Dear Dallas,

My messages to Theos-net for some uknown reason are not getting through.
Could you help me with that?
This, see below,  is one message apparently "lost in the air".
Perhaps you can give it a "lift"...

Thanks a lot,  Carlos.


Dear friends in Theos-net,

I hope this message (unlike others), does get through!





One writer who presents himself as a student of Helena Blavatsky has written

one or two articles in a website suggesting that  Robert Crosbie, the main 
founder of the United Lodge of Theosophists (ULT), broke the vows he had 
made as a student of the Esoteric School founded by H.P.B. in the 19th 

Such writers tend to appear from time to time in several countries. They 
tend to publish long, high-sounding articles about things of which they know

nothing. By doing this, they add extra weight to the well-known verses in 
the "Tao-Te-King":

"Those who know, don't talk.
Those who talk, don't know."

At least one of such persons has recently gone beyond discussing occult 
facts of which he knows nothing.  He has been sending long letters to a 
number of students in several countries, anxiously defending his decision to

give as much publicity as he can to the libels  originally invented against 
H. P. Blavatsky more than one century ago.

These people typically write against those who seek and who stimulate the 
search for the inner learning and for the lay discipleship along the lines 
established by H.P.B. and her Masters.

Such efforts are now new, and they are not original. We have had persons of 
this typeattacking H.P.B.'s work all the time since the mid-1880s. We also 
have had people successfully defending Theosophy all along.  Yet -- there is

something sad about this.

The very existence of students who try to live up to the inner side of 
H.P.B.'s Teachings seems to gravely offend these poor people.  This is 
unfortunate. No sincere student could ever aim at that.

One can only wish that these aggressive skeptics will understand and accept 
the existence of such a thing as an occult life and spiritual path.

I wish they could see  that there is an occult level of study and action 
which must be kept to those who have freely  decided to pledge themselves in

their own hearts to try  to improve themselves -- and who have made a 
commitment top help each other along that old, steep and narrow way to 
Eternal Wisdom.

The lack of respect that these skeptics seem to show for the inner instances

of the theosophical movement  might be connected to a lack of respect they 
have for their own inner consciousness and  conscience.

It follows that to wish them well, and to send them good thoughts, is part 
of our task.

On the other hand, our mission also includes preserving the movement and the

Teaching from these occult successors of the 19th century slanderers 
Vsevolod Solovyov,  Emma Coulomb and others.

It is not a coincidence that both Solovyov and the Coulombs, as well as 
their 21st century  successors, first infiltrated the theosophical movement,

and only then started to attack H.P.B. and the Masters' work from inside the

theosophical circles.

As paradoxes are part of the occult life, there is a bright side to this.

Esoteric philosophy states that great opportunities are generally in direct 
proportion to the difficulty of challenges.

Therefore, putting a limit to the slanderous action of "modern" skeptics may

be a golden opportunity now available to earnest students worldwide.

Best regards,  Carlos Cardoso Aveline, from Brazil.
