THE Cheyenne say that “our first teacher is our own heart,” but mainstream science offers few apples to that master instructor.
To Western medical schools the heart is only a mechanical blood pump.
That view is beginning to change. The medical community is being challenged to expand its thinking about human biology, health, and wellness.
Leading-edge research in holistic medicine, biophysics, bioenergetics, and biocentrism all point in the same direction — showing we are more than just our bodies are more than physical molecules and chemicals.
Explaining why and how we are more, H. P. Blavatsky asserts in The Secret Doctrine (2:149) that “The whole issue of the quarrel between the profane and the esoteric sciences,”
“… depends upon the belief in, and demonstration of, the existence of an astral body within the physical, the former independent of the latter.”

ELECTRICAL and magnetic signatures are generated, occult teachers say, whenever there is physical touch, the sound of a voice, or even a meaningful look.
Every action we take in fact carries information about us, a kind of psychic body language.
The transfer of information from one person to another without the mediation of any known channel of sensory communication, called telepathy, is the most noticeable effect of this transfer.
Mme. Blavatsky and her Teachers authorized three plainly stated Objects for the Theosophical Society— the Third referred to psychic and spiritual powers.
Despite this fact, revisionists in some major theosophical groups unilaterally removed both the words psychic and spiritual from that original Third Object. Many smaller groups have, unfortunately, timidly followed suit.
Yet, in H. P. Blavatsky’s The Key to Theosophy, Section 3, published in 1889, the original Third Object of the Theosophical Society is stated unambiguously:
“To investigate the hidden mysteries of Nature under every aspect possible, and the psychic and spiritual powers latent in man especially.”

CONSCIOUSNESS is at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives.
Knowing nothing of its spiritual essence, we reduce consciousness to its various ‘states’ — waking, sleeping, intuitive, meditating, angry, depressed, happy or sad.
We experience perhaps hundreds of such random cognitive and emotional states every day.
But because nature is only judged by science “through her appearance,” H. P. Blavatsky wrote, “that appearance is always deceitful on the physical plane.” And she adds that Science:
“refuses to blend physics with metaphysics, the body with its informing soul and spirit, which they prefer ignoring.”
Nevertheless, physics and metaphysics were once deeply entwined, resulting in the natural philosophy of the Greeks — now given the cold shoulder by a science that defers to computer simulations, and giant machines.
The Secret Doctrine, (Esoteric science), on the other hand, reconciles the body-mind being, establishing a substrate spiritual root that it calls collectively, BE-NESS. The esoteric wisdom “checks the discoveries of modern exact science,
“and shows some of them to be necessarily correct, since they are found corroborated in the ancient records.”
The ancients recognized that all life is suffused with ‘god-particles’ due to the ubiquity of a metaphysical One Absolute BE-NESS — “the first fundamental axiom of the Secret Doctrine.”
