It is interesting to see several threads of thought weave themselves together as a tapestry of sorts. Over the last several days a couple themes have emerged, more or less in sync with each other.
The first is the resumption of a discussion on Cultural Creatives, originally started by Martin Euser. Martin is one of the very most creative people in the theosophical world. His combination of social consciousness and thinking outside of the box make everything he writes an exploration…Continue

The Goddess and the Role of Women
It is only when women start to organize in large numbers that we become a political force, and begin to move towards the possibility of a truly democratic society in which every human being can be brave, responsible, thinking and diligent in the struggle to live at once freely and unselfishly.

The new website www.krotonaarchives.com setup by Joseph Ross is a welcome addition to theosophical history.

Curiosity is what defines my life for the most part. There is a lot to learn, and sometimes it seems like all answering a question does is breed more questions. That is a good thing, I guess.
