Should we worship the Designer? Again, the ancient wisdom
differs from standard religion. The ancient wisdom does not
suggest houses of worship which one visits to worship.
However, appreciation of nature, perhaps in some ways like
the well-known views of Einstein, is natural.
I am repeating an earlier quote so it can be continued in the
context of the issue of worship.
This results in a perpetual series of physical manifestations
and moral effects on Earth, during manvantaric periods, the
whole being subservient to Karma. As that process is not always
perfect; and since, however many proofs it may exhibit of a
guiding intelligence behind the veil, it still shows gaps and
flaws, and even results very often in evident failures -
therefore, neither the collective Host (Demiurgos), nor any
of the working powers individually, are proper subjects for
divine honours or worship.
All are entitled to the grateful reverence of Humanity,
however, and man ought to be ever striving to help the divine
evolution of Ideas, by becoming to the best of his ability a
co-worker with nature in the cyclic task. The ever
unknowable and incognizable Karana alone, the Causeless Cause
of all causes, should have its shrine and altar on the holy
and ever untrodden ground of our heart-invisible, intangible,
unmentioned, save through "the still small voice" of our
Her final words in this quote have been separated out in hopes they
receive more notice:
Those who worship before it, ought to do so in the silence
and the sanctified solitude of their Souls; making their
spirit the sole mediator between them and the Universal
Spirit, their good actions the only priests, and their sinful
intentions the only visible and objective sacrificial
victims to the Presence.
