Hi Anton,

It helps, in considering these vast topics, to get an idea of the 
history of mankind,which is much longer than the story in our history 
books in western culture. Humanity is the material manifestation of 
the hierarchy of the Universal Man. All expression of the Truth of 
Being comes from on source. But time and time again, this Truth 
emanates for the education of humanity, to further the evolution of 
consciousness, and time and time again the beautiful simple Truth, 
the Unity of all Life, the Brotherhood of all living things, the 
inevitability of balance in all existence, the ultimate reality of 
the Laws of Karma, all this is warped and distorted to suit the 
selfishness that abounds in a rather undeveloped humanity. We are 
living products of this ever-repeating cycle. What we call religion 
is in all cases only a partial expression of the eternal Truth that 
is its source. Perfect Truth cannot manifest perfectly in an 
imperfect material universe.

However, the cycle in its endless repetitions never comes back to 
exactly the same point. The spiral revolutions bring humanity ever to 
a new point of progress, however obscure. We have the opportunity in 
this cycle to make some real strides in our conscious evolution. HPB 
spent years writing exhaustively about this subject in "Isis 
Invieled." You might like to dip into that book.
