Abstract:

The spiritually penetrating essays in this volume were written for the expressed purpose of shedding the pristine light of universal Theosophy on the path of spiritual self-regeneration in the service of humanity. The Theosophical philosophy is predicated on the ageless truth that divine wisdom exists, and that wise beings exist who dynamically embody it in world history; that sages and seers still grace the globe and continually oversee the spiritual, mental and physical evolution of man and nature. The secret Society of Sages that guides human progress periodically sends forth one of their own to sound afresh the Divine Philosophy and exemplify the spiritual life in all its richness and mystery. Such an enlightened spiritual teacher articulates eternal but forgotten truths in ingenious ways, adopting modes that inspire the mind, release soul perception, and cut through the miasma of an age. The wide-ranging articles in this volume span the spectrum of human thought from the metaphysical to the mystical, the ethical to the psychological, the spiritual to the material. They reveal the fundamental basis of religion, philosophy and science. The assimilation of these essays turns us back upon ourselves and releases that laser-like insight that allows us to increasingly discern the true, the good, and the beautiful in all religious teachings, philosophical musings, and scientific discoveries. When carefully meditated upon and skillfully applied to the realm of self-chosen duties, they purify the mind, cleanse the heart, and uplift the human condition. - Back cover.

Lovers of Wisdom 2e, 0534541461, Daniel Kolak

Lovers of Wisdom 2e

This is the most exciting and comprehensive text with integrated readings for introducing students to philosophy. It presents the big picture with all the right details. The central idea is to embed the best excerpts from the most important writings of the most important philosophers into one seamless, coherent adventure story in such a way that the reader takes part in the process of discovery. Instead of reading about philosophy, readers acquire philosophical insights into themselves and the world by acquiring a knowledge of philosophical ideas presented in their original contexts. Organized both historically and topically, the book can be used either chronologically or by topics, and to facilitate this for instructors it contains two separate tables of contents.

The book covers all the major philosophers from the pre-Socratics to twentieth-century philosophy with a scope wide enough to embrace all schools and traditions-from the analytic and continental to non-western. This approach enables readers to understand the connection between many different ways of looking at ourselves and the world, to obtain a broad and multi-perspectival vision of all the best that philosophy has had to offer, by building philosophical bridges across national, cultural, religious, historical, and scholarly borders.

Features
  • Beautifully written, it reads like a novel or adventure story.
  • Contains the most important excerpts from the most important philosophers.
  • Includes all schools and traditions: analytic, continental, non-western.
  • Two separate tables of contents-can be used historically or topically.
  • Includes free student''s companion with sample tests along with reading and writing exercises.

Essays on Walking the Path

by Raghavan Iyer

The Avatar earned first-class honors in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University, a doctorate in Philosophy, and then was selected to be an Oxford Don in philosophy and politics. He lectured throughout Europe and also in Africa, and his extensive writings have been published by Oxford University Press and Concord Grove Press. He also lectured for many years at the United Lodge of Theosophists in Santa Barbara, where he also founded the Institute of World Culture.

The spiritually penetrating essays in this volume were written for the expressed purpose of shedding the pristine light of universal Theosophy on the path of spiritual self-regeneration in the service of humanity.

Unity in Diversity
The Way Ahead for Humanity - NEW


We need a new, hopeful vision for the future. This book presents such a vision: a future that embraces a world at peace in harmony and unity, while each individual quality and approach is welcomed and needed. It is visionary, but is expressed with a cogent and compelling logic.

Unity in Diversity: The Way Ahead for Humanity concerns the future of every man, woman and child. It is about the future of the Earth itself. Humanity, Creme says, is at a crossroads and has a major decision to make: to go onwards and create a brilliant new civilisation in which all are free and social justice reigns, or continue as we are, divided and competing, and see the end of life on planet Earth.

Creme writes for the Spiritual Hierarchy on Earth, whose Plan for the betterment of all humanity he presents. He shows that the path forward for us all is the realisation of our essential unity without the sacrifice of our equally essential diversity.

The Gathering of the Forces of Light
UFOs and their Spiritual Mission


The Gathering of the Forces of Light is a book about UFOs, but with a difference. It is written by someone who has worked with them and knows about them from the inside. Benjamin Creme sees the presence of UFOs as planned and of immense value for the people of Earth.

According to Benjamin Creme, the UFOs and the people in them are engaged on a spiritual mission to ease humanity’s lot and to save this planet from further and faster destruction. Our own planetary Hierarchy, led by Maitreya, the World Teacher, now living among us, works tirelessly with their Space Brothers in a fraternal enterprise to restore sanity to this Earth.

Creme shows how all the planets of our solar system are inhabited, but on physical levels beyond present human sight, the so-called etheric planes. The spacecraft are constructed on the same principle; they too are in etheric matter and have complete control of energies in space. Our Space Brothers are responsible not only for crop circles but also for preparing the way on Earth for a new technology of light which will give us unlimited power from the sun. When we banish war forever and are endeavouring to live in right relationship, that technology will be ours. For the Spiritual Hierarchy of both our own and the sister planets of our system, right human relationship involves the end of competition and the beginning of an era of co-operation with sharing, justice and freedom as its hallmarks.

The book also addresses the emergence of new and more inclusive forms of education, which will be needed as we experience a huge shift in consciousness and a growing awareness of the richness of life ahead, unfettered by the stranglehold of commercialism and the dominance of market forces.

Fantasy? Benjamin Creme writes with such cogency and authority that it is difficult to gainsay his message. We leave it to the readers to come to their own conclusion; in any case, according to the author, the truth will soon be apparent for all to see, awakening humanity to their own divinity and the establishment of the rule of spiritual law on Earth.

The book contains talks by Benjamin Creme, articles by Benjamin Creme’s Master and Questions and Answers, and is in two parts: the first, ‘UFOs and their Spiritual Mission’, deals with the work of our Space Brothers on behalf of humanity; the second, ‘Education in the New Age’, looks at the changes in education that will be necessary in the coming time, as we adopt new technologies introduced by the Space Brothers and become increasingly aware of the hitherto hidden forces that underlie our lives.

In Part One, ‘UFOs and Their Spiritual Mission’, topics include: The Space Brothers’ Work on Earth, Contacting the Space Brothers, George Adamski and other Contactees, Encounters with Spaceships, Benjamin Creme’s Work with the Space Brothers. Topics under ‘The Invisible Peril’ cover Etheric Matter and Current Science, Pollution and Nuclear Radiation, Saving the Planet. Also included: The ‘Star’ heralding Maitreya’s Emergence, Maitreya’s First Interview and Maitreya’s Light-ship. Includes colour photographs.

In Part Two, ‘Education in the New Age’, topics include: We do not know who we are, Intuition and Creativity, Educating Young Children, Educational Role of the Groups, Family and Karma, the Technology of Light.

Ocean Wisdom – Walkin Lyrics

Walkin'

These are the lyrics from Masta Wizzy himself. So they are right this time read more »

Walkin' Lyrics

[Verse 1: Ocean Wisdom]
See me I'm walking, why cause i don't run fam
Make a film about me find a proper fucking stuntman
I'm captain wiz and I'm actually shoving dirt in a dustpan
And blowing it back in faces of wastemen who try and brush man
I get a wheel in the club on the microphone
They didn't know I handle bars, it's a minor though
They offered me some gear but I'm over tired
All this talkin make a bredda wanna cycle home, yo
I flabbergast that bredda my stamina can be coming in handy
Flipping the script, I'm doing a what? I'm telling a story, doing a plan B
How the fuck on earth did we become so angry?
Couple years ago, man was just reading the dandy
So how'd I go from reading the beano to beating up emos
Swimming in speedos to swinging in chinos
Mimicking heroes to zeros
From Zoro to Tarantinos, we're living like wierdos
I guess the level of violence increases as the fear grows, but
Just can't spit on beats, I'mma spit acapella
Don't think I won't rap a fella
Smack that nigga make an aki swell up, leave him black and yellow
I ain't talking Wiz Khalifa, this wiz kidda the beater, you a rancid dweller
Got the dank piff in my cellar, I'm the dank piff seller
Thing is smelling way too much so wrap that in some cella
Celebrate ca man wan tell a mate about this massive fella
On the beat, and on the tune there ain't no aki better fassies fed up
Yo, in my raps, there's unlimited lyrics and syllables
Hitting my pinnacle isn't a miracle it's kinda literal
Feeling a feeling that's minimal
Physical feeling it's more of a spiritual
Healing a visual audible justification of lyrically winning
That's why I be spitting again, and again and again
Gripping the tip of the pen, hitting a spliff of the lem
They lyrically stepping to me and I be lyrically stepping to them Yeah they levelling up but I'm levelling better than them
Tell it to lesser men wizzy be stressing 'em
Never addressing 'em, never ever again, never ever again

[Verse 2: Ocean Wisdom]
Watch me, clock me, knock me but don't stop me
I got flocks that watched and got knocked knee properly
I got props from lots of chops it's often got me
Gassed as a motherfucker lost and cocky, what G?
You can't tell me that i don't win
Ca on the beat I'm like a granddad I go in
Unique bredda yeah I got my own thing
You neek, you're not unique with gold rings
I'm a young brother with a lot of heart
Been at it from the start, I can tell you're gonna chart
But how you gonna hold a man when older man ain't half as smart Trying to control a man like Zola can in Upton Park
I'm holding more knowledge than a folder can
I'm focused and you know I love my art
Ain't no more holding grams For Ocean man
Notice that I know my plan
Teedot told me Ropa Dope's a joke you need to go for man
So Ocean goes for man, I owe you fam
Owe you dat, came in the game with a whole new act
Invading the brain with a whole new rap
Blatantly stating that your whole crew's wack
I had to do that, had to man up
If you ain't got the balls to copy then bad luck
You ain't got the balls to copy you fat fuck
You ain't got the balls to copy I'm that much, I got
Exquisite ability mimicking vividest imagery lyrically stinging a killer bee
Killing the similes willyly nillily, wanna be chillin with Fiddy and Diddy
And Cudi the Kidy listening to Biggie
Buming a ciggy with Dizzy and Weezy
Sucking a titty like giggiddy giggiddy. my ability can't mimic me
Flow, buggsy, bigadibobadi
Gota be properly on it to stop a G
Copping the hottest of property, not a monopoly
Actual life, ain't no topping me, stopping and floppin is comedy
Honestly quality optical oddities, not in an oddessy
Tell a man straight you've been warned, no wallaby
Ca man ain't feelin the court, don’t follow G's
People we need to abort this policy horriblly
Course discographies making me feel like I'mm waring constantly
Applaud and follow me

[Verse 3: Ocean Wisdom]
But I ain't even trying to be that type of guy
Ain't trying to be that type of breh
Ain't tryng toa lead that type of life you know
I ain't even trying to meet myself a wife
Ain't trying to meet myself a dame
I'm trying to keep myself alright, you know
I feel the sudden rush of heat when I'm on stage
I don't compete with none you pagans
Cause it's peak to fuck with wastemen
My flow is sweet I know the streets they love to taste it
But im feelin undertakerish, putting niggas in graves and shit
Ask True Fizz, us man are runnin shit
But the truth is, these man are runnin quick
But if the shoe fits, wear it, and it fits me
I'm runnin oh so quickly. so stick me
On the top of the roster where Big be
Big beats got me feeling like twigs in a sandwich I stick to the wrap
No giving it back
I'm flipping a packet of cigs, ripping the cig down the mids
Sprinkling cig on my riz, sprinkling piff on the cig on the riz
Sprinkling cig on the piff on the cig on the riz
Twist it an get it lit, nigga what

Ask us a question about this song

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

by John Michael Greer


Acclaimed as an instant classic on its original publications and eagerly sought by students of magic ever since, Paths of Wisdom is a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of the magical Cabala, as practiced in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and most other contemporary Western occult traditions. Engaging and accessible, yet packed with material found in few other books, it illumines the Cabalist underpinnings of today’s Hermetic magic as never before.

From the fundamentals of Cabalistic philosophy, through a detailed examination of the Spheres and Paths of the Tree of Life, to the magical disciplines that bring the symbolism to life as a potent toolkit for self-knowledge and esoteric attainment, Paths of Wisdom is your guide to the principles and practices of the magical Cabala.

Unlock the hidden potentials of the universe and yourself through the magical Cabala. Explore the essential theory and practice of Cabalistic magic from a modern perspective. Paths of Wisdom goes beyond fragments of symbolism and correspondences to reveal the actual practices at the very heart of the teachings of the Golden Dawn.

"An excellent book which thoroughly explains the Qabalah from a Golden Dawn perspective and offers complete instruction in Qabalistic magic, mediation, pathworking, ritual, and prayer. This book is reader-friendly and provides easy-to-understand material for the beginner as well as practical material on the advanced levels of Golden Dawn Qabalistic magic. A valuable, insightful, and comprehensive overview of a sometimes difficult subject. Highly recommended."
Chic & Tabatha Cicero, authors of Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition


"One of the best introductions to the magical Cabala available."
David Godwin, author of Godwin's Cabalistic Encyclopedia

If you have gotten the flight path from Kitemaster Ut-Nam you will not be offered this quest. It falls in the breadcrumb category.

Comment by Ikshuki1 In Search of Wisdom Description

Lorewalker Cho came by and asked for you while you were gone.

He needs your assistance urgently in the town of Dawn's Blossom to the north. For what reason, he did not say.

Speak to Kitemaster Ut-Nam. He would be happy to send you there.

Your deeds have sparked a long forgotten memory I have of an ancient prophecy. This deserves investigation.

In order to investigate, I need jade though. I have instructed Toya to gather as much as he can find and give it to you when he is done. Bring it to me and we will see about deciphering the ancient "Emperor's Omen."

While he gathers the jade, feel free to explore. You may find the people of this town are in need of a person of your caliber.
