I like your statement. We can go on discussing all the finer
points and some like me is interested in practical application of
Theosophy in dealing with the situations we run into where we may be able
to help our fellow human beings. May be it is a minority who think this way.

It may be time to reevaluate how Theosophy can help our fellow humans
in todays world. There is no need to give up.
PS: My work is in the nature of personal service in the area of
consulting. Theosophy has helped me very frequently when I help
individuals. More later.
