Dear Pedro,

After several decades of studying theosophy and trying to apply it to 
my life, I have come to the conclusion that everyone responds to the 
basic teaching, that it resonates with them interiorly. It isn't a 
matter of dogma or creed. It's a matter of simple human values. 
Everyone wants to be respected, cared for, treated courteously. It's 
not easy but it is very simple. All we have to do is treat others as 
we would like to be treated (the centerpiece of all the world's 
religions) sincerely and with perseverence, and everything changes 
for the better. It's all consciousness, after all. We are what we 
think, and our lives are what we make them. Thanks for you comments.
