Unwritten Scriptures Everywhere

The theosophical movement and esotericists in general have underestimated so far the importance of that which Zen masters and students call "the special transmission outside the written scriptures". 
Trevor Legget quoted thus a poem by Sontoku: 
"Without voice or incense, heaven and earth are ever repeating the unwritten scripture". (1) 
Thus, even  stones can preach and the accuracy of concepts is not the only important thing about Theosophy.  
What we do, as we are inspired by the concepts,  is in some cases even more important. 
Best regards,  Carlos.
