Adolescence

PHYSICAL BODY – LECTURE 3 of 10

Helping Teenagers Grow Up in this Troubled World—Daughter Wants to Leave Home at 18 to Join a Semi-Religious Community Group—A Plan for Youth—An Esoteric Explanation of Drug Abuse

The first step in the study of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings is not the “quest for knowledge,” but the preparation of the self to “receive knowledge.” This is the first obstacle faced, where most truth-seekers make their first mistake. With their eyes turned toward the heavens, they rush ecstatically toward “illumination,” only to stumble, like Thales, “into the ditch of their own unprepared-ness.”

The desire for wisdom is in itself the most commendable of human endeavors, but in too many cases this desire comes to nothing through ignorance and misunderstanding. We must not only earnestly and unselfishly desire truth, we must create within our own nature the ethical environment suitable for the reception of spiritual knowledge. Before it is possible to perceive clearly the mysteries of the inner life, one must develop the faculties for this perception.

.
THE FOUR NATURES—LIVING AND LEARNING

This unique lecture pamphlet series explores the four natures of the human body: the physical, the vital, the emotional, and the mental. These lectures were a compilation of Mr. Hall’s own essays, articles and published works, exploring his personal beliefs about the connections between the inner life and the outer person. They are aimed at helping the reader gain an in-depth understanding of the four natures of the human being and the human body. All four aspects must work in harmony to enrich the inner life.

These pamphlets are now available individually at a reduced price of $7.95 each.

Basic Ideas of Man: Series 2, Lecture 11 | The Levels of Knowledge

Movement of Consciousness From Ignorance to Wisdom

“To sum up: the Platonic theory is that education should be primarily moral and spiritual—not mechanical or utilitarian—having for its ultimate end the ascent of the soul to the Supreme Good; that the specific object of education should be the development of moral and intellectual character; that a purely mental education, severed from a moral, and having no reference to true spiritual culture, is not only worthless but positively deleterious.” — THOMAS M. JOHNSON, “Platonic Theory of Education” in Bibliotheca Platonica, Vol. I

Basic Ideas of Man: Series 2, Lecture 6 | The Philosophy & Psychology of Reincarnation

Movement of Psyche in Time

Buddha replied: “It is because the ignorant cling to names, signs and ideas; as their minds move along these channels they feed on multiplicities of objects and fall into the notion of an ego-soul and what belongs to it; they make discriminations of good and bad among appearances and cling to the agreeable. As they thus cling there is a reversion to ignorance, and karma born of greed, anger and folly; is accumulated. As the accumulation of karma goes on they become imprisoned in a cocoon of discrimination and are thenceforth unable to free themselves from the round of birth and death.” — Goddard, A Buddhist Bible

Birth of Buddha

When queen Maya reached the Lumbini garden, she wished to stop there. As she stood holding a bough of a Sala tree, the throes of birth came upon her. The Bodhisattva appeared from the right side of the mother and was received at once by the gods and then by men. He came down from their hands, took seven steps and explained. ‘I am the foremost of all. This is my last birth. I will cross the ocean of existence.”

Childhood

PHYSICAL BODY – LECTURE 2 of 10

The ‘Burn Out’ of Child Prodigies
— Children
— Children of Our Times
— Adopting Children
— Mother School of Comenius

The first step in the study of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings is not the “quest for knowledge,” but the preparation of the self to “receive knowledge.” This is the first obstacle faced, where most truth-seekers make their first mistake. With their eyes turned toward the heavens, they rush ecstatically toward “illumination,” only to stumble, like Thales, “into the ditch of their own unprepared-ness.”

The desire for wisdom is in itself the most commendable of human endeavors, but in too many cases this desire comes to nothing through ignorance and misunderstanding. We must not only earnestly and unselfishly desire truth, we must create within our own nature the ethical environment suitable for the reception of spiritual knowledge. Before it is possible to perceive clearly the mysteries of the inner life, one must develop the faculties for this perception.

THE FOUR NATURES—LIVING AND LEARNING

This unique lecture pamphlet series explores the four natures of the human body: the physical, the vital, the emotional, and the mental.

They are aimed at helping the reader gain an in-depth understanding of the four natures of the human being and the human body. All four aspects must work in harmony to enrich the inner life.

Consulting The Oracle of Delphi

While the tripod and its base differ from the description of several authors, an attempt has been made to follow as closely as possible the symbolism concealed within the allegory of the oracle. The three legs symbolize the periods of time controlled by Apollo, the past, the present, and the future. So the Delphic Oracle, as the spiritual nature of man, is suspended over the abyss of oblivion by three golden threads of Divine power.

Double-Headed Eagle

This ancient emblem of equilibrium consisted of an androgynous body surmounted by two heads, one male and the other female, wearing a single imperial crown. That being alone is perfect in which all opposites are reconciled, and this state of perfection is appropriately typified by the two heads of equal dignity. Hence the double-headed eagle is reserved as the emblem of completion, for it signifies the Philosopher’s Stone, the ultimate soul condition, and that absolute and transcendent perfection which arises only from the fullest unfoldment of the latent potentialities within the individual.

Education Reform
—Revolution or Revelation

—Is a University Education Useful for Spiritual Life?

The first step in the study of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings is not the “quest for knowledge,” but the preparation of the self to “receive knowledge.” This is the first obstacle faced, where most truth-seekers make their first mistake. With their eyes turned toward the heavens, they rush ecstatically toward “illumination,” only to stumble, like Thales, “into the ditch of their own unprepared-ness.”

The desire for wisdom is in itself the most commendable of human endeavors, but in too many cases this desire comes to nothing through ignorance and misunderstanding. We must not only earnestly and unselfishly desire truth, we must create within our own nature the ethical environment suitable for the reception of spiritual knowledge. Before it is possible to perceive clearly the mysteries of the inner life, one must develop the faculties for this perception.

Emerson and Universal Mind (e-Book)

EMERSON AND UNIVERSAL MIND
by Richard G. Geldard

“A brilliant, forceful, cogent, eloquent and personal brief for the essential validity of the great Neoplatonic doctrine of ideas, and a wholly believable effort to place Emerson firmly in that tradition.”

ROBERT D. RICHARDSON
Author of “Emerson, The Mind on Fire”

_______________________________

In 1870, the new young president of Harvard College, Charles Eliot, in an effort to expand and strengthen the study of philosophy, established what he called the University Lectures and invited Ralph Waldo Emerson, among others, to give a series of eighteen lectures of his own choosing. For Emerson, this was an opportunity to summarize his life-long vision of Idealism, a vision which had formed the central set of principles in what came to be known as New England Transcendentalism.

Emerson’s experience as part of this course was hardly comfortable. He was under tremendous pressure to work quickly and to fit his material into the overall series of lectures. As it turned out, his proposed series of eighteen became seven and the material itself was not a survey of world philosophy but a summation of Emerson’s theories on the nature of the mind.

Over the years scholars have tended to minimize, even to the extent of total neglect, what remains of these late lectures, assuming that Emerson’s intellectual and expressive powers had diminished, rendering this material irrelevant. However, his good friend, editor, and biographer James Elliot Cabot, whose task it was to gather Emerson’s papers into some order, said this of Harvard’s invitation to lecture: “Emerson welcomed the proposal as an opportunity for taking up and completing his sketches of the ‘Natural History of the Intellect,’ which he appears to have regarded as the chief task of his life.”

Given Cabot’s observation here, this commentary intends to give serious attention to what remains of these lectures in order to fill a valuable gap in Emerson’s attention to the laws of the mind and by extension also provides a more accurate and complete assessment of Transcendentalism as an important contribution to the history and influence of American philosophy.

Fable of Cupid & Psyche (e-Book)

By Thomas Taylor (Translator). With an Introductory Preface by Manly P. Hall

NEW PDF e-Book

Thomas Taylor published his translation from the Latin of The Metamorphosis by of Apuleius in 1822. The most important part of this was the fable of Cupid and Psyche, in which Apuleius gives an account of his being initiated in the mysteries of Isis and Osiris

In the fable Eros, or Cupid, is introduced as the Divine Principle in man and Psyche as the human soul. The morality of this fable is profound and exalted. Sacred and profane love are contrasted and those inner parts of human nature associated with this mystery are beautifully explained. As the plot of the story develops it is obvious that the supporting philosophical doctrines are derived from the secret teachings of the Mystery Schools. The truths involved were then perpetuated by later sects who sought to restore and preserve the older wisdom.

To the modern psychologist who has become aware of the alchemy of human emotions, the account given by Apuleius should be of extraordinary interest. The author points out that the sacred mystery of love has been generally profaned and associated with mortal passion and that the perversion of the greatest good is the greatest evil. The human being must sometime face the challenge of his own spiritual needs; by purifying his own emotions he preserves not only himself but the mortal world in which he lives.

In this photographic facsimile edition the reader will benefit greatly from Taylor’s introduction which presents the true meaning of the fable in a simple and understandable manner. Included in this volume are A Poetical Paraphrase on the Speech of Diotima, in the Banquet of Plato and Hymns to Venus, Love, Neptune, etc.

This electronic e-book edition is fully bookmarked for easy navigation.

About the Translator | Thomas Taylor (1758-1835) was a scholar without honor in his own time. Most of his books have long been out of print, but in recent years there has been a strong revival of interest in his writings. In 1969 a definitive work, Thomas Taylor the Platonist, appeared as Vol. LXXXVIII of the Bollingen series (Princeton University Press). Admirers of Taylor have said that other scholars may had had more Greek but less understanding of those sublime doctrines which he both translated and interpreted.This PRS Edition features an Introductory Preface by Manly P. Hall, and the text appears in the original 17th century typeface, with spelling indicative of the period.

Hand of the Mysteries

The original drawings from which this plate was taken is designated the hand of the philosopher which is extended to those who enter into the mysteries. When the disciple of the Great Art first beholds this hand, it is closed, and he must discover a method of opening it before the mysteries contained therein may be revealed. In alchemy the hand signifies the formula for the preparation of the tincture physicorum. The fish is mercury and the flame-bounded sea in which it swims is sulfur, while each of the fingers bears the emblem of a Divine Agent through the combined operations of which the great work is accomplished.
