We would not be involved in Theosophy if we did not have great independence. Dallas, you are right.
If one follows just a set of firm beliefs, they how can we recognize when any aspect of truth shows up in most unexpected way.
We also have the ability to think and seek to understand each other.
Independent thinking is very difficult especially when we bring with us all the various "facts" and beliefs -- many that we are not even aware of. Also an independent thinker, in my opinion, is the most unpredictable person because he/she cannot be expected to react/act in a routine manner.
As to one thing that is quite clear to me: THEOSOPHY is quite different from the work and organization of any T S.
Sure that distinction should always be kept in mind. At the same time, in the back of my mind, I have the lingering feeling that TS has a role to play. If not it would never have been established in the first place.
