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 | ISBN: 9780997553512.

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. “

When the Sun moves Northward – The Way of Initiation (A Quest Miniature)

By Mabel Collins (1851-1927).

160 Pages | First Quest Edition 1987, A Quest Miniature | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835606141.

I am often asked about the question of Time in regard to the great Ceremonies which take place at midnight when the spirits of men are most completely released from their bodies during the recurrent periods of light and darkness on the earth. Midnight means the deepest depth of the darkness: it has no connection with the arbitrary hours. Therefore, in time there is necessarily a difference according to what places on earth the disciples are dwelling in: and, as time does not exist except as an arbitrary temporary convenience, once outside the body man loses the sense of it. ” – Mabel Collins (1923)

Mabel Collins, author of The Light On the Path, explores the link between the mystic recurrence of the Earth’s cycles of birth, death and rebirth with the seasonal regeneration of our own spiritual nature. Her meditative prose beautifully evokes the time-less sense of cosmic renewal and the consequent growth of consciousness that has its germination deep within those reflective months of quietude when the sun moves northward.

Dharma

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

78 Pages | 6th Edition, 2011 | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170595687.

´Dharma´ is a term, which has now become part of the world vocabulary, but very few know the range and depth of its meaning. Annie Besant (1847 / 1933), having studied the great discourse on dharma of Bhisma in the Mahābhārata, introduces this complex and deep subject to the lay reader. Morality or dharma is subtle, varying from individual to individual, for it is the law by which inner nature unfolds in each one from his or her particular stage of evolution. This is a subject of great relevance to all individuals and nations of the world, treated in this book with the innate Wisdom and intuitive insight of the author.

The Divine Plan

By Geoffrey A. Barborka (1897-1982).

564 Pages | Sixth reproduction 2015 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House Adyar | ISBN: 8170591848.

Dutch translation: Het Goddelijk Plan (2 Delen) | Uitgegeven in 1973 | Hardcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9789061750321.

This work could be best described as a guide for an in-depth exploration of The Secret Doctrine (1888). Learning topics concerning cyclic evolution, the big cosmic laws, the hiërarchical composition of the universe et cetera are discussed and their underlying cohesion is demonstrated. Challenging concepts – mostly Sanskrit – are explained in a simple way. Geoffrey A. Barborka seems to have mastered the art of letting complicated teachings explain themselves as it were, without the interference of his own opinions and interpretations.

The Secret Doctrine – Abridged and Annotated by Michael Gomes

By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891), abridged and annotated by Michael Gomes.

257 Pages | Published in 2009 | Softcover | Tarcher/ Penguin Books | ISBN: 9781585427086.

The Secret Doctrine, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s masterwork on the origin and evolution of the universe and humanity itself, is arguably the most famous, and perhaps the most influential, occult book ever written. Published since 1888 only in expensive, two-volume editions of some 1400 pages, it has long eluded the grasp of modern readers- until now.

auteur: Blavatsky, H.P./Gomes, M. (ed.)
ISBN: 9781585427086
Additional DescriptionMore Details

This single-volume edition, abridged and annotated by historian and Theosophical scholar Michael Gomes, places the ideas of The Secret Doctrine within reach of all who are curious. In particular, Gomes provides a critical sounding of the book’s famous stanzas on the genesis of life and the cosmos – mysterious passages that Blavatsky said originated from a primeval source and which form the heart of The Secret Doctrine. Gomes scrupulously scales down the book’s key writings on symbolism to their essentials, and offers notes and a glossary to illuminate arcane references. His historical and literary introduction casts new light on some of the book’s sources and on the career of its brilliant and elusive author, one of the most intriguing personages of the nineteenth century. At once compact and representative of the work as a whole, this new edition of The Secret Doctrine brings unprecedented accessibility to the key esoteric classic of the modern era.

Cyclic Evolution – A Theosophical View

By Adam Warcup.

144 Pages | Published in 1986 | Softcover | The Theosophical Publishing House, London | ISBN: 0722951507.

The current scientific perspective of the evolution of life on Earth is that of a linear progression from simple to complex. The theosophical perspective is radically different. It postulates a cyclic evolution both for Life itself and for individual genera and species, man included. It further postulates a non-physical component as integral to the whole process. Without this added dimension, evolution appears a to be a random process – a perspective wholly denied by Theosophy.

From the Introduction (p.1.):

” Man, Know Thyself, said the Delphic Oracle. Finding ourselves in a complex world, naturally we ask questions about ourselves and our origins. When we first see that this life is but one of many, we have merely answered the first question. This answer certainly gives life a greater meaning, but it also leads to other questions. Where did the process of rebirth start? Will it end, and if so, when? How did we become the complex psycho-spiritual beings we see ourselves to be? The theosophical literature which is concerned with cyclic evolution provides us with many clues, which lead towards, not so much final answers, as an understanding of the process. “

This Dynamic Universe

Edited by Corona Trew and E. Lester Smith.

167 Pages | Copyright 1983 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 083560232X.

Offered in this book is a valuable link between the occult concepts that appear in the Magnum Opus of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky’s (1831 – 1891) The Secret Doctrine (1888) and the latest theories of science. This Dynamic Universe is quite unique as a resource for the serious student of creation and evolution, clarifying as it does, some of the more difficult principles dealing with man and the cosmos.

From Chapter 5 – ‘References to Fohat in The Secret Doctrine‘ (p. 30):

” The Manifested Universe (therefore) is pervaded by duality; which is, as it were, the very essence of its Ex-istence as ‘Manifestation’. But just as the opposite poles of Subject and Object, Spirit and Matter, are but aspects of the One Unity, in which they are synthesized, so, in the Manifested Universe, there is ‘that’, which links Spirit to Matter, Subject to Object. 

This something at present unknown to Western speculation, is called by the Occultists Fohat. It is the ‘bridge’ by which the Ideas existing in the Divine Thought are impressed on Cosmic Substance as the ‘Laws of Nature’. Fohat is thus the dynamic energy of Cosmic ideation; or regarded from the other side, it is the intelligent medium, the guiding power of all manifestation, the ‘Thought Divine’ transmitted and made manifest through the Dhyan Chohans, the Architects of the visible World. “

The Theatre of the Mind – Evolution in the Sensitive Cosmos

By Henryk Skolimowski (1930 – 2018).

167 Pages | A Quest Original, first edition 1984 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835605884.

This stimulating book of ‘evolutionairy illuminations’ expresses the eonic drama of our eternal growth – from instinct to intuition. Skolimowski is a constant delight and surprise as an image-breaking philosopher/scientist/mystic. He establishes his position as an intrepid spokesperson for ecologically sound progress. He writes irreverent things in a reverent manner. From Prometheus to Prigogine, through a philosophy founded on experience, he develops the law of progressive development based on an ever-growing sensitivity to life.

From the Introduction (p. 21):

  1.  ” The coming age is to be seen as the age of stewardship: we are here not to govern and exploit, but to maintain and creatively transform for the benefit of all beings.

  2. The world is to be conceived as a sanctuary. We belong to certain habitats; they do not belong to us. They are the source of our culture and our spiritual sustenance. We must maintain their integrity and sanctity.

  3. Knowledge is to be conceived, not as a set of ruthless tools for atomizing nature, but as ever more subtle devices for helping us to maintain our spiritual and physical equilibrium. “

Rhythm of Wholeness

By Dane Rudhyar (1895 – 1985).

268 Pages | A Quest Original 1983 | Softcover | Quest Books U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835605787.

This extraordinary work has been called ‘Dane Rudhyar’s Great Opus – his masterwork – formulating and integrating as all-inclusively as possible his philosophical/metaphysical worldview‘. Thus, Rhythm represents the culmination of decades of intense research into and creative thought about the basic questions concerning creation and evolution. In this book we find Rudhyar’s optimistic conclusion that man is part and parcel of ‘the wholeness that always is‘. Here is his challenge to the reader to consider man in a planetary frame of reference. Rhythm is, in short, the author’s total affirmation of being.

From Chapter 15 – ‘Epilogue’ (p. 256):

” Out of the ever-renewed chording of innumerable wholes, within wholes, within wholes . . . the cyclic of Wholeness rises. Is it a melody? Or is it one immense Tone sent forth by the gong of Space for countless wholes to resonate to – if they can, if they dare? Oh, blessed are those whose hearts respond to it, and in whose mind its overtones become Meaning, and Meaning, peace! ”

From Atom to Kosmos – Journey without End

By Lafayette Gordon Plummer (1904 – 1999).

121 Pages | First published in 1940, second revised edition 1987, first Quest edition 1989 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. co-published with Point Loma Publications, San Diego | ISBN: 0835603083.

There is a type of the true clairvoyance on the spiritual and cosmic planes‘, writes Plummer. ‘There one hears the symphony of eternal life’.

Ever look through a telescope and feel spellbound at the wonders of the heaven? Seeing is believing – and to help us truly see, this book shows us how to ‘don the winged cap and sandals of Hermes‘ and ‘soar far above the Earth, beyond the pale moon, passing at a step the confines of the Solar System, until we found ourselves lost in the velvet blackness of the night sky. ‘

The author offers a riveting condensation of the ancient Wisdom. He opens readers to the universal powers latent in people, powers far greater than any psychic abilities. He also reviews astronomy’s speculations about one stupendous Super Universe, a speculation that coincides with Theosophy’s occult teachings.

From Chapter IV – ‘Life Without End’ (p. 25):

” A Master of Life is one who is able, not only to draw upon his or her own resources, inner and outer, but through the medium of his or her inner constitution, to contact the inner planes, and draw upon the resources of the Divine Being whose ‘principles’ are these planes of consciousness, and therefore a part of whose nature he or she him/herself is. And these resources are exhaustless. “

The Life After Death

By Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934).

94 Pages | First edition 2012, 13th Reprint | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 9788170592532.

The subject of life after death is one of great interest to all of us, not only because we ourselves must certainly die one day, but far more because there can scarcely be any more among us, except perhaps the very young, who has not lost (as we call it) by death someone who is near and dear to us. So if there be any information available with regard to the life after death, we are naturally very anxious to have it.

From Chapter VII – ‘Guardian Angels’ (p. 69 & 71):

” There are many graceful traditions of spiritual guardianship and angelic intervention, which we should all very much like to believe if we could only see our way to accept them rationally, and I hope to explain that to a very large extent we may do this. The belief in such intervention is a very old one. Among the earliest Indian legends we find accounts of the occasional appearances of minor deities at critical points in human affairs. […] The old belief in angels and archangels is justified by the facts, for just as there are various kingdoms below humanity, so there are also kingdoms above it in evolution. We find next above us, holding much the same position with regard to us that we in turn hold to the animal kingdom, the great kingdom of Deva-s or Angels, and above them again an evolution which has been called that of the Dhyan Chohans or archangels and so upward to the very feet of Divinity. All is one graduated life, from God Himself to the very dust of beneath our feet – one long ladder, of which humanity occupies only one of the steps. “

The Heavens Declare – Astrological Ages and the Evolution of Consciousness

By Alice O. Howell.

281 Pages | Copyright 1990, second edition 2006 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608350.

‘The implications are staggering! Why don’t more people know about these things!’ So wonders Alice O. Howell, one of the most profound astrologers of our time and an authority on C.G. Jung’s depth psychology. Her view of astrology as symbolic of archetypical processes provides a tool for the deep healing of the psyche. It also presents a bold synthesis of history, religions, mythology, and Jung’s concept of the collective unconscious. Supported by irrefutable archaeological evidence, Howell traces the evolution of consciousness through five of the great astronomical Ages of the past ten thousand years. She explains the logic of the signs first, so that we can then marvel at the synchronicities.

Her findings imply a resolution of the Piscean dichotomy of faith and reason, that has reigned for two millennia. (Consider the current movement to marry physics and spirituality). This leads her to speculate on humanity’s future tasks and traps. ‘As foretold, it’s not the world that’s ending‘, she laughs. ‘It’s just the Age. And here comes the next!’. Simply written as letters to a friend and analyst, The Heavens Declare offers warm advice as it inspires us to experience one flash of insight after another.

From Chapter 1 – ‘The Ring of Quiddity’ (p. 13):

” Each star
is a kiss
I would give you –
should others
wake to a starless night
you would be lying
in my arms
covered with light. “

The Pathway to Perfection – A Treatise on the Path of Swift Unfoldment

By Geoffrey Hodson (1886 – 1983).

70 Pages | First edition, fourth reprint 2005 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170590213.

This book is a successor to my former work, Meditations on the Occult Life. Both were written in the meditative state, which can follow the practice of contemplation. This work aims to provide some understanding of the whole process of man’s evolution to a state of perfection. The reader glimpses the opportunities, difficulties, pitfalls and ups and downs of the entire journey fr0m Man t0 Superman.

From Chapter –  ‘The Laws of the Spiritual Life’:

” I AM Divine, Eternal and Immortal. I affirm and realise my divinity, my immortality and my eternity. 

Divine is the SELF, I AM the Divine SELF, that SELF AM I.

Immortal is the SELF. I AM the Immortal SELF, that SELF AM I.

Eternal is the SELF. I AM the Eternal SELF, that SELF AM I.

The SELF is in ME is One with the SELF in ALL, 

I AM that SELF, that SELF AM I. “

” Such phrases as these, mentally affirmed with increasing depth and fullness of realisation, serve to exalt the consciousness. Oft-repeated, continually affirmed with concentrated thought and will, they will most surely take man across the Bridge of the Immortals, which is no outer bridge, but shines within him or herself . . . “

Aspects of Divine Law

By Geoffrey A. Farthing (1909 – 2004).

49 Pages | Published in 2001 | Brochure | The Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

Nederlandse vertaling: Aspecten van de Goddelijke Wet | Published in 2004 | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, Amsterdam | ISBN: 9061750849.

Most in this brochure is extracted from the writings of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891). It has been said that these writings constitute a quarry from which generations of students can extract treasures of information concerning the truths of existence. What follows has been taken from these writings by the use of indexes, and the numerous extracts classified very roughly according to aspect. The story is a vast one. The universe manifests dynamism in all its operations and these operations apparently exhibit order. Whatever chaos there may have been in the remote beginnings of things now manifests this order as harmony and equilibrium. Where this not so the whole cosmic scene would be chaotic and self-destructive, whereas it is self-preserving as is evidenced by its very existence after countless millions of years.

From page 49:

” If Theosophy prevailing in the struggle, its all-embracing philosophy strikes deep root into the minds and hearts of men, if its doctrines of reïncarnation and karma, in other words, of hope and responsibility, find a home in the lives of the new generations, then, indeed, will dawn the day of joy and gladness for all, who now suffer and are outcast. For real Theosophy is ALTRUISM, and we cannot repeat it too often. It is brotherly love, mutual help, unswerving devotion to Truth. If once men do but realize that in these alone can true happiness be found, and never in wealth, possesions, or any selfish gratification, then the dark clouds will roll away, and a new humanity will be born upon earth. Then, the GOLDEN AGE will be there, indeed . . . “

Aspecten van de Goddelijke Wet

Door Geoffrey A. Farthing (1909 – 2004), vertaald door Louis Geertman.

52 Pagina’s | Uitgegeven in 2004 | Brochure | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland, Amsterdam | ISBN: 9061750849.

Engels origineel: Aspects of Divine Law | Published in 2001 | The Theosophical Publishing House, London | No ISBN.

Deze brochure is grotendeels ontleed aan de geschriften van Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831 – 1891). Men zegt dat deze geschriften een bron vormen waaruit generaties bestudeerders schatten aan informatie kunnen putten over de waarheden omtrent het bestaan. Wat hier verteld wordt is buitengewoon veelomvattend. Het universum is op alle gebieden dynamisch werkzaam en in die werkzaamheid is duidelijk een ordening aanwezig. Hoe chaotisch deze ordening in het verre begin van all bestaan ook mag hebben geleken, thans manifesteert zij zich evenwel als harmonie en evenwicht. Als dit niet zo was, dan zou de hele kosmos chaotisch zijn en zich te gronde richten, terwijl zij zichzelf in stand houdt, zoals blijkt uit het feit dat hij nog steeds na talloze miljoenen jaren bestaat.

Afkomstig van pagina 49 & 50:

” Als de Theosofie in de strijd zegeviert, haar allesomvattende filosofie diep geworteld in het denken en in de harten van de mensen, als haar leringen over reïncarnatie en karma, met andere woorden, over hoop en verantwoordelijkheid, een thuis vinden in de levens van de nieuwe generaties, dan zal, inderdaad, de dag van glorie en blijdschap aanbreken voor allen die nu nog lijden en verstoten zijn. Want ware Theosofie is ALTRUISME, en dat kunnen we niet vaak genoeg herhalen. Het is broederlijke liefde, wederzijdse hulp, onwankelbare toewijding aan de ‘waarheid’. Als mensen maar eenmaal beseffen dat hierin alleen het ware geluk gevonden kan worden, en nooit in rijkdom, bezittingen, of welke zelfzuchtige bevredigingen dan ook, dan zullen de donkere wolken optrekken en er zal een nieuwe mensheid op aarde geboren worden. Dan zal het GOUDEN TIJDPERK werkelijk aanbreken . . . “

The Masters

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

54 Pages | 6th Reprint, 1998 (originally published in 1912) | Soft cover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170591597.

Annie Besant was described as a ‘Diamond Soul’, for she had many brilliant facets to her character.The one silver thread, that ran through all her varied activities was her unswerving loyalty to the dictates of Truth as she saw it:

She (Truth) may lead me into the wilderness, yet I must follow her; she may strip me of all love, yet I must pursue her; though she slay me, yet will I trust in her; and I ask no other epitaph on my tomb but `She tried to follow Truth´.

One of the great Truths, that modern Theosophy has brought back to the attention of the world is the existence of the Masters of Wisdom. A Master is variously called an Adept, an Arhat, Rishi or Mahatma. These and similar other terms refer to some of the aspects of his (or hers) true being as ´Perfect Man´. He is a lifting force and necessary link in the chain of Cosmic Evolution.

In the Outer Court

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

160 Pages | Second edition, 2017 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170595037.

Spirituality never ages. This little volume contains lectures held in 1895, but which are as relevant today as then, if not more so. A Temple on a Mountain top is described. It is encircled by courts, quite similar to the concentric courtyards (prakāram) of a Hindu temple. Aspirants are climbing up the ‘Mountain of Evolution’ and waiting in the enclosure outside the Temple – ‘The Outer Court’. None are in the Outer Court save those who have definitely dedicated themselves to service. Much has to be accomplished in the Outer Court, classified by the author as purification, thought control, character building, spiritual alchemy and ‘On the Threshold’. These are to be practised simultaneously, sincerely and continuously.

Avatāra-s

By Annie Besant (1847 – 1933).

137 Pages | Reprinted in 2002 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593654.

Through immensely long ages or kalpā-s, climbing steadily the ladder of evolution, the ‘Liberated Ones’ merge with eternal life. Within them burns the flame of Love for all that exists. It is they who, from time to time, descend into manifested forms (avatāra-s) to accelerate the course of evolution. So says Annie Besant (1847 – 1933), who had a profound knowledge of Hindu religious philosophy and tradition, while answering the question: what is an avatāra? in a series of four lectures delivered in 1899.

The Mirror of Life and Death

By Laurence J. Bendit (1898-1974).

199 Pages | Published in 2004, third reprint | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 0835675548.

The book suggests according to its author, that the basis of life is in timeless and universal Being, which becomes projected for evolutionairy purposes into the space-time world of existence. Existence can only be significant when seen against its root in pure Being. Birth, growth, decay, death and, if tradition be true, rebirth, are part of a single process. They are moreover, not separate parts, but each one co-exists all the time with the others, even when one aspect predominates.

Het Goddelijk Plan – Menswording en Evolutie (2 Delen)

Door Geoffrey A. Barborka (1897-1982).

697 Pagina’s | Uitgegeven in 1973 | Hardcover | Uitgeverij der Theosofische Vereniging in Nederland | ISBN: 9789061750321.

English Original: The Divine Plan | Sixth reproduction 2015 | Hardcover | Theosophical Publishing House Adyar | ISBN: 8170591848.

In Het Goddelijk Plan wordt de lezer stap voor stap binnen geleid in de belangrijkste en meest interessante leringen van de Theosofie. Men kan dit boek beschouwen als een gids voor een diepgaande studie in het magnum opus van Mevrouw Blavatsky, De Geheime Leer; ook wordt het verband tussen De Geheime Leer en De Mahatma Brieven aan A.P. Sinnett, De Stem van de Stilte en de werken van T. Subba Row duidelijk naar voren gebracht.

Leerstukken betreffende cyclische evolutie, reïncarnatie en de toestanden na de dood, de opbouw van het heelal en de constitutie van de mens, inwijding, enzovoorts worden stuk voor stuk uitvoerig behandeld en vervolgens wordt de onderlinge samenhang ervan aangetoond. Talloze ‘moeilijke woorden’ – voor velen een struikelblok – worden op voor ieder begrijpelijke wijze verklaard. Alleen al door deze woordverklaringen is Het Goddelijk Plan een kostbaar bezit voor iedere serieuze bestudeerder van de Theosofie.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Geoffrey A. Barborka bezocht de “Theosophical School” en daarna de “Theosophical Universiteit” in Point Loma (Californië). Gedurende zijn studietijd kreeg hij volop de gelegenheid zich te verdiepen in de werken van Mevrouw Blavatsky, toen hij als letterzetter meewerkte aan de Engelse uitgave van Isis Ontsluierd, De Geheime Leer, De Sleutel tot Theosofie en De Stem van de Stilte. In zijn lezingen, tijdschriftenartikelen en boeken tracht Barborka steeds iets van zijn intense belangstelling en liefde voor de theosofische leringen, zoals deze in hun oorspronkelijke vorm door Mevrouw Blavatsky verbreid werden, aan anderen over te dragen. Daarbij verstaat hij de kunst deze vaak ingewikkelde en moeilijk te doorgronden leringen als het ware zichzelf te laten verklaren, zonder er een eigen mening of interpretatie aan toe te voegen. Andere boeken waardoor G.A. Barborka grote bekendheid kreeg zijn onder andere H.P. Blavatsky, Tibet and Tulku (over de paranormale gaven van Mevrouw Blavatsky), The Pearl of the Orient (over de Bhagavad Gita) en The Christmas Story (over de occulte en mystieke betekenis van het kerstfeest).

The Radiant Child

By Thomas Armstrong.

203 Pages | A Quest Original, first published in 1985, second printing 1988 | Soft cover| Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606007.

Thomas Armstrong believes, that children come into this life radiating and reflecting the mystery of creation; that their spiritual nature as well as their basic instincts are close to the surface of their awareness. Unfortunately, for most part, parents, teachers, and child therapists have not recognized this delightfully useful aspect of the childhood psyche. The author notes, that this hidden sight of youthful consciousness has been noticed and appreciated primarily by poets, mystics, authors of fairy tales, and world mythologists. These folks identify with the wonder-child, the divine child, the child-god, the child hero. This practical guide is heavily documented with case-histories of ‘radiant’ experiences, the reality of which is supported by telling testimony from the author’s peers.

From page 101:

” The child is potential future . . . the ‘child’ paves the way for a future change of personality. In the individuation process it anticipates the figure, that comes from the synthesis of conscious and unconscious elements in the personality. It is therefore a symbol, which unites the opposites; a mediator, a bringer of healing; that is, one who makes whole. “
