Irina Tweedie: Daughter of Fire

Her mind is wrestling with visions of creatures and demons:. Born in in Russia, she was educated in Vienna and Paris.

I find this path is dahghter difficult for men, especially for the Western man because of the education, you know, the competition: The Daughter of Fire: Her mind is wrestling with visions of creatures and demons: Lists with This Book.

So many nuggets of wisdom, two of my favorites: For those interested in the Perrenial Wisdom, in the ways other spiritual traditions seek God, this book is tweedje wonderful! Above extract is from Women of Wisdom: The cup of tea tasted bitter. The body daighter so light at times. Her day-to-day account of experiences with her teacher along her spiritual journey is inspiring and deeply moving. And this is clear from the very beginning: The sunrise, the sunset, the garden, the people, the whole daily life seems outwardly the same.

Nov 10, Suzy rated it it was amazing. As if this special peace always orina and always would be, forever…. In the darkness she can find no peace.

He himself was full of peace.

My Master told me that my troubles are passing away. And unlike men, the Teacher continues, tweediw are already well attuned to this mystical relationship:. Be always a friend of the Almighty and you will never die.


A friend lent me this book the past week. It is not done in one day. Through the ensuing days o months, Irina is tossed upon the tidal waves of ecstasy and pain; for every drop of understanding, there is a backwash of unmitigated ignorance. Continuing to Bhai Sahib her reasons for coming, she tells him of the theosophical belief that not even a guru is necessary for liberation, salvation being achievable through our own independent efforts:.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.
