2015: Psychedelics, Consciousness, and the Birth of Civilization

I’ve been very lucky; I feel I’ve been blessed; I’ve lived a blessed life. I’m grateful to the universe for giving me the chance to live this life. But why am I here? Why are you here? Why are we all here on planet earth? Why are we conscious? What are our lives for? In answer to such questions, I can’t offer any facts. I can only give you my view, which is that this world is a theatre of experience and that consciousness is fundamentally nonphysical and one of the driving forces of the universe like gravity or electricity. My guess is that consciousness has chosen to manifest in physical form and perhaps has invested in a very long process of manifes­tation on the earth—a four-and-a-half-billion-year process using evolution.

EMERALD TABLET II: The Hall of Amenti

Deep in Earth’s heart lie the Halls of Amenti, far ‘neath the islands of sunken Atlantis, Halls of the Dead and halls of the living, bathed in the fire of the infinite ALL. Far in a past time, lost in the space-time, the Children of Light looked down on the world. Seeing the children of men in their bondage, bound by the force that came from beyond. Knew they that only by freedom from bondage could man ever rise from the Earth to the Sun. Down they descended and created bodies, taking the semblance of men as their own. The Masters of everything said after their forming: “We are they who were formed from the space-dust, partaking of life from the infinite ALL; living in the world as children of men, like and yet unlike the children of men.” Then for a dwelling place, far ‘neath the earth crust, […] Read More

1997: Star Nation: TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES

The following information was received between October 15-17, 1995, in a council with the Ascended Masters. In this council Wolf asked for clarity and guidance for this time. Present at this council were Kuthumi, Kuan Yin, Hilarian, Deganawida, Serapis Bay, and The White Calf Woman. There were other entities present as well, including those from the other dimensional realities and the worlds beyond our sun. Those beings who shared information in this meeting did so because they wished to contribute to the body of knowledge that will help hold the space for the preservation of human consciousness in the Universe, thus allowing for our ascension, or graduation into the higher octave of the Christos. The specific personalities of the individual beings present and their personal thoughts and visions through the Holographic time/space continuum are irrelevant. This body of information represents, rather, the collective thoughts of all those present in […] Read More

1888: “Esoteric Buddhism” And The “Secret Doctrine”

CORRESPONDENCE In reference to various remarks concerning “Esoteric Buddhism” which appear in the course of your new work, “The Secret Doctrine,” I beg to call your attention to some passages on the same subject which appeared on former occasions in the Theosophist at a time when that magazine was edited by yourself. In the Secret Doctrine you speak of Esoteric Buddhism as a work with “a very unfortunate title,” and in reference to a passage in my preface, emphasising the novelty for European readers of the teachings then given out, you say the error must have crept in through inadvertence. In the last number of LUCIFER you discuss the same point in a note appended to a correspondent’s letter. Permit me to remind you of an editorial note, evidently from your own pen, in the February Theosophist, 1884. This is in reply to an objection raised by Mr. W. […] Read More

1890: Modern Apostles and Pseudo-Messiahs

There has probably never been a period within our recollection more given to the production of “great missions” and missionaries than the present. The movement began, apparently, about a hundred years ago. Before that, it would have been unsafe to make such claims as are common in the present day. But the revelators of that earlier time were few and far between compared to those who are to be found now, for they are legion. The influence of one or two was powerful; of others, whose beliefs were dangerously akin to a common form of lunacy – next to nothing. All will recognize a wide difference between Anne Lee, whose followers flourish at the present time, and Joanna Southcote, whose hallucination long ago, and in her own day, excited smiles from rational people. The venerable Shaker lady, the “Woman” of Revelation XII, taught some truths amid confused ideas as […] Read More
