In considering the present crisis so deeply affecting all of the
world in one way or another, but ourselves who are close,
It might be good to look at some of the principles that theosophy
offers us to understand what has happened and what may happen.
What, for instance may be the rules and laws of Nature that go
into operation ?
Our present day national divisions are arbitrary. Historically
every 30, 60 120, 300, 600 years the political map of the world
gets redrawn. Wars, genocide, atrocities, violence against other
unknown persons seem to arise and their cause or source never
seems to be discovered. Terrorism is not new in the world. One
needs to understand why and how it arises and whether "fear" that
is engendered can be made to resolve itself into understanding
and such precautions as we may take then proceed in an orderly
way. This is not in any way condoning the horrible and terrible
atrocities precipitated on innocents in an incredibly heartless,
senseless and arbitrary manner.
If we take the Theosophical teaching that we are immortal
Spirit/Souls who are in evolution, using many bodies to perfect
our knowledge and wisdom then the present personality in a
particular race, religion or political designation has little
These are external labels, attached to us and others, by reason
of our karmic incarnation and the experiences that our past now
provides for us, in harmony with Nature, to adjust.
But this is not easy to accept, since our whole education has
predisposed us to accept and respect those political and
religious limits in which this present personality is educated to
The Spirit / soul (ATMA-BUDDHI-MANAS) in each of us has the
It is deathless
It has no sex
It has no specific religion other than a deep sense of the
justice, equity and fairness that resides and guides all things,
men and events at their base.
It has a sense of destiny, of karmic fate and knows that every
thought, feeling or deed will cause a corresponding effect,
sooner or later to come back to us
If one reads the sections under KARMA in either the KEY TO
THEOSOPHY (HPB) or the OCEAN OF THEOSOPHY ( Judge ) one will find
the doctrines well explained.
In her article TRANSMIGRATION OF LIFE ATOMS H P B explains how
the Karmic link with the "LITTLE-LIVES" is formed by us when we
choose anything. [ see BLAVATSKY: Collected Works (TPH) Vol.
5, p. 110; "Theosophist," July/Aug,. 1883; U L T H P B
Articles, Vol. II, p. 249 ]. It is an important article and will
assist in linking the evolution of all beings as SPIRITUAL UNITS
that are using PHYSICAL FORMS as their vehicles for developing an

How grateful we are for those "originators" yet Theosophy once
