    Our thoughts are with the victims of Hurricane Harvey which has left thousands without the basic necessities. We have yet to know the total effect of this disaster, however the Theosophical Order of Service and Theosophical Society in America are working together to collect funds for future disbursement. Please remember 100% of your donation will go to the impacted area as the TOS is an all volunteer organization. Thank you for your generous donation. Please use the Donate button above.

    We will continue to send thoughts of strength and peace to the area and the people traumatized by this event.

Po’Shines de la Soul: A Portland (Oregon) Lodge TOS Action Project

By Linda Phleps, TOS Liaison

On August 10, eight of us dined at Po’Shines de la Soul, a black-owned soul food restaurant with a Cajun flavor in North Portland.  It’s a small place with big windows on two sides, large overhead silver pipes and several golden chandeliers. On the walls are paintings and photos of African-American life, including a large picture of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. laughing together.  There’s a giant gum ball machine near one window and a diverse mix of people eating or coming in to buy pastries.

Our Most Holy Mission

With the unrest in the nation lately, many of us who are members of the Theosophical Society and who practice Theosophy as a way of life are quite fortunate. Theosophy gives us a wider lens in which to observe the unfolding of something that we realize does not just reside outside of ourselves, but is within us as well: “As within, so without.” The teachings of Theosophy provide a guideline as to “why” things may be happening and that, no matter what, the most important thing is to keep universal brotherhood first and foremost in our awareness. What we do to another, we do to ourselves. Read more about Our Most Holy Mission

Changes on the Horizon

Ananya Sri Ram Rajan

Happy spring! 

It is said that change is inevitable. We see this with the weather patterns, in technology, with what is “in” and what is “out,” and we see it in society as a whole. In the US we are facing changes in our governmental administration and what it decides to focus upon. The possible decrease in funding for the environment, healthcare, social welfare, education, and other areas means that even greater stress will be placed on non-profits (NPOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), who will be left to figure out how to best help those who are in need. This puts the TOS in a unique position. Read more about Changes on the Horizon
