Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

A description of the experience

……….there are many varied differentiated beings behind physical nature............  popular fairy tales and folk legends have made use of all, in a sense, that is actually in existence……………….

Normal consciousness realises the sense world by means of its perceptions and the world of nature spirits expresses itself from behind these perceptions as what we call the forces of nature.  When science speaks of the forces of nature, we have there nothing that is actually real.  To the occultist the forces of nature are not realities but imprints of the nature spirits working behind the world sense.  Again the imprint of the spirits of the cycles of time is what is usually known to ordinary consciousness as the Laws of Nature
