In Part 1 of this three-part series, we ended with the encouragement to "Focus on Reality." But what is reality? While we covered some aspects of the Real vs. the Unreal, in the first class, we will look deeper into the true nature of Reality using Buddhist science and The Voice of the Silence, among other sources.
Some of the issues we will discuss include the difference between Conceptual Reality and Ultimate Reality (also called Conceptual Truth vs. Ultimate Truth); Objective Reality vs. Subjective Reality; how the Real is hidden in the Void; and what it means when Blavatsky said "The Mind is the great slayer of the Real. Let the Disciple slay the Slayer"
Clare Goldsberry is a life-long student of religion and spiritual traditions. When she discovered Buddhism in 1994, she began to understand the meaning of life, why we are manifest in this time and space, and how phenomena exist. She joined The Theosophical Society in 1997 after discovering its connection with Buddhist philosophy. At that point she was introduced to the importance of science in the Buddhist (and ultimately the Hindu) tradition. Clare has been a professional freelance writer most of her adult life and has published seven books.
Her latest book, published by Monkfish Book Publishing, is "The Illusion of Life and Death: Mind, Consciousness, and Eternal Being". More of her writing can be found on her website: https://claregoldsberry.com
