RE: ULT and the Theosophical Movement [Yours of Sept 15 2003]
>From yours I see you are interested in how things get done in UNITED
LODGE OF THEOSOPHISTS.
Why not become an "associate" and find out "from the inside" if you
Association is free, and it will in no way invade or violate any of your
loyalty to some other Theosophical organization, or inquire into your
desires and motives. The privacy of all associates is respected,
Anyone can join the UNITED LODGE OF THEOSOPHISTS after reading the
DECLARATION and deciding if they are in tune with its objectives. At no
time is anything asked of anyone. All work done is voluntary, and for
the sake of harmony, it is generally done in consultation with others .
There is plenty of opportunity for study and work.

Frankly, I still don't understand. How are the associates
example, there is a ULT building in New York City. I have been told that
there is a separate group that handles the financial aspects, but I
still don't know how those people got the responsibility, how it is
decided what to present, what NOT to present, how the building is used,
what books go into (or are kept out of) the library, etc.
This is not an idle question; I have been asked these questions
others, and, frankly, the impression that an ignorant person can get is
that the ULT follows an "all students are equal, but some are more equal
than others" policy.
