In just a few short months the Theosophical Society will reach its 150th anniversary, surely a coveted milestone for any organization and especially one beset by frequent challenges. Might it present an opportunity?

When the initial brotherhood was formed in New York on that autumn evening in 1875 even the most far-out prophecies of its wise founders couldn’t have remotely predicted our weird and unfathomable world of a century and a half in the future – the world we live in now where the human spirit itself seems to be under attack and in mortal danger.

Mini-interviews Pauline (from the Netherlands)

The Society MI 8 Pauline 8

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

My name is Pauline. I’m from the Netherlands and I have been a member of the TS since 2019. However, I know the TS much longer; almost 13 years now. I’m the type of person who first likes to investigate different religions and philosophies before committing to something. In the past, I have investigated a bit of Kabbalah, Sufism, Baha’i faith and I have studied with the Rosicrucians for some years. Also, during my studies in Psychology, I took extra courses in Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. However, I eventually came back to Theosophy as it incorporates many of these different beliefs and philosophies and focuses on the underlying ageless wisdom. This is what attracts me to Theosophy, being inclusive of other religions, but seeking for the deeper esoteric meaning in it. Also, not being dogmatic in what one should believe, but stimulating each person to undertake his or her own search and formulate own beliefs. I believe this is essential for universal brotherhood as well, focusing on the elements that bind us together, not what separates us from each other.
