Into the Mystic

He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven

William Butler Yeats

HAD I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and the half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Yeats and Mysticism

Yeats believed that one could invoke the elemental forces via meditation on symbols.

Having a history in the esoteric, and mysticism myself, I have ventured into further study of the Irish poet. My eye was curious about his book, Vision, in which he laid out his own kind of symbolism based largely in Theosophy, and the Vedas. Apparently also there were associations with members of the occult order, The Golden Dawn. All fascinating to me.

Now a smattering of where my mind has been.

 

The Coming of Fairies

Arthur Conan Doyle

Chapter VIII

The Theosophic View Of Fairies

Of all religious and philosophies in Western lands I know none save that ancient teaching now called Theosophy which has any place in it for elemental forms of life. Therefore, since we have established some sort of independent case for their existence, it is well that we should examine carefully what they teach and see how far it fits in with what we have been able to gather or to demonstrate.

There is no one who has a better right to speak upon the point than my co-worker, Mr. E. L. Gardner, since he is both the discoverer of the fairies and a considerable authority upon theosophic teaching. I am glad, therefore, to be able to include some notes from his pen.

“For the most part,” he writes, “amid the busy commercialism of modern times,

“. . . the fact of their existence has faded to a shadow, and a most delightful and charming field of nature study has too long been veiled. In this twentieth century there is promise of the world stepping out of some of its darker shadows. Maybe it is an indication that we are reaching the silver lining of the clouds when we find ourselves suddenly presented with actual photographs of these enchanting little creatures–relegated long since to the realm of the imaginary and fanciful.”

“Now, what are the fairies?

“First, it must be clearly understood that all that can be photographed must of necessity be physical. Nothing of a subtler order could in the nature of things affect the sensitive plate. So-called spirit photographs, for instance, imply necessarily a certain degree of materialization before the ‘form’ could come within the range even of the most sensitive of films. But well within our physical octave there are degrees of density that elude ordinary vision. Just as there are many stars in the heavens recorded by the camera that no human eye has ever seen directly. . .”

If this seems a bit fragmented it is.

And reading a bit of H.P. Blavatsky’s, The Key to Theosophy

In the same vein, yet not in the same body, there is Quantum Physics, and all those hypothesis’s. Here is one I recently mostly read, Interesting. I can go with the possibility of the matrix, chocolate still taste like chocolate, and if your tooth is bad, still hurts, feels real.

Buddhic Blast

150295_436285073087578_864627202_n

Happy Friday friends~ I am inspired by pictures and this one has taken me to the Buddhic plane.

Below is an excerpt from a document page on angelfire.com on the Buddhic Plane and it appears it source is Theosophy, Blavatsky and Leadbeater. It is a very long document but worth the read.

The Buddhic Plane is the Plane of Unity

*•.¸¸ ( ( ( ❤ ) ) ) ¸¸.•*

One whose consciousness works on the buddhic plane during meditation finds that although he is one with all the wonderful consciousness of the plane, yet there is a little circle of emptiness shutting him out from the rest. This little barrier is, of course, the causal body. In order that the buddhic vehicle shall be developed, even that must disappear. Then the man feels the reality of unobstructed Life in a way impossible to describe down here. Madame Blavatsky expressed the idea as a circle with its center everywhere and its circumference nowhere—a very beautiful and expressive description. Of course it is a paradox, but all things that can be said about these higher conditions must necessarily be paradoxical.

When the unity is fully realized the man feels, however paradoxical it may sound, as though his vehicle at that / level filled the whole of the plane, as though he could transfer his point of consciousness to any place within that plane and still be the center of the circle. It is an experience which is quite indescribable.

Deva

A deva in the metaphysics refers to any of the spiritual forces or beings behind nature. According to Theosophists Charles Webster Leadbeater and Alice A. Bailey, devas represent a separate evolution to that of humanity. The concept of devas as nature-spirits derives from the writings of Theosophist Geoffrey Hodson. It is believed by Theosophists that there are numerous different types of devas with a population in the millions performing different functions on Earth to help the ecology function better. It is asserted they can be observed by those whose third eyes have been activated.

In addition, it is believed by Theosophists that there are millions of devas living inside the Sun, the indwelling solar deity of which Theosophists call the Solar Logos–these devas are called solar angels, or sometimes solar devas or solar spirits. Sometimes, it is believed, they visit Earth and can be observed, like other devas, by humans whose third eyes have been activated. Theosophists believe that there are also devas living inside all the other stars besides Sol; these are called stellar angels.

In the Findhorn material, the term refers to archetypal spiritual intelligences behind species, in other words the group soul of a species.

Some New Age sources use the term is used as a generic term to designate any being regarded as being composed of etheric matter–elementals, nature spirits (including the various types of nature spirits such as fairies, ondines, etc.).

I used to have this really cool little OLD Theosophy book that a numnuts friend of mine lost.

Argh still not over that. It had all the information on elementals of nature, devas, fairies……

So I was looking at all my actual books and couldn’t find the information. Whoever writes at cyrstalinks does a good job.

I have always liked that website.
