Hello Pablo,

Yes, there was a member of the Adyar TS who is given the credit for the quip: "Theosophy is everything, but everything is not Theosophy." The first time I heard this was when I visited the Quest book shop in Ojai, looked through the Theosophy section and noted that HPB's Secret Doctrine was not to be found. I asked the store keeper if they had the book for sale. She replied, "Oh yes, the SD is over in the Kaballah section." I asked why it was not in the Theosophy section. She explained that the SD was really a work on Kaballah. I countered that the SD also has a lot on Hinduism, Buddhism etc. and that considering who wrote the book, Theosophy might be a more appropriate section for the book. She then explained that "Theosophy is everything, but everything is not Theosophy." I often think of that exchange and wonder whether she was trying to shut me up with a non-answer, or offering a koan for me to solve, or....

Hello Jerry!

I agree completely with your message. All of us must be very beware about this topic. I think that a religious-like attitude cans death the theosophical spirit of enquiring& And we know that mind has this strong tendency, dont you?

Some people don't know Theosophy and say, "all is Theosophy". This is not correct too, from my point of view. However, theosophical investigation is not a dogmatic one, and all very deep investigation must be start from the doubt.

Best wishes
