<< I think the E.S. was a last-ditch attempt at true unity and
 brotherhood, which the "outer" T.S. so sorely lacked. >>

And still does, I would add. So which is it, that that may not be a natural
part of the human condition yet? True esoteric awareness or Human unity?

<<By their seven-fold pledge, the
E.S. members committed themselves to being vessels of brotherhood and working
centers of unity.  They were meant to be models for the non-esoteric students
to follow.>>

It could have been a seven times seven-fold pledge and still would have meant
nothing. Unless and until, enough of each members personality-identity, has
been transformed into its essential spiritual nature, no amount of lip service
works. The interesting point to ponder for me is, HPB knew this, Judge Knew
this and I think Besant knew this. So what IS the value of pledge making and
taking by personalities that do not have the Spiritual force yet developed, to
actualize them?

<< Failing a real unified
center, Masters had and have no choice but to work through individuals, as
they did through HPB.>> 

So, here we are some hundred odd years later, and we are discussing topics
like, why are the TS's falling apart, single nominee presidential elections,
etc. I ask again, is it the work of HPB and the Masters that did not produce
the hoped for results? Or, is it perhaps, that Human Unity is not an
attainable goal on the Physical plane?
