EMBARRASSMENT is hard to hide and is even more embarrassing if it is noticed by others around you.
The effect is impossible to ignore, yet the biological impact that thoughts and feelings have on us are a mystery to modern science.
A hint of shame or a critical stare, for example, may causes our skin to redden but how can the effect be explained?
How can the invisible, subjective and intangible energy of a thought or feeling noticeably affect the visible physical system of the human body? Science can describe the effect, but it does not know the mechanism which causes it.
A similar enigma for science is the work of biochemist Rupert Sheldrake who is famous for his experiment with blindfolded subjects who guessed whether persons were staring at them, or not. He reported that, in tens of thousands of trials the scores were consistently above chance (60%) when the subject was being stared at.
Traditional Science has no explanation for these things. “Sow a thought, reap an act” is a familiar occult mantra, but again: what is the mysterious mechanism that transforms a thought into an act? And cause biological changes?
Similarly inexplicable it was reported in ScienceDaily® that an 8-week mindfulness meditation program “appears to make measurable changes in the brain.” A team “led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers report the results of their study, the first to document meditation-produced changes over time in the brain’s grey matter.”
“…words [or images] cause us to deliberately go out of balance,” says Chopra, “and there’s no physical mechanism to explain it.”
“It’s well known that the human body depends upon homeostasis,” writes Deepak Chopra, and asks where memories and emotions originate, “in the Mind or the Brain?” There is a ” huge mystery, known as the mind-body problem,” he says, and “as long as we ignore the mind, we may be making profound mistakes about the brain.”

BACK in the day, faraway and long, long ago, when occult science was the mainstream science, the scientific method ruled. It meant checking, testing and verifying every new finding.
But modern science today looks more like a dogmatic religion than honest science, a science which should go wherever the evidence leads, no matter what. Concerned about tenure, she usually doesn’t.
And comparing the two sciences, the occult and modern materialistic, we also must acknowledge that the instruments used in their research are very different.
The teachings of The Secret Doctrine H. P. Blavatsky calls “the accumulated Wisdom of the Ages.” Such teachings are sui generis, yet they were gathered in keeping with strict scientific methodology.
Illustrating this, she notes in SD Volume 1:272, that accumulating such data “occupied countless generations of initiated seers and prophets to marshal, to set down and explain.” Adding: “The flashing gaze of those seers penetrated into the very kernel of matter, and recorded the soul of things there.”
Beyond the Mundane
But, “modern science believes not in the soul of things,” Blavatsky wrote, thus modern researchers will not add the subject of the soul to their research because they do not even accept the possibility there is one.
Ancient occult scientists on the other hand, determined to know. And their elaborate system is “no fancy of one or several isolated individuals,” says Blavatsky: “It is the uninterrupted record covering thousands of generations of Seers whose respective experiences were made to test and to verify the teachings of higher and exalted beings, who watched over the childhood of Humanity.”
