Our Unity - Universal Unity

Theosophy Our Unity 2

In The Key to Theosophy, H.P Blavatsky says, “All men are spiritually and physically of the same origin.”i Each of us has within “The ONE LIFE, invisible, yet Omnipresent.”iiThis Eternal Principle is immutable, but is a necessity, since nothing comes from nothing. It is the Uncreated, yet the basis of all manifestation. Our Souls are microcosmic copies of this Divine Kosmos. Physically, we are made from the stuff most prevalent in the earth and universe: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. We all share immense cycles of evolution spiritually and physically, from the Solar and Lunar Pitris respectively. Every atom of our being can be traced to the ONE LIFE. The Secret Doctrine affirms, “THE ROOT OF LIFE WAS IN EVERY DROP OF THE OCEAN OF IMMORTALITY, AND THE OCEAN WAS RADIANT LIGHT, WHICH IS FIRE AND HEAT AND MOTION.”iii Life is not an accident, an after-thought, or a creation of a personal God, but always has been and will be. However, life on this plane of existence is ever changing, because nothing is inorganic, as Hindu philosophy and the German philosopher Schelling affirm.

Theosophy Our Unity 4 bridge

Being a younger student of Theosophy, my first International Theosophical Conference was only a few years ago. I remember quite well a particular conversation that I had over breakfast one morning, with another young student. He was a student of Point Loma – The Hague and I, being from Wheaton, was primarily exposed to the Adyar tradition. We enjoyed comparing notes, so to speak, talking on the differences between the traditions.

There was one common experience to which we could both attest, however, especially surrounded by many Theosophists from different traditions. We both remembered our shock the first time we found out that there were other traditions at all! Imagine learning of an organization with such a heavy emphasis on Universal Brotherhood and Truth and Unity. And then relatively shortly after, one discovers that at some point in history it split up, in multiple ways! Even we, with the noblest of intentions, are not immune to such divisive events.

Our Unity – Series: UNITY and DIVERSITY, Brotherhood and Freedom of Thought and Spiritual Evolution

Roger Price – Belgium

Theosophy Our Unity 6 Roger

Although all of life is always a Unity it is through manifestation and the experience of individuality including its apparent separateness (at least through some phases of the Monads evolution) that the full spectrum of necessary evolutionary experience is gathered by every Monad for the ALL. Hence the necessity of diversity within Unity for Humanity.

Our Unity - Domen Kočevar

Domen Kočevar – Slovenia

Lift thy head, oh Lanoo; dost thou see one, or countless lights above thee, burning in the dark midnight sky?”

I sense one Flame, oh Gurudeva, I see countless undetached sparks shining in it.”

Thou sayest well. And now look around and into thyself. That light which burns inside thee, dost thou feel it different in anywise from the light that shines in thy Brother-men?”

It is in no way different, though the prisoner is held in bondage by Karma, and though its outer garments delude the ignorant into saying, ‘Thy Soul and My Soul.’ ” H.P.B., The Secret Doctrine, Vol. I, p. 120

Our Unity - Our Unity Lies in Our Quest for Truth

Theosophy Our Unity 8

Truth is the quest of every Theosophist, says H. P. Blavatsky. It is this quest for Truth that all students of Theosophy (should) have in common and it is in this quest that lies our Unity.
