There are many New Age concepts that are discussed today. Most of them have originated from the work that was done decades ago. One of the primary movers in this esoteric way of thinking was a woman by the name of Helena Blavatsky. She was well known for her books that she had written, and was a proponent of what is called the Spiritualist movement. She believed in the Masters of the Ancient Wisdom, information that she gathered over time in her travels through Tibet and throughout the world. Some of these teachings ended up creating different spiritual teachings of their own, and one of those is called Divine Science another The Ageless Wisdom . Let's see how these relate, and discuss this New Age way of perceiving the world.
What Is Divine Science?
This can be referenced in a couple of different ways. First of all, it refers to what is called New Thought. The Church of Divine Science was started in San Francisco in California back in 1888, the same year that Helena Blavatsky's magnum opus the Secret Doctrine was published. Both of these teachings come from a very similar point of view. There is an underlying force that all things originate from. As a result of that, life itself is an illusion, a common thought that permeates both Hindu and Buddhist it thinking. Similar contemporary concepts have been popularized in writings and also movies such as The Matrix. There is this belief that the world that we see around us is in part the result of the way that we perceive the world, and the other part is based solely upon illusion. More specifically, Divine Science refers to the manifestations of God in Creation, with all references to God being an entity that is literally all things. Although many of their influences have come from the teachings found out the Unity Church, and people such as Charles Fillmore, Mdm. Blavatsky most certainly had some impact.
These teachings are designed to allow people that deviate from traditional religious thought such as that found in Catholicism or Christianity, teachings that allow the individual to develop their own unique viewpoint based upon a completely different premise. This premise is that we are all one, part of the One that is all things, and that through our individual perceptions and personal efforts, we can begin to peel back that veil of illusion to learn more about ourselves and the universe around us.
