Re: A Good Response Needed

I answer with some trepidation that my reponse is not a "good"
one, but my opinion is that belief in the Masters is not
considered a prerequisite of membership. That many would find
the existence of an advanced group secretly engaged in
influencing and directing people and events for the purpose of
awakening humanity to its unrecognized (and for the most part
latent) potential a concept which they could ascribe to does
not surprise me.
It is surprising to me that after even a cursory exploration of
the concepts of theosophy members would still find such a
notion improbable. The theosophy I have explored tells of an
ordered universe full of purpose and meaning for each
individual no matter how insignifcant one may feel in its
vastness. One ruled by laws and justice with compassion.
That there may be those far in advance of others willing to
teach, provide direction and even protection within clearly
defined laws of nature--which anyone can learn, does not seem
proposterous to me.
So many of us wander through life with no clue to our purpose
of existence becoming jaded and cynical that life has anything
to offer us but pain and suffering for no purpose!
While members of the various groups may not agree on details,
the broad outline of a scheme of evolution with the potential
to improve each and every one of us guided and directed by our
Elder Brothers seems far to noble an ideal to cast aside
ligthly. Even one that might inspire some to commit themselves
to working for it in some small way. Organization such as
these are worth belonging to, supporting, and working in!
