Re:SOCRATES' INNER LINK

Cass,

If you want to ignore the mass of evidences I brought to you, or the fact that HPB wrote the text "ARE CHELAS MEDIUMS?", go ahead. Up to you.

Best regards,  Carlos.

But he had his "familiar spirit" as they call it, his daimonion; and this invisible counsellor became the cause of his death. It is generally believed that if he was not initiated into the Mysteries it was because he himself neglected to become so. But the "Secret Records' teach us that it was because he could not be admitted to participate in the sacred rites, and precisely, as we state, on account of his mediumship." Isis P117, Book 2
