I think you rightly identified a problem plaguing Theosophy/Theosophists. A
clear cut message precisely identifying the mission of theosophy and the
range of "beliefs" theosophists can have is essential if the public
misconceptions are to be set right.

I recently identified this problem at the highest level based on the
published material and have requested the matter be taken up at the next
meeting of the BOD of TSA. I have also copied the info to Adyar. Hopefully
someone will take time to diagnose the problem and try to do something
before we attract selfish members interested in selfish activities.
