“Hubris or Not Hubris, That is Another Good Question”

“Hubris or Not Hubris, That is Another Good Question”

    “So, with Dante, the first terrace of the Mount of Purgatory is devoted to the cleansing of pride and the production of humility. … “The first thing that the self observes, when it turns back upon itself in that awful moment of lucidity … is the horrible contrast between its clouded contours and the pure sharp [...]

“Spiritual Quest: a Never Ending Journey”

“Spiritual Quest: a Never Ending Journey”

    “Here then stands the newly awakened self: aware, for the first time, of reality, responding to that reality by deep movements of love and of awe. She sees herself, however, not merely by the thrust into a new world, but set at the beginning of a new road. Activity is now to be her watchword, pilgrimage the business of her [...]

“Limitations of Matter and Unlimited Spirit”

“Limitations of Matter and Unlimited Spirit”

    “According to the secret doctrine, man, through the gradual refinement of his vehicle and the ever-increasing sensitiveness resulting from that refinement, is gradually overcoming the limitations of matter and is disentangling himself from his mortal coil. When humanity has completed its physical evolution, the empty shell [...]

“Transformed Student and the Path Ahead”

“Transformed Student and the Path Ahead”

    “Ordinarily unconscious of his higher life, the esoteric student renders himself conscious of it, and thereby his whole life becomes transformed. As long as the soul remains unseeing in the higher sense it is guided by superior cosmic beings. And just as the life of a person born blind is changed, through a successful [...]

“Thought Strength for Physical and Spiritual Success”

“Thought Strength for Physical and Spiritual Success”

    “Your thought is your real strength. When you lift a weight, you put your thought on the muscle that lifts. The heavier the weight, the more of your thought do you put on it. If, in so lifting, a part of your thoughts is turned in some other directions, if someone talks to you, if somethings frightens or annoys you, a part [...]

“Personal Redemption, Myths and Allegory”

“Personal Redemption, Myths and Allegory”

    “Long periods of probation were imposed, so that he knowledge of how to become as the gods might remain the sole possession of the worthy. Lest that knowledge be lost, however, it was concealed in allegories and myths which were meaningless to the profane but self-evident to those acquainted with that theory of personal [...]

“Gibran on False Prophets and Truth”

“Gibran on False Prophets and Truth”

    “Yesterday we honored false prophets and sorcerers. But today Time has changed, and lo, it has changed us too. We can now stare at the face of the sun and listen to the songs of the sea, and nothing can shake us except a cyclone. “Yesterday we tore down the temples of our souls and from their debris we built tombs for [...]

“Teaching, Learning and Sharing Spiritual Knowledge”

“Teaching, Learning and Sharing Spiritual Knowledge”

    “A wise man, whether teaching or learning, only wishes to learn or teach those things which are useful. He who merely has the appearance of wisdom, whether asking or answering questions, only deals with relatively trivial things. “A person who through the grace of God partakes of divine blessings is under an obligation [...]

“Two Roads Through Life: Physical and Spiritual”

“Two Roads Through Life: Physical and Spiritual”

    “Brothers in belief, there are two roads through life, the Road of Good and the Road of Evil; they are not clearly defined roads and often run side by side and sometimes cross each other. Those who travel without a guide or in darkness often mistake one road for the other. We are those who have chosen to walk in light, in [...]

“Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon”

“Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon”

    “Beloved reader, this is no jesting matter; he that accounteth it so, hath not tried it, neither hath he yet passed the Judgment; but his conscience is still asleep; and though it should be deferred to his latter days, which is very dangerous, yet he must pass through the Judgment or fiery trial. Happy is he that passeth [...]
