Paul Robertson, “Through a Glass Darkly”
COMPASSION is no mere attribute of thinking or emotion, says the Book of the Golden Precepts.
Calling it “the Law of Laws,” the ancient precept declares that true harmony must lie in recognition of the “fitness of all things.”
Additionally, this power is described as a “shoreless universal essence,” and “the light of everlasting Right.”
Simply put, the ancient teaching says, this power is nothing short of “the law of love eternal.”
But, writes Blavatsky in Psychic and Noetic Action, “no physiologist, not even the cleverest, will ever be able to solve the mystery of the human mind, in its highest spiritual manifestation.”
Nor will they be able to understand the duality “of the psychic and the noetic—or even to comprehend the intricacies of the former on the purely material plane.” Continue reading

DUALITY rules our conscious existence, for example neither light or darkness can ever appear alone. They are inseparable — rearrange one on life’s canvas, and you change the other.
As metaphors for “spirit and matter,” the twins are emblematized on the back of the U. S. dollar— matter pictured as a heavy pyramid base, but with its capstone removed — in its place a spiritual eye of blazing light.
Ironically, or perhaps knowingly, the Founders coupled money, arguably the root of all evil, with the most spiritual symbol of an “All Seeing Eye” — known also to occultists as “The Third Eye.”
Yet experience seems to show that choosing selfish material values, and ignoring conscience, we end up trapped in perpetual cycles of crisis like oil spills.
That both sides of The Great Seal of the United States appear together on the back of the dollar bill, should be an ever-present reminder of our dual nature. We are an industrialized, material culture, yet profess higher values of justice, freedom and equality.
The human brain, home of the third eye, “is simply the canal between two planes,” H. P. Blavatsky wrote, “the psycho-spiritual and the material.”
We are usually unaware of this duality, because the organ of the spiritual eye is hidden, Theosophy says, in the pineal gland at the back of our brain.
The eye is also mentioned in Matthew 6:22, Luke 11:34:
“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” Continue reading

THE epiphany for astronaut Edgar Mitchell occurred when he looked out the window of his spacecraft at the Earth, Moon and Sun, and at the infinitely vast star systems.
Suddenly it came to him that the molecules and cells of our bodies must have had their origin in those faraway stars.
It was at that moment an overwhelming realization of the interconnectedness of all life dawned on him. It was a life-altering flash of intuition resulting not in “intellectual knowledge,” he says, but in a “visceral knowing.”
“It was accompanied by a very blissful feeling that I had never experienced before.”
