Tais narrativas fazem quase uma caricatura do Jesus deificado do Novo Testamento. I t has been well established in classic theosophical literature that the Law of Karma operates in different lines, according to the circumstances of each plane of reality. Karma can be said f be lineal, but its lines are numberless, and they often cross each other. If we leave the highest planes aside, there are at least three great agglomerations or clusters of karmic scenarios in life: Each one has its own karmic scenarios and chains of causation.
Yet interaction is the law of the universe, and karmic self-determination is counterbalanced by interdependence. The universe is alive.
A subtle dynamic unity links all levels, ecosystems and aspects of Nature. No chain of cause-and-effect can isolate itself in its own dominant plane or niche of reality.
Every perceived absence of interaction is no more than a temporary illusion. On the other hand, there is an infinite variety in possible forms of interaction, in quality and in quantity, in space, time and rhythm. At any given level of reality, different chains of causation exert a mutual influence among themselves in their own common ground of life and perception. They are also subject to the constant influence coming from both higher and lower realms of nature.
They actively influence these higher and lower levels as well. It can also operate by irruptionor in a quick, intense way, as in thunder and lightning. At the right moment, the accumulated energy of that karma, blocked in its osmotic activity, suddenly bursts into other levels of life, invading them and quickly transforming their karmic conditions. Irruption is then a parenthesis in the process of self-determination.
Osmosis is an impersonal, everyday process. It embraces the soul equivalents to the calm rain, the mist, the dew — and the sudden flash, the thunder, the lightening. Yet it is the quiet osmosis that grants the constant average transmission of spiritual light from above. The active will of each student makes the difference. Osmosis is therefore not a mechanical or one-dimensional influence. Since nothing in the universe is isolated, the learner will have to deal with the collective ignorance of present-day humanity.
Ignorance is often well-organized, and has its own forms of osmosis. There is no great distance, therefore, between self-liberation in oneself, and self-liberation in others.
It is in solidarity and self-sacrifice that one can make real progress. The alchemical fire of probation — stimulated by contact with the renewed air of right understanding — provides the right temperature for burning impurities. How can we actually observe such an influence? In theosophy, it can be said that there is also an osmometry of spiritual soulby which one observes and measures the pressure and influence exerted by the higher principles of consciousness over the lower ones.
Clarity of vision and common sense enable the student to have the necessary discernment. Wise men often say that if there is a diligent effort combined with an absence of hurry, in due time such a contact will become as quick as lightning and thunder. It can be found in our associated websites. In the same volume, the concept of occult osmosis appears at the opening paragraph of Letter V, page 17, and at Letter XIV, pp.
Blavatsky was not alone in proposing this axiom. Influenced in part by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, French philosopher Maine de Biran made a long-standing practice of self-observation in parallel with the observation of nature and natural processes.
The book is available at our associated websites. The same practice of comparing inner and outer worlds is examined in other books on the life and philosophy of Maine de Biran.

Wanting to be a Disciple. If the desire be held determinedly and unceasingly, the goal is brought nearer, but that also brings up all karma of the past, thus precipitating an immense conflict on the individual: As to times and periods, it is said in the East that when the probationary chela steps on the path he buxca reach a goal in achaaras births hereafter.
Mahatmas See Every Pure Heart. And let me say here to you: The help must be of that nature which leaves perfect freedom of thought and action; otherwise, the lessons would not be learned.
Masters Help Truth Seekers. Meditation, a Tool Along the Way. Meditation as used by us, is what is called in Sanscrit Dhyanai. The main point is to free the mind busva the power of the senses, and to raise a current of thought to the exclusion of all others. Concentration on a single point in the Teaching is a road to the philosophy ; self-examination, a road to knowledge of oneself.
To put oneself in the place of anotherto realize his difficulties, and thus be able to help him, is that faculty — which when extended makes it possible for the Adept acharss understand the nature of the stone or other form of consciousness. Meditation is a accharas beneficent practice leading to a great end. It is also a great destroyer of the personal idea.
We Are All Warriors, as Arjuna.
Arjuna is man or the soul struggling to the light, and while Krishna was one of the Avatars or manifestations of God w men, he is also the Higher Self. Arjuna as man in this world of sense and matter is of necessity either always in a battle or about to begin one, and is also ever in need of advice.
This he can get only in a valuable way from his Higher Self. True Theosophists Will Prevail.

We need to bring again and accharas to the attention of all discouraged and bewildered Theosophists what H. I saw a few earnest, reliable Theosophists in a death-struggle with the world in general, and with other — nominal but ambitious — Theosophists. As he is so, then all the Hierarchies of the Heaven exist within him.
P erhaps the idea that the theosophical movement is under direct observation of Adept-Teachers may provoke an uncomfortable feeling in some students of theosophy. This is, of course, understandable.
But the notion should not come as a complete surprise, for there is no separation in the Universe, and our little planet is no exception to the rule. During the s, one of the Himalayan Raja-Yogis explained to a Western lay-disciple: We may move in cycles of activity divided — not entirely separated from each other. The Master wrote in the same letter: How then does that observation occur? In one of the Mahatma Letters, there is a hint about the procedure. Robert Crosbie, the main founder of the United Lodge of Theosophists, was perfectly aware of this subtle form of inner inspiration.

Writing between andMr. And Crosbie went on in the same letter: The help will come for the most part in ordinary ways and from one or another of the companions with whom you were possibly connected in other lives, and whom your soul will recognize. Is it strange, then, that the light of souls attracted toward the path of unselfishness should receive Their cognition, and when deserved — when needed such succor as Karma permits?
Doubt and fear belong only to the — personal consciousness; the real Perceiver, the Higher Ego has neither. Blavatsky wrote in a private letter to William Judge: Olcott — one of the main founders of the movement — gives us further evidence of the observation of the movement by Initiates.
The practice of observing the inner nature of students is not new. This is perfectly within our possibilities, if the right effort is made. The way to do that is outlined in simple words in the Mahatma Letters: They will never get rid of the pollution of their vain, wicked hearts, nor perceive the spiritual portion of themselves.
Will you not try — for the sake of shortening the distance between us — to disentangle yourself from the net of life and death in which they are all caught ….? It may be shorter or longer, but it does not mean separation. Among the Pythagorean sentences of Sextus one finds this one: Demophilus, another ancient Pythagorean, says: And he does live with the gods who constantly shows to them that his own soul is satisfied with that which is assigned to him, and that it does all that the daimon wishes, which Zeus has given to every man for his guardian and guide, a portion of himself.
The name of the magazine deserves a clarification. The meaning of the word was distorted in the Middle Ages by Christian fanatics interested in justifying their own crimes against humanity.
