Wherever we look, we observe the forces of progress and of retrogression vying for dominion of minds and souls. When viewed in isolation this is cause for real concern, but when seen as symptomatic of a much needed harrowing process, we have grounds for hope that the new seeding will germinate in fertile soil. Just as cyclic renewal of forms occurs in every kingdom so that the new flowering can take place, so fresh and dynamic insights into the role and destiny of man and of our cosmic parent can rejuvenate our thought-structures.
For those who have touched the theosophic stream in former lives, but who as yet may be unaware of the responsibility this imposes, such could be the moment of awakening the higher self is waiting for — when once again we inwardly connect up with ourselves and resume the unending quest. From then on our lives take on a new dimension: no longer content to drift, the inner struggle intensifies between our Ariadne self which would lead us out of the maze of material interests, and our personal self which for a time tries to ignore its guidance. But our Ariadne will never let us quite forget — it cannot, for we are bound to it irrevocably. It is none other than our sutratman, the "thread of radiance" that unites us to our god-self. More wondrous still, it also links us to the god-self or atman of every human being who has ever lived on earth — a cosmic oneness that is beyond the power of man, god, or demon to annihilate. from TO LIGHT A THOUSAND LAMPS by Grace F.

Its philosophy is a contemporary presentation of the perennial wisdom underlying the world's religions, sciences, and philosophies.
The objectives of The Theosophical Society as stated in its constitution are:
