(LEVEL 3) The Philosophy of Applied Metaphysics
Anagoge is the interpretation of a text (such as
scripture) that finds beyond the literal, allegorical and moral senses, a fourth and ultimate spiritual or
mystical sense. This Anagogical study parallels, among others, the ancient Sumerian cuneiform text, the
Hebrew tradition, ancient Sanskrit texts, as well as the Chinese tradition. It is a look at the Biblical
texts in relation to these traditions and includes references to modern technology in relation to ancient

questions. It also includes all of the multiple choice questions for the texts in this
2) The Mysteries Revealed
Though many consider the Book of Revelation simply to be
a book of riddles, there are some who teach a religion of fear based upon it. The Mysteries
Revealed is a metaphysical interpretation of the Apocalypse of
John – the revelation of Jesus.
The book of Revelation is a roadmap
to Self-unfoldment. It is the mysteries revealed.
3) The Core Teachings by
The thirteen Universal Laws,
as taught by the Great Masters, are identified in this book. The emphasis is on how their teachings were alike as opposed to how they were
different. Readers and students can see for themselves how the original teachings parallel each
other. In the
process, what has been added can be identified. To some degree there is an
introduction to the Universal Laws in virtually all of the Renford Books, but in The Universal Laws there is a more in depth study of the Laws.
4) The Father Confusors
This is a study of ancient scripture and the parallels
that can be seen in related stories.
It is the second phase of the study program and builds on the lessons learned
from The Universal
the Universal Laws are understood, at least on a basic level, The Father
Confusors helps differentiate between Universal Being, God, and
entities that were thought to be God or posed as God. The First Cause, The Creative Force we call Universal Being, is identified through the Divine
Self-expression, the Universal Laws.
5) The Metaphysical Bible
Some of the sections of this book can be found in
various Renford writings, but here, they are all together and in an easily understandable
order. Popular and familiar passages such as Isaiah 55, the Lord’s Prayer, the
23rd Psalm and
others are revealed in a different light. With all due respect to theologians and philosophers, the deeper
and clearer picture of what was being said is recorded for your study.
6) What Now?
This book is a series of essays by Renford on a variety
of subjects of contemporary interest.
Although the subject matter is of present day concern, the power and harmony
that can be gained by understanding of the ancient teaching of Universal Laws are brought into
book shows us why things have developed as we have come to accept them. With understanding of the
Laws we can see what is missing.
7) The Seven Rays by Ernest Wood
Seven Rays was written by Earnest Wood and published as a Quest Book by The
Theosophical Publishing House in 1925. The basic concept of this course is that all things and beings in the world, all forms of
mind and matter, arose from combinations of seven fundamental impulses. It follows that in each individual we will find one or more of
these rays predominant. The student will be able to connect this knowledge clearly with relation to the fields of
knowledge and the Universal Laws.
