“Explore the Extraordinary, Explore the Spiritual”

“Explore the Extraordinary, Explore the Spiritual”

      “All of us spend so much of our time in a world of the mundane and minutia, bogged down in the everyday grind, isolated and disconnected in our closeted lives, that we lose sight of the breathtaking extraordinariness of our existence. So step out from the ordinary … and get used to the extraordinary. “Reach [...]

“Hospitality: an Overlooked Virtue in a Materialistic World”

“Hospitality: an Overlooked Virtue in a Materialistic World”

    “When we receive visits from our brethren, we should not consider this an irksome interruption of our stillness, lest we cut ourselves off from the law of love. Now should we receive them as if we are doing them a favor, but rather as if it is we ourselves who are receiving a favor; and because we are indebted to them, we [...]

“Phenomenal World and How to Experience it”

“Phenomenal World and How to Experience it”

    “If a man had only one sense he would obtain but a one sense idea of the outside world. If another sense is added his knowledge is doubled, and so on. The best proof of the relation between increased sense perception and development is had in the study of the evolution of animal forms. In the early stages of life the [...]

“Philosophers and Why We Need Them”

“Philosophers and Why We Need Them”

  “The reason philosophers have trouble agreeing, then, is partly because that is the nature of the subject (philosophers deal in questions that people in general don’t agree upon) and partly because philosophers go about their business by challenging assumptions and concepts. … “Despite the inherent difficulty of philosophy, its [...]

“Spiritual Vocation and Spiritual Duties”

“Spiritual Vocation and Spiritual Duties”

    “So here is your vocation set out: a vocation so various in its opportunities, that you can hardly fail to find something to do. It is your business to actualize within the world of time and space—perhaps by great endeavors in the field of heroic action, perhaps only by small ones, … that holy creative energy, which [...]

“God’s Image and the Eyes of the Righteous”

“God’s Image and the Eyes of the Righteous”

    “The eyes of the Righteous shall see God’s Image and hear His Word. He shall no more be hidden from them and his Light shall not be revoked by the Darkness. He shall dwell with men on earth in the enlightened Words of Light ordained to be fulfilled by His Image as a perpetual lamp lit in the Sun of His Righteousness—as [...]

“Heliotherapy” by Paul Young

“Heliotherapy” by Paul Young

    “I will prefix this article with a paragraph quoted from Marcus Julian Felicetti: ‘Atapa Snana is the yogic phrase for the healing science of Sun bathing. We live in a modern world that is bombarded with paranoid messages about how dangerous the Sun is. We should remember that the ancient yogis and many other cultures [...]

“Mystics: Artists and Healers of Life”

“Mystics: Artists and Healers of Life”

    “The mystics are artists; and the stuff in which they work is most often human life. They want to heal the disharmony between the actual and the real: and since, in the white-hot radiance of that faith, hope, and charity which burns in them, they discern such a reconciliation to be possible, they are able to work for it [...]

“Dodona, Talking trees, and Singing Bowls”

“Dodona, Talking trees, and Singing Bowls”

    “The oracle of Dodona was presided over by Jupiter, who uttered prophecies through oak trees, birds, and vases of brass. … The ‘talking’ trees stood together, forming a sacred grove. When the priests desired answers to important questions, after careful and solemn purifications they retired to the grove. When they had [...]

“Immune Soul as Authentic Being”

“Immune Soul as Authentic Being”

    “Even in the superior phase of the Soul—that which proceeds the impressionable faculty and any sensation—how can we reconcile immunity with the indwelling of vice, false notions, ignorance? … “If the Soul were material and had magnitude, it would be difficult, indeed quite impossible, to make it appear to be [...]
