Indeed it is entirely correct to term the 'Thinker'
in the collective annotation. For indeed the thinker is the real Man, the soul, that doth not live by bread alone but by food
for the heart. The food for thy thoughts is the kingdom of heaven which is the realm of the great white brotherhood in total.
The clarion call of which is duly sounded by the Christ as head.
Heavens, we are all thinkers who toil in the daily
labor of building that great temple made without hands. All great thinkers such as the great philosopher Plato and all the
greats are true thinkers and builders in psychic energy. Something upon which I shall now duly ponder.
I would like very much to thank you for bringing the
subject of Plato and the Thinker to my attention. Indeed I have given it some considerable thought and indeed conclude and
present, albeit tentatively and hypothetically that the two may indeed be one and the same identities, at least insomuch as
Plato was theoretically one incarnation, of most importance, as an avatar to human thought, one incarnation of the timeless
Thinker so mentioned!
I have made a number of highly conclusive, maybe controversial
connections from the material yet available and from my limited thought power that I am able at this time to bear upon the
It is highly intriguing and somewhat tantalizing to
our collective imaginations to ponder as to the real name of the 'Thinker' of which an incarnation was the great Avatar Plato.
The only information we have as yet, is that it is perhaps quite different! JPC.
The Divine Thinker, Sanat Kumara. DINA2 377.
The Human Being Entity manifesting - The
Thinker, a Dhyan Chohan. EA 655.
The center of consciousness, the thinker, the Ego.
When the Thinker on his own plane withdraws his attention
from his little system within the three worlds and gathers within himself all his forces, then physical plane existence comes
to an end and all returns within the causal consciousness. TCF 85.
Most men do not as yet distinguish with accuracy between
themselves as the THINKER, persistent in time and space, and the vehicle through which they think, which is ephemeral and
transient. TCF 419.
The Thinker in the causal vehicle has to do three things:
Build and equip the causal body. Bring about conscious connection or control of the threefold lower nature through the agency
of the permanent atoms. Bridge the interlude between the causal body on its own level, and the manasic permanent atom. TCF
Ponder deeply upon the word "tchelovek" (man) it denotes
the thinker existing through ages. Comm 32.
The Thinker, the Divine Manasaputra. TCF 186.
Who is the Thinker? Man, in essential essence, is the
higher triad demonstrating through a gradually evolving form, the egoic or causal body, and utilizing the lower threefold
personality as a means to contact the lower three planes. TCF 261.
Then follows the fifth principle—the Manas, self-consciousness,
‘the Thinker’ (higher intelligence).
Kama Rupa - form (the subjective form of mental and
physical desires and thoughts, or the thinker in action.) LHR.
The Great Plato said: "Thoughts rule the world." LHR.
The path to Brotherhood is in thinking and in labor.
The Great Thinker decided to bring His knowledge from
the new planet. SMD1 179.
Teaching Avatars: These Appearances sound a new note
in the realm of thought and of consciousness; they reveal the next needed truth; they pronounce those words and formulate
those truths which throw light upon the spiritual development of humanity. Such Avatars were Plato. EXT 298.
The purpose of Our remarks is to remind you that though
the mission of the Thinker was indeed not an easy one, the results were great. SMD1 224.
Plato and Confucius were fifth round men. KH Letters.
Synthesis is another of the presented attributes and
is only now making its appeal for recognition - an appeal which can only evoke response from the higher types of men, even
though centuries have elapsed since Plato endeavored to picture forth the completeness of the Whole and the intricacy of the
ideas which have come forth as an expression of that Whole. Such great Revealers of emerging divine attributes as are Plato,
the Buddha or Christ differ radically from other Avatars in that They are so constituted that They are focal points through
which a new presented attribute can emerge as a thought form, and, therefore, impinge definitely upon the minds of the racial
thinkers. These Avatars are possessed by the attribute; They intelligently comprehend it and are used to "anchor" the attribute
in human consciousness. EPII 399.
The Thinker was a great philosopher. SMD3 566.
The greatest philosopher of the pre-Christian era.
HPB. Plato & Platonism.
Although twenty-two and a quarter centuries have elapsed
since the death of Plato, the great minds of the world are still occupied with his writings. He was, in the fullest sense
of the word, the world's interpreter. Isis Unveiled. 11. H.P. Blavatsky.
The Thinker spoke precisely about this over two thousand
years ago. Does this not ring out as a great rebuke to humanity? Men have perfected themselves in the techniques of killing
one another, but have lost the ability to contemplate Truth. And these words were repeated by the Thinker more than two thousand
If in those times the Thinker was appalled by the ferocity
and cruelty of people, what can one say about today? The bloody sacrifices to Moloch appear merciful compared with the murders
that are now taking place! How many times must We stress these words! How can people contemplate truths when their minds are
filled with a craving for murder? This, too, was said by the Thinker, and because of these words He was persecuted and sold
into slavery. SMD1 183.
The Thinker spoke about two essential forces within
man, his intellect and his wisdom. SMD 270.
On Plato: Apiration for this knowledge constitutes
what is really meant by philosophy -- the love of wisdom. The love of truth is inherently the love of good. IU 13. HPB.
The Thinker insisted, “Put on the armor of goodwill
and you will become unconquerable.” SMD4 850.
The example of the Thinker will be instructive. Even
when He was sold into slavery, He spoke about freedom and harmony in life. SMD1 237.
The Thinker and Anaxagoras repeated them often, and
both of them were persecuted and condemned. SMD1 187.
Thus the Thinker warned the citizens, and they hated
Him for it. Likewise He said, "Is it worthy to build the majestic Acropolis simply as a monument to your weakness?" The Teacher
foresaw the decline that was soon to begin, and that falsehood and hypocrisy would accelerate the coming of the end. SMD1
For the old Grecian sage there was a single object
of attainment: REAL KNOWLEDGE. He considered those only to be genuine philosophers, or students of truth, who possess the
knowledge of the really-existing, in opposition to the mere seeming; of the always-existing, in opposition to the transitory;
and of that which exists permanently, in opposition to that which waxes, wanes, and is developed and destroyed alternately.
IU 12. HPB.
There was a time in Athens when heralds officially
proclaimed that those citizens who dared even to utter the names of Pericles, Anaxagoras, Aspasia, Phidias, and their friends
would be driven into exile...
The Thinker said, "We know the names of Pericles, Anaxagoras,
Aspasia, and Phidias...
The Thinker also said, "The Guides are concerned about
the preservation of Beauty. Phidias was cast into prison, and by this act humanity cast itself into darkness. SMD 196.
From this band of disciples came those whom we call
Laotse and Confucius, who were sent to incarnate in China. From them also came Plato, and from among their followers Phidias
and many another of the greatest of the Greeks. CWL Hidden Side Of Things.
If one examines the reasons for the persecution of
the best minds of different nations, and compares the reasons for the persecution and banishment of Pythagoras, Anaxagoras,
Socrates, Plato, and others...
The Thinker used to say, "I wonder, do you persecute
me or drive me onward?" SMD1 222.
The Thinker said, “Here you are, calling ‘Plato,
Plato’, but perhaps the real name is quite different.” SMD3 609.
The Infinity of Pythagoras and Plato. SD1 426.
The Thinker said, “The symbol of knowledge is
Infinity.” SMD4 707.
The Thinker said, “I wish to observe the manifestations
of the Infinite.” SMD4 720.
The Thinker kept in mind the myth about Orpheus and
always reminded his disciples that Orpheus was a human being. SMD3 664.
"Under the legend, Orpheus seeks in the kingdom of
Pluto, his lost soul. Krishna rescues from Pluto his six principles, (Vol. II, 30) being the seventh himself...he is the perfect
initiate, the whole of his six principles merging into the seventh." SD Vol. III, 142.
Orpheus says, "The fair river of Ocean was the first
to marry, and he espoused his sister Tethys, who was his mothers daughter." Plato's "Dialogues," Cratylus, p. 402.
The Thinker affirmed, “Learn to want this. Become
citizens of the Supermundane World!” SMD4 796.
The Thinker said, “People are social beings,
and must ponder the building of a humane state.” We can now recall how the Thinker dreamt about a state founded upon
higher principles. SMD3 698.
Ancient philosophers did not include heartless people
in their concepts of government. Plato in his Republic and Aristotle in his Politics had in mind organized societies of intelligent
co-workers, and did not tolerate tyrants, hypocrites, or swindlers. It is impossible to imagine a strong state consisting
of hypocrites and swindlers. Hypocrisy is incompatible with the highest beliefs and knowledge, and a false foundation will
serve only a false structure. We do not approve of the slightest manifestation of hypocrisy, and believe that this vice begets
all other corrupt feelings. The Thinker opposed instantly the slightest trace of hypocrisy in his disciples. SMD1 244.
The Thinker said, “The King hounds and slanders
me so much that I am beginning to think there are germs of friendship in him. But it cannot be so, for he is not sufficiently
raging.” SMD3 624.
The Thinker used to say, “Citizen, why did you
bind one foot? One-legged, you will be unfit for a long journey!” SMD 453.
The Thinker urged His fellow-citizens to turn to the
good. In this way the activities of life would become a panacea. SMD3 460.
The Thinker strove to develop a true understanding
of the concept of the motherland. He used to say, “Citizen, serve your motherland and know that you came here to fulfill
a great duty.” SMD3 565.
This is especially true of Plato's many references
to the State, which may also be seen as a symbol of man -- man being a republic within himself composed of many citizens.
He reiterates the homology between the individual, the state, and the cosmos, similar to the Hermetic principle of analogy:
"As above, so below." On Timeus. www.
The Thinker loved the Hermetic saying, "As above, so
below." SMD2 304.
The philosopher said to the citizens, "You should feel
that Earth is like the center of the Universe,
then you will realize the entire duty and responsibility of man." But his
one of his words and an entirely different concept of the world was created. SMD1 222.
The Thinker used to say, “Let the gods of Olympus
teach me to discern the true causes of events.” SMD 598.
The Thinker taught, “Revere Hygeia, she can teach
you how to improve the health of the people.” SMD3 603.
Atlantis The continent that was submerged in the Atlantic
ocean, according to the occult teaching and Plato. IHS 216. Gloss.
The Thinker acknowledged the great age of Earth and
man. He affirmed that the planet has lived through many catastrophes. He also wrote about Atlantis, but people for a long
time have regarded it as just a myth. For the ignorant the most obvious reality can become a fairy tale. SMD3 556.
The Thinker taught, “Observe the course of the
luminaries. Everything earthly strives to the
Supermundane.” SMD4 706.
"Plato represented the planets as moved by an intrinsic
Rector... one with his dwelling, like a 'boatman in his boat'." (Secret Doctrine. Vol. I, 535) Helena Petrova Blavatsky.
The Thinker used to speak about the “invisible
battle.” SMD3 462.
The Thinker taught not to fear the middle way. SMD2
The Thinker was able to embrace the whole Cosmos with
His mind. People used to say, "It is better to err with Plato than to join the intellectual negators." Thus were the best
concepts realized in ancient days. SMD2 279.
Ages ago the Thinker was concerned with the broadening
of thought, for constraint of thought is unacceptable in philosophy. SMD2 296.
The Thinker said, "The time will come when a person
who speaks in Athens will immediately receive an answer from Corinth. Man will master space and realize that it is filled."
We can mention the philosopher Seneca, who suffered
greatly during Nero's reign, but whose consciousness remained undisturbed. Seneca inherited the mentality of the Thinker and
endured the most trying times of ancient Rome, yet was able to remain the solace of many. His discourses about ethics were
indispensable during those confusing days of little faith. Perhaps Seneca is less well known than the Thinker, but his work
has great significance. SMD1 237.
Thus did the Thinker bring encouragement. One can see
the complete application of these foundations in the Brotherhood. I quote for you the words of the Thinker because you know
how He labored for the Brotherhood. If someone says, "I want only to follow the Teaching of the Great Pilgrim," he will limit
his progress. But We appreciate his loving the Great Pilgrim with all his heart, for the heart is inexhaustible. SMD1 219.
I dedicate many discourses to the
Thinker because we must remember His tireless work. He devoted centuries of labor to the deepening of thought, for without
such self-sacrifice it would be impossible to achieve the transmission of thought to such vast distances. SMD! 236.
