Immortality is of several kinds Theosophy teaches.
1. There is the all-enveloping SPIRIT -- the IDEAL basis. Nothing in
the Universe escapes this enveloping ONENESS and UNITY. In effect it
is the basis for Universal Brotherhood.
2. Each individual being has for its base an immortal "ray" or if you
desire to call it so --a "portion" of that SPIRIT -- as a resident
inside it. Hence it is called in THEOSOPHY a MONAD. Actually the
Monad is a duality as it is both SPIRIT and primordial matter
We hold in THEOSOPHY, that every being from "atom" to Universe" shares
in each other, and are "brothers in fact" as well as in "spirit."
3. Every "Personality" or "form" is built up of millions of these
individual Monads. And to organize them one of the aspects of the
"personality" serves as a matrix -- a lattice work of electro-magnetic
force on which atoms, molecules, cells etc.. arrange themselves in
patterns to which intelligence and through which a conjoined
"intelligent and conscious life" can reside and manifest. This gives
every human his or her free and independent MIND.
True, I claim no authority, and only suggest you study Theosophy
thoroughly before you raise criticism or questions.
I would disagree in calling Theosophy a "belief system." Its
presentation belies that.
But I see you find need to go to the barnyard for your expletives.

Hi. To begin, sorry the previous message was supposed to be sent to
Theosophy Study List. In any case, in my very first message on here I
complained about you posting my material on other lists, AND YOU ARE
DOING IT. It would not be so bad if you posted the whole message, but
not. You do not care and this is discouraging. In any case, see below.

WRY: Then how come you have not answered or acknowledged my one
you about immortality so that we can have an enquiry. Even if it is

WRY: I think YOU may.

WRY: You are no authority on this subject. You say they do. I say they
not. It is a belief system and to subscribe to it involves taking
belief. Certain kinds and qualities of true discrimination cannot be
developed in this way. It is contrary to their development. Plus you
need to know this. It is meaningless, distortional and will keep you
discovering what you really do need to no in order to be in a real
brotherhood and to help establish that for others.

WRY: This is bull-crap and drivel. It is NOT the higest level.

like this? You are blatheriong nothiong about nothing.

WRY: More bland meaniongless blather and pouring from the empty into
void. This is not your best hour, though I have seen you timidly begin
approach real enquiry on a very few occasions. At this point, just

WRY: Ancient people did not think and talk like you do. They were more
to verify. The way you are thinking and talking is an example of why
lost their "knowledge" which you erroneously consider to be a material
in stone and this sets you in stone.

WRY: This is fantasy. You are BELIEVING this. Re the material below,
reply to this later. You seem to have NO SENSE OF PROPORTION.
there are six or even more long messages from you in one day, not to
your double emails when you post the same material on two lists. You
have no grasp or even an elementary understanding of how human beings
assimilate material. You really do not understand. You learn too slow.
do not catch on to the obvious. It is sad. Do you not care about other
people and, with love in your heart, want learning to flower for us
This is sad. Wry
