Natural Theosophy

158 pages | Gebonden/Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, 2008

This book shows us that Theosophy in its pristine form is very ancient and indicates the opposite of every kind of materialism, both scientific and religious. Theosophy or the Divine Wisdom belongs to the everyday world, nutured by our altruistic desires. Thought, Love or will applied to our daily experience reveals its divine value, leading us to find the infinite in the finite.

The Eastern concept of “satyam”, “sivam” and “sundaram” (truth, goodness and beauty) are fittingly interwoven into the triad of thought, will, and action.

This book will help the reader understanding more clearly the true nature of Theosophy.

The Occult Training of the Hindus

By Ernest Egerton Wood  (1883 – 1965).

120 Pages | First edition 1931, 2nd edition 1952, 3rd edition 1990 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 817059149X.

As soon as one speaks in the Western world about Occultism in India, the imagination flies to travellers’ stories of marvels that they have seen in this country, of occurences demanding for their explanation faculties of sense, powers of consciousness and facts of nature beyond the common experience of humankind. Regarding these, I could personally relate a number of uncommon experiences, sprinkled among the events of a great many years spent in this land.

From page 120:

” Occultism may be defined as the use of the hidden powers in man to discover the hidden life in the world. It has thus rightfully been said, that it is ātmavidyā, the science of the Self, and that its object is to discover the Divine Mind in Nature and in oneself. Through the faculties and powers of the personality a man comes in contact with phenomena, and learns through them, as a child with toys. But with the powers of the higher Self – its will and love and thought, working in outward things, but unshaken by them, and not confused by personality – a man may penetrate through the veil of appearances, and the hidden reality in him will deal with the hidden reality behind phenomena. This man works through intuition – no longer a child, he deals with realities, not with toys. Such is the occultist, and to such goal is directed the occult training of the Hindus. “

Taking Charge of Your Life

By Ernest Egerton Wood  (1883 – 1965).

129 Pages | Formerly published under the title Character Building, first Quest book edition 1985 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835605949.

To take charge of your life you must have character. Character is the mark of the Soul as expressed in life and indicated your degree of emotional maturity. How we react to events from the outer world reveals our character. Ernest Wood suggests how we should react and why.

This is an inspiring reading for anybody sincerely interested in developing their hidden potential – an unique how-to study without the typically vague jargon associated with this type of subject matter. For Wood states his case in an enjoyable straight-forward manner.

How does one build character? With care! Like constructing a house, it must be done carefully step by step, from foundation to roof. It is in your power to take charge of your life and this book can help you develop that power.

From page XV:

Rule 20 from Light on the Path:

” All steps are necessary to make up the ladder. The vices of man become steps in the ladder, one by one as they are surmounted. The virtues of man are steps indeed, necessary – not by any means to be dispensed with. Yet, though they create a fair atmosphere and a happy future, they are useless if they stand alone. The whole nature of man must be used wisely by the one, who desires to enter the way. “

The Seven Rays – Seven Types of Men

By Ernest Wood (1883 – 1965).

190 Pages | Copyright 1925, fourth Quest book printing 1989 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835604810.

Humanity, occultism teaches us, is divided into seven distinct groups called ‘rays’. Generally speaking, your strongest motivations indicate to which of the ‘ray’ groupings you belong. You are influenced by all seven rays, occultism suggests, but one of the seven predominates. Would you like to know which of the seven rays is yours? ‘With such knowledge‘, writes the author, ‘we are in a position to choose what games we will play in this life or ours.’ For instance if your ray is number one, you are inclined to be independent in spirit and strong intuition. Is this your ray?

From the Preface (p. viii):

” If there are seven rays or types, and each one of us belongs, as it were, especially to one of these, and conducts his pathway in life accordingly, will there not be a tendency to narrowness or over-specialization?

This is a question often asked. The answer is:

Not if we understand the situation. All the seven rays are always present in everybody, but one of them in each person is the captain of the team or the president of the board, and the other six rally round, and use their own specific talents to help carry out his purpose. “

Come Unto Me – And Other Writings

By Ernest Egerton Wood  (1883 – 1965).

167 Pages | First edition 2000 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 817059426X.

Nearly every page of this book contains ‘gems of truth’ like the below – expressed simply, clearly and with gentle humour:

” I have not yet found the person, who does not teach me what not to do, as well as what to do “ – From Chapter 4: ‘Brotherhood’.

The truly great are not the abnormal, the miracle workers, but those whose lives are orderly and harmonious. ” – From Chapter 6: ‘Pleasure, Pain and Happiness’.

Every finite thing and experience has it infinite pole, so that through a falling leaf or the song of a frog we may march straight into the unlimited and free. ” – From Chapter 10: ‘A Garden by the Water blows’.

” The only way to truth is to pratice truth itself ” – From Chapter 12: ‘The Pathless Land’.

From Chapter 2: ‘ Theosophical Beliefs’ (p. 18 & 19):

” Every human being has his or her own karma. Out of it, he must make beauty, just as the lotus comes out of the mud. Let him use his own thought, his own love, his own will, in those circumstances, which are his karma – no matter what that karma may be – and out of that will come the triumph of life over form. There will be something beautiful there, and in himself will come the intuition of life itself, so that he suddenly knows that he is life, and life is joy and freedom. Let him not make a mistake as though the lotus seed were to say: ‘I do not like this mud; I want golden sands in which to grow’, nor the materialistic mistake of thinking that the triumph of his life over forms means that he should do what are called ‘big’ things, or great things. Quality is the sign of the spirit, not quantity. “
