I am rather new to theosophy. I thought it was a compound word formed from theos and philosophy. I then read Mrs. Bailey's unfinished biography. From her, I have the impression that theosophy is the study of God to the extent that we can understand, truth being somewhat subjective and personal. She appears to ask the reader to judge truth for himself.
Is Maitreya a teacher? Does it signify a change in how God relates to humanity? As I understand it, Jesus came to teach the reality of the Jewish religion to the Jews, and Christianity was born. The reality was taught to Jew and Gentile alike. God is there for anyone, just as gravity is there for anyone. God has to be chosen, gravity does not. The reality of God must exist for Muslim, Buddhist, Christian, Jew, ... etc.
Is this true for Theosophy? Is this the meaning of Brotherhood?
Catch you around,
