Madame Blavatsky and the New Age Pt. 1


opensourcebuddhism asked:

by Joel Shanahan through Professor Rev. Dr. James Kenneth Powell II, opensourcebuddhism.org This piece chronicles the life and thought of Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, named by some as founder of the New Age. From crystal balls, tarot readings to heresy trials, exile and establishing the Theosophical Movement at the turn of the 19th century, Madame Blavatsky had it going on. With her later tutorials for Col. Henry Steel Olcott, she was also instrumental in the development of Buddhism in America and with him, even the Buddhist flag, based on the color of the auras of her alleged Tibetan Secret Masters!

    @metalicdragon80 yeaht that would be all fine and dandy if blavastdky didnt admit to being an occultist so right off the bat her words are not trustworthy and should be looked upon with extreme caution

    @kylekelly123 , thats the point i was trying to make.. just because someone choose to seek spiritual knowledge , doesnt mean u make them out to be bad, just cuz other exploited her ideas , to advance themselves,,, not her fault …. religion has always brought excuses for ppl to play use against eachother ,,, doenst mean we stop seeking spiritual knowledge ..

  7. kylekelly123

    @metalicdragon80 and u somehow believe spirituality and politics do not go hand in hand? ask hitler or bush or even obama if they believe spirituality do not influence their policies

    shes a lier, what she did was take old books and journals that where never published or printed, the ambition for money and fame did not exist to these older ocult writers,,and she copied and rearrange and added to thse writings purposely…these old book where never meant to be seen by the masses of ppl and she knew that, so most everything that written in her books is to confuse you.,.she was a big part of the ushering in of the aquarian age where the hermaphrodite men will be born

    I don’t accept words, written by men to teach me what they have no clue about. Tribal customs such as baptism, circumcision, the communion. All of these are “customs”and all were practiced in mithraism one thousand years before Christianity, as well as the last supper.. I have found what I was looking for 48yrs, and it wasn’t found in mans book.. I discovered it isn’t found looking outside, it was always in me. No one could deceive me or alter what he put in me.

    it’s not needing a book to teach you love but you go to it to remind you why do you need your parents to raise you. even when you become of age and able to raise yourself you still reflect on what you’ve been taught

    I have learned that it isn’t me who is in control, that he is in fact steering my life, and he has blessed me with a happiness few know today.
    I am so filled with Father, that I don’t care for anything else, not cars nor woman nor money nor health, nothing. My love for Father is so great in me, that I just don’t have the other desires or any room left in me. And because of this I am beyond words to describe my Happiness, my feeling of completeness. I require nothing more, I have all I need

  12. jeddah91

    Why would anyone with intelligence accept that Father needs an intermediary to forgive?
    Even my biological Father didn’t require this. In fact he would have punished for doing so.
    When I err it is against my creator,, so why would I ask forgiveness for transgressing through another man? If I insulted my mother, I would ask my sister to forgive me? I don’t get it? Father showers me with Love, when he is in me, and I have found from very early age that he is always in me, always guiding me.

  13. jeddah91

    When I look at history, even recent history, I see man fighting and killing for God, because of the differences of mans doctrines.
    I don’t get it?
    If I want to speak with Father, he is with me always free, no doctrines, no religion, no other man between us. I simply don’t require faith when I have a personal relationship with my creator. Father has assured me I can speak with him directly in my heart, my thoughts, my desire, when they are devoted to him. He has blessed me beyond measure

  14. jeddah91

    Why does an intelligent self ware being “man” feel he needs a book, or another man to teach him to Love his creator? This baffles me.
    Do you assume Father is religious. Who invented religions that offer no proof only words in a book written by a man.
    I don’t get it? I have always spoken with my Father, Love him unconditionally, and I can feel him in me.
    I speak with him at will, He loves me forever, and he understands because he created me that I will err as long as i am in flesh.

    At least the “fallen angel”, has’nt been bombarded with the ultimate divide and conquer concept….wich is allegiance to one religion.
    It had the room to play with things, free to investigate all written concepts. Free to Experience life in a wider spectrum than the village’s teamcolours…er sorry reignin’ faith.
    Never affraid of what it’s “friends’ had to say etc.
    I that lies the fullest respect towards all of creation!
    Thank you very much!

    With love from Holland

    p.s. T.P.S. books rule!
