which stuck in my mind for decades. I found it in the URL. Here is
>"These were your words to me and others last year; but if you will
reflect for one moment what it is to transform a worldly man, such as
was in 1874 --- a man of clubs, drinking parties, mistresses, a man
absorbed in all sorts of worldly public and private undertakings and
into that purest, wisest, noblest and most spiritual of human beings
--- a BROTHER, you will cease to wonder, or rather you will wonder,
could ever have struggled out of the swamp at all, and how I could
succeeded in gaining the firm straight road."
>When one reads this, and also keeps in mind the personality of HPB,
was an unconventional cigarette smoking, meat eater, the choice of
individuals chosen by the Founders to launch modern theosophical
shows that the two were selected as they were best suited for the
task on hand and not selected by traditional external worldly
most of us are used to judge people.
>It looks to me that we need a lot more of fired up theosophical
enthusiasts who are doers and can actively and aggressively further
the objects of
theosophy, not those who lead a saintly life and try to demonstrate
to the world at large and talk and parrot the existing writings in
to a captive audience.
