CYCLES OF ETERNITY: AN OVERVIEW OF THE AGELESS WISDOM
112 pages A4 square format with full colour diagrams and illustrations
Price £10.00 plus postage and packing
Everything in the universe seen and unseen is alive, connected and on an eternal evolutionary journey.
There are universal laws and inter-connected ideas pre-dating and underpinning science, philosophy and religion, explaining the evolution and workings of both the universe and human beings. This is known as the Ageless Wisdom or Theosophy.
This ancient knowledge offers a compelling, comprehensive and convincing view of ourselves and the cosmos and yet it is entirely modern in its outlook.
CYCLES OF ETERNITY provides a concise digest of the timeless truths and universal laws which shape us, our world and the universe beyond. As the sub-title suggests, this is merely an overview of a vast and fascinating body of knowledge which offers a coherent and comprehensive explanation of human and cosmic evolution.
Rather than just focusing on theory this richly illustrated book emphasises the practical uses of this wisdom wherever possible. It is offered at a time when there is an increasing interest in human consciousness and psycho-spiritual development without the prejudices and preconceptions of sceptical science or worn-out religion.
CYCLES OF ETERNITY is the most concise and coherent overview of this knowledge to appear in the 21st Century.
The key topics covered include:
Karma, death and reincarnation
The after-death states and re-birth
Human and cosmic evolution
The constitution of the cosmos
The human make-up
Chakras and etheric energies
The Seven Rays
The hidden planes of existence
Energies and forces
The seven kingdoms of nature
The Masters of Wisdom
CYCLES OF ETERNITY
It is the most eye catching Theosophical book of the Century. Very readable and impressive.
On behalf of my lodge members it is the best presentation of basic theosophical teachings that they have seen. In particular the modern and lively format has impressed many who otherwise viewed theosophical books as rather dry and boring and I have no doubt that your book will become the default introduction for new members to the TS.
Alan Perry, Dhyana Centre, London
What a simply splendid book!
Geraldine Beskin, The Atlantis Bookshop, London
This inspirational book is very attractively presented and encourages one to be drawn in to explore its contents. As an overview of esoteric Ageless Wisdom it is one of the most accessible books of its kind that I have seen.
It's the first book I have ever seen, that can be understood by the general public, explaining Theosophical aims, teachings and objectives. Attractive in its lay out, it is clear and concise without being loaded with too much information.
James Fitzpatrick, Basingstoke T.S.
Absolutely outstanding. Just perfect for the serious seeker of the day.
I think this is a major contribution to our work in the TS.
Eric McGough, former president of Theosophical Society in England
It would make a super book for us to give to new members of the Welsh Section. It has just enough knowledge to inform them of the vast scope of the Wisdom without going into too much complicated detail. The presentation with all those lovely pictures is fabulous! I think it is so important these days to inform new members of the genuine Ageless Wisdom when there is so much glamour, greed and so called 'spiritual' miss-information being made available. Your Book is perfect for these times.
What a fabulous book! I see it as a brilliant introduction/exploration of all the major topics in theosophy and a must-have for all investigators. I love the humour and the quotes. The visuals are first rate, the paper is great, and it is SO easy to read - a complete polar opposite to almost all other theosophical texts. It's a book I'd be proud to give to anyone as a present.
This could be a first – a Theosophical book that is a riveting read.
I found it to be an excellent piece of work. A really good overview of the Ageless Wisdom, with great use of illustrations and diagrams. A vibrant and engaging book that I'm sure will be a great introduction to many new to the subject, and also offering much to those already familiar with it.
Much more accessible for people new to the ideas than HPB's works, marvellous though they are.
As an enthusiastic follower of Theosophy but a self-confessed dunderhead I love it.
Such a lovely overview of the ancient wisdom. It's quite beautifully put together and the information quite succinct.
Exquisite. I love the illustrations, your choice of quotations and the clarity of the presentation. As I opened the book I felt it was significant that it had been sent to me. Thank you.
I can sincerely say it is a very well presented book with excellent artwork. Overall, a very credible piece of work.
Damon Scothern, General Manager, Theosophical Society in England Headquarters
The clarity of the information delivered is just brilliant. I have read many tomes in my time and I have to say I think you nailed it, plus that layout is lovely and modern.
I have just been reading your 'beautiful' book, wow. If only someone had given me this book 13 years ago when I joined the Theosophical Society perhaps I would not have been so confused, and misinterpreted all of the books and lectures that have come and gone. You put everything in 'normal' language, and that is so refreshing.
A great book giving a good introduction to theosophy in a very readable and concise format. I found this book a very good read, and I could hardly put it down.
It is very beautiful as well as being full of wise words.
It is a wonderful book, just beautiful to look at and the snippets brilliant.
Fantastic quality and so well presented.
The book is beautiful and represents an excellent and concise introduction to what is pretty much the entire gamut of the wisdom teachings. The content is presented in contemporary language which is both easily accessible and very inspiring. This should make an excellent discussion/study guide.
Congratulations on Cycles Of Eternity which ‘went down a storm’ at The Theosophical Society’s International Headquarters in Adyar, India.
Jenny Baker, President, Theosophical Society in England
It was just what I needed at this stage of my learning of Theosophy. Being profoundly deaf, I am unable to go to meetings or listen to talks and rely on books to learn of the Ancient Wisdom.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it very helpful, particularly the information on globes and rounds which I’ve always struggled with. Also, it is good to have a book with a modern viewpoint on the ancient teachings. I read a small section each morning with my coffee and this got the day off to a really good start. I feel a bit bereft now that I have finished it and my morning coffee is just not the same.
The book is a delight to read, clear and beautifully illustrated and as a relative newcomer to Theosophy has been very helpful with my understanding. It will certainly form the basis of further theosophical study and practice in my case.
I have read your book and would like to say that I find it extraordinary. It is beautifully presented and covers so much in such accessible form. It is very easy to read and very clear, which is not always the case with books on esoteric subjects. It subtly invites the reader to discover more.
I have been a member of the TS since I was a teenager – 55 years now – and have never seen a more accessible introduction to the Ageless Wisdom. Thank you so much !
A dear spiritual friend in Epsom, UK (Susan Dowlatshahi who used to be a lecturer with the TS there) kindly sent me your recent book, Cycles of Eternity and I am moved to write to you and congratulate you on an amazing work. Your wonderfully clear explanations of every major facet of the teachings plus the superb graphics make this a much needed and excellent, unique contribution to the literature. It is great for newcomers but also great for those who have been at it for sometime.
Fiona Odgren, Vancouver, Canada
Thank you for the excellent presentation of Theosophy. Your work fills a long time void in presentation of Theosophical ideas in a comprehensive yet concise manner. Theosophical students present and future will owe you a debt of gratitude for being able to fill in so many missing blanks. I am grateful for your work. I have placed an order inquiry for 7 copies for our Lodge programs. I have been an active member of The T.S. for 48 years now, having joined in 1969. During this time I have been active in Theosophical Education, holding regular Theosophy classes for beginners. William ( Bill) Delahunt, Secretary,The Theosophical Society In Orlando
If a young person came to me and asked for ONE book that would help him or her grasp the overall thesis of the Society, I now think this would be the book I would suggest. It is different from most of our older books, but familiar to any Theosophist. The illustrations are first class and give the book a comprehensive overview.
This beautiful book was sent to us for review by the author. I assumed it would be expensive since it was a high quality book. However, it apparently was underwritten because the cost is not nearly enough to cover its production.
It is obviously a book created with extensive and loving care. Mr. Wyatt is a very eclectic person who has spent most of his life searching and this book reflects his quest. The book is very Theosophical in nature.
The essence of the text is given in six Chapters. They are titled: Ideas beyond time, Life on earth, The human project, Infinite cycles, A boundless universe, and Other avenues of awareness. His selection of text and illustrations are so well matched that is must have taken years before this combination was selected. His reading list at the end is also very well balanced.
Well done Tim Wyatt.
