About the Author

Geoffrey Hodoson was born and educated in England, but later lived in New Zealand. A deep student of the Ancient Wisdom he laboured ceaselessly for the spiritual regeneration of mankind until his death in 1983 at the age of 96. Throughout his seventy years of membership, he lectured for the Theosophical Society in most parts of the world.

Mr. Hodson was the author of some forty Theosophical books based on his occult investigations, and was awarded the Subba Row Medal in 1954 for his contribution to Theosophical literature.

Author's Preface

This work is not published as a textbook offering complete expositions of its subject matter. It consists of a collection of ideas which have arisen in the author's mind during attempts to verify certain occult teachings.

As the title suggests, the method of these attempts was that of meditation in which attention was focused upon fundamentals of occult science in an endeavour to translate them into experience. The author dissociates himself from occult claims, particularly from those, which might be inferred from his references to discipleship and Initiation. By meditation and aspiration knowledge may be gained of stages of evolution, which lie in the future. Indeed the aspirant deliberately tries to envisage the path before him, to gain fore-knowledge of the height which later he hopes to ascend.

In the author's case such inner realization, as came to him was not infrequently accompanied by a flow of illuminating ideas. He offers this book for publication in the hope that it may serve as a starting point for similar voyages of discovery by others.
