“Hidden Truth in Ancient Monuments and Today”

“Hidden Truth in Ancient Monuments and Today”

  “Far sighted were the initiates of antiquity. They realized that nations come and go, that empires rise and fall, and that golden ages of art, science, and idealism are succeeded by the dark ages of superstition. “With the needs of posterity foremost in mind, the sages of old went to inconceivable extremes to make certain that [...]

First Sunrise of the Year

First Sunrise of the Year

Hence he who would fathom the depths of philosophical thought must familiarize himself with the teachings f those initiated priests. … The [...]

Thought Currents and Dealing With Them

Thought Currents and Dealing With Them

  “We need to be careful of what we think and talk. Because thought runs in currents as real as those of air and water. Of what we think and talk we attract to us like a current of thought. This acts on mind or body for good or ill. “If thought was visible to the physical eye we should see its currents flowing to and from people. [...]

“Renovate Yourself With Spiritual Light”

“Renovate Yourself With Spiritual Light”

    “One day people will be traveling without ships, trains or planes. They will have a new type of body, shaped and structured differently.
