In a letter from one of the Masters, they plead that we pay more attention
to the ideas they are presenting and less to their poor selves. The world
view found in the writings of the founders of the modern theosophical
movement must, and I think do, stand on their on merit. It is a
philosophy of life that opens the door to a lifetime...some would say
lifetimes...of discovery which enlightens and enobles those who
invest themselves in this grand adventure "TO KNOW, TO DARE, TO WILL,
and to remain silent," which is said to be a motto of its students.
