This group focuses on key concepts as presented in theosophical literature. Each Phase will take up passages drawn from selected texts in order to fuel discussion among members.
This group explores the fundamental principles of theosophy as set out by H.P. Blavatsky and her predecessors in the larger Wisdom Religion tradition of mankind. We are looking at these key ideas from a variety of standpoints, philosophical, metaphysical, psychological, practical or scientific. The hope is to connect with the core ideas so that we can better understand both their esoteric meaning but also to find therapeutic applications.
Theosophical Tenets: Divine Wisdom, Theosophia, The Secret Doctrine, The Perennial Philosophy
Divine Wisdom, Theosophia, The Secret Doctrine, The Perennial Philosophy
“Theosophy, in its abstract meaning, is Divine Wisdom, or the aggregate of the knowledge and wisdom that underlie the Universe ― the homogeneity of eternal GOOD; and in its concrete sense it is the sum total of the same as allotted to man by nature, on this earth,”
“Theosophy is the shoreless ocean of universal truth, love, and wisdom, reflecting its radiance on the earth.”
“Theosophy is divine nature, visible and invisible, and its Society human nature trying to ascend to its divine parent.”
“Theosophy . . . is the fixed eternal sun, and its Society the evanescent comet trying to settle in an orbit to become a planet, ever revolving within the attraction of the sun of truth. It was formed to assist in showing to men that such a thing as Theosophy exists, and to help them to ascend towards it by studying and assimilating its eternal verities.”
