Theosophy and the Society in the Public Eye

Photos by Richard Dvořák – MOON SHOTS

Richard, currently living in Germany and who is a member of the TS-Adyar there, is a well-known figure in Adyar circles, he says:

“I love taking photos of the moon and the sun. This series will be about the moon, the next series, later this year, will about the sun.”

This was taken on the roof of Leadbeater Chambers in Adyar, mid-January 2016. It is a long exposure (30 seconds), the multiple exposure effect stems from shortening the focal length of the telephoto lens (from 640 down to about 200mm). The feeling evoked is somewhat from an oriental fairy tale - like The Thousand and One Nights or Layla and Majnun

Joma Sipe, a fine artist

Like always I am more than happy to inform readers of Theosophy Forward about what I have been doing recently.

Mentioned in my previous contribution to Theosophy Forward that I was working on a new mandala series, following the Sri Yantra Series with a symbol representing a Merkaba. This time I am using silver based ink pens and white crystals, each with a different and special design around the main symbol.

Theosophy is that ocean of knowledge which spreads from shore to shore of the evolution of sentient beings; unfathomable in its deepest parts, it gives the greatest minds their fullest scope, yet, shallow enough at its shores, it will not overwhelm the understanding of a child.

New York’s concrete jungle

I am one of 4.25 billion people who lives in an urban environment. We make up 55% of the world’s population. Large cities have creative energies, diverse possibilities for work, cultural and educational institutions along with many other amenities, They incorporate new technologies that were called science fiction just a few decades ago. Yet their artificiality has cut us off from the natural world, literally affecting our biorhythms, and causing psychological abnormalities in our lives, blocking our sense of connection and responsibility towards each other & the earth itself. We seem to have lost touch with both the spiritual and physical rhythms of life.

We were on the way home to my friend’s ranch in Polveraia, Tuscany, Italy, after spending the day hiking in the areas around Stribugliano and Roccalbegna. We’d just visited a horse ranch (Collins e Sentieri), when all things around turned golden…

Speaking Out

David Grossman – USA 

[Editor’s note: David lives in New York and is a lifelong student of Theosophy. He is currently the treasurer of International Theosophy Conferences, lectures regularly and is a photographer by profession.] 

It is easy to feel insignificant and ineffectual in the face of the impersonal forces of the large man-made power structures of civilization which have such a sizable impact on the life of an individual. Whether these powers be governmental, economic, or religious and/or academic belief systems, it is not easy to question or challenge them even though they have a real impact on everyday life and on planet earth our home. These systems then take on a life of their own, becoming a kind of elemental force, with no accountability.
