Is the Theosophical Movement proving it’s urgency still?
Nov 03, 2010 10:53 am

My brother said something wise this weekend when we ran into each other on a train station. He said that artists have to continually prove their urgency. He’s in training to be an actor, so he’s obviously thought about the topic. I’m used to disagreeing with this brother – I will always try and point ...


The Theosophical Society as a support system for those in spiritual transformation?
Oct 27, 2010 08:27 am

Radha talks a lot about spiritual transformation. Our lecturer tonight (theosophical professor Hans Gerding) had hands and feet for that concept. He thinks that one of the unique selling points of the TS is that it has the expertise to help people with kundalini awakening, and other spiritual experiences and crises. I don’t think he ...


Saying Thank You and spirituality
Oct 26, 2010 09:30 am

There are widely different views on saying thank you, and how it relates to spirituality. In classic theosophical circles, at least here in The Netherlands, saying thank you is a bit of a taboo I’ve been fighting. It is thought that people who need a ‘thank you’ for their efforts are really not as devoted ...


Why I will probably stay in the Theosophical Society: lodge work
Oct 25, 2010 06:27 pm

I know I sometimes scare people a bit with my cynicism about the Theosophical Society. There is one aspect of the work though that compensates for worries about the future and questions about the organization… it’s the lodge work. I fell in love with lodge work 17 years ago as soon as I felt it, ...

Oct 22, 2010 09:39 am

I’m not a feedburner stats addict, so when I saw accidentally yesterday that this blog had topped 300 subscribers, I was surprised. I added the feedburner widget to my blog just to show you all off To celebrate I’ll do two things. Today I’ll share my top posts of the past month with you all ...


Radha Burnier, the 7th president of the Theosophical Society
Oct 22, 2010 08:30 am

On a new theosophical blog, Esoteric Philosophy, Carlos Cardoso Aveline (a former member of the Adyar TS) notes: According to some, the fact that Radha Burnier is the seventh international president means that she closes a whole septenary cycle from the point of view of the outer and bureaucratic shell of the Adyar movement. There ...


Detox week experiment, the evaluation
Oct 21, 2010 09:21 am

I’ve been absent here, due to a variety of reasons. One was simply an unusual busy week. My youngest brother had a performance, I had a theosophical study group to lead, there was a meeting with my grandmother’s care givers to go to and an outing with her and the whole section of Alzheimer patients… ...


The Edgar Cayce Primer, by Herbert B. Puryear
Oct 12, 2010 11:26 am

I bought this book to get a grip on Edgar Cayce. In that sense it’s a good buy: the themes Edgar Cayce talked about in his readings are explained very well. However, I expected these explanations to be based mostly on Edgar Cayce quotes, and that is not what this is. It’s really Herbert B. ...


Day two of my detox / cleanse week
Oct 09, 2010 09:30 am

Well, things started out well. I woke up on Thursday morning with a very happy, relaxed feeling. Nice preview, but of course the detox hadn’t really started. Friday morning too: I woke up relaxed and happy. I’d gone to bed early – a by effect of the lack of tea perhaps? And the result was ...


Detox cleanse: about addiction and superstition
Oct 08, 2010 09:40 am

A reader asked: I’m a freelance web developer, meaning I get minimal sleep and live a very stressful lifestyle. I work on average 14hours per day, drink tons of coffee and red wine to keep me sane. I just finished a project and thought I might go a 1 week detox to get myself back ...
