I think it signifies that the modern Theosophical Society has warped and
twisted any genuinely "ancient wisdom" into a cultish, power-seeking
minority of "holier-than-thou" people. (Though of course there are some
who are not like this). Sadly, your experience and mind has been echoed
back to me by other EX-TS members. I shall be letting my own membership
lapse when subscriptions are due again next year.
