Dear Friends and "STILLPOINTED"



            Re:       Cosmology of Space in Theosophy





It seems to me the UNIVERSAL PURPOSE is included in its presence.  


If so this gives us an extension into virtue, morality and BROTHERHOOD  ?


Have you made a comparison with the  SECRET DOCTRINE  ?  Can we see it ?


It would help us if you' have.






Do some of these have and show these references?

Subject: Cosmology of Space in Theosophy


Recently I've been exploring the `Cosmology of Space' as it relates to 
everyday experience. After some research into the literature only 
one reference to this phenomenon was found: "Dogen's Cosmology of 
Space and the Practice of Self-Fulfillment" by Taigen Dan Leighton. 

http://www.mtsource <>

If you could point to other such references, I would appreciate 
learning more of what has been written on this subject. 

Thanks, Ed
