Theosophy | The Concept of Maya

In Yogic philosophy it is said that the only thing that is real is the eternal, absolute and infinite consciousness that is the backdrop of this whole illusion of physical life. May is the veil and illusion that we are experiencing when we are seeing and experiencing life through our five senses.
Maya is the attachment to physical life and thinking that this is the only real thing. While in yoga we say that the universe is unreal, but the consciousness is the only real aspect. This consciousness is us and we are part of this as much as we are a part of it.
When we identify ourselves with limiting beliefs and adjuncts it’s called upadhi, thinning that the physical attributes that we have are what we are. Furthermore, avidya is the ignorance that makes us forget that we are atman, consciousness/Self. The individual soul, Jiva, is the aspect that gets reborn and is limited by the uphadis.
In conclusion, the remembrance that we are more than our body, mind and physical attribute, is when we start understanding that this veil is not real. We do not become one with the changes and shifts of the world and the mind, we do not identify with worldly events and we start devoting our path to sadhana, spiritual practice, to remind ourselves of our own eternity.

Theosophical Society | The Ancient Wisdom and the Occult Side of Sound | Eduardo Javier Gramaglia

Is it possible to understand not only the objective phenomenon of sound, but also its inner causes? Explore the power of sound, its relationship with the etheric realms, some of its cosmological implications, and its link with human intuition.

The use of intuition and creative imagination has been an essential part of the work of great scientists and artists. How were great composers, scientists, and thinkers able to “sense” higher realities, translate them, and then step them down into concrete thoughts, music, words, or mathematical formulae? Does the universe or planet sound our own notes, or do we?

These reflections will take us to the core of the matter: What is meant by “The Harmony of the Spheres,” which famed occultist H.P. Blavatsky claimed not to be a mere philosophical fancy, but a reality?

Eduardo Javier Gramaglia holds a degree in classical philology from National University. He gives seminars, workshops, and lectures on a wide range of Theosophical subjects. His main area of research is the late Hellenistic tradition, particularly its hermetic texts on mystery traditions and astrology. He published Hermetic Astrology in 2006, the first book in Spanish on the ancient astrological traditions. He has taken part in international conventions, given seminars, and published two English translations of Ancient Greek astrological manuals. Eduardo teaches Ancient Religion and Myth, as well as Sanskrit language and literature at National University. He is also the principal pianist and harpsichordist of the Municipal Chamber Orchestra in Cordoba, Argentina and teaches musical analysis and the history of music.

Sue’s Bread Pudding

If you’ve read CPM’s recent posts on The People Feeding Project, you know that we move a lot of food around weekly, shuffling ingredients from here to there and cooking things to hand out to the city’s hungry.  A lot of food gets handed out. But the truth of the matter is that what we cook id free or mostly free.  And we aren’t the only ones shuffling around ingredients either. This recipe features bread, which we are gifted weekly via our friend Liz from her friend Camilla, who retrieves day old bread from bakeries in Napa, which then arrive to Food Is Free Solano.  Day old bread is PERFECT for bread pudding.  Also, the eggs come from our egg supplier (on their way to expiration but still fine) and the sugar, coconut, toasted pecans and cinnamon was a gift from our friend Alexis, who recently…

CPM and The People Feeding Project, Vol. 2

Cook Plant Meditate

During the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the US government provided funds and USDA food boxes to help feed its food insecure citizens. It’s estimated (as of 2020) that 13.8% of the population is food insecure, and nearly 44 million people use food stamps. The USDA food box program, a lifeline for hungry Americans, has now ended.

Enter Food Is Free Solano. They collect food from food banks, schools, and just about any source that has extra food that would otherwise go to waste. Each week, CPM collects still edible salads and almond milk destined for the dumpster and delivers them to Food Is Free.

Founded and operated by Heather Pierini and a gaggle of great volunteers, they provide food to anyone. For free. You don’t need to qualify to get free food from Food Is Free Solano, which is helping our food insecure neighbors survive another week without wondering…

Energy Update | September 23, 2021

Sun has left earthy Virgo and moved into airy Libra, the sign of peace, harmony and equality. It is highly relationship oriented and Libras usually compromise themselves to please others.
Sun is the Self. Venus, the ruler of Libra (and Taurus) is about what we value and the pleasures of the physical existence. When we have reached the 7th house in the zodiac which Libra and Venus rules, we come to a point where it is not all about the Self, it is about the union and the duality. Me in relation with you. Twoness and relationships, both personal, romantic and business.
During the Libra season we want to make sure that others are doing well and we do not like any type of drama. We want harmony and balance around us and we are getting used to the shifting of the seasons. We are more diplomatic and careful of speaking our truths if it could hurt someone else. We need to be careful to not get passive aggressiv though and we need to balance being by ourselves with being with others.
How many of you are Libra babies? How is the energy feeling to you?

in what is proper and only then
try to instruct others. Doing this,
