I am quite certain that nothing new, nothing that already has not been said, is being added in response to this question. However, it is quite instructive for each of us to ask this question of ourselves, to ponder upon it, and to make whatever adjustments in our lives that may be a natural outcome of our query. And so I am grateful for the opportunity to ponder upon this question, essential for every true Theosophist.
Prior to attempting to state how we may make Theosophy a living force in the world, it is helpful to first define our terms. What is meant by “Theosophy”? Theosophy is a word, a doctrine, and a way of life. As a word, it simply means “wisdom of the Gods,” or “divine wisdom.” As a doctrine, Theosophy offers a unique body of knowledge which, when studied and understood, assists us in making sense of the universe and of our place in it.
