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: The Absolute
The concept of the Absolute is related to the concepts of Truth and Deity in Theosophical Philosophy. There is no concept of a personal extra-cosmic God in Theosophy. Instead, the concept of the Absolute in some manner suggests the ALL, the ONE and the Sourceless Source of all life. The Absolute receives no prayer-requests and plays no favorites but instead is the groundless ground, so to speak, from which all life can be traced. The Absolute is the source of Law and Life in the universe and represents the ultimate reality.
