I guess I needed that bit of reassurance. The idea about the
interaction of ourselves and Nature all around us, through the
"life-atoms" or the "Skandhas/elementals" was an explanation that
both HPB and Mr. Judge offered.
It always seemed to me that the relationship between us and
nature and between our astro-physical makeup and our volition
needed that kind of linkage to make it reasonable.
There are so many other "gems" to be found in theosophical
writings from the "origins." We owe Them a great deal.
Best wishes, Dallas
