  At such gatherings as this, we are helped to realize more of the very essence of Theosophy than perhaps we have done hitherto. I feel than an important part of the work of the Theosophical Society is being accomplished through its conventions and conferences, which are not just occasions for talking and listening. That is a purely superficial and outward interpretation of what actually takes place. We are here in order to create an atmosphere, to set forces in action, to change ourselves, to enter with our whole hearts into the truths of the Divine Wisdom.
