    November 17, 2019 Theme for Contemplation: Prajna and Karuna
    We must not run after it, but fit ourselves for the vision and then wait
    tranquilly for its appearance, as the eye waits on the rising of the sun, which in its own time appears above the horizon–out of the ocean, as the poets say–and gives itself to our sight. — PLOTINIUS

    He who gets there must have ceased to be a number, and have become all
    numbers. He must have forgotten the illusion of separation, and accept only thetruth of collective individuality. — H.P. BLAVATSKY

    Magic is the greatest secrecy, for it is above Nature and makes
    Nature after the form of its will. — JACOB BOEHME

    With sense-objects gone, Bodhi is perfect and pellucid.
    In pristine purity, its illumination suffuses all,
    And its shining stillness enfolds the great void.

    Grandeur of character lies wholly in force of soul, that is, in the force of thought, moral principle, and love, and this may be found in the humblest conditions of life.

    I was reading the three objects of the Theosophical Society and was surprised to see that in 1875, there was only one object when the society was formed, “The objects of the Society are to collect and diffuse a knowledge of the laws which govern the universe.” Since then, the objects have evolved several times and the last modification was made in 1896 which is the current one we have.

    1. To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
    2. To encourage the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
    3. To investigate unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in man.

    I wonder why – diffusing a knowledge of the laws which govern the universe – is not explicitly stated in one of the three objects? The writings of HPB seems to be devoted to this effort.
