An addition by the author:
In June 2014 I wrote that all Theosophists should build up an Ideal of the most perfect Theosophical Movement each of us can imagine. We are still building up that image. The ‘Naarden declaration’ was a big step forward. A lot of Theosophists pondered deeply about our Theosophical aims and how to achieve them. There sure was a brotherly wish in all of us to unite our forces in the attempt to form a nucleus of universal brotherhood. We are on our way, but the road is still long.
Only the Theosophical teachings can bring the so needed change in our troubled world. Therefore a next step in achieving unity is that Theosophists talk frankly and openly about the teachings. What do we understand of the message of H. P. B.? Should we just believe that message or is there a way to prove it for ourselves? Even if we interpret the teachings slightly differently from each other, if we exchange our views, we all will become a bit wiser.
