This issue of Theosophy Forward is stacked with many articles of interest and especially the category GOOD NEWS has a great number of entries this time, go there and have a look around. You’ll notice that there is much we can be proud of; our movement is certainly in motion but obviously much work is to be done still.

This issue continues with another tribute in “We Remember”, this time dedicated to a distinctive and dedicated Theosophist from Iceland, Einar Adalsteinsson. Iceland is a wonderful country and its relative small population is not only creative but also interested in various forms of spirituality. Check out our category THEOSOPHY.

1. What’s your name, where are you from and how long have you been a member of the TS?

My name is Michiel Haas, English speaking people say Michael, it is much easier to pronounce. I’m from the Netherlands. In my youth I was a member of the young Theosophists, then I had my wild period and quit the TS membership. Later I came back as a member. All by all I guess I have been a quarter of a century a member, maybe a little longer, but I have always been a Theosophist.

Editorial - Who Are We?

Editorial

Jan Nicolaas Kind – Brazil

Attentive readers must have noticed that in this third quarter issue of Theosophy Forward there is a lot of news about events that took place, or are going take place in the Netherlands. It is not just a coincidence, much is currently going on in the “lowlands” and it is good to take notice of that. Next to what currently is happening there, the country, small as it is, has always been very influential Theosophically speaking, just think of Theosophical scholars of world fame like Johan van Manen and Henk Spierenburg, or the painter Piet Mondrian, and what to think of the renowned architects J.L.M. Lauweriks and K.P.C. de Bazel. Recognizing the value of other beautiful places on earth however, your editor hereby solemnly pledges not to leave the rest of the world out, of course not, so do have a good look around in the third quarter issue and in future issues of your favorite Theosopical magazine.

The Society Editorial 1b
Your editor solemnly pledges …

This year I spent most of the month of August in my home country, the Netherlands. It had been twelve months since I was there last. In 2014 it was a very short visit in order to participate in ITC 2014 in Naarden. On that occasion it was just the conference and after that I had to return to Brazil immediately, my second motherland. This time though I had the opportunity to stay a little longer and that gave me the opportunity to visit relatives, friends and the unavoidable “sights” in the city of my birth, beautiful Amsterdam. This city is like an always loyal lover; you can stay away from it for years, but as soon as you return to it, the city embraces you warmly as if you have never been away.
