THE FINDING OF THE THIRD EYE - VERA STANLEY ALDER - RIDER REPRINT 1960 - FIRST PUBLISHED 1938. HARDBACK
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! TODAY IS A SUNNY WARM DAY IN NORTH WEST ENGLAND. A RARE THING THIS YEAR. I'M ENJOYING LOOKING THROUGH MY BOOK COLLECTION, AND DISCOVERING GEMS I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT. I HOPE YOU ARE TOO.
TODAY I HAVE A BOOK BY:
'MISS ALDER OFFERS US A GUIDE TO ATTAINMENT THROUGH THE PATH OUTLINED BY THE ANCIENT WISDOM.'
PREFACE BY ALICE BAILEY.
'WHEN A MAN BECOMES AN INDIVIDUAL SEEKER HIS FIRST EFFORT IS TO DISCOVER WHAT HE CAN OF 'FACTS' CONNECTED WITH THE FUNDAMENTAL TRUTHS OF LIFE. HE WANTS PROOFS.
HIS INEXPERIENCED EYES ARE UNABLE TO DETECT THE TRUE FROM THE FALSE...
THESE CHAPTERS HAVE BEEN WRITTEN IN AN EFFORT TO PROVIDE THE SEEKER WITH A SIMPLE GUIDE-BOOK FOR HIS PILGRIMAGE TO TRUTH...'
'IN THIS BOOK AN EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO SORT OUT, SUMMARISE AND COMPARE THE ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE WITH MODERN SCIENCE.
THE QUEST AFTER TRUTH OPENS UP AN UNIMAGINED AND WONDERFUL NEW WORLD TO THE SEEKER...'
This is a book intended for the 'man in the street', to enable an understanding of, according to Alice Bailey, 'two lines of continuity which the history of the past reveals to the attentive student. ...the continuity of the WISDOM TEACHING,...secondly, the continuity of MESSENGERS...
In the first chapter we are presented with a pessimistic view of life as it is today. We have been living in ignorance through the 'Dark
Ages', for centuries.
Now more people are beginning to search for the truth -
...to emerge from the 'blackness'...
there exists a secret knowledge, which has always existed but remains hidden for ever from all but the earnest seeker...Men have suffered so much, and for so long, through ignorance...
We have reached a time when we demand to know...
and to know for ourselves ...and to wield that knowledge irrespective of authority.
and the knowledge is to be found!
OUR FIRST CLUE TO THIS KNOWLEDGE LIES IN THE STUDY OF WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE SECRET WISDOM.
I ADMIT THAT I BOUGHT THIS BOOK A FEW YEARS AGO, AND SOMEHOW I NEVER GOT AROUND TO READING IT. SO NOW, IT HAS AROUSED MY INTEREST AND I WILL BE KEEPING IT ON THE COFFEE TABLE.
SO THAT, MY FRIENDS IS A SHORT INTRODUCTION TO ANOTHER BOOK THAT, HOPEFULLY HAS WET YOUR APPETITE AND PROMPTED YOU TO CONTINUE IN YOUR SEARCH FOR TRUTH.
SO MOTE IT BE! BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, MAY PEACE BE YOUR MANTLE. X
