Reading Theosophy Of Robert Crosbie

Big thanks to Lorriane, a member of VIP Effortless English Club who has added a very useful link on her comment to my writing regarding a violence which happened in Indonesia on Sunday. I'm also delighted as well as big thanks to all positive comments given by VIP members Effortless English Club: these positive comments make me believe there still many good and normal people can live peacefully within diversity.

The given link is about theosophy by Robert Crosbie. Despite I have studied some of  ancient philosophers such as Herodotus, Plato, and Aristotle. But I find Robert Crosbie has quite more interesting thinking towards anthropic than another previous ancient philosophers ¬¬ particularly his thought of theosophy pertinent recent phenomena in Indoensia.

With no intention discussing religion, by no means, but I might involuntary talk about it as it's related to God issue. We, most human beings, know what God is about, or do we? But like Crosbie's stumper asked on his letter of Our God, Other Gods: Does anyone ever really know what the term of God?

This question allude to my knowledge about religion, especially a religion that I profess since I was born (I guess). Certainly I know what its question about. But unfortunately I can't answer it. 

Perhaps, if it's asked by long time ago when I was a kid I would describe the term of God is: "God is the creature of all beings, including me  -- there where I came from". Or maybe I can answer it straight away like this (to prevent me from argument): "God is a such as spiritual thing that cannot be detected by any technology and scientific demands". Both answers might satisfy the believers, but would it satisfy the unbelievers? What about the unbelievers? Why they don't believe at all in the existence of God?

Many of us would accept both answers; you know what? What Crosbie said might be right that  "The world is full of false ideas, false religions, false philosophies which must be thrown away". How can we throw away the doctrines that have been taught and adhered in every inch of our  brain and soul?

Everytime my little boy's friends didn't see him doing worship they'd questioned him like this: "Bintang, are you christian now?" --- which according to him it's a very annoying question. I try my best to teach him how to think and act with different society and religion: so he sometimes give no response to his friends question or reply it in which I must proud of him  as he has great thoughts and manners in this matter (religion or diversity), therefore, he can answer smartly his friends' question like this: "I'm not. But I don't like you question it. Sounds you've been racist with other religions".

However, no matter fully assists given in his life, I'm afraid (typical mother's fears), such as his surroundings, colleagues, and other taughts have more power in influecing his  behaviours and attitudes than my (great) taughts.

Back again to Crosbie. Of his many very wise thoughts, his thought of  The Kingly Mystery  is also very fascinating. I assume its his consideration of "God" existence. His thinking of The Kingly Mytery leads us to a deep query about "being", to go back again to history where first life began. He also asserts on his wise point of view about who The Kingly Mytery really is; without alluding whether its being exist (his note: The kingly mystery of Life can not mean physical existence, which is merely one aspect of the Great Life). 

In this section of his letter he briefly described about the spirit of beings. He impute  this thought of the spirit of beings with the Kingly Mystery  --- how the Kingly Mystery can be found in our own natures? He asserts it because our life is surrounded by overwhelming falsity that make we unable to find its purity of being's souls. 

Hmm, a very impressive thought.
