Jealousy, Hatred, Ambition, and the Afterlife … by the Theosophists … with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 30 May 2015

Dear Ones,

There are Theosophical passages that indicate such feelings as jealousy, ambition and hatred, even when unexpressed through action in the world, cause suffering in the afterlife, during the phase when the astral body is slowly disintegrating.

The passages are from Arthur E. Powell’s book “The Astral Body and Other Phenomena,” … To preserve their copyright I must provide the reference rather than including the quotation. I hope this will not deter the reader from looking up the passages.

This is the statement that jealousy, hatred and ambition will cause suffering in the afterlife …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 … See “Chapter VII: Thought-Forms,” page 63, paragraph 3 (beginning “Most men recognize …”) to the end of page 221 (ending “… and to Initiation”).

Here are the pertinent passages on the afterlife:

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 “Chapter XIII: After-Death Life: Principles” …

  • page 113, first paragraph (beginning “It cannot be …” and ending “… the physical world”).
  • page 116, fourth paragraph (beginning “Many who die …” and ending “… utterly false conceptions”)
  • page 117, last paragraph (beginning “As already indicated …”) to page 119, last paragraph (ending “… perish comparatively rapidly”).

Note the reference to disintegration of the astral body at the end of page 117. The disintegration of the astral body then leaves the man free to rise to the mental realm for further Soul learning in a sort of ‘cocooning’ state, preparatory to the next incarnation.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
