Past, present and future form a continuum, as Occultism teaches us.

Last week-end I delivered a seminar on Deep Ecology and Sustainable Development in the Building of the Next Civilization, in Belo Horizonte, a State Capital one hour by plane from Brasília. In my several books already published, I have discussed  pretty much the future, as well as the present of our civilization.   Yet we do need to understand the past in order not to repeat the same old mistakes. I usually discuss central elements in the acumulated experience of the last 2,500 years. 

Speaking of the interaction between past and present: the WWII, for instance, has more than one aspect to be understood yet. Look at the Gaza Strip, at Lebanon, and at Israel, right now, July 18.  Present moment challenges involving Neo-Nazism, Terrorism and War  has a lot to do with Theosophy as Theosophy is about compassion and planetary citizenship, and it is a decisive factor to open a way out of these obstacles. 

Having at least respect for the Messengers helps the connection between Mankind and the sacred sources of inspiration.  Slandering them does the opposite.
