It is a well written and interesting story. Then there is the pralaya or death of the individual man. There is no other pathway for you individually than the pathway leading ever inwards towards your own inner god. The dharmakaya vesture is so pure and holy, and indeed so high, that the one possessing the dharmakaya or who is in it, is virtually out of all touch with anything inferior to himself. Along the way he falls in love with a cloning bio-engineer who seeks the clone Zeb has helped to escape. The same idea is found in 1 Corinthians 6:11 and Revelation 7:14.
Philosophy is one phase of a triform method of understanding the nature of nature, of universal nature, and of its multiform and multifold workings, and philosophy cannot be separated from the other two phases science and religion , if we wish to gain a true and complete picture of things as they are in themselves. Mara's suit floods with cushioning gel. When that state is ended the nirmanakaya ends. A moment only, and the light and glory Faded away, and the disconsolate shore Stood lonely as before; And the wild roses of the promontory Around me shuddered in the wind, and shed Their petals of pale red. The Jewish philosophy, as found in the Qabbalah which is the esoteric tradition of the Jews, teaches that man is divided into four parts: neshamah, ruah, nefesh, and guf.
Doubtless mere physical phenomena have their place in study, but they are on the frontier, on the outskirts — the superficialities — of occultism. Philosophy is that aspect of the human consciousness which is correlative, and which seeks the bonds of union among things and exposes them, when found, as existing in the manifold and diverse forms of natural processes and the so-called laws which demonstrate their existence. This last use of the word, while correct enough, is hardly to be recommended because apt to introduce confusion, especially in Occidental minds with our extraordinary tendency to take generalizations for concrete realities. Then, thirdly, there is the terrestrial or planetary pralaya. This word is always placed at the beginning of any scripture or prayer that is considered of unusual sanctity. Los programas del republicanismo moderno, pre- y postabsolutista de Marsiglio de Padua y Maquiavelo a Locke, Rousseau, Thomas Paine, Kant y Robespierre , se presentaron sin apenas excepciones como una especie de palingenesis de la libertad republicana de los antiguos particularmente de Roma y Esparta, y tambien, algunos--la extrema izquierda--, de Atenas.
The Secret Doctrine by H. Our earth-globe is the fourth and lowest of all the manifest seven globes of our earth-chain. The story flowed very well, but the ending was lacking. This is the case with every sun or star, with every planet, and with every moon of every planet. It is obvious that Origen's manner of expressing his views is a more or less faithful but distorted reflection of the teaching of the esoteric philosophy.
But in the theosophical philosophy, the word psychology is used to mean something very different and of a far nobler character: we might call it pneumatology, or the science or the study of spirit and its rays, because all the inner faculties and powers of man ultimately spring from his spiritual nature. It should not be forgotten that the humanity of today forms a component element or stage or degree in the hierarchy of this our planetary chain. Personality comes from the Latin word persona, which means a mask, through which the actor, the spiritual individuality, speaks. Sun in Sanskrit is surya, and the adjective from this is saurya: hence, the saurya pralaya or the pralaya of the solar system. For the bodhisattva, although standing on the threshold of nirvana and seeing and understanding its ineffable glory and peace and rest, nevertheless retains his consciousness in the worlds of men, in order to consecrate his vast faculties and powers to the service of all that is.
When is a person not really a person? The countdown skips instantly to zero. It is also the state of the monadic entities in the period that intervenes between minor manvantaras or rounds of a planetary chain; and more fully so between each seven-round period or Day of Brahma, and the succeeding day or new kalpa of a planetary chain. The theosophical student should be very careful in distinguishing the technical meanings that pertain to several words which in popular and mistaken usage are often employed interchangeably, as for example preexistence, metempsychosis, transmigration, reincarnation, reimbodiment, rebirth, metensomatosis, palingenesis. She doesn't want to but she does, and the memory blindfolds her and muzzles her and plugs her ears so she can hear nothing but Osana's voice on that final night. When a theosophist speaks of nature, unless he limits the term to the physical world, he never means the physical world alone, but the vast reaches of universal kosmos and more particularly the inner realms, the causal factors of the boundless All. It may be possible in popular usage at times to call the state of dormancy by the name of pralaya in a very limited and particular sense; but pralaya really means disintegration and disappearance, like that of death. It is the reflection in matter of the individuality; but being a material thing it can lead us downwards, although it is in essence a reflection of the highest.
Men's emotional thoughts are vagrant, wandering, uncertain, lacking precision, without positive direction, and feebly governed. The planetary spirits watch over, guide, and lead the hosts of evolving entities inferior to themselves during the various rounds of a planetary chain. Blavatsky in this connection, in her Theosophical Glossary under this same head: As used in Occultism, the term denotes the range or extent of some state of consciousness, or of the perceptive power of a particular set of senses, or the action of a particular force, or the state of matter corresponding to any of the above. I found myself wanting to keep reading to see what happened next. A human fetus, according to palingenesis, progressed through the stages of fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, and mammal before arriving at a fully formed human being. Every planetary spirit therefore, wherever existent, in those far past aeons of kosmic time was a man or a being equivalent to what we humans on earth call man.
Fascism distinguishes itself by being the only ideology that focuses strongly on the revolution in its myth, or as Griffin puts it: the mythical horizons of the fascist mentality do not extend beyond this first stage. The term psychology ought really to connote the study of the inner intermediate economy of man, and the interconnection of his principles and elements or centers of energy or force — what the man really is inwardly. Our own earth-chain is composed of seven or twelve globes, of which only one, our earth, is visible on this our earth plane to our physical sense apparatus, because that apparatus is builded or rather evolved to cognize this earth plane and none other. This promise is not made exclusively by fascists: other political ideologies also incorporate some palingenetic aspects in their party programs, since politicians almost always promise to improve the situation. But it is perilous both to sanity and to health to attempt to force the development of these prematurely, and unless the training and discipline be done under the watchful and compassionate eye of a genuine occult teacher who knows what he is about.
