Theosophy: an introductory study course:
[from John Algeo, fourth edition]

H. P. Blavatsky, one of the founders of the Theosophical Society, wrote: “Theosophy is the shoreless ocean of universal truth, love, and wisdom reflecting its radiance upon earth. . . . The Theosophical Society was formed to show mankind that it exists.” To be sure, this “shoreless ocean” is not the exclusive possession of the Theosophical Society; it exists everywhere and has always been available to the fearlessly questing mind. Some of the central concepts of this universal truth have, however, been formulated more specifically in the literature of Theosophy than elsewhere, and their totality is coherently set forth in Theosophy, which has a special relevance to our times. It is therefore without dogmatic claim to a statement of final truth that the present edition of this course is offered. Only basic information can be presented here. The student should keep in mind also that the explanations given are presented as hypotheses for consideration, not as ultimate pronouncements on any of the various subjects. Because these ideas are metaphysical (or beyond the physical), they are not subject to laboratory proof and need not be accepted as irrefutable. If, however, they ring true and can be verified by your own experience, they will throw light on many otherwise insoluble problems and, in that way, can prove to be guide stones to further progress on the path of life. The words of Kahlil Gibran in his essay on “Self-Knowledge” are appropriate to keep in mind in pursuing this study:

Say not, “I have found the truth,”
But rather, “I have found a truth.”
Say not, “I have found the path of the soul,”
But rather say, “I have met the soul walking upon the path.”
