According to the teachings of Theosophy, evolution is a process that not only involves physical matter but consciousness as well. Each living organism is the vehicle for some type of consciousness. Throughout nature we can easily see numerous gradations of consciousness as it manifests within the plant and animal kingdom. As consciousness slowly evolves, it becomes embodied in increasingly more complex and sensitive vehicles. In the human kingdom, we have yet to unfold many of the potential powers that lie within. In this lecture, Radha Burnier explores some of the subtle workings of human consciousness and how the practice of meditation relates to its unfoldment. 1981. 51 minutes.
