Well said. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in eating. Personally speaking, my exposure to theosophy has definitely helped me to become a better person and I am sure has affected many with whom I deal with. It has made me think, not constrained by traditional beliefs and traditional stereotypes and prevented me from not falling prey to the various priest-ridden religions and religious groups and as well as the many cults which prey upon unsuspecting population. The very fact that the theosophical ideas have survived over a century point to its inherent strength. It may not have mass appeal because it is based on personal responsibility and no easy escape out of the consequences of our actions.

If, on the other hand, as I believe, theosophy is a potent and vital
force in all our lives, whether we know it or not, but is not
apparently very much in evidence on the material plane, that may be
because it is not limited to that plane of manifestation, but extends
to realms beyond our imagining, and every where in between. If we
think that the theosophical movement of the past century or so is all
there is of theosophy, perhaps we are not noticing its eternal
nature. And if we attempt to judge the significance in our lives of
the eternal and ancient wisdom brought into a doubting world by the
work of HPB, Judge, and others, who sought no personal glory, but
simply and selflessly did the work that was given them to do, by our
current standards of material power and greed, we will fail to come
to any understanding of the true power and significance of that
movement for this era and far into the future.
