This book is a brief epitome of George S. Arundale's Theosophy at its present stage of unfoldment, for though there are certain fundamental principles underlying the Science of Theosophy - possibly such as Arundale has ventured to indicate in the Envoi - at the end, each student should be gradually finding his own Theosophy for him - or herself, his or her own understanding of the Science of Living.

From Chapter 11 - 'You and Death' (p. 165 & 166):

" A healthy-minded individual, with a minimum of that ignorance about death which is the cause of so much sorrow, will make friends with death, treat him as a colleague and helper, and give him sensible co-operation when at last he comes. And if ignorance has not been at work year after year erecting what it thinks to be formidable barriers against death, barriers which death so easily overcomes, then not only will death be less inclined to be tiresome, but, when he comes, he will feel at home as with a friend. We tend to summon death the more we seek to repel him. And death must smile to watch the frantic efforts we make to keep alive, when so often he would be able to offer a far more profitable condition than that, which we call life; which is but the shadow of a shade of life. What we have to do is to make death part of our scheme and plan of life. We must give him his due place in life, for he is a much life as that which we call life. He is called death only because he is a different kind of life. "
