May Dallas offer some more quotes drawn from Theosophical texts ?
"Practical occultism is the lowest form of applied
metaphysics...an occultist must not separate himself or anything
else from the rest of creation or "non-creation" ... He must
think of himself as an infinitesimal something, not even as an
individual atom, but as part of the world-atoms as a whole.
Everything from Spirit to the tiniest particle, is a part of the
whole, at lest a link. Break a single link and all passes into
annihilation, but, this is impossible..."
HPB - "Transactions of the Blavatsky Lodge",
"It is not necessary to be conscious of the progress one has
made. We make a good deal of progress in our inner, hidden life,
of which we are not at all conscious. It is best to go on with
one's duty, and to refrain from this trying to take stock and
measuring of progress. All of our progress is in the inner
nature, and not in the physical where lives the brain ... The
apparent physical progress is evanescent. As the Great Adepts
live in [that plane which is also] the plane of our inner nature,
it must follow that they might be actively helping every one of
us --- and we, as physical brain men, not be conscious of it on
this plane." (Answer to a friend by W.Q.Judge,

ARTICLES, Vol. II, p. 505
"Man is a perfected animal, the vehicle of a fully developed
Monad (Atma-Buddhi-Manas) self-conscious and deliberately
following its own line of progress."
HPB -- "Transactions..." p. 14
"...we should imitate the Great Brotherhood in its constant
efforts to help Humanity. New ideas are projected among men and
all good reforms are fostered. They offer to all men the truths
of the Wisdom-Religion, leaving results to the Law [of karma] ...
Our plain duty is to present the truths of Theosophy to all men,
leaving it to them to accept or to reject, and to help all others
to aspire to perfection..." W Q Judge, "Forum Answers", p.
"Only the homogeneous, the absolutely purified unalloyed spirit,
can be reunited to the Deity, or "go to Brahma." HPB --
"Transactions", p. 139
"Every living creature, of whatever description, was, is, or will
become a human being in one or another Manvantara." HPB --
Transactions, p. 23
"Maya is the perceptive faculty of every Ego which considers
itself a Unit, separate from, and independent of, the One
infinite and eternal SAT, or "be-ness" ... Not only we ourselves,
but the whole visible and invisible universe, are only a
temporary part of the one beginningless an endless WHOLE, or that
which ever was, is, and will be." HPB -- Transactions, pp

darkness, when the hour strikes it radiates from itself ONE, the
This number, descending, produces TWO, the second number. and TWO
in its turn, produces THREE, forming a Triangle, the first
complete geometrical figure in the world of form.
It is the ideal or abstract triangle which becomes the POINT in
the Mundane Egg, which, after gestation, and in the third remove,
will start from the Egg to form the (second) Triangle.
This is "Brahma-Vach-Viraj" [ Cause - Word - Will ] in the
Hindu philosophy and "Kether-Chochmah-Binah" in the "Zohar."
The First Manifested Logos if the "Potentia," the 'unrevealed
The Second, is the still latent 'Thought,'
The Third, is the Demiurgos, the active Will, evolving from its
universal Self the active effect, which in turn, becomes the
"Cause" on a still lower plane."
