Re: Theos-World being true to our calling

What you describe is nothing less than evidence of the gradual
evolution of humanity toward consciousness of the unity of all life.
This evolution is occurring whether we choose to recognize it or
participate in it or not. It is for the purpose of increasing this
consciousness that theosophy, in all its forms, comes into usage in
our daily lives. The gentle and natural development of this
consciousness that you describe is an indication of its inherent
place in our natures, something we already know, but must learn to
know that we know. And eventually all will come to some form of
realization of its truth. If I understand what you are saying here,
it is for this that we live in this cycle. If we wanted to find
"proof" that theosophy has had an effect upon the Western world, we
could consider what you describe. These are inner developments, not
dependent upon outer conditions, but flourishing in more individuals
than we could possibly count.
