Re: Theos-World Concerning Secrecy - H. P. Blavatsky's Esoteric Instructions

Hallo Cass and all,

My views are:

"Cass: Perhaps their reasons are driven through ignorance rather than through evil? I am partially convinced that any press for HPB is good press, that it is better to give a version of the ancient truths, even as a substitute theory, than to continue down the path of christianity, et al."

M. Sufilight:
Yes, Ignorance is maybe a better word, than unconscious sorcery.
To have no moral stance or to give ones audience and readers a blurred impression on ones moral stance
is NOT at all good when writing about HPB.
Maybe this is what Carlos have been referring to when protesting against Daniel Caldwell's various activities.

Do not publish anything theosophical in any manner what so ever without taking a clear stance.
And do not publish anything if it clearly misleads the Seekers after Truth or the potential upcoming Seekers after Truth.
When you are influential your duty is different, than when you are almost ignored. Some websites are for instance more influential than others.
The below quote have parallels to this.


Idries Shah has written:
"Rationalizations, association of ideas, and lack of humor often go
together and can usually be disentangled. I was once standing at a corner of
the huge market street called the Bhindi Bazaar in Bombay, when a bus stopped
and a troop of determined Western seekers-after-truth descended and clustered
around an old man who was squatting on the side of the road. They
photographed him and chattered excitedly. One of the visitors tried to start
a conversation with him, but he only stared back, so she remarked to the
guide, "What a sweet old man; he must be a real live saint. Is he a saint?"

The Indian, who had a sense of humor as well as an interest in not
wanting to tell a lie and a need to please his clients, said, "Madam, saint
he may be, but to us he is the neighborhood rapist."

She immediately replied, "Oh, yes, I've heard of that; it involves their
religion. I guess he must be a Tantrist!"

(Here is the whole story from which the above was taken:
Part 1 http://www.theosophy.com/theos-talk/200303/tt00041.html
Part 2 http://www.theosophy.com/theos-talk/200303/tt00042.html
Part 3 http://www.theosophy.com/theos-talk/200303/tt00043.html
Part 4 http://www.theosophy.com/theos-talk/200303/tt00044.html )


Maybe it is just me, but I can easily find some members at Theos-talk who has a tendency to fit with the above Western seekers-after-truth.
:-)

As I see it people are crying out for psychoteraphy and better psychoteraphy, which is the same as what many of the New Age groups really are offering.
The fact is though, that many people do not know, that this is what is actually happening to them, when they enrol themseleves into such a group.
Whether this is true about some of the groups known as Theosophical or pseudo-Theosophical one will have to find out by one self.

M. Sufilight:
I think it appears to be important to consider if there are or are not any, (like Blavatsky said), "enemies at the gates" today in the various theosophical groups leaderships. For instance "enemies at the gate" which seeks occult power, authority and prestige.

Cass: I am getting a sense of fear coming from you that occult knowledge must be for only the righteous, but who can decide, who is righteous. Perhaps I am complacent but I believe that the Masters are watching over us and will not allow anything to stop the divine plan of evolution. Even if it means many souls may perish there will be other opportunities in this and other solar systems for us to "know ourselves"

M. Sufilight:
What you sense as fear is in fact compassion. Just try to read my comments in this email. You think the Masters are watching over us.
Then I wonder, what made the Coulomb incident happen? What created the Leadbeater scandal within TS? What created the Liberal Catholic Church and its scandals?

I will one more time repeat what Blavatsky said. And you might want to call Blavatsky a woman with fear.
But I am quite certain, that her agenda was compassion and Altruism.
I quote Blavatsky:

An excerpt:
THEOSOPHY OR JESUITISM? written by Blavatsky
"Theosophy and Jesuitism are the two opposite poles, one far above,
the other far below even that stagnant marsh. Both offer power--one to the
spiritual, the other to the psychic and intellectual Ego in man. The former
is "the wisdom that is from above . . . pure, peaceable, gentle . . . full
of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy," while
the latter is "the wisdom that descendeth not from above, but is earthly,
sensual, DEVILISH."3 One is the power of Light, the other that of Darkness.
. . ."
http://www.blavatsky.net/blavatsky/arts/TheosophyOrJesuitism.htm

Blavatsky often said, that the jesuits were the most dangerous group to the theosophical cause.
It is this dilemma, call it esoterical if you like, which always will hunt Theosophy and theosophy.
The fact is, that - today - many so-called theosophist are quite clearly doing almost nothing - or at least embarrassingly little on this issue.
They just sit in their chairs and wait, that the Masters should do all and everything.

M. Sufilight:
Maybe some will say I am too concerned,
but according to Blavatsky we have that ParaBrahman is not a "he":

"Parabraham is not this or that, it is not even consciousness, as
it cannot be related to matter or anything conditioned. It is not Ego nor is
it Non-ego, not even Atma, but verily the one source of all manifestations
and modes of existence."

Thanks for responding Morten,

Please, try to understand that this email is written out of compassion to
all of us.
Please...
Cass: I also come from that same place.

Cass wrote:
"I am not that concerned Morten"

I would say and suggest, that you AUGHT to be concerned.
ParaBrahman is real.

Cass: Para Brahman is in his heavens and all is well. I know that ParaBrahman is real as he is at the source of all creation.

Cass wrote:
"If this knowledge had been freely available to any book reader we would

Be careful. It might happen!

Cass: My fears entirely, was it Keely that understood vril energy but destroyed the evidence as he feared it would result in disaster if placed in the wrong hands?

One aught to seek wisdom and act wisely.
Please remember, that I have in all this only been talking in general
terms - and not about Blavatsky alone.
I am quite certain, that those Seekers after Truth, who yet do NOT really
and honestly Know, what is good to publish and make officially available -
and what NOT to make officially available - aught NOT to publish anything
new - ie. anything not yet published. And they aught to carefully consider
their conscience when copying papers from other authuors and while later
distributing them - for instance distributing them on the Internet. We all
have something to learn.
If any writer, author or Seeker just without compassion publishes anything
they can get hold on without verifying, what compassion is, they will also
have to face the consequences of misleading a number of Seekers.

Cass: I agree that the road can be rocky but we must also learn to discriminate between what is false and what is fact. I am sure that the karmic consequences are tied in to motive.

I am in fact talking about unconscious sorcery. When one becomes a wellknown face or a wellknown teacher one better think twice before one starts playing with fire and go publishing just anything, - and especially anything on the Internet, because it has a larger and broader audience.

Cass: Perhaps their reasons are driven through ignorance rather than through evil? I am partially convinced that any press for HPB is good press, that it is better to give a version of the ancient truths, even as a substitute theory, than to continue down the path of christianity, et al.



Master Morya said that Blavatsky was too outspoken,
and yet Blavatsky was FORBIDDEN to say what she Knew:

"You know K.H. and me -- buss! know you anything of the whole Brotherhood
and its ramifications? The Old Woman is accused of untruthfulness,
inaccuracy in her statements. "Ask no questions and you will receive no
lies." She is forbidden to say what she knows. You may cut her to pieces and
she will not tell. Nay -- she is ordered in cases of need to mislead people;
and, were she more of a natural born liar -- she might be happier and won
her day long since by this time. But that's just where the shoe pinches,
Sahib. She is too truthful, too outspoken, too incapable of dissimulation:
and now she is being daily crucified for it. Try not to be hasty, respected
Sir. The world was not made in a day; nor has the tail of the yak developed
in one year. Let evolution take its course naturally -- lest we make it
deviate and produce monsters by presuming to guide it. "
http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/mahatma/ml-47.htm (Received Allahabad,
3rd March, 1882.)

Cass: I guess HPB as a personality was unable to deal in parables. Morya understood that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing in the wrong minds, but 100 years have passed, and the world is crying out for an alternative philosophy that synthesises, science and religion.



A quote from Blavatsky:
"It is well known that the first rule of the society is to carry out the
object of forming the nucleus of a universal brotherhood. The practical
working of this rule was explained by those who laid it down, to the
following effect:-- HE WHO DOES NOT PRACTISE ALTRUISM; HE WHO IS NOT PREPARED TO SHARE HIS LAST
MORSEL WITH A WEAKER OR POORER THAN HIMSELF; HE WHO NEGLECTS TO HELP HIS
BROTHER MAN, OF WHATEVER RACE, NATION, OR CREED, WHENEVER AND WHEREVER HE
MEETS SUFFERING, AND WHO TURNS A DEAF EAR TO THE CRY OF HUMAN MISERY; HE WHO
HEARS AN INNOCENT PERSON SLANDERED, WHETHER A BROTHER THEOSOPHIST OR NOT,
AND DOES NOT UNDERTAKE HIS DEFENCE AS HE WOULD UNDERTAKE HIS OWN--IS NO
THEOSOPHIST.

Lucifer, November, 1887"
("LET EVERY MAN PROVE HIS OWN WORK")
http://www.blavatsky.net/blavatsky/arts/LetEveryManProveHisOwnWork.htm


OCCULTISM VERSUS THE OCCULT ARTS
"Let then those who will dabble in magic, whether they understand its nature
or not, but who find the rules imposed upon students too hard, and who,
therefore lay Atma-Vidya or Occultism aside--go without it. Let them become
magicians by all means, even though they do become Voodoos and Dugpas for
the next ten incarnations."
http://www.blavatsky.net/blavatsky/arts/OccultismVersusTheOccultArts.htm


Master Morya says:

"On the other hand we claim to know more of the secret cause of events than
you men of the world do. I say then that it is the vilification and abuse of
the founders, the general misconception of the aims and objects of the
Society that paralyses its progress -- nothing else. There's no want of
definitiveness in these objects were they but properly explained. The
members would have plenty to do were they to pursue reality with half the
fervour they do mirage. I am sorry to find you comparing Theosophy to a
painted house on the stage whereas in the hands of true philanthropists and
theosophists it might become as strong as an impregnable fort. The situation
is this: men who join the Society with the one selfish object of reaching
power making occult science their only or even chief aim may as well not
join it -- they are doomed to disappointment as much as those who commit the
mistake of letting them believe that the Society is nothing else. It is just
because they preach too much "the Brothers" and too little if at all
Brotherhood that they fail. How many times had we to repeat, that he who
joins the Society with the sole object of coming in contact with us and if
not of acquiring at least of assuring himself of the reality of such powers
and of our objective existence -- was pursuing a mirage? I say again then.

Cass: Again it comes to motive, he appears to be referring to those who want to become occultists for power, authority and prestige over their fellow men. That basically these are either weeded out very early in the piece or fall prey to their baser instincts.

It is he alone who has the love of humanity at heart, who is capable of
grasping thoroughly the idea of a regenerating practical Brotherhood who is
entitled to the possession of our secrets. He alone, such a man -- will
never misuse his powers, as there will be no fear that he should turn them
to selfish ends. A man who places not the good of mankind above his own good
is not worthy of becoming our chela -- he is not worthy of becoming higher
in knowledge than his neighbour. If he craves for phenomena let him be
satisfied with the pranks of spiritualism."
http://www.theosociety.org/pasadena/mahatma/ml-38.htm (Received Allahabad.
About February, 1882. )



Master Morya was struggling in 1882. Do you think things have improved since
he wrote this???

Let us have more Brotherhood and Sisterhood - ie. more Altruism and more
wise
teachings - teachings adapted to time, place, people and circumstances in a
wise manner.


I am not concerned in any negative sense of the word. But concerned I am.

Cass: I am getting a sense of fear coming from you that occult knowledge must be for only the righteous, but who can decide, who is righteous. Perhaps I am complacent but I believe that the Masters are watching over us and will not allow anything to stop the divine plan of evolution.

I am not that concerned Morten, as I believe that before the Vril energy can
be used it must be understood at a personal level. HPB would not have
allowed anything 'dangerous' or 'revealing' to be put into print. I have
read that we are tested many many times before we are accepted as a chela,
and not at a physical level either. It is OK to say these things and much
more exist that we cannot begin to understand, but only through personal
experience are we taught to know, handle and control these forces. If this
knowledge had been freely available to any book reader we would have blown
up this planet twice over.

So you find no harm in making a certain scientist or two aware of how to use

Some theosophical texts will most certainly have a great risk of creating a
dugpa out of some readers of it. Or circumstances not wanted. Aught such
texts not only to be revealed to those Seekers ready for their content?

Wisdom is still important.

Here is my take on the following.

With passage of time what was once esoteric/hidden becomes exoteric.

The real secrets are never to be found written anywhere as much of it has
to
learned to read between the lines and using one's intuition.

Hence, I do not see any problem in making what has already been printed or
handwritten to be made available on the Internet.

For those who are not yet ready to really understand, even when truth
stares
at them when they read a written material, they are likely to be blind to
it
and do not see it.

In my own personal experience, there are items I have read decades ago
which
did not make much sense then are now making more sense and am able to
understand better.

PS: I read somewhere that a great man said "Nothing created by human mind
is
sacred"
