After Death

What Is The Self ? – Part 1

By KMT

What Is The Self ? Part One: What is the Self? This question resonates from the earliest beginnings of self conscious human life. Everywhere that man has awoken to the true wonder and terror of existence this question has already been there waiting for him. This question is the same question as arises at the dawn of all human awareness and inquiry: Why is there anything rather than nothing? This... Read More

What Is The Self ? – Part 2

By KMT

What Is The Self?: Part Two: In the earlier stages of the development of 1875 Theosophy, it was sometimes called Esoteric Buddhism; partly to distinguish it from the nihilistic forms of Buddhism which deny the existence of the real Self. For Theosophy and Mahayana Buddhism there is a real reincarnating Self that is not reducible to mere skandhas or karmic conditions. Theosophy understands that when awareness is limited to the...

What Is The Self ? – Part 3

By KMT

What is the Self Part Three You are outside late in the clear and cloudless night far from the lights of the city; you gaze up into the vast reaches of the star filled night, wonder awe and gratitude well up spontaneously from within you. A heartfelt longing reaches out into the vast light-filled indigo heavens; you know where you really come from and where you will one day return... Read More

The Rhythm Of Life and Death: All of life is a pulsating vibrating rhythm. The planets orbit and rotate around the Sun. The Earth in seasonal pattern and alternating speed orbits the Sun and we live in a world of dawn , light, twilight, and the star-filled, dark of night. We awaken we live in the day, grow tired, we sleep and live in the world of dreams and the... Read More

After Death Experience – Part 3

By KMT

From a Theosophical point of view being dead and in the after death states of Kama Loka, the Soul World; isn’t all that different from being alive in this world except of course in a few important respects it is really different. Once released from the Physical-Etheric complex and the Instinctive Entity we find ourselves in the same world we inhabit when asleep and dreaming. It is a familiar world... Read More

After Death Experience – Part 5

By KMT

In the world of the ‘dead’ where you are more alive than worldly life itself you experience light in a new way; this light is called the Astral Light. Everything is illumined from within and appears to be its own light source. Everything is constantly moving animated by its own life force derived from the light shining out from within it. This light also contains the blueprint or information that... Read More

After Death Experience – Part 6

By KMT

After Death Experience Part Six: Like and Dislike; Sympathy and Antipathy; Love and Hate. These are the emotional boundaries within which all other feeling and emotions take place in Kama Loka Three. Consciousness is a polarity of opposites. Any feeling upon which we repeatedly dwell, for a sufficiently long time, becomes indistinguishable from a self evident idea or ‘truth’.Organized religions are particularly apt at generating these unassailable convictions which set...

After Death Experience – Part 7

By KMT

After Death States Part Seven: The “second death” is the result of the soul being overwhelmed by feelings of self hate, to the point where it is unable to rise above the polarity of kama loka three and is slowly dissolved in the atmosphere of personal love and hate. This hatred combined with a selfish disregard for others has become a judgment upon the self. Ultimately the fragmented psyche and... Read More

We are still essentially in kama loka three but now we see its real context and location. We are still involved in the “life review” process involving “bi-location”... Read More

After Death Experience – Part 9

By KMT

After Death Experience Part Nine In this life we are consciously aware of two distinct worlds of experience: Our internal world of subjective private experience, which is going on inside the physical organism with its senses and natural capacity for cognition, and the external material world with its objects and sentient beings of many kinds. We experience the outer objective material world with its beings, events and relationships; we register... Read More

Akasha and the Astral Light

By KMT

Akasha and the Astral Light: From the very beginning of Theosophy the crucial task of resolving the apparent rift between spirituality and science has been underway. Theosophy explicates the most profound and deep understanding of the spiritual nature of the Cosmos and the spiritual being of mankind. Because mind [manas] is an eternal principle in the sevenfold nature of the human being, theosophy is intrinsically and fundamentally; science friendly. The... Read More
