The Origin of Annie Besant's Adepthood

below, a letter to a fellow truth-seeker whow wrote to me complaining
about the significant number of controversies in the Theosophical Movement. Carlos.


Dear Friend,

Brotherly friendship and understanding need freedom and diversity.

It is important that you read Letter 120, Mahatma Letters, Chronological Edition, on the London Lodge Crisis. (I do not remember the Letter number in non-cronological editions).

It was written by a Mahatma after consulting with his own Master about theosophical controversies. The essence of the Letter is that, according to the Masters, the contrast of views and opinions,
once they are sincere, must be freely exercized and even preserved from hypocritical make-belief and outer harmony.

It coincides with a famous poem written by English poet Alexander Pope, which says (and I quote the idea, no the words themselves):

"Every disharmony is a harmony that you cannot understand yet".

So true harmony will never emerge from repressing diversity and true contrast in nature.

Thought monoculture is as disastrous as agricultural monoculture.

Thought diversity in the mind world is as important as biodiversity in natural environment.

The great treason, conscious or unconscious, promoted by CWL and A. Besant against the
HPB Mission (a Mission, by the way, which is NOT limited to the 19th century) was to create rituals as a way of establishing an uniformity of thought under their own popish control.

Now, there is a difference between contrast, frankness, dversity, and hatred, enmity and the like.

It is by puting on the table and freely examining the failures of the movement as a whole (and
occultly Adyar is NOT separated from the rest of the movement), that we will gradually eliminate all bitter feelings among us.

I do not have access to Internet from my Library, but I can tell tomorrow you the number of the Letter 120 in the other editions of the Mahatma Letters. Tell me if you want that.

And, by the way, if you study the M. Letters you will see that CWL's writings have nothing to see
with the Mahatmas' teachings.

AND --- do you happen to know that CWL was never admitted to the Esoteric School founded by H.P.B.?

He received a couple of letters from the Mahatmas, yes, but soon he was out of focus. He never was admitted to the HPB's inner school. Instead, he was busy having mediumnistic "chats" with imaginary Masters in the 'inner circle' of Mr. A. P. Sinnett, in London. A. Besant also took part, there, right after HPB's death. (See Mr. A.P. Sinnett Memoirs.) And soon the nonsense began.

Then CWL became the source of Mrs. A.Besant "contact" with her own imaginary Masters.

It was in this way that Besant finnally anounced, in 1925 that she had attained Adepthood, as
I have documented here while illustrating the life of Mr. James Wedgwood, the founder of the Liberal Catholic Church and another Adyar "Adept" in 1925. The inquestionable source is Mary Lutyens, J. Krishnamurti's biographer.

It's History. These are documented facts. As a source, A.P. Sinnett was never questioned.

He was international vice-president under Annie Besant, and close friends with CWL and her until he died.

I have all the data and can bring them all here to you. I believe it is indeed important that we
understand the origin of all the "clairvoyant" fancies in order to understand them and then to GET RID OF THEM.

I hope you have the patience to stand the "ugly truths" we must accept, examine and learn from, in order to go ahead to the next step.

Best regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline
