Embodying Osiris – The Secrets of Alchemical Transformation

By Thom F. Cavalli, Ph.D.

275 Pages | First Question edition 2010 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608800.

A ground-breaking integration of Jungian Psychology, Alchemy and Egyptian Mythology.

The myth of Osiris, dying and resurrecting Egyptian God of vegetation, marks a change that describes the earliest beginnings of the modern psyche. In excavating the myth. Jungian psychologist Thom Cavalli uses alchemy to transmute hidden secrets into sacred knowledge. Here for the first time is an alchemical interpretation of this timeless myth as a guide to spiritual transformation. Osiris’s rebirth symbolizes what alchemists have always seen as the creative power we all have for self-renewal. Cavalli shows us how to access this archetypical God in the quest to integrate body and Soul. To ‘become’ Osiris is to become whole.

From Chapter 2 – ‘Alchemy, Magic and Osiris’ (p. 67):

” Whether I live or die, I am Osiris

I enter in and reappear through you,

I decay in you. I grow in you.

I fall down in you. I fall upon my side.

The Gods are living for me for I live and grow in the corn

That sustains the Honored Ones.

I cover the earth,

Whether I live or die I am Barley,

I am not destroyed. “

– Mojsov, Osiris (8) (see intro., nr. 4). The quote is from The Coffin Texts.

Evolution of the Higher Consciousness – An In-depth Study into H.P. Blavatsky’s Teachings

By Pablo Sender.

201 Pages | First edition 2018 | Hardcover (cloth) | Fohat Production, Ojai, California.

Who are we? What is the purpose of life? How do we actualize our potential? These are the questions that thoughful people have asked since time immemorial. Evolution of Higher Consciousness is a comprehensive study of the teachings of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831- 1891) on these issues.

Madame Blavatsky, co-founder of the Theosophical Society, was the pioneer of the esoteric renaissance that took place at the end of the nineteenth century. Ever since, her writings have served as foundational source for modern spirituality. In his book, Pablo Sender presents Blavatsky’s profound but frequently puzzling statements systematically and in clear, concise language. He throws light on the nature of our spiritual essence, its evolutionairy unfoldment, and the work that we can do in daily life to consciously participate in this cosmic journey.

From page 178:

“Within yourself is the light . . . The light of the higher self and of the Mahatma are not different from each other.

In the presence of the Master the lower nature is spontaneously transformed. This is why in the taijasic state there is no need to fight, control or manipulate the lower. Passions and afflictions are powerful only when the pure awareness identifies with them. This practice, along with the a general ‘effort’ at leading a spiritual life, will eventually make the temporary state of ‘manas taijasa” more and more available, until it becomes permanent in the union of buddhi-manas. When we are aware of our innate divine Wisdom, conscious of our identity with everything , and aware of our transcendental and immutable nature, the human evolutionairy pilgrimage comes to an end. New field of self-expression open up to the liberated consciousness, which now becomes a beneficent force aiding human and planetary evolution.

.  .  .

Joy unto ye, O Men of Earth.

A Pilgrim hath returned back ‘from the other shore’.

A Saviour of Mankind is born.

Esoteric Psychology – The Theosophical Janus

36 Pages | Soft cover | August 2008 | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

* The Blavatsky Lecture * delivered at the Summer School of The Foundation for Theosophical Studies, Wills Hall, The University of Bristol, Sunday August 2008.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), as we know, at least once remarked that ‘Theosophy is not for dumbskulls!’ By that, her writings clearly demonstrate, she meant that the operative principles behind this all-embracing form of wisdom-philosophy have to be studied carefully and followed in practice before it can even begin to be properly understood. However, those principles are not be taken on board like some religious ritual, driven by blind faith and a happy assumption that somebody else will take up the full responsibility for explaining their full significance.

What Theosophy is and how it works cannot really be understood other than through direct experience of the principles behind the operation of consciousness itself is regarded by the cutting edge of modern science as the next major frontier to be crossed, it is this subject which I propose to address today – although not perhaps in the manner which an orthodox scientist might adopt.

Integrating and Managing the Personal Shadow – Intelligent Handling of Our Dark Energy

116 Pages | 2016 | Paperback | Vijay Nicole Imprints Private Limited, Chennai

For many of the ancient traditions and some psychological approaches the great obstructer of the inner development is fear. It generates insecurity; it pressures the searcher to decline his intentions and finally, in order to sleep peacefully, he assumes that retracting and not acting was smart, however he loses the opportunity to experience life.

” If we understand that fears are just thoughts, we can free ourselves from them. ” Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 – 1986)

These thoughts are part of the personal shadow. They destroy the possibilities of living and reduce our potential. This book explains the personal shadow and its effects on life. The bird’s meaning of life is flying, that’s why it has wings, the snake is to slither and therefore it has a body equipped for this movement. Likewise, human beings possess divine potential and therefore they need to develop that potential. Shadows affect the inner development.

This book discusses:

  1. Effect on inner development
  2. Effects of management of light and shadow in the human being such as wisdom, ignorance, darkness and shadow
  3. Explanation of shadow effects through fables
  4. Approach of shadow in psychology
  5. Methods to know our personal shadow and how to measure the effect of personal shadow in our lives?
  6. An alchemy model to face the shadow
  7. Transforming powers of change

This book also presents ideas and schemas, that combine science, philosophy and the ancient mystical traditions. It aims to help readers integrate their personal shadow and thus lead a fulfilling and productive life.

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

172 p. | 2001 Edition, 1903 | Paperback | Quest Books

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’.

Between Two Worlds – The Riddle of Wholeness

By Frederic Wiedemann.

194 Pages | A Quest original, first edition 1986 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House (now Quest Books), U.S.A. – ISBN 0835606023

” When clinical psychology rejects the soul, then clinical psychology loses its ability to heal “.

Being human is roughly half-way to divinity. Thus it is that we are caught between two worlds says Frederic Wiedemann. How can we bring together the material side of man with his transpersonal nature? Or is this an irresolvable paradox? The school of thought, that comes the closest to resolving the enigma is the twenty-year old transpersonal consciousness movement. This discipline provides Wiedemann with his ‘take-off’ point as he focuses on the limitations of clinical psychology in its unwillingness to include spirit as a factor in therapy. To resolve this dilemma of body and spirit, the author uses the metaphor of the soul as the bridge between two worlds.

From Chapter 13 – ‘Making Decisions with Integrity’ (p. 166):

” If the soul perspective is used with the proper balance of power, wisdom, and love, then it offers a unique ethical direction, combining both the wisest teachings of religion and the deepest aspects of the human potential. But one must be willing to labor for it and to strive for it and to strive for a balance between immanence and transcendence. “

Mindscape – Exploring the Reality of Thought-Forms

By Bruce A. Vance.

197 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1990 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN 0835606600.

. . . a daring and provocative voyage through the nocturnal landscape ‘.

In Mindscape, Vance further charts the still largely unknown fathoms of our mental depths. He shows us that thoughts are real, not just in our heads. They project outward and take on forms in the superphysical field around us. Thoughts have an energy all their own, that can affect others through telepathy. In addition to having a reality beyond our minds, Vance says our thoughts create our world. Beliefs are powerful and tend to ‘come true’. If we believe we are ineffectual or ill, we will be; if we believe we are capable or healthy, we will be.

The author cites experiments in subatomic physics to show how powerful our mindsets are. To further support his views, Vance looks to the work of clairvoyants like Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1943) and cites cases of shamanistic journeys and out-of-body experiences. By becoming aware of our self-imposed limitations and our greater potential, we can release our mental energies and use them to greater advantage. Vance explains how!

From Chapter 9 – ‘The extended Reach of Mind’ (p. 185):

” So, what are the boundaries of mind? None. What are the boundaries of selfhood? None. And what are the boundaries of consciousness? There are none. The infinity of reality is open to us through exploring our mindscape. But we are physically incarnated for a purpose. There is something important to learn here. It has to do with the powers of creation, some of which are at our disposal. “

Dreamscape – Voyage in an Alternate Reality

By Bruce A. Vance.

180 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1989 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN 0835606481.

This voyage into alternate reality acquaints you with your dreaming self and teaches you the tools, language and dimensions of the dreamscape.

Much can be discovered in the shadow of your dreams. However, no one can interpret your dreams for you. If you wish to understand your dreams, then you must embark on a prolonged and serious exploration. This book guides you into this alternate reality. The dreamer is taught to record details and impressions, employing intuition for interpretation. In this strange realm, time and space take on new aspects. Problems are explored from a variety of angles for possible answers. The dreamer encounters dream teachers, who instruct us in the art of creating our own reality by placing pupils in scenarios and then helping them find their way out. Focused consciousness brings about lucid dreams, waking dreams, or even out-of-body experiences. Deeper into the dreamscape, one encounters even stranger dimensions where colors are tasted and shapes have sound.

From Chapter 4 – ‘On the Shores of the Dreamscape’ (p. 64):

Frequently, within the Dreamscape, we manifest our desires, inclinations, hopes and fears in order to face and examine them. We may be wondering if we truly desire what we think we desire, and thus may be using the freedom of the Dreamscape to investigate. Therefore, though some fantasy scenarios require no deep interpretation, often on examination they will reveal clues to our personal drives and needs. Fantasy and adventure encounters within the Dreamscape are often private creations. We use the freedom we have in the dream environment to create things easily which we find hard or inadvisable to create in the physical environment. “

Psychism and the Unconscious Mind

Edited by H. Tudor Edmunds.

254 Pages | First Quest edition 1968, second edition 1974 | Softcover | Quest Books, USA | ISBN: 0835604128.

Collected Articles from the Science Group of the Theosophical Research Centre, London.

This book is the result of research and study by a group of distinguished British scientists, who have devoted much time and applied the training in their various disciplines to an unprejudiced investigation of the many areas of psychic manifestation. Their comments and discussions on such subjects as telepathy, clairvoyance, hypnosis, and effects of mindexpanding drugs, the human aura, and related subjects, are perceptive and informative. Because the writers are also students of Theosophy and Eastern philosophy, they have been able to add valuable insights to their considerations of the various phenomena without in any way lessening their objective and scientific approach to this still mysterious field of human experience.

From Chapter: ‘The Interior Organ of Perception (p.55):

Mind is the inner organ.

” So whether approached from within by the Eastern metaphysical insight or from without by an attempt to deduce an hypothesis to explain scientific observations, it would appear, that man’s mind is an inner organ, or instrument, of perception with a focus of ‘I-ness’ associated with the brain. It has the capacity of throwing up a three-dimensional field of imagined images, thoughts and feelings, themselves not spatial in a physical sense, but related to space by some method of direct correlation. They appear in a mental field, which is not the property of any one observer, but can only be termed a generalised mental field. “

Seeking Wisdom

233 Pages | Second reprint, 2004 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

From the first chapter I – Seeking Wisdom:

” In the Dialogue dealing with the death of Socrates, Plato explains that the true philosopher meets death as a friend and not as an enemy., because he understands the nature of the change, which death brings about. It is a natural and happy change. One’s attitude towards death depends on one’s understanding of life, the true nature of which is inseparable from the truth with regard to death. Philosophy means literally ‘Love of the Wisdom’. These are two words, each of which has an extraordinary and beautiful meaning. It would be well worth while for us to try to understand what the true nature of Love is, and what is really meant by Wisdom, which of course is not mere knowledge. “

Consciousness: Its Nature and Action

28 Pages | First edition, 2002 | Soft cover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

In this lecture, Mr. Sri Ram (1889 – 1973), known for his deep understanding of philosophical questions, explores how consciousness loses its sensitivity and gets obscured, but has the potency of awakening into the full light of wisdom. He says: ‘We do not notice the beauty of a cloud or the movement of a leaf or bird and many other things. An artist is needed to paint a picture and point out the beauty‘.

How can we achieve union with the living beings around us, and even to a slight extent be open to the truth and beauty, which are inherent and omnipresent in life? This book offers insights into how the quality of our consciousness can be transformed so that it is constantly renewed, remaining open to the truth of life as it reveals itself.

An Approach to Reality

263 Pages | First edition 1951, 3rd edition revised & enlarged 1968, reprinted 1992 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

This volume is based on adresses delivered in different places over a period of years, and carefully revised. It contains portions written to elucidate points touched upon in the adresses. They are being printed in this form in the belief, that they may be of some help to those interested in such matters. The subject of Reality is a difficult one, and whatever is in the following pages represents the writer’s approach and is essentially an attempt on his part to define his own understanding. The standpoint with regard to all matters in the book is that of a student of Theosophy; what Theosophy is as seen from his own and unique point of view. To one, who seeks true understanding without that dogmatism, which ever negates the seeking, there is no finality. Seeking implies discovery, and fundamentally, each must come to Truth by him or herself. But there is a value in exchange of views.

Mr. N. Sri Ram (1889 – 1973) was International President of the Theosophical Society from 1953 – 1973, a period of twenty years. He brings to his writings a background of Eastern Wisdom combined with a keen awareness of modern thought and knowledge, as well as a sensitive understanding of human problems. His special felicity of style enables him to convey profound ideas in a lucid and absorbing manner.

The Hidden Side of Things

560 Pages | Third edition, 2nd reprint 2012 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

” A classic work of clairvoyant investigation. “

Why is there so much Chaos in this world? This book may help the reader to understand the influence thoughts and actions have on the way we relate to our inner selves, to human and non-human beings and to the universe.

From Chapter One:

“The term ‘occultism’ is one which has been much misunderstood. In the mind of the ignorant it was, even recently, synonymous with magic, and its students were supposed to be practitioners of the black art, veiled in flowing robes of scarlet covered with cabalistic signs, sitting amidst uncanny surroundings with a black cat as a familiar, compounding unholy decoctions by the aid of satanic evocations. 

Even now, and among those whose education has raised above such superstition as this, there still remains a good deal of misapprehension. For them, its derivation from the Latin word ‘occultus’ ought to explain at once, that it is the science of the hidden; but they often regard it contemptuously as nonsensical and unpractical […] Students, who should know better, perpetually speak as though the hidden side of things were intentionally concealed, as though knowledge with regard to it ought to be in the hands of all men, but was being deliberately withheld by the caprice or selfishness of a few: whereas the fact is, that nothing is or can be hidden from us by our own limitations, and that for every man as he evolves, the world grows wider and wider, because he is able to see more and more of its grandeur and its loveliness.”

But every Lodge, which is worthy of the name, is also doing something far higher than any work on the physical plane, and this higher work can only be done in its own primary meetings. Furthermore, it can be done only if these meetings are properly conducted and entirely harmonious. ” – page 2.

Dreams

67 Pages | Sixth edition, 2012 | Paperback | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

Dreams are part of common experience, yet a mystery that is little understood. Psychologists and others who are ignorant of the human being’s true constitution, ranging across several subtle levels, are only groping to learn their significance. C.W. Leadbeater (1854 – 1934), an eminent clairvoyant and author of many books, explains in the manual how human consciousness functions when the body is asleep and how it is affected by the experiences in the physical and the subtle worlds. These experiences take shape as dreams of different kinds – true, prophetic, symbolical, confused and so on.

The author emphasizes the importance of mastery over thought processes and lower passions in order to respond to the influences of the true Self within. The last thoughts before going to sleep must be about pure and holy things. Then dreams will not disturb the serene and joyful experience of higher worlds.

The Personal Aura (with 19 Full Color Illustrations)

By Dora van Gelder-Kunz (1904 – 1999).

195 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1991, second printing 1996 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606716.

This book, an original study of the human aura, includes 19 paintings that depict the emotional energies, which surround each person. The changes that occur from infancy to old age are illustrated by the auras of specific people. The pictures also show changes, that occur in the aura in illness. The author worked with Juanita Donahoo to produce the striking paintings in full color. The Personal Aura presents a fresh view of these subtle aspects of the human constitutionm which are hidden from most of us. It offers helpful suggestions for changing difficult emotional patterns.

From Chapter 8: ‘Healing and the Possiblities for Change and Growth’ (p. 166):

” The effects of healing upon the patient’s aura can be quite dramatic. First, the influx of emotional energy causes the aura to expand. When this happens, it starts up the process of eliminating some of the disturbances and blockages in the aura, and thus reduces anxiety. Anxiety produces frightening mental images. But if imagery is used together with the healing, there will be a simultaneous effect; the immune system will be strengthened through the influx of etheric energy, and as the frightening image dissipate, the aura will slowly regain its integration and recover its health. ”

A Flame of Learning – Krishnamurti withTeachers

By Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895–1986).

205 Pages | Copyright 1993 | Softcover | Mirananda, Den Haag | ISBN: 9062718299.

Many educators and parents have found Krishnamurti’s insights into the human condition and the nature of learning especially relevant to the education of children. For them and for others, who wish to live sanely and wisely in a world of growing confusion and who wish their children to do the same, this book will be a valued addition to his previous works.

In discussions with teachers at Brockwood Park School, which he founded in England in 1969, Krishnamurti assumes the role of a person coming to teach in such as school. Frankly and directly, he explores the new teacher’s relationship with the school, with his colleagues and especially with students, questioning the nature of freedom and authority, the place of motive and self-interest, the source of fear and violence, and the possiblity of awakening intelligence and sensitivity to order. In the course of the exploration, they go into the nature of investigation itself, and consider the necessity for the clarity of observation and communication.

Above all, Krishnamurti challenges the teachers – and the reader – to look at the need for radical psychological change, and to consider the possibility of such change in all human beings.

” My concern . . . is to awaken this intelligence in my students, so that they will be free. “

The Chakras and the Human Energy Fields

By Shafica Karagulla, M.D (1914  – ca. 1986) and Dora van Gelder Kunz (1904 – 1999).

243 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1989 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835606417.

THE ENERGY FIELDS ARE THE KEY TO HEALTH.

Shafica Karakulla, specialist in neuropsychiatry, and Dora van Gelder Kunz, gifted clairvoyant and healer, present experimental evidence that illness can be seen in the subtle energy fields of the body. Fascinating case studies of actual patients show that clairvoyant observation can diagnose disease and even reveal potential illness before it manifests in physical symptoms. The key to health and disease, the author shows, lies in the dynamic interaction between the body’s physical, emotional and mental fields and universal energy fields. Understanding this interaction can help us alter our energy patterns in the direction of better self-integration, health and wholeness.

From Chapter 17: ‘The Role of Consciousness – Towards the Future’:

” The chakras are centers of energy, which are constantly interacting with one another from hour to hour, and changes in the energy patterns occur as a continuing process. Healing therefore reflected in changes of rhythm and other basic alterations in these centers. Meditation and visualization, if done regularly and combined with changes in behavior, can produce modifications in the chakra patterns, and these are reflected in the person’s health and physical well-being. A genuine transformation can thus be observed. Whether the person knows about the role the chakras play as energy centers makes no difference whatsoever. “

The Seven Human Temperaments

88 Pages | Second edition, 1st reprint 2011 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

In the occult tradition, the number seven occurs frequently. The Seven Rays refer to the seven different human temperaments. Geoffrey Hodson describes the characteristics of people in each of these rays, their strengths and weaknesses, ideals and methods. He also points out that most people show forth in daily life the characteristics of the seven rays. Ultimately, we must develop the qualities of all the rays, although the unique characteristics of one of them will predominate.

Included is an enfolded A2-diagram mapping out the seven rays and their characteristics.

Paramitas of Perfection – Blavatsky Lecture 1987

By Muriel Daw.

37 Pages | Blavatsky Lecture 1987 | Soft cover | The Theosophical Publishing House, London.

” Yea Lord, I see the PATH, its foot in mire, its summits lost in glorious Nirvanic. And now I see the ever narrowing Portals on the hard and thorny way to Jñana “ – From: The Voice of Silence , ‘The Seven Portals’, p.  47.

” . . . O weaver of thy freedom, thou hast to master these Pāramitās of perfection – the virtues transcendental six and ten in number – along the weary path. ” – From: The Voice of Silence, ‘The Seven Portals’, p. 48.

The six and ten transcendental virtues “, (the Pāramitās), are not for ful-grown yogis and priests alone, but for all those who enter the PATH. ” – Written to H.P.B. by her Master, from: Collected Writings 12, p. 598.

Most of us, as students of Theosophy, are already familiair with the second quotation from The Voice of Silence. However, although we may have meditated for years on the first of the transcendental virtues so richly described in THE SEVEN PORTALS, for some of us there remains a burning question: ‘Ten Pāramitās are mentioned, what about the other four?

It may be thought perhaps these other four are unimportant, otherwise Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891) would have given us more information about them: but this is not true. In fact, Buddhists call them ‘The Four Great Perfections’. They are so important that they are never given to beginners, only to students well advanced along the Way. It should also be noted, that in the Buddhist Scriptures, the Path of the Ten Pāramitās is always linked with the Ten Bhūmis (Stations or Earths) experienced along the Way.

Thought Forms

77 pages | 2nd Edition, 4th reprint, 2015 | Hard cover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar

Hardly a moment of our waking life passes without thoughts. Are thoughts material? What do they look like? We assume, that being silent and unnoticed by others, ideas and thoughts are insignificant, but each one of them is that much of an unique power, positive or negative for us or others in the measure of its quality and intensity. This is clearly brought out in this publication – first published in 1901 – with the aid of many vivid coloured plates and graphic drawings conveying the power of thought.

The Seven Principles of Man

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

111 Pages | First Adyar Edition, 12th reprint 2015 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar.

This book is the first in a series of manuals intended to meet the need for a simple exposition of Theosophy. It describes in clear terms the seven aspects of man’s nature based on theosophical precepts. Its aim is to lead the casual enquirer to a deeper study of the philosophy, science and religion of Theosophy and ultimately to a realization of the central objective of the Society, the brotherhood of man and the possibility of spiritual growth.

From page 2:

” Man, according to the Theosophical teachings, is a sevenfold being, or, in the usual phrase, has a septenary constitution. Putting it in another way, man’s nature has seven aspects, may be studied from seven different points of view, is composed of seven principles. The clearest and best way of all in which to think of man is to regard him as one, the Spirit or true Self; this belongs to the highest region of the universe, and is universal, the same for all: it is a ray of God, a spark from the divine fire. This is to become an individual, reflecting the divine perfection, a son that grows into the likeness of his father. “
