The rise of an important
spiritual teacher who has God Realization and the added reliable yogic siddhis (supernormal powers of
perception and healing abilities) such as Mr. Hodson, is always to some extent to be shrouded in mystery. There are
several reasons for this, not least of which is the need to minimize envy and negative activity from others who may
feel displaced and wish to interfere with his/her ministry. We don’t need to look any further regarding this
weakness in human behaviour than in the fate of the Lord Jesus Christ, whose actual death was engineered by the
power elites of his day, notwithstanding that he was deeply loved by the ordinary people. Mr. Hodson’s spiritual
gifts were so absolutely remarkable, that even his own brother was immensely jealous of them (told to me by Sandra
Hodson). Although Mr. Hodson was aware of these forces that surrounded him and had the capacity to defend himself,
he chose not to exercise it. This was because an advanced initiate is not permitted to make personal defence, he
has to bear the full karmic impact as part of his rapid growth to perfection. Therefore, whilst often defending
others during his life, Mr. Hodson refused to respond to negative impacts on himself. He also made no exaggerated
claims, choosing instead to let his good deeds speak for him in an impersonal way.
as good fortune would have it, the publication of Mr. Hodson’s Occult Diary after his death, has
helped us to piece together a partial picture of his spiritual rise, as well as explaining his remarkable inner
capacities (although not the details of his actual awakening process which must ever remain secret because of the
dangers involved). Although significant entries have been edited out, sufficient remains to make us realize who
this humble, dignified, gentleman was and how he was regarded by his teachers. No clearer statement
is available on this matter than the one provided by his adept guru, The Master Polidorus Isurenus, whose
image appears here:
"6 December 1944,
"Your whole life in
this incarnation was mapped out for you from the beginning, and you, as an Ego, accepted the plan. You had earned a
healthy body in your life to stand the strain of disaster and later occultism. Your boyhood was watched over and
you were saved from death more than once, as when you swallowed a penny and when your pony galloped away. Your
entry upon the Path was the sole consideration with you and you were ready to work and suffer, as indeed you have
done. But your reward is sure and draweth nigh. Together with your old friend, you are going to take up the occult
life in real earnest before very long. The shackles are falling away already, and you have made your own road by
your exertions. Soon you will be free to follow wholly your own chosen path of Light and of the
You began that path eight thousand years ago in Ancient Egypt and have followed it ever since. You found the Light
and the doctrine of the Light in both male and female incarnations in Ancient Egypt and later on in Greece. Your
path led through Palestine at the time of Christ. Then Alexandria and the Gnostics received you. Steadily you
advanced in occult science but with brief interludes of worldliness, most of them unfortunate ... However, the
excursion was not all loss, as it brought knowledge and experience and set your will for this incarnation towards
the occult life. You belong to the Temple and the Sanctuary and that is why you responded as you did to Theosophy
when it first came into your life, as it was bound to do. For you had served the Light too well for it to desert
you for very long.
Your siddhi of
intercommunication, through transference, or faculty of receiving, in full consciousness, soon came out, and your
Archangel Teacher [Bethelda] developed it by use. Now it is operating again and will develop further as your life
becomes more established. You are a messenger above all things, a bringer of the Light to man. The next twenty
years of your life will bring you to great spiritual and occult heights and largely because of your capacity to
receive direct the Light which the Great Ones propose still further to give. This link now formed between us will
endure to the end, for I have been deputed as Their messenger when They do not wish to speak direct. No longer need
you feel alone. You have drawn near to the heart of the work and are now received back into the Sanctuary; exile is
done. You are back Home. I am the Elder Brother Who receives the prodigal home, an old Friend Who worked and taught
with you in your Egyptian and Alexandrian days. So now assume self-confidence and speak your word, if with outer
diffidence as is your wont, yet with inward calm. To restore your confidence and to reassure your heart I give
these words to you... "
Light of The Sanctuary (The Occult
Diary of Geoffrey Hodson) compiled by Sandra Hodson, 1988
This advice was
given to Mr. Hodson in 1944 in his 58th year and as the Master indicated, even greater light and insight were in
store for him. In fact, some of his finest occult research work and achievements were made in this later and
vitally mature part of his life, examples being his work on Biblical allegory and symbolism, Mythology, Music
forms, researches into the various orders of Angels (Devas) especially in South Africa and New Zealand, and
palaeontology research assisting Professor John Robinson D.Sc.
Mr. Hodson was actually a pupil of the
senior Master of the Wisdom known as the Chohan (Lord) Morya, but the majority of his training was
delegated to the Master Polidorus Isurenus (shown above) who was mostly Mr. Hodson’s day to day working guru and an
old teacher from the past. In certain of Mr. Hodson's books we find the following acknowledgement of the Master
Polidorus' inspiration in this form:
work is dedicated to Philo Judaeus the Alexandrian Sage".
Diary reveals that at various times
he had actually been the recipient of contact and advice from many Chohans including Morya (M.), Kuthumi
(K.H.), the Prince Rakoczy (R.) (who is sometimes also referred to as the Comte de St. Germain), Jesus (J.)
as well as others not known by name to the world, and some intriguingly referred to just as "An Adept". Some
of these are shown in the illustrations above along with Mdme. H.P. Blavatsky, who acting as the agent of the
Masters M. & K.H., was the central source of inspired revelation in founding The Theosophical Society in
1875. These members of the Inner Spiritual Government of the World speaking from their various sanctuaries in
Tibet, Egypt, Transylvania, Shamballah (Gobi Desert - China) and Yucatan (Mexico), comprise the highest
spiritual teachings available on earth. Moreover, in the wise way the information was released to the world
by publication five years after his death, Mr. Hodson is completely freed of any accusation of seeking kudos
or personal gain. One is consequently left with the feeling that these revelations are totally genuine. In
this and similar ways we can see how Mr. Hodson was really the vehicle of a great push towards revealing
spiritual truth in his time, stemming directly from the spiritual hierarchy of our planet. The following
extracts amalgamated from several references in The Occult Diary and emanating
from The Masters Morya and Kuthumi indicate the progressive developments.
Kuthumi emerged from another room, now glowing with golden light. I received the impression of a dedicated altar
within it. He walked up to me and handed me a long used pencil of white wood. On it were several signatures,
including His own as in the Letters – “K.H.”… I did not feel it was given, only shown to me and to be held…” “The
Pencil was your work in the world as accredited agent for Us…” “ you [Geoffrey] fulfill the Office suggested by the
“gift of the Pencil” and the indication on the “Roll” of the continuance of the Office held and work done by H.P.
Blavatsky, Our former representative, and of whom you are already a successor”…“Now”, perhaps, you may understand
more fully the true meaning of the proffered Pencil.” “Geoffrey realized that the Master referred not only to his
reception of many published books and articles, but to his somewhat newly appointed position as “Pronouncer” or the
Masters’ Agent to inform aspirants of Steps upon the Path of Initiation."
Thus, Mr. Hodson rapidly expanded his consciousness through the advanced practice of Yoga and training in the
Mysteries, as well as in dedicated service to The Inner Government of the World – Earth’s Spiritual Hierarchy.
Although he would never have claimed it for himself, the evidence amassed by Sandra through the publication of
The Occult Diary in the above quotations, rather
suggests that he was regarded by the Spiritual Hierarchy as the pre-eminent Theosophical Teacher of his generation.
This is very important to grasp, because the methods that he recommended and the advice he gave during his lifetime
were thus more likely to be wholesome and designed to help prevent people from running themselves into trouble.
This would not necessarily apply to other more experimental systems of occult philosophy or yogic
The magnitude and intensity of communications from The Inner Government of the world are arresting to say the
least, and anybody with aspiration to Discipleship and Initiation would benefit greatly from reading The Trilogy (The Occult Diary in
particular). Suggested spiritual stepping stones that Mr. Hodson himself used are mentioned in the next section
entitled, Disciplines of the Spiritual Life.
