“Transmute into Good: Man, Earth, Moon and Sun”

“Transmute into Good: Man, Earth, Moon and Sun”

    “It was taught in Manichism that from our age onward the souls of men would begin to transmute into good the evil which will manifest in full force in the sixth epoch. In other words: human souls must be strong enough to bring good out of evil by a process of spiritual alchemy. “When the Earth begins to recapitulate the [...]

“Thought Power and Making it Work for You”

“Thought Power and Making it Work for You”

    “If a man thinks murder, he actually puts out an element of murder in the air. He sends from him a plan of murder as real as if drawn on paper; its thought is absorbed by others; so is this element and unseen plan of murder absorbed by other minds; it inclines them toward violence if not murder. If a person is ever thinking [...]

“Higher Perception and Awakening It”

“Higher Perception and Awakening It”

      “This higher perceptive faculty can prove a blessing only if the opened soul-senses are in perfect order, just as the ordinary senses can only be used for a true observation of the world if their equipment is regular and normal. Now man himself forms these higher senses through the exercises indicated by spiritual [...]

“Ultimate Consciousness and Becoming One with It”

“Ultimate Consciousness and Becoming One with It”

    “The ‘Absolute Consciousness,’ they tell us, ‘behind’ phenomena, which is only termed unconsciousness in the absence of any element of personality, transcends human conception.

“Sun of Righteousness and the Light of God”

“Sun of Righteousness and the Light of God”

    “God, it is said, is the Sun of Righteousness (cf. Mat. 4:2), and the rays of His supernal goodness shine down on all men alike.

“Longing After Light in the Land of Darkness”

“Longing After Light in the Land of Darkness”

    “For by the great Longing of the Darkness after the Light and Virtue of God, this world has been generated out of the Darkness, where the holy Virtue of God beheld itself  in the Darkness, and therefore this great Desiring and Longing after the Divine Virtue continues in the Spirit of the Sun, Stars, and Elements, and in [...]

“Sacred Music and Light of the Spiritual Spheres”

“Sacred Music and Light of the Spiritual Spheres”

    “How often have you seen your brother in a state of ecstasy, which he cannot describe? It is a state beginning in quiet bliss, flowing outward in bright radiance from an inner light, which can even illuminate the material darkness about him. He hears the music of the sacred spheres and sees the throbbing pulsations of life [...]

“Cosmic Order and the Universe”

“Cosmic Order and the Universe”

“But the life in the Cosmos, the life which carries the leading principle of the universe, still needs elucidation; does it operate without calculation, without searching into what ought to be done? “Yes: for what must be stands shaped before the Cosmos, and is ordered without any setting in order; the ordering things are merely the things [...]

“Fifth Epoch of Materialism and Sixth Epoch of Spirit”

“Fifth Epoch of Materialism and Sixth Epoch of Spirit”

    “The descent into materialism was necessary in order that the fifth epoch might fulfill its mission It was essential that astral and spiritual clairvoyance should grow dim in order that the intellect might develop by  precise, minute and mathematical observation of the physical world. Physical science must be supplemented [...]

“Kabbalistic View of Oral and Written Spiritual Law”

“Kabbalistic View of Oral and Written Spiritual Law”

    “A traditional Kabbalistic view is that although the creation is in a damaged and imperfect state the Kabbalist, by virtue of his or her state of consciousness, can bring about a real healing. … When Moses first received the written law he also received certain laws orally. These were not written down but only ever [...]
