complete instrument or assemblage of tools … Continue reading “There are not many spirits but solely one spirit…”

“The reincarnation of the same spiritual individuality in a long series of personalities…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Thursday 4th July 2013 “Compare this blind faith with the philosophical belief, based on every reasonable evidence and life-experience, in Karma-Nemesis, or the Law of Retribution. This Law – whether Conscious or Unconscious – predestines nothing and no one. It exists from and in Eternity, truly, for it is ETERNITY itself; and as such, since no act can be co-equal with eternity, … Continue reading “The reincarnation of the same spiritual individuality in a long series of personalities…”

“The doctrine of the unreality of this Universe…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Wednesday 3rd July 2013 “Maya is the perceptive faculty of every Ego which considers itself a Unit separate from, and independent of, the One infinite and eternal SAT, or “be-ness.” Maya is explained in exoteric philosophy and the Puranas, as the personified active Will of the creative God – the latter being but a personified Maya himself – a passing deception of … Continue reading “The doctrine of the unreality of this Universe…”

“The prime purpose of H.P.B.’s mission…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 2nd July 2013 “H.P.B. endeavours to protect the mind of the individual and the race against the recrudescence of lower psychism by giving “philosophical deduction instead of unverifiable hypothesis, scientific analysis and demonstration instead of undiscriminating faith” (Isis, II. 636). The Secret Doctrine goes further. Its structure and the method of presentation bring about an inner mental change, which makes the … Continue reading “The prime purpose of H.P.B.’s mission…”

“The supreme energy resides in the Buddhi…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Monday 1st July 2013 “You know our motto, and that its practical application has erased the word “impossible” from the occultist’s vocabulary. If he wearies not of trying, he may discover that most noble of all facts, his true SELF. But he will have to penetrate many strata before he comes to It. And to begin with let him rid himself of … Continue reading “The supreme energy resides in the Buddhi…”

“The mystery of the moon…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Sunday 30th June 2013 “Modern Theosophy, coming on the field as the uniter of all religions by explaining the symbols and traditions of each, is not exempt from the mystery of the moon. H.P. Blavatsky is our sole originator of a theory regarding the satellite which one could not have invented with the most wonderful imagination. She says her teachers told her, … Continue reading “The mystery of the moon…”

“Man must save himself…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Saturday 29th June 2013 “There is no doubt that the principles enunciated by Jesus of Nazareth would make the world a better and a happier one, but who among all the people follows them in his daily life or in his dealings with his fellow-men; we profess “belief” in those principles and promulgated ethics and daily and hourly contravene them; of what … Continue reading “Man must save himself…”

“Those who believe in Karma have to believe in destiny…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Friday 28th June 2013 “Yes; “our destiny is written in the stars!” Only, the closer the union between the mortal reflection MAN and his celestial PROTOTYPE, the less dangerous the external conditions and subsequent reincarnations – which neither Buddhas nor Christs can escape. This is not superstition, least of all is it Fatalism. The latter implies a blind course of some still … Continue reading “Those who believe in Karma have to believe in destiny…”
