The Theosophical Society, Edinburgh

"The word Theosophy has been used for many centuries, it is of Greek origin meaning Wisdom of the Gods (theo - of Gods, sophia – wisdom). Wisdom cannot be enclosed within words, it is a Truth which must be discovered and experienced by each one for themselves. Theosophy, sometimes known as the Ageless Wisdom, is the Light which shines through the many coloured lamps of religion. It is the thread of truth in scriptures, creeds, symbols, myths and rituals. Divine Wisdom is One, the paths towards it are many."

"The Theosophical Society in Scotland is a part of the world-wide theosophical movement with its centre in Adyar, India. The Society is dedicated to the comparative study of religion, science and philosophy and the practice of the Art of Self-Realisation. The Society is composed of members of different religious backgrounds who are united in a belief that mankind is a spiritual family and that humanity can have a glorious future through a compassionate and intelligent way of living."

At the moment, Edinburgh’s theosophical society’s library hasn’t been opened yet. But I've been going to the Thursday meetings where many different topics are covered each week, by way of lecture/presentation with an opening for debate afterwards, before heading to The Bonham for some refreshments afterwards. I must say, I absolutely love the meetings and the people are wonderful.

It’s so important to expand our minds, feed our perspectives and knowledge, and for me, this meeting of minds over specific topic’s is the best way for me. It really helps me absorb the information into my wider systems of thinking.

I’ve got to know a good few of the regulars, and some of them have given me some of their own books on THE SOUL to help with my research while waiting for the library to reopen.

I’ll read each one and give my overview/interpretation on it and any other thoughts or questions that arise in the next blog… Looking forward to seeing where this goes.
