What Music Teaches Us About Presenting Theosophy

Music teaches us some wonderful things about life, brotherhood, and learning. It teaches us how to enrich the legacy of our Founders by an attitude of reverence within progression. How can we move Theosophy forward and communicate its message in a contemporary mode? While fully revering our Founders, we do not wish to remain stuck to a strict adherence to their original words, or rather, a literal interpretation of those words. So to understand the way forward, we have to go back to Bach—in a metaphorical sense, of course.

Mysticism and Religion

Mysticism is the interior heart and soul of religion just as, conversely, religion is the body and clothing of mysticism, its outwards and external aspect. The former is an entirely personal and private experience to know God (by whatever name) directly. The latter sets up God as an external divine power to enter into a relationship with. Therefore, the religious man tends to pray, whereas those mystically inclined prefer to meditate.

The Janus Faces of Mind and Brain: Where the Perennial Philosophy Meets Neuroscience

Since time immemorial, the sages of all cultures have taught that Mind per se is unitary, but it can function in two radically opposing yet, ideally, complementary, ways. This central teaching has now been endorsed from the evidence furnished by modern science. This article demonstrates how this has come about.

What is Mind?

The perennial philosophy disseminated through the teaching of all ages and epochs (e.g., Vedanta and Buddhism in the East, Qabbalah and Rosicrucianism in the West) has ever maintained that the very ‘stuff’ of our universe is Consciousness. It is the primary ‘Element’, the ground of our being. Mind may then be regarded as a generic term embracing the sum of states of Consciousness, grouped under Thought, Feeling, and Will.

The Profane and the Sacred

The Creation is an oratorio written by Joseph Haydn (1732–1809), which depicts and rejoices in the creation of the world as described in the Book of Genesis. The Chorus, The Heavens Are Telling opens with the words: ‘The heavens are telling the glory of God, The wonder of his work displays the firmament.’
