Re: Theos-World Last word from me until April; comment on John's post

Before you disappear, I want to go on record with some comments about
your much-disputed work. I mentioned a week or so ago that I had
obtained "In Search of the Masters," and "The Masters Revealed" from
our library. I have been reading in the first volume, and, although I
haven't read all of it, I do have some reactions.
It seems to me that you have produced here a very comprehensive and
well-researched project. You began with a search, stated quite
honestly, and you went to great lengths to discover all you could
that would be relevent to your quest. You may not have come to the
conclusion I might have come to (although in all honesty I must
confess that I have never made any such research) but nowhere in my
reading have I come across anything that I would interpret as
disrespectful of HPB or the Masters. All I have found so far is your
conclusions based on your research, which seem to me quite sincere
and, from your point of view, defensible.
I am reminded of an image of truth, paraphrased from HPB, which
offers a body of water in the moonlight, sparkling with myriads of
wavelets reflecting the light of the moon. Each reflection appears to
be different and separate from the others, but all come from one
source, the moon. The point is made that truth is like that. There is
one truth, but it is reflected into the minds of men in many and
varied ways. It is a theosophical axiom that diametrically opposed
statements can both be true. It's all a matter of our point of view.
I will continue my delving into your very interesting work, and, in
the meantime, wish you good luck with your current project.
All the best,
