“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…”

“Only the knowledge of karma can offset it…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 10th September 2013 “If they [i.e. Theosophists] do their whole duty, the progress of materialism, the increase of dangerous self-indulgence, and the tendency towards spiritual suicide can be checked. The theory of vicarious atonement has brought about its inevitable reaction: only the knowledge of karma can offset it. The pendulum has swung from the extreme of blind faith towards the extreme … Continue reading “Only the knowledge of karma can offset it…”

“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…”

“Occult Science has its changeless traditions from pre-historic times…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Wednesday 31st July 2013 “Like the Universe itself, Science is ever becoming, and can never say, “I am that I am.” On the other hand, Occult Science has its changeless traditions from pre-historic times. It may err in particulars; it can never become guilty of a mistake in questions of Universal laws, simply because that Science, justly referred to by philosophy as … Continue reading “Occult Science has its changeless traditions from pre-historic times…”

“There is only Kosmos – The Great Order…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Tuesday 23rd July 2013 “The study of The Secret Doctrine proves unprofitable unless the student sees at his own stage of evolution, in his own life, in the activity of his own complex nature, the unity which is basic from which differentiation springs and on which diversity manifests. Meta-physics is not a subject for consideration by the mind only. Therefore there is … Continue reading “There is only Kosmos – The Great Order…”

“The real incarnating and permanent Spiritual Ego…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Sunday 21st July 2013 “I. Atma, the “Higher Self,” is neither your Spirit nor mine, but like sunlight shines on all. It is the universally diffused “divine principle,” and is inseparable from its one and absolute Meta-Spirit, as the sunbeam is inseparable from sunlight. “II. Buddhi (the spiritual soul) is only its vehicle. Neither each separately, nor the two collectively, are of … Continue reading “The real incarnating and permanent Spiritual Ego…”

“An incorporeal Principle, not to be blasphemously anthropomorphized…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Thursday 18th July 2013 “Polytheism – once man claims the right of divine interference on his behalf – is logical and consistent with the philosophies of the East, all of which, whether Pantheistic or Deistic, proclaim the ONE an infinite abstraction, an absolute Something which utterly transcends the conception of the finite. Surely such a creed is more philosophical than that religion, … Continue reading “An incorporeal Principle, not to be blasphemously anthropomorphized…”

“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.
