from the Editors
The emblem for the Newsletter comes from two early theosophical magazines, taking the radiant AUM of the Path, edited by William Q Judge, and combining it with the Egyptian “winged soul” from Theosophy of Robert Crosbie…
The newsletter is intended for students and associates of the United Lodge of Theosophists firstly as a place to read, research and comment on the seed ideas given to help us navigate these times with understanding, wisdom and charity, and secondly to provide a place to re-examine the legacy that Robert Crosbie left to the ULT for the 20th and now, as it turns out, also the 21st century.
Crosbie advised Lodges to engage in “free and frequent communications” and so build a shared sense of fraternity and to create lasting and rugged bonds of respect and friendship. This vision persists and will appeal to those who – as WQJ so poetically put it – may “ever feel the surge of the vast deeps that lie beyond the heart’s small ebb” and who sense the possibilities of this universal path.
