So this is what we need and have to develop: Constancy, Courage and Presence of Mind. Constancy, to continue our work for Theosophy, The Theosophical Society and its Three Declared Objects. Courage to make decisions and follow new courses if necessary, and conquer any danger on the Path steep and thorny. Presence of Mind, meaning being alert and making use of all the possibilities life is offering us, an attitude which was described by J. Krishnamurti as “awareness” and “complete attention”.
