No, we do not all try to practice obedience.  Some of us reject  obedience 
out of hand.
And you will not find much humility on this list, of that I can assure  you.  
Theosophists do few things better than to disagree with each  other.

Hi Gineata,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Theosophy, which, if  you have found 
it in this cycle, is probably something you have  experienced before, 
perhaps under another name. Central to the philosophy  of Theosophy 
are the principles of karma and reincarnation, which,  basically 
indicate that we are responsible for our actions, and we live  many 
lives upon the earth, as do all other life forms. If you are drawn to  
the study, it will definitely be rewarding to you. Try to keep an 
open  mind, and remember, we are only human. We all try to practice 
humility,  obedience, compassion, forgiveness, and unconditional love, 
but it is an  uphill battle. A worthwhile one, however. Many students 
have tales such as  yours to tell of their introduction to the study 
of occultism. We are  approaching the gates to the inner mystery of 
life, and the invitation to  enter can take many strange and wonderful 

All the  best,
