I have to thank Krsanna Durán for bringing here one of my personal messages
to her, so that I can
clarify the concept of magnetic trap.
I wrote to Krsanna, in a personal communication:
"If you have the patience and compassion necessary to help more in the
disruption of such a magnetic TRAP, I guess it will be a significant
SERVICE to the cause of truth."
Disrupting a "magnetic trap" is not disrupting the list.
"Disrupting the magnetic trap" is, as I believe I made clear in the last few
weeks, disrupting the illusion that CWL's Theosophy is as authentic as HPB's
And Krsanna helped that.
Why the expression "magnetic trap"? Because those who get interested in
Theosophy enter into the Adyar Society and their loyalty is gradually
transferred from the Abstrat Ideal and from the CAUSE to the Corporation,
to the ritual, often to Masonty and Liberal Catholic Church.
This, I see as a trap.
Because you cannot see that step by step the commitment you had with the
ideal of universal brotherhood gets trapped and prisoner inside a
The expression "small revolution" means the process of intense debate we
were living on theosophy and pseudo-theosophy.
As to the feeling of "magnetic trap" -- I first felt it with regard to
Co-Masonry, where people go from one "degree" to another "degree", getting
more and more involved in the magnetism of
This magnetic trap (which we can also call "morphic field trap" to use
Rupert Sheldrake's expression) is probably responsible for the fact that
many Adyar TS members, when confronted with facts, cannot actually react as
Many of them will react in a defensive way and reject a calm examination of
facts. I myself was rather slow in reacting to facts, because "loyalty to
the Society" was mixed with my "loyalty to the CAUSE".
Another level of ritualistic trap is the "Egyptian Rite", about which
Gregory Tillett, Ramón Sordo and Geoffrey Farthing wrote.
Showing illusions as they are, or disrupting them, was and is my goal. In
the process, my own self-illusions get exposed and I learn more.
Loyalty to the institutions in themselves is the "magnetic trap". We should
be able to be "loyal to the CAUSE".
