Dear Friends,

There seems to be a lot of anger against the United States of America these days.

In order get a broad perspective of things, we can remember a few facts which reveal the link between the theosophical movement and human evolution, since 1875.

1) Coincidence or not, the end of the World War II in Europe and the victory of democratic countries is celebrated in the same day when the founder of the theosophical movement closed her incarnation. H. P. Blavatsky, who lived for Universal Brotherhood, left her physical body in 8th of May 1891, and the War ended 8th of May, 1945.

2) Harry Truman, the 33rd president of the USA who lead the final moments in the Second World War, was born precisely in May 8th, 1884.

3) It is also interesting that the Theosophical Society was founded in 1875 in the city of New York, exactly seventy years before the creation of the United Nations in 1945. And, of course, the U.N. Headquarters is established in the very same city.

4) The U.N. Chart starts with a vigorous proclamation of the first objet of the theosophical moovement -- that of Universal Brotherhood. Far from perfection as they are, the theosophical movement is an inner seed of universal brotherhood, just as the U.N. is its outer seed. They may need a few thousands of years to flourish in a beautiful way.

5) Yet even the creation of the thesophical movement in 1875 was not a process entirely new. The USA, as a motherland, did inspire the structure of the Theosophical Society, and H.P.B. wrote:

“Born in the United States, the Society was constituted in the model of its Motherland. The latter, omitting from its Constitution the name of God lest it should afford a pretext one day to make a state religion, gives absolute equality to all religions in its laws. All support and each is in turn protected by the State. The Society, modelled upont this Constitution, may fairly be termed ‘A Republic of Conscience’.”

So if the present policies of the U.S. government are wrong and unfair in many an aspect, it may be wise to give it a few more centuries before we get too angry or too frustrated.

Meanwhile, we can take care of our own, somewhat still precarious “Republic of Conscience” , the theosophical movement. Are we doing our homework in the best way we can? Or do we still have kings, popes and candidates to kings and popes in the movement?

Best regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline
