Theos-World Quote for Wednesday Oct. 25

When I first saw this quote it raised a flag in my mind as something  
worthy to remember. Read it carefully and maybe you will agree with  
me. It brings out the issue of What is God, or What is Sacred. The  
Spirit of Nature, says HPB. I think that this food can bring good  
health and life to anyone. Bon Appétit !


As a body, the Theosophical Society holds that all original thinkers  
and investigators of the hidden side of nature whether materialists-- 
those who find in matter "the promise and potency of all terrestrial  
life," or spiritualists--that is, those who discover in spirit the  
source of all energy and of matter as well, were and are, properly,  
Theosophists. For to be one, one need not necessarily recognize the  
existence of any special God or a deity. One need but worship the  
spirit of living nature, and try to identify oneself with it. To  
revere that Presence, the invisible Cause, which is yet ever  
manifesting itself in its incessant results; the intangible,  
omnipotent, and omnipresent Proteus: indivisible in its Essence, and  
eluding form, yet appearing under all and every form; who is here and  
there, and everywhere and nowhere; is ALL, and NOTHING; ubiquitous  
yet one; the Essence filling, binding, bounding, containing  
everything, contained in all. It will, we think, be seen now, that  
whether classed as Theists, Pantheists or Atheists, such men are near  
kinsmen to the rest. Be what he may, once that a student abandons the  
old and trodden highway of routine, and enters upon the solitary path  
of independent thought--Godward--he is a Theosophist; an original  
thinker, a seeker after the eternal truth with "an inspiration of his  
own" to solve the universal problems.

H. P. Blavatsky
