    It is true that the world is in a saddened and anxious state. But
    mark you, I think it unwise and spiritually and psychologically
    unwholesome to emphasize this, for it raises none to higher things
    but depresses courage, the courage to meet life and carry on in a
    higher and nobler way. See the beauty in and behind things, see
    the beauty in your fellow men; see likewise the ignominy and the
    ugliness in life, although do not let these latter depress you or
    discourage you. There is no reason to lose our calm, our inner
    peace, in order to become like unto them of the mobs, passion
    driven, governed by prejudice. Such an attitude will not help us
    or those who suffer. But we can send forth into the world thoughts
    of courage and hope and an optimistic looking into the future,
    founded on our own blessed God-Wisdom: that no matter what
    happens through man's folly or infamy or infidelity to his spiritual
    inner God, to his spiritual Essence, there are always right and
    justice which will ultimately triumph over all. The only thing is
    to be sure we are on the side of right and justice - and we cannot
    always judge by appearances.

    AE-George Russell was a great mystic, theosophist, artist and worker for brotherhood. Here he praises the value of Theosophy to the Dublin Lodge of the TS in 1894:

    Esoteric philosophers held that everything in nature is but a materialization of
    spirit. The Eternal First Cause is latent spirit, they said, and matter from the
    beginning. "In the beginning was the word . . . and the word was God." While
    conceding the idea of such a God to be an unthinkable abstraction to human reason,
    they claimed that the unerring human instinct grasped it as a reminiscence of
    something concrete to it though intangible to our physical senses. With the first
    idea, which emanated from the double-sexed and hitherto-inactive Deity, the first
    motion was communicated to the whole universe, and the electric thrill was
    instantaneously felt throughout the boundless space. Spirit begat force, and force
    matter; and thus the latent deity manifested itself as a creative energy.

    When; at what point of the eternity; or how? the question must always remain
    unanswered, for human reason is unable to grasp the great mystery. But, though
    spirit-matter was from all eternity, it was in the latent state; the evolution of our
    visible universe must have had a beginning.

    Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled
