Theosophy: Theos = Deity; sophia = wisdom -- hence divine wisdom
-- the record down the ages of discovery by delving into the
motivational side of Nature in all its departments.
Theosophy is that ocean of knowledge which spreads from shore to
shore of the evolution of sentient beings; unfathomable in its
deepest parts, it gives the greatest minds their fullest scope, yet,
shallow enough at its shores it will not overwhelm the understanding
of a child.
[ See SECRET DOCTRINE Vol. I, pp 272-3, also OCEAN OF THEOSOPHY ]
Knowledge and information about all departments and laws of Nature
which by its inherent nature draws all beings together into a Unit.
The separation of individual consciousness and intelligence is only
apparent, as in fact the laws of cooperative existence and
interaction on the planes of sympathy, Electro-magnetism united each
individual atom or person to every other. Nature is the 'church;'
all beings of whatever degree are the 'paritioners.'
Theosophia: Wisdom-religion, "Divine wisdom." The substratum and
basis of all the world religions and philosophies, taught and
practiced by a few elect ever since man became a thinking being. In
its practice Theosophy is purely divine ethics.
I hope this will help Dallas
