BETWEEN Science and Theology is a bewildered public, fast losing all belief in man’s personal immortality, in a deity of any kind, and rapidly descending to the level of materialism.
From the remotest antiquity, mankind as a whole have always been convinced of the existence of a personal spiritual entity, within the personal physical man
This inner entity was more or less divine, according to its proximity to the crown—Chrestos [Christos, The Higher Self].
The closer the union, the more serene man’s destiny, and the less dangerous the external conditions. This belief is neither bigotry nor superstition, only an ever-present, instinctive feeling of the proximity of another spiritual and invisible world.
“This world, though it be subjective to the senses of the outward man, is perfectly objective to the inner ego.”
The foregoing words were written by H. P. Blavatsky in Isis Unveiled, her first first major work on Theosophy—examining religion and science in the light of Western and Oriental ancient wisdom, and occult and spiritualistic phenomena.

COMING to its senses from seeming insanity, a new humanity is “raising its voice” Theosophy declares.
The words signaled Helena Blavatsky’s welcome to an expected New Age of humanity, written more than a hundred years ago.
The world is trending today as she envisioned: “in those authoritative tones to which the men of old listened in reverential silence through incalculable ages.”
Characterizing this new humanity she described in her article “The Tidal Wave” how “the Spirit in man has returned like King Lear, from seeming insanity to its senses.”
She was not the first to acknowledge the arrival of a newly awakened humanity.

WE are surrounded today by untold numbers and varieties of energy-intensive, man-made machines and gadgets.
We are besieged by these machines all day, they rule life in the developed world.
These products range from the hardly necessary to the indispensable, and all are actively in use. From automatic can openers to cardiac pacemakers, to video games, to our beloved cell phones and computers.
But the electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) that spin off from them, it turns out, are our developed society’s price-to-pay for its ever-throbbing, artificial world.
Many readers will recall Rachel Carson’s comfort zone shattering expose Silent Spring, which documented the world-wide destructive effects of pesticide use, notably DDT.
Her research launched what has become finally the well regulated and thankfully popular organic food industry.

WHAT is the winter solstice, and why do so many people around the world bother to celebrate it, as they do every year at this time?
“The word ‘solstice’ derives from the Latin sol (meaning sun) and statum (stand still),” explains the NY Times Op-Ed Contributor in the article”There Goes the Sun.”
The phenomenon reflects what we see on the first days of summer and winter at dawn for two or three days.
At that time the sun seems to linger for several minutes in its passage across the sky, before beginning to double back.
Winter in the northern hemisphere marks the annual return of an ancient solar festival. Indeed, “turnings of the sun” is an old phrase, used by both Hesiod and Homer.
The novelist Alan Furst has one of his characters nicely observe, “the day the sun is said to pause,” recalls the NY Times Op Ed: “Pleasing, that idea. …
As though the universe stopped for a moment to reflect, took a day off from work. One could sense it, time slowing down.”
But the event has deeper, metaphysical implications. Both the Sun and the human heart are the two greatest life-givers we know. Indissolubly interconnected, according to occult teachings, both radiate continuously a powerful aura of biological and regenerative energies.
“The Sun has but one distinct function,” Blavatsky explains to her students (Transactions, 116) — “it gives the impulse of life to all that breathes and lives under its light. The sun is the throbbing heart of the system, each throb being an impulse. … This impulse is not mechanical but a purely spiritual, nervous impulse.”

“NO STAR among the countless myriads that twinkle over the sidereal fields of the night sky,” writes Helena Blavatsky, “shines so dazzlingly as the planet Venus.”
“Venus is the queen among our planets, the crown jewel of our solar system.”
“She is the inspirer of the poet, the guardian and companion of the lonely shepherd,” she writes, “the lovely morning and the evening star.”
“For, ‘Stars teach as well as shine,’ although their secrets are still untold and unrevealed to the majority of men, including astronomers.”
“They are ‘a beauty and a mystery,’ verily.”

NEARLY all of us humans, occult teachers say, are inexorably reincarnated into new lives of earth, yet invisibly clothed in myriads of memories from the past.
These include snippets of our innate ideas, haunting images of unrealized aspirations and desires, and our unresolved fears.
These torn pages of personal history are the underlying drivers that steer our reincarnations. This is Karma, reincarnation’s unerring “twin doctrine.”
