Re: Socrates and his execution.
>From what I was able to understand, Socrates had both the average
knowledge everyone enjoys but there was also some
wisdom from his Higher Self which came forth in his questions and
arguments. He was not "Initiated" in the Greek Mysteries.
But those around him who were Initiates, detected he was letting loose
some of the knowledge that only pledged Initiates knew.
The rule was then that such knowledge was not to be revealed. If
revealed it was punishable by death.
Socrates was unaware of the fact he was trespassing.
But he was a citizen loyal to the laws of Athens. (see APOLOGY) and
so he accepted the judgment and drank the hemlock as was required.
In these days the rules seem to have changed as The SECRET DOCTRINE
reveals a great deal of what was a secret in the days of Socrates. In
ISIS UNVEILED in one place ( II 307) H P B states she was given
"permission" to reveal secrets hitherto hidden.
We must conclude that there was a change of cycle and this revelation
became useful for mankind as a whole

Subject: RE Societies that study Theosophy today in this era.
I have this question still in my mind:
Socrates had both "Lesser" (public) and "greater" (secret) aspects.
rare (what's inside)? Was he very lucky (not at the end though)?
What does history say?
