1999
THE SOULS IMPERATIVE
Harold Tarn

'The subject of this book is the most fundamental of all Nature's processes. They are all subsidiary to this central theme. The Ancient Wisdom states that the One Life has no attributes but one - Ever-Becoming. However, Life can be regarded as the dynamism in the whole cosmic process. It is immutable and therefore cannot become anything.'

The Blavatsky Lecture [extracted from this paper] was delivered at the Summer School of the Theosophical Society in England, University of Nottingham . Sunday 1st August 1999.
