Pablo Sender discusses how pain and suffering can be used to foster spiritual growth. The experience of life brings us joy and sorrow. While most of us readily embrace joy, we tend to regard sorrow as a mistake, as something that should not have its place in life. The Theosophical tradition, however, postulates that pain can become a blessing in disguise if we understand it properly and learn how to relate to it in a spiritual way. The subjects covered in this course are the following:  1) Introduction 2) Learning the Law 3) Rooting out Desire 4) Transitory vs. Eternal 5) Seeking the Eternal 6) Conscious Use of Pain 7) Strength and Compassion

This course prepared by Barbara Hebert explores a more in-depth understanding of the concept of reincarnation, based primarily on a book by Annie Besant. Reincarnation is one of the primary concepts discussed in the theosophical literature. It not only explains the obvious injustices and inequities found in the physical world, but it also provides us with a rationale for them. As Annie Besant writes:  Human beings are to reunite the separated aspects of the One, to bring the Spirit to self-consciousness on all planes. Such is their sublime task, for the accomplishment of which reincarnation is to be their tool.   This course covers the following subjects: The meaning of reincarnation The septenary nature of the human being A discussion about what it is that reincarnates and what does not reincarnate The process of reincarnation Thought power and its association with reincarnation Transmigration The goal of reincarnation Reincarnation and the Law of Periodicity The Case of the existence of reincarnation A discussion regarding why some people object to the idea of reincarnation
