Basic Theosophy
Geoffrey Hodson

1 "In the age and evolutionary phase of wisdom which is now dawning, man will realise the fact of unity and learn consciously to draw upon and wield the power from the One Source."

2 "The purpose and goal of human life is the evolution of the human Soul to the stature of the Perfect Man – a state of complete fulfilment and highest development."

3 "A profound, fundamental truth concerning man is that, in his spiritual, intellectual, psychical and physical nature he is a miniature replica or epitome of the whole order of created beings and things."

4 "Unfoldment from less to more and reharmonization operate irresistibly upon man, as upon all else that exists. Man can delay or hasten, but he cannot ultimately frustrate these two functions of the Cosmic Will."

5 "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."

6 "When we examine the sacred books of various religions and the original sayings of the world's greatest teachers, we are able to perceive a singular uniformity."

7 "God and man are one and indivisible throughout all eternity. This is the one supreme truth taught in all Mystery Schools and in all religions."

8 "There is nowhere in which to be lost. God is omnipresent."

9 "Always be kinder than the situation demands. Earth's greatest Teachers and Sages have taught this."

10 "Universal love is the password to the realms of light."

11 "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."

12 "A gardener or farmer plants his seeds underground and, in due course, the new plants appear and complete their cycle of growth, which is generally consummated in the production of more seeds. The One Life, the One Law and the One Energy, to which the name 'God' has been given, would seem similarly to provide for the innermost selves of humanity the conditions necessary for the germination and development of their limitless, but at first seed-like deific powers. These conditions have some analogy with those provided for the seed of a plant when it is planted in the soil."

13 "Actions motived by love, service and unselfishness produce a growing freedom of self-expression."

14 "Humaneness, which is obedience to the law of love in thought, feeling, word and deed, is the only way to lasting world peace."

15 "There is in existence in the whole Universe only one Spiritual Essence, one Spiritual Being, one Divine Flame – and the Spiritual Self of man is forever at one with that all-inclusive One Alone. This is the one great truth."

16 "Just as the acorn under proper conditions will produce out of itself a complete reproduction of its parent tree, which in its turn can produce hundreds of thousands of further acorns each similarly endowed, so the spiritual soul of man contains within itself in a latent or seed-like state the full potentiality of its divine source."

17 "Regard your neighbor's gain as your own gain: and regard your neighbor's loss as your own loss." T'ai Shang Kan Ying P'ien (Taoist)

18 "All these parts of the Cosmos…are in correspondence or harmonious interaction or mutual resonance with each other."

19 "Oneness is the supreme truth."

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

21 "It is the nature of love to change us into the likeness of that which we contemplate." A. E. (George W. Russell),

22 "All manifested divine Power, Life and Consciousness, and so all human Spirits, radiate from the One Source."

23 "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."

24 "As a captain must know both his ship and his charted course, so man must know himself and his pathway in life."

25 "The deity-to-be is already present embryonically within every human being."
