Dear Leon,

I appreciate very much the information you offer, that related to 
science itself as well as your own experiences and those of your 
friends and acqaintances. It is a rare privilege to be allowed inside 
the realm of science in such a way. 

Sometimes it seems as if the world, and humanity with it, may be 
trembling on the brink of destruction. We have such power and so 
little control, so little ethical understanding of what we are doing, 
it seems. It sounds puny and trite to say it, in the face of such 
huge issues as now face humanity, but I do believe that each one of 
us has the power within to change everything. If we realize that we 
are a part of all life, that the center of our being is the same as 
the center of all, of the universe and everything in it, then we can 
realize also that every act makes a difference. We have so many 
opportunities every day to make choices in accord with the law of our 
nature, our best ethics, our highest ideals. Our choices, even the 
smallest most insignificant-seeming decision, have the power to be 
the one thing needed to make a difference for all. There are no 
little things. I wonder, can we expect our governments, our military, 
our leaders, to be better than we are? Given the tremendous issues at 
hand, do we have time to procrastinate? Is any one of us so perfect 
that we never behave in a selfish, thoughtless, or greedy manner? It 
seems to me that this is one area where theosophy can be tremendously 
beneficial to the individual, helping him to discover how to become 
part of the solution instead of remaining part of the problem. And 
such an individual can become a positive factor in the human 

In the meatime, I suppose it helps also to practice acceptance. After 
all, if this is the state of our world, it is so because we helped to 
make it so. And if we are doomed by our technological/scientific 
expertise, then maybe this time we will learn the lesson we have been 
trying to teach ourselves for so many eons, that all life is one and 
that everything counts. 

Best wishes,
