Allow me to observe in regard to THEOSOPHY, and its presentations old and

The age or century in which it is promulgated has no bearing on the truths
and history it again makes available.  We have to seek, and work to
understand it.  For this reason HPB and the Masters present us with evidence
of the thread of history 0f THEOSOPHY ideas into the remote past.

It is always freely offered to those who have the ability to discern its
BUDDHI-MANASIC content.  It is precisely the underlying and deathless
quality of VIRTUE that gives it the strength and timeless power to retain a
spiritual objective.  All else turns out to be Kama-Manasic argument,
speculation and ends in a cul-de-sac having only selfishness and vice as its

In seeking and thinking and meditating we need to hold in mind the ultimate
purpose of  all LIFE.  The spiritual and universal transcends the personal
and ephemeral.  Our progress is to learn to discern between the two.  Hence
the term / motto:  UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD always will be found to qualify
theosophical basics, fundamentals and principles.

That is how I see it after many years of study.

Best wishes,

Dear Steve and other friends,

Thanks for the several feedbacks to my message on the ultimate 
insignificance of attacking and defending HPB. While most respondents 
appeared able to grasp the idea that I was intuitionally referencing the 
timeless theosophy and not intellectualizing about HPB's 19th century 
"resurgence", most responses still tended toward justifying a 
self-defense of HPB's 19th century theosophy out of "gratitude" or 
"respect", while at the same time maintaining that any attack upon HPB's 
19th century theosophy is untheosophical. No matter that some adhere to 
the axiom that "the best defense is a good offense" and so attack the 
perceived enemies of HPB in a particularly nasty manner.
