Have to disagree.  The "mass" which includes you, me, and everyone else here
are searching intensely for Truth, Love, and Compassion.  There are many
unknown and unsung heroes out there who are helping others along the Path
every day.  

The drug addict, the murderer, the stock broker, the salesclerk are all
seeking meaning and spirituality.  They have "interest," but, perhaps,
little guidance and encouragement.

I think we need, as Theosophists, to think more highly of humanity before we
can ever think of aiding "them."

Yes, but we are all on the same journey, and we each can help and contribute
to each other - thereby hastening evolution.

That's not true - we are all "the catalyst."  There is no such thing as only

Perhaps, instead, we should concentrate on the present.
