TS members' power

The message of the TS Rules and Regulations is that power belongs to 
the members and that we transfer it, through the direct election, 
to the President, and, on the other hand, through the election of 
our representatives (General Secretaries) to the General Council 
to determine the policy of the Society, impose it to the 
President and control President's execution of this policy. 

All and each of us has a choice (every day, every hour) to decide if 
we will keep this power or if we will allow that this power is taken 
away from us. 

Keeping power means awareness of our unique task in the realization 
of purpose of existence of the Theosophical Society and taking 
responsibility to perform it. Allowing that power is taken away from 
us means to allow others to decide what is our task and for what 
purpose should we perform it.

But to really know our own task we have to nurture a constant desire 
and intent to inform ourselves. It is just because of the absence of 
this desire and intent that we allowed and are allowing that power is 
taken away from us and then acting as victims blaming women and men 
in the positions of transferred power that they abuse it for their 
own selfish purposes. 

But do we not all act out of our own best intentions? We would hardly 
dare to say that there are some who purposely work to undermine the 
work and role of our Society. So, best intentions are not enough! 
They have to be checked in the light of the above message of the TS 
Rules and Regulations that power belongs to all members.

Therefore, it is up to all and each of us to take our power back and 
creatively design the future of the Theosophical Society.

Just some thoughts!
