Thanks Bill.

Indeed, there seems to be quite a few students of Theosophy who sense this disconnect. While HPB constantly wrote about living and applying Theosophy, I have, over the years, heard a constantly repeated question: "Where is the application?" I'm quite certain that HPB never intended her writings to become canonized in what are functionally "Theosophical Churches" where people endlessly read and re-read her writings. She began an extraordinary discourse which, I believe, she intended to be carried on. Instead of doing so, students sat around for the next hundred years waiting for the next teacher to arrive.

Dear Jerry,

Excellent presentation! Please do continue.

You say, "Theosophical notions
must be tied into normal reality and have a function there."

Bravo! I might add that theosophical notions should arise from normal
functional reality as well. Theosophy has no particular value as an authoritative explanation of abstract concepts. However, it is valuable as guidance aimed at awakening our self-determined peace beyond understanding regarding the universal problems and unanswered questions that our shared human condition evoke within us.
