CHAPTER II HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS Students who have not yet experienced the buddhic consciousness--consciousness in the intuitional world--frequently ask us to describe it. Efforts have been made in this direction, and many references to this consciousness and its characteristics are to be found scattered through our literature; yet the seeker after knowledge finds these unsatisfactory, and we cannot wonder at it. The truth is that all description is necessarily and essentially defective; it is impossible in physical words to give more than the merest hint of what this higher consciousness is, for the physical brain is incapable of grasping the reality. Those who have read Mr. Hinton's remarkable books on the fourth dimension will remember how he tries to explain to us our own limitations with regard to higher dimensions, by picturing for us with much careful detail the position of an entity whose senses could work in two dimensions only. He proves that to such a being the simplest actions of our world must be incomprehensible. A creature who has no sense of what we call depth or thickness could never see any terrestrial object as it really is; he could observe only a section of it, and would therefore obtain absolutely wrong impressions about even the commonest objects of everyday life, while our powers of motion and of action would be utterly incomprehensible to him. The difficulties which we encounter in trying to understand the phenomena even of the astral world are precisely similar to those which Mr. Hinton supposes to be experienced by his two-dimensional entity; but when we try to raise our thoughts to the intuitional .world we have to face a state of existence which is lived in no less than six dimensions, if we are to continue at...
Eternal Yoga is a way of discovering our eternal nature.
Author: Virochana Khalsa
Publisher: Books of Light Pub
Eternal Yoga is a way of discovering our eternal nature. In this practice, we go above the head to aid this discovery, while maintaining a continuum with the body. Through the success of Eternal Yoga, you will understand what your body, soul, and spirit is-beyond any doubt!These practices teach us how to cultivate the non-dual awareness absolutely vital for success on the spiritual path, and to continue forward within the tantras.After an introduction into the source of these teachings, a thorough explanation of key understandings and terminology is given, including the various aspects of a spiritual discipline. The initiatory techniques of Eternal Yoga are then presented. A chapter on Developing a Body of Light has further explanations, including traps to be careful of. The Rays of Light, as a means of soul development rounds out the teaching, along with a chapter on establishing daily practice.
To study the workings of Karma on the line suggested by the Master, we must gain a clear conception of the three lower planes, or regions, of the universe, and of the Principles related to them.
Author: Annie Besant
To study the workings of Karma on the line suggested by the Master, we must gain a clear conception of the three lower planes, or regions, of the universe, and of the Principles related to them. The names given to them indicate the state of the consciousness working on them. In this a diagram may help us, showing the planes with the Principles related to them, and the vehicles in which a conscious entity may visit them. In practical Occultism the student learns to visit these planes, and by his own investigations to transform theory into knowledge. The lowest vehicle, the Gross Body, serves the consciousness for its work on the physical plane, and in this the consciousness is limited within the capacities of the brain. The term Subtle Body covers a variety of astral bodies, respectively suitable to the varying conditions of the very complicated region indicated by the name psychic plane. On the devachanic plane there are two well-defined levels, the Form Level and the Formless Level; on the lower, consciousness uses an artificial body, the Mâyâvi Rûpa, but the term Mind Body seems suitable as indicating that the matter of which it is composed belongs to the plane of Manas. On the formless level the Causal Body must be used. Of the Buddhic plane it is needless to speak.

Cosmopsychology The Psychology of Humans as Spiritual Beings Cosmopsychology assumes that human beings are essentially spiritual beings who are multi-dimensional, composed of many parts and connected to many dimensions of the Cosmos. It has been defined as astrology, as the study of psychospiritual development, and as the psychology of extraterrestrial beings. Cosmopsychology is the study of the relationship between the mind and the Cosmos. Cosmopsychology refers both to the correspondences between the human mind and the external universe and to the growth or evolution of the mind as it moves to higher forms of consciousness. It examines those parts, links, and dimensions that are not found in traditional, academic psychology. Cosmopsychology provides insights into your personality and your destiny through the contributions of astrology, numerology, the I Ching, Jungs Analytical psychology, Hartmanns Ego psychology, Bernes Transactional Analysis, Assagiolis Psychosynthesis, Hermeticism, Idealism, New Thought, and the Perennial Philosophy. The mysteries of karma are laid out as they are found in the ancient Indian philosophy of Vedanta. Psychology was built on classical physics. Cosmopsychology is built on quantum physics, the holographic universe, string theory, M-theory, and F-theory. Physics has come full circle, returning to the science of vibrations and the philosophy of idealism as taught by Pythagoras, Socrates, and Plato. Everything is connected both spatially and temporally. At this deep level of Being, consciousness choices what manifests. Cosmopsychology encompasses the nature of consciousness, meditation, karma, and rebirth and examines their roles in Individuation, Self-Actualization, and Self-Realization.

Based on the notion that everyone has the potential to become a Buddha because the "essence" of Buddha is within us all, a modern-day mystic and spiritual teacher relates the different stages along the path to achieving this enlightenment. Original.
That is the lowest level at which the separateness is absolutely non-existent; in its
fullness the conscious unity with all belongs to the next plane – the nirvanic.
Suppose that all of us could develop the buddhic consciousness within ourselves

This book is merely a record of talks by Mr. Charles W. Leadbeater and myself on three famous books – books small in size but great in contents. We both hope that they will prove useful to aspirants, and even to those above that stage, since the talkers were older than the listeners, and had more experience in the life of discipleship.The talks were not given at one place only; we chatted to our friends at different times and places, chiefly at Adyar, London and Sydney. A vast quantity of notes were taken by the listeners. All that were available of these were collected and arranged. They were then condensed, and repetitions were eliminated.Unhappily there were found to be very few notes on The Voice of the Silence, Fragment I, so we have utilized notes made at a class held by our good colleague, Mr. Ernest Wood, in Sydney, and incorporated these into Bishop Leadbeater’s talks in that section. No notes of my own talks on this book were available; though I have spoken much upon it, those talks are not recoverable.None of these talks have been published before, except some of Bishop Leadbeater’s addresses to selected students on At the Feet of the Master. A book entitled Talks on At the Feet of the Master was published a few years ago, containing imperfect reports of some of these talks of his. That book will not be reprinted; the essential material in it finds its place here, carefully condensed and edited.May this book help some of our younger brothers to understand more of these priceless teachings. The more they are studied and lived, the more will be found in them.

Path of the Soul is an inspiring story of the spiritual unfoldment of Jesus as a man, a soul, and a spirit. In vivid detail, it reveals how Jesus was able to experience God as love, perform miracles, attain Christ consciousness, and ascend into the realm of pure light, wisdom, and love. Before Jesus became the way shower and messenger for the teachings of the Piscean Age, He was first and foremost a seeker of truth. Path of the Soul is a story of encouragement for all who are on a quest for universal truth and wisdom. It reveals how people progress from step to step and from one initiation to a higher initiation, regardless of their religion, nationality, ethnicity, or gender. In great detail, it explains how people can use the energies and forces streaming through the seven planes of earth to unfold, develop, and master successively higher states of mind and realization. You too can attain Christ Consciousness or buddhic Enlightenment. For you are a god-in-the-making with the potential to attain perfection and the inherent ability to serve as an agent of divine love, will, and purpose. This is the message of the way shower during these early days of the Age of Aquarius.
