May 27, 2015 The Divinity of Numbers and Metaphysics: A Tool for Discovering Truth

Ancient History, Esoteria, Metaphysics, Philosophy Comments Off on May 27, 2015 The Divinity of Numbers and Metaphysics: A Tool for Discovering Truth

PythagorasJoin us Wednesday May 27, 2015 at 6:30 PM for “The Divinity of Numbers and Metaphysics:  A Tool for Discovering Truth”

In this meeting, we’ll continue our study of Philosophy by learning about Pythagoras and his theory about the divinity of numbers.

Pythagoras and his followers proposed that there is a substance in the Cosmos that transcends physical matter and that the structure behind this transcendence is numbers. There’s a great line spoken by Christopher Walken in a movie where he plays the Archangel, Gabriel. We’ve all heard the line before, but Walken’s delivery of it makes it especially memorable, “See you kids. Study ya math. Key to the Universe.” Pythagoreans believed and taught that mathematics, is indeed the key to understanding everything in the Cosmos, including our own existence. They also taught that mathematics is the basis for all harmony and all discord. It is believed that Pythagoras developed or at least formalized the musical scale, using the harmony heard by the human ear as the basis.

What is there? What is reality? Can we know? Do minds actually exist? Are thoughts real? How do we go about answering questions such as those? Pythagoreans believe that Metaphysics is the best tool for discovering the answers. Metaphysics has two branches, ontology and epistemology. Ontology is the branch of metaphysics that deals with the nature of being. Epistemology is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion. We’ll learn about both methods and how metaphysics can be helpful in our individual search for Truth.

Note:  Don’t be concerned about the reference to math in the description. No math problems will be harmed (or, solved)  in the making of this presentation!! This presentation will lay the groundwork for other Philosophical topics in the future such as Plato’s Search for Truth!

Hope you’ll join us!

May 13, 2015 – What’s an Esoteric to do?

Esoteria, Metaphysics, Spirituality Comments Off on May 13, 2015 – What’s an Esoteric to do?

Living-in-the-Light-Energy_OM-TimesJoin us Wednesday May 13,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “What’s an Esoteric to do?presented by John Pickard.

Those of us who seek truth, the mysteries of the universe, hidden teachings, and spiritual enlightenment inevitably face a unique challenge:

How do we, as esoteric adherents, cope with living in a world so apparently overrun with negativity, raw materialism, ignorance and sometimes pure “evil“?

How do we pursue and focus on “light” when surrounded by so much “dark“?

Can (or should) we simply ignore the negative and only focus on the positive?

As members of the human community, but seeking below the surface for answers, where should our focus be?

What’s our role and approach while here on this orb?

Do the answers to these questions vary for different esoterians?

We’ll watch a brief video about this challenge then have an open panel discussion of all attendees, giving everyone a chance to share their challenges, wisdom and approach. What works for you? What doesn’t? What challenges have you personally faced on your journey?  Come share, listen and learn among your fellow light workers.
