“An incorporeal Principle, not to be blasphemously anthropomorphized…”

DAILY THEOSOPHY QUOTES Thursday 18th July 2013 “Polytheism – once man claims the right of divine interference on his behalf – is logical and consistent with the philosophies of the East, all of which, whether Pantheistic or Deistic, proclaim the ONE an infinite abstraction, an absolute Something which utterly transcends the conception of the finite.

“The great law of life and progress…”
