Basic Theosophy
Geoffrey Hodson

1 "The person who successfully probes his own inner nature and existence back to its Centre and Core, finds one single source of all men, all beings, all existence. Unity then emerges as the supreme verity, the everlasting truth."

2 "All is interwoven, interlocked, and this interweaving is based upon a universal system of vibrational correspondences or mutual resonances."

3 "The whole Universe with all its parts…is interlocked, interwoven, to make a single whole, one body, one organism, one life, one consciousness, cyclicly evolving under one law."

4 "Man can master circumstances and make of each experience an opportunity for a fresh beginning, however heavily the past may weigh upon him."

5 "All work is, indeed, performed as part of the One Work and on behalf of the One Worker."

6 "Ultimately, the message of the Unity of Life will be recognised as a divine instruction, as impelling summons, an irresistible command. When this time comes there will be health for mankind and peace upon Earth."

7 "Within-ness and without-ness use both infinite, but also one."

8 "Man, in very truth, was created in the image of God. Eliphas Levi said: 'The mystery of the earthly and mortal man is after the mystery of the supernal and immortal One."

9 "Self-existent, eternal, resplendent in Its own glory, is the Shining One, Whose Centre is invisible Fire, Whose rays are Light and Life, pervading the universe to its utmost limits, penetrating every form and causing it to live and to grow."

10 "Actions which help and heal others and which preserve and restore, when disturbed, the harmony of the Universe, are in accord with cosmic purpose and so produce happiness, which is moreness, fullness, and accord. One should therefore be harmonious and a harmoniser. Herein lies the individual contribution to the solution of the problem of war; for when the harmonisers become a majority peace will reign."

11 "Each individual Soul is unified with the World-Soul, the all-pervading divine consciousness."

12 "Neither individuals nor nations are paralysed by their past actions. Everything is not irretrievably fated, however good or bad the past. Man can master circumstances and make of each experience an opportunity for a fresh beginning, however heavily the past may weigh upon him."

13 "For an increasing number of people, the Inner Voice grows stronger, more insistent, calling: 'One life in all'."

14 "Man, in his essential spiritual nature, is as a seed of the Deity."

15 "Ultimate and complete success is assured by virtue of the presence of an infinite, divine power, ceaselessly at work within the Soul of every man."

16 "Perfection is the assured goal of every human being."

17 "The chaos, the wars and the threat of wars, the ruin and the disease in the world are, I suggest, the direct result of humanity's denial in motive and conduct of the truth that Life is One."

18 "Man in his spiritual nature is a divine, immortal, imperishable being."

19 "All are one. Minerals, plants, animals, men, supermen, angels, archangels, worlds, suns, stars and galaxies – all are one, inseparably united……This is the sublime truth, the Master fact – all are one."

20 "There is a quotation to the effect that 'God wills to see, and behold the eye'. Even so the innermost Self wills to express itself outwardly, to become aware, to know, to commune."

21 "Spiritually man is one with God and the goal of life in terms of consciousness is fully to know, deeply to realise, and so physically to live in recollection of this truth."

22 "That nature only is good when it shall not do unto another whatever is not good for its own self." Dadistan-i-dinik, 94:5 (Zoroastrian)

23 "There is but one Spiritual Will in the Cosmos, and the Will-Self of man is an embodiment thereof. Full recognition of this fact is the highest vision, and its ratification in action is the secret of well-being."

24 "The true citizen of the New Age will let compassion control even the details of daily life. He will shrink from harming anything that breathes because he will accept the Law of Kinship of all that lives."

25 "However terrible the sin and sorrow on earth may be, all things are somehow working together for the eventual good of all."
