2013 in Review

buddhas_nature“THOREAU pointed out that there are artists in life, persons who can change the colour of a day and make it beautiful to those with whom they come in contact,” H. P. Blavatsky wrote:

“We claim that there are adepts, masters in life who make it divine, as in all other arts.

“Is it not the greatest art of all, this which affects the very atmosphere in which we live?

“That it is the most important is seen at once, when we remember that every person who draws the breath of life

“…affects the mental and moral atmosphere of the world,
and helps to colour the day for those about him.”

“If all our readers … endeavored to learn the art of making life not only beautiful but divine, and vowed no longer to be hampered by disbelief in the possibility of this miracle, but to commence the Herculean task at once, then [2014] would have been fitly ushered in…


“Man’s life is in his own hands, his fate is ordered by himself. Why then should not [2014] be a year of greater spiritual development than any we have lived through?

It depends on ourselves to make it so. This is an actual fact, not a religious sentiment. In a garden of sunflowers every flower turns towards the light. Why not so with us?


“And let no one imagine that it is a mere fancy, the attaching of importance to the birth of the year. The earth passes through its definite phases and man with it — and as a day can be coloured so can a year.

“The astral life of the earth is young and strong between Christmas and Easter. Those who form their wishes now will have added strength to fulfill them consistently.” (Excerpted from H. P. Blavatsky, “1888”)


A musical score waving

Thank you!

(The WordPress.com stats helpers prepared a 2013 annual report for Theosophy Watch, click below – enjoy!)


Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 72,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see it.

  1. Madame Blavatsky’s comment about the astral life of the earth being young and strong between Christmas and Easter is particularly interesting. It makes sense to me that our intentions would have added strength at this time. Thank you TW, so great.
