  • What Does Helping Others Mean to You?

    The TOS wants to know “What does helping others mean to you?” Not your definition, but why do you help others? What makes you volunteer? How has it changed your life?

    We are hoping to collect videos of people answering these questions. But if you feel shy about being on a video (camera phones are great and easy…hint hint!), we welcome you to send us an audio recording of what helping others means to you. If you send us either a video or audio, please also send us permission to use it as part of our outreach. We are intending to put together various clips as an introduction to the TOS to be used in lodges and study groups.

    We thank you in advance!

For Denver Members, It Was Looking A Lot Like Christmas

In December of 2018, members of the Denver Theosophical Society donated items from the wish list of the Lakota Waldorf School located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. From undergarments to winter coats to books to munchkin-sized eurythmy dancing slippers, members felt the warmth of a job well-done as they worked together to keep the little ones warm and happy.

Love at Its Finest

Do not blame Love for the agony it brings;
Love is the King of all paths,
And the heart not wild with longing
Is already dead, already a burial ground.

One evening in September, author Andrew Harvey came to speak at the TS headquarters about the poetry of Kabir. I had never heard him speak before. I remember reading some of his work years ago and not feeling drawn to it. At the time my (exhausted) mind was occupied with raising children and all that comes with it. From the moment a child is born, one’s life is handed over to them. It is the way it is and the way it needs to be. Children are, for a good portion of their life, defenseless creatures who need hands on help, encouragement, and immense nurturing. This is why it is the hardest job ever given to anyone. Even when you feel you have nothing left within you, your heart warms at their cry despite the frustration that all you want is to close your eyes and sleep. Many people who don’t have children can recognize this experience—all too brief from where I am now—if they have ever had a puppy. It is this constant dance between exhaustion and invigorating love that revives you to keep on going and giving. Read more about Love at Its Finest

Pondering Miracles

One of my favorite stores to shop at is Farm and Fleet. It’s a good old store found in the Midwest that once upon a time was where all the farmers and their families shopped. I remember the first time I visited the store, I felt completely intimidated. At the time, I lived in what would have been considered the country (until people like me moved in.) I lived in a subdivision on land that once belonged to a farming family. The farm lands were and still are disappearing because farmers can no longer afford to keep and cultivate their land.
