As usual you present here much to ponder. The problem with
seeing theosophy as a divine dispensation is that our worldview will
stagnate with theosophy *as we currently understand it.* Sooner or later
we will have an experience called a Significant Emotion Event which
cannot be ignored or forgotten that will not "fit" into our current
This will result in either death failure to assimiliate or a change in our
worldview. Thus those of us with relatively flexible minds will grow while
those of us who are more rigid will stagnate and have to grow at a later time.

But the bottom line is that truth cannot be put into words and you can't put
it into a box with a pretty ribbon around it -- for very long. This is true for
theosophy and anything else.
