Is this not illustrative of the way in which the mind progresses
?  We are all centered on some ultimate goal, however well or
poorly we may define it to ourselves.

A forum such as this "Theos-talk" enables us to compare our
thinking with others, constructively.  We seek to refine, to
sharpen to improve -- how else can we do it but by questions,
opinions, answers, and assistance ?  Is not the basis for Theos -
sophia that wisdom-freedom which can only be expressed by
brotherhood ?

It is interesting to me, a rather devoted Blavatsky/Judge
student, to encounter many "post-Balvatskian ideas and thoughts.
It is not that I am unfamiliar with them, as the whole range of
the theosophical movement is open through the magazines and books
that have been published.

What can be overwhelming is the quantity.  Then, how does one
develop selectivity ?  Now that is individual entirely.  And we
have to determine for ourselves what is sequential and
logical, -- coherent as a whole philosophy, and not just isolated
snippets of information.

I hope these few ideas may be of some help.
