Dear MKR

Very interesting...
A few views...

In the below we have:
"....."Living Theosophy" is what HPB indicated to the members, among others, as
to how they could help the Society (Key to Theosophy). "

M. Sufilight says:
But "Living Theosophy" was, as i understand it, never in the early TS days, to be made somthing that one leader or a minor group of leaders (handpicked "Eminent" Theosophists - so-called, picked by a biased hand)  indoctrinated anyone into as a belief, (wíth a heavy down-watering of the spirit of science and philosophy), because that is in opposition to altruism. The Law of Karma and Reincarnation was never made an article of Faith within the Theosophical Scoiety in its early days. So why should it happen in our time, year 2012, when the science (not belief) of psychology has made such great advances since 1875? Or rather why is it - outwardly semingly - that which is happening in not a few Theosophical Orgnizations? Is it altruism to promote the atmosphere of a sect - and not the opposite - non-sectarian altruism?
Practical altruism - promoted with one author promotions or one - biased (depending on the TS or related branch) - set of doctrines promotions (more than one author) - can never be altruism, per se. It is the open and free search, that is leading to altruism in these days of ours. For instance not ufo allergic reactions or a lack of self-criticism - called the apex of altruism.

And yes:
What is the Action Plan?

To do a much much better effort in avoiding giving the Planet and Humanity the impression that the original Theosophical Society was a sectarian one - because that is a lie. Much more effort is required as far as I am concerned. If this effort succeeds, then we will have accomplished somthing. When this effort and lack of recognition continue to fail in succeding among the present day theosophical or related theosophical organizations - the whole idea of a universal Brotherhood of Humanity will fail in proportion with it, - more or less.

All the above are of course just my views. I present them from my heart seeking to promote altruism.
I will gladly change them if someone are able to prove them wrong.

  Here is a msg from a member who has difficulty in posting. I am posting it
  on his behalf

  It is true that many of the teachings of HPB came into 'open' very long
  after they were made. The papers like the Original Programme, Diagram of
  Meditation, How to study the Secret Doctrine stand clear examples of that.

  Now, the point is to: Popularize the teaching to the masses (public).
  Digitizing the texts is one thing. It should not be forgotten that the
  theosophical movement is aimed at the 'intellectuals' to make them learn
  and work for the masses. Saying that the knowledge about Globes, Rounds and
  Chains, Root-races, Sub-races and Family-races is all 'verbose', requiring
  no immediate concern has become a 'fashion'. Theosophy should be made
  'practical - another adage is frequently used. How does one 'describe' or
  'elaborate' the methodology one has to adopt or emulate?
  "Living Theosophy" is what HPB indicated to the members, among others, as
  to how they could help the Society (Key to Theosophy). Is there a more
  royal way besides the members studying their Texts, assimilating the
  Teaching and setting an example in Living (without a proclamation or pride
  that they are doing this)? Talking and writing on the knowledge of
  Theosophy is also an equal task, if not more! What is the Action Plan?
