Here the man needs no windows, for this is his true home and all his walls have fallen away. The Majority of men have as yet but very little consciousness at such a height as this; they rest dreamily unobservant and scarcely awake, but such vision as they have is true, however limited it may be by their lack of development. Still, every time they return, these limitations will be smaller, and they themselves will be greater; so that this truest life will be wider and fuller for them.
As this improvement continues, this causal life grows, longer and longer, assuming an ever larger proportion as compared to the existence at lower levels. And as he grows, the man become capable not only of receiving but also of giving. Then indeed is his triumph approaching, for he is learning the lesson of the Christ, learning the crowning glory of sacrifice, the supreme delight of pouring out all his life for the helping of his fellow-men, the devotion of the self to the all, of celestial strength to human service, of all those splendid heavenly forces to the aid of the struggling sons of earth.
That is part of the life that lies before us; these are some of the steps which even we who are still so near the bottom of the golden ladder may see rising above us, so that we may report them to those who have not seen as yet, in order that they too may open their eyes to the unimaginable splendour which surrounds them here and now in this dull daily life. This is part of the gospel of Theosophy- the certainty of this sublime future for all. It is certain because it is here already, because to inherit it we have only to fit ourselves for it.

We need a revolution in the aims and methods of academic inquiry. Instead of giving priority to the search for knowledge, academia needs to devote itself to seeking and promoting wisdom by rational means, wisdom being the capacity to realize what is of value in life, for oneself and others, wisdom…
Most of the posts here are about people faking mental illnesses and conditions and stuff, so they could get attention. Just because it’s not completely true, it doesn’t mean it’s completely false and attention seeking either. Hear me out;
I made a test about some mental illnesses and such, and I got really high ratings on psychopathy and narcissism and such. When I mentioned, everybody went, “Oh, you are seeking for attention, you don’t have anything.”
I know, those things can truly be researched only by doctors and such. But you know, not everyone is always lying.
- They may be concerned about having something
- They can be like me, got a result in an unofficial test
It’s not that I’d like to go around town “Yay, I could be a psychopath”, but if I can’t even mention the results to a few friends (like, I don’t have to be serious with it), then ok, this… accusing with attention seeking has gone too far.
