PEDRO AND CWL 'TEACHINGS'
Aug 04, 2006 02:57 PM
Only now I read your message below in a proper way. Your authoritarism is touching.
Also remarkable the contrast between your authoritarianism, in questions relating to the movement, and your bright view of things in some general, abstract topics.
No one is perfect!
As to Leadbeater not having being expelled, that must a a joke. Yes,yolu are right. He was only kindly invited to resign, and warned that, if he did not do so, he would be then formally expelled.
As soon as poor old Olcott died, Leadbeater was invited back to Adyar TS, BECAUSE Annie Besant, his disciple, had then complete power in her hands, as both President and Outer Head.
Would you, Pedro, trust a son of yours, or a nephew to Leadbeater and his sex lessons?
Difficult to face the failures of the movement?
You can see Radha's position is much better than yours.
I had asked you some serious questions about the current situation
on theos-talk and your participation in it and you decided to ignore
them all, telling me instead there is no need for 'nervousness' on
my part. Besides that, you continued your attacks on the Adyar TS
and on Leadbeater, which indicates to me that any attempt of
dialogue with you is not possible.
But for the benefit of readers I will set the record straight on
something you have repeated here *ad nauseam* and which is simply
1. Leadbeater was never expelled from the TS by Olcott. He tendered
his resignation from the Society to Olcott at the Advisory Board
meeting, convened by HSO in London on 16 May 1906, to examine the
charges against L. coming from members of the American Section. At
that meeting there were fierce exchanges between those who wanted L.
expelled from the Society (G. R. S. Mead and Bertram Keightley, for
example) and those who suggested that his resignation be accepted
(Sinnett). The meeting eventually decided to accept his resignation.
2. Leadbeater was invited back into the TS by a vote of the General
Council, the governing body of the Society, at its meeting in
December 1908, which was almost two years after Olcott had passed
away. Needless to say, that was not without controversy as, for
example, many well-known members of the English Section resigned
over that decision.
