Warwickâs Recent Comments

In a recent msg to TS members, Warwick wrote:

âI have been asked where am I heading? The answer to that question is
simple. First, it is not I â it is We. We are working to create a more
vibrant, creative, interactive and forward looking Theosophical Society
geared to meet the needs of twenty-first century people, and twenty-first
century aspirants in particular. HPB said many times that the role of the
Society was singular â to promulgate the Wisdom teachings World Wide. How we
do that is the question.
-
We need to present what we have to teach with heart and head in balance. The
heart is not wishy washy, fluffy New Age so-called heart, it is the true
compassionate understanding of the initiate and the chela â the heart of
true Christ Consciousness â tough, strong, enduring.â

We have not seen him here for quite some time. I am sure he is lurking and
reading the messages. While we should congratulate him for posting a couple
of messages, at least he is only the second National Secretary to venture
into participating here at a time all others have never been seen.
-
We have not seen any mention of the transparency issue in Warwickâs msg.
Lack of transparency is one of the key factors which led to many of the
problems starting with the election and subsequent end-run ultra secret
attempt to disenfranchise all members and seize the power to appoint the
president, thus make the president a puppet of a handful of GC members. At
least Warwick was not one of the signatories of the disenfranchisement
attempt.
-
For whatever reason, still GC members do not get it as far as the
transparency issue is concerned. Obviously it is more difficult and
complicated to carryout any machinations in the open than in an opaque
environment. It is for this specific reason, at least in the USA, all
publicly elected bodies have to have their meetings and discussions and
decisions in the open, under penalty of criminal prosecution. TS can learn
something from the systems in this country.
-
Here I also wish to recall Besantâs statement in her last public lecture
that the most effective way to spread theosophy is to live theosophy in our
daily lives. I think it is applicable in 21st, 22nd and all future
centuries.
-
Any amount of lecturing is simply talk and when any one sees what has been
going on in the TS since the start of elections last year, they may come to
the conclusion that there are a lot of hypocrites in TS like in all
organizations. It is very easy to live theosophy in a transparent
environment since there is no secret to be hidden.
-
Let us see if the GC members really believe in transparency after operating
in an opaque environment for a very long time. Continued lack of
transparency requires all of us to be vigilant and alert since we do not
know what is cooking behind the scenes and GC members misguided by the
delusion that they are doing good to TS and theosophy may do things which in
reality will harm TS and theosophy.
