My husgand and were talking last night about the TS IRC, which we
was on Sunday morning, perhaps when
everyone is sleeping in or going to church(!).  The TS rigagmorole
is really based on a very high and occult intelligence.  In the many
lists and newsgroups I've been on, probably 0.1% are interested in
Theosophy.  Let's face it, most people want to chat and talk about
the last political thing, the weather, their family and their soap
operas, personal and televised.

I realized the intellegencia is going to skewer me and others will
say "humanity (sigh) just has to catch up with us Theosophists).
Balderdash!  If they are dropping like flies now, there won't be
any members by 2025.  They will be a party of 12 sitting in
a coffee shop wondering where it all went.

Is there any way that everyday life with its problems can be
combined with the Divine Wisdom?  Is it possible that the
ivory towers types can walk down to earth and the earthy
types can use all that intelligence to solve their everyday
