Thanks for the kind words. We all go through the sleep and death cycles, but unconsciously. Using my interpretation of Blavatsky’s model as a practical map of the inner territory, we can consciously go through the cycles that I outlined, consciously. The objective here is to allow us to consciously undergo these normally-unconscious cycles. The higher cycles require a good deal of meditative expertise, but are there for those who can use them. 

Astral traveling, or what is today called Pathworking, is very popular today, and I was trying to show that Blavatsky’s model can also be pathworked. Most Theosophists will fear to TRY (Quest, for example, not only wouldn’t publish it, but they refused to even read it for consideration), but I really didn’t write the essay for Theosophists anyway. My goal is to make Theosophy practical and more acceptable to more people. Only time will tell if I am successful.

When we learn about reincarnation, it remains a theory, or perhaps an intuitive feeling that we have. But when we use meditative pathworking, we can consciously go through the death and rebirth process. At first this will likely be pure imagination, but imagination itself is an expression of divine creativity, and when done properly over time, one will eventually actually be able to undergo the death, after-death, pre-birth, and birth experiences and feel exactly what happens. This helps eliminate fear (I find birth to be much more fearful than death) as well as ignorance, and will allow us to consciously control our rebirth. Understanding the reincarnation cycle also helps us to develop compassion for others who do not understand what is happening.

<<<<Thank you Jerry for your verry interresting mail, that at least for me, completes the picture much more. I asked this question becouse I have read your essay on Pathworking the Gupta Vidya Universe Model. (anybody can make a free download by the way on the bottom page of, it is really like a book, and it turns its own pages !)
I have actually started to experriment with these "pathway's within HPB's structure, and like to ask Jerry if you could explain more about particularly the sleep cycle,the death cycle, the causal cycle, and the initiation cycle,as it is described in your on-line booklet, from a practical experiental viewpoint, also in connection to 
your "My views" and your "Reg. to Steve"
Thank You,
