A few years ago on another mailing list, we were discussing
different ways to rework the objects of the Theosophical
Society. I came up with one that seemed interesting at the
time. I'm including it below. Perhaps we need periodically
to review how we think of things, to put them in fresh
words, so that their inner live stays strong for us?
1. Universal Compassion: To form a living example of the open
acceptance and love of others, setting aside all prejudice
and discrimination based upon such factors as sex, religious
preference, race, economic status, and politics.
2. Cultural Heritage: To encourage the search for Truth wherever
it may be found, including a study of great philosophies,
religions, and fields of science as well as disciplines of the
heart including music and art. To not just study and be a
consumer of this heritage, but to individually explore the
unknown and then make new, positive contributions to the world.
3. Personal Quest: To explore one's unrealized potential and
abilities with the end-goal of becoming a positive force for
wisdom, truth, and beauty in the world. To awaken an inner
fire so that one can then light the fires in the hearts of
others, seeking to make the world a brighter place.
