Re: CWL Describes Daily Life on Mars

Mr. Carlos,

Most of the information that Leadbeater provides in his books was 
obtained during his travels in the astral world. I am assuming that 
are like me and are unable to visit the astral world consciously. So 
just like me you can only verify what exists in the physical world. 

So this may be just as hard for you to believe as believing 
Leadbeater's stories or that there is a such a person as Sanat 
Kumara - but from what I understand, the living beings on most of the 
other planets do not have dense physical bodies, they only have 
etheric bodies (also astal, mental etc). Hence, none of them are 
visible to the human eye (or to Nasa's instruments).

Someday, both you and I may acquire etheric vision and/or learn to 
travel in the astral world (this may take a few more lives). When 
that happens, we can verify for ourselves how accurate Leadbeater was 
in his descriptions (the astral world is full of distortions, so I 
sure there are many inaccuracies). In the mean time, please don't 
imagine that you know everything there is to know about life or non-
life on Mars.
