You've found Esoteric Talks!

An esoteric system is a way of guiding man to a right relationship to himself, others, and the Infinite Universe, of which he is a part. After we've accurately located ourselves in the big scheme of things we are ready to move forward to what we came here to do. You were created to develop beyond what life offers you.

Morning Talks

These recordings are in depth studies of esoteric literature that we examine in our Saturday morning gatherings. Some of the books we explore are better known while others are obscure. All are rich with meaning giving us an opportunity to challenge ourselves to think in a new way. The force of understanding is created through flexibility.

Phat Talks

The Phat Talks are about learning to apply the universal truth of esotericism to ourselves, where we find ourselves in the Universe. Applied anything is more difficult than theoretical anything. Our quick fix, instant access society doesn't well support these efforts. All the more reason for this spaced repetition of Universal Principles.

Evening Talks

These Podcasts examine classic esoteric works from a fresh perspective. New impressions can lead us to metanoia, a measured change in thinking. Real change of mind inevitably leads to an expansion of consciousness. It is only increased consciousness that can carry us to new levels of Being.

Lite Talks

Some questions listeners and students ask are made into Lite Podcasts. These are pithy Talks addressing the nuts and bolts reality of applying these ideas. Esoteric principles are easy to study and discuss, but it's their application that attracts transforming influences from outside our system.

About Esoteric Talks

"No good deed goes unpunished."

The person most frequently credited as the originator of the phrase is playwright Clare Boothe Luce. Also credited have been playwright Noel Coward, writer Oscar Wilde, journalist Walter Winchell and the late Washington Post writer Bill Gold. The original idea is probably an ancient proverb.

Appearing cynical on the surface, a closer examination of human nature reveals the False Personality to be incredibly vengeful and petty due to its hubris.

Plato has Socrates say, "An unexamined life is not worth living." The reason no good deed goes unpunished is because most people are living lives not worth living. If you feel a sting, that probably means you are spending more time and energy examining the lives of others than you are examining your own.
