The Sevenfold Nature of the Theosophical Society

How does the Sevenfold Nature of man, and of the universe, as first presented in the Cosmological Notes, define a Spiritual Path? Does the Theosophical Society also have a Sevenfold Nature? How does this Sevenfold Nature indicate a Spiritual Path for the Movement? What should we do, as an institution, a Lodge or study group, when a new inquirer comes to our door?
