Human Nature in General Is the Same Now As a Million Years Ago

As for human nature in general, it is the same now as it was a million of years ago: Prejudice based upon selfishness; a general unwillingness to give up an established order of things for new modes of life and thought — and occult study requires all that and much more — pride and stubborn resistance to Truth if it but upsets their previous notions of things, — such are the characteristics of your age, and specially of the middle and lower classes.” (K.H. In T. Baker, editor. The Mahatma Letters to A.P. Sinnett, L. 1, p. 3; emphasis aded)
