Chapter 11: Development of the Higher Mind

Without a clear understanding of the relationship between the personality and the Higher Self, confusion will constantly arise in the mind clouding the intelligence and throwing a dark shadow on the path one is treading. By training the personality to align it with the Higher Ego, the personality can be used for more spiritual and far-seeing purposes, thus yielding a rich harvest to use for the development of the Higher Mind.

Chapter Seven: Sins and Virtues

Every virtue is indissolubly connected with others, so that to achieve one is at the same time to acquire others. HP Blavatsky tells us that all virtues are founded on the recognition of the One Life. Conversely, the root of all “sin” is selfishness, calculating only what one is getting out of things, without consideration of the welfare of others.

Chapter 10: Functions of the Causal Body

The higher mental body, which is called the Causal body in theosophical literature, forms the lowest vehicle of the immortal Ego, which endures from life to life and goes through the evolutionary processes in aeons of time. It will thus be seen that the line of demarcation between the lower and the higher mind not only separates these two mental principles but also the lower and the higher Self in us.

In Western psychology the word “mind” stands for a very vaguely defined and complex group of phenomena connected with the functioning of consciousness. It includes in its lower end feelings and emotions. The general discipline of the mind, which will be discussed; if adopted in right earnest, can be found to be helpful by anyone who is living even the ordinary worldly life without having any aspiration for the higher life of spiritual unfoldment.

Chapter Six: The Mind

Perhaps the greatest need of our time is for peace of mind, a calmness that allows clear seeing. The mind is seldom still but surges with an inherent vitality in times of pain and happiness alike. Most of these are self-centered images which generate individual and worldwide conflict. Until such internal warfare ceases, there can be no peace among us.
