The development of the intellect, while necessary, is a means to an end. The intellect should become a means of penetrating into new dimensions of thought and consciousness, and of awakening the intuitive faculty of “pure reason”. Through occult meditation the gap is bridged between the threefold mind and the intuition.
The church in India is in duty bound to investigate and as far as possible of the religious values found in Hinduism the religion of the great majority of the Indian people which embodies the most searching quest in the natural order if the Divine that the world has known. The results of this investigation will show the way, towards an indigenous theology, which is a pressing need of Christianity in India. In India we are experiencing in every walk of life a peaceful revolution; in economics and politics the old views are giving way to new ones; in religion, ancient monistic views are re-interpreted and are posing a challenge to every other religion with renewed vigour and self-confidence. Many influential Hindu theologians today favour some kind of monism. Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan is undoubtedly the best known of all these modern Hindu thinkers. His position has become significant to resurgent Hinduism because he has attempted, with considerable success, to modernize Sankara who is the universally accepted St. Thomas of Hinduism. Like Sankara he is trying to restate the eternal meaning of the Hindu religions. If Sankara's mission was to the Hindus alone, Radhakrishnan's is to the entire world. In recent years Christian intellectuals of India are showing a growing interest in him, because he evaluates every point in Christian theology in the light of the re-interpreted religion of the Upanishads.
Fiction, Intuition, and Creativity is a search for the origins of fiction and for an understanding of how these origins influence the finished work of art. It examines the connection between the creative process and fictional form by discussing how intuitive consciousness provides the environment in which creativity flourishes and how writers make use of intuitive creativity in their novels. Looking first at how the link between intuition and creativity has been explored in philosophy, psychology, and aesthetics by thinkers such as Henri Bergson, William James, Carl Jung, and Benedetto Croce, the book proceeds to an extended discussion of what novelists reveal about the workings of their creative processes, focusing on the intuitive dimension of aesthetic activity. This includes the role of the unconscious and of emotion, the need for an incubation period before the novel emerges into consciousness, and the sense that characters inhabit an autonomous realm and frequently operate beyond the control of their authors. The works of four novelists are discussed in depth. In the fiction of Charlotte Brontë, intuition functions as content; the intuitive consciousness of Jane Eyre and Lucy Snowe empowers them to know and to act in a world that would impede their ability to do both. Henry James's life-long fascination with his creative process and his understanding of its intuitive underpinnings lead to the development of his later style and his focus on consciousness. Virginia Woolf's career is analyzed as a steady progression toward her reshaping of the novel into an intuitive vehicle. In the fiction of Doris Lessing, intuition again appears as content as Lessing makes intuitive consciousness the basis of her psychic politics. This unique work offers much for those interested in the structure and development of fiction, the subject of creativity and intuitive consciousness, or in the four authors analyzed at length in the text. Angela Hague is Professor of English at Middle Tennessee State University. She is the author or editor of numerous works, including Teleparody: Predicting/Preventing the Television Discourse of the Future. Praise for the book: "This book will change the view of how these four authors-- Brontë, James, Woolf, and Lessing--are read. . . . Hague's style is accessible and the readings of the novels provocative."-- Annis Pratt, Professor Emerita, University of Wisconsin-Madison "An outstanding work . . . Hague's exploration of the connection between intuition and creativity addresses a neglected topic. Her command of philosophical contexts is assured and her readings of the novels are wonderfully illuminating."--Prof. Alistair M. Duckworth, University of Florida "[A] groundbreaking study. Hague's approach leads to many fresh readings of the novels discussed. Highly recommended."--J.E. Steiner, Choice
Ancient Techniques to Access the Wisdom of Your Soul

Colleen Mauro founded Intuition: A Magazine for the Higher Potential of the Mind to introduce readers to the emerging field of intuition development. In her new book, she takes readers beyond the intuition basics and introduces them to the next step—a more advanced form of intuitive perception called spiritual telepathy. This book provides the ancient mind-training techniques that will allow you to access the wisdom and guidance of your own soul. These techniques, once taught in the ancient mystery schools come from a body of knowledge called the Ageless Wisdom. The Wisdom teachings tell us that the soul is our gateway to the higher worlds. Through the soul, we have access to the universal or divine mind where information on all subjects can be found. In the past, it's been only the "special" people—our saints, shamans and spiritual leaders—who have had access to the higher worlds. Colleen assures us that we can all gain access to that universal wellspring of inspiration and knowledge.
