Are we not seeking the ROOT of CULTURE ?
Variants are many as both the ISIS UNVEILED and SECRET DOCTRINE
demonstrate. However, once seen and grasped as older "steps along the Path,
those are time-wasters.
Once we have attained to the BASIS, then what have we to do with the many
Those many polemics are for the lower mind. We seek, do we not the
verities ensconced in the HIGHER ND -- BUDDHI MANAS.
Is there room for questioning: Yes. Is there room for argument Yes. But
there's also the possibility of acquiring UNIVERSAL and IMPERSONAL truths
Now putting these 2 into the pans of a balance which outweighs the other?
Subject: Re: Theos-World Reading Thought Forms
Dal-Thanks for presenting this concern .
I think, for most people, reading their own thoughts with
understanding and consistancy, provides enough difficulty. Even
though one or another individual may say that they either wish to or
have read anothers thoughts, they are usually wishing for powers, and
not for any helpful motive, but just for unhealthy curiosity. To this
extent I feel your understanding of HPB about these things is correct.
However, I think it is true, in line with what HPB says in the 10
items of Oriental Pyschology, that different cultures have arrived at
different "magics", simply by natural, or unnatural, involvement with
particular groups of elementals, so that they have an easy assistance
from their surrounding elemental environment in some kinds of
divination. Therefore, some folks will have an extrasensory ability
in some areas, but mostly just enough to wet their appetites for
more. This is because, regardless of our sympathys with Science and
cutural materialism, we either want to go to someone who, seemingly
out of thin air, can know something we don't, or divine other's
intentions ourselves. And, I feel that this happens precisely because
of the control material Science tries to through over us in regards
to these subjects, so inwardly we want that awareness we
subconsciously know is there, whether Science says it is foolishness
It would be interesting to live in a culture which supports
theosophical interest in what we are discussing, to see if such a
culture would learn a moral respect for the use of such powers, than
the nearly immoral disrespect for them, which I feel indentures
