The Real Choices To Be Made
In 2014 Are Not About Personalities
Carlos Cardoso Aveline
Who’s going to be the next international president and leader of the Theosophical Society (Adyar), starting in 2014?
The Adyar TS gathers together some 80 percent or more of the nominal theosophists worldwide.
It makes or breaks for the movement as a whole. It is co-responsible for the future of mankind. It needs to accelerate a rebirth of Ethics which it is now undergoing already. However, for those who can only think of personalities and outward aspects of life there is no interest whatsoever in any of the challenges facing the theosophical movement in the present century. Ill-informed and naïve people think Ethics and Duty are mere words. Children-souls feel the right thing to do is to gossip and speculate about personal names, as if this sort of misinformation had any substance except wind.
They can’t pay attention, for instance, to the subtle yet clear language used by Dr. N. C. Ramanujachary in his interview to “The Aquarian Theosophist”, November 2013 edition: “Living Up to the Original Programme”. 
Childish souls apart, the matter of the fact is that the Adyar Society has been for decades slowly getting rid of the 1900-1934 illusions and false versions of theosophy. They have been mainly dysfunctional since the 1980s.
The process of recovering Ethics and of cherishing once more the original teachings is now firmly taking place and accelerating due to the dynamics of karma, with limited help from any visible leaders. It can be, and should be, accelerated in a conscious way by the next international president in Adyar.
The awakening has to be gradual: it does not need to be too slow. Personal pride plays no role in real theosophy or in helping mankind. Strong steps could be taken, and a price will have to be paid anyway, before opening the path towards a healthy future. A person, a lodge or national section can make the whole difference. 
Tests and opportunities come together, an unavoidable truism which happens to be valid for the Adyar Society, for the United Lodge of Theosophists, the Theosophical Society (Pasadena) and every other sincerely theosophical association around the world.
