I concur. In the final analysis, it is our life and if something helps us
in any way, then it is of value. We tend to confuse the message and
messenger, unless one's interest is just the academic research. Count me
in. There are many like us who are seriously concerned with our lives and
things that can help up to understand.

Good Morning All,
I was just sitting here pondering about the historical names in Theosophy
and came to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter who said what to
who and when. Is not Theosophy about seeking the truth? Are not all truths
universal? And that being the case, it doesn't matter who said what
because nobody owns a "thought" or "a statement" or for that matter
anything. Everything that has ever been said, written etc in the entire
history of everything was always going to be said/ written etc. Everything
that will be said in the future was always going to said. HPB might as

said has been said and we should ponder on this and search for the
validity of what was said, we should not be searching for the validity of
the person who said it. As far as I am concerned an absolute dreg of
humanity could have written SD and it wouldn't matter: it is the message
that is more important.
Now that is not to say that researching historical figures is futile. What
I am saying is that this exercise is more therapeutic and is valid in the
fact that it puts at ease one's own mind, rather than settling anything of
