The One True Adventure – Theosophy and the Quest for meaning

361 pages | Paperback | Quest Books, 2008

Theosophy is a vision of wholeness for all humanity that inspires a fellowship united in study, meditation, and service. It is an open-minded inquiry into world religions, philosophy, science, and the arts in order to understand the wisdom of the ages, respect the unity of all life, and help people explore their own spiritual path. The ultimate goal: self-transformation.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Mills balances these words of caution with words of inspiration and hope from notable scientists, theologians, philosophers, mystics, novelists, poets, and public servants. Whether citing The New York Times or Madame Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine; quoting the 19th century British explorer Edward Whymper or the Secretary-General of the UN, Mills leads her readers on a fascinating pilgrimage where all those who dare to partake are sure to find love in the pursuit of wisdom. The journey toward transformation is what Joy Mills calls “the one true adventure.” Now in her eighties, Mills shares her remarkable Theosophical insights with audiences across the globe in this thought-provoking collection of essays. The One True Adventure: Theosophy and the Quest for Meaning features a cross-section of her best writings spanning six decades. Revealing a youthful vibrancy throughout the text, she explores ideas that are “eternally applicable to the human condition.” While she acknowledges that the human condition often seems riddled with endless misery and folly, Mills asserts that we have not yet become fully human and that there is great hope in our potential for growth. Before that can happen, however, we must turn our gaze inward. “The struggle to become a person, to become human, takes place within,” she expounds. To become fully human is to uncover “our essential unity, our immortal destiny; our potential divinity.” In The One True Adventure Mills groups her essays to correspond with the four stages in the quest for meaning: The Human Condition, Our Hidden Potential, Esoteric Teachings, and Self-Transformation. This text is not simply the summary of a wise woman. They are also a guidebook to the acquisition of wisdom by anyone who follows their guidance. In her essay “Seek Out the Way,” for instance, Mills employs the metaphor of life as a journey. On the journey of life we participate either as tourists, enjoying life in a superficial sort of way, or as pilgrims, seeking a deeper sense of life’s meaning and purpose. The true quest is not for the passive spectator. To engage fully requires that we are willing to pay the price by assuming full responsibility for our own choices, and “a readiness to risk all for the sake of the journey.”

Op de drempel van het Heilige Pad – Psychologisch commentaar op Licht op het Pad

188 blz. | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2004

Het idee van een heilig pad is in alle religieuze tradities te vinden. Het gaat uit van een doel dat tal van benamingen heeft: Zelfrealisatie, verlichting, moksha, satori, bevrijding of redding. Het spirituele pad kent voorwaarden en regels. Joy Mills noemt er een paar:
aandacht; een zuiver leven; begeerte zonder gehechtheid; ‘doden’ zonder geweld; onophoudelijke waakzaamheid.

auteur: Mills, J.
ISBN: 9789061750864
Additional DescriptionMore Details

De schrijfster gaat in op het paradoxale karakter van sommige van deze regels. Mills spreekt helder, met ernst en met psychologisch inzicht, over zaken die bedoeld zijn voor de serieuze zoeker naar spiritualiteit. Zij laat zien dat de oude wijsheid nog altijd actueel is. De teksten van “Licht op het Pad” en “Karma” zijn in een bijlage opgenomen.

From Inner to Outer Transformation – Lectures on “The Voice of the Silence”

94 blz. | Paperback | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2002

We sometimes feel that if we can transform the world, then all will be well but unless something has occurred within us, there can be no outer transformation and so the progress is in a sense that we live what we believe. We make it living.

auteur: Mills, J.

Quotes from the first chapter of this book:

Rooted in one ultimate reality, the universe and all within it proceed by a process of emanation into being. When we say “one ultimate reality” we should not really say “One,” because One implies two. So, rooted in a non-dual ultimate reality, the process was radiation through which emanation occurred and within that inherent lawfulness of the system gave rise to an evolutionary cycle of becoming, which in the human stage is self-directed and self-consciously chosen. The pivotal doctrine of the esoteric philosophy is that there are no special gifts in man, save those won by his own Ego [reincarnating self] throughout a long series of reincarnation and metempsychosis. This is important because it is not simply by living a certain number of lives, reïncarnation, that we come to transformation.
… Consciousness is primary. … Only in the human stage does consciousness become reflective upon itself and therefore self-conscious decision and effort become not only possible but constitute the priveleged choice and the responsible act of every human being. We must choose: responsibility is there.

The Light on the Path is, according to Joy Mills, “a genuine exposition of age-old rules for those who would walk the upland slopes of Wisdom, seeking the Sacred way to inner illumination.” The aim of her commentary then, in part, was to indicate “the essential work that must be done on our psychological natures, for it is there that the genuine transformation must take place.” This is a Wisdom Tradition Book.

Dharma: de wet van ons beste wezen

18 blz. | Brochure | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, 2008

Misschien is de vervulling van onze individuele unieke roeping wel datgene waardoor wij op onze pelgrimstochten worden geroepen, ofwe nu in staat zijn deze roeping helder en bondig uit te drukken, of dat we alleen maar intuïtief aanvoelen dat er een doel is waarheen wij ons begeven, maar dat we nog niet in woorden kunnen uitdrukken.

auteur: Mills, J.
ISBN: 9789061750895
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Er bestaat een begrip dat een bruikbaar antwoord zou kunnen zijn op het onderzoek dat voor ons ligt. Dat begrip heet ‘dharma’. Dit woord heeft vele betekenissen, maar gaat tegelijkertijd dieper dan elk van de betekenissen die er aan gegeven kunnen worden.
