Dear Reader,

The opening thought of the month says:

On page 4 one finds “Good Will and Cooperation” and “The Seedling of the Future”.  On page 5, “The Sunny Science of the Heart” discusses the fact that timing is essential to life and karma.

Preparing the Omega Point” is on pages six and seven. After that we have the article “Ideas, Fancies and Insights”.

These are other topics in the November 2016 edition of the “Aquarian”: 

* Unmasking Organized Ignorance;

* Thoughts Along the Road; 

* The Birth of the Future;

* A Sacred Teacher Clarifies: Theosophists Must Be Independent;

* The Pilgrim and the Tide; and

The Aquarian Theosophist, October 2016

 


Dear Reader,

The opening thought of the October edition says:      

There is no joy like the joy of having fulfilled one’s duty.

On page one, the note “A Clean Life, a Pure Heart” discusses a kind of cleanliness that is not physical.

Page two presents “The Wisdom of a Turtle”, on the importance of being “slow” in our age of anxiety; and the note “A Nameless, Timeless Soul”, on the alternation of quietness and struggle.

The Source of Serendipity” is on page three. On pages four and five, “Abandoning Voluntary Blindness: The Philosophical Value of Democracy”. 

An essential topic concerning the future of mankind - how to build a theosophical lodge - is examined in a letter written by an Eastern immortal sage whose normal consciousness is beyond the karma of our mankind. Most of the letter is published on pages six and seven.

On page eight, we have a note by Indian author N. C. Ramanujachary entitled “Serious or Curious?”.

These are other topics in the October 2016 edition of the “Aquarian”: 

* Judah Abravanel, Fragments From Neoplatonic Judaism;

* The Chain of Action and Reaction; 

* A Few Socratic Questions;

* The Ecology of the Soul, or the Birth of Devotion;

* The Occult Life of Sentences;

* Thoughts Along the Road; 

* Helena Blavatsky, on the Eiffel Tower; and

* Preventing the Insanity of Atomic War.

The 17 pp. edition includes the List of New Texts in our associated websites.

Namaste,

The Editors

The Story of ‘The Aquarian’

Monthly Journal Started to
Circulate in November 2000

Carlos Cardoso Aveline




The Aquarian Theosophist” was founded by Jerome Wheeler. The first edition circulated from Los Angeles in November 2000.  Its opening paragraph stated a purpose of enduring validity:

“Since the present is shorn of its causal basis when dissociated from the past, just as the future is an unknown quantity when dissociated from the present, we must view The Theosophical Movement through its many theosophical and occult societies, their publications and tendencies. And, since mere facts have but a commodity value at best, our study will treat of their significance and bearing in the light of Theosophical history and philosophy.”

In 2000, the founding-editor of “The Aquarian” was already an experienced student of H.P. Blavatsky.

Born in Texas City on August 8th, 1934, Jerome Wheeler had been deeply inspired in his studies by the writings and the life-example of John Garrigues - who in 1909 was one of the founders of the United Lodge of Theosophists.     

Jerome edited “The Aquarian” for more than five years. Will Windham - a theosophist living in London, UK - took over as its editor in July 2006 and published the magazine for a similar period of time. In February 2012, the Aquarian announced it would start being published by the editors of www.TheosophyOnline.com and its associated websites. 

“The Aquarian” is committed to the original teachings of modern theosophy. Its goals include making an examination of the struggle between truth and falsehood in the soul of the esoteric movement. The journal also accompanies key world events through its page on Facebook.  

In October 2013 the “Aquarian” published the book “The Fire and Light of Theosophical Literature”.[1]  A second book appeared in Portuguese language. It is a translation of “Light on the Path” (“Luz no Caminho”), by M.C., with a 2014 prologue and explanatory footnotes. This critical edition shows the mistakes of M.C. according to the viewpoint stated in writing by Helena Blavatsky.  

In September 2016, the editors of “The Aquarian” participated in the founding of the Independent Lodge of Theosophists, which has much in common with the ULT.

The Independent Lodge aims at helping the long-term effort for the future of mankind. Ethics is a top priority for the ILT, which adopts as its main references the Letters from the Mahatmas and the writings of H. P. Blavatsky.
