BUDDHA said: All that we are is the result of what we have thought: all that we are is founded on our thoughts and formed of our thoughts.
“If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain pursues him, as the wheel of the wagon follows the hoof of the ox that draws it.
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: all that we are is founded on our thoughts and formed of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought happiness pursue him like his own shadow that never leaves him.
“He reviled me, he beat me and conquered and then plundered me,” who express such thoughts tie their mind with the intention of retaliation. In them hatred will not cease.
“He reviled me, he beat me and conquered and then plundered me,” who do not express such thoughts, in them hatred will cease.
“In this world never is enmity appeased by hatred; enmity is ever appeased by Love. This is the Law Eternal.”
[The Dhammapada, Ch. 1 The Twin Verses]
“Forgiveness is the mental, emotional and/or spiritual process of ceasing to feel resentment, indignation or anger against another person for a perceived offense, difference or mistake, or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution.”
BECAUSE all organisms are related through similarities in DNA sequences, the whole of nature could be really one family.
New insights of epigenetics have lead to a revolutionary view of human biology. Theosophy concurs with many of these new findings.
“The failures of science and its arbitrary assumptions,” Blavatsky says in The Secret Doctrine (2:670), “are far greater on the whole than any ‘extravagant’ esoteric doctrine.”
The traditional geneticist’s view of evolution “is from the animal,” she reminds us, and “mind in its various phases” is viewed, erroneously, as completely separate from matter.
It follows, then, that the identical genes that were in our ancestor’s bodies, that Blavatsky called “The Life Atoms” —”are transmitted through their descendants for generation after generation…
“…so that we are literally ‘flesh of the flesh’ of the primeval creature who has developed into man in the later period.”
