De Kunst van het Denken

Door Mieke Mosmuller.

125 Pagina’s | Uitgegeven in 2016 | Softcover | Uitgeverij Occident, Baarle Nassau | ISBN: 978-9075240412.

De intelligentie is voor de meeste mensen een geliefde aanleg, een vaardigheid om trots op te zijn. Op school wordt al vlug gekeken hoe intelligent de kinderen zijn. Er bestaan uiteenlopende tests om de intelligentie kwantitatief vast te leggen (IQ). Ook is de menselijke intelligentie het grote voorbeeld voor de kunstmatige intelligentie. Hoe vernuftig deze laatste intussen in het nabootsen ook is, er is nog lang geen werkelijke mogelijkheid om de levende intelligentie in een technische om te zetten. De meest eenvoudige denkacties van de mens vragen om eindeloze reeksen van besluiten in de techniek – terwijl omgekeerd het apparaat in staat is om in een seconde tot uitkomsten te komen waar een mens in een heel leven niet toe zou kunnen komen . . .

Maar als veld voor spiritualiteit is de intelligentie niet erkend. Het lijkt eerder een gebied dat verlaten moet worden, wil je tot de diepere wijsheden van het bestaan doordringen. In dit boekje wordt een begin gemaakt met het bewijs van het tegendeel. De intelligentie is de geest zelf en door deze bewust in activiteit te brengen – met geen ander doel dan deze activiteit – bewijst de intelligentie zelf haar spiritualiteit. Om dit te kunnen is geen hoog IQ nodig, maar het wordt hierdoor wel vanzelf hoog. Er is geen geloof in wat dan ook nodig – ook dit ontstaat vanzelf. Het enige wat nodig is, is een zekere discipline om twee maal per dag twintig minuten tijd te geven aan de intelligentie.

Afkomstig uit Hoofdstuk: ‘De Spirituele Traditie van het Denken’ (p. 37):

” Dat is de schoonheid van het denken, dat het vrij is van mijn persoonlijke overtuiging. Overtuigingen blijken nog iets anders te zijn dan denken. Overtuigingen kleven aan mijn alledaagse zelf. Het denken maakt mij juist los van mijzelf en tilt me op tot een wereld, die niet subjectief is, maar die ook niet alleen maar objectief is. Het is een absolute wereld, in zichzelf bestaand. Voordat ik begon met dit denken wist ik niet dat zo’n wereld bestaat. Nu begin ik te voelen dat die bestaat en dat ik daarbij hoor, dat ik daar meer bij hoor dan bij de uiterlijke materiële wereld. Ik kan een soort van ‘thuis komen’ voelen. “

De Verborgen Kracht van het Denken

By Monique Timmers.

187 Pages | Uitgegeven in 2007, derde druk | Softcover | Uitgeverij Schors, Amsterdam | ISBN: 9789063787035.

Het Scheppende Vermogen van onze Gedachte- en Gevoelswereld.

Wil je meer weten over de Verborgen Kracht van ons scheppend vermogen? Wil je weten hoe gedachtevormen eruit zien, wat hun uitwerking is op jezelf en de ander? Wil je weten hoe je het verouderingsproces kunt vertragen en je geestelijk en lichamelijk welzijn kunt verbeteren? De Verborgen Kracht is het scheppende vermogen van onze denk- en gevoelsprocessen. Het is onze Hogere Denkkracht, gedragen door Universele Liefde. Helaas zijn wij ergens door de levens heen de controle over dit vermogen verloren. We kunnen de natuurlijke controle over de Ware Geest weer activeren en deze kennis terugbrengen in ons dagelijkse bestaan. Laten we deze Goddelijke erfenis aanvaarden!

Afkomstig uit Hoofdstuk 3 – ‘De Wachter op de Drempel: Kies en schep wat je wilt zijn en wie je wilt zijn!’ (p. 45):

” Uit esoterisch onderzoek is gebleken, dat genezing en harmonie het best tot stand komen door eerst alles te accepteren: het ziektebeeld, de eigen verantwoordelijkheid. Dit is niet voor iedereen even gemakkelijk! Kies vervolgens voor het beste en realiseer dit in je denken en handelen. Doe dit met heel je wezen. Vertrouw op je eigen herstelvermogen, weiger iets anders dan liefde te schenken en kies voor gezondheid met heel je wezen! Weet dat ziekte voortkomt uit disharmonische denkpatronen en het feit dat wij ons los hebben gemaakt uit het universele Beginsel. Weet dat zo gauw er disharmonie of onaangenaamheid in onze natuur verschijnt, wij de wet van ons wezen overtreden. Weet dat dit de oorzaak is van elke disharmonie in ons systeem en de oorzaak van ziektes! Disharmonie nemen we levens met ons mee; we conditioneren ons telkens weer! Alles wat een harmonische uitwerking heeft op onze aard en zijnstoestand, dat wat ons gevoelens geeft van harmonie, evenwicht, vrijheid, kracht en liefde, is in overeenstemming met het werkelijke leven en het resultaat kan alleen maar gezondheid en harmonie geven. We kunnen geen disharmonie veroorzaken als we harmonie tot uitdrukking brengen! Harmonie is onze natuurlijke staat van zijn! “

Healing Without Medicine – From Pioneers To Modern Practice

By Albert Amao, PhD., Foreword by Mitch Horowitz.

323 Pages | First Quest Edition 2014 | Softcover | Quest Books U.S.A., | ISBN: 9780835609210.

‘How Millions have been healed through the Mind alone’.

The aim of this book is to demonstrate the power of thought to heal the mind and body. Amao examines the rationale behind so-called mind, spiritual, and faith healing and explain why this kind of treatment works where conventional medicine fails. Amao also examines the most prominent leaders of the New Thought movement, who used mental and spiritual means to recover their health from supposedly ‘incurable’ diseases, and he describes the mechanism that triggered their healing. Finally, he explains why some people do not respond to any kind of treatment, with medicine or without it.

Mainstream academia should be made aware that mental and spiritual healing is an authentic, American-made phenomenon, that originated in and has flourished since the nineteenth century, particularly in New England. This phenomenon continues to develop today through the emerging field of energy psychology, which includes Thought Field Therapy and its derivatives, such as the Emotional Freedom Technique and similar practices.

Amao’s main hypothesis is this: All methods of mind and spiritual healing are self-healing. Human beings have an inner capacity to heal themselves. Indeed, conventional medicine can be said to heal, because it removes obstacles so that the body can regain its recuperative capacity.

From Chapter 12 – ‘Thomas Jay Hudson, The Scientific Working Hypothesis’ (p. 114):

” Some student of Occultism approach metaphysical studies with the idea of surrendering their will and conscious mind to the direction of the subconscious. This is dangerous, because the subconscious cannot direct itself. The person, who allows his subconscious to control him runs the risk that dormant, anarchic, and destructive forces in the psyche will express themselves at the least, expected times in devastating ways. When the conscious mind surrenders it dominion over the subconscious, the person becomes at the mercy of untamed primeval instincts, which could result in mental illness. As Hudson wrote, the subconscious cannot direct itself, nor can direct us. Its marvelous powers must always be definitely limited if they are to do us any real good. The unrestrained expression of the subconscious is insanity. “

The Power of Thought – A 21st Century Adaptation of Annie Besant’s Classic Work ‘Thought Power’

By John Algeo.

172 Pages | First published in 1903, 2001 edition | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835607971.

Theosophist Annie Besant (1847 – 1933) drew from the Ancient Wisdom of the East to explore the deep recesses of the mind. The original edition was published in 1903 and has been in print ever since. Now leading contemporary Theosophists John Algeo and Shirley J. Nicholson have painstakingly revised the text to free its timeless truths from the time-bound language of the early 20th century and make it more accessible to today’s readers. The result is a clear discussion of subjects of increasingly high interest: concentration, memory, consciousness, telepathy, sleep and dreams, cultivation of the will, and access to your ‘Higher Self’.

From Chapter 12 – ‘The Secret of Peace of Mind’ (p. 152):

” We are the Self, and therefore the joys and the sorrow of others are ours as much as theirs. To the extent that we realise this and learn to live so that we share the life that flows through us with the whole world – to that extent we learn the secret of peace. That secret is knowledge of the Self, and the thought ‘That Self Am I’ (even if we have not yet experienced the reality) helps us gain a peace of mind that nothing can disturb. As the Bhagavad Gita [2.70] says: He attains peace, into whom all desires flow as rivers flow into the ocean, which is filled with water, but remains unmoved – not he who desires desire. “

Thought Power – Its Control and Culture

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

122 Pages | 6th edition, 1988. NB: second edition 2016 | Softcover | Quest Books U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835603121.

‘ A brief occult survey of the vast power contained in man’s mental principle. ‘

This brief, easy-to-read study concentrates on the hidden power latent in the human mind, which can do amazing things if properly activated and controlled. An in-depth understanding of this aspect of our nature should bring about a more compassionate metamorphosis of our attitude towards fellow beings, life itself and planet Earth. Western civilization recognizes the immense value of coming to know man as a ‘holisitic entity’, and of coming to terms with man’s mind. The sages of the ancient East and their noteworthy disciple, Annie Besant, have been proven to be most intuitive concerning this unique principle in man.

Subjects discussed are:

  1. Training the mind
  2. Improving concentration
  3. Strengthening thought power
  4. Meditation
  5. Improving memory
  6. Thought transference
  7. Building the mental body
  8. Combining thoughts with others
  9. Achieving peace of mind.

From Chapter VIII – ‘Obstacles to Concentration; Wandering Minds’ (p. 93):

” The concentrated intelligence, the power of withdrawing outside the turmoil, mean immensely increased energy in work, mean steadiness, self-control, serenity; the man of meditation is the man, who wastes no time, scatters no energy, misses no opportunity. Such a man governs the events, because within him is the power whereof events are only the outer expression; he shares the divine life, and therefore shares divine power. ” 

auteur: Besant, A.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Annie Besant (1847-1933) led the fight for the rights of women and laborers in her native England; later she worked with Mahatma Gandhi and spearheaded India’s struggle for freedom. Theosophist Joy Mills describes her as “a feminist before the movement for women’s rights was fully launched; she stood for freedom when half the world was held in the bonds of colonialism.” A student of India’s spiritual traditions, Annie Besant was famed as an orator, author, and international President of the Theosophical Society.

The Power and Use of Thought

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934),

38 Pages | First to tenth reprints 1912 – 2002 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170591902.

Leadbeater, an eminent seer and occultist, was a highly developed clairvoyant and the author of many books on the spiritual life and on the hidden side of things. In this slim volume, he provides valuable guidelines on the correct use of and control of the power of thought and emotion and of our responsibility for their effect upon others for good or evil. To change the world for the better, the first step is to change ourselves. To do this, requires us to know weaknesses, our strengths. Then we may utilize the magnificent power within for the benefit of humanity

Krishnamurti On Nature And The Environment

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986).

112 Pages | Published in 1992 | Softcover | Victor Gollancz, London Ltd. | ISBN: 0575053291.

As early as 1948 Krishnamurti said: ‘Because we do not love the earth and the things of the earth, but merely utilize them . . . we have lost touch with life . . . we have lost the sense of tenderness, that sensitivity, that response to things of beauty; and it is only in the renewal of that sensitivity that we can have understanding of what is true relationship’.

This is the first Volume of an unprecedented series of thematic selections from Krishnamurti’s works. Here, the world-renowned spiritual teacher explains eloquently how ‘true relationship’ is brought about by knowing how our inner world of thoughts and emotions is inextricably linked to the outer world of humanity and the environment.

From Chapter – ‘Talks in Europe 1968, Paris, 25 April 1968’ (p. 48):

” There is this immense complex problem of existence with all its fears, anxieties, hopes, fleeting happiness, and joys, but analysis is not going to solve it. What will do so is to take it all in swiftly, as a whole. You know you understand something only when you look – not with a prolonged trained look, the trained look of an artist, a scientist or the man, who has practised ‘how to look’. You see it if you look at it with complete attention; you see the whole thing in one glance. And then you will see you are out of it. Then you are out of time; time has a stop and sorrow therefore ends. A man that is in sorrow, or fear, is not related. How can a man who is pursuing power have relationship? He may have a family, sleep with his wife, but he is not related. A man, who is competing with another has no relationship at all. And all our social structure with its unmorality is based on this. To be fundamentally, essentially, related means the ending of the me that breeds separation and sorrow. “

Right Thinking – The Royal Road To Health

By Manly P. Hall (1901 – 1990).

52 Pages | Published in 1982 | Softcover | The Philosophical Research Society Inc. | ISBN: 0893148121.

Humanity is the only form of life in our physical environment capable of the experience of joy; therefore, it should be assiduously cultivated. If pleasures are normal, require no compromise of moral or ethical values, and are free from dissipation, they are a valuable defense against morbid conditions arising in the mind or body.

A bit advice stated by the English scholar Robert Berton, author of The Anatomy of Melancholy, is summarized in the six words, ‘Be not solitary, be not idle‘. We should all maintain a direct and friendly contact with the society to which we belong, and regardless of the availability of leisure, we should never permit ourselves to be idle. If we remain concerned with the common good and contribute in various practical ways to the well-being of the community in which we reside, we have every reason to hope that health problems can be controlled and for the most part overcome. Health, like happiness, must be earned. It is a reward for constructive involvement in labors dedicated to the common good.

From Page 10:

” Paracelsus regarded disease as an organism with its roots in the invisible nature of man, like parasitic plants or, like lecherous animals, sucking the blood of his Soul. He declared that as lions and tigers attack and devour humans and each other, so diseases are ravenous beasts loosed from the matrix of perverse impulses, and must be treated as such; not as mere aggregations of irrational malignancies. A disease is a story or diary, usually a rather comprising document. It sets forth that which we would tell no man, for it is a forced confession. When man can be laid low in no other way, he is humiliated by infirmity. But even the ailment may be a blessing in disguise, for by such checking we are often protected from ourselves. We are prevented by a lesser ache from doing a greater wrong. “

Thought Power – Its Control and Culture

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

138 Pages |; 2nd edition 2016| Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170591542.

(Also Published in 1988 by Quest, Wheaton).

(A twenty-first century adaptation of Annie Besant’s classic work Thought Power was issued in 2001 by John Algeo and Shirley J. Nicholson and published by Quest).

At the world level, we assess our ability, strength, or power before embarking upon a new venture. At the higher level, the value of knowledge is tested by its power to purify and ennoble one’s life, and by its application to the evolution of one’s character. This book helps to understand better one’s intellectual nature in order to cultivate the good in it, and allow the One Self to be the Knower. The oneness of the Self is not easy to comprehend, but the author asserts that ‘those, who would fulfil the maxim ‘Know thyself’ must not shrink from a little mental exertion, nor must expect mental food to drop ready-cooked from the sky into a lazily-opened mouth’.

Subjects discussed are:

  • Training the mind
  • Improving concentration
  • Strengthening thought power
  • Meditation
  • Improving memory
  • Thought transference
  • Building the mental body
  • Combining thoughts with others
  • Achieving peace of mind.

From Chapter VIII – ‘Obstacles to Concentration; Wandering Minds’ (p. 104):

” The concentrated intelligence, the power of withdrawing outside the turmoil, mean immensely increased energy in work, mean steadiness, self-control, serenity; the man of meditation is the man, who wastes no time, scatters no energy, misses no opportunity. Such a man governs the events, because within him is the power whereof events are only the outer expression; he shares the divine life, and therefore shares divine power. “
