Brief Life Chronology


H P Blavatsky’s Life

In More Detail


Theosophy isn’t a Religion,

so what is it then?


What is the Secret Doctrine?

Although H P Blavatsky wrote loads

of other stuff, this is the big one.


Where did H P Blavatsky

get her information?


Origins of the Universe





Remembering Past Lives

Great fun & very interesting

but mind how you go



If we’ve lived before,

Why can’t we remember it?


H P Blavatsky on

Past Life Memory


More from H P Blavatsky on

Remembering Past Lives


Can you call up learning

 from a past life?

You probably know more than you think you do



Reincarnation Yes!

But can you outlive the stars?


Carpe Diem

Seize the Day

Wasted Opportunities in this Life

Limitations Next Time Round.


The Way you Tackle your Life

The Way Karma Tackles you



If our Physical Bodies are renewed over a

seven year period, how is it that we can

still recognize ourselves in the mirror?



Evolution – Theosophy Style

You have to go down into a world of 

experience before you can move up



Beings above us

Beings below us

We’re quite high up but we’re not in the top division.

Promotion is a long way off but the

good news is that there’s no relegation.


We are the fifth mass reincarnation of the

Human Race in the current Cosmic Era.

Two more to go


Then make it better. It’s a learning process


People and Progress

Evolution is not automatic; we all need to work at it



Without Karma

The Universe would fall over


More from H P Blavatsky on Karma


Most religions & philosophies say “Let it go” but it’s not easy


Karmic Accounts

Bad News – Don’t open one.


Physical Body and six others ?

Yes, we all operate at 7 levels


Astral Bodies or Doppelgangers

By H P Blavatsky

H P Blavatsky offers explanations for

phenomena such as apparitions and ghosts

Lentil burgers, a thousand press ups before breakfast and

Tekels Park

Camberley, Surrey, England GU15 - 2LF


Tekels Park to be Sold to a Developer

Concerns are raised about the fate of the wildlife as

The Spiritual Retreat, Tekels Park in Camberley,

Surrey, England is to be sold to a developer


Tekels Park is a 50 acre woodland park, purchased

 for the Adyar Theosophical Society in England in 1929.

In addition to concern about the park, many are

 worried about the future of the Tekels Park Deer

as they are not a protected species.


Many feel that the sale of a sanctuary 

for wildlife to a developer can only mean 

disaster for the park’s animals


Confusion as the Theoversity moves out of 

Tekels Park to Southampton, Glastonbury & 

Chorley in Lancashire while the leadership claim

that the Theosophical Society will carry on using 

Tekels Park despite its sale to a developer


Anyone planning a “Spiritual” stay at the

Tekels Park Guest House should be aware of the sale.


Theosophy talks of a compassionate attitude

to animals and the sale of the Tekels Park

sanctuary for wildlife to a developer has

dismayed many Theosophists


No need for a Diploma in Finance and

even someone with a Diploma in Astral Travel

will know that this is a bad time economically

to sell Tekels Park

Quotes from the Writings of

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky


Blavatsky Quotation


That which is to be shunned is pain not yet come. The past cannot be changed or amended; that which belongs to the experience of the present cannot and should  not be shunned; but alike to be shunned are disturbing anticipations or fears of  the future, and every act or impulse that may cause present or future pain to ourselves or others.

Practical Occultism, Page 87


Blavatsky Quotation


Perfection, to be fully such, must be born out of imperfection, the incorruptible must grow out of the corruptible, having the latter as its vehicle and basis and contrast

The Secret Doctrine , Volume 2, Page 100


Blavatsky Quotation


It is only by the attractive force of the contrasts that the two opposites — Spirit and Matter — can be cemented together on Earth, and, smelted in the fire of self-conscious experience and suffering, find themselves wedded in Eternity.

The Secret Doctrine , Volume 2, Page 108


Blavatsky Quotation


Strength to step forward is the primary need of him who has chosen his path. Where is this to be found? Looking round, it is not hard to see where other men find their strength. Its source is profound conviction.

Practical Occultism, Page 67


Blavatsky Quotation


It is the motive, and the motive alone, which makes any exercise of power become black, malignant, or white, beneficent Magic. It is impossible to employ spiritual forces if there is the slightest tinge of selfishness remaining in the operator .... The powers and forces of animal nature can equally be used by the selfish and revengeful, as by the unselfish and the all-forgiving; the powers and forces of spirit lend themselves only to the perfectly pure in heart — and this is Divine Magic.

Practical Occultism, Page 7


Blavatsky Quotation


Finite reason agrees with science, and says: “There is no God”. But, on the other hand, our Ego, that which lives and thinks and feels independently of us in our mortal casket, does more than believe. It knows that there exists a God in nature, for the sole and invincible Artificer of all lives in us as we live in Him. No dogmatic faith or exact science is able to uproot that intuitional feeling inherent in man, when he has once fully realised it in himself.

Isis Unveiled, Volume 1, Page 36


Blavatsky Quotation


It may be a pleasant dream to attempt to conceive of the beauties of the spirit world; but the time can be spent more profitably in a study of the spirit itself, and it is not necessary that the subject for study should be in the spirit world.

Modern Panarion Page 70


Blavatsky Quotation


Physical existence is subservient to the spiritual, and all physical improvement and progress are only the auxiliaries of spiritual progress, without which there could be no physical progress.

Modern Panarion Page 78


Blavatsky Quotation


Mankind — the majority at any rate — hates to think for itself. It resents as an insult the humblest invitation to step for a moment outside the old well-beaten tracks and, judging for itself, to enter into a new path in some fresh direction.

The Secret Doctrine , Volume 3, Page 14


Blavatsky Quotation


Even ignorance is better than Head-learning with no Soul-wisdom to illuminate and guide it.

The Voice of the Silence, Page 43
