Thank you for your paper, MK, and I hope there are more like this. I
sometimes don't know why this has to be an individual thing - finding a
messenger. I would hope that the Theosophical Society itself could be this
very revered "messenger." We certainly have the messsage that the world
hasn't really had a chance to look at yet. If the message, as it is found
written about in so many ways, were out there and in every person's hands,
theosophy could certainly carry itself very well as far as revelation is
I think about the course work that I have done in the 'I AM' Temple and how
they view theosophy as having "failed" in the effort to make the "great
ones" known and in presenting this wonderful revelation to every person
alive on earth. But as standards go, I think every failure can be reversed
and we still have a chance to make it a "much talked" about, if not "much
studied" revelation on earth.
This would be my favored definition of "messenger" and "success."
