Theosophy and the Society in the Public Eye

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.

[Editor’s note: Richard, currently living in  Germany and who is a member of the TS-Adyar there, is a wel-known figure in Adyar circles. On many an occasion, especially during recent International Conventions in India, as well as the the last held World Congress in Singapore he took the “official” photos. The collection of imasges he makes available for the series on Theosophy Forwardare beautiful, intriguing, and dazzling at the same time. Richard, through the lens of his camera sees things of which we might at first not be aware, and he kindly shares his findings with us.]

Richard says: 

In 2018 I was invited by Italian artist Aischa Muller to join in an exploration of Etruscan Necropolis belonging to a settlement called Poggio Buco near Pitiglianoin the Maremma, Tuscany. She is researching matriarchal - egalitarian prehistoric societies.

Beautiful Pitigliano inTuscany

The bell-shaped tombs with burial beds, vestibules and hallways were carved deep into tufa rock in the 7th century B.C. It is supposed that Poggio Buco’s area was the site of the rich Etruscan town of Statonia.
Unfortunately, due to general neglect of this site, most of the graves are flooded and can no longer be visited, except for the Tomb of the Queen.

A note from Joma Sipe in Portugal

Public Eye JS 1 b

I am more than happy to inform readers of Theosophy Forward about what I have been doing recently. Finished the Sri Yantra Series for the project started in November 2018, having made 43 small original Sri Yantras Mandalas, each with an individual design around the main symbol.

I began to read the Helena Roerich’s Leaves from Morya´s Garden and I am enjoying the connection with the poetry of the text, of which I was not aware, and I am finding out more about the Agni Yoga Organization.

 Public Eye JH 2 About my Music

The author

Musical expression, for me so far, has been primarily instrumental although there are a few compositions containing vocals. Also, often there is a visual image associated with a composition which I try and render to some degree and include in my website. When asked what kind of music I write, I am sometimes at a loss as to what to say, other than “it is hard to describe,” or that the music is “instrumental,” neither of which does much to convey a clear idea, so I will make a more concerted effort here.

Richard says:

I took the photos during the last night of a two week stay in the Orocopia Mountains in southern California, United States, east of the Coachella Valley. It is a sacred place in the outskirts of the Sonoran Desert, 5 miles on a dirt road west of the Highway I10, across from the Joshua Tree National park.

Faces of Light

David Grossman – USA 

“Every picture tells a story.” It is often said, and when it concerns David’s photos, it is certainly true. 

He writes: 

“As the flame from one candle ignites the flame of numerous other candles and isn’t diminished, and just as plants turn toward the sunlight for sustenance and life, so we as self-conscious beings, each in our own way, reach toward Wisdom, the Highest, what we often call God, Essence, Truth, Source, Allah, Elohim, Brahman, etc. We too are Children of Light.”
