          I was thrilled to see your comment. The moment Theosophy really
touches someone, it appears that the fundamental proposition of helping
"the orphan Humanity" -- ie. all the human beings with whom we come into
contact and those who are affected by our actions -- biases our actions
towards the general welfare than concentration on activities that
enhances one's wealth etc. In that process there is a very dramatic thing
happens -- one becomes more independent in thinking and also outspoken
and intolerant when one seen injustice to the "little guy/gal". This is
my reading; there may be others who disagree. If so , so be it.
