Once an earnest student joins the Theosophical Society, there are no more meaningless or trifling circumstances in his life, for each one is a link purposely placed in the chain of events that is to lead him to the Golden Gate. Each step, each person he meets, every word uttered, may be purposely placed into the day’s sentence for the purpose of giving certain importance to the chapter it belongs to, and karmic meaning to the volume of life.
