A child, as much as a man, resents a punishment, or even a reproof he believes to be unmerited, far more than he does a severer punishment, if he feels that it is merited. Belief in Karma is the highest reason for reconcilement to one's lot in this life, and the very strongest incentive towards effort to better the succeeding re-birth.

I have been interested in Theosophy for quite a while. While I never 'subscribed' to it, I've always found it to contain so many intriguing aspects as well as mysteries.

It certainly gave birth to bringing the 'ancient aliens' concept to public attention, the mahatmas, Atlantis, Aryans, comparative region, post-Buddhism, and many others.

The Secret Doctrine is absolutely a great book (regardless of what the conclusions one might or might not have over it's validity), as it The Voice Of The Silence. The mysterious and still not rediscovered "Book of the Golden Precepts/Book Of Dzyan" is also an incredibly fascinating thing (featured within those two books) to contemplate about.

Both Dion Fortune and Alice Bailey both produced some interesting Theosophical literature (even though they are generally considered "out" by orthodoxy)

A good, sympathetic biography of Helena Blavatsky, who died 8 May, 1891, is now in PDF format:

Conditional immortality

Immortality is possible, but only with conditions fulfilled.

Quote:
No noble thought, no grand aspiration, desire, or divine immortal love,
can come into the brain of the man of clay and settle there, except
as a direct emanation from the higher to, and through, the lower
Ego; all the rest, intellectual as it may seem, proceeds from the
‘shadow,’ the lower mind, in its association and commingling with
Kāma, [passions] and passes away and disappears for ever. But the
mental and spiritual ideations of the personal ‘I’ return to it, as parts of
the Ego’s essence, and can never fade out. Thus of the personality
that was, only its spiritual experiences, the memory of all that
is good and noble, with the consciousness of its ‘I,’ blended with
that of all the other personal ‘I’s’ that preceded it, [in previous lifetimes]
survive and become immortal.

Blavatsky

Ethics over intellect & egotism is the key:

Quote:
Happiness
cannot exist where Truth is absent. Erected upon the shifting sands of
human fiction and hypotheses, happiness is merely a house of cards
tumbling down at the first whiff; it cannot exist in reality as long as
egotism reigns supreme in civilized societies. As long as intellectual
progress will refuse to accept a subordinate position to ethical progress,
and egotism will not give way to the Altruism preached by Gautama and
the true historical Jesus (the Jesus of the pagan sanctuary, not the Christ
of the Churches), happiness for all the members of humanity will remain
a Utopia.

Blavatsky
