Dear Adelesie.

I agree. That is the only way that Theosophy can effectively act in the 
world at large... By the individual self devised and self determined efforts of 
each of us to express theosophy in our personal life by practicing altruism and 
brotherhood and accepting our family, social and political responsibilities 
-- as well as directly helping and teaching others to understand the truths of 
karma and reincarnation as laws of nature and the necessity of each such 
awakened individual to help promote the evolution of the race and their own 
ultimate liberation through their own comparable theosophical actions. Thus, the 
accumulative effects of such individual actions could eventually achieve the 
ultimate objectives of the Theosophical Movement. 

However, considering human frailties and the social pressures of the 
different and opposing religious, economic and political systems around us, I wonder 
how easy that will be and how long before terrorism in defense of socially 
conditioned perceived "freedom" can be completely eliminated?
