The English of Savitri Volume 2
Mar 06, Rogier rated it it was amazing Shelves: religion , spirituality. This is a fascinating book. I read it not quite as intended, simply because a good friend recommended it. One would suspect that this is a sincere path, which may work for some. In my own case I simply feel that ACIM is more to the point for me, so I don't get overly excited about yet another path, but the book seems very helpful in the way it takes the reader by the hand, and helps us bust through the walls of preconceived notions.

Jul 31, Srayliji rated it it was amazing. A serious, no nonsense guide to awareness and awakening. For serious spiritual seekers, for sure.
Essential, put away your other spiritual books! Sep 20, Lori rated it it was amazing. I'm doing his method! Jan 13, Shaun House rated it really liked it. I do not believe this book is for everyone at any moment in their life and the author stating that this is the only book you need, does the literature disservice. The religious and spiritual text I've read increased my confidence in the ideas presented. With that said, if this is one of the first spiritual books you've read or the only time you've attempted to look inward, I don't believe you will gain much.
Because of the directness, I believe that either you will be completely deterred by such a difficult task as the one presented with your ego being skeptical, as the text says it will , or you will be enthralled and create "spiritual intellectuality," rather than having a direct experience. Sep 28, Beth rated it really liked it. Although quite methodical in its approach to Absolute Truth, Enlightenment, Awareness, etc.

Excellent book; though, again, quite methodical which at times became a little monotonous. One of the best books ever written giving a practical nondual teaching and several methods of direct inquiry or direct abiding. It substitutes the word 'awareness' for 'consciousness' in places. This book has been o One of the best books ever written giving a practical nondual teaching and several methods of direct inquiry or direct abiding.
This book has been one of my core 'teachers' for a number of years, and I go back to it on occasion. Highly practical and highly recommended.

For this poetry is an attempt to express life, not to explain it. It offers pictures or reports rather than analyses of religious experience. It gives utterance to the real life of religion in the individual soul, and is not a generalization of religious thoughts and feelings.
The sources from which this collection has been drawn are abundant and varied. The psalmody and hymnology of the church furnish a vast preserve, the exploration of which would be a large undertaking. It must be confessed that the pious people who had in their hands some of the ancient hymn-books were justified in feeling that religion and poetry were not closely related, for many of the hymns they were wont to sing were guiltless of any poetic character.
It was too often evident that the hymn-writer had been more intent on giving metrical form to proper theological concepts than on giving utterance to his own religious life. But the feeling has been growing that in hymns, at any rate, life is more than dogma; and we have now some collections of hymns that come pretty near being books of poetry. The improvement in this department of literature within the past twenty-five years has been marked.
There is still, indeed, in many hymnals, and especially in hymnals for Sunday schools and social meetings, much doggerel; but large recent contributions of hymns which are true poetry, many of the best of them from American sources, have made it possible to furnish our congregations with admirable manuals of praise. The indebtedness of religion to poetry which is thus expressed in the hymnology of the church is very large. Probably many of us are indebted for definite and permanent religious conceptions and impressions quite as much to felicitous phrases of hymns as to any words of sermon or catechism.
Our most positive convictions of religious truth are apt to come to us in some line or stanza that tells the whole story. The rhythm and the rhyme have helped to fix it and hold it in the memory. This is true not only of the hymns of the church but of many poems that are not suitable for singing. English poetry is especially rich in meditative and devotional elements, and of no period has this been more true than of the nineteenth century. The century has been one of great perturbations in religious thought; the advent of the evolutionary philosophy threatened all the theological foundations, and there was need of a thorough revision of the dogmas which were based on a mechanical theology, and of a reinterpretation of the life of the Spirit.
In all this the poets have given us the strongest help.

The great poet cannot be oblivious of these deepest themes. He need not be a dogmatician, indeed he cannot be, for his business is insight, not ratiocination; but the problems which theology is trying to solve must always be before his mind, and he must have something to say about them, if he hopes to command the attention of thoughtful men.
Yet while we need not depreciate the service that has been rendered by preachers and professional theologians who have sought to put the facts of the religious life into the forms of the new philosophy, we must own our deeper obligation to the poets, by whose vision the spiritual realities have been most clearly discerned. It was Wordsworth, perhaps, who gave us the first great contribution to the new religious thought by bringing home to us the fact that God is in his world; revealing himself now as clearly as in any of the past ages.
To him, as Dr. The world without answers to the world within, because God is the soul of both. The mystical faith by which man is united to God can have no clearer confession.
The same great testimony to the divine Presence in our lives is borne by many other witnesses in memorable words. Sometimes they have helped us to believe, by identifying themselves with us in our struggles with the doubts that loosen our hold on the great realities. No man of the last century has done more for Christian belief than Alfred Tennyson, albeit he has been a confessed doubter. But what he said of Arthur Hallam is quite as true of himself:. It is the faith that lives in honest doubt that his heart applauds. He is thinking of the fact that it is real faith in God which leads men to doubt the dogmas which misrepresent God.
But conscious as he is of the shadow that lies upon our field of vision, he is always insisting that it is in the light and not in the shadow that we must walk. Therefore, although demonstration is impossible, faith is rational. Tennyson has touched with light more than one problem of the soul.
The little stanza beginning.
His daring and triumphant optimism makes us ashamed of doubt. It would be a grateful task to make extended record of the service rendered to religion by the great choir of singers whose names appear upon the pages of this book. To Elizabeth Barrett Browning our debt is large, though her note is oftenest plaintive and the faith which she illustrates is that by which suffering is turned to strength. Our own New England psalmist, also, has been to great multitudes a revealer and a comforter; few in any age have seen the central truths of Christianity more clearly, or felt them more deeply, or uttered them more convincingly.
How many there are, whose faces we never saw, but who by some luminous word, some strain vibrant with tenderness, some flash of insight, have endeared themselves to us forever!
