Morten and the misleading notion, "Theosophy is KING."

Avoid the Theosophists:
Scholars never have followed Theosophists, though they have frequently equaled
or excelled Theosophists in divine wisdom.
Scholars can do this because they do not regard Theosophy as an end but
as something useful: with the advantages and limitations corresponding to this function.
Theosophists, quite often, do not show signs of understanding that there is anything beyond
theosophy, and therefore they are incapacitated -- while they remain at this stage -- from
being able to have a higher objective. One must always have an aspiration higher
than one's actual status in order to rise, even in an existing field.

Such Theosophists, because they cannot move beyond their conception of theosophy, are
driven to believe and to practice two things:
1. They tend to make themselves believe that theosophy is of. the highest nature among things and that Theosophists are a high, even special, product with some kind of property-interest in truth or even a peculiar, perhaps unique, capacity to perceive it. The historical records of Theosophists in this respect, not to mention their individual experiences in being refuted by events, do not daunt them.
2. Because they know inwardly that this posture of theirs is not true, those of them in the appropriate field are compelled to resort to the study of the work, of their opponents (the Scholars ). This is why Theosophists study the works of Scholars, but Scholars do not have to study the works of Theosophists, as one Scholar has cogently remarked.

So it is certainly NOT important to the scholarly Seeker after Truth to adopt such ideas like "Theosophy is KING"!
I do hope the readers can agree upon this.
