Dallas, I think you are preaching to the choir on this point, and I
appreciate your idealism. However, as one who has worked with three
different Theosophical Organizations over the last forty years, I have
observed that there is a great deal of difference between the ideals they
preach and their practices.
To my mind, personal responsibility is the key here, as you
suggest. This is why I'm interested in learning about different
Theosophist's views concerning what they believe their responsibilities
are. Im frankly not interested in being told what "theosophy
teaches." I have all of the books, and like you, have read them over
and over and discussed them alone and in study groups for years. I'm
primarily interested is in the many different ways that people have come
to understand these teachings and how they apply them.
Ramadoss recently quoted Radha as saying that "we have as a TS such a low
level because we have not better members." In light of your point about
personal responsibilities and individual karma, she is right.
It was someone else who made the quote.
