Basic Theosophy
Geoffrey Hodson

5 "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."

10 "The Lord Buddha said: 'To those who revile me, I will give the protection of my most ungrudging love. And the greater their hostility, the greater shall be the measure of my love.'"

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

12 "The present dark period will pass as the human intellect increasingly transcends the prideful, acquisitive, separative attributes of the formal mind, and develops the powers of the synthesizing, prophetic, intuitive faculties of the Abstract or Higher Mind."

13 "Indeed, no one ever sincerely cries for light in vain."

14 "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."

15 "Man is indeed a mystery, since he contains germinally within himself all his Creator's manifested attributes and powers and, in addition, those which will continue to become manifest throughout unending ages."

16 "All beings are synthesized to constitute one great Intelligence."

17 "All things are located everywhere. Everything is all, and all is each thing; infinite splendour is radiated around. Everything is great, for even the small is great." Plotinus
