Erica, I only have a minute right now, but I will return to your
wonderful post next week.
I understand Bruce and Carlos now. I do not agree with them, but I
understand their thought processes and I see where I and others differ
in our own thinking. Let me just briefly say, that Bruce and Carlos
appear trapped in a line of thought that will produce eternal divisions
of humanity -- forever pitting man against man. They have pledged an
allegiance to a particular movement instead of to the objects of the
movement generalized upon humanity as a whole. I see the 3 objects as
representing the way and the path of our human journey through the arc
of the ascent. The Theosophical Movement and the Theosophical Society
are but single attempts of humans coming together in brotherhood to find
their way together. The TM and TS do not own the 3 objects. However,
Bruce and Carlos seem to believe that the TM is the only one true
instance and that any attempt to follow the 3 objects from another
perspective is anathema, even though a cursory reading of modern day
events shows clearly that Divine Wisdom is on a roll without the
Our awareness and direct experience of the Unity of the One and All is
not dependent on the mundane trappings of ANY theosophical organization
whose members continue to shine their light upon the relative truth of a
particular time, place, and people, as though, if given enough light,
that relative truth will be seen as the Ultimate Reality.
Erica, I hope you do not leave this list. You and many others bring a
sanity and a serenity to our endeavors here that is more valuable than gold.
peace and love,

Here they are trying to kill those who think different under the
claim they are Dugpas. Any similarity?
But this is not something expressed in this group now, I am four
years member here and such kind of claims and accusations are going
on here all the time or at least the last four years. There is a
pattern that goes on and on here, it is like this group can't move
forward but keeps rewinding and rewinding. And such pattern:
Endless attacks to the T.S. Adyar
Endless critics to C.W.L.
Endless defense of Judge and Blavatsky
Endless accusations, to other fellow writers calling them as Dugpas,
black magicians etc.
Well such are the basics of this group and I think should also be
explicit in its objects and not veiled! Even me who I am student of
Blavatsky and I have also my critics to C.W.L., I can't stand it no
more! I am not planning to spend the rest of my life or even one year
more reading the same kind of postings as I am doing the last four
Below there is a quote from the Mahatma Letters, letter n. 8
" Love, an Immense Love for humanity — as a Whole! For it
is "Humanity" which is the great Orphan, the only disinherited one
upon this earth, my friend. And it is the duty of every man who is
capable of an unselfish impulse to do something, however little, for
its welfare. Poor, poor humanity! It reminds me of the old fable of
the war between the Body and its members; here too, each limb of this
huge "Orphan" — fatherless and motherless — selfishly cares but for
itself. The body uncared for suffers eternally, whether the limbs are
at war or at rest. Its suffering and agony never cease. . . ."K.H.
And now as the cherry on the cake is the post below! What he is
trying to tell us? Trying to justify all this attacks also to members
this group as theosophical principle of the Universal Brotherhood, as
a theosophical duty? How far from the truth he is! Theosophical
duties are far away from behaviour that express fanaticism and not a
drop of compassion towards others. If he could probably he would
include in the above quote that humanity do not include theosophists
which thinks in a different way!
Also as a member of the Theosophical Society Adyar, I think I have to
take a position, and what that would be? To leave this group that,
has been used basically for endless attacks to the above
organization, and when they are not attacking Adyar they will find
always somebody here to attack!
Ps: And I leave a message for you Carlos, don't forget you were once
a dedicated member of the T.S. Adyar, and I am sure you would have
stood for the society! So do not blame other for acting and doing
something that also you would have done years ago.
