What is it that ever is?

October 10, 2019 - By H.P. Blavatsky

The Occult Catechism contains the following questions and answers:     “What is it that ever is?“ “Space, the eternal Anupadaka.”(1) “What is it that ever was?“ “The Germ in the Root.“ “What is it that is ever coming and going?“ “The Great Breath.“ “Then, there are three Eternals?“ “No, the three are one. That which ever is is one, that which ever was is one, that which is ever being and becoming is also one: and this... Read More

Blavatsky. to private pupils during the years 1888 to 1891, included in a large MSS volume left to me by my father, who was one of the pupils. — P.G.B. Bowen  [1] “H.P.

“What is that which was, is, and will be, whether there is a Universe or not; whether there be gods or none?” asks the esoteric Senzar Catechism. And the answer made is — SPACE.   Space is neither a “limitless void,” nor a “conditioned fulness,” but both: being, on the plane of absolute abstraction, the ever-incognisable Deity, which is void only to finite minds,* and on that of mayavic perception, the Plenum,...

The True Nature of Occult Training

September 28, 2018 - By H.P.Blavatsky

However often the true nature of the occult training has been stated and explained, few Western students seem to realize how searching and inexorable are the tests which a candidate must pass before power is entrusted to his hands.  Esoteric philosophy, philosophy , the occult hygiene of mind and body, the unlearning of false beliefs, and the acquisition of true habits of thought, are more than sufficient for a student...

After death states…….

September 24, 2018 - By Editor

The astral body, which in this life is covered by a gross physical envelope, becomes, when relieved of that covering by the process of corporeal death, in its turn the shell of another and more ethereal body.  This begins developing from the moment of death, and becomes perfected when the astral body of the earthly form finally separates from it.  This process, they say is repeated at every new transition...

Karma – our web of destiny

July 27, 2018 - By H. P. Blavatsky

Those who believe in Karma, have to believe in Destiny which, from birth to death every man weaves  thread by thread around himself, as a spider his web; and  this destiny is guided either by his heavenly voice of the invisible prototype outside of us, or by our more intimate, astral, or inner man who is but too often the evil genius of the embodied entity called man. Both of... Read More

Time is only an illusion

March 6, 2018 - By H. P. Blavatsky

Time is only an illusion produced by the succession of our states of consciousness as we travel through eternal duration, and it does not exist where no consciousness exists in which the illusion can be produced ; but “ lies asleep.” The present is only a mathematical line which divides that part of eternal duration which we call the future, from that part which we call the past. Nothing on... Read More

Too difficult to read? The Secret Doctrine throws your mind into cosmic consciousness.

January 12, 2018 - By S. Ormerod

Some theosophists avoid reading Blavatsky’s monuments work – The Secret Doctrine – citing that it is “too difficult”.  Other theosophists have never seen this work or know of its existence.  If you decide to undertake a study of this work, you will find it difficult – but not impossible. It’s best to join a discussion group on line or better yet a meeting in your area. Start small, to begin... Read More

The Theosophical organization: more needed now than ever before.

December 4, 2017 - By S. Ormerod

To form a nucleus of Universal Brotherhood without distinction of race, sexual orientation, belief, social position, or skin colour.*  This is the first object of the Theosophical Society, an organization, formed in New York City, 1875. They were a diverse group of sincere people wishing to meet on a regular basis to discuss the newest discoveries regarding; comparative religion, science, ancient and occult texts and wisdom; the unexplained laws of...

The Law of Analogy

December 4, 2017 - By newtheosophynetwork

From Gods to men, from Worlds to atoms, from a star to a rush-light, from the Sun to the vital heat of the meanest organic being – the world of Form and Existence is an immense chain, whose links are all connected. The law of Analogy is the first key to the world-problem, and these links have to be studied co-ordinately in their occult relations to each other. — 1:604... Read More

Welcome to the new website!

June 7, 2017 - By Sharon Ormerod

As you can see we are launching a new format for the New Theosophy Network site. The founders formed a “physical body” – a theosophical organization, as a practical vehicle for the ancient body of works which fall under the umbrella of theosophy – divine wisdom. It was never meant to encourage individual differences, but to serve as a forum for union of those striving for truth and the study... Read More

The narratives of the Doctrine are its cloak

March 16, 2016 - By S. Ormerod

We are slowly reading through the Secret Doctrine. It’s not an easy read, as anyone who has studied this work will agree. but there is something that occurs, to the student, as they are reading and persist over time. You come to realize that it isn’t about the literal contents of the work, although that alone is amazing; it is what happens to the mind of the student, as he/she... Read More

Buddhi and Self consciousness unite – becomes the Higher Self

March 1, 2016 - By S. Ormerod

I came across the following quote in the Secret Doctrine regarding Christ, Christos and our Spiritual Ego.  I think HPB makes it clear that our Higher Self is the union of Buddhi (the vehicle of Atman) and Manas (mind), hence the awakening of the spirit within the physical.  Christos is referred to as the seventh principle or Atman. Of course we hear the Christian term, “Christ manifest in you”, or... Read More

Fohat, Divine Love (Eros) seeks to bring pure spirit into union with the soul

January 28, 2016 - By S. Ormerod

Man has existed from the beginning of the formation of the universe. He was there in potential with the first union of spirit into matter.  Destined to experience matter, the monadic principal, our spiritual soul, has and will continue, to pass through every form of material existence.   Atma, the omnipresent, eternal and boundless One and Buddhi, the representation of that One principle manifested in matter, are said to be...
