I'm not to sure were to start off, but i'll try. I am hoping that someone
may be able to talk with me about their experiences with mysticism in its
various facets, and how they have been accepted and worked with. By this I mean
have you known explicitly or implicitly at the time that it was an experience
with a power?
Was this at first believed?
I have always trusted my perceptions and as such, they have refined through
repeated usage. Since beliefs mold perceptions, I subject my belief system to
an occasional check and/or upgrade. So this is why I can tell you that almost
always, I believed it right away.
How has this worked to change or advance your beliefs? Does theosophy
relate with your life on a day to day basis. I am more specifically interested in
theosophy and its relation to Buddhism. As well I'd like some input on the
relation of: theosophy, pantheism, agnosticism, and solipsism.
Theosophists, I found, approach much of what I am interested in in much the
same way that I approach them and this has led me to believe that at its core,
theosophy is motivated by some of the same experiences. This is not to say
that I find all musings by theosophists to fall into this category but enough
that when I hear that someone considers themselves a theosophist, I am often
prone to taking keen interest in the person's views.
