Magic, the Sacred Science Inside
One of the three Objects of Theosophy is: “To investigate unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in the human being.”
Latent = dormant, inactive, unused
There is a Sacred Science or Magic within…all of us, inside of everything.
We human beings are so much more than what our 5 senses tell us that we are. When these power are recognised, there are two roads that can be taken, Light or Dark, Goodness or Greed… the suffering of humanity can be traced right back to ourselves in our selfishness, superstition, fear and ignorance.
Magic and Religion have been compared side by side forever, let’s take a look at some well known religious miracles/magic/otherworldly happenings: Resurrecting the dead, healing the sick, receiving messages from angels/spirits, manifesting objects/food and “channelling” Divinely inspired texts that became holy scriptures. The list is a long one and comes from most all of the organised religions, not just one.
HOWEVER, when we have sought this power for ourselves, even in the most simple of things like: Healing the sick with herbs and tinctures as in Midwifery. Heaven forbid there is an infection the mother or baby dies! Burn the Witch they shouted!
Or, when it was thought that the spiritual texts should be translated from Latin into a language ALL can understand to be studied outside the church, or alone or in individual groups … BURN THEM was the sacerdotal cry ! For no one can distribute this “loving” doctrine except us!
Question: So we are supposed to worship a gigantic man phantom who lives in the clouds, that we can never see nor hear, who gets violently angry, jealous and enraged if we don’t LOVE each other the way he says. AND if we violate laws that we didn’t even know existed then we are to burn alive FOREVER because he LOVES us?
Answer: Yes, that is correct. As of this moment your family is ordered to give us all of your and their worldly goods and wealth before we torture and burn you to death, because as you know, gold leafed ceilings are far more spiritually superior.
It is said that God created man in his image, but the contrary seems to be far tru. WE have created GOD in our own image at our current level of development over the millennia. That would certainly explain the behaviour of these homophobic, sexist, divisive, destructive, angry “Gods”.
Most all of the suffering on our planet, including mass murder and war is because we are “fighting” for the right to claim that WE have the most righteous and loving God.
Many organised religions are actually church cartels, not all of them, but far too many still claim sole ownership of the Source and greed is rampant. Today, the Internet has paved the road for even more countless “spiritual celebrities, I suggest Googling how many “messiahs” there are today, the result is staggering.
“This Life, therefore, manifests in our own faculties and energizes our own functions. The vision which leads to this Supreme Realization is the real Clairvoyance, which is not “the power of seeing at a distance, but rather the faculty of spiritual intuition, through which direct and certain knowledge is obtainable.”

So perhaps you have or can access these powers within yourself, you’ve discovered them on your own. What is your purpose with them? How is your personal special, magical experience going to help others? What is your motive? Is it simply out of curiosity and to peek beyond the veil to know there is more to our existence than we currently understand, is your desire selfish, for personal gain… or do you feel you wish to access these abilities to be of service to mankind. Not in a glorified, spandex, superhero way, but because of a sincere wish, to remain anonymous and humble to help to ease the suffering of all here on Earth.
Does man’s inhumanity to man shatter your heart and do you hear the call?
The Three Objects of Theosophy:
- To form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour.
- To encourage the study of Comparative religion, Philosophy and Science.
- To investigate unexplained laws of Nature and the powers latent in the human being.
THE SCIENCE OF MAGIC Proofs of its Existence — Mediums in Ancient Times, Etc.
“The exercise of magical power is the exercise of natural powers, but SUPERIOR to the ordinary functions of Nature. A miracle is not a violation of the laws of Nature, except for ignorant people. Magic is but a science, a profound knowledge of the Occult forces in Nature, and of the laws governing the visible or the invisible world.”
