Letter 19: Orpheus

To A.

When a person begins his quest he may envision it as a relationship between himself and knowledge, like there are two variables in the equation. But there are more than two variables and so we are never alone with knowledge. There is always the other, a multiplicity of otherness. Even in the most perilous moments when one is left to himself, he only has to look up or down to be with others. All this is the psychological reality of theosophy in human consciousness. H.P. Blavatsky imprinted this panoply of life onto paper. When Orpheus seeks Eurydice, there are whirrings and streakings and gods and Furies and rivers and songs. The lovers are never alone.

As ever, D.
