25 januari 2019

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. "
