and includes some very important essays from H.P.B.’s pen.
In addition to that, the student will find in its pages the complete, unaltered and unedited text of H.P.B.’s
Esoteric Instructions.
The continued interest and helpful assistance of our collaborators and friends is gratefully acknowledged.
Special mention should be made of Dara Eklund, Nicholas Curtis Weeks, Shelley von Strunckel and Peter S.
Ryan, who read the proofs in various stages of production. We also appreciate the careful work done by Dara
Eklund in preparing the Index. Our grateful recognition is extended to Grace F. Knoche and Kirby van Mater
for special help and serious interest they exhibited in connection with the text of the Esoteric Instructions.
We also wish to acknowledge the expert technical work performed by Jim Burgener in the reproduction of
the Colored Plates in the Instructions, which add considerably to the value of the Volume as a whole.

Collected Writings VOLUME XII
[ Lucifer , Vol . V, No . 27, November, 1889, pp. 173-178]
The tidal wave of deeper souls
Into our inmost being rolls ,
And lifts us unawares
Out of all meaner cares .
L ONGFELLOW , Santa Filomena .
The great psychic and spiritual change now taking place in the realm of the human
Soul, is quite remarkable. It began towards the very commencement of the now slowly
vanishing last quarter of our century, and will end—so says a mystic prophecy — either for
the weal or the woe of civilized humanity with the present cycle which will close in 1897.
But the great change is not effected in solemn silence, nor is it perceived only by the few.
On the contrary, it asserts itself amid a loud din of busy, boisterous tongues, a clash of
public opinion, in comparison to which the incessant, ever increasing roar even of the
noisiest political agitation seems like the rustling of the young forest foliage, on a warm
spring day.
Verily the Spirit in man, so long hidden out of public sight, so carefully concealed and
so far exiled from the arena of modern learning, has at last awakened. It now asserts itself
and is loudly re-demanding its unrecognized yet ever legitimate rights. It refuses to be any
longer trampled under the brutal foot of Materialism, speculated upon by the Churches,
and made a fathomless source of income by those who have self-constituted themselves its
custodians. The former would deny the Divine Presence any right to existence; the latter
would accentuate and prove it through their Sidesmen and Church Wardens armed with
moneybags and collection boxes. But the Spirit in man—the direct, though now but broken
ray and emanation of the Universal Spirit—has at last awakened. Hitherto, while so often
reviled, persecuted and abased through ignorance, ambition and greed; while so frequently
turned by insane Pride “into a blind wanderer, like unto a buffoon mocked by a host of
buffoons,” in the realm of Delusion, it remained unheard and unheeded. Today, the Spirit
in man has returned like King Lear, from seeming insanity to its senses; and, raising its
voice, it now speaks in those authoritative tones to which the men of old have listened in
reverential silence through incalculable ages, until deafened by the din and roar of
