Re: Theos-World On Scott-Elliot - quem vive da mente, mente.

Hi Friends and Carlos:

Let me so better understand :
Was that same " Mary" that used to claim to be a channel, an intermedium between the master M and AP Sinnett during the period of time in which Sinnett was trying to be in contact with the mahatmas independently of HPB´s activities?
In his Bio he also wrote that the master said, in a séance, that he should not tell HPB about the <<supposed>>> contact because HPB could be jeallous somehow.
So, if it´s true, didn´t the master say that he was not in contact with this Mary and that the only channel was HPB? I can´t remember if this occasion was indeed about this woman in special.
So I gess that AP Sinnett was responsible by the distortions and mistifications brought by CWL that fed the Adyar´s attraction for psychic contacts and experiments.
So it was not CWL that, besides AB, started the investigations in the occult field, but mediums of the class of a certain Mary who were used as instruments?
If it is so, I can now understand why today´s spiritist books, mainly in Brasil, get so similar
to those explanations given in books from Leadbeater and Annie Besant.
In portuguese I could quote " quem vive da mente, mente!", which means
approximately " the one who lives relying in his mind, lies".
Mind is aways playing tricks on us.

Dear Theo,

You will find something, at least, in "Theosophical History".

His wife was "Mary", the medium who purported to talk to Masters in séances
in the "inner group" organized by A. P. Sinnett.

It was there that C. W. Leadbeater started to "talk to the Masters". The
magazine "Theosophical History" published the revealing "Autobiography" of
Mr. Alfred Sinnett, in which he frankly tells all about it. Scott-Eliot was
also a member of such a mediumnistic group.

When Sinnett died, Leadbeater wrote that in the 1890s his "inner group" made
important "occult investigations", and so on. Sinnett also says that Annie
Besant joined that
mediumnistic group after HPB's death, that is, while AB was already the
"Outer Head" of the Esoteric School, Adyar.

So it seems that the occult fancies started precisely in Sinnett's inner
group with "Mary", a pseudonymn for Scott-Elliot's wife.

I hope that helps, even if marginally. If you want me to, I can give you
the bibliographical references.

Dear all,

Does anyone have - or know where to find - biographical information on
Scott-Elliot, the author of The Story of Atlantis and The Lost Lemuria?
I am not abel to find it at all in the usual theosophical sources.

Kind regards,
