Magazine "Lucifer - the Light-bringer"

This magazine, of the Dutch division of The Theosophical Society (Point Loma - The Hague) appears bi-monthly. It demonstrates how the theosophical teachings are to be applied in human life. Lucifer differentiates itself from other opinion-magazines through the consistent searching into the causes of the problems. The criterion for this is the extensive knowledge of the Universal Esoteric Philosophy as this is taught in Theosophy. This 'different' approach to individual and social problems gives a refreshing outlook and offers new possibilities of solving these problems effectively.

The 'technical' teachings of Theosophy are never objectives in themselves. In Lucifer the ethical consequences are always drawn from them by applying these teachings to the actual problems with which mankind is struggling. In this light it is nearly superfluous to say that great value is put on the letters to the editor.

Science, philosophy and religion, and especially the interconnection between these three in human thinking are widely dealt with. It is made clear that universal compassion is the basic pattern of Nature. The articles in Lucifer appeal particularly to the individual thinking faculty of the readers. But above all it is demonstrated that Theosophy offers Man a solid foundation for a philosophy of life with a perspective. Lucifer is a publication of the I.S.I.S. Foundation and is available in the form of single copies or an annual subscription.

Lucifer, the Light-bringer - No. 1 - 2015

Lucifer Vol. 1 2015

We are glad to present you the first issue of Lucifer, the Light-bringer, of 2015. This year too, we plan to publish 3 or 4 issues.

The first two articles have a direct significance for our understanding of the Theosophy, which was presented in our age by H.P. Blavatsky. How timeless is the message of H.P. Blavatsky? And how do you prove Theosophy? Whoever is not satisfied with a vague ‘believing’, would not ask himself these questions? And wishes a precise answer?

The enormous tensions and violence between various religious sects ask for a theosophical answer. The article “Esoteric Islam” gives a thorough contribution to this aim. As stated in the article: “It is high time to take a closer look at Islam and its principles in the hope that more people will discover the real fundamentals of this religion.”

The last article focuses on the relation between Theosophy and science. A small but growing number of scientists think that electromagnetism is the main organizing force behind the universe. This is contrary to the generally accepted view on gravity. This article shows that the theosophical teachings related to Consciousness, Emanation and Fohat are able to explain the discovered facts.

Just like earlier issues, your questions and comments on this issue are welcome.

Lucifer, the Light-bringer - No. 3 - 2014

Lucifer Vol. 3 2014

We are glad to present to you the third issue of 2014. In 2013, when we started our English magazine, we published two issues. This year we were able to present to you three issues. And we are already busy to prepare the first one for 2015.

But not only the number of issues is increasing. We are pleased that this year we could welcome quite a few new readers from all over the world. Moreover, we are very happy with receiving more encouraging reactions and interesting questions about the articles.

This issue is the report of the I.S.I.S. Symposium ‘How our consciousness changes our brain’. We think that this Lucifer may shine a bright light on this highly topical subject.

As always, we look forward to your questions and comments.

Lucifer, the Light-bringer - No. 2 - 2014

Lucifer No. 2 2014

We are very pleased to present this year’s second issue of Lucifer – the Light-bringer. The previous editions were received well. We got some encouraging reactions from all over the world. That inspires us to continue with our magazine in the hope it will contribute to give Theosophy its rightful place in the world.

We are still convinced that we can realize the objective of Lucifer, which is, to say it in the words of H.P. Blavatsky, to bring light to the hidden things of darkness; to show in their true aspect and their original real meaning things and names, men and their doings and customs; it is finally to fight prejudice, hypocrisy and shams in every nation, in every class of Society, as in every department of life.

We know that we can reach that goal only in cooperation with you, reader.

We present the digital version of Lucifer for free. We will publish this magazine a couple of times per year. Are you interested to receive following issues of Lucifer, please subscribe for free by sending an e-mail to lucifer.red[at]isis-foundation.org*.

Practical Spirituality - Lucifer, the Light-bringer - No. 1 - 2014

Lucifer No. 1 2014

Practical spirituality beyond matter, in society

We are glad to present the third issue of Lucifer – the Light-bringer. In contrast to the former issues, this one has a central theme: ‘Practical spirituality beyond matter, in society’.
It is meant to present clear and inspiring theosophical answers to the growing confusion around ‘spirituality’ in the world.

The articles in this issue are closely linked to each other, forming one unity. Step by step, the important questions are addressed. These articles are the transcripts of the lectures held at the 2013 Symposium of The Theosophical Society Point Loma-Blavatskyhuis in The Hague.

What is practical spirituality?

Spirituality is ‘hot’. There are many courses and books available. But how do you find your way through all of this information? Is this something you are able to do yourself or should you rely on others?

Above all there is the question why you should live spiritually. Is spirituality too ‘woolly’ and of no practical use or is living spiritually the answer to all of life’s problems?

There is more than just the spiritual and the material World. Spirit is sometimes depicted as the wind, invisible for our eyes. But not everything that we cannot see, hear or touch is spiritual. Where does the material end and where does the spiritual start? How do we make the distinction between unpractical woollyness and clear practical spirituality? There is a clear standard that can be used to discriminate between true and false spirituality.

We present the digital version of Lucifer for free. We will publish this magazine a couple of times per year. Are you interested to receive following issues of Lucifer, please subscribe for free by sending an e-mail to lucifer.red[at]isis-foundation.org*.
