Hi Rob - Thanks for this. I've been eyeballing "The Secret Doctrine" book set for a while now with intent to purchase. :-) I was wondering - are there any recent books you'd recommend to your readers? Published within the past few years? I've always found book recommendations to be a bit like art - there's always this sense that all of the best work was done years ago (or hundreds of years ago) while the current crop has nothing outstanding to recommend it. What do you think? What's good now?


The information contained in your posts is nowhere near exclusive to The Secret Doctrine, have you heard of the books Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls by Dr. Thomas Newton?


Hi Ondrea - "The Secret Doctrine" IS the source material for all that we presently know of such things. ALL subsequent works are derivative, unless they are direct translations of works of antiquity, such as "The Voice of the Silence," a venerable work by the great Tibetan Sage Aryasanga written centuries ago also translated by HPB in 1890. The two works mentioned by Dr. Michael Newton are good for understanding "life between lives," but don't go into anything else mentioned in Isis Unveiled or the SD, especially not the grand scheme of planetary and solar systemic evolution, or the various rounds, chains, and globes that mark the stages of planetary evolution, or the various "root races" that show us the relationship of all the subraces on Earth to the larger life wave "pulses" of human evolution.

Unfortunately, most modern works are not a result of rigorous study of source material, but a lot of flapdoodlery draped around one or two key concepts. Many supposedly authoritative modern works are not accurate in any significant way, and are basically cotton candy for the ego mind. If you want a good intro, get "The Key to Theosophy," then get "Self Unfoldment"(1945) and "The Secret Teachings of All Ages" (1928) by Manly P. Hall, and from there I can recommend other works.

Hi Damien - While I have recommended those works for years to many people seeking to know what's on "the other side," you cannot assert those works in any way, shape, or form mirror or extend the knowledge of the Secret Doctrine, which was written over 100 years before the research of the respected Dr. Newton published in 1994. I repeat, ALL modern Western "metaphysical" works are derived, directly or indirectly, from the material in The Secret Doctrine. Though Emerson and the Transcendentalists put forth Eastern doctrines in their works earlier in the 19th century, there was no coherent body of knowledge outlining "Cosmogenesis" and "Anthropogenesis" before the SD. HPB was the first.

Thank you Robert... It feels great and very empowering to discover the root sources of collective knowledge, to be able to see where the connections are.


Hi fidant - Sure. The Secret Doctrine was read and its profound wisdom taught in a myriad of ways by such great lights as Max Heindel, Rudolph Steiner, Henry Steele Olcott, Annie Besant, C.W. Leadbeater, Alice A. Bailey, Dane Rudhyar, Marc Jones, Nicholas Roerich, Alan Leo, Manly P. Hall, Charles Carter, William Judge, Christmas Humphreys, N. Sri Ram, Jinarajadasa, Geoffrey Hodgson, Krishnamurti (and even Elvis Presley!) Thousands more all over the world have taken some part of it and created their metaphysical lives around its precepts. It takes wading through and true concentration, since HPB was a hectic writer, but all her footnoting of sources in Isis Unveiled and the Secret Doctrine that corroborated what she said is impeccable.


Also rec. and recently discovered Cyril Scott, "The Initiate". I get some awesome energy whenever I read Paul F. Case.


How can you say that when we have "Sourced" material directly from souls experiencing passage in timelessness?


Hi DDG - Yes, "the Initiate" is one of the best of all time, and PFC is absolutely essential for a sound basis of understanding that vector of wisdom. Without doubt, they are two impeccable sources.

Hi Damien - How can I say what? No one in Newton's work said anything related to the Ageless Wisdom, but rather recounted their own experience and sense of interrelatedness as THEY know it on the other side. I don't recall reading in his work anything to do with macroevolution on a human level, such as the path of Initiation and the fetters we must deal with in order to be Living Light able to put on or drop a body at will, like Sri Yukteswar or Babaji. His work does not deal with the cosmic evolution of the Earth or Solar System, or such things as the relationship of the aura to the Astral shell, the Buddhic chakra, prana and fohat. His work does not address the Dravidians of Atlantis, the various Puranas of antiquity, the importance of the Popul Vuh, or the Indo-Aryan influence on the Vedas, nor the mystery of the Pleiades, Venus' recent arrival in our Solar system, or the knowledge found in Tibetan scrolls that pre-date Jesus the Christ by thousands of years.

Newton's work, while valuable and a comfort for those who want to know what's on the other side, only deals with a fragment of the nature of living and dying and methodology, such as whether the Soul passes from the body through the feet or the fontenelle. While it describes some aspects of the "heaven world," there are things beyond what he gave us that far surpass anything in either book. Newton's work does not reveal all things there are to know. I'm sure he would agree. For example, it cannot replace the wisdom in the Tibetan Book of the Dead.

Also please remember that if you're not evolved on Earth, you won't possess evolved Spiritual Knowledge in "heaven." As Ram Dass so pithily puts it, "Just because they're dead doesn't make them wise." A being, whether in or out of the body, only knows as much as they are spiritually evolved. In other words, don't expect someone like Caligula to become a Gandhi just because he dropped the body for awhile. Newton didn't interview the Dalai Lama or the reincarnation of HPB or a manifestation of Babaji, but rather the folks he had as clients who agreed and were able to do what he wanted. That limited what he could write about. Even if he could interview a Sai Baba or Ammachi or other living avatar, it still wouldn't cover everything that was covered in the Secret Doctrine. The work is beyond description.


For a contemporary model to understand the stages and states of consciousness, I recommend Integral theory and Ken Wilber's work:

For anyone interested, this model can lift off a huge amount of confusion in this area.


Thank you for your work. :)
