Paul Brunton and Anthony Damiani
Paul Brunton - I have only read the one book and am very impressed. It's the same wisdom that I get from Nisargadatta and Jean Klein. His amazing "notebooks" are available online By Clicking Here.
Here is a random quote from the notebooks:
| ||"Whoever has attained this blessed state would not be true to himself if he were not ardently happy to share it with others, if he were not ever ready to help them attain it too. And this desire extends universally to all without exception. He excludes none--how could he if the compassion which he feels be the real thing that comes with the realized unity of the Overself, that is, of the Christ-self, and not merely a temporary emotional masquerader! He himself could have written those noble words which Saint Paul wrote more than once in his epistles: "In Him there cannot be Jew or Greek, Barbarian, Scythian, but all are one man in Christ Jesus." Despite this, he soon finds that iron fetters have been placed on his feet. He finds, first, that only the few who are themselves seekers are at all interested; second, that even among this small number there are those who, because of personal dislikes, racial prejudice, social snobbery, or family antagonism, are unwilling to approach him; and third, that the mischievous agencies from occult spheres, through false reports and stimulated malice, delude a part of those who remain into creating an evil mental picture of him which is utterly unlike the actuality. For when such a man really begins to become an effective worker in this sacred cause, the evil forces begin their endeavours to pull him down and thus stop him. They may inspire human instruments with fierce jealousy or personal hatred of him, or they may try other ways. It is their task to destroy the little good that he has done or to prevent whatever good he may yet do. It is an unfortunate but historic fact that many an aspirant is carried away by the false suggestions emanating from such poisoned sources." - World-Mind in Individual Mind, Paul Brunton|
Anthony Damiani - A student of Pauls and very insightful. The man has a very deep wisdom in his writing and an uncommon knowledge of Astrology.Click on the book cover image for the quotes

| ||Notebooks of Paul Brunton: From Birth to Rebirth, Vol. 6|
A book about Reincarnation and Karma. When reading this part I kept asking 'How can he know this?'. Paul seems to have much of the same knowledge delivered by Seth on the same topic. In the section on Karma, Paul has several quotes discouraging Fatalismbut later in thesection he speaks of mans helplessness and the real lack of freedom we possess.
