In Theosophical circles, we often tend to look to our past for guidance and inspiration. However, the essence of Theosophy is its relevance to life as it is being lived in the present. While we can learn from the past, it is the quality of our present actions that help shape the world we live in. To live a spiritual life is to make a positive and uplifting contribution to the well-being of humanity regardless of our particular role or position in the world. This is the timeless legacy of Theosophy.
