Hi Eddy,

Your comments are very wise. What use indeed to memorize literature 
if we don't attempt to put its lessons to work in our daily lives? As 
far as I am able to determine, that is the very point of theosophy, 
and of all the world's great teachings. After all, these teachings 
come from the Masters, who have done exactly that, gained control 
over all nature's finer forces. And how did they do that? By living 
the Golden Rule strictly, by gaining control of their lower natures 
absolutely, by practicing altruism with perfect devotion. We have a 
long way to go to attain such accomplishment, but there is no time 
like the present to begin. And more may depend upon our making a 
beginning, and continuing to the best of our ability, than we could 
possibly imagine.

All the best,
