Re: Theos-World 1900 KH Letter: Some of My Reflections

One of the most useful things I have learned in my study of Theosophy
is that totally contradictory statements can both be true. It's all a
matter of point of view, and in a multi-dimensional universe, that
can be a pretty comlex subject in itself! The image of truth being
like the moon, and our different opinions being like the reflections
of the moon on the water of a lake, broken up into myriad sparkles,
(paraphrase HPB) illustrates it very well. There is only one Truth,
only one moon, but as many fragmentary reflections of it as there are
minds to think, or wavelets to ripple.
