As many of you know, in my opinion H.P. Blavatsky was arguably the most remarkable woman to walk this Earth since Mary, mother of St. Issa. She brought the Ageless Wisdom to the Western world, and changed the future of humanity forever. Today I'll share what is said to be the last thing she ever wrote, found on her desk after her death. It is an amazing blessing for us all, and offers everyone hope that regardless of how we "succeed" or "fail," our Divine Estate is guaranteed.
"There is a road, steep and thorny, beset with perils of every kind - but yet a road; and it leads to the heart of the universe. I can tell you how to find Those who will show you the secret gateway that leads inwards only, and closes fast behind the neophyte for evermore. There is no danger that dauntless courage cannot conquer. There is no trial that spotless purity cannot pass through. There is no difficulty that strong intellect cannot surmount. For those who win onwards, there is reward past all telling; the power to bless and save humanity. For those who fail, there are other lives in which success may come."

A final thought from her Collected Writings:
"Conquered passions, like slain tigers, can no longer turn and rend you. Be hopeful, then, not despairing. With each morning's awakening try to live through the day in harmony with the Higher Self. "Try" is the battle-cry taught by the Teachers to each pupil. Naught else is expected of you. One who does his best does all that can be asked. There is a moment when even a Buddha ceases to be a sinning mortal and takes his first step toward Buddhahood. . . . It should be the aim of each and all of us to strive with all the intensity of our natures to follow and imitate [the masters]."
