Quote:
Our Ego, that which lives and thinks and feels
independently of us in our mortal casket, does more than
believe. It knows that there exists a God in nature, for the
sole and invincible Artificer of all lives in us as we live in
Him. No dogmatic faith or exact science is able to uproot
that intuitional feeling inherent in man, when he has once
fully realized it in himself. Difficult, nay, impossible, as it
seems to science to find out the invisible, universal motor
of all -- Life, to explain its nature, or even to suggest a
reasonable hypothesis for the same, the mystery is but half
a mystery, not merely for the great adepts and seers, but
even for the true and firm believers in a spiritual world. To
the simple believer, there remains divine faith. The latter is
firmly rooted in his inner senses; in his unerring intuition,
with which cold reason has naught to do, he feels it cannot
play him false. Let human-born, erroneous dogmas, and
theological sophistry contradict each other; let one crowd
off the other, and the subtile casuistry of one creed fell to
the ground the crafty reasoning of another; truth remains
one, and there is not a religion, whether Christian or
heathen, that is not firmly built upon the rock of ages --
God and immortal spirit.
Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled

A system described as "alive" fits this theosophy pretty nicely. I think.

Quote:
When, years ago, we first traveled over the East, we came
in contact with certain men, endowed with such mysterious
power and such profound knowledge that we may truly
designate them as the sages of the Orient. To their
instructions we lent a ready ear. They showed us that by
combining science with religion, the existence of God and
immortality of man's spirit may be demonstrated like a
problem of Euclid. The Oriental philosophy has room for
no other faith than an absolute and immovable faith in the
omnipotence of man's own immortal self. This
omnipotence comes from the kinship of man's spirit with
the Universal Soul -- God! Science, theology, every human
hypothesis and conception born of imperfect knowledge,
lost forever their authoritative character in our sight.
Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled

Default Golden Chain

Quote:
Universal Unity and Causation; Human Solidarity; the Law of Karma; Re-incarnation. These are the four links of the golden chain which should bind humanity into one family, one universal Brotherhood. If the action of one reacts on the lives of all, and this is the true scientific idea, then it is only by all men becoming brothers and all women sisters, and by all practising in their daily lives true brotherhood and true sisterhood, that the real human solidarity, which lies at the root of the elevation of the race, can ever be attained. It is this action and interaction, this true brotherhood and sisterhood, in which each shall live for all and all for each, which is one of the fundamental Theosophical principles that every Theosophist should be bound, not only to teach, but to carry out in his or her individual life.
Blavatsky, Key to Theosophy

The only “Essentials” in the Religion of Humanity are—virtue, morality, brotherly love, and kind sympathy with every living creature, whether human or animal. This is the common platform that our [Theosophical] Society offers to all to stand upon; the most fundamental differences between religions and sects sinking into insignificance before the mighty problem of reconciling humanity, of gathering all the various races into one family, and of bringing them all to a conviction of the utmost necessity in this world of sorrow to cultivate feelings of brotherly sympathy and tolerance, if not actually love.
Blavatsky, Collected Writings IV:502
